    Want to share any opinions of the 60th Primetime Emmy Awards?

    Whose idea was it to have the reality show hosts as the hosts of the show? Heads will roll!

    Based on this year's performances, next year's host should be Jimmy Kimmel, Steve Carrell or Ricky Gervais.

    Individually and on their respective reality shows, the hosts do well, but the Emmys stage isn't just for them. Ricky Gervais' bit with Steve Carell was one of the few LOL moments of the night. Jimmy Kimmel acting as a reality host while presenting the award for Reality Show Host was even funnier than all of the nominees combined!

    I was expecting more from the Josh Groban medley and more TV moments to be shown.

    I guess they cut a bunch of stuff because they ran long. I couldn't figure out what made it so long, though. I read some reviews and they panned the Josh Groban bit. I thought there were some awkward moments, but overall I thought it was fun. You usually see him doing classical numbers, so it was great hearing him do funny voices.
