NBC shows dominate TCA Awards

NBC programs and personalities walked away with the most honors at the ninth annual Television Critics Assn. Awards, including comedy and drama series kudos to “Seinfeld” and “I’ll Fly Away.”

The Peacock web can actually claim five of the eight trophies, including special of the year recognition for “Mike Tyson: Fallen Champ,” the career achievement award to Bob Hope — who’s had a 54-year affiliation with NBC — and Bob Costas’ sports prize.

HBO, fresh off its big Emmy nomination take, was also recognized for “program of the year” with its movie “Barbarians at the Gate,” which got nine Emmy nods.

The PBS documentary series “Frontline” was honored in the news & information category, while Linda Ellerbee won an award for children’s programming for her work on cabler Nickelodeon.

Awards, voted on by 150 members of the TCA, were presented Friday night at the Universal Hilton and telecast for the first time on E! Entertainment Television over the weekend.
