Colorado Viewers Miss Six Minutes Of AFC Title Game, Learn About Santa

Somehow this flew under the radar all week, but it turns out Broncos fans in Colorado Springs missed much of the first quarter during Sunday's AFC Championship game due to technical difficulties on KKTV—during which Tom Brady was frozen on their screens for nearly six minutes.

CBS Sports Promo Features Georgetown Fan Flipping The Bird

CBS ran this promo for a CBS Sports Network broadcast of Elon-Georgetown leading into the halftime show during Arizona-Michigan. As you can see, right there in the middle is a backwards-hatted Georgetown fan emphatically giving someone the two-for-Tuesday salute (and providing some lip-reading material as well). » 12/14/13 1:13pm 12/14/13 1:13pm

Why The NFL Flexed Bears-Eagles Over Patriots-Ravens

At first glance, it was a surprise. The NFL wants America to see McCown-Foles over Brady-Flacco? But the league has a good reason for flexing Bears-Eagles to Sunday Night Football for Week 16: the freedom to choose the perfect Week 17 game.

An Emotional Shannon Sharpe Rips The Dolphins Locker Room

On CBS's pregame show, Shannon Sharpe had some very strong words for the Dolphins, less about their handling of the Incognito-Martin fallout, and more about a locker room that let things get to the point where a white player can call a teammate a "half-nigger" and it's supposed to be taken in good humor. » 11/11/13 1:38pm 11/11/13 1:38pm

Did CBS Spike An NFL Storyline On The Good Wife?

Two weeks ago, the co-creators of the CBS show, The Good Wife, sat on a New Yorker Festival panel called "Television and Politics." At one point, they were asked if they envied the freedom granted their cable counterparts.

Dear CBS, Please Stop Using Yellow In Your Ticker [Update]

I've been bugged by this since around 3:55, and I'm not the only one—we've gotten emails and tweets from people complaining about CBS's ticker, which uses a striking yellow "Final" box to indicate which games are over.
