What’s Hot on TV Tonight – Kelly Ripa Hosts TV Land Awards

Kelly Ripa follows in Regis Philbin’s shoes by being an all-around TV host. Tonight she hosts the TV Land Awards, and opens the show wearing the costumes of different memorable characters, picked out for her by Carson Kressley. I get most of the awards like “Innovator,” “Fan Favorite,” and “Pop Culture,” but I don’t get “Music Icon Award.” How does that translate to TV Land or even television? At any rate, it’s Aretha Franklin picking up that award. Catch up on your other favorite shows at TV-Links.
