Neil Patrick Harris Locks Up Yet Another Hosting Gig: The Emmys
We once wished Tina Fey and Amy Poehler could host everything ever, but Neil Patrick Harris would be a close second. And with him, we might just get our wish.
Only a few weeks after we learned he’d have a fourth stint hosting the Tonys, we’ve learned NPH will also helm the 2013 Emmys.
“Neil is the quintessential host – engaging, entertaining and a true showman – with a passion for celebrating the medium we all love,” CBS said of the ‘How I Met Your Mother’ star, who first hosted the Emmys in 2009. “We’re thrilled for him to return for CBS’ broadcast of the Emmy Awards.”
The official Twitter account for the award show also shared its excitement:
‘@actuallynph we are thrilled to have you as our host this year!

NPH already has two Emmys himself: one for hosting the 63rd Annual Tony Awards and the other for his guest appearance on ‘Glee,’ both of which he snagged in 2010.
