Beverly Hills, CA -- National Geographic once again handily dominated the first 24 hours of the Summer 2017 Television Critics Association tour with presentations and events that make it a front-runner at this twice-yearly gathering of hundreds of television critics, reporters and bloggers. Coming off a record 17 Emmy nominations earlier this month (15 for Nat Geo, including 10 for its first scripted series Genius, and two for Nat Geo WILD), the company was in a celebratory mood, and it showed. In fact, when addressing TCA attendees National Geographic Global Networks CEO Courteney Monroe noted that the 15 nominations for National Geographic place it among the ten most-nominated networks this year, second only among basic cable networks to sibling network FX.
