ABC turned to its late-night host Jimmy Kimmel to emcee the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards. Don Mischer, who produced this year’s Academy Awards with Bryan Grazer, also on ABC, is on board to produce the Emmy telecast on Sept. 23. While he has hosted other awards shows, including the American Music Awards and the ESPY Awards, this is Kimmel’s first time hosting the Emmys. For Mischer, this will be Emmy producing gig No.12. “We love television and look forward to working with the Television Academy and ABC in creating a show that is fast-paced, humorous, unpredictable and at times irreverent, but clearly celebratory of our incredible industry,” Mischer said. It was ABC’s previous turn carrying the Primetime Emmys that produced the most universally panned host performance with Ryan Seacrest, Tom Bergeron, Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel and Jeff Probst.
