I love Regis, but this choice feels a little "dated." :P I think they should've at least had Kelly co-host given her soap past. Let's just hope people watch period, can't say that I'm all that excited about the nominees.

At least CBS has an actual host this year, thanks to the production company in charge of this event. Every year Les Moonves is in charge of the event, there's no real, marquee host. Just someone to open and close the show. LAZY AND CHEAP!

Given the BETTY WHITE© hype, I'm surprised they didn't try hard to get her. She must've had a high pricetag.

Betty's never hosted anything before, has she (I mean like an awards show)? She seems to know most of her areas of strength; she turned down SNL for years and only the big fan campaign changed her mind.

I don't care for Regis as a game show host and I can't watch him on Live for long periods of time but he will probably be OK as the host for the Emmys. I'm surprised they didn't ask Julie Chen...

That comes when she gets her View ripoff this fall.

She's too dangerous. ;)

I like Regis, I just think the shine is off the whole "Regis!" thing. Someone mentioned Betty White, who is obviously St. Olaf's Woman of the Year. She made an appearance at last year's (or was it the year before?) Emmys and she rarely ever turns down job offers, she'd go to the opening of an envelope. But I think she's too big for the Daytime Emmys right now, and honestly she's probably not that interested in yet another hosting gig, she has poor vision and it makes her nervous having to rely on cue cards and prompters..

You're right. Julie Chen would've been a logical choice for CBS. They could've plugged Big Brother and even had Jeff and Jordan announce a category since they did a stint on B&B.

    • Does Jill still own 25% of Jabot? I haven't kept up in a while and I just saw a tweet that Jill offered a position to Billy at Chancellor which made me question what gave Jill the authority to offer a position within that company?  Did she gain Chancellor stock when she thought she was Kay's daughter and just never gave it back, or is she the proxy for her son Phillip's stock?  I would hope that they didn't write in that she owns part of Fenmore's because Neil died before Jill found out they were related and Lauren was his sole heir (which doesn't suddenly change when a bastard child is found).
    • @soapfan770 Agree, Lillie Belle Barber was the last of the messy matriarchs. One of the most powerful scenes on 1990s Y&R was the Dru/Lillie Belle confrontation where Dru learned she was the result of marital rape.
