CBS stays the course

and manages to get in a few barbs about the competition as the network builds on its already formidable schedule with just five

St. Petersburg Times, 20-05-2004

NEW YORK - Even before the David Letterman joke comparing Apprentice star Donald Trump to a monkey and the three-song set by the Who, it was obvious CBS was on a roll...

Still, Moonves is an old school TV executive: brashly confident and capable of engaging surprises - as evidenced by the unexpected closing performance by the Who, which roared through three of their classic songs used on CSI: Won't Get Fooled Again, Who Are You and Teenage Wasteland.

As stars Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey took their final bows it was obvious: This is a network that knows how entertain. And after three days of slogging through off-balance presentations on dubious new series lineups, it's also obvious that kind of talent is in surprisingly short supply around Hollywood these days.
