Wayne Brady won for Outstanding Game Show Host (“Let’s Make a Deal”), Steve Harvey won again for Outstanding Talk Show/Informative Host (“Steve”), and the women of syndicated talk show “The Real” were named Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show Hosts, while “The Talk” (CBS) and “Dr. Oz,” (syndication), were cited for Outstanding Talk/Entertainment and Outstanding Talk/Informative.

“The Price Is Right” was named as Outstanding Game Show, ABC’s “Good Morning America” repeated as Outstanding Morning Program, and the syndicated “Judge Mathis” won for Outstanding Legal/Courtroom Program.
