NBC rounded out this summer’s Television Critics Assn. gathering July 24 with a carnival-themed all-star party at the Ritz-Carlton Huntington Hotel’s Horseshoe Garden.
Party was also the last hurrah for the nation’s TV crix in Pasadena. The semi-annual tour moves to Hollywood’s Renaissance Hotel in January.
NBC stars making the trek to the Ritz included “The West Wing’s” John Spencer, Richard Schiff and Bradley Whitford; the cast of “Scrubs”; “Fear Factor” host Joe Rogan; and most of the “Saturday Night Live” cast, including head writer/Weekend Update anchor Tina Fey.
Also spotted: NBC execs including entertainment prexy Jeff Zucker and NBC Studios topper Ted Harbert and producers Dick Wolf, David Kohan, Max Mutchnick, Jon Avnet, Graham Yost, Jonathan Prince and Dick Clark.
Party was crashed by at least one rival network star: 11-year-old Grant Rosenmeyer, who stars as “Oliver Beene” on Fox. Rosenmeyer, who was staying at the hotel, couldn’t resist checking out the festivities.
