A gifted host on a TV awards show will usually keep things running at a good pace. The host will know how to cut the speeches of celebrities short, not to mention will know how to go with the flow and cut sketches when a broadcast is running long. It helps when a TV host is not only affable, but amusing as well. During the 68th Annual Emmy Awards, Jimmy Kimmel brought his a-game, taking not only lead actors but even producers to task in a way that was both amusing and a little edgier than usual. Still, Jimmy Kimmel wasn't the only person who threw some unexpected laughs at us during tonight's broadcast. You can catch our favorite jokes, below.

Jimmy Kimmel Roasts Mark Burnett

Jimmy Kimmel took a few pretty hard shots during his monologue this year. No one was roasted harder than Mark Burnett, the famous TV producer who is responsible for several big shows like Shark Tank. Jimmy Kimmel wasn't giving him flack for the ABC reality series; instead, he was giving him flack for bringing Donald Trump to television when he created The Apprentice and its follow-up The Celebrity Apprentice. In fact, Kimmel took the joke pretty far, noting that we have Mark Burnett to thank for where we are today with the election and so forth.

Many have asked who is to blame for the Donald Trump phenomenon, and I'll tell you who because he's sitting right there. That's right that guy, Mark Burnett, the man who brought us Celebrity Apprentice. Thanks to Mark Burnett, we don't have to watch reality shows anymore because we're living one.

It went on for a minute or so, including one comment about a plan to put Miley Cyrus on the Supreme court and booting Mark Burnett over that wall Donald Trump plans to build should he win the election.
