Best and Worst of the 2012 Emmy Awards
Worst: Jimmy Kimmel
The late night host wasn't nervous or mean to the talent during his first Emmy Awards hosting stint, but boy was he a bore. Kimmel's opening monologue dragged and the comedy bits he incorporated into the broadcast were embarrassingly self-serving. Did the passed out Tracey Morgan bit work? Was it in bad taste to do an In Memoriam salute for himself even if it was a joke? Was it funny to kick his parents out of the theater because they said he could accomplish anything? It was mostly painful to watch. It also didn't help that previous award show hosts Ellen DeGeneres, Ricky Gervais and Jon Stewart were funnier in their small bits than Kimmel was during the entire show.
