How can the Emmy’s make it up to us after last year’s lame five-host setup? Get Neil Patrick Harris on board to lead the show the next time, that’s how. Word is, Harris is currently in the process of making a deal with CBS to host the 2009 Emmy Awards.

According to Variety, inside sources say that while the deal isn’t completed just yet, “all sides” are working to get Harris on board as the frontman for this year’s Emmys. Harris not only hosted the recent Tony Awards ceremony but also hosted last year’s Creative Arts Emmy’s, so it’s not all that difficult picturing him taking the lead at the Emmy’s this year. Last season, the nominees for best Reality Shot Host took turns hosting the event and I’m sure most would agree that it was corny and poorly executed. Part of me might just be saying that because Cat Deeley (So You Think You Can Dance) got stiffed in the nominations and might have livened up the panel of hosts had she been there but I digress.

As far as Harris hosting, I didn’t catch the Tony’s this year but I heard good things and I did see the nomination announcements for the Emmy’s last year and Harris, who was working alongside Kristen Chenoweth as they announced the nominees was very amusing and quick to improve. Come to think of it, so was Chenoweth so if the Emmy’s are looking for a co-host this year, hopefully CBS will be in talks with the adorable blonde. If they can’t bring her on to host, maybe they could get her up on stage to perform a duet with Harris.
