Tim Allen will host the 8th annual TV Land Awards, the network announced.

"Tim Allen is a versatile and hilarious performer who fits perfectly into the plans for this year's TV Land Awards," Larry W. Jones, president of TV Land, said. "We are thrilled to have him as our host this year."

Allen, who starred in ABC's Home Improvement for eight years, will again voice Buzz Lightyear in the Disney/Pixar animated film Toy Story 3, scheduled to hit theaters June 18. Allen's last on-screen appearance came in his feature film directorial debut, Crazy on the Outside, which co-starred Ray Liotta and Sigourney Weaver.  It's scheduled to come out on DVD next month.
