At last night's Emmys, Neil Patrick Harris was joined on stage by former hosts Conan O'Brien, Jane Lynch, Jimmy Kimmel, and Jimmy Fallon in order to get advice on how to successfully MC TV's biggest night.

No help necessary, guys! Because NPH just scored the highest ratings for the Emmys since 2006!

Early return numbers have last night's telecast clocking in at double digit increases from last year!

The fast national average showed the ceremony earned a 4.3 rating among adults 18-49, a 30 percent jump from last year's initial and final figures!

So, it's official: Neil is THE host that can boast the most! High friggin' five, dude!

The Emmys might have football to thank for their ratings boost though with a lead-in from late game NFL action that no doubt helped them in their ratings blitz.

But it was also football that won the night overall!

Sunday Night Football, over on NBC, easily topped the Emmys with a 6.9 rating and more than 18 and a half MILLION viewers!

Well, then next time you host anything Neil, make sure you come out wearing pads and a helmet!

    I'd thank NPH, of course, and the cast of Breaking Bad. LOL one of the main reasons I watched was for them.

    its not that the show is so great or because of NPH, its because tv in general is so bad. it was football or this. its different, its not the same old thing. thats it, its not because its so good. it was boring, just different boring.

  4. 4

    Didn't watch since they did not do a tribute to Jack Klugman or Larry Hagnman. Spent the time on the Internet instead.
