Jimmy Kimmel to Host 2012 Emmy Awards
Jimmy Kimmel is going from late night to primetime. For one night only, at least.
The comedian will host the 2012 Emmy Awards, ABC announced today, joking in a statement he hopes "to do for the Emmys this year what Eddie Murphy did for the Oscars,” referring to Murphy’s extremely short tenure as host of this year’s Academy Awards.
