After his spectacular opening at the Tonys, everyone was expecting something big from Emmys host Neil Patrick Harris. Instead his opening was a big let down, with a lame bit featuring arguing former hosts and a House of Cards parody from Kevin Spacey. Luckily, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey swept in at the end to save the bit just by being themselves. 

Watch the opening here: 

Twitter wasn't really pleased with Harris' performance, even comparing the schtick to Seth MacFarlane's controversial turn at the Oscars

Meanwhile, others just wondered where the singing and dancing was.
