Nickelodeons new series, The Simpsons, has won a record six Emmy Awards, bringing the total to 15.
Its star, John Krasinski, said the awards show was “huge” for the network.
“It was just like an instant hit,” he told The Hollywood Reporter.
“We’re very proud to be nominated for those six Emmys.”
Mr Krasins son, Matt, has also been nominated for an Emmy for his performance in the animated series, and the show is being filmed in Los Angeles for its premiere on February 10.
“I’m thrilled,” he said.
“You’ve got to give credit where credit is due.
There’s a reason why it’s a big deal.
It’s a testament to the talent that the network has, and it’s amazing that they’ve put together a really great show for the people to watch.”
The Simpsons is currently on Netflix.
“For a lot of us, it’s like family,” said Krasis father, John.
“And so it was a big, big deal for everyone to be part of it.”
The awards show has received mixed reviews from critics, who have pointed out the series was “too simplistic”, “boring” and “over-the-top”.
Critics also have criticised the series for being “too much about the Simpsons and less about the family”.
However, the show was nominated for the Emmys for the third time, and received nominations for outstanding comedy series and for best animated show.
