Network Picks Up 12-Episode Fifth Season Of "Younger" And 20-Episode Third Season Of "Teachers" For 2018 Premieres

 

New Comedy "Nobodies," Exec Produced by Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone, Already Renewed For Second Season

 

New York, NY – April 20, 2017 – TV Land has renewed its most-watched and critically acclaimed comedies, "Younger" – which has been named "one of the juiciest comfort-watches" by BuzzFeed – and "Teachers," which The Hollywood Reporter called "a little surprise gem," it was announced today by Frank Tanki, General Manager of TV Land. "Younger," which returns June 28th for its fourth season, has been picked up for a 12-episode fifth season, while "Teachers," which returns with the back half of season two this fall, has been renewed for a 20-episode third season. This news comes on top of the early second season renewal of the newly-launched comedy "Nobodies," which stars Hugh Davidson, Larry Dorf and Rachel Ramras, and is executive produced by Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone through their production company On The Day, as well as showrunner Michael McDonald.

 

"We're absolutely thrilled to be bringing back 'Younger' and 'Teachers' for more seasons and double down on our dedication to creating smart, funny, honest and compelling originals," said Tanki.

 

Descriptions of all the series are below:

 

  • "YOUNGER"

"Younger," from "Sex and the City" creator Daren Star, stars two-time Tony® winner Sutton Foster, Hilary Duff, Debi Mazar, Miriam Shor, Nico Tortorella, Peter Hermann and Molly Bernard. The series follows Liza, a 40-year old woman who pretends to be 26 in order to get a job in the highly competitive world of publishing – and succeeds. Last season, as Liza continued her lie, her two lives became irreversibly intertwined – with her longtime best friend, Maggie (Mazar), new friend and partner at Empirical, Kelsey, prickly boss Diana (Shor), and everyone in between, becoming part of the same world. In the season three finale, Liza came to realize the damage her secret has caused and finally unveiled the truth to Kelsey (Hilary Duff). Now Liza will be forced to deal with the fallout of her deceit and learn that the truth hurts. Season four premieres Wednesday, June 28th at 10pm ET/PT. Season five will premiere in 2018.

 

  • "TEACHERS"

"Teachers" revolves around a group of elementary school teachers who are trying to mold the minds of America's youth, but don't have their own lives together at all. The series is written by and stars The Katydids – Caitlin Barlow, Katy Colloton, Cate Freedman, Kate Lambert, Katie O'Brien and Kathryn Renée Thomas – and so far in season two, great guest stars have popped up, including Haley Joel Osment ("Alpha House," "Comedy Bang! Bang!") as Mrs. Adler's husband, Ryan Hansen ("Party Down") as Ms. Snap's rival in a school council race, Jessica St. Clair ("Playing House") as the school counselor, and many more.

 

The rest of season two, returning this fall, will see Ms. Bennigan (O'Brien) keep naively pursuing Hot Dad (guest star Ryan Caltagirone), Mrs. Adler and Ms. Feldman (Freedman) dealing with a "serial pooper" around the school, and even an entire episode taking place in the 1940s. Season three will premiere in 2018.

 

  • "NOBODIES"

"Nobodies" stars and is executive produced and written by Groundlings alums Hugh Davidson, Larry Dorf and Rachel Ramras and revolves around the three as they try desperately to land one of their famous friends for a feature script that they have developed, so that they, too, can rise to fame in Hollywood.

New York, NY – February 21, 2017 – Keith Cox has been elevated to the expanded role of President, Development and Production for Paramount Network and TV Land, it was announced today by Kevin Kay, President of TV Land, CMT and Spike TV (soon to be Paramount Network). In this new position, Cox will oversee the strategic development and production of all series for both TV Land and the newly-announced Paramount Network – slated for early 2018 – which will feature distinctive, high-quality scripted and non-scripted original programming. 

 

"Keith has done an incredible job in building TV Land's slate of strong original scripted series over the last 10 years and reigniting the brand, and I'm thrilled to work with him as he continues to bring his strong creativity and unparalleled talent relationships to the Paramount Network," said Kay. 

 

Cox added, "I am so excited to have the privilege to help build a new premium channel from the ground up with The Paramount Network. It is an extraordinary opportunity to set a new bar for high-quality, character-driven content that resonates with audiences around the world."

 

As one of TV Land's executive producers, Cox developed, produced and launched all of the channel's current original scripted programming. He ushered in new eras at the network, including the first foray into scripted original series with the smash hit "Hot in Cleveland," which ran for six seasons and is now syndicated by CBS Television Distribution.

