    Each Of CBS's 18 Primetime Dramas And Comedies To Be Broadcast In
    Highest Definition Television Format
    Third Consecutive Season CBS Has Broadcast Majority Of Primetime
    Schedule In HD As Network Continues To Lead The Industry
    NEW YORK, Sept. 7, 2001 -- CBS Television, along with partners Zenith
    Electronics Corporation and Panasonic, announced today that it will
    offer all 18 of its primetime comedies and dramas in High Definition in
    the upcoming 2001-2002 television season. This is the third consecutive
    year CBS has broadcast the majority of its primetime schedule in HD, and
    the first time it has offered all of its scripted entertainment series
    in the HD digital format.
    Together with selected CBS SUNDAY MOVIES, weekday broadcasts of the
    leading daytime drama THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS, and CBS Sports'
    unprecedented HD schedule, CBS will provide an average of nearly 24
    hours of HD programming per week this fall.
    CBS is proud to be the first network to broadcast its full slate of
    primetime comedies and dramas in High Definition," said Leslie Moonves,
    President and Chief Executive Officer, CBS. "Add in THE YOUNG AND THE
    RESTLESS and college football, and it's all here, on CBS, in HD."
    "This alliance builds on CBS's pioneering role in HDTV programming and
    Zenith's HDTV technology leadership as developer of the U.S. digital
    television broadcast standard," said T.J. Lee, President and Chief
    Executive Officer of Zenith. "Sponsoring CBS HDTV programming
    represents a terrific opportunity to re-introduce Zenith to consumers
    and to drive home our 'Digitize the Experience' message."
    "Panasonic is delighted to be back with CBS for a second year helping to
    bring the power of HDTV programming to television homes across America,"
    said Don Iwatani, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Panasonic.
    "Viewers love HDTV and this new season of CBS programs will captivate
    millions more. Panasonic is ready to make consumers' digital dreams a
    reality with a full lineup of affordable high definition and other
    digital television products."

    Forty-one of CBS's owned and affiliated stations are currently
    broadcasting in digital, covering approximately 52% of the nation. By
    the end of the year, CBS expects to be transmitting digital programming
    across approximately 69 stations, reaching approximately 78% of the U.S.
    CBS began its commitment to digital programming in October 1998 with the
    High Definition broadcast of the John Glenn Space Shuttle Launch. The
    network has broadcast both the NCAA Mens Basketball Championship and the
    Masters in HD for the past two years. In addition, this weekend will
    mark the third consecutive year CBS has broadcast the US Open Tennis
    Championship final rounds in HD. And this past year, CBS presented
    Super Bowl XXXV and the AFC Playoffs in HD format.

    That's more good news. This week, (HDNET and now CBS line up), has been very encouraging.
    If only we hadn't lost MNF.
