TV Academy Honors tonight

Five
The fifth annual TV Academy Honors — honoring seven programs of substance from the past year — will take place tonight at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Shawna Malcom previewed the event for Variety:

The Emmys might be more high profile, but it’s another Academy of Television Arts & Sciences-backed kudofest that’s proving how powerful the medium can really be.

Since its inception in 2008, the Television Academy Honors has celebrated “television with a conscience,” programs that not only entertain but also shine a spotlight on socially relevant issues.

The syndicated “Dr. Oz Show,” TNT’s “Men of a Certain Age,” FX’s “Rescue Me,” and PBS’ “Women, War & Peace” round out this year’s slate.

“I joke that it’s when television uses its power to do good over evil,” says Delany, who’s emceeing the event for the fourth straight year. …
