The people have spoken! America's favorite TV stars, personalities and shows took home crystallized People's Choice Awards on Wed., Jan. 11, which aired on CBS. Although it was a night honoring what voters designated to be the best of movies, music and television, the small screen certainly took center stage, thanks to host Kaley Cuoco of "The Big Bang Theory."

There was a TV sketch segment featuring Cuoco's cast in the opening scene; then another from Jane Lynch, the women behind track-suit-sporting, mud-slinging Sue Sylvester on "Glee"; and the entire Pawnee "Parks and Recreation" team also showed off their talents. And though they brought the laughs to the largely yawn-worthy telecast, it was mostly other shows that took home the awards.

See all of the TV nominees and winners below.

She added, "I'm an only child and now I have 11 other siblings." But that wasn't Michele's only dedication.
