The last upfront was from Fox. This has been the winner of the 18-49 demographic for three seasons running thanks to American Idol. It tries to branch out from the umbrella of AI and introduced some older skewing programming including the promising “Back to You” which stars Kelsey Grammer and Patricia Heaton. Virginia Heffernan of the New York Times says “Back to You” looks good.
One thing Virginia notes is that Fox toned down the glitz from last year.
Just as he did with The CW earlier today, Michael Ausiello of TV Guide did a running blog of the Fox Upfronts. One of the gems Ausiello finds is that House gets the coveted post-Super Bowl slot in February.
Ausiello caught up with Veronica Mars Exec. Producer Rob Thomas. Needless to say, he’s very sad.
Cynthia Littleton of Variety has her take on the Fox fall sked.
I’ll have a final post on the Upfronts on Friday and that will do it.
