Brian Dunkleman, eat your heart out. Ryan Seacrest has been handed another high-profile gig on Fox, hot on the heels of the announcement that the metrosexual softie will be “hosting” the Super Bowl in February.
Ryan (who, as we’ve pointed out, did an extraordinarily professional and straightforward Dickclarkian job hosting the last season of American Idol) comes the announcement that he’ll take over as host of the 2007 Primetime Emmy Awards next month (thankfully, somewhere in between, the next season of Idol and New Year’s Rockin’ Eve will bridge the Fox-without-Seacrest gap.
But what a choice. Traditionally, the Emmy host is someone with comedic experience who can launch the show with a brisk monolgue, make fun of a few folks in the crowd and keep the show moving with funny bits.
Ry-Ry had better hope that Simon Cowell is in the first couple of rows so he can point out his manboobs. The Emmys show airs September 16th on Fox.
