ABC’s upfront Tuesday afternoon was an upbeat affair – not all upfronts are – with shoutouts to breakout hit Scandal and its star, Kerry Washington; to late-night host Jimmy Kimmel; and to now destined-to-retire Barbara Walters.
Kimmel, as is traditional, did a few minutes' worth of jokes at the expense of the other networks (he referred to CBS as "smug @#%&!!!!s") and his own: He suggested that Splash, the diving-celeb reality show, should be replaced by one with an empty pool. To be called Splat.

Melissa McCarthy wants a second chance to make a good impression on Glenn Close.
The newly-minted Best Supporting Actress nominee joked that she'll be thinking more carefully about what to say to the Albert Nobbs star – a Best Actress nominee at this year's Oscars – should they cross paths again at the ceremony.
"I hope I can figure out something else to say to Glenn Close other than 'Holy s––– you're Glenn Close,' " McCarthy told PEOPLE after getting her Oscar news Tuesday morning. "I just think she makes beautiful, smart, perfect decisions in her characters and roles she plays. She looms very large to me."
The Bridesmaids star, who won an Emmy earlier this year for Mike & Molly, admits she was flustered when she first encountered Close at the Golden Globes but is planning ahead for Oscar night.

After working on Bridesmaids for "half a decade," Judd Apatow had every right to be proud that the movie he produced was nominated for a Golden Globe.
But despite calling the acknowledgment a "very exciting thrill," Apatow, 44, held back when it came to boasting about the feat to his family.
"Today was my daughter Maude's 14th birthday, so I didn't tell anyone in my family about the nomination," the doting dad told PEOPLE shortly after nominations were announced Thursday. "I didn't want to distract from our morning festivities. I thought it would be rude to make it all about me."
