Winner 1973 | ABC Entertainment, CBS, NBC Television

To the three commercial national television networks, a joint Peabody Award for their outstanding contributions to entertainment through an exceptional year of televised drama. In a year dominated by private detectives, public cops, and the soft diet of endless situation comedies, it is a pleasure to note a few of the exceptions which demonstrate that the commercial networks are indeed capable of traveling first class when the occasion arises. In the field of television entertainment these three, ABC Entertainment, CBS, and NBC Television, are honored for these contributions to the viewing pleasure of mature audiences: The ABC Theatre productions of The Glass Menagerie and Pueblo, the CBS Playhouse 90 production of Catholics, and, NBC Television’s production of “The Red Pony.
