‘So You Think You Can Dance’ host Cat Deeley will emcee the first presentation of the Critics’ Choice Television Awards, which will be doled out at the Beverly Hills Hotel on June 20.

The inaugural ceremony will be streamed live at and rebroadcast in edited format by ReelzChannel cable network many times starting June 22. will also provide celebrity interviews, behind-the-scenes reports and opportunities for fans to interact with stars on its ‘fan cam’ stream.


On June 6, nominations will be announced in more than a dozen categories, including best comedy and drama series and most exciting new series. It’ll be interesting to see if ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ will be nominated for best reality-competition show and if Cat Deeley makes the list for best reality host. Neither has ever broken through into the equivalent races at the Emmys.

The awards are determined by the new Broadcast Television Journalists’ Assn., an offshoot of the Broadcast Film Critics Assn., which bestows the Critics Choice Movie Awards. See a list of BTJA here.
