TV One Gets 'Afterparty' Started at TCA

July 8, 2008 10:47 AM

Barack Obama dominated the discussion during the kickoff TV One panel at the Summer 2008 Television Critics Association press tour.

Critics grilled the panel on TV One’s “Democratic National Convention Afterparty.” TV One is not covering the Republican National Convention and said during the panel that if Hillary Clinton were the Democratic nominee, TV One wouldn’t be covering that, either.

When asked if any black Republicans would be upset about the coverage decision, “Afterparty” contributor Sheryl Underwood said, “I speak for all eight of us. We are not slighted.”
