Jimmy Kimmel to Host Emmy Awards on ABC

ABC late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel was tapped Monday to host the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards.

Executive producer Don Mischer returns for a record 12th time and will work with Kimmel, who has previously hosted the American Music Awards and ESPY Awards.

“We are thrilled to have been asked to produce the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards,” Mischer said in a statement. “We love television and look forward to working with the Television Academy and ABC in creating a show that is fast-paced, humorous, unpredictable, and at times irreverent, but clearly celebratory of our incredible industry.”

The Emmy Awards, honoring the best in television, airs Sept. 23 on ABC.
