“Glee” Cast Should Host Tonys

matthew-morrisonSince the Tony nominations overlooked familiar mainstream faces like Hugh Jackman and Nathan Lane, the telecast on June 13 is going to be seriously lacking in starpower. Which means: even-lower-than-usual ratings. The obvious idea to boost eyeballs would be to have a great host. My suggestion: Matthew Morrison (pictured) and the kids from “Glee.” It would boost ratings and draw younger viewers. Unfortunately, I seriously doubt that Fox, which is “Glee”‘s network, will let Morrison et al host a show on CBS. Neil Patrick Harris, who is in the CBS stable and who did a perfectly fine hosting job last year, will probably get the nod. Meanwhile, the Emmys — which take place almost three months after the Tonys — have already named their host: Jimmy Fallon.
