Or said differently: This... is your Primetime Emmy Awards.This year's Emmys have a new category — Outstanding Reality Host — and all five of its inaugural nominees will serve as cohosts of the kudoscast. Tom Bergeron (Dancing with the Stars), Howie Mandel (Deal or No Deal), Heidi Klum (Project Runway) and Jeff Probst (Survivor) will join Ryan Seacrest (American Idol), last year's theater-in-the-round ringmaster, in overseeing the proceedings when ABC broadcasts the ceremony on Sept. 21. What's your take? A fun twist (albeit one that further rubs salt in Phil Keoghan's wound), or a harsh reality about the format's dominance on the TVscape? Your comments... after this. But first...! — Matt Mitovich read more

Exclusive: Ellen, Office Accountants Make a Deal

For that matter, it's been a very long time since fans have seen DeGeneres in a dress — but that may all change in January.A good friend of Deal or No Deal host Howie Mandel (who in turn has been a frequent guest on Ellen), DeGeneres will be his game show's first celebrity spokesmodel. That's right: DeGeneres will be one of the 26 briefcase-toting, elegant, sparkly dress-wearing women who may or may not be holding the million-dollar bag. "Ellen is a great supporter of the show and we were looking for our first celebrity model. Who better to do that than Ellen?" says Libby Hansen, NBC's vice president of alternative series and specials. DeGeneres' appearance will be shot on Nov. 9 and air sometime in January 2008.Ellen fans will get an early preview of the show, since DeGeneres wi... read more

Asked about the possibility of Millionaire-esque ubiquity, the president of NBC Universal Domestic Television Distribution tells the Reporter, "We waited... to make sure the show was going to hold up, and it clearly has. [So] there's really no fear about overexposure." 'Cept when it comes to the models' skimpy dresses. read more
