Neil Patrick Harris will host the 61st Emmy Awards.

Triple-threat Neil Patrick Harris will host the Emmy Awards for the second time, CBS announced Wednesday.

Harris has earned four Emmy nominations for his work on the network's comedy, "How I Met Your Mother," and has won two Emmys for hosting the Tony Awards and one for his guest stint on "Glee." He hosted the Emmys for the first time in 2009. With his charm, singing and dancing talent, Harris would be a shoe-in for the Oscars if that show didn't air on rival ABC.

“I couldn't be more honored and excited to be hosting this year's Emmy Awards," Harris said in a statement. “And what perfect timing – I'll just do the exact same script I'm about to use for the Tonys. ‘And the Emmy for Best Revival of a Musical goes to ‘Breaking Bad!’ See, told you it works.”

The first time the actor hosted the show, he received rave reviews. Need a refresher? Take a look:

This year's show will air Sunday, Sept. 22. on CBS.
