Late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel will host the 2012 Primetime Emmy Awards on Sept. 23, ABC announced Monday.
Kimmel, 44, who has previously hosted the ESPY Awards and the American Music Awards, has big shoes to fill sinceÂ Glee‘s Jane Lynch hosted the awards in 2011.
Director/producer Don Mischer will executive produce the telecast for the 12th time.
I think Kimmel is the perfect fit. He’s funny without being too inappropriate for primetime.
