Is Jon Cryer the first to win best supporting and lead character on same show?

Asked by buckyboy28 (4938 points ) September 24th, 2012

Jon Cryer won Best Supporting Actor in 2009 and Best Lead Actor last night for his role on “Two and a Half Men”. I know Ed Asner won both for his role as Lou Grant, but it was on two separate shows (“The Mary Tyler Moore Show” and “Lou Grant”, the spin-off).

Is Cryer the first to win both awards for the same role on the same show?

Maybe Kelsey Grammar as Fraisier (on three dif. shows) but I’m guessing.

I have not seen the show lately. Did they expand Cryer’s role after Charlie Sheen was replaced? I don’t think that there is a role expansion that often on a single show, so this very well may be a first.
