Assuming it's not cancelled due to any actor's strike!

I think it's great! I loved the 3 years he hosted the Tonys!

Whilst I appreciate the sentiment, he does look damn fine in a tux as well!

Ahhhh. Much better on the eyes than Billy Crystal or Whoopi! I might even watch the entire broadcast through this time. I'd rather have a drool worthy host than a funny one.

Hugh has a great sense of humour. I saw him live on Broadway when he was doing "The Boy From Oz".

At least he looks good, though not sure if I'd sit through the night to watch it though, it'll have to be the edited highlights for me!

Boo! Don't like him. I need humor since the dang show drags on for so long. I miss the Billy Crystal days.
