The article focuses on the sensory marketing devised by TBS chief marketing officer Jeff Gregor to market its new late-night show "Frank TV." Gregor has featured the campaign with heavy radio, online and television schedules, and an aggressive appearance slate aimed at pushing master impressionist Frank Caliendo. It impliedly emphasizes that "Frank TV" is likewise the highest priority of TBS for 2007, just like Tyler Perry's "House of Payne," "The Bill Engvall Show" and "My Boys."
