ABC's Modern Family, Fox's Glee and HBO's In Treatment were among Wednesday's 36 Peabody Award winners, which included the usual strong array of public-affairs programming.

Other notable winners include HBO's The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency, CBS' The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson (featuring a guest appearance by Archbishop Desmond Tutu) and two reports by Steve Kroft, "Sabotaging the System" and "The Cost of Dying," which aired on CBS' 60 Minutes
Thrilla in Manila, an HBO documentary about the last of three legendary heavyweight bouts between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier that pulled no punches about their rivalry, also was cited.
