LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Kaley Cuoco of "The Big Bang Theory" will host next year's People's Choice Awards next year, it was announced Thursday.

Cuoco, who plays Penny on the hit CBS show, will replace Queen Latifah. She also hosted the Teen Choice Awards earlier this year.

"She's been making people laugh on top-rated comedy series for the last decade, first with '8 Simple Rules' and now with 'The Big Bang Theory,' Thursday's number-one show," executive producer Mark Burnett said. "I'm looking forward to working with her on a fun-filled, comedy-packed show."

The People's Choice Awards will be held Jan. 11 at Nokia Theater in downtown Los Angeles.
