John Stamos has pulled out as co-host of the 2015 Emmy Awards nominations, and “Deadbeat’s” Cat Deeley will fill the “Grandfathered” star’s shoes.

Stamos’ departure was blamed on a scheduling conflict and a rep was not immediately available to elaborate. In addition to “Grandfathered,” Stamos’ upcoming Fox sitcom, the actor is a producer on — and will appear in — Netflix’s “Fuller House.” He also appears in the upcoming sequel to “My Big Fat Greek Wedding.”

In June, the Beverly Hills Police Department arrested him for driving under the influence. His court date had been set for Sept. 11.

Deeley is no stranger to Emmy nominations morning, as she has four nominations in the host of a reality competition category for Fox’s “So You Think You Can Dance.” “Orange Is the New Black’s” Uzo Aduba, who received last year’s Emmy Award for guest actress in a comedy, is still on board to co-host the announcements. They are scheduled for 8:30 a.m. PT July 16 and will take place at the Pacific Design Center.

Andy Samberg is hosting this year’s Primetime Emmy Awards, which are being held Sept. 20 at the Microsoft Theater (formerly Nokia Theatre) in downtown Los Angeles. Fox is broadcasting the ceremony live starting at 5 p.m. PT that day. Don Mischer will serve as executive producer for the telecast.

  1. Stamos is in rehab, per TMZ and Entertainment Weekly. It’s not a ‘scheduling conflict’.
