Upfronts Upshot

Hosted by

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. Going into the multi-day, multi-billion-dollar market, NBC and ABC had the most to prove. FOX was challenged to demonstrate that X-Factor could be the next American Idol and that a new show with Kevin Bacon could replace House. Meanwhile, CBS sailed through the upfronts offering a few new items including a drama with Dennis Quaid.
