It’s been a long time since CBS was cool, and the network keeps pulling back all its hits from those days to regain its former shine. Thankfully the tried-and-true can often work. Nobody with any common sense has the first clue why the network thinks it can charge $6-10 per month for access to its low-grade content.
Personally, I’ve completely stopped paying any attention to anything CBS does. They’re a channel for the elderly, and their business model is retarded, considering its shows and content library are nothing when compared to the deep archives of streaming services like Netflix and Hulu, free services like Crackle, and premium networks like HBO and Showtime. CBS can’t even compete with NBC, ABC, or Fox.
Still, if you’re determined to support the eye network with its mediocre programming, here’s the best of what they offer that’s not cheap, stale, reality TV rebakes. It is mostly remakes and spin-offs though.
