The Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Variety Series is a category in the Primetime Emmy Awards. It is awarded annually to the best variety show or similarly formatted program of the year. The award has sometimes been known by other names, such as "Outstanding Comedy-Variety or Music Program" and "Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Series".

From 1979 to 1988, all of the award winners were single programs, although series were nominated for the award in some of those years. Since 1994, all of the winners in this category have been late-night talk shows.

The Daily Show with Jon Stewart won the award for ten years consecutively (2003-2012), the longest winning streak for a television show in Emmy history.[1]
