Hosting Quintet for 60th Annual Primetime Emmys

Tom BergeronIf you hated 2007’s Emmy Awards coverage, I have some good news and some bad news. The good news? The theater-in-the-round crap will be gone. (At least, I hope.) The bad news? Ryan Seacrest will once again be hosting. Though, in this case, he’ll be getting a little bit of help.

Instead of burdening one person with the ringleader task, the ceremony’s producers will be doling out the responsibility to five this time around. After all - who better to host a broadcast than the nominees for Outstanding Reality Host?

For the 60th Annual Primetime Emmys, those up for this year’s new category - (Dancing with the Stars), Heidi Klum (Project Runway), Howie Mandel (Deal or No Deal), Jeff Probst (Survivor) and Ryan Seacrest (American Idol) - will coincidentally be representing five different networks.

This fall’s telecast will be broadcast from Los Angeles on September 21.
