Andy Samberg Rolls Out Emmys Red Carpet, Promises Silly Show.

LOS ANGELES, CA – SEPTEMBER 16: (L-R) Executive producer Don Mischer, host Andy Samberg, and Television Academy Chairman/CEO Bruce Rosenblum attend the 67th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards Press Preview Day Red Carpet Rollout & Governors Ball Reveal at the Microsoft Theater on September 16, 2015 in Los Angeles, California. (Photo by Frederick M. After ceremoniously unravelling the red carpet outside the Microsoft Theatre, the Brooklyn Nine-Nine star said he’s angling to inject some goofiness into Sunday’s celebration with assistance from the jokesters behind the IFC show and podcast Comedy Bang!As of Monday (Sept. 14), Andy Samberg, host of the “67th Emmy Awards,” had not prepared a statement to quell the riot should Jon Hamm not win for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for “Mad Men.” The ceremony airs at 7 p.m. Sunday (Sept. 20) on WVUE, and pitchforks and torches will be at the ready around 9:45 p.m. in case Hamm, 16 times an Emmy nominee in multiple categories but never a winner, departs Emmyless for Don Draper. “It’s a strong category, but I agree, it will be wonderful” if Hamm wins, Samberg said during a conference call with TV reporters. “Jon Hamm is a lovely guy, and we’re friends, so I definitely would be happy for him if he won.” “I love a lot of the shows,” said Samberg, whose Fox sitcom, “Brooklyn Nine-nine” returns for a new season at 7:30 p.m. — This year’s Emmy Awards may be a nail-biter in a whole new way, since the show is directly preceded by two NFL games with the potential for overtime.

Before House of Cards faces off against Game of Thrones and Jon Hamm and Amy Poehler each get one more shot for their first win, test your knowledge in all things Emmy in EW’s trivia quiz, ahead. You don’t want it to be too silly or too meta to the point where it feels like we’re not taking the show seriously.” The first-time Emmys host said he’ll also rely on nominated sketch comedy pals in the crowd, such as Amy Schumer, Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele, Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, to keep the three-hour extravaganza moving along. “I know it’ll be a funny show,” said the Saturday Night Live alum. “We have really funny presenters this year. The `Saturday Night Live` alumni said that he was comfortable with the material of the show and confirmed that there would be some celebrity cameos too, but did not give away any names.

But I’ve seen at least some of everything, and it’s a wonderfully varied and cool group of shows. “Certainly in the comedy category, I watch almost everything and love it. ‘(Inside Amy) Schumer,’ ‘Key & Peele,’ ‘SNL,’ ‘Portlandia.’ ‘Drunk History’ is great. Generally I never bring up ‘D–k in a Box,'” he said, dropping the hit Lonely Island tune and SNL skit. “But everyone always asks me if I’m going to do it again. That (Outstanding Variety) Sketch (Series) category being in the live show is very exciting for me, just because I have such a strong connection to it. He admits with so many buzzed-about shows, it’s tough to see everything. “There’s some people who only watch this kind of show, and other people watch this kind of show,” he says. “So we’re trying to figure out a way to make bigger jokes that you don’t necessarily have to have seen every show to understand, but you know the headlines of the big stories on TV this year.”

I asked Samberg if he’s studying any favorite host turns – or notable stiffs — to prep for Sunday. “There’s certainly a million hosts that I’ve admired,” he said. “I thought my buddy Seth Meyers did a really great job last year. You want to get your best stuff in and out and try and keep the show moving, because half of the audience sitting in there are people who just didn’t win an award.” Got a TV question?
