Move over Jane Lynch, there’s a new sheriff in town!

Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel, the star of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, has been crowned the host of the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards set for Sept. 23 at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.

The extremely funny and talented Kimmel joked upon hearing the announcement:

”I hope to be able to do for the Emmys this year what Eddie Murphy did for the Oscars”

Poor Eddie just can't seem to get a break. Maybe another Nutty Professor trilogy might do the trick? Lolz

The Emmy Awards honor the best of the best in TV. This is Jimmy Kimmel’s first time as host of the Emmy Awards which will be produced by ABC, the network Kimmel’s own show airs. Jimmy Kimmel Live is on its tenth season.

Congratulations, Jimbo!!!
