The Primetime Emmys premiered with their usual performance, with host Jane Lynch "singing" her way through a fairly long love song to that "wonderland" that is TV. (She said she'd be lip-syncing, since, of course, they don't even let her sing that much on "Glee.")
The concept was that all of TV was housed in one building, and so Lynch did her musical number through the set of "The Big Bang Theory" before bumping into Ron Swanson, admitting that yeah, this thing was going on a bit long.
The best part, many seem to agree, was when Lynch stumbled onto the "Mad Men's" set and made a pass at Elisabeth Moss' Peggy. She tells her that in the future, women can marry women, prompting Moss' character to say: "Does that mean women don’t have to sleep with men anymore to make it to the top?" Lynch: "They still have to do that."
So what did you guys think? Did the "Mad Men" riff not save the opener, or were you enjoying it all the way through?
Lynch ended up not taking the outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series Emmy, however - that award went to Julie Bowen, who said in her acceptance speech that now she won't have anything to talk about in therapy since she actually won something.
She also thanked her TV husband, Ty Burrell, who won the outstanding supporting actor in a comedy series and gave a well-timed, funny acceptance speech.
What do you think? Are the awards on target so far?
