Candice Bergen, Gene Roddenberry, and The Smothers Brothers are among those to be inducted into the TV Hall of Fame in January.
Bergen is best known for her role on the sitcom "Murphy Brown," which ran for ten years on CBS. Bergen won a record five Emmys for her portrayal of recovering alcoholic TV news reporter Murphy Brown. The show made headlines in 1992 when Vice President Dan Quayle criticized the fictional character for having a baby out of wedlock. Bergen most recently starred on "Boston Legal" as law partner Shirley Schmidt.
Roddenberry, who passed away in 1991, created "Star Trek" in 1964. The show didn't air until 1966, and only ran for three seasons on NBC, but has had a tremendous impact on popular culture.
The Smothers Brothers had a ground-breaking variety show on CBS in the 1960s, and their criticism of the Vietnam War eventually led to their cancellation in 1969. The brothers have performed together for more than 50 years.
The TV Hall of Fame will also induct legendary "Saturday Night Live" announcer Don Pardo, "The Price is Right" creator Bob Stewart, and art director Charles Lisanby.
