Jane Lynch = Emmy host?


"Fox is taking a page from CBS' playbook, going with a standout performer on a hit comedy series as the host of the Primetime Emmy Awards. After How I Met Your Mother co-star Neil Patrick Harris garnered rave reviews as Emmy host of the CBS-carried ceremony, word is that Fox is close to locking Glee co-star Jane Lynch for emcee duties this year. Under the recently signed new eight-year deal between the Big 4 broadcast networks and the TV Academy, the Emmy Awards will air on Fox this September, with Mark Burnett executive producing. Lynch already did a good job for Fox hosting the network's upfront presentations for the past 2 years as her Glee character Sue Sylvester."
