TV executives aren't known to be beholden to TV critics. Plenty of reviewers' darlings - shows like Freaks and Geeks, or Terriers - have been killed off in their infancy. But this week executives are making their case to the critics. The Television Critics Association press tour is underway in Beverly Hills. It's a chance for all the major TV channels to win over critics with new ideas or explain their past mistakes. Tim Molloy, who has been covering the TCA press tour for The Wrap.com, joins Madeleine with an update.
