TV Land announced today that legendary comedians Mel Brooks and Carl Reiner; the cast of Everybody Loves Raymond including Ray Romano, Brad Garrett, Patricia Heaton, Doris Roberts, Madylin Sweeten, Sawyer Sweeten and Sullivan Sweeten; Charlie's Angels stars Cheryl Ladd, Jaclyn Smith and Glee cast members Jane Lynch, Dianna Agron, Jayma Mays, Jessalyn Gilsig and Kevin McHale are among the honorees at this year's 8th Annual TV Land Awards with more talent to be announced soon.
The entire cast of Everybody Loves Raymond will reunite for the first time since the death of fellow cast member Peter Boyle to receive the Impact Award at this year's show. Everybody Loves Raymond ran on CBS for nine successful seasons and joins the TV Land line-up this week (on Thursday, March 18). This year's Future Classic Award will be bestowed upon Fox's runaway hit, Glee. Previous future classic recipients include Desperate Housewives, Grey's Anatomy and Arrested Development. Mel Brooks (Blazing Saddles) and Carl Reiner (The Dick Van Dyke Show, Ocean's Eleven) -- the Renaissance Men of Comedy who started out on Your Show of Shows -- will each receive the Legend Award. This marks the first time that this award will be given to two recipients. Stars of the 1970's TV phenomenon Charlie's Angels will be on hand to receive the Pop Culture Award and to pay tribute to their cast member Farrah Fawcett, who passed away of cancer in June 2009.
Now in its eighth year, the TV Land Awards pays tribute to classic and contemporary luminaries of television, music and movies. The ninety-minute telecast will feature exhilarating musical performances and will reunite some of the most iconic celebrity TV casts. The show premieres on Sunday, April 25 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.
