[ # ] Was Stephen Colbert hosting the Emmys CBS’s pity ask?
January 23rd, 2017 under Stephen Colbert


Last year, The Late Late Show’s James Corden hosted the Tony’s and Jimmy Kimmel Live’s Kimmel hosted the Emmys, this year The Tonight Show’s Jimmy Fallon hosted the Golden Globes, Corden is hosting the Grammys and Kimmel is hosting the Oscars. The only 11:30p late night host to not host a major awards show was Stephen Colbert. In fact, people were wondering if CBS was ever going to give him one. Well they finally did and it is the Emmys. Which makes you wonder if they really wanted him to do it or they are doing it so they can everyone they have faith in him.
I am thinking the latter. When CBS announced that he was going to take over for David Letterman, I was super excited to see what he was going to do with The Late Show. Then when he released viral videos leading up to the show, I thought he was going to be #1. Then his show debuted and I couldn’t even get through the first episode. He is so awful, I can’t even watch bits from his show on YouTube all the way through. They fall flat and his interviews are painful, so how is he going to host TV’s biggest night successfully?
Plus, does he know anything about television? CBS should’ve given it to Corden and said sorry Colbert we will find something else for you. Or maybe they should have given it to one of the people who is currently on their air like Michael Weatherly or Matthew Perry or Thomas Lennon or Will Arnett.
It is bad enough that the noms will probably be little watched shows with barely known celebrities, having him host the shindig is going to lead to disastrous ratings. Oh well, I guess they wanted to let the world that they still believe him. Even though most people don’t any more.
