The star of the CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother will host and serve as a producer of the 61st Primetime Emmy Awards broadcast on September 20th airing on CBS. Yes, nice bit of synergy. “After having had such a hoot hosting the Tonys, I was thrilled to get the call about the Primetime Emmys,” Harris said in the news release. “I’m looking forward to the challenge of the show — adding my own voice to it, while honoring the nominees and the entire year in television. But which voice to choose? I’m torn between gangsta, foppish Brit, and robot. Really proud of my robot. We’ll see what happens on the night.”
