Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs, the stars of the CBS comedy 2 Broke Girls, were announced as the hosts of the 40th annual People's Choice Awards set to air Wednesday, Jan. 8 2014.

"Kat and Beth are great additions to our People's Choice family and we are excited to have them host the show," Mark Burnett, the People's Choice Awards executive producer, said at the Paley Center for Media event on Tuesday "Their energy and charisma are a perfect fit for our audience."

Past hosts have included two-time The Big Bang Theory's Kaley Cuoco and Queen Latifah, who hosted for five consecutive years.

This is the first time the show will have two hosts who are both female. The first time the show used a dual-host format was in 1993, where John Ritter (Three's Company) sharing hosting duties with Jane Seymour (Doctor Quinn Medicine Woman). Varied other sets of co-ed hosts shared the honor until 1998 when country singer Reba McEntire and comedian Ray Romano shared the stage. Afterwards, the show stuck to either a single-host or dual-male host format.

The last time a set of co-stars co-hosted the event was in 2005, when Jason Alexander and Malcolm Jamal Warner of Listen Up shared the honor.

The choice of Dennings and Behrs to host the ceremony follows Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's co-hosting gig at the Golden Globe Awards this past January. The two comediennes signed on to host the ceremony again for the next two years.

The awards show will be broadcast live from L.A.'s Nokia Theater on Jan. 8. Voting officially opened Tuesday to select the winners.
