Neil Patrick Harris will return for a second time to host the Tony Awards on June 12, CBS announced Tuesday.

The actor, star of the network’s sitcom “How I Met Your Mother,” hosted the show in 2009.

In addition to officially confirming NPH’s role — his name has been rumored for days — the network confirmed several dates for summer programming. Among the highlights:

* “Same Name,” a new reality series that swaps the lives of celebs and everyday people with — you guessed it — the same name, kicks off Sunday, July 24.

* Wayne Brady of “Whose Line is it Anyway?” fame will host the Daytime Emmy Awards on Sunday, June 19.
