Question: Love your column and hope you could shed some light on an issue for me. As I understand it, TV shows/actors submit one episode of what they feel is their best work (that season) for Emmy consideration. Is this true? If so, don't you think the criteria should require a greater sample size since one episode, no matter the quality, does not necessarily tell the story of an entire season? —Charles

When the Fox network burst on the scene back in 1986, it changed the broadcast map with its bold shows and brash style. But the TV landscape and the way we consume the increasing tide of product (on cable, online and On Demand) continues to evolve, so the network's entertainment president Kevin Reilly put on his Professor Television cap to kick off Fox's day at the summer TCA press tour on Thursday with a long soliloquy, or was it a filibuster, rattling off statistics to show that network TV is far from dead. Promising (not for the first time) to schedule and develop shows year round with fewer "fallow" periods of repeats, while changing up the way this new wave of "event" series is being programmed — most notably, launching the 12-hour 24 reboot next May, with the M. Night Shyamalan miniseries Wayward Pines to follow in July — Reilly declared, "The one-size-fits-all business is over."
