RuPaul’s Drag Race (pictured) and Shark Tank are among this year’s Television Critics Association (TCA) awards nominees.

First-time nominee Drag Race, which recently wrapped up its sixth season on Viacom-owned net Logo, is the lone cable program nominated in the Outstanding Achievement in Reality Programming category. The World of Wonder-produced series will compete against long-running CBS franchises The Amazing Race and Survivor, NBC’s The Voice and ABC’s Shark Tank, the latter of which won last year.

Other unscripted nominees include Survivor and The Apprentice producer Mark Burnett, who is up for this year’s Career Achievement Award. The reality vet is nominated alongside actors William Shatner and Valerie Harper, Cheers and Taxi director-producer James Burrows, and former Tonight Show host Jay Leno.

Fox’s miniseries Cosmos is nominated in the Outstanding Achievement in News and Information category alongside CBS Sunday Morning, PBS’s ‘Frontline,’ Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and CBS’s 60 Minutes.

The 30th annual awards will honor programs that aired during the 2013-14 television season. The winners will be announced in Los Angeles on July 19 at a ceremony held during the TCA’s bi-annual conference.
