Because of the writers' strike, The People's Choice Awards has had to drastically alter its format for 2008. According to Variety, the show will no longer be held at the Shrine Auditorium and will instead be shot like an entertainment news magazine.

Queen Latifah will still host the show, only she will be shot from a soundstage. The program will feature pre-taped clips of honorees accepting their awards. Producers are currently soliciting fans to write in questions that they can ask the stars.

The program will air on January 8th, 2008, at 9 pm on CBS.
