It’s a problem. If you stream you have to buy their channel, which I didn’t. If you have one of the paid streaming channels like YouTube TV, only CW and CBS have mandatory commercials. They treat every show as if it is On Demand and everyone is treated the same. Other networks allow viewers to skip commercials.
I don’t have any streaming channels and probably wouldn’t pay for CBS All Access, either.
It only makes sense if you have no other options.
Yes, o matter how I try, I can’t get the numbers/cost to work.
Because it doesn’t. They are expensive when you start stacking services.
That’s what my calculator said!
I can tell just by looking, LOL. If it’s not my main service, Netflix or Prime, I’m not paying.
CBS announced a bunch of renewals today. These shows will all be back next season:
Still waiting for news on a few comedies:
Fam (could go either way)
Man with a Plan (ratings are fine, should be back)
Life in Pieces (ratings are ok, but it just started season 4)
Murphy Brown (low ratings, probably a goner)
The FBI spinoff is going to happen. CBS has announced FBI: Most Wanted has been picked up for next season. I think all of the actors who were in the FBI episode are involved: Julian McMahon, Kellan Lutz, Ana De La Garza.
Also of note, CBS has picked up new comedies starring Patricia Heaton (Carol's Second Act) and Pauley Perrette (Broke).
