The 61st Primetime Emmy Awards (aka: The Emmys) were on last night on CBS, hosted by Neil Patrick Harris, formerly of Doogie Howser M.D., and currently of How I Met Your Mother. During the show, "NPH" appeared as "Dr. Horrible" (not a reference to Doogie, but to a blogger he portrays on a web show), and made fun of online video and the notion that it could ever replace television.

Doogie takes stabs at common limitations of online video, such as size and buffering. Watch the clip below.

Meanwhile, the Emmys have their own YouTube channel, where users can watch over 109 Emmy-related videos. In addition, videos can be found at
