A Strong Opening:
"Justin Timberlake is not coming," Samberg said right off the bat, likely letting millions of people down but also acknowleding the popularity of his good friend and frequent collaborator.
A Dirty Impression:
Just Google "Girls" and "Allison Williams" and "ass eating" if you don't get this joke. Maybe don't do so in front of your boss.
On Shows That Went Off the Air This Year:
"And we also said goodbye to True Detective even though it’s still on the air." ZING! (Also: true!)
On the Futuristic Set:
"Not totally sure whether to host the show or get the Sports Almanac back from Biff." That's a Back to the Future joke, kids.
Oh, He Went There!
"I have to say, I'm so honored to join the proud ranks of past Emmy hosts. Incredible, legendary people like Robert Blake and Bill Cosby . . . oh no, I gotta get outta here." We have nothing to add to this.
What a Hamm
We'll see Jon Hamm again, Samberg assured us, prefacing this joke with a reference to Better Call Saul: "I'm sure Jon will be nominated for the upcoming prequel, Dick Whitman, Horny Hobo."
