NBC led the way with four Television Critics Association awards including Outstanding New Program for My Name is Earl Sunday night, while ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy grabbed Program of the Year honors.
In a ceremony held at the Ritz Carlton Huntington Hotel in Pasadena, Calif., NBC’s four awards bested the two apiece for ABC and PBS and the one apiece for Fox and Disney.
Notable were awards for Lost and House’s Hugh Laurie after both were snubbed by the recent Emmy nominations. Lost won for Outstanding Achievement in Drama while Laurie took the award for Individual Achievement in Drama.
