Everybody Loves Raymond

The hit sitcom “Everybody Loves Raymond” will be recognized by the NAB Broadcasting Hall of Fame as the 2014 television inductee.

The CBS series will be honored at the Television Luncheon on April 7 in Las Vegas, and cast members Ray Romano, Patricia Heaton, Doris Roberts, Brad Garrett and Monica Horan as well as the show’s creator, Phil Rosenthal, are expected to attend the induction ceremony.

“‘Everybody Loves Raymond’ is a great example of high quality broadcast programming that provides family entertainment, resonates with audiences of all ages, and above all, makes us laugh,” NAB president and CEO Gordon Smith said in a statement. “I look forward to meeting the cast members and writers and recognizing the show’s amazing success at this year’s NAB Show.”

The family comedy, created by Rosenthal and executive-produced by Rosenthal, Romano, Stu Smiley and Rory Rosegarten, debuted in 1996 and ran for nine seasons until its final episode aired in May 2005. The show won multiple Emmys and a Screen Actors Guild award.

Some of the NAB Broadcasting Hall of Fame’s previous television inductees include Betty White, Garry Marshall, “The Tonight Show” and “Saturday Night Live.”
