Seth Meyers Plays It Straight As Emmys Host

Seth Meyers Plays It Straight As Emmys Host
(Undated) -- Seth Meyers took his "Late Night" wit to the Emmys on Monday night. The comedian hosted the awards show at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. He stayed within the lines, apart from some monologue jokes poking fun at the Academy's decision to hold the show on a Monday. Seth added that the Monday show was also because of a conflict with MTV Video Music Awards. He pointed out the irony in MTV giving out awards for music videos, while on network TV, they are "holding an awards show and giving all the trophies to cable and Netflix."
