NBC's entertainment president Paul Telegdy said: "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 on SNL and Late Night, makes him the perfect choice to host the Emmys."
And Television Academy chairman and CEO Bruce Rosenblum added: "Seth is such a talented performer and writer, and we know he will bring something unique to hosting the Primetime Emmy Awards."
It was also revealed that Don Mischer will work as executive producer when the Emmys are broadcast on 25 August.
