Nick Offerman to Host TCA Awards

by at . Comments

Nick Offerman of Parks and Recreation fame will host this year’s 27th Annual Television Critics Association Awards August 6, the group announced today.

The award show, held annually in conjunction with the summer press tour, recognizes the best in TV programming. They certainly landed a quality MC.

“I am mighty flattered to be invited to speak in front of a crowd like this,” the actor who plays Pawnee P&R shot-caller Ron Swanson 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 will end in friendlier fashion for all concerned.”

We have no idea what that means, which is probably the point, and makes it all the more awesome. Speaking of awesome, here's TVF's recent interview with Nick:
