Nick Offerman, “lover of meats,” will host this year’s 27th Annual Television Critics Association Awards in Los Angeles on Aug. 6, TCA announced today (in a tongue-in-cheek press release).
“I am mighty flattered to be invited to speak in front of a crowd like this,” the Parks and Recreation actor said in a statement. “The last time I was awarded such a privilege was in front of the Eagle Scouts disciplinary board, concerning what came to be known as ‘The Astonishing Cowsh*! Incident of 1987’ in Grundy County, Illinois. I presume this engagment will end in a friendlier fashion for all concerned.”
The award show, held annually in conjunction with the summer press tour, recognizes the best in television programming.
