We expected some records at the Emmys on Sunday night. ''John Adams'' (23 noms), NBC's ''30 Rock'' (17) and AMC's ''Mad Men'' (16) dominated many categories. Here's what broke:
-- HBO's ''John Adams'' established a new standard for most wins for a program in a single year. The miniseries walked away with a total of 13 Emmys, two more than the previous record held by HBO's ''Angels In America'' and ABC's ''Eleanor and Franklin.''
-- CBS' ''The Amazing Race'' and Comedy Central's ''The Daily Show With Jon Stewart'' both posted unprecedented sixth consecutive best series wins, breaking the record of five wins in a row held by NBC's ''Frasier'' (best comedy series) and CBS' ''The Late Show with David Letterman'' (variety/music/comedy).
-- ''Mad Men'' became the first basic cable program to win a major series category.
HBO was the top winner for the night with 10 Emmys, followed by NBC with four and ABC and AMC with three apiece.
