Emmy’s host with the most? Craig Ferguson

Craigfergusonem I think the first powwow between CBS execs and Emmy telecast exec producer Don Mischer was held today on the question of who will host the kudocast. After last year's debacle with the painfully un-funny reality-group approach, this year's emcee had better be good — damn good.

I vote for Craig Ferguson. For one, he's in the CBS family, and I think he'd bring just the right folksy-funny charm to the evening, as he does most every weeknight on "The Late Late Show" in his observational-conversational monologue. And here's a thought — why not deputize Ricky Gervais to serve as the night's sole award presenter? Now that would be fun.
