Former "Saturday Night Live" star and current host of "Late Night" Seth Meyers has been tapped to host this year's Emmy Awards, which will be produced by 15-time Emmy winner Don Mischer.
While it's not a huge surprise Meyers was chosen — the ceremony is airing on his network, NBC, on Aug. 25 — it's still a very high-profile role for someone who just recently got his own show. Meyers replaced Jimmy Fallon as host of "Late Night" (who, in turn, replaced Jay Leno on "The Tonight Show") just two months ago, and now he's landed one of the most visible gigs there is.
Yahoo TV got the chance to ask Meyers a few quick questions about hosting over email (he's a little busy), and even though the news is probably still sinking in for him, his answers prove that he's always got something witty to say.
'Black Box' Star Kelly Reilly Previews Her New Medical Series About a Bipolar Doctor and the Brain Cases She TreatsKelly Woo at Yahoo TV8 hrs ago
The brain is the biggest mystery of all time — one that, despite modern medicine and technological advancements, humans have yet to solve.
The mysterious brain is at the heart of ABC's new medical drama, "Black Box." But it's not just patients who come in with neurological disorders — the brilliant doctor, Catherine Black, is bipolar herself.
As star Kelly Reilly told Yahoo TV, "There's nothing wrong with having bipolar [disorder], and there's nothing wrong with being a doctor while she's bipolar , as long as she's dedicated to her health and well-being." The interesting twist is that in the show, Catherine has decided to stop taking her medication.
Watch a sneak peek:
Learn more from Reilly about the fascinating cases in the show, Catherine's relationship to her psychiatrist (played by Vanessa Redgrave), and why the doctor can't stop dancing.
'The Blacklist' Star Megan Boone on 'The Kingmaker,' a Darker Path for Liz, and Working With James SpaderMaggie Furlong at Yahoo TV8 hrs ago
"The Blacklist" (Mondays at 10 p.m. on NBC) is one of the best, most intense freshman dramas of the season, and the stakes have never been higher. After things finally came to blows between Agent Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone) and her husband Tom (Ryan Eggold) — who, she discovered, only met and married her as part of an undercover assignment — the second most mysterious man in her life had a few parting words that made Liz and all the viewers question everything. "I am not here to hurt you, Liz. My job was never to hurt you. I'm one of the good guys," Tom said. "Reddington… he's not what you think."

From tonight 's "Parks and Recreation " finale to an upcoming edition of "Nashville, " Michelle Obama seems to be the go-to TV guest star these days. But why?
The real question is, who's really benefiting here, especially with May sweeps nearly upon us? Is it the networks? The White House?
Is it us?
It's unclear how Obama will amuse us on "Parks and Rec," though she continues a guest-starring tradition pioneered by John McCain and Joe Biden. The giggles seem more likely to fly over on "Nashville," where Obama and Kellie Pickler will band together with Connie Britton to save the teen community center throw a charity concert for Fort Campbell.

Tony Hale has been busy! We adore him as Gary on HBO's "Veep" (Sundays at 10:30 p.m.), and while we may not be getting more "Arrested Development" on Netflix anytime soon, we can get a taste of someone very Buster Bluth-esque on TV next week.
Hale is guest starring on NBC's "About a Boy" (Tuesday, April 29 at 9 p.m.) as Hugh Womple, Marcus's father who has been off researching penguins in Antarctica. (Remember Buster's little run-in with the seal that left him without a hand?)
When Hugh pops into town to see Marcus (Benjamin Stockham), Fiona (Minnie Driver) has a hard time resisting his very unique, very confident, oddly Buster Bluth-like charms.

We h ave to give it to Tony: He's very smart. He should've been on the Brains tribe!
The guy not only creates a spy shack out of some leaves and branches, but he deduces where the special hidden idol is — and finds it!
The special idol gives immunity, but unlike other ones, it can be used after the votes are read. That's a very powerful tool in this game, maybe too powerful.
In any case, Tony doesn't have to use it because Jefra is an idiot. Sweet and likeable, but nonetheless, an idiot.
After feasting on barbecue with Spencer, Tasha, and Jeremiah, and then reading a letter from her mom, Jefra has the chance to better her fortunes in the game. She shakes hands with them to go to the final four, but instead, goes back to her alliance of five (which she's clearly at the bottom of).
So, because she's too scared to jump ship, Spencer has to use his hidden idol and Jeremiah goes home.

He's been in exile for years, hunted by the government of the very country he saved from so many terrorist plots. But as these 20 new Yahoo TV exclusive photos hint, when real American hero Jack Bauer does finally resurface, he is, of course, trying to save the world yet again.
Bauer (Emmy and Golden Globe winner Kiefer Sutherland) is looking uber-menacing in the "24: Live Another Day" pic above, and that's because… nah, that would be too spoilery to reveal, especially since viewers have been waiting four years for the series' return to primetime. Suffice it to say that Jack is facing off with a foe, and while it may look like his adversary has gotten the better of him, that's just the way Jack wants it to look.
More details from "24: Live Another Day," the 12-hour revival that premieres on Fox with back-to-back episodes on May 5:

O Captain McSteamy! My Captain McSteamy! Your fearful trip is far from done... unfortunately for "Grey's Anatomy" alum Eric Dane and the rest of the crew of TNT's "The Last Ship."
However, their misfortune spells a summer of small-screen thrills for fans of the William Brinkley novel that inspired the series... and just about anyone who likes hot boys in uniform, big guns, even bigger boats, and world-ending biological events.
On Friday, a new extended trailer for "The Last Ship" (debuting June 22) will hit select movie theaters. But why wait when you can see alums of "Grey’s," "Firefly," "Alphas," "24," and "Nip/Tuck" trying to save the human race today on Yahoo TV exclusively?

"American Idol" contestant Dexter Roberts may have been eliminated from the competition before making it to the Top 6, but he's not worried. If singing doesn't work out, he could have a promising career in the ballroom.
The Alabama native revealed to Yahoo TV that he's secretly a skilled swing dancer. Need proof? He took me for a spin around the Yahoo office and showed off his smooth moves, dipping, twisting, and turning me around. Naturally, we captured it all on video.
While Roberts didn't express any interest in joining "Dancing With the Stars," the 22-year-old performer did say he wouldn't mind having his own hunting show or making a guest appearance on "Duck Dynasty."
"I want to have my own hunting show one day. I can hunt everything. Everything beware," Roberts joked. "I would love to go on 'Duck Dynasty.' That would be awesome. I am a big duck hunter. I train labs and I am just a big outdoorsman. I want to have a tour all the way until hunting season starts, then I want to have my hunting show, then after hunting is over, I'll go back to my tour."

Meg Ryan is the new Bob Saget! That's a line no one ever thought they'd ever hear, but it's the truth: Ryan has been tapped to voice the future mother in CBS's "How I Met Your Mother" reimagining "How I Met Your Dad."
Just as Saget voiced "Future Ted" (who was played by Josh Radnor in the present day on the show) to tell his kids the sweet (and ultimately heartbreaking and terrible, depending on your taste) story of meeting their mother, now Ryan will voice "Future Sally," who is being played in present day by Greta Gerwig.
