“The Dr. Oz Show” received the award for informative talk show, with Steve Harvey named best informative talk show host for “Steve.”

ABC’s “General Hospital” and CBS’ “The Young and the Restless” each won two awards, including best actress Eileen Davidson and supporting actress Camryn Grimes for “Y&R.”
