Jimmy Kimmel Is Hosting the Emmys

Jimmy Kimmel will host this year's Emmy Awards on Sept. 23, his second big hosting gig of 2012 after the White House Correspondents' Dinner next month. "I hope to be able to do for the Emmys this year what Eddie Murphy did for the Oscars,” he said. So prepare for the Emmys producer to make an offensive comment and resign, Kimmel to pull out of hosting and then to make a universally reviled family movie. If he really wants to do everything Murphy did for the Oscars, that is. Otherwise, probably just expect a pretty normal and fun Emmys broadcast.
