Glee Nabs Peabody

CBS' Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Fox's Glee, and ABC's Modern Family have each garnered a George Foster Peabody Award, an annual recognition of excellence in international television and film. The honor is just the icing on the cake for Glee, whose ratings have made it one of Fox's most successful scripted debuts in years. The musically inclined show is a critical darling as well, alongside Modern Family, which the Peabody board lauded for its "quirky, contemporary twists in family ties." According to the Peabody board, "the Scottish-born Ferguson [of The Late Late Show] has made late-night television safe again for ideas."
