News Outlets Prep for Surprises at This Year’s Unpredictable Political Conventions

13 July 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

On the penultimate night of the Republican National Convention in 2012, TLC’s “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” drew an audience greater than any individual network’s coverage of the Gop gathering.

This embarrassing testament to voter apathy was hardly a surprise: Political conventions have long been carefully stage-managed coronations — choreographed infomercials at which crowd reaction is about as spontaneous as a sitcom’s in-studio audience.

But this year’s gatherings promise a twist: There’s sure to be news, particularly at the Republican National Convention, July 18-21 in Cleveland, and likely at the Democratic gathering the following week, July 25-28 in Philadelphia.

As they always have, the cable news networks will air nonstop coverage of the proceedings, this year hoping to replicate the record interest drummed up by some of the current cycle’s debates and forums.

ABC, CBS and NBC each will spend an hour of primetime on each night of both parties’ conventions — an hour »

TV Review: ‘Little Big Shots’

4 March 2016 7:30 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Bill Cosby’s name is tarnished these days, but it’s hard to watch “Little Big Shots” – a new NBC series hosted by Steve Harvey – without thinking of him. That’s because Harvey basically channels Cosby’s version of the venerable TV format “Kids Say the Darndest Things” in an unscripted program that weds those attributes with “America’s Got Talent.” Culling participants from YouTube videos and tailored to the generation weaned on those vids, think of “Little Big Shots” as a reality show that’s intended to make viewers go “Aww,” which is certainly preferable to “Eww.”

Thankfully, NBC has stripped any competitive element from this talent showcase, so the kids are just being brought out to demonstrate what they can do – and perhaps make other parents a trifle envious – not to win money. As a bonus, that eliminates any chance of Harvey replicating his infamous pageant performance and »
