Santa Monica, CA, January 23, 2006 – TV Land today announced that Emmy Award-winning actress and star of NBC’s Will & Grace will serve as host at the fourth annual TV Land Awards: A Celebration of Classic TV, which will tape on Sunday, March 19, 2006 at the Barker Hanger in Santa Monica, CA before premiering on TV Land on Wednesday, March 22 at 9PM (ET/PT). The announcement was made today by Larry W. Jones, President, TV Land and Nick at Nite.

The TV Land Awards is the network’s fourth annual salute to Classic TV stars, shows and the individuals whose work has endured the test of time. Several awards will be bestowed upon some of television’s legendary series’ and stars, which the network will announce in the coming weeks. Throughout the two-hour telecast, TV Land will feature dozens of celebrated past and present TV performers as well as musical tributes, show parodies and reunions of some of the most iconic casts from televisions’ most beloved shows.

“TV Land is thrilled to have Megan Mullally bring her many talents to our awards show,” states Larry W. Jones. “Megan’s proven talents have made her a success on television, on Broadway and in concert halls and her passion for Classic TV are sure to resonate with fans of the TV Land Awards.”
