Ryan Seacrest Tapped To Host Emmy Awards


Am I the only person who doesn’t like Ryan Seacrest? I think I must be, especially since reviews of his accomplishments (hosting “American Idol,” “New Year’s Rockin’ Eve,” his stints on “E! News,” etc.) as well as his gig on the radio always get such rave reviews that I often think I’m the only one who doesn’t get this guy – at all.

If I don’t, then fair enough. It’s possible that I just don’t realize what I’m missing and since it was just announced that he’ll be playing host at the 59th Primetime Emmy Awards this year in September, I’ll probably miss that, too.

According to Mark Darnell, president of “alternative entertainment” at FOX, and who will be airing the Emmy’s this year:

Seacrest “is a consummate host of major live broadcast events and a proven talent who always makes it look easy, which makes him the perfect choice for this year’s Emmy telecast.”

Dick Askin, Chairman of the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences which awards the Emmy’s, also endored Seacrest:

“(He) appeals to a broad audience…so he should serve as a magnet for attracting a diverse array of viewers to our Emmy telecast.”

The Emmy Awards will be broadcast on Sunday, September 16, from Los Angeles.
