Upfronts 2017: The Best, Worst, and Weirdest Moments of TV’s Marathon Week

19 May 2017 10:36 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Television’s marathon week in Manhattan came to a close just as the clock struck midnight Friday morning at the CW’s annual private party, which moved to a new location in midtown for 2017. The soirée, per usual, was filled with relieved advertisers and exhausted entertainment execs who could finally celebrate the end of Upfronts.

NBC kicked off the four-day run, followed by Fox, ABC, Turner, CBS, and the CW. Some of the presentations were great, while others could have used some improvement. Fox may want to invest in a new late-night franchise just to have a host to trot out every year at this time. Stephen Colbert, James Corden, Seth Meyers, and Jimmy Kimmel (in absentia) were among the highlights of the CBS, NBC, and ABC gatherings.

Here is the good, the bad, and the worst of Upfronts 2017:

Latest Destiny 2 Gameplay Showcases Sequel’s First New Strike, Inverted Spire

19 May 2017 8:43 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Bungie spared no expense in revealing the first gameplay for Destiny 2 yesterday and, like you, we’re still sifting through and digesting the huge amount of info that it dumped on us during the event. Everything, from new subclasses for the shooter’s Warlock, Titan and Hunter classes, to punchy new weaponry, fantastical planets and dangerous new enemies were showcased in full force during the presentation’s duration, but that’s not all. Not even close.

Strikes, a type of activity that are best described as pseudo-dungeons, have always been considered a core pillar of Destiny‘s gameplay, so it comes as little surprise that they’re set to return in Destiny 2, though it looks as if Bungie’s given them a drastic upgrade for the sequel. The first brand new Strike to be revealed, Inverted Spire, was playable during yesterday’s event.
