The Television Critics Association Press Tour occurs twice a year, once in the summer and once in the winter. The bi-annual event currently spans over two weeks and consists of a variety of panels held by networks and streaming platforms. Basically, from what I understand, it’s a bunch of TV critics sitting in hotel ballrooms learning about all the new and returning shows for the current TV season.
While that sounds terribly tedious for them, it makes for some pretty entertaining and informative tweets for TV fans like us. Here’s who you should be following on Twitter to keep up with all the latest news and random observations about the current crop of TV shows:
