THE 2-WEEK EVENT KICKS-OFF FROM BEVERLY HILLS TOMORROW
California here I am. If my math is correct, this is my 14th consecutive trip to The Television Critics Association (TCA) Summer Press Tour, which is an insanely satisfying two-week gathering where critics and bloggers from across the country gather to get the true scoop on what lies ahead next season on the small screen. All the news you need to know…including odds of survival for each of the 21 new series…will be available here, at TV Media Insights.
PBS kicks-off the summer festivities at the famed Beverly Hilton Hotel tomorrow, with Fox first up among the broadcast networks on Monday, July 23. NBC arrives on Tuesday and stays through Wednesday the 25th; followed by ABC on Thursday and Friday; FX on Saturday; CBS on Sunday; and the combination of The CW and Showtime on Monday, July 30. A variety of additional cable networks (Current TV, Ovation, BBC America, HBO, GMC, Starz, The Weather Channel, Discovery, National Geographic Channels and ESPN) will present from Wednesday, August 1 through Friday, August 3.
Coverage of The Summer Press Tour will officially begin here this weekend with breaking news, notable observations and updated video. We will also keep you abreast, of course, on updated ratings and programming and scheduling news, but our daily Trivia Challenge will take a breather until Monday, August 6. Sometimes you need to re-energize your trivia battery!
