Emmys tonight hosted by Neil Patrick Harris

Award shows have become, at best, tedious and predictable, but tonight I recommend everyone watch the Emmys for one reason and one reason only: Neil Patrick Harris.

Harris is easily the best thing about How I Met Your Mother (premieres tomorrow night on it!), making Barney Stinson a hilarious, sympathetic, 3-dimensional character. If you've never seen him in the web-based, Joss Whedon-written miniseries sensation Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, watch it now. Besides that, though, NPH is a showman. After his stint on Doogie Howser, he became Broadway-bound and quite successfully, too. He knows how to sing, he knows how to act, he knows how to own a stage and put on a quality live performance. He hosted the Tonys this year and I think he might be able to single-handedly redeem the Emmys, at least for this year. So check it out! But don't forget to DVR Mad Men, too!