 

He then helped shape TV Land's new 2015 slate of captivating, unique original series aimed at audiences in their 30s and 40s beginning with Darren Star's "Younger," now entering its fourth season after garnering critical acclaim and massive buzz over the last two years. And the network's hit comedy "Teachers," now in its second season, continues to score series highs.

 

Upcoming projects that Cox has developed include: "Nobodies," executive produced by powerhouse comedy team Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone, which has already been picked up for a second season prior to its March 2017 series premiere; "American Woman," a 1970s period dramedy executive produced by Emmy® winners John Wells ("Shameless," "The West Wing") and John Riggi ("30 Rock"); and the one hour pitch black anthology "Heathers," based on the cult classic film. 

 

Prior to joining TV Land, Cox held the post of Executive Vice President, Comedy and Alternative Development at the WB Television Network, where he oversaw all of the network's half-hour and reality development of such hits as Ashton Kutcher's "Beauty and the Geek" and 51 Minds' "Surreal Life." He was also instrumental in the development of such critical successes as "Starlet" and "Pop Stars 2." Cox joined the WB in 2001 as Senior Vice President, Alternative Programming at the WB.

 

Earlier, he worked at Greenblatt/Janollari as Vice President of Comedy and Drama Development, and he was part of the team that developed "Six Feet Under," "The Hughleys," and the online cult favorite, "Heat Vision and Jack" directed by Ben Stiller and starring Jack Black and Christine Taylor. Cox began his career as Director of Programming during the early days of FX before joining Warner Brothers Television, where he developed several shows for NBC's powerhouse Thursday night line-up.

New York, NY – January 20th, 2017 – TV Land has cast actor and social media celeb Ray Diaz ("East Los High," "Real Husbands of Hollywood") on the second season of "Lopez" starring comedian George Lopez, which returns to the network on Wednesday, March 29th at 10:30pm ET/PT. Diaz will make his debut in the first episode of the new season as Hector, a friend from Manolo's (Anthony "Citric" Campos) past, who becomes like a son to George and a little brother to Manolo and Maronzio (Maronzio Vance). With George's help, Hector tries to get on his feet and find something he's good at. The ladies love him, but that doesn't seem to get him very far.

 

After working all through season one to get a residency show in Vegas, season two of "Lopez" finds George frustrated with the tediousness of having to do the same show every night. Along with his manager Olly (Hayley Huntley) and his opening act Maronzio, George tries to move on to bigger and better things that will make him relevant again. This season will also see George exchange one-off dates for a steadier romantic relationship, and Manolo will go back to school to earn his degree.

 

"Lopez" is executive produced and written by George Lopez, John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky ("Silicon Valley," "King of the Hill"). Michael Rotenberg ("It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia") of 3 Arts Entertainment also serves as executive producer.

Johnson, CaseyTVL Release Content Page layout “HEATHERS” ANTHOLOGY ORDERED TO SERIES AT TV LAND

FIRST EVER HOUR-LONG SERIES FOR NETWORK WILL DEBUT FALL 2017


Pasadena, CA – January 13, 2017 – TV Land has picked up its first ever hour-long series with "Heathers," it was announced today at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour by Keith Cox, President of Development and Production for TV Land. The first season is a 10-episode order and is set to premiere in Fall 2017. Based on the 1988 cult classic film of the same name, "Heathers" is a pitch-black comedy anthology set in the present day, as our heroine Veronica Sawyer (Grace Victoria Cox, "Under the Dome") deals with a very different but equally vicious group of Heathers. Also starring are James Scully as JD, Melanie Field ("Wicked" National Tour) as Heather Chandler, Brendan Scannell ("Funny or Die") as Heather Duke, and Jasmine Mathews as Heather McNamara. It was also revealed in November that original "Heathers" cast member Shannen Doherty will guest star as a pivotal, unnamed character in the TV Land series.

 

"Our take on 'Heathers' is a cinematic, surprising and twisted comedy that gives a wonderful nod to the film while also creating something entirely its own,"  said Cox. "We're really passionate about this show and the satirical story-telling its provocative characters allow."

 

Jason Micallef ("Butter"), who wrote the pilot script, will serve as executive producer and showrunner, and Leslye Headland ("Sleeping with Other People," "Bachelorette") directed and was an executive producer on the pilot. Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi executive produce for Lakeshore Entertainment.  Brad Gardner will executive produce for TV Land.

