Television Hall of Fame

Field review by the editors.

North Hollywood, California

Out of the way, in the Valley, over the mountains from Hollywood, this outdoor plaza is even hidden from the street. It honors TV's greatest stars, with a 27-foot-tall gold-plated Emmy statue/fountain as its centerpiece.

Highlights include life-size bronze statues of Johnny Carson, Lucille Ball, and Jack Benny, as well as busts, carved likenesses, bronze plaques, and smaller statues of celebrities such as Walt Disney, Jackie Gleason, Bill Cosby*, Jim Henson and The Muppets, Rod Serling, Mary Tyler Moore, and Walter Cronkite. New stars are added to the Hall of Fame every year, so the displays honoring them will follow.

Update: The Academy of Television Arts and Sciences announced in July 2015 that Bill Cosby's bust would not return when the plaza reopened after a years-long restoration, which it did in early 2017. The empty pedestal that supported his head has had its Cosby plaque removed.
