I especially remember the very last NFL telecast for CBS. Summerall waxed nostalgic, going on and on for what seemed like several minutes about leaving CBS and all the memories and finished his spiel by saying "...and I'm going to miss saying 'Stay tuned for 60 Minutes and Murder, She Wrote after that". I loved every second of his little soliloquy -- a piece of television history that would never be repeated.

I don't know if that little speech can be found on YouTube or not but I'm gonna go look right now!
I remember once when MSW was preempted: it was the Eagles-Raiders game in 1986. It wasn't Summerall doing it though, it was Gary Bender and Hank Stram doing that game. I remember as the game entered the OT period, Gary Bender was doing the 60 Minutes promo, followed by the one for the movie...and I knew that MSW wasn't going to be on that night because it listed only 60 Minutes and the movie.

Pat Sajak wanted his talk show to be like Jack Paar's old show. However, CBS made it too much like Carson's.

The way CBS handled "Unsolved Mysteries" on it's schedule is worthy of a mess-up mention.

"UM" was picked up by CBS after NBC had canceled it despite rising ratings in the 1996-1997 TV Season.

CBS debuted "UM" on a Thursday Night at 10 PM in November 1997 with hardly any promotion.

Then after airing just one episode, CBS put the series on hiatus until April 1998.

When the show resumed airing in April 1998, CBS aired the show at 9 PM. For the first time in its 10 year history, the show did not air at 8 PM. Which would have been fine if it's lead-in had strong ratings and was stable in it's timeslot.

The perfect lead-ins show were canceled two years prior "Rescue 911" and "Murder She Wrote"

UM's lead in for April 1998 were "Kids Say the Darndest Things" and "Candid Camera" This two shows were mid-season fillers that were used to try to patch up the colossal BUST known as "The CBS Friday Night Block Party."

If CBS was DEAD SET on airing UM at 9 PM, they should have used "48 Hours" or "60 Minutes" as a lead in. UM is the kind of show that I feel is a MAIN EVENT. An event in which you should have NO LEAD-IN show but if you do make it something related to the UM format.

The poor ratings of UM in 1998 reflected the poor 9 PM Friday timeslot. Miraculously, CBS renewed the show for another season in the Spring of 1999, but once again CBS repeated the 9 PM Friday timeslot with the pathetic Kids Say/Candid Camera lead in.

By the time CBS lost the National Football Conference package to Fox in 1993, they were a shear and utter mess. To put things into proper perspective, they barely had any hit sitcoms in the 1980s other than Newhart, Kate & Allie and Designing Women. And after most of the prime time soaps (i.e. Dallas, Knots Landing, and Falcon Crest) were dead or had reached zombie status, they thought The Golden Palace (the spin-off/continuation of The Golden Girls sans Bea Arthur) would revitalize Friday night and head off a two-hour block of sitcoms that was basically like TGIF for grown-ups, even moving DW there and hammering another nail in its coffin in the process. There's also the fact that Family Matters was a top-rated show at the time. But it still lasted longer than The Bradys (Sherwood Schwartz biting off more than he could chew) did in that time slot, just two years earlier.

With all of that being said, losing the NFL just flat out exposed how bad the programming was for CBS at the time as well. While in the meantime, there were some very good shows like Chicago Hope, The Nanny, Walker, Texas Ranger, Picket Fences and Touched by an Angel as well as Murphy Brown and Murder, She Wrote, they were all slated towards older viewers.

It does make me wonder; if CBS hadn't lost the National Football Conference package to Fox in 1993, how much shape they would have been in?

The cancellation of 2 Broke Girls.

CBS gives 2BG a one-hour season premiere last October. Then, once Superior Donuts premieres in February after having been ordered to series immediately after the season begins, CBS demotes 2BG from the 9:00 PM anchor slot to the 9:30 PM hammock slot to make room for SD (I don't understand why it couldn't have been the other way around). 2BG's season finale airs in mid-April,and its showrunner promises us that it wouldn't be the last episode. And then 2BG is abruptly cancelled when negotiations for a potential final season broke down between CBS and Warner Bros. TV, and then Warner Bros. TV all of a sudden decided not to shop 2BG around to other outlets. And unlike Two and a Half Men and Mike & Molly (which were also produced by WBTV), 2 Broke Girls didn't even get a proper wrap-up episode,which is just plain unfair. Fans of 2BG will be left hanging forever after its sixth-season finale.

If the cancellation of 2 Broke Girls were a very real possibility beforehand, then WBTV should have thought about moving the sitcom to TBS for future seasons if CBS can't air them.

Also, CBS ended Mike & Molly in 2015 after the network opted not to renew its licensing agreement with Warner Bros. TV after its sixth season. Will the same thing happen with Mom after its sixth season (in 2018-19) ends? Three of the new sitcoms that will premiere on CBS during the 2017-18 season come from Warner Bros. TV: Me, Myself and I, By the Book, and The Big Bang Theory's spinoff/prequel Young Sheldon. I think the cycle of ending a WBTV-produced CBS sitcom after six seasons will eventually just repeat itself with those shows, regardless of whether they have a proper send-off or not.

Per what I said about The Prudential College Football Report w/Jim Nantz and how it used not only a version of the theme song of The NCAA Today (this for the first two seasons [1985 and '86]), but also today's CBS college football music (this not only for the last two seasons w/Jim Nantz [1987 and '88], and one w/Greg Gumbel [1989]), here's a mini-vid I made showing the evolution of the billboards of that CBS college football studio halftime segment (Don Robertson was the announcer on all of these, BTW). What I'd like to know is, which music did/do you like better?

