TV Press Tour–It’s No Picnic!

TV Guide’s Michael Ausiello really captures the absurdity that is the TV Press Tour. What’s more newsworthy than learning that James Woods just made a lot of cash–and not at the track? Or that CBS thinks putting CSI up against Grey’s Anatomy might get a little bloody–in a land without TiVo.

CBS threw a big shindig at the Rose Bowl (kicking off the new season–get it?), but the the weary reporters who’d already been through the NCTA part of the tour were still complaining about the lousy food. Cold ham sandwiches, cold chicken salad, cold turkey sandwiches–one jaded journo muttered that even San Quentin had hamburger day.
