^He may had not liked some of them (most likely the ones who sued him), but I do not believe he "hated a lot of them". I also do not believe he would want certain editions of the program banned from being seen again because of some of these "models" (I had always preferred to call them "helpers").

Hiring Phyllis George for CBS Morning News and passing over qualified candidates in Jane Wallace and Meredith Vierira. Kurtis and George didn't have chemistry on the air and there was a big debacle in her interview with a false accuser of rape and her accusee

Betty White did in 2009. Over an Elephant. He wanted that elephant moved near the San Andreas fault line so it could have fun with the earthquakes while Betty believed in building a bigger cage for it.

This actually established a pattern at CBS, where the news division would do the best it could to turn out a program worthy of the memories of Edward R. Murow and Walter Cronkite with what it had to work with, and then, periodically, some higher-up who seemed to have never met a woman but had been told that they class up a joint, and also that women watch TV and like to watch shows featuring members of their own gender, would put out a press release announcing that they were bringing a woman on board. Although CBS has had access to a fair number of intelligent, ambitious, and talented TV journalists who happened to be women, the woman hired to make the morning shows more like Today have tended to be women who have distinguished themselves in other fields. For instance, the biggest "get" in the time slot's history since Sally Quinn was Phyllis George, who joined the show in 1985, at a time when her greatest accomplishments included winning the Miss America pageant and not throwing up while sitting next to Jimmy the Greek. George's tenure is best remembered for her interview with Gary Dotson, a man who had just been released from prison after serving six years on the basis of a false charge of rape, and Cathleen Crowell, the woman who had accused him when she was sixteen and then recanted. The atmosphere in that room must have been pretty tense, but George smiled all the way through the interview and seemed to get through it without anything too embarrassing or awkward. An entire nation sighed in relief. Then George leaned in and, her smile going nuclear, said to Dotson and Crowell, "How about a hug?"



On the day that Phyllis George was practicing relationship counseling between two people whose most fervent shared hope must have been that neither of them would ever be reminded again of the other's existence, the show was called CBS Morning News.
By the time Gumbel took the reins, it was called The Early Show, the title that it stuck with up to the end of last week. (Gumbel left in 2002. After he was gone, the show settled into a not unpleasant, snoozy groove, practically making a solemn vow that it would only make news if someone who had just been voted off Survivor showed up for his interview drunk.) As of this past Monday, when it kicked off its latest reboot, it is called CBS This Morning. But whatever you call it, it always feels like the latest tinkering with the same basic commodity, with the same built-in contradiction: the new division wants to do solid, hard-news show, so they can hold their heads high when they're with their drinking buddies, and the people who sign their checks want a show that can compete with the happy-happy-joy-joy shows on NBC and ABC. The desire to find a compromise is the same impulse that led to the hiring of Katie Couric to anchor the CBS Evening News. If that show was a disappointment for all involved, it's not so much because of anything Couric did wrong but because nobody could figure out a way to make a network evening news broadcast relevant in the era of the Internet and 24-hour cable news channels. (Though it might have helped if CBS News weren't ridiculously underfunded, which means that it might have helped if Couric had told the network, "That's okay, I don't really need fifteen million dollars a year to live on, why don't you take most of that and plow it into correspondents and research teams and overseas bureaus—which I guess means there was something she could have done.)

-replacing WKRP with House Calls. 9:30 was the perfect time slot for it on Monday's to boot. CBS should have kept WKRP on Monday's.

- passing over bachelor at law a show with Harold Gould and John Ritter in what would have been his first breakout role. For a show called Roll Out. Roll out lasted thirteen weeks and was replaced by Good Times. John Ritter eventually got his breakout role as Jack Tripper in Three's Company

Cancelling Evening Shade when it was still in the top 30. The ugliness surrounding the Burt Reynolds-Loni Anderson divorce caused both their shows to be cancelled that year. Over on NBC, Nurses actually built-on its Empty Nest lead-in that season.

Not picking up Beanes of Boston, the 1979 US adaptation of Are You Being Served. Powerhouse producer Garry Marshall was behind it and it had a strong cast. AYBS co-creator Jeremy Lloyd was involved with the project and they adapted the classic German-day episode for the pilot.

AYBS is my favorite brit-com, hands down. 'Allo 'Allo and Faulty Towers are pretty good too. My uncle and aunt love Keeping Up Appearances but I never cared for that.

Charlotte Rae as Miss Slocombe and John Hillerman as Peacock! Mr Humphries was comparably weak but I've recently got into Laugh-In and I think Alan Sues would've grown in the role. Of course Lorna Patterson was lovely on the eyes as the equivalent of Miss Brahms. It could've been a classic!

What's more passing over Loni Anderson for Marilu Henner. Loni Anderson attempted to co star alongside him but they chose Marilu Henner instead.
