The TV Land Awards was an American television awards ceremony that generally commemorated shows now off the air, rather than in current production as with awards such as the Emmys. It was presented in a manner that spoofs other entertainment award ceremonies. Created by Executive Producer Michael Levitt, the awards were hosted and broadcast by the TV Land network from 2003-12.

Awards were given in various categories (which changed from year to year) with input from visitors to TV Land's website who voted for their favorite choices. Awards were given to both individual actors/actresses and to entire television series. The 10th Annual TV Land Awards aired on April 29, 2012.[1]

In March 2013, it was announced that there would be no TV Land Awards for 2013.[2] A network spokesman said, "We love the TV Land Awards and think there is great value in the franchise, but we will not be producing the show this spring.” As of January 2014, there has been no word on whether the Awards will be brought back this year.
