Reality takes the Emmy's

The Emmy Awards celebrated it's 60th birthday last night (as old as Betty White's TV career we learned) with the introduction of a new category - outstanding reality host.

Proving just how powerful and influential reality television has become, the five emcees nominated in the category - Ryan Seacrest, Jeff Probst, Heidi Klum, Howie Mendel and Tom Bergeron - all took a crack at hosting the Emmy's.

Now one would think with numerous TV and radio deals, and iconic frost-tipped hair, Ryan Seacrest was a shoe-in for the award. But after a long, drawn out imitation of reality shows' elimination rounds, and a commercial break, Jeff Probst, host of of Survivor, actually took home the golden trophy.

Another disappointment was Christina Applegate's loss in the outstanding actress in a comedy category. After a rough year fighting breast cancer and a double mastectomy, I was really hoping Applegate, star of Samantha Who?, would have won the prize. Instead, she was beat out by Tina Fey of 30 Rock (which was also winner of best comedy series).

And whether it was due to the prolonged writer's strike last season or because I am unfamiliar with many of the programs and actors who won, the awards show was bland. The only rememberable moment was when Josh Grobin, looking absolutely adorable, sang a montage of TV theme songs - everything from crooning The Love Boat to rapping The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
