    Let’s hope the writers from 2 Broke Girls weren’t also hired.

  • rgxx

    Basically just watch the first 20 or 30 minutes – see who is going to be on and you know who won…the winners are informed in advanced so they will be there for this award show. They need to be because the public chose them and they don’t want to disappoint the viewers who chose them – so they make sure they are informed and know to come.

  • anne

    Too bad they couldn’t find someone else to emcee rather than these girls from a vulgar comedy show. The Peoples’ Choice they ain’t.

  • CrimTV

    @anne

    Even though 2 Broke Girls won favourite new TV comedy at the PCAs a couple of years back.

  • anne

    @crimTV–no accounting for taste, evidently.
