I recognize that the TV networks and their affiliated production houses or studios are not exclusively vertical. A show produced by Universal might find its way onto CBS, for example, even though NBC and Universal are part of the same conglomerate. There was even a case some years back where a show on NBC carried “CBS Productions” as one of its production company logos.
But Disney is much more of a “brand” than the other studios, and ever since Disney bought ABC I’ve thought of ABC as the broadcast home of Disney-branded product (less so for the other Disney-owned imprints, like Touchstone).
So I was startled to see that on Thanksgiving night, the broadcast premiere of Disney/Pixar’s “The Incredibles” will be on … NBC.
It’s a great movie, no matter what network airs it.
