Junket Junkie

Mark McGuire files his first dispatch from the Television Critics Association press tour today. Since it's July, that means it's time for network execs to stand up in front of America's TV critics and explain their Fall schedules. You have to feel for them ---imagine having to pitch Father of the Pride to a bunch of jaded media writers, munching shrimp and tossing out embarrassing question. That's why Jeff Zucker gets the big bucks.
The TU is again posting Mark's press tour blog in their online edition. There haven't been any entries since last Thursday; I'm sure this has nothing to do with all the booze and food heaped on the touristas ---it's more likely he can't find his laptop under all the swag.
