  • Had it not been for the boxing scene, I would have liked it.

    • My feelings exactly! There is nothing funny about a man hitting a woman in the face. Sorry. Love the actors, but that scene just killed the laughter for me.

  • That was GREAT! Who is the emcee for the Emmy’s this year? Was hoping it was Jimmy Fallon again.

    • Jane Lynch is hosting this year. That was so funny! I loved the part when he said you have to be able to pronounce Mariska Hargitay. Yep, that’s about right. Looking forward to the announcements!

      • May be learning to pronounce mariska’s name is to confuse, and instead she will have to say a very easy short name like Anna Torv?

        • Awww, that’s cute. You think the Emmys even know science fiction exists?

  • This was great. I love Melissa. How many takes do you think she needed to make it through the puppy shots? Looks like she was about to burst into laughter.

  • I would like so much to hear that Naya Rivera, Glee’s highlight of S2, be nominated!!! :)
    She really deserves more recognition from professionnals …even if Glee’s S2 sucked!

  • When are they going to have Joel Mchale host the Emmy’s? Seriously?

  • Okay, aside from the boxing thing (laaaaaaaame), this was hilarious. The puppy! And the chicken! And “I’ll… do stuff with my hands.”

  • Hey Joel McHale! I’ll do whatever it takes. I’ll do things with my hands. And I think you know what I really mean by that….or am I being too subtle?

  • Loved the Audi A7… :-)

  • Awesome. Sookie can take a punch! And she was fantastic in “Brideshead Revisited”.

  • Love it! Can we please have these two host the actual show? I’m wary of Jane Lynch, honestly.
