Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Andy Samberg hosted the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards tonight live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, CA, and not surprisingly, his opening monologue took aim at some today’s most popular television stars as well as some not so hot celebrities (Jared, Cosby, and so on).
Before the Emmys 2015 live monologue, the SNL alum opened the show with a star-studded pre-recorded video where he’s overwhelmed by questions about which TV shows he’s seen. Turns out, Samberg has a lot of catching up to do (I think we can all relate to this), so to rectify the situation, he holes himself up in a bunker and binge watches EVERY show. When he finally emerges, he breaks out into song about how he completed this major tasks. Sadly, he learns from Castle‘s Nathan Fillion that he forgot actually one show (back to the bunker!).
Samberg’s former SNL cast mate and current fellow FOX TV star Will Forte (Last Man on Earth) shows up in the video for an homage to Les Miserables, and the host ends the video with a song and dance number.
