Topics include: Not getting an Emmy nomination, poor box office returns, anything about the ratings on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, becoming famous for making crude jokes and a general lack of street cred or coolness.

Come on, these two are practically inseparable. The question isn't if Meyers will pop up, but rather how many times.

Not everyone's going to respond to Samberg's signature rowdiness with the same kind of enthusiasm that William H. Macy showed, which means plenty of awkward reaction shots are headed our way.

However, after the first hour or so of the show, you might have to drop this one for the sake of your liver's health.

It's hard to decide who we'd like to see pop up onstage more: nominee Andre Braugher, Samberg's childhood friend Chelsea Peretti or the always adorable, often-shirtless Terry Crews.

Feel free to take three sips if they all end up sounding like his Nicolas Cage impression, no matter who it's supposed to be.

It'll help you cover up the fact that you couldn't help but laugh at it, even though you want everyone around you to think that your sense of humor is much more sophisticated than theirs.

Sure, you know there's going to be at least one big musical number – this is Samberg, after all – but nothing prompts spontaneous musical numbers quite like the Emmy Awards. Make sure your drink is full.

CHUG YOUR DRINK FOR THE LENGTH OF TIME THAT SAMBERG HELD HIS "JOKE" FACE

You know the face: wide-eyed, open-mouthed, with a huge smile on his face, begging you to laugh at whatever he just said. And even when the camera cuts away from him to track the audience's reaction, you should assume that Samberg is still holding that face, and keep chugging until the camera is back on him. Better safe than sorry.
