CBS, Norville Mark 20 Years on the 'Inside'

July 19, 2008 6:17 PM

Critics were shuffled from The CW's presentation midday Saturday to greet Deborah Norville, as CBS Television Distribution hosted a lunch in honor of "Inside Edition's" 20th anniversary.

Ms. Norville continues to remain popular with the army of press who filled the room at the Beverly Hilton.

"One of the reasons we've reached this milestone is that we've stayed in touch with the viewers," said Ms. Norville. "We're positioned to cover the things Americans care about."

Despite 20 years on the air, the syndicated newsmagazine continues to be entrenched atop the ratings, taking second among all newsmagazine shows.

Of course, success could have a price—or perhaps after 20 years on the air, there is little left to ask or challenge as critics basked in their post-lunch glow and asked few questions, wrapping the session quickly.