McHale, HeatherTVL Release Content Page layout KEITH COX PROMOTED TO PRESIDENT, DEVELOPMENT AND PRODUCTION FOR TV LANDDownload

New York, NY – Sept. 14, 2016 – Keith Cox has been promoted to President, Development and Production for TV Land, it was announced today by Cyma Zarghami, President of Viacom’s Kids and Family Group, which includes TV Land, CMT and Nickelodeon. Cox, who was most recently Executive Vice President of Development and Original Programming for the network, will continue to be based in Los Angeles and report to Zarghami.

 

“Keith has been instrumental in shaping TV Land's original series over the last 10 years, first by bringing ‘Hot in Cleveland’ to the network in 2010, and by continuing to attract top-tier creative and talent from across the industry,” said Zarghami. “He has helped put the network on the map as a premier destination for quality original series through his strategic leadership of content development and his keen eye for creators and stories with a distinct point of view. Led by shows like ‘Younger’ and ‘Teachers,’ it’s exciting to see TV Land’s content pipeline connect to new and entirely different audiences.”

 

The marquee series in TV Land’s reinvention is “Younger,” helmed by prolific and renowned television creator Darren Star, and starring Sutton Foster, Hilary Duff and Debi Mazar. Going into its third season this fall and renewed for a fourth, “Younger” has been hugely successful, and Cox announced earlier this year that he closed a deal with Star to remain on the comedy and develop another series for the network.

 

With top talent in front of and behind the camera, TV Land’s recently announced pick-ups include “Nobodies,” executive produced by Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone, and the Funny or Die-produced “Throwing Shade,” based on the hit podcast.  TV Land is also shooting pilots for an adaptation of “The First Wives Club,” starring Alyson Hannigan, Megan Hilty and Vanessa Lachey, and written and produced by “Sex and the City’s” Jenny Bicks and “New Girl’s” Rebecca Addelman, and “American Woman,” a story inspired by the childhood of Kyle Richards – produced by John Wells, written by John Riggi and starring Alicia Silverstone and Mena Suvari. Additionally, the network has announced a pilot based on the cult classic film “Heathers,” written by Jason Micallef (“Butter”), directed by Leslye Headland (“Bachelorette”) and executive produced by Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi for Lakeshore Entertainment. 

 

As one of TV Land’s executive producers, Cox developed, produced and launched all of the channel’s current original scripted programming. The first, “Hot in Cleveland,” ran for six seasons and is now syndicated by CBS Television Distribution.

 

Prior to joining TV Land, Cox held the post of Executive Vice President, Comedy and Alternative Development at the WB Television Network, where he oversaw all of the network’s half-hour and reality development of such hits as Ashton Kutcher’s “Beauty and the Geek” and 51 Minds’ “Surreal Life.” He was also instrumental in the development of such critical successes as “Starlet” and “Pop Stars 2.” Cox joined the WB in 2001 as Senior Vice President, Alternative Programming at the WB.

 

Earlier, he worked at Greenblatt/Janollari as Vice President of Comedy and Drama Development, and he was part of the team that developed “Six Feet Under,” “The Hughleys,” and the online cult favorite, “Heat Vision and Jack” directed by Ben Stiller and starring Jack Black and Christine Taylor. Cox began his career as Director of Programming during the early days of FX before joining Warner Brothers Television, where he developed several shows for NBC’s powerhouse Thursday night line-up.

Los Angeles, CA – September 6, 2016 – After  announcing a script deal in March, TV Land has greenlit the pilot for "Heathers," based on the 1988 cult classic film of the same name.

Los Angeles, CA -- July 11, 2016 -- Hitmen, cops, prostitutes and parishioners are all part of Pastor Buddy's daily life in his newly adopted sleepy town.  Starring Michael Rosenbaum, the second season of "Impastor" picks up with Buddy's  life hanging in the balance as he tries to escape capture from both the police and a dangerous criminal from his past.  All the while he must juggle his godly responsibilities to his still unsuspecting staff.  Season Two of "Impastor" premieres on Wednesday, September 28th at 10:30pm ET/PT following the season three premiere of "Younger" on TV Land.  

