It’s not easy being an Emmys host. In fact, it’s so difficult, Neil Patrick Harris opened the 2013 Emmys with an entire gag dedicated to its difficult. Hosts of Emmys past — Jimmy Kimmel, Jane Lynch, Jimmy Fallon, and Conan O’Brien — joined NPH on-stage for the Emmy Awards’ opening skit, which also featured funny ladies Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.
NPH pulled off a few funny one-liners during his opening monologue, most notably: “Or as Paula Deen would have said, orange is the new African American.” But did the How I Met Your Mother star rely too much on former Emmy hosts — and scene-stealer Kevin Spacey — to open the show?
Tell us what you think, TV fans. Did NPH steal the show with his charisma, or should he stick to the Tonys? Sound off in the comments!