Their 1990-91 campaign slogan ad they called a Dream Season was actually a Nightmare Season for them.

1990 was the beginning of their massive slide in the sports department when they lost longtime stalwart Brent Musberger to ABC Sports (following the April Fools' Day telecast of the NBA Playoffs). They would eventually lose the rights to the NBA over to NBC Sports after their telecast of the 1990 NBA Finals. Then they severely overpaid for MLB and bombed after 3 years, only for FOX to snatch it up and air MLB ever since.

They also lost or was about to lose longtime stalwart shows in Newhart, Falcon Crest and Dallas, the latter would enter its final season in that Fall of 1990. They picked up the rights to The Hogan Family and paired it up with another Miller-Boyett show in The Family Man and neither struck gold for them, thanks to the terrible moves they made with both shows, especially the former.

Their CBS News post-Walter Cronkite era wasn't very kind to them, especially during Dan Rather's tenure with the CBS Evening News in particular.

During Dan Rather's time with The CBS Evening News, it slid to 3rd Place behind The NBC Nightly News w/ Tom Brokaw and ABC World Evening News Tonight w/ the late Peter Jennings where it stayed for years. Outside of 60 Minutes since, CBS was the weakest of the original Big 3 Networks in the News Department. Also, the George W. Bush Documents controversy also caused Dan Rather to get sacked as anchor of the CBS Evening News and from his post on 60 Minutes Two and CBS as a whole.
1990 also saw the birth of CBS KID TV on Saturday Mornings 4 consecutive seasons and the 2 flagship shows for that block were Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Garfield & Friends

For those that don't know, The Family Man was a Sitcom Produced by Miller-Boyett the Producers of such shows as Happy Days, Laverne & Shirley, Perfect Strangers, Full House, Family Matters and Step By Step

The title role to The Family Man was played by CBS Veteran Gregory Harrison best known for his dramatic roles in CBS Shows such as the 70's Cult Classic Sci-Fi Drama Series Logan's Run (based on the 1976 Film of the same name Starring Michael York, Jenny Agutter & ex-Charlie's Angel in the late Farrah Fawcett) Trapper John, M.D. as Dr. George Alonzo Gates and he even starred in the Final Season of another LORIMAR Series Falcon Crest

This was Gregory Harrison's 1st starring role in a Television Sitcom, the series also stars Scott Weinger of Full House and the voice of Disney's Aladdin, the late Ed Winter of M*A*S*H, the late Al Molinaro of The Odd Couple and Happy Days and Gail Edwards of the 80's series It's a Living

Harrison would also host the Reality Drama Series True Detectives a series from the producer of Rescue 911

The Family Man finished #113 out of 141 prime time shows for the 1990-91 season Nielsen rankings.

Not only that, but putting The Family Man and The Hogan Family to Saturday Nights was a HUGE Mess-Up by the networks

I personally didn't care for The Hogan Family, I liked it when it was Valerie, but when they killed off her character, Valerie sued LORIMAR for over $1.75 Million Dollars and won her case

But that's another story on another thread

But also, speaking of CBS News being in 3rd place in the News Dept., CBS News FIRED Kathleen Sullivan (formally of ABC News World News This Morning) from CBS This Morning and they replaced her with Future CNN News Anchor Paula Zhan and that was the same year that NBC News paired Bryant Gumbel w/Deborah Norville (formally of NBC NEWS SUNRISE and now currently of Inside Edition) on The TODAY Show and both CBS This Morning and The TODAY Show suffered ratings @ the hands of Good Morning America (which celebrated their 15th Anniversary)

Joan Lunden (who celebrated her 10th Anniversary) and Charles Gibson (who replaced longtime anchor and former actor 6'5" David Hartman) were a tough team to beat

and Lunden & Gibson kicked everyone's butt in the ratings including the team of Gumbel & Norville and Smith & Zhan and GMA would be the #1 Morning News Show in america from 1990-1995

Now, other than CBS Daytime being #1 thanks in part to Family Feud w/the late Ray Combs, The Price is Right w/Bob Barker, The Young & the Restless, The Bold & the Beautiful, As the World Turns and Guiding Light, CBS was in 3rd place in both the News Dept. and their Prime Time Line-Up

Their only Hit Shows on that network are their Sunday Night Juggernauts in 60 Minutes and Prime Time's #1 Drama Murder, She Wrote as well as Murphy Brown and Designing Women which were Top 10 Hits in the Nielsen Ratings and Rescue 911 was also in the Nielsen Ratings Top 30

Well CBS had good reason to fire her. They caught her insulting their network on the air! She didn't realize the mic was on she called CBS the cheap broadcasting system on the air!

I don't blame her for calling it that. Because CBS cheapened the hell out of daytime Wheel of Fortune when they bought it from NBC in 1989.

That I agree with

I mean, Bob Goen was a good host for Daytime Wheel and Pat Sajak also hosted the show in the same studio CBS Television City in HOLLYWOOD and he was even doin' his Late Night Talk Show

When I watched the Daytime Wheel, I saw they had spaces like $50 $75 $100 $125 $150 $175 and when I think of that, I'm like what the heck?

and it also made Bob Goen look bad, I'll bet Sajak was probably happy that he didn't have to host Daytime Wheel with those kinda payoffs

Vanna White was still busy doin' both Daytime Wheel and Nighttime Wheel

cancelling The Jeffersons without letting the cast and crew know. Sherman Hemsley had to read it in the newspaper.
