The actor credits so many different genres of programming and says it "that makes for a better viewing experience of television than ever, and I'm happy to be the guy in charge of honoring that."
Harris, who has plenty of experience hosting awards shows including the Emmys and the Tonys, revealed that he wants to stay true to who he is when acting as the emcee.
"I want to do my own thing and hope people respond to it," the actor said. "I think the key is to try and be nice. I'm not so wild a fan of comedy at people's expense."
