Read It Now: TV Guide Magazine's First-Ever Upfronts Special Edition
I'm really proud of the special New York Upfronts edition of TV Guide Magazine that we handed out and mailed last week to key TV programming and marketing executives, media buyers, advertisers and others attending this year's network upfront presentation. I can't remember the last time a consumer magazine put together a trade magazine issue (this was a large, tabloid-sized book roughly the size of The Hollywood Reporter). We wanted to use it as a reminder that as the nation's only magazine devoted to television, we also speak to the trade in addition to the consumer.
Inside we've got Matt Roush's picks for the 10 best TV moments of the season; the most extensive Top 100 season-to-date ratings chart you'll see anywhere (incorporating broadcast, pay cable, basic cable, PBS, more!), a Summer TV premieres schedule; tons of stories dissecting the state of the TV biz; and more.
Here's a link to a digital version of the magazine: http://tvguidemagazine.publ.com/Upfronts-2014.
