Bryant Gumbel |1997

Remember when Bryant Gumbel hosted the Primetime Emmy Awards? We don't either. Warning alarms should have sounded when the sportscaster and long-time co-host of NBC's "Today" show admitted to his lack of comedy experience. Successful in all things serious, Gumbel didn't fair as well during the dignified but forgettable awards night.
