What a difference a year makes. In 2012, the Newfronts were a mish mosh of original series announcements
that included the likes of top-name talent like Anthony Zuker and Jay-Z, lots of talk of device and
technology and a significant amount of “we’re better than TV”. Well, a year has gone by and it’s safe to
say that Yahoo!’s “Burning Love” (proven by the fact that it’s now being aired on E!) was the only true
success from 2012. Given the significant changes in direction, we can assume that most of the digital
networks figured out that they got it all wrong last year.
