BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — There are six new members of the Television Academy Hall of Fame.

At a ceremony Tuesday night in Beverly Hills, the academy inducted Jay Leno, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, media baron Rupert Murdoch, writer-producer David E. Kelley and former ABC executive Brandon Stoddard.

Sound pioneer Ray Dolby was inducted posthumously, with his wife and son accepting the honor.

Leno got a spirited introduction from Bill Maher, who said his friend didn't deserve the heat he took over Conan O'Brien's short-lived tenure as "Tonight Show" host.

Murdoch, the chairman of News Corp. and 21st Century Fox, noted he was being honored on his 83rd birthday — a coincidence that he called particularly annoying because he doesn't like to look back.
