ABC has just announced that Jimmy Kimmel, best known as the host of Jimmy Kimmel Live and The Man Show, will be hosting the 64th annual Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday, September 23.

This will be Jimmy’s first time hosting the Emmy Awards but it’s hardly his first hosting gig. In addition to his two late night shows and a stint hosting Win Ben Stein’s Money in the early Comedy Central days, Jimmy has previously hosted the American Music Awards and the ESPY Awards.

Last year’s Emmy Awards host was Glee’s Jane Lynch. Will Jimmy be able to live up to Jane? We’ll have to wait until September to find out.
