Could Craig Ferguson host the Emmys?

Emmy producer Dan Mischer might be considering Craig Ferguson to host the show this year:

All the talk has been about Conan O'Brien taking over The Tonight Show and Jimmy Fallon taking over Late Night, but let's not forget Craig Ferguson over at CBS' Late Late Show. He might host the Emmys this year.

That's one of the changes being discussed by producer Dan Mischer. And let's be honest here: anything would be better than last year's horrifying hosting job done by the team of Ryan Seacrest, Jeff Probst, Tom Bergeron, Heidi Klum, and Howie Mandel. It was a train wreck from start to finish, with only one moment that was kinda funny (when they gave the award for Best Reality Host and dramatically went to a commercial before announcing the winner.

I like Ferguson (though I'm not a fan of his talk show) and he'd probably make for a good host. Of course, people like Stephen Colbert, David Letterman, and the casts of 30 Rock and The Office would be good too. CBS could go with someone from their network but they don't have to (and the network that hosts the award show usually doesn't). [TV Squad]


  1. I would love Craig as host of the Emmys. I love his show too. oooo pleaeeeese!!!!!

  2. with his strong personality and witty brain,
    Craig Ferguson would make the perfect host.
    His wild and lively manner would keep the
    audience on their toes. You can't go wrong
    if you pick Craig for any award show. I
    personally would like it to be the Academy
