Ripa, who hosted the event, kicked off the ceremony with a segment during which she did 13 costume changes - all channeling TV characters and stars through the years, including Lucille Ball, Elvira, Zoey Deschanel in "New Girl" and the Sue Sylvester character on "Glee."
Ripa said the Wonder Woman costume was "too flashy," then joked, "But let me wear this home for Mark Consuelos" (her husband).
Stylist and fashion guru Carson Kressley helped Ripa find the best look for her grand entrance through the ceiling.
Her choice? A Catwoman costume.
"Too sexy," she said. "It's perfect."
The ceremony honored the casts of "Laverne & Shirley," "Murphy Brown," "In Living Color," "One Day At a Time" and "Pee-wee's Playhouse."
The evening's music icon honoree Aretha Franklin sang at the show. Watch her performance below.
