The Television Critics Association winter press tour is going on now in sunny L.A., and I am following it online from freezing Brooklyn. So far, it seems, the biggest news to emerge has been something that didn’t happen—cancer-sufferer Patrick Swayze was hospitalized and missed the session for A&E’s The Beast. But here are some bits and pieces of the news so far:
* More deadliest programming from Discovery.
* Richard Belzer pronounces NBC “dying.”
