The upfronts serve as a scorecard for the major agencies’ television departments. Here is our count for agency packages on the 39 new scripted primetime series ordered by the broadcast networks for the 2012/2013 season. Most of the agency totals include shared packages. Obviously, this is a very narrow snapshot of the TV agency landscape by omitting unscripted shows, returning series, and cable. We will start to expand our scorecard into those areas beginning next year.
