Throughout its ten hilarious seasons, "The Love Boat" was nominated for five Emmy(R) Awards and eight Golden Globe(R) Awards including Best TV Series - Musical/Comedy and two nominations for Best Performance by an Actor to Gavin MacLeod. Previous Fan Favorite Award honorees include "Home Improvement" and Lindsey Wagner of "The Bionic Woman" who accepted the Fan Favorite Award for her "bionic speed."

Now in its eighth year, the "TV Land Awards" pays tribute to classic and contemporary luminaries of television, music and movies. The ninety-minute telecast will feature exhilarating musical performances and will reunite some of the most iconic celebrity TV casts.
