    Hahaha that was hilarious. They have good chemistry. Kind of wish they were hosting the actual emmys.

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

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

    • Amy says:

      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!

    • Victoria says:

      Jane Lynch is hosting this year.

    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?

  12. Ace says:

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

  13. Amber says:

    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… :-)

  15. Mikos says:

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

  16. Tiffany says:

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