One of America's most popular broadcast TV networks, CBS has been entertaining viewers for generations now. Thanks to its irresistible mix of entertainment, news, and sports programming it is an everyday go-to channel watched in over 114 million homes across the US. CBS Primetime shows have a “habit” of dominating primetime ratings—shows like NCIS, 60 Minutes and The Equalizer, have been estimated to draw in about 8-9 million viewers on average. No surprise then, that for the second time in three seasons, CBS became the exclusive home to Super Bowl LV in 2021. And, carries the reputation to air mega blockbuster events such as the Grammys and Meghan Markel’s interview with Oprah.

A Little about the CBS Network

Founded in 1927, CBS (Columbia Broadcasting System) is ranked as one of America’s oldest radio and broadcast TV networks—which eventually became one of the Big Three. Following the sale of its radio division in 2017, CBS no longer operates or owns any of the radio stations directly. While the CBS TV network is now owned by ViacomCBS through its CBS Entertainment Group division. The 2019 reunion between CBS and Viacom resulted in a combined library of over 140,000 TV episodes, and 36,000 film titles including the Star Trek and Mission Impossible franchises. The reunification was perceived to allow the 2 media giants to invest in creation of TV content and films, as well as in the thriving business of streaming video.

As a major commercial broadcast TV network, CBS reaches approximately 97% pay-tv households in the U.S., and since 2014, CBS programming has also been available via a subscription video-on-demand service—CBS All Access—rebranded as Paramount following the 2019 merger between CBS and Viacom.
