Best: The Jubiliant Opening

Andy Samberg kicked off his Emmys hosting debut with an uproarious musical number about the pleasures — and difficulty — of binge-watching in the era of "Peak TV." The bit, which featured cameos from Veep's Timothy Simons, Scandal star Kerry Washington, Jon Hamm, and Castle star Nathan Fillion, began with Samberg locking himself in an underground bunker (which looks suspiciously like the one from Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) to catch up on all the shows he’s missed. The bit then somehow morphed into a Les Miserables-inspired sing-off with Samberg's former Saturday Night Live co-star Will Forte, before ending with the host listing every show he could think of, including at least a dozen different ones with "wives" in the name. It was goofy and absurdist in the manner of his Lonely Island/SNL digital shorts yet still totally accessible — and nicely set the tone for the rest of the evening. AP
