"The Sun Always Shines On TV": A Playlist for "The TV Land Awards"

Posted: Updated:

In so much as I was ever raised, I was raised on television. So I once again had a total blast working on "The TV Land Awards " that airs tonight on TV Land at 9 p.m./8 CST. Beautifully hosted by Kelly Ripa -- who I first fell in love with on TV -- this year's show features cast reunions from the stars of Murphy Brown, Laverne & Shirley, In Living Color and One Day At A Time. Pee Wee Herman is also honored, as is The Queen of Soul herself, Aretha Franklin, who performs wonderfully and, yes, soulfully. In honor of this grand annual TV event that celebrates TV so well, here's my playlist for tonight's great TV party. As always please add your own tubular tracks below.
