Pasadena, CA: NBCUniversal yesterday kicked off the Winter 2019 Television Critics Association tour, once again (to the consternation of TCA members) choosing to not include an opening session with one or more top network executives. Panels with past NBC network chiefs -- from Brandon Tartikoff to Jeff Zucker to Bob Greenblatt -- were always highlights of TCA tours, often establishing the narrative for the network’s day. Now, the “narrative” is left to the press, which may or may not work to the company’s benefit, as the day is a mash-up of new and returning NBC series and one or two series from a few of NBCU’s cable networks. No narratives for them, either.
