Venue: Hammerstein Ballroom inside Manhattan Center on W. 34th St. near 8th Ave., the former home of TBS/TNT's big Upfront ceremony. Outside, the green-and-white marquee and wall frames highlighted new series coming to the service. Inside, attendees were served breakfast or served with a Variety cover story at their seats. Strips of flashing lights were constructed in the orchestra section, grabbing the attention of host/”Saturday Night Live” co-star Taran Killam. "How about this lighting scheme, huh?” he asked. “Like a friggin rock concert, except it's 9 in the morning and you're at work!" Grade: 3.5 Jacks
