Snooze Fest

Last night I made the terrible mistake of watching the Emmy Awards telecast.

Boooooring! I kept hoping it would get better but unfortunately it didn’t.

The five hosts were an embarrassment. Sure they can read cue cards for their “unscripted” shows, but what were they trying to prove last night? Each of them should never be allowed to host the Emmy Awards ever again, and the category of Best Host for a Reality Series needs to be eliminated.

Yeah for Tina Fey and “30 Rock.”

Yeah for Don Rickles.

Yeah for “Mad Men.”

Yeah for Josh Groban performing thirty television theme songs in less than five minutes.

Yeah for Ricky Gervais.

It was the least watched Emmy Awards in television history. Maybe next year the producers will put “entertainment” back into the show.
