It is a later start than in past years and there are fewer services participating than ever before. Nevertheless, the 2019 Upfront/NewFronts event season is now underway, and MediaVillage has revved up its popular annual feature: In-depth reviews of individual Upfront/NewFront presentations, broken out by category, with each scored on a 0-to-5 Jacks scale. This time around, with Nickelodeon pulling out of the leadoff spot the Viacom-owned network enjoyed the last few years, Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network pulled in Wednesday morning as the opening attractions. This presentation was conducted one week before both networks were on track to transition from 21st Century-Fox ownership to “New Fox” infrastructure, emerging from the merger of 21st Century-Fox with the Walt Disney Company.
