Kim and John talk about the highs and lows of the television upfronts. They go through some of the new shows presented to ad buyers by the four big networks -- NBC, FOX, ABC and CBS -- and reflect on the big bet they're all waging on comedy.

Meanwhile, CBS sailed through the upfronts offering a few new items including a drama with Dennis Quaid.
