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.

Hayden Panettiere’s legal status served as an ongoing joke at last Sunday’s Emmy Awards telecast but the Heroes starlet is working hard to stop the laughs surrounding her 18th birthday.

She is scheduled to join America Ferrerra and other celeb names at a Sept. 27 private political party for Norman Lear’s Declare Yourself organization.

The bash kicks off Hollywood Celebrates 18 campaign and will be held at the Beverly Hills Cultural Center. It’s still a party and young voters will be able to act their age and dance to beats by fellow legal deejay Nick Cannon.

TV Guide Channel Changes Plastic Surgery Victims: Rinna In, Rivers Out

TV Guide has dropped Joan Rivers and daughter Melissa in favor of Lisa Rinna and her lips.

Rinna will take her first walk down the red carpet on Sept. 16, when she hosts TV Guide’s pre-coverage of the Emmy Awards. Which is nice for her, as she’s unlikely to get anywhere near a red carpet otherwise. And it’s nice for TV Guide, as she’ll be glad to share screen space with the crawl.
