The 2 Broke Girls are taking over The People’s Choice Awards!

Beth Behrs and Kat Dennings — who play financially strapped Brooklyn waitresses on the CBS sitcom — are teaming up to host the 40th annual People’s Choice Awards on Jan. 8. The show will mark the duo’s first hosting gig.

“Kat and Beth are great additions to our People’s Choice family and we are excited to have them host the show,” said People’s Choice Awards Executive Producer Mark Burnett in a statement. “Their energy and charisma are a perfect fit for our audience.”

Behrs and Dennings are no strangers to the fan-driven award show. They were both on hand to accept a People’s Choice trophy for Favorite New TV Comedy for 2 Broke Girls in 2012 (see photo above).

The 40th annual People’s Choice Awards will air live from the Nokia Theater L.A. Live on Wednesday, Jan 8, 2014 at 9 p.m. E.T on CBS.
