Here's a look at how more than two dozen 2018 Upfront and NewFront presentations by broadcasters, cable networks and digital content providers were ranked in order of effectiveness by Simon Applebaum and Ed Martin.  First, as always, credit must be given to everyone involved in all of these events for putting them together.  It is a titanic amount of work, executed under great pressure and with a lot at stake.  Congratulations to all!
