Emmy Awards Host
It's official: Ryan Seacrest is the host of everything.

The American Idol emcee was recently put in charge of the Super Bowl festivities in February.

Now, he's tapped to host the 59th Primetime Emmy Awards.

"Ryan Seacrest appeals to a broad audience, including the highly desirable young adult demographic, so he should serve as a magnet for attracting a diverse array of viewers to our Emmy telecast," said Dick Askin, chairman and chief executive officer of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.
