TV Land Award
The TV Land Icon Awards is an American television awards ceremony that generally commemorates shows now off the air, rather than in current production as with the Emmys. Created by Executive Producer Michael Levitt, the awards were hosted and broadcast by the TV Land network from 2003–2012 and then returned to the air in 2015.
Awards are given in various categories (which change slightly from year to year) and originally included awards voted on by visitors to TV Land's website; they are given to both individual actors/actresses and to entire television series. The TV Land Award statuettes are made by New York firm, Society Awards.
In March 2013, TV Land announced that there would be no TV Land Awards for that year. A network spokesman said, "We love the TV Land Awards and think there is great value in the franchise, but we will not be producing the show this spring.” After skipping 2014 as well, the Awards returned on April 18, 2015. For the 2016 ceremony, the awards were renamed the "TV Land Icon Awards". There was no TV Land Awards ceremony for the spring of 2017, and the show did not reappear in the spring of 2018, either, and there has been no word on whether the Awards will ever return.
