HBO's Tremé, IFC's Portlandia and NBC's Parks and Recreation also received awards. The Colbert Report was recognized for its Super PAC Segments, which offered viewers "cerebral comedy with inspired sight gags, interviews and preposterously funny monologues."
"The range of the Peabody Awards' search for excellence has never been wider or deeper than this year," said Horace Newcomb, director of the Peabody Awards.
The awards were announced Wednesday at the University of Georgia's Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication. They'll be distributed May 21 at a luncheon in New York.
