Beverly Hills, CA – TNT and TBS President Kevin Reilly sent a shockwave through the International Ballroom at the Beverly Hilton Hotel the other day, where members of the Television Critics Association had assembled for a morning of press conferences from a number of Turner networks. As always, he was direct and to the point. “Two years from now, you’re still going to be covering as many shows, I’m sorry to say, but you will be covering, for sure, [fewer] entities. That contraction will start rolling out over the next couple of years. We will be here, thankfully, and we’re going to continue to make this kind of television, even as the definition of television opens up and gets redefined, which we will be a part of. So we will be radically different in two years than we are sitting here today, which is pretty different than we were two years ago. Even with these shows, we’re not done. We’re really just beginning.”