 

"Impastor," a single-camera comedy from Christopher Vane ("Wings"), stars Michael Rosenbaum ("Smallville"), Sara Rue ("Less Than Perfect"), Mircea Monroe ("Episodes"), Mike Kosinski (The Second City Chicago), and David Rasche ("Ugly Betty"). The series revolves around Buddy Dobbs, a gambling, pot-smoking slacker on the run from a loan shark, who steals a man's identity and ends up posing as the new gay pastor in a small, tight-knit town. Though he's tempted to immediately run off with the pastor's money, Buddy has a change of heart when he realizes that the people there, including his prim church assistant Dora (Rue), actually like this new and semi-improved alter ego…and he kind of likes them back.

 

"Impastor" is executive produced by Vane and Rosenbaum, along with Eric and Kim Tannenbaum ("Two and a Half Men") and Rob Greenberg ("How I Met Your Mother").

McHale, HeatherTVL Release Content Page layout TV LAND PICKS UP DARREN STAR’S FAN FAVORITE “YOUNGER” FOR FOURTH SEASON AS PRODUCTION BEGINS ON SEASON THREE

Highly-Anticipated Season Three to Premiere on TV Land on Wednesday, September 28th at 10pm ET/PT

 

 

New York, NY – June 14, 2016 – TV Land's critically-acclaimed, fan favorite comedy series "Younger," from "Sex and the City" creator Darren Star, has been renewed for a 12-episode fourth season, it was announced today by Keith Cox, Executive Vice President of Development and Original Programming for the network. The news comes on the heels of the series, starring two-time Tony® winner Sutton Foster, Hilary Duff, Debi Mazar, Miriam Shor, Nico Tortorella, Peter Hermann and Molly Bernard, beginning production on its third season this week in New York. Season three of "Younger" will premiere on Wednesday, September 28th at 10pm ET/PT, followed by the season two premiere of "Impastor," which was originally scheduled for this summer.

 

The second season of "Younger" continued to grow from the first season and through the second. Season two finished with double digit gains among all key demos (up +67% with Adults 25-54; +66% among Women 25-54; +63% with Adults 18-49; +60% among Women 18-49)  versus the series' season one average. Social media numbers climbed as well from end of season one to end of season two, tripling the series' followers on Instagram, doubling its following on Twitter and seeing a +40% increase in Facebook fans. VOD orders also tripled from the premiere episode to the finale episode of season two – a number sure to grow now that seasons one and two are available for binge-watching on TV Land On Demand, and also the TV Land app.

 

"The show is a force in and of itself, so it's a no-brainer to renew it again," said Cox. "Critics and fans love it, and I know Darren and the entire cast and crew behind 'Younger' will continue to deliver at the top of their game."

 

"Younger" follows Liza (Foster), a 40-year old woman who pretends to be 26 in order to get a job in the highly competitive world of publishing – and succeeds. Now working under the prickly Diana (Shor), Liza has to figure out how to balance her real life with best friend Maggie (Mazar), and her "pretend" life with her new crew – friend/coworker Kelsey (Duff) and fashion publicist Lauren (Bernard). At the end of season two, Liza's secret took a tragic turn when Kelsey's fiancé Thad (Dan Amboyer) was killed in an accident right after he discovered her lie, and Liza's love life is in disarray as she tries to choose between on-again/off-again boyfriend Josh (Nico Tortorella) and her boss Charles (Peter Hermann), with whom she has an undeniable connection.

 

"Younger" is created, executive produced and written by Darren Star, with Tony Hernandez of JAX Media executive producing for TV Land. Dottie Zicklin and Eric Zicklin also serve as executive producers and writers on the series.

See Clip From Pilot Now​!


New York, NY – April 15, 2016 – TV Land is getting into the late night game with a series pick-up for "Throwing Shade," the hit podcast and Funny Or Die video series, with a 10-episode order, slated to premiere in January 2017 in the 11pm ET/PT timeslot. The political and pop culture late night show, which will have a live audience, stars Erin Gibson ("Parks and Recreation," "Kroll Show") and Bryan Safi ("Modern Family," "Superstore") as themselves and will bring their unique perspective to the hottest topics of today, from feminism and gay rights to the latest celebrity nonsense.

"This amazing, weird brainchild of Erin and Bryan translates perfectly into a weekly late night show," said Keith Cox, Executive Vice President, Development and Original Programming, TV Land. "We can't wait to see them take on the most recent and ridiculous news of 2017."

Creators Gibson and Safi launched "Throwing Shade" as a podcast in 2011, a yearly, multi-city, sold-out touring stage show in 2012, and in 2013, Funny Or Die picked it up for a video series. The TV Land show will be executive produced by Gibson and Safi, as well as Funny Or Die's Andrew Steele, Anna Wenger and Joe Farrell, and Charlie Siskel ("Review," "Tosh.0") will executive produce and serve as showrunner.

