Hosting the Emmys isn’t like hosting the Oscars. Most of the time, people won’t remember if you were a hit or a flop within a few days, let alone years, after the show ends. (Unless you’re notoriously awful, like the reality host quintet Tom Bergeron, Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel, Jeff Probst and Ryan Seacrest back in 2008.)
All you need to do is maintain your composure, tell a few good jokes, and keep the show running smoothly. We thought Jimmy Kimmel was up to the task — taking on Mitt Romney, baiting social media with a bit about Tracy Morgan passing out on stage, and calling out rival Jon Stewart — but what did you think?
