With TV producers, executives, actors and agents descending on New York, here again is Deadline’s rundown of this year’s events, originally posted last week. There are a few changes from last year, like NBC’s upfront presentation returning to the Radio City Music Hall after giving Seth Meyers a lot of fodder with their Javits Center location last year “in the heart of New York’s historical Stabbing District,” as he put it. (NBC’s cable siblings are staying at the Javits for their event.)

Most faces are the same, some at new places — like Kevin Reilly presenting for Turner on Wednesday after years stumping for Fox on Mondays. And pack your pasties — Miley Cyrus will headline Adult Swim’s upfront party.

Here is a list of the upfront festivities, including 20-year-old traditions like Sunday midnight karaoke, WME dinner and CBS press breakfast (all times ET):
