NBC got their chance at the dog and pony show, also known as the Upfronts.
Advertisers packed into Radio City Music Hall, some hoping that NBC would tell them what the future of lying Anchor Brian Williams will be at the network.
Those people were dispointed.
NBC barely said anything about BriLie or the rest of the news division for that matter.
The network touted out country music star Dolly Parton and talked breathlessly about their primetime shows. But, they stayed clear of news.
While NBC’s news shows don’t typically hog much of the limelight at the entertainment upfronts, they usually aren’t virtually ignored.
With the exception of a brief clip showing “Today” anchors as part of a sizzle-reel kicking off the 90-minute presentation — and a second brief mention of the highly profitable morning show by NBCUniversal ad sales boss Linda Yaccarino — the news division was a blank slate.
NBC tried to tap dance around the news omission.
The network insisted the news division was not dissed at Monday’s upfront. News, they said, is never included and no one should be surprised by the absence of an announcement on the sticky topic of Williams’ return.
Now, it looks like Brian Williams isn't the only liar at NBC.
