AAF-Suncoast to present Fall TV preview 10/6.

Following up on the previous post, the AAF-Suncoast will present its Fall TV preview on October 6.

This event represents the return of a popular annual program for the Ad Fed, with Representatives from WEDU 3, ABC 7, NBC 8, CBS 10, FOX 13, Blab TV and Bright House planning to attend. They’ll be bringing along clips from last season’s hottest programs and trailers of this season’s most talked about new shows. Plenty of traditional network TV stuff – cop shows, such as the return of Hawaii Five-O to CBS, NBC’s Law & Order Los Angeles and Blue Bloods with Tom Selleck, and new prime time comedies, like Mike and Molly and Outsourced. Several interesting new shows debut this fall from the cable networks, and we know they've really become a force to be reckoned with on the strength of major cable hits like AMC's Mad Men and HBO's The Sopranos.

I’ve always enjoyed the Fall TV Previews when we did them “back in the day” and I’m glad that Alex Stafford, Ad Fed Programs Chair has decided to go ahead with this one. Alex is getting plenty of help from my good friend Linda Gross, a well-known media buyer and recent recipient of the Ad Fed’s Silver Medal Award.

Strong early interest in this event is another indication that traditional media certainly is not dead.
