WEST WING REJECTS HONOR
The West Wing now has more room on its mantle for Emmys. John Wells, executive producer of the hit NBC drama, has given back the Family Television Award presented to the show earlier this month after series star Allison Janney's comments in support of the actors' strike were deleted from the telecast, Variety reports. "The West Wing is not interested in an award from an organization that supports censorship of free speech," Wells said in a statement. The awards are handed out by the Association of National Advertisers, one of the groups involved in the dispute.
