Mere hours before Fox’s wildly inconsistent dramedy “Glee” wraps up for its second season, word has leaked out that the network is talking to Jane Lynch about hosting this year’s Emmy Awards, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

For those unfamiliar, Lynch stars as evil cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester in the musical series. She took home the trophy during last year’s Emmy Awards for best supporting actress in a comedy.

Broadcast networks — ABC, NBC, CBS, ABC — take turns airing the primetime Emmy Awards :Last time Fox carried the show in 2007, Ryan Seacrest of “American Idol” was the host.

Last year, NBC late night star Jimmy Fallon hosted and got mostly rave reviews.

The Emmy Awards air on Fox on Sunday, Sept. 18.
