CEDRIC "THE ENTERTAINER" TO HOST THE FOURTH ANNUAL CRITICS' CHOICE TELEVISION AWARDS, AIRING LIVE ON THE CW NETWORK, THURSDAY, JUNE 19

March 27, 2014 (Burbank, CA) - The CW today announced that actor, comedian and producer Cedric "The Entertainer" will host the live broadcast of the FOURTH ANNUAL CRITICS' CHOICE TELEVISION AWARDS on Thursday, June 19 (8:00-10:00pm ET). The June 19 broadcast from the Beverly Hilton Hotel will mark the first time the CCTAs will be broadcast live on network television.

Charismatic actor/comedian Cedric "The Entertainer" is best known for his many crowd-pleasing performances in such hit films as "Barbershop;" "Be Cool," with John Travolta; the "Madagascar" animated franchise; "Intolerable Cruelty," with George Clooney; "Johnson Family Vacation," the 2004 box office hit in which Cedric was both star and producer, and "The Original Kings of Comedy," MTV'S phenomenally successful documentary feature directed by Spike Lee, to name a few. Cedric will next be seen on the big screen co-starring opposite Marlon Wayans in "A Haunted House 2," and recently wrapped a new feature with Chris Rock, slated for release this summer. Cedric is also the star, co-creator and executive producer of the hit comedy series, "The Soul Man," which is currently celebrating its third season on TV Land. Marking yet another career highlight, on March 20, 2013, Cedric was named the new host of "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire," joining the long-running iconic game show, beginning its 12th season in national syndication.
