New York, NY, May 7, 2007 � The preeminent night of the year for men will take place when comedian/actor Tracy Morgan hosts Spike TV's first annual "GUYS CHOICE." Spike TV is giving the biggest shout-outs in television history to the things guys love most and is relying on its millions of viewers to decide who to bow down to from the worlds of sports, music, film, television and the internet. The show is scheduled to tape on June 9 at CBS Radford in Los Angeles. Spike TV's "GUYS CHOICE" premieres Wednesday, June 13 at 10:00 PM, ET/PT.

It's guys night out this June with this non-traditional awards show that promises to be a one-of-a-kind raucous and manly two-hour television spectacular. This star-studded event will feature everything guys want including comedy, the hottest women in the world, the best in music, sports and so much more. Also, for the first time in awards show history, Spike TV will narrow the field for all awards to only two nominees, so it can be settled like men: �mano a mano.'

In addition to honoring the coolest guys and the most awe-inspiring women from the past year, GUYS CHOICE will also feature unforgettable tributes to legendary entertainers, rockers and most viral videos, as well as edgy stand-up comedy and house-shaking musical performances.

Tracy Morgan has received critical acclaim for playing the wild and unpredictable movie star Tracy Jordan on NBC's "30 Rock." As a standup comic who headlined across the country, TV audiences first met Morgan in his role as "Hustleman" on the hit comedy series "Martin." Morgan next joined "Saturday Night Live" in 1996 where he appeared for seven seasons and created such memorable characters as "Astronaut Jones" and "Brian Fellows." Morgan's feature-film credits include "The Longest Yard," "Little Man," "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" and "Head of State."
