September 23, 2013 07:09:59 GMT

Neil Patrick Harris did not deliver a big opening number to kick off the 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards but it didn't make his monologue less interesting. After throwing jokes about watching "American Horror Story: Asylum" on his soft lens and that Paula Deen called "Orange Is the New Black" "Orange Is the New African American", his speech was cut by last year's Emmy host Jimmy Kimmel who wanted to share some advice to Harris.

Kimmel told Harris to enjoy every second on the show because he might not be asked to host again next year. Jane Lynch, who hosted a prior Emmy Awards, then appeared to complain that she wasn't asked back because she's a woman. Harris dismissed her opinion, saying she was barely recognized as a woman when hosting the 2011 Emmys.
