NEW YORK (AP) — CBS says Neil Patrick Harris is hosting the Emmys again.

It's the second go-around for the TV, film and stage star. He last did the honors at the "Prime Time Emmy Awards" in 2009.

CBS will air the Emmycast live from Los Angeles on Sept. 22.

But for viewers who just can't wait to see Harris in emcee mode, he'll preside over "The 67th Annual Tony Awards" on CBS on June 9. It's Harris' fourth time hosting that show, which salutes the best of Broadway.

Harris currently stars on the hit CBS sitcom "How I Met Your Mother."
