Who's the host and what does he do?

Emergency etiquette question: A family member is the father of the groom for a wedding this weekend. He and the groom's mother are divorced. He has behaved very well towards her, but she tries to get between him and his grown children. He was told today that she has arranged for a college friend of the groom to be the "emcee" for the rehearsal dinner tomorrow night. The invitations for this dinner were issued in both parents's names. The groom is oblivious to this issue and his father wants him to remain so. What should the father do? He was under the impression that HE was the host and would be acting as such but he has been essentially excluded from the planning process for this dinner. Any advice, experiences that are similar, clarification of the role of the father or of an "emcee" for a rehearsal dinner would be very helpful.
