Do Drama Series have table reads?

I was watching The View and Tom Selleck said sometimes you don't even see other cast members for a month....I thought they all sit around and read the show on the first day....I like to think of Jessica Lange and Sarah Paulson reading the script, joking around, and then maybe having a bagel with some orange cream cheese.

Some do some don't.

Dramas have a 8 to 10 day shooting schedule. Many times they do a quick table read. Sometimes even shooting part of the episode in the morning, then breaking for a quick table read.

If they don't do a table read, it helps explain why the shows are so shitty.

Every episode they have a Sunday Dinner scene with the entire cast. So unsure how he could say that.

"Scandal" has table reads and the cast ALWAYS comment on their table reads on Twitter. It makes fans look forward to the new episode. The cast reactions to the script are priceless.
