Call it whatever you want, just don't put Lori from Walking Dead anywhere near it.
Jeez, The X Factor did some serious damage.
Looks like The Firm is on the chopping block this season.
Awake follows detective Michael Britten (Jason Isaacs) as he copes with a car accident that either killed his wife or his son. See, he's living in two very different realities, one where his son Rex (Dylan Minnette) survived and one where the wife Hannah (Laura Allen) did, and he's not entirely sure which is real, so as he doses off each night, he goes from one world to the next and people in both are convinced that he's crazy and/or dreaming.
So this network upfront actually broke some news, albeit unsurprising news that no one really cared about, but news nonetheless. Towards the end of the very lengthy two hour presentation, Donald Trump came out to announce that he was going to continue making money on The Celebrity Apprentice and not take a run at the presidency. He made it sound like he was doing us a favor, but I cover entertainment television, so having him stick around on reality TV isn't really helping me at all.
Aside from that, the rest of the presentation was fairly typical, and filled with all the NBC executives reminding us as frequently as possible that The Voice is a big success. I tried keeping count of how often they mentioned the show's name, but they worked it in so seamlessly to nearly every segment that it was almost impossible. And just when I thought they couldn't mention it one more time, they had Christina Aguilera and Cee-Lo come out at the end of the presentation to sing. Fortunately, I was already heading out the door at that point.
