New date for Critics’ Choice

Kudofest will take place Jan. 10 on the Frog

An audience-vs.-critics smackdown has been averted: The Broadcast Film Critics Assn. and the WB have decided to move this January’s Critics’ Choice Awards.

Kudofest will now take place Monday, Jan. 10, airing live on the Frog starting at 8 p.m. The awards show was originally slated to air Jan. 9, until the long-running Peoples’ Choice Awards announced plans to plant their flag there.

Rather than face off with another kudocast, the critics org, net and producer Bob Bain decided to make the move. As part of the switch, Frog will no longer air a pre-show (which would have run at 7 p.m. that Sunday). E! Entertainment TV has rights to the Critics’ Choice red carpet coverage.

Meanwhile, the WB also announced “Will & Grace” star Eric McCormack would return for his second year as host of the show.

The Critics’ Choice Awards — which last year predicted the Oscar winners in all six major categories — are chosen by members of the BFCA.
