Welcome to TWoP's live-blogging of the 61st Annual Primetime Emmy Awards! Tonight, Neil Patrick Harris is our host, and we're quivering in anticipation for some kind of Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog reunion and performance.
8:00 -- Television gets a special tribute from a 1950s voiceover announcer, who mocks what TV has brought us -- Aretha Franklin's hat, ABC's Wipeout -- then scopes out the red carpet before introducing NPH. Musical number! In a white tux jacket, NPH tells us to put down the remote and watch the show. We get a joke about Paula Abdul, and a joke about how Christina Hendricks would turn a gay man straight, if only Jon Hamm didn't exist. Pretty funny stuff, and an impressive rattling off of nearly every nominated network. On to the show!
