NPH For 2009 Emmy Host: Let The Healing Begin

Neil Patrick Harris, we turn to you in these dark times for the TV biz.  After the abomination of an Emmy Awards broadcast that America had to gag, snore, and wretch through last Sunday night, only a performer with the talent of NPH can save this bloated industry group-grope from itself.

NPH was a beacon of snarky hope as this year’s Emmy show was tanking around him … “thanks to the prattling of Howie Mandel my bit’s been cut” he said with perfect deadpan timing.  Prattling is actually the kindest thing you could say about that no-talent, bottom feeder.  He and four other reality show hacks exposed themselves for what they are during their co-hosting stint … bloviating carnival barkers.  Thanks to Heidi Klum, the Emmy audience was treated to one of the creepiest moments in award show history … Tom Bergeron and William Shatner ripping her clothes off to expose a skimpy outfit.  It made the Janet Jackson wardrobe malfunction at the Super Bowl seem classy by comparison.

Okay.  Enough of that.  Let’s get back to the real purpose of this blog … singing the praises of NPH.  Have you seen “Doctor Horrible’s Sing-Along-Blog” … it’s priceless.  Check it out on iTunes or the web, and get ready for a big DVD rollout in the coming weeks.  It’s a cheeky mad scientist musical from Joss Wheldon the man behind “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Firefly.”  NPH is Doctor Horrible, getting his geek on as he chases the girl of his dreams … and world domination.  It’s great stuff.

NPH is also the main reason the CBS sitcom “How I Met Your Mother” keeps its cred and cool.  “Barney” would be a sleazy bore in less skilled hands … NPH makes him human.  And, seriously … would the “Harold and Kumar” movies be half as much fun without him … heck no, I say.  I’d say hell no, but this is a family blog … oops.  Anyway, NPH has been delivering quality performances since “Doogie Howser MD” … it’s time for the Emmy folks to give him the spotlight he deserves.

One last thing on the Emmy’s … the true talent of actors and writers like Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert, Jon Stewart, Bryan Fuller and Conan O’Brien will always rise above the frauds like Howie Mandel and company.  The Emmy’s are supposed to be a showcase of the best television has to offer, for the love of all that’s good and holy, let them help put the show together.  With a team like that, and NPH as host, people might actually want to watch again.

So the campaign begins now … NPH for Emmy host, NPH for Emmy host, NPH for Emmy host.

  1. Wow, what a fun article…..finally, someone blasting the bombastic B.S. of hollywood TV…U R a man after my own heart.

    First, Steven Colbert “warned” us with his shtick about the producer of the Emmy Show this year…….saying, basically, they only hear insults….being par for the mental “course” of Hollywood (hint: reality TV hell 😉

    So, I sadly didn’t watch the show…..being forewarned by Steven in one of his ‘moments’….Although I still get onto him (and Stewart) about not commenting more about Tibet/Olympics/China since they R presently the main source for real news these daiz 😉

    All of that is to say that we hold comedians up to a higher standard these days, because the “TV News” has sunk so low. TV never was THAT great, but jeez……it definitely has reached a new low……

    We download all our shows from the internet…..Colbert, 30 Rock, Stargate Atlantis, Fringe, Lost & Heros (for comedic relief;-), Stewart, and of course…..”Doctor Horrible’s Sing-Along-Blog”!!!!! 🙂

    OMG, U R so right about that…..it is beyond funny. It starts out campy, and gets nutty….and NPH shines in the role. Who would have guessed that he had such a good voice? 🙂

    Though he is gaining a well deserved rep as savior of lost causes (witness latest “Harold & Kumar” movie…where he was The only redeeming value there)

    Thanks for this bright fun article today…..made my day, dude!

    NPH for Emmy Director & host!
