With Neil Patrick Harris as Host, Are You More Likely to Watch the Emmys?

It's official: Neil Patrick Harris will host this year's Emmys! He was definitely high on my list of stars who would make good hosts and to my delight, he was rumored to be hosting the Emmys soon after his stint as host at the Tony Awards. He seems comfortable hosting and he obviously has such charming stage presence. His reaction to the news about hosting the Emmys is pretty hilarious:

"After having had such a hoot hosting the Tonys, I was thrilled to get the call about the prime-time Emmys," said Harris, adding that he looks forward to "adding my own voice" to the ceremony: "But which voice to choose? I'm torn between gangsta, foppish Brit, and robot. Really proud of my robot. We'll see what happens on the night."

I have much respect for anyone who uses the words "gangsta, foppish Brit, and robot" in one sentence.

When the rumors were swirling, some of you mentioned that you'd now tune in to watch the Emmys on TV. Would you have watched it otherwise? Does this make you more inclined to check out the ceremony on Sept. 20?

I love NPH, but the Emmys are usually a snore. I can't imagine that he can spice it up enough to make it interesting.

Wooooo! Love it. I agree with shoshie too though, I would have watched it anyway but now I'll actually watch the whole thing in full without skipping to my favourite parts.

I think I need another vote option. I'll usually watch the Emmys with the FF button, but with NPH hosting, I'll slow it down and enjoy the little banters and breaks in between awards. I just hope he sings again like at the Tonys.
