Tassler Responds to the Press

After talking reporters through its fall 2007 schedule Wednesday morning, CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler was asked by a male member of the press if she had awakened in a cold sweat any nights while drawing up a lineup that continues to take CBS further away from the old “Touched by an Angel” days and deeper into edgy territory.

Raucous laughter started rippling through the room at CBS’s Black Rock headquarters in New York even before the reporter was even able to put a question mark at the end of it.

“I wake up in a cold sweat for other reasons,” said Ms. Tassler.