"Throwing Shade" is the latest in a series of projects that are reinventing TV Land into a destination for contemporary, fresh original programming. The network recently announced a pilot script order for a TV anthology series based on the 1989 cult film "Heathers," and pilot orders for a comedy called "Nobodies," from executive producers Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone, an adaptation of "The First Wives Club" from "Sex and the City's" Jenny Bicks and "New Girl's" Rebecca Addelman, and an untitled project based on the real life of Kyle Richards ("The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills") from multiple Emmy® Award-winners John Wells ("Shameless," "The West Wing") and John Riggi ("30 Rock").

"The Jim Gaffigan Show" will premiere two back-to-back episodes on Father's Day, Sunday, June 19th at 10PM ET/PT


"Impastor" to return the following week with two back-to-back episodes on Sunday, June 26th at 10:30PM ET/PT

 

New York, NY – April 14, 2016 – This summer, TV Land is giving you a reason NOT to dread the end of the weekend! Beginning Sunday nights in June, "The Jim Gaffigan Show" and "Impastor" will return for their second seasons.

 

With hilarious guest star turns and cameos by Jerry Seinfeld, Zachary Quinto, Alec Baldwin, Raven Symoné, John Mulaney, Macaulay Culkin, John Mulaney, Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Judy Gold, Carrot Top, Gilbert Gottfried, Artie Lange, Nickelback, Perez Hilton, Tyler Oakley and many more, "one of summer TV's bright spots" (People), The Jim Gaffigan Show," will return for season two on (appropriately) Father's Day – Sunday, June 19th at 10:00pm ET/PT with two back-to-back episodes. The series is a fictionalized version of stand-up comedian Jim Gaffigan's real life as he navigates fatherhood, his career and an incurable obsession with food, and this season will get even more inside Jim's head, looking at all his neuroses about being in the ever-critical limelight and his marriage to wife Jeannie (Ashley Williams) and children. The comedy also stars Michael Ian Black ("Wet Hot American Summer") as Jeannie's friend, Daniel, who not-so-subtly dislikes Jim, and Adam Goldberg ("No Way Jose") as Jim's friend and fellow comedian, Dave. The show was co-created by Peter Tolan ("Rescue Me") and executive producer Jim Gaffigan, and is also executive produced by Jeannie Gaffigan. Alex Murray and Sandy Wernick of Brillstein Entertainment Partners also executive produce. JAX Media's Tony Hernandez will executive produce for TV Land. The season will have 12 episodes.

 

On "Impastor," which will return with two back-to-back episodes on Sunday, June 26th at 10:30pm ET/PT, we left Buddy Dobbs (Michael Rosenbaum, "Smallville") in a cliffhanger season finale. His past had finally started to catch up with him when Damien, the man he owed money to, came calling. The series follows Buddy, a slacker with gambling debt as he tries to escape his old life, by assuming the identity of a gay pastor, Jonathan Barlow, who died while trying to save Buddy from jumping off a bridge. Buddy assumed Barlow's life and relocated to the small town of Ladner where he serves as the town pastor. With the new identity, he thought he could escape his old life, but he was wrong. "Impastor" also stars Sara Rue ("Less Than Perfect"), Mircea Monroe ("Episodes"), David Rasche ("Sledge Hammer!"), and Mike Kosinski (Second City). The show, which will have a 10-episode second season, is executive produced by Christopher Vane and Rosenbaum, along with Eric and Kim Tannenbaum ("Two and a Half Men") and Rob Greenberg ("How I Met Your Mother.")

BOB ODENKIRK PAYS TRIBUTE TO LATE COMEDIAN GARRY SHANDLING

 

GEORGE LOPEZ HOSTS EVENT PREMIERING SUNDAY, APRIL 17TH AT 9PM ET/PT ON TV LAND

 

 

Los Angeles, CA – April 10, 2016 – Television's most entertaining night of the year brought the house down as the TV Land Icon Awards in Celebration with Entertainment Weekly taped last night at The Barker Hangar in Santa Monica. Premiering Sunday, April 17th at 9pm ET/PT on TV Land, the awards show kicked off with host George Lopez saying that his first pitch to the network, "Comedians in Cars Getting Churros," was passed on. The ceremony honored John Stamos with the Timeless Icon Award, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele with the Comedy Duo Icon Award, Debbie Allen with the Trailblazer Icon Award and "The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story," with the Instant Icon Award. The night also featured a tribute to the late comedic legend, Garry Shandling presented by longtime friend, Bob Odenkirk.

