The Television Critics Association's 2013 summer press tour is now over, with the networks providing teasers, previews and spoilers for all our favorite shows, including new ones debuting in the fall. As part of this event, they held their annual TCA Awards, and the 2013 winners have now been announced.

Orphan Black is available on Amazon Prime.

When the nominations were unveiled back in June, The Americans and Breaking Bad led the pack with four and three nominations, respectively. Both came away as winners, with the hit AMC drama that's set this end this summer left with the top prize: Program of the Year. Game of Thrones won big on the drama side for Outstanding Achievement in Drama.

One of the categories resulted in a tie. For Outstanding Achievement in Comedy, both The Big Bang Theory and Parks and Recreation were recognized.

For reality TV, some big shows like The Voice, Survivor, The Amazing Race and The Glee Project were in the running, but it was Shark Tank that came out on top here, a show that's always been reliable in the ratings for the network considering it airs on Friday nights.

The Heritage Award goes to a show that has "culturally or socially impacted society," as noted in a press release. All in the Family beat out Lost, Saturday Night Live, Star Trek and Twin Peaks. And Barbara Walters, who has announced she's retiring next year, earned the Career Achievement Award.
