NBC Boss on Big Fall, Revolution's Hiatus, and Revamping Up All Night and Smash

The Voice

"What a difference a year makes," NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt said during his opening remarks at the Television Critics Association winter previews Sunday.

Of course, he was referring to NBC's huge comeback this fall. On the strength of Sunday Night Football, a fall cycle of The Voice and new drama hit Revolution, NBC ended the fall as the No. 1 broadcast network. In fact, Greenblatt said the network was up 24 percent in the adults-18-to-49 demographic and 19 percent in total viewers; NBC was also the only network to improve in both measures this fall.

TV Reacts to Newtown: Is It Time To Tone Down The Violence?

Newtown tragedy

Soon after news broke of the horrific December 14 elementary-school shootings in Newtown, Conn., the broadcast and cable networks scoured their schedules for anything that might be deemed offensive or inappropriate in light of the massacre.

Mockingbird Lane's Bryan Fuller: Don't Count Out a Series Order Just Yet

Mockingbird Lane

Bryan Fuller isn't giving up on Mockingbird Lane. Now that NBC plans to air the pilot as a special later this month, it appeared that the network had thrown in the towel on its Munsters redux. But Fuller—who's in Canada overseeing NBC's upcoming take on Hannibal—tells TV Guide Magazine that he remains bullish on Mockingbird, and thinks Halloween is a perfect time to get viewers on board.

"Such a different show merits a different way of getting it out to the audience," he says. "There's been tremendous support to get it out there and get people to see it, and have them make up their own minds," he says.

Fuller's modern take on The Munsters—starring Jerry O'Connell and Portia de Rossi as Herman and Lily Munster, and Eddie Izzard as Grandpa—wasn't ordered to series but instead will air as a one-hour special on Oct. 26 at 8/7c. That could be the end of the long-percolating project, which had been in the works for years... read more
