Also, she is an Emmy Award winner for her role as host of “Hollywood Game Night.” Her additional memorable television roles include “Party Down,” “The L Word,” “Desperate Housewives,” and, on the Network, “The New Adventures of Old Christine,” for which she was nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series, CRIMINAL MINDS and “Two and a Half Men.” Lynch also served as host of “The 63rd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards.”
