“The TV Land Award Show has become one of the must-see shows in Hollywood so we decided to supersize the venue to accommodate the growing demand for tickets,” stated Sal Maniaci, Senior Vice President, Development and Original Programming, TV Land. “We are thrilled that the Gibson Amphitheatre will serve as the home of this year’s show because the Universal Studio lot is the backdrop for so many iconic television shows and movies from the past and present — precisely the type of rich entertainment we honor each year.”
Throughout the ninety minute telecast, TV Land will honor legendary artists from both television and movies, feature exhilarating music as well as never-before-seen reunions of some of the most iconic celebrity casts from TV and movies, and of course, the fan favorite — the perennial TV Land Awards parody that always highlights the year’s pop culture moments .
