    Yay! Kathy Griffin is a BIG name to host the Daytime Emmys! Much bigger than recent hosts: Wayne Brady, Sam Champion, Anderson Cooper, etc. SUPER ecstatic for this year’s ceremony.

    Exactly what the world needs. Another country music awards show.

    Couldn’t stand Kathy Griffin and I really don’t like all of her work not to mention her horrible guest appearance on The Price is Right back in January.
