Part of it is CBS as well. Some contractual bull**** with Fremantle. CBS won't let Buzzr air it because they do not want old ones to air and compare them to Drew's version and they're too afraid of overexposure of the series.

Is that a legit reason? If it is, that should be rectified ASAP. I think that's petty if it's true. Look in the mirror if you think Carey's TPIR is failing. What's with the gimmicks they have? Every show is a theme show.

Why did you feel the need to post this if it was going to be censored anyway? By the way, I did not believe that statement about the Bob Barker of "The Price is Right".

Bob Barker treated Rod Roddy like crap in his final years

This appears to be a rude accusation.

Cancelling Crazy Like A Fox. Yanking around Crazy Like A Fox around the schedule. It was highly rated on Sundays and the perfect companion for Murder, She Wrote. Also a pleasant alternative to movies. We did not need a THIRD network movie in that time-slot. CLAF was fun and could've easily had a decent run of 3+ seasons at least.

Not merging with Disney in the mid-90s. Made a hell of a lot of sense for Disney to buy CBS instead of ABC.

CBS has always been the king of the networks and while they have a variety of different shows ranging from game shows talk shows news programs and dramas sitcoms have always been CBS's strongest links and it's no secret that sitcoms like Mom and The Big Bang Theory are monster hits in TV but in my mind the biggest mistake CBS did in history was in 1989 was debut a sitcom named What's Alan Watching? that was gonna be a hit but due to only one episode airing of the whole series What's Alan Watching? was cancelled with no reason given and CBS could've had a hit sitcom on their hands and another sitcom that I fell in love with from the very first time I saw the preview of it "probably because my school was learning about colonial times and Thanksgiving at the time" was a sitcom called Thanks that was destined to be a huge hit but was cancelled after a few episodes in the 90's and I think that really hurt CBS terribly in the 90's. Another thing that was wrong of CBS to do was end Walker Texas Ranger in 2001 and then making TV movies of Walker Texas Ranger and if CBS was smart they could've made more episodes of Walker Texas Ranger and let the show end in 2002. With reality shows in it's infancy and beginning a new chapter in TV Survivor really proved that CBS was on a roll and because of Survivor's popularity this marked the start of a new lineup for Thursday Nights starting with the debut of CSI and if you look at the complete picture CSI became the top show for CBS in ratings after Survivor but none of the other spin-offs in the CSI family did well except for CSI Miami which got strong ratings then soon after Survivor's success Big Brother and The Amazing Race debuted and they are still going strong but when Mark Burnett decided to create a reality show called Pirate Master the show was gonna be a success but Pirate Master was cancelled for no reason explained. I also think why the reason Robin Williams's sitcom The Crazy Ones was cancelled by CBS is they were going to make Robin Williams a bigger star in TV and when The Crazy Ones was cancelled I think it caused Robin Williams a lot of stress and I think that's why he died after The Crazy Ones was cancelled. Another mistake CBS did was cancel the game show Million Dollar Password instead of having it renewed for another season and it seemed that the show was made as a way to promote CBS stars and mark Regis Philbin's comeback to the game show world. And why didn't CBS cancel The Price Is Right when Bob Barker retired instead of having Drew Carey host it? Because it seems that when CBS has Drew Carey or Wayne Brady as their top game show hosts they would always guest star on CBS sitcoms sometimes. But CBS will still be the king of sitcoms for all time for years to come

CSI: NY was successful, it lasted 9 seasons and almost 200 episodes.

Yesa, I agree about crazy ones. Also, they made a mistake cancelling Diagnosis murder and airing a couple TV movies after that
