Neil Patrick Harris will once again preside over Broadway’s biggest night as the host of this year’s Tony Awards.

CBS announced early Tuesday that the How I Met Your Mother thesp will emcee the 66th annual ceremony on June 10. This marks Harris’ third time host the Tonys, following stints in 2009 and 2011.

“I’m thrilled to be a part of this year’s Tony Awards,” said Harris. “Not only will I be shining a spotlight on the best that Broadway has to offer, but hopefully I’ll score some free house seats to a show – or five!”

  • I tuned in to last year’s Tony’s, and I don’t even usually watch Awards shows! Glad to hear he’s hosting again, last year’s was fun to watch.
