Inducted into the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences' Hall of Fame in 1998.
Silverman had a heart attack in 1996. He told the LOS ANGELES TIMES, July 28, 1996: "[It] woke me up a little bit. This is just a job; it's not a religious calling."
"The top management [at CBS] was never satisfied. If I went to [CBS chair William] Paley and said 'We have nine of the top 10 shows in the daytime,' he would say, 'God, that 10th show. Isn't there anything you can do about that 10th show?' Good was not good enough. Great was not good enough." --Silverman to LOS ANGELES TIMES, July 28, 1996
