Chuck Todd Heads to Broadway

By A.J. Katz 

After winning the 2015-2016 broadcast season in the key A25-54 demo, Meet the Press fell to This Week with George Stephanopoulos in the opening week of 2016-2017. The Peacock’s Sunday public affairs show will look to rebound this coming Sunday armed with a new, November-focused promo: “If it’s the Countdown to November, and if it’s Sunday, it’s Meet the Press.” The new spot begins airing today.

But that’s not all. MTP will have a promotion featured on a large digital Times Square billboard through Oct. 14, appearing on Saturday and Sunday for the next two weekends. So if you want to say hello to Chuck Todd, but can’t make your way to D.C., stop by Broadway between 45th and 46th Streets in New York and he’ll be there to greet you … sort of.

Here’s a look at the new spot:
