Remember that segment years ago when tonight’s Primetime Emmys show started, about Excessive Host Disorder, in which the cast of How I Met Your Mother staged an intervention, with the help of Arsenio Hall? Remember the reference to the Ryan Seacrest Center for those suffering from EHD? Remember the disclaimer card you didn’t have time to read at the end of the gag? Here it is, followed by the clip:

The Ryan Seacrest Center focuses on freeing patients from addictions to hosting award shows, charitable fundraisers and “Star Search” themed reality programming. The Center makes no claims of effectiveness regarding patients who cannot resist hosting dinner parties, in laws or parasites. Rehabilitation is catered to individual needs. GUARANTEE: Each patient’s program will include sessions in the therapeutic Billy Crystal Springs and/or the world famous Pat Sajak Sweat Lodge. Incoming patients will submit to a full body cavity search for any hidden mic packs, lavs, wireless headsets, canes, envelopes, sequins and Bruce Vilanches. Please plan on arriving at least three hours before your therapy call time because the limo line is murder. Arsenio Hall is not affiliated with the Ryan Seacrest Center for Excessive Hosting. Oh, and neither is Ryan Seacrest. If you’re still reading this and believe EHD is a real affliction, you might be suffer from APB or Acute Parody Blindness. If so, contact the Mel Brooks Center for Humor in Catskills, New York.
