THE SEVENTH ANNUAL TV LAND AWARDS TO HONOR

“M*A*S*H,” “MARRIED WITH CHILDREN,” “HOME IMPROVEMENT,” “MAGNUM P.I.,” “KNOTS LANDING” AND “TWO AND A HALF MEN” AMONG OTHERS



The Legacy of Laughter Award Recipient is Julia Louis-Dreyfus



Show Tapes Sunday, April 19th at the Gibson Amphitheatre;

Premieres Sunday, April 26th at 8PM ET/PT on TV Land



Los Angeles, CA – March 24, 2009 – TV Land announced today that it will pay tribute to “M*A*S*H,” “Married with Children,” “Home Improvement,” “Magnum P.I.,” “Knots Landing” and “Two and a Half Men” at the 7th Annual TV Land Awards. Hosted by Neil Patrick Harris (“How I Met Your Mother,” Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle and Assassins), the two-hour show will tape on Sunday, April 19th at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City and will air on TV Land during a special presentation of TV Land PRIME on Sunday, April 26th at 8PM ET/PT.

All of this year’s honorees are cultural icons representing a cross-section of classic and modern television that viewers love. The Legacy of Laughter Award will be presented to television actress and “Seinfeld” alum Julia Louis-Dreyfus. “M*A*S*H” will be honored with the Impact Award. The Innovator Award will be given to the unconventional Fox sitcom “Married with Children.” The classic CBS soap opera “Knots Landing” celebrates its 30th anniversary this year and will be recognized for its place in television history. The Fan Favorite Award will be presented to “Home Improvement,” and the action drama “Magnum P.I.”- which launched the career of Tom Selleck as a leading actor - will be bestowed with the Hero Award. Finally, the hit sitcom “Two and a Half Men” will be awarded the Future Classic Award.



Below are details on this year’s honorees:



THE LEGACY OF LAUGHTER AWARD



This award is presented to an entertainer whose comedic work continues to serve as an inspiration and a guiding force. This year’s recipient is Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Julia Louis-Dreyfus got her first career breakthrough as a cast member on “Saturday Night Live.” Whether it was her dry wit comedy or that feisty shove with the catch phrase “Get out!” on “Seinfeld,” or her hilarious take on portraying a single mother trying to raise her son - and to her dismay learns that her ex-husband is seeing a much younger women named Christine - hence the name of her hit comedy “The New Adventures of Old Christine,” Julia Louis-Dreyfus’s comedy always delivers. The recipient of the Legacy of Laughter award serves as an ideal appreciation to those who have provided the invigorating healing power of laughter. The first recipient to have received such an award was Lucille Ball for her awe-inspiring work which continues to set a precedent for those who receive this great honor.



THE IMPACT AWARD



This award is given to a show that offered both entertainment and enlightenment, always striving for both humor and humanity, with comedy that reflected reality. This year's recipient is “M*A*S*H.”

Based on the 1970 Robert Altman film of the same name, “M*A*S*H” revolves around life at the 4077th Mobile Army Surgical Hospital. The show stars Alan Alda as Dr. Benjamin Franklin “Hawkeye” Pierce and Wayne Rogers as Dr. “Trapper” John McIntyre, two brilliant surgeons often pre-occupied with attractive nurses, practical jokes and merry-making. Their relaxed approach is a source of consternation for other medical staffers including Dr. Frank Burns (Larry Linville) and Lt. Margaret “Hot Lips” Houlihan (Loretta Swit), whose secret love affair is no secret. During the fourth season, there were significant changes in the medical staff including B.J. Hunnicutt (Mike Farrell), who debuted as the new surgeon and replaced Trapper as Hawkeye’s teammate and co-conspirator.



THE FAN FAVORITE AWARD



The Fan Favorite is awarded to an All-American classic that won the hearts of television viewers, with characters who became our friends, stories we could all relate to and irresistible laughs. The 2009 Fan Favorite is “Home Improvement.”

Launching stand-up comedian Tim Allen into a full-force television star, “Home Improvement” was one of ABC’s most popular family comedies during the 1990s. The sitcom centered on local celebrity Tim Taylor (Tim Allen), who hosted the fictional series “Tool Time” along with his assistant Al (Richard Karn). At home, Tim was a bit of klutz when it came to handling tools and fixing things around the house that he shared with his wife Jill(Patricia Richardson) and his three sons Brad, Randy and Mark (Zachery Ty Bryan, Jonathan Taylor Thomas and Taran Noah Smith), providing endless laughs.



THE HERO AWARD

The Hero Award salutes a lead character whose crime-solving feats were astounding, yet remained thoroughly authentic, offering equal parts of street smarts, wit and charisma - in this case, all wrapped up in floral prints. This year’s recipient is “Magnum P.I.

