Neil Patrick Harris to host Emmy Awards

The producers of the 2013 Emmys are our new favorite set of folks, since they heard our plea to just let Neil Patrick Harris emcee everything, already.

The "How I Met Your Mother" star and host of this year's Tony awards has also been asked to lead the Emmys ceremony in September. It'll be his second time hosting, as the actor previously had the same gig at 2009's show.

“I couldn't be more honored and excited to be hosting this year's Emmy Awards,” Harris said in a statement. “And what perfect timing – I'll just do the exact same script I'm about to use for the Tonys. ‘And the Emmy for Best Revival of a Musical goes to ‘Breaking Bad!’ See, told you it works.”

We can look forward to more of his quips when the Emmys airs on September 22 on CBS.
