Seth Meyers used to be some guy who did sorta-fake news once a week on a late-night Saturday show. But look at him now! He's the host of his own late-night talk show right behind Jimmy Fallon, and today NBC named him the host of the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards.
The Emmys won't be Meyers' first time hosting an awards show. He helmed back-to-back ESPY Awards—ESPN's trophies for jocks—in 2010 and 2011.
Meyers follows Neil Patrick Harris, who hosted the Emmys for CBS last year, and prior to that it was Jimmy Kimmel (2012), Jane Lynch (2011), Jimmy Fallon (2010), Neil Patrick Harris (again; 2009), and the travesty that was all those reality show hosts sharing the responsibility (2008).
The 2014 Emmys will be broadcast on Monday, August 25 at 8pm Eastern/5pm Pacific on NBC.
How do you think Meyers will do as a host?