“Magnum, P.I.” starred Tom Selleck as Thomas Magnum, a detective living in Hawaii. Magnum guards the estate of a wealthy writer, Robin Master (who viewers never saw), and when he wasn’t working, he was romancing the ladies or tooling around with the amenities of the estate. However, the one mystery that he never seemed to solve was whether or not Jonathan Higgins III (John Hillerman) was Robin Masters!



THE INNOVATOR AWARD



This award is presented to a series whose influence is still felt and evident in television today. It is most exemplified by a show that carved out new territory, re-defining elements of the genre and opening pathways for others to follow. TV Land will honor “Married with Children” as this year's recipient.

One of the first primetime and controversial sitcoms that established FOX as a legitimate network, “Married with Children” redefined the meaning of a tight-knit family and also helped break barriers for comedies to continue to discuss unsuitable topics, much like “All in the Family” did in the late 1970s. The comedy focused on Al Bundy (Ed O’Neill), a bigoted, dim-witted shoe salesman unlucky in life, and his wife, Peg (Katey Segal), a housewife who didn’t do much except shop and style her highly coiffed red hair while dispensing her signature brand of sarcasm. Their daughter Kelly (Christina Applegate) was the hot, blonde airhead while their son Bud (David Faustino) was the unsuccessful bad boy. Along with their dog Buck, the Bundys often bickered with their obnoxious neighbor Marcy (Amanda Bearse), her ex-husband Steve (David Garrison) and later – Marcy’s second husband Jefferson (Ted McGinley).



THE ANNIVERSARY AWARD



TV Land will celebrate “Knots Landing’s” 30th Anniversary as one of the longest-running primetime soap-operas in television history. With its unpredictable storylines, intriguing characters and surprising plots, it charmed audiences and critics alike while creating a pathway for future programs.

Originally conceived as a spin-off of another popular soap-opera - “Dallas” - “Knots Landing” aired on CBS from 1979-1993. Loosely based on the 1973 film“Scenes From a Marriage,” creator David Jacobs developed the drama that focused on the adventures of several families, which included married couple Gary and Valene Ewing (Ted Shackelford and Joan Van Ark) as they moved from Dallas to the fictional town of Seaview Circle to start a new life. Once on the verge of cancellation, the drama, which starred Ted Shackleford, Joan Van Ark, Don Murray, Michele Lee and Nicollette Sheridan, was saved by critics and viewers who were intrigued with the stories featured in each episode. Today, “Knots Landing” remains a cult classic with reruns airing in syndication across the world.



THE FUTURE CLASSIC AWARD



This award was unveiled by TV Land in 1998 and is presented annually to a show that best exemplifies the qualities of a television show that will stand the test of time and become a television classic. “Two and a Half Men” is this year’s recipient of the Future Classic Award.

“Two and a Half Men” stars Charlie Sheen as Charlie Harper, a bachelor whose lifestyle is cut short when his newly separated, uptight brother Alan (Jon Cryer) moves in along with his son, Jake (Angus T. Jones). If that’s not enough, Charlie and Alan’s narcissistic mother -played by Holland Taylor - decides she wants to spend more time with her boys. Alan’s ex- wife Judith (Marin Hinkle) and the slightly crazy and Charlie-obsessed neighbor Rose (Melanie Lynskey) also help provide laughter amid the typical family drama all while Charlie, Alan and Jake continue to form a tighter bond.

At home, Tim was a bit of klutz when it came to handling tools and fixing things around the house that he shared with his wife Jill(Patricia Richardson) and his three sons Brad, Randy and Mark (Zachery Ty Bryan, Jonathan Taylor Thomas and Taran Noah Smith), providing endless laughs.



THE HERO AWARD

The Hero Award salutes a lead character whose crime-solving feats were astounding, yet remained thoroughly authentic, offering equal parts of street smarts, wit and charisma - in this case, all wrapped up in floral prints. This year’s recipient is “Magnum P.I.

“Magnum, P.I.” starred Tom Selleck as Thomas Magnum, a detective living in Hawaii. Magnum guards the estate of a wealthy writer, Robin Master (who viewers never saw), and when he wasn’t working, he was romancing the ladies or tooling around with the amenities of the estate. However, the one mystery that he never seemed to solve was whether or not Jonathan Higgins III (John Hillerman) was Robin Masters!



THE INNOVATOR AWARD



This award is presented to a series whose influence is still felt and evident in television today. It is most exemplified by a show that carved out new territory, re-defining elements of the genre and opening pathways for others to follow. TV Land will honor “Married with Children” as this year's recipient.

