'Big Bang Theory's' Kaley Cuoco to Host People's Choice Awards for Second Time
Kaley Cuoco is CBS' go-to woman of the people.
The Big Bang Theory star has been tapped to host the People's Choice Awards for the second year in a row.
The annual awards show is the only one of its kind where fans determine everything -- the categories, nominees and winners -- honoring music, film and television.
Nominees will begin to be whittled down from a wide selection in more than 40 categories beginning Oct. 23 via www.PeoplesChoice.com/nominees through Nov. 2.
"It’s an honor to return as host of the 2013 People's Choice Awards and kick off awards season with one of the most fun events of the year," Cuoco said of the awards show that will be executive produced by Mark Burnett.
The People's Choice Awards will air live Wednesday, Jan. 9 on CBS. The Big Bang Theory airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on CBS.
