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?
