Yes, there’s still a Fall TV season, and yes, it’s now well under way. Broadcast TV got a little pep in its step last year thanks to two freshman sitcom phenoms: ABC’s “Abbott Elementary” and CBS’ “Ghosts.” When asked to tout their new wares, several network execs instead opted to shine more spotlight on returning shows they hope to keep buzzing as sophomore sensations.
It’s time for Variety’s annual fall check-in with network heads across broadcast, cable and streaming — although how to do that proves tricky these days. Many execs’ gigs transcend platforms, after all — like Disney’s Craig Erwich, who serves as entertainment president for both ABC and Hulu, or the NBCUniversal duo of Susan Rovner and Frances Berwick, whose domain stretches across programming for broadcast, network and streaming.
But they all are toiling away in this new landscape, and all facing the same issues. For one, have we reached content saturation point? Is that even a thing? Has peak TV peaked? No! Possibly! Yes! Or as AMC Networks’ Dan McDermott might say, Who cares?! “Peak TV is just a phrase that was thrown out in 2015,” he says. “It’s an irrelevant and meaningless term.”
As for rival shows that execs want to steal, “House of the Dragon” and “Abbott Elementary” lead the pack. Here’s this year’s Variety Network Presidents Fall TV survey, answered by execs from Netflix, ABC/Hulu, NBC, CBS, Fox, The CW, Showtime, FX, AMC, Discovery, OWN, Paramount Plus, Amazon and more.
