Peabody Awards Honor Truthiness


The Peabody Awards–given each year for excellence in electronic media–have a great track record for honoring quality TV that sometimes isn’t the most visible. Previous honorees include fare as diverse as The Office, Battlestar Galactica, Good Eats, and Viva Blackpool (leading, sadly, to the debacle that was Viva Laughlin). This year’s winners include 30 Rock, Dexter, and Mad Men on the scripted side and Planet Earth, Project Runway, and recent Oscar-winner Taxi to the Dark Side on the non-fiction end of things, as well as excellent news programming (a full list of winners can be found here). Bridging those worlds is an award for The Colbert Report, which I’m sure Stephen will feature tonight in his continuing segment, “Who’s Honoring Me Now?”


One thought on “Peabody Awards Honor Truthiness

  1. I guess they ran out of legitimately good shows; their esteemed track record has obviously hit a dead-end. I mean, c’mon; 30 Rock? They’re really going to honor the worst show in television history? Is this supposed to be some kind of sick joke?
