Classic Intro to the Emmys

Wasn't the opening introduction to the 58th Annual Emmy Awards hysterical tonight?

Seeing Host Conan O'Brien deadpan his way on the plane crash to the island in "Lost", jumping down the hatch to land on on Dwight's desk in "The Office", dealing with Chloe & Jack on "24", getting a medical exam from a cranky Dr. House, winding up in the closet with Tom Cruise via "South Park" and finally ending up on "NBC Dateline's To Catch A Predator" (conebone69) had me laughing in tears and glued to the set all night!

The musical number was great as well: "We got trouble, right here at NBC, with a capital T and that rhymes with G, as in 'Gee, we're screwed!'"

I really liked the suspense involving Bob Newhart to have me stay the full three hours. This will go down as one of the classic intros to an Awards show - simply brilliant writing!

Here's the full list of winners

My investment in TIVO finally paid off. I'm sure YouTube or iTunes will have this clip up soon -
