Annual TV Land PRIME Original Special Taping Saturday, April 17 At 4:00 p.m. On Sony's Historic Stage 15 In Culver City, CA And Will Air On April 25 At 9:00 p.m. ET/PT

March 29, 2010, Los Angeles, CA - TV Land announced today that Golden Globe(R) Award-winner and Emmy(R)-nominated actor and comedian, Tim Allen has been tapped to host the "8th Annual TV Land Awards" that are scheduled to tape on Saturday, April 17 on the historic Stage 15 on the Sony Lot in Culver City. The show premieres on Sunday, April 25 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. Allen was previously honored last year, when his award-winning show, "Home Improvement" was given the Fan Favorite Award.

"Tim Allen is a versatile and hilarious performer who fits perfectly into the plans for this year's TV Land Awards," stated Larry W. Jones, president, TV Land. "We are thrilled to have him as our host this year."

Tim Allen will next be heard reprising his role as Buzz Lightyear in the Disney/Pixar animated film "Toy Story 3" scheduled for release on June 18, 2010. Allen was last seen on screen in his feature film directorial debut, the independent comedy "Crazy on the Outside" in which he starred opposite Ray Liotta and Sigourney Weaver. The film is scheduled to be released on DVD in April 2010. Allen honed his talents as a stand-up comic throughout the eighties, providing the perfect lead-in to his very successful television series "Home Improvement" which ran for eight seasons on ABC. He made his film debut in 1994 in Disney's "The Santa Clause."

In addition to starring in that film's two highly profitable sequels, Allen has starred in box office hits such as "Wild Hogs," "Galaxy Quest," "Toy Story" 1 & 2 and "The Shaggy Dog" as well as David Mamet's drama "Redbelt," the dark comedy "Who is Cletis Tout" and Barry Sonnenfeld's "Big Trouble," to name a few. Allen is also an author having penned two books, the New York Times Bestseller Don't Stand Too Close to a Naked Man and its bestselling follow up, I'm Not Really Here.

Honorees previously announced include the entire cast of "Everybody Loves Raymond" who will reunite for this year's TV Land Awards for the first time since the death of fellow cast member Peter Boyle to receive the Impact Award. This year's Future Classic Award will be bestowed upon Fox's runaway hit, "Glee." Previous Future Classic recipients include "Desperate Housewives" and "Arrested Development." Mel Brooks ("Blazing Saddles") and Carl Reiner ("The Dick Van Dyke Show" and "Ocean's Eleven") -- the Renaissance Men of Comedy who started out on "Your Show of Shows" -- will each receive the Legend Award. This marks the first time that this award will be given to two recipients. Stars of the 1970s TV phenomenon "Charlie's Angels" will be on hand to receive the Pop Culture Award and to pay tribute to their cast member Farrah Fawcett, who passed away from cancer in June 2009.

Now in its eighth year, the "TV Land Awards" celebrates classic and contemporary luminaries of television, music and movies. The ninety-minute telecast will feature exhilarating musical performances and will reunite some of the most iconic celebrity TV casts.

Previous honorees include Mike Myers, Garry Marshall, the cast of "Desperate Housewives" and the hilarious sitcoms "Cheers," "The Dick Van Dyke Show" and "M*A*S*H*." Past presenters include Academy Award(R)-winner Halle Berry, Justin Timberlake, Ray Romano, Steve Carell, Billy Crystal, Sharon Stone, Robin Williams and Academy Award(R)-nominee Robert Downey, Jr. to name a few. Past musical performers include Diana Ross, Willie Nelson and Lionel Ritchie.

Michael Levitt ("Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D List," "Billboard Music Awards," "Scream Awards") is executive producer; Emmy Award(R)-winning Jeff Margolis is director ("Academy Awards(R)," "American Music Awards," "Screen Actors Guild Awards"); Greg Sills serves as supervising producer ("VH1 Rock Honors," "The Teen Choice Awards," "Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards") and TV Land's Larry W. Jones and Sal Maniaci are executive producers.
