Stephen Colbert To Host Emmys On CBS In Sept.

NEW YORK (AP) — Stephen Colbert will host the annual Emmy Awards telecast, this year to be shown on his home network of CBS.

The annual awards show honoring the best in television will take place on Sept. 17 in Los Angeles.

Colbert is host of the “Late Show” on CBS, and the former host of Comedy Central’s “Colbert Report.” In talking about hosting the 69th Emmy telecast, Colbert made sly reference to the Trump administration’s unprovable assertion that Trump’s inauguration was the most watched ever.

Said Colbert: “This will be the largest audience to witness an Emmys, period. Both in person and around the globe.”

If Colbert is allowed to politicize this already terrible, OTA broadcast-insensitive awards/program, it will be an absolute disaster. I like Colbert, but hope he and CBS are taking some lessons from the current media “demoralizing” of the presidency that is going on. Despite the fact that it might be the right approach for the Hollywood audience, it’s going to turn off a lot of the viewers, IMHO
