Hosts Emmy Awards for the second time

27 Aug, 2006

O’Brien hosts the 58th Primetime Emmy Awards for a second time. Held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, the show opens with a sketch featuring the host in various TV show situations such as Lost, The Office, 24, and South Park, among others. He also performs a song and dance number about NBC’s dipping ratings to the tune of The Music Man’s song Ya Got Trouble. On the biggest challenge of hosting the Emmys:

To find a way to make it fun. If you do the preparation and you get some good ideas, it’s fun. When I’m having a good time, people say “that was really good.” And that’s key for me. When I’m not having a good time it’s just not as good, it’s not terrible but… That’s the goal for me, to remember that hosting an award show should be fun.
