SEASON:

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Wildly uneven jokes and watered-down patter between Colin Jost and Michael Che make the 70th Annual Emmy Awards feel like a particularly overlong episode of SNL.

Devoid of charisma and struggling to get the audience on their side, they plodded on, looking like two dads forced to emcee a school assembly where they didn't particularly want to be there, but someone had prevailed upon them to help out.

There was a lot of talk about how the nominations were very diverse, but we only say a handful of non-white winners.

Produced by Lorne Michaels and hosted by his Weekend Update correspondents and head writers Colin Jost and Michael Che, the Emmys telecast was as paralyzed as the hosts' matching interlocked grips.

These Emmys were briskly paced and deeply tepid. Che and Jost, the least famous hosts in almost a decade, were almost willfully unmemorable.

Once Fred Armisen and Maya Rudolph showed up to play comically unprepared Emmy experts, it was clear the night was doubling as an episode of "Saturday Night Live" -- a not-great episode at that.
