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
