Critic's Notebook: NBC at TCA

The Event

There's event TV, and then there's NBC's The Event. Which had better be eventful, for NBC's sake.

You can tell a lot about a network's hope for a show from the way it's launched during the TCA press tour. For NBC, once again in a "rebuilding" year (as the execs put it) after last year's prime-time Jay Leno debacle, the highest expectations are pinned on ... read more

Keck's Exclusives: Jennifer Love Hewitt to Guest on Law & Order: SVU

Jennifer Love Hewitt

"In our third hour, airing September 29, Jennifer will be playing a woman named Vicki who has been raped multiple times and is afraid to leave her house," Law & Order: SVU executive producer Neal Baer tells me exclusively. "One of the reasons we wanted to do this episode is because it addresses Mariska Hargitay's passion for rape kits, which can help gather evidence to convict the rapists.

ABC's This Week Goes Global with Christiane Amanpour

Christiane Amanpour

During more than two decades as a globe-trotting correspondent for CNN, Christiane Amanpour was often asked why she rarely smiles on camera. "Well, that's because you often see me covering genocide, civil war and things like that," she would answer. Don't expect her demeanor to change much when she takes the anchor chair at ABC's political roundtable program This Week on Sunday (August 1, 9am/8c)... read more
