In true Television Critics Assn. tradition, Fox brought its talent to the Santa Monica Pier on Monday night when Homer Simpson toys were as valuable as Emmys. Talent from the freshman shows, like Adrianne Palicki of “Lone Star” and Martha Plimpton of “Raising Hope,” were seen mingling, but biggest screams from the fans were for the “Glee” cast.
Sony Pictures TV took the unusual step of throwing a party Tuesday at Bar210 for TV crix — something the studios normally don’t do at the press tour. But Sony had plenty to showcase, such as new ABC laffer “Mr. Sunshine” with Matthew Perry. “Community” exec producer Dan Harmon talked about season two of his comedy; and producer Jamie Tarses reminisced about past press tours with reporters.
