Television critics honor 'Glee!'

"Glee" was named outstanding program of the year, by TV critics -- boxing out other worthies like "Breaking Bad" or "Lost."

 But then they didn't have singing.

Or Kristin Chenoweth.

Or Idina Menzel.

So that must've tipped the balance.

Meanwhile, James Garner got TCA's career achievement award. A perfect choice.

Here's the list. And by the way, what's good about the TCA awards -- aside from the fact that critics hash this out violently (albeit violently on-line) for weeks, is that they are highly reflective of ultimate Emmy choices.

"Glee," for example, will easily sweep just about everything in late August.

2010 TCA Award recipients are as follows:
Program of the year:  “Glee” (FOX)
