Covering the TV Critics Press Tour: Some Things Never Change



July 1997: After a New York Times Magazine profile painted an extensive, unflattering profile of young ABC Entertainment president Jamie Tarses, rumors swirled that the exec was about to be fired. So when ABC's portion of the TV Critics Assn. press tour rolled around, reporters pounced (above). That's the back of my head in the lower left.



July 2010: After ABC Entertainment Group president Steve McPherson left the network in a cloud of controversy, ABC Family topper Paul Lee (above) was named, just days before the TV Critics Assn. press tour, to take over the job. So when ABC's portion of the press tour rolled around, reporters pounced (above). That's the back of my head in the lower left.

The more things change... the more they don't.
