      • I agree. 🙂

        CBS kept making real hits for longer than the other networks, but stopped about when Les moved upstairs.

        He needs to make all programming decisions or find someone who can before CBS sinks like the rest of the other networks.

        Louis, Thursdays are shocking to me. NBC used to have 5 shows around 20 million viewers not that long ago.

        It was “America’s Most-Watched Night of Television”, with “Must-See TV”.

        NBC turned it to “Must-Avoid TV”…

  1. CBS does a stunt that works (to a degree) with BBT and Great Indoors kills the rest of the night dead…

    CBS needs to get rid of that dud post-haste and hire someone who can pick shows if Les no longer can.
