Neil Patrick Harris To Host the Emmys

'HIMYM' star will also host Tonys

As had been speculated, Neil Patrick Harris will host CBS’ broadcast of the Emmys on Sept. 22.

Harris’ latest hosting commitment will follow his recently announced Tony hosting duties in June.

“Neil is the quintessential host – engaging, entertaining and a true showman – with a passion for celebrating the medium we all love,”  said CBS Entertainment prexy Nina Tassler.

Harris hosted the Emmys the last time they were broadcast on CBS, in 2009.

“Four years ago, Neil was an amazing Emmy host and we are excited to have him back,” said Television Academy chairman and CEO Bruce Rosenblum. “Neil is an extremely gifted and inventive performer, and we look forward to seeing what he has in store this year.”

Ken Ehrlich is exec producing the kudos for CBS.

“Neil is one of the most versatile artists currently working in television,” Ehrlich said. “It’s going to be great fun to utilize his acting, hosting, musical and producing talents on the Emmys. … We’ve had the pleasure of working together on other award shows in the past, and to have him bring all of that versatility to this year’s Emmy telecast again is very exciting for all of us working on the production.”

The final-season premiere of “How I Met Your Mother,” which Harris co-stars in, is the night after the Emmys.
