The 67th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards will air on Fox this year, and the network has picked one of its sitcom stars to host the show. It’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star Andy Samberg, who used to be on “Saturday Night Live.”
Writes our good friend James Hibberd at Entertainment Weekly, “The moment the Emmy Awards’ host was brought up, we said it had to be Andy,” said Gary Newman and Dana Walden, Chairmen and CEOs, Fox Television Group. “He is fearless, hilarious, an award-winning comedian, singer, writer and actor with incredible live TV experience. We know he’ll deliver the laughs and give viewers an incredible night they will enjoy.”
The Primetime Emmys telecast takes place Sunday, Sept. 20.
