• Bob Newhart to Receive Icon Award at Critics’ Choice Television Awards


    LOS ANGELES (CNS) – Comic and long-time small-screen presence Bob Newhart will receive an Icon Award during the third annual Critics’ Choice Television Awards ceremony, the Broadcast Television Journalists Association announced today.

    “Bob Newhart has entertained us for more than five decades, not only as a fixture on our TV screens, but as someone who has placed an indelible stamp on the entertainment business,” according to Joey Berlin, president of the BTJA. “He is truly a legend, and we’re thrilled that he will be the recipient of the 2013 Critics’ Choice Television Icon Award.

    “His humor has endured and he continues to surprise us, which is no doubt why he is also a nominee this year for guest performer in a comedy series in addition to being our Icon honoree.”

    Newhart, with his deadpan comic delivery, became a star playing psychiatrist Bob Hartley on “The Bob Newhart Show” in the 1970s. He returned to television in 1982 as an innkeeper in “Newhart.” That series ended in 1990 with a sequence some critics have called one of the most memorable finales in television history, with Newhart’s character being knocked unconscious and waking up next to his “The Bob Newhart Show” co-star, Suzanne Pleshette.

    The BTJA also announced its honorees as Most Exciting New Series — “The Bridge,” “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “Masters of Sex,” “The Michael J. Fox Show,” “Ray Donovan” and “Under the Dome.”

    The awards will be presented Monday at the Beverly Hilton, with the ceremony streamed live on Ustream.
