TV Academy Honors tonight

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 fifth annual ceremony, scheduled for tonight at the Beverly Hills Hotel and hosted by Dana Delany, will toast seven programs from the past year that explored such weighty topics as breast cancer (Lifetime’s “Five”), sports-related head injuries (“Harry’s Law”) and the effectiveness of the civil- justice system (HBO’s “Hot Coffee”). 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. …
