‘Friday’ takes a top TCA Award

NBC also nabs trophies for 'Heroes,' 'Office'

Emmy may have overlooked “Friday Night Lights,” but the nation’s TV critics still have plenty of love for the NBC drama.

Skein took home the honor of best new drama at Saturday’s TV Critics Assn. Awards. It was one of four awards crix gave to the Peacock, which dominated the kudos.

Net also won the award for program of the year (“Heroes”), comedy (“The Office,” winning its second consecutive TCA Award) and individual achievement in comedy (Alec Baldwin for “30 Rock”).

Crix also corrected a percieved Emmy slight by tapping “Dexter” star Michael C. Hall for individual drama performance.

HBO’s “The Sopranos” was one of the night’s other big winners, taking the prize for best drama while also picking up the org’s Heritage Award, which recognizes skeins with a lasting cultural or social impact.

Also snagging two awards: Discovery’s “Planet Earth,” which won for achievement in news and information and in the movie/mini/specials slot.

In a bit of a surprise (at least to folks at ABC Family), the TV Critics Assn. gave the award for achievement in children’s programming to the net’s teen- and young adult-targeted sudser “Kyle XY.”

Mary Tyler Moore was honored with the org’s career achievement award.

Kudos were handed out Saturday at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
