The Fan Favorite Award, selected each year by TV Land, honors shows that have "won the hearts of television viewers, with characters who became our friends, stories we could all relate to and irresistible laughs." Previous recipients include "Family Ties," "The Love Boat" and "Home Improvement," among others.
The TV Land Awards, which will air April 29, will also feature a performance from Aretha Franklin.
