    I thought this was an interesting article. It doesn't mention what I think is still a gem among TV news shows in 60 Minutes, or how Scott Pelley has been a great fit on the nightly news, but I think those two things fit well into the story's theme.

    I thought this was about CBS and its post-Sheen Two and a Half Men lineup. In these tough economic times, it is heartening to see a solid chap like Sheen land on his feet again with a new network gig...........

    The biggest strength CBS has is....it's strength. They can cut loose a show that is doing pretty well if it makes more sense to bring in a new show that is cheaper. They've shown that no one show or actor is crucial to their success, keeping production costs down.

    I find it more sad than anything.

    A network gives viewers The Office, Parks and Rec, Community, Friday Night Lights and the best news anchor working in Brian Williams and is a failure.

    The other reheats the same tired recipe in a can over and over again and is king.

    You can't argue with success, but you can argue that network television won't survive much longer once this generation of older people passes.
