Neil Patrick Harris did such a good job hosting the Tony Awards last month, CBS has signed up the How I Met Your Mother star to emcee the prime-time Emmys on Sept. 20.

“After having had such a hoot hosting the Tonys, I was thrilled to get the call about the prime-time Emmys,” said NPH, adding that he looks forward to “adding my own voice” to the ceremony: “But which voice to choose? I’m torn between gangsta, foppish Brit, and robot. Really proud of my robot. We’ll see what happens on the night.”

Not only will he host, but he’ll serve as producer for the CBS broadcast, which aires live from the Nokia Theatre in L.A.
