New York, NY, May 7, 2007 � The preeminent night of the year for men will take place when comedian/actor Tracy Morgan hosts Spike TV's first annual "GUYS CHOICE." Spike TV is giving the biggest shout-outs in television history to the things guys love most and is relying on its millions of viewers to decide who to bow down to from the worlds of sports, music, film, television and the internet. The show is scheduled to tape on June 9 at CBS Radford in Los Angeles. Spike TV's "GUYS CHOICE" premieres Wednesday, June 13 at 10:00 PM, ET/PT.

Also, for the first time in awards show history, Spike TV will narrow the field for all awards to only two nominees, so it can be settled like men: �mano a mano.'

Morgan's feature-film credits include "The Longest Yard," "Little Man," "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" and "Head of State."
