NBC surprised TV writers on Monday by putting disgraced NBC anchor Brian Williams into their “upfront” event for advertisers to stand with his successor Lester Holt, as well as Chuck Todd, Savannah Guthrie, Rachel Maddow, and others. Brian Steinberg of Variety gushed Williams has “worked diligently to bring back credibility,” and in the midst of chaos, “Williams provides a safe harbor, of sorts, using his finesse with repartee to pave the way for viewers to learn more about their world.”
