Meyers previously hosted the 2010 and 2011 ESPY Awards on ESPN, as well as the 2011 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner. This will be Mischer's 12th Primetime Emmys and eighth as executive producer.

"Seth's expertise and ease in front of a live audience during his time at SNL, as well as his comedic brilliance both as a writer and in front of the camera, makes him the perfect choice to host the Emmys," said Paul Telegdy, president of late night and alternative programming at NBC Entertainment. "Plus, with Don's vast experience at putting these type of big productions together, we'll be in great hands."

The 66th annual Emmy Awards will air live on both coasts Aug. 25 at 8 p.m. ET and 5 p.m. PT. from L.A.'s Nokia Theatre. The awards were moved to Monday this year to avoid a conflict with Sunday Night Football. The TV Academy will host the Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards on Aug. 16.