One of the first primetime and controversial sitcoms that established FOX as a legitimate network, “Married with Children” redefined the meaning of a tight-knit family and also helped break barriers for comedies to continue to discuss unsuitable topics, much like “All in the Family” did in the late 1970s. The comedy focused on Al Bundy (Ed O’Neill), a bigoted, dim-witted shoe salesman unlucky in life, and his wife, Peg (Katey Segal), a housewife who didn’t do much except shop and style her highly coiffed red hair while dispensing her signature brand of sarcasm. Their daughter Kelly (Christina Applegate) was the hot, blonde airhead while their son Bud (David Faustino) was the unsuccessful bad boy. Along with their dog Buck, the Bundys often bickered with their obnoxious neighbor Marcy (Amanda Bearse), her ex-husband Steve (David Garrison) and later – Marcy’s second husband Jefferson (Ted McGinley).



THE ANNIVERSARY AWARD



TV Land will celebrate “Knots Landing’s” 30th Anniversary as one of the longest-running primetime soap-operas in television history. With its unpredictable storylines, intriguing characters and surprising plots, it charmed audiences and critics alike while creating a pathway for future programs.

Originally conceived as a spin-off of another popular soap-opera - “Dallas” - “Knots Landing” aired on CBS from 1979-1993. Loosely based on the 1973 film“Scenes From a Marriage,” creator David Jacobs developed the drama that focused on the adventures of several families, which included married couple Gary and Valene Ewing (Ted Shackelford and Joan Van Ark) as they moved from Dallas to the fictional town of Seaview Circle to start a new life. Once on the verge of cancellation, the drama, which starred Ted Shackleford, Joan Van Ark, Don Murray, Michele Lee and Nicollette Sheridan, was saved by critics and viewers who were intrigued with the stories featured in each episode. Today, “Knots Landing” remains a cult classic with reruns airing in syndication across the world.



THE FUTURE CLASSIC AWARD



This award was unveiled by TV Land in 1998 and is presented annually to a show that best exemplifies the qualities of a television show that will stand the test of time and become a television classic. “Two and a Half Men” is this year’s recipient of the Future Classic Award.

“Two and a Half Men” stars Charlie Sheen as Charlie Harper, a bachelor whose lifestyle is cut short when his newly separated, uptight brother Alan (Jon Cryer) moves in along with his son, Jake (Angus T. Jones). If that’s not enough, Charlie and Alan’s narcissistic mother -played by Holland Taylor - decides she wants to spend more time with her boys. Alan’s ex- wife Judith (Marin Hinkle) and the slightly crazy and Charlie-obsessed neighbor Rose (Melanie Lynskey) also help provide laughter amid the typical family drama all while Charlie, Alan and Jake continue to form a tighter bond.

Sounds like it'll be a good show. I don't know how Men didn't get the Future Classic award before (or how The Office beat it to it). Julia Louis-Dreyfus is much deserving of the Legacy of Laughter award, so congrats to her!

Knots ****in' Landing!

I approve. Too bad they don't do like they did for the first TVLand Awards and do marathons of all of the honored shows. I could use a few Knots episodes!

About Don Rickles

Known for unleashing his "insult" style of comedy by throwing "off the cuff" lines that charmed audiences for many years and considered one of our most celebrated entertainers, Don Rickles continues to sell out venues in cities worldwide and make frequent television appearances on talk shows such as "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno," "Larry King Live," "Late Show With David Letterman," and "Live With Regis and Kelly." His recent work included being the subject of the HBO documentary, Mr. Warmth: The Don Rickles Project, directed by John Landis, for which he won a Primetime Emmy in 2008 for his performance. The feature went on to win an additional Emmy for Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Special.

As an actor, Rickles has balanced roles on both the big and small screens. He portrayed the role of Billy Sherbert in the Martin Scorsese-directed Casino (Universal Pictures), opposite Robert De Niro, Sharon Stone and Joe Pesci. His additional film credits include the Paramount ensemble comedy Rat Race, the cult classic Kelly's Heroes with Clint Eastwood and the war-drama Run Silent, Run Deep, opposite leads Clark Gable and Burt Lancaster, among many others.

Don is also well-known for voicing the character of Mr. Potato Head in Disney/Pixar's computer-animated family features Toy Story 1 and 2, and will reprise his role in the upcoming third installment of the popular franchise.

Rickles started out in comedy clubs, but appearing on "The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson" in the 1960's is what got him noticed. He became the talk of the industry, the media and the public which gave him the opportunity to perform stand-up comedy on television. He appeared on the prime-time variety program "The Dean Martin Show" demonstrating what he does best: entertain people. Stars like Bob Hope, Bob Newhart, Lena Horne and Ricardo Montalban were among Rickles' targets on the show. Don Rickles was here to stay. He would later star in primetime series for ABC, NBC, CBS and FOX, as well as host or co-host seven television specials. He also made memorable guest appearances on a potpourri of dramas, sitcoms and variety shows including “Murphy Brown,” “Run For Your Life,” “I Spy,” “The Lucy Show,” “The Beverly Hillbillies,” “The Dick Van Dyke Show,” “The Twilight Zone,” “Saturday Night Live,” “Laugh In” and numerous turns on “The Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts.”