 

John Stamos received the Timeless Icon Award, which is presented to an entertainer whose extraordinary work spans generations. His "Full House" and "Fuller House" co-stars Lori Loughlin and Dave Coulier, "Grandfathered" co-stars Paget Brewster and Josh Peck, and legendary television creator and film producer Garry Marshall presented him with his award after Candace Cameron Bure, Jimmy Kimmel, Don Rickles and Bob Saget toasted Stamos in a pre-recorded tribute. The GRAMMY-winning band The Beach Boys performed a mash-up of their mega-hits, including "Wouldn't It Be Nice," "Good Vibrations," and "Fun, Fun, Fun," before Stamos himself jumped on stage and joined them on the drums for a special performance of "Barbara Ann." Accepting his award, an emotional Stamos graciously thanked his fans for letting him in their living rooms all these years.

 

Rob Huebel presented Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, of the award-winning hit Comedy Central series "Key & Peele," with the Comedy Duo Icon Award, celebrating their hilarious sketches that instantly turn viral. Huebel spiced things up with a one-man improv jam as part of his introduction. Upon receiving their award, the duo humorously thanked everyone for knowing they have a show. They also thanked teenage sons for introducing their parents to their show over the holidays, and paid homage to fellow honoree Norman Lear by thanking him for groundbreaking shows such as "All in the Family" and "Good Times."

 

Innovative choreographer, director, actress and three-time Emmy® winner Debbie Allen ("FAME," "A Different World," "Scandal") received the Trailblazer Icon Award and actress Ellen Pompeo, whom Allen co-stars with and directs on the hit drama "Grey's Anatomy," presented her with the award. Before introducing a montage featuring Kerry Washington, Jada Pinkett Smith and Taraji P. Henson, Pompeo said that Allen is "always finding ways to help others while doing all of her other work." In the pre-recorded video, Washington said Allen was her "shero" and Smith said, "She's changed the game for many people and that's what makes her a true icon." Lastly, Henson remarked about Allen that she "never forgets to keep raising creative artists." Dancers then rushed the stage for an electrifying performance to the iconic song "Fame," as part of Allen's tribute.

 

Sutton Foster introduced the IHOP Fan Favorite Character Icon Award, which fans were able to vote on for weeks leading up to the taping. Jim Parsons, who plays the forever-nerdy Sheldon Cooper on the long-running hit sitcom "The Big Bang Theory" won the award.

 

The ceremony also included a heartfelt tribute to a comedic legend and inspiration, Emmy® Award-winning Garry Shandling ("The Larry Sanders Show," "It's Garry Shandling's Show"), presented by his longtime friend, "Better Call Saul" star Bob Odenkirk, who said that "when Garry asked you how you're doing he actually wanted you to answer."

 

FX's hit series, the much-talked about drama "The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story," was honored with the Instant Icon Award, with Oscar® winner Cuba Gooding Jr. accepting on behalf of the series' stars, creators and producers. "Entertainment Tonight's" Kevin Frazier presented Gooding with the award. Upon receiving the award, Gooding said, "It is so humbling…we are incredibly grateful to you, the fans. There isn't a day that goes by that someone doesn't say how affected they are. The show succeeded on so many levels and we're thrilled it connected so deeply with viewers."

 

The show-stopping finale of the TV Land Icon Awards was a tribute to three-time Emmy® Award winner, the renowned television creator Norman Lear, who received the Impact Icon Award, praising individuals that have made a significant impression on American entertainment and culture. Seth McFarlane, who  presented Lear with the award, remarked, "[Lear] is 50 years older than me and better than me all around," and comedian and sitcom star Jerrod Carmichael said in a pre-taped message that Lear "has created art that has genuinely touched people's lives. " Oscar®, Emmy®, Tony® and GRAMMY® winner Rita Moreno and "Good Times" star Jimmie Walker appeared in Lear's tribute, and "Hollywood Game Night" host Jane Lynch toasted and paid homage to Lear, saying that his work in television made the world more welcoming for everyone. "Glee" star and recording artist Amber Riley and "The Voice" winner Javier Colon performed a special medley of theme songs from Lear's shows, bringing the crowd to its feet and ending the night with standing ovation.

 

The TV Land Icon Awards is produced by TV Land Productions, and Eddie Delbridge, Shelly Sumpter Gillyard and Jay Schmalholz are executive producers.
