FX Networks on Wednesday received the Paley Center for Media's Innovation & Excellence award during an event that attracted industry executives and network talent. Shawn Ryan, who created FX's first breakout hit, "The Shield," praised FX Networks CEO John Landgraf for putting good content ahead of business concerns. "FX, under his leadership, doesn't just have a brain. It has a heart and soul and for that reason he is my nominee to be the first-ever mayor of television," Ryan said. "I hope you get that job one day."