Adding to his impressive resume, he has become a best-selling author. In 2007, he released his memoir for Simon & Schuster called Rickles' Book and the following year Rickles' Letters was published.



Among his many awards and honors, Rickles is the recipient of Caesar’s Palace’s Laurel Award and the United States Comedy & Arts Festival’s 2007 Pinnacle Award for his distinguished career.



Originally born in New York City, Rickles currently resides in Los Angeles.

TV LAND ORDERS THIRD SEASON OF HIT FRANCHISE

“HIGH SCHOOL REUNION”

Las Vegas, Nevada, High School Chosen for Season Three


Los Angeles, CA -- April 7, 2009 – TV Land announced today that it has picked up its successful reality series “High School Reunion” for a third season. Over 1 million people have been watching the current season, which airs its final episode on April 8. Now viewers can tune in as Las Vegas’ Chaparral High School’s Class of 1989 will experience a reunion like no other. Set on the garden isle of Kauai, the classmates of Chaparral -- some of whom haven’t seen each other in over twenty years -- will have the unique opportunity to finally settle a score, find new love or rekindle an old flame and reconnect during this luxurious getaway. “High School Reunion” is produced for TV Land by Mike Fleiss (“The Bachelor”) through his NEXT Entertainment production company in association with Warner Horizon Television. “High School Reunion” is set to debut its third season, with eight episodes, in the third quarter of 2009, on TV Land during TV Land PRIME, the network’s primetime destination block.

“We are so happy that ‘High School Reunion’ continues to resonate with our viewers and remains one of TV Land’s most popular original series,” states Larry W. Jones, president, TV Land. “Viewers can’t get enough of the drama and romance that comes when these classmates share their emotional and intimate stories from high school and everything else in between. The characters and storylines are not only entertaining, but the show is so compelling that it’s not surprising that our audience of 40-somethings has been glued to their screens.

TV LAND ANNOUNCES PRESENTERS AND ADDITIONAL
HONOREE SID AND MARTY KROFFT FOR THE “2009 TV LAND AWARDS”

Will Ferrell, Teri Hatcher, Amy Poehler, Jimmy Kimmel,
Jamie Lee Curtis and Dr. Phil Named as Presenters With More To Be Announced

Grammy® Winner Cyndi Lauper and Pop Icon David Cassidy
To Pay Tribute to The Kroffts


Los Angeles, CA - April 14, 2009 -- TV Land announced today that legendary producers Sid and Marty Krofft will receive the Pop Culture Award at the "2009 TV Land Awards," and Will Ferrell, star of the upcoming film Land of the Lost (Talladega Nights, Anchorman), Teri Hatcher (“Desperate Housewives”), Amy Poehler (“Saturday Night Live,” “Parks and Recreation” and Baby Mama), comedian and talk show host Jimmy Kimmel (“Jimmy Kimmel Live”), Jamie Lee Curtis (Freaky Friday, A Fish Called Wanda) and TV talk show host and psychologist Dr. Phil will be among the presenters at the evening’s celebration. Additionally, music stars Cyndi Lauper and David Cassidy will perform in the tribute to Sid and Marty Krofft. The two-hour show, hosted by Neil Patrick Harris (“How I Met Your Mother,” Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle and Assassins), will tape on Sunday, April 19th at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City and will air on TV Land during a special presentation of TV Land PRIME on Sunday, April 26th at 8PM ET/PT.

TV Land previously announced additional honorees for this year’s show including Don Rickles (Legend Award), Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Legacy of Laughter Award), “Married With Children” (Innovator Award), “ER,” (Icon Award), “M*A*S*H” (Impact Award), “Home Improvement” (Fan Favorite Award), “Magnum P.I.” (Hero Award), “Two and a Half Men” (Future Classic Award) and “Knots Landing” (30th Anniversary Award).

Media credentials for the TV Land Awards can be requested through tvlandpress.com.

Sid and Marty Krofft will be bestowed with the Pop Culture Award, which is presented to a producer whose body of work has crossed the line from ordinary to pop culture status.

After a background in puppeteering, vaudeville and the circus, Sid and Marty Krofft arrived in Hollywood to knock the cookie-cutter animation world of Saturday morning television upside down. Starting in 1969 with the innovative series “H.R. Pufnstuf,” they turned out a string of wild, vibrant, fast-paced children’s programs that captured the carefree spirit of the ‘70s while creating many pop culture moments. The Kroffts’ idea of children’s programming was always inventive and psychedelic -- infused with manic energy and wild campy humor. They expanded their horizons to create a whole new style of variety shows for adults that were fearless and funny. One of their memorable series was “Land of the Lost” which has been remade as a feature film starring Will Ferrell as Park Ranger Rick Marshall.
