Seth Meyers to Host 2014 Primetime Emmys
The Television Academy announced that SNL alum and new late night talk show host Seth Meyers, who has won an Emmy himself, and been nominated countless times for his work on Saturday Night Live, will host this year's Emmy awards. I am mixed about this decision. I have always liked Seth, and think that his new show is pretty good. That being said I think that hosting the Emmys might be a bit of a stretch. Who knows? He could be excellent and bring the goofy charm that made him famous, or he could be swallowed up by the magnanimity of the event. I will say this for a fact though: it will be incredibly hard to follow Neil Patrick Harris (even one of his weaker hosting efforts), and there will be a lot of pressure on him to bring the ratings which will be difficult in August and on a Monday night instead of the usual Sunday. Good luck to Seth! As always we'll have to wait and see.
