It’s not every day you win an Emmy, TV’s top prize, and W. Kamau Bell, host of CNN’s United Shades of America, is making the most of it. Too bad some of CNN’s other top talent and Emmy winners—Anderson Cooper and Don Lemon—are unimpressed.​

United Shades of America with W. Kamau Bell returned for season three on CNN on Sunday, April 29, at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
