The “People’s Choice Awards” to Air Live Wednesday, Jan. 9, 2013 on the CBS Television Network



Kaley Cuoco, star of CBS’s THE BIG BANG THEORY, will return to host the PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARDS 2013, LIVE from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, on Wednesday, Jan. 9, 2013 (9:00-11:00 PM, live ET/delayed PT), on the CBS Television Network.


The People’s Choice Awards is the only major awards show where fans determine the categories, nominees and winners across multiple genres of movies, music and television.  Beginning Oct. 23, fans will have the opportunity to narrow down a selection of nominees in each of more than 40 categories.  Voting will take place online at www.Peopleschoice.com/nominees until Friday, 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,” said Kaley Cuoco.


Prior to her role as “Penny” on THE BIG BANG THEORY, winner of the 2010 People’s Choice Award for Favorite TV Comedy, Kaley Cuoco was best known to television audiences for her role as Bridget Hennesy in the series “8 Simple Rules,” winner of the 2003 People’s Choice Award for Favorite New TV Comedy.


This year, Cuoco starred opposite Rob Lowe in the Lifetime movie “Untouchable: The Drew Peterson Story.”  She was also seen in “The Last Ride,” an independent film which tells the story of Hank Williams’s final days, and in 2011, she co-starred in the family comedy “HOP,” with James Marsden and Russell Brand.  Recently, Cuoco wrapped production on “Scribble,” an indie comedy about a group of aspiring writers.

    Great!! Love Kaley Cuoco!

  • CrimTV

    Didn’t she host it last year, and the Teen Choice Awards?!

  • Bart

    Loved her on “8 Simple Rules”, but it was never the same after John Ritter passed away. She holds her own, though, on “The Big Bang Theory” – pretty, sassy and has good comic timing.

    I love Kaley; she did a good job last year. I will most likely tune in again.

    As long as the People’s Choice Awards are ballot stuffing (vote early and vote often), why would anyone take this awards show seriously? In the mid 1970s’ when the show started, a person could vote once and only once. Now a person only has to go to the PCAs web site and vote over and over and over again, as many times as they feel like it.
    The PCA has to be ranked near the bottom of award shows because they allow ballot stuffing.
    Decades ago, the People’s Choice Awards meant something for people who expressed their opinions, their likes and dislikes, as though they were really voting in a way that really mattered.
    Until they return to their previous method of allowing people to vote only once, they are just a waste of time.

    The People’s Choice Awards are broken and they need to be repaired, if they ever want to be something worth winning again.

    She did a great job in last years awards. Down the road an Emmy host in later years? I can see her career getting bigger past Big Bang when it ends. I wonder if the movie world has called her yet? When the day comes BBT ends, I could see the networks calling her for a series of her very own.
