Neil Patrick Harris Likely to Host 2009 Primetime Emmy Awards

Neil Patrick Harris in Talks to Host the Emmys

Fresh off his gig hosting the Tony Awards, Neil Patrick Harris may be taking an even bigger stage: September's Emmy Awards. Though the deal's not done, Harris is in talks to host the show, which will air Sept. 20 on CBS.

I know, the "legendary" joke is over. But seriously, wouldn't this be legendary?

Variety notes that picking Harris was "a no-brainer" after his positive reviews as emcee of the Tonys. He's also hosted the Creative Arts Emmys and the TV Land Awards, and he announced last year's Emmy nominations with Kristin Chenoweth, so he's got plenty of experience running these sorts of events.

Pretty much anyone would be a step up from last year's awkward experiment of having the five Outstanding Reality Host nominees run the show, but NPH seems particularly well-suited for the job. Would you be more likely to tune in if he were at the mic?
