Harris, star of CBS’ “How I Met Your Mother,” hosted last year to huge acclaim, and he said he thrilled to be back.
“It’ll be more impressive than ever – if my math is correct, it will be 267 times bigger than last year,” Harris said in a statement. "Oh wait. No. That can't ... hold on ... carry the one ... I'm awful at math. But rest assured, the show will rock."
The show, which will air on CBS, is put on by the Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing, both of which lauded Harris for "his creativity and passion for Broadway."
Harris has won three Emmys, two for his work on the Tonys and one for his guest appearance on Fox’s “Glee.”
