Doug and I left the convention center around 11:30 to meet friends for lunch at the Omni (far right). Traffic was still light at the entrance gate to the Gaslamp District; work crews were finishing up offsite promotions for NBC's HEROES Reborn and Blindspot.
An NBC executive remarked, "Comic-Con is the Super Bowl of television marketing."
So, HEROES Reborn - scheduled to debut Thursday, September 24th at 8 p.m. - had offsite promotion as well as in the convention center.
NBC also promoted Blindspot at Tin Fish, a popular restaurant just across the train tracks from the convention center. The amnesia ridden cop drama, starring Thor's Jaime Alexander, premieres Monday, September 21st; last year NBC promoted The Blacklist at Tin Fish.
McCormick & Schmick's in the Omni is a great place to have lunch with friends before SDCC officially opens with Preview Night.
