Seth Meyers Teases LeBron, Reggie, Tiger at ESPY Awards (VIDEO)

Seth Meyers Teases Lebron, Reggie, Tiger on 'ESPY Awards'As host of the 'ESPY Awards' (Wed., 9PM ET on ESPN), Seth Meyers had a lot of material to work with, gleaning jokes both from the sports world and the athletes' private lives.

"This is where sports and entertainment come together," said Meyers. "It's like a Kardashian sister's bedroom." The camera cut to Reggie Bush, Kim Kardashian's on-again, off-again boyfriend, who smiled sheepishly.

Meyers called LeBron James' TV special announcing his move to the Miami Heat "a super boring hour of television" -- pretty brave considering ESPN televised said hour.

He commended James on the deal, but turned even that into a (Tiger Woods) joke you'll find in the clip.

Also on the video: footage from all the Best Play and Best Team nominees, and speeches from the respective awards' surprising winners.

Is Justin Timberlake the right star to host the Oscars?

by Allison Waldman, posted Aug 3rd 2008 3:05PM
Justin GlobesHe's no Johnny Carson or Bob Hope or Billy Crystal, but pop star and former boy band fave Justin Timberlake could be the next star to host the Academy Awards. The Oscars are still months away, but the Academy is already contemplating a way to make the show more Nielsen worthy.

Last February's show, hosted by The Daily Show's Jon Stewart (he also hosted in 2006), celebrated the 80th anniversary of the Oscars but was a ratings dud. It was the worst Oscars ever, in terms of Nielsen ratings, even though it had a 21.9 rating and 33 share.

Many people blame those dismal numbers on a disinterest among viewers in the films that were in contention last year, including heavy dramas No Country for Old Men, There Will Be Blood, Michael Clayton, which seemed to have little appeal to mass audiences.
