Yahoo TV to Run Two CBS Comedies

Dec 27, 2005  •  Post A Comment

Internet site Yahoo TV is streaming commercial-free episodes of two CBS comedies for a week, the first such partnership between the Web company and the broadcaster.

Starting today and running through Monday, Jan. 2, Yahoo is offering two encore episodes from “Two and a Half Men” and “How I Met Your Mother” that were broadcast earlier in the season on CBS.

The partnership with Yahoo gives CBS “the chance to target an expanded online audience for ‘Two and a Half Men’ and ‘How I Met Your Mother’ at a time of the year when many potential viewers are home on vacation and surfing the Internet,” said Nancy Tellem, president of CBS Paramount Network Television Entertainment Group.

“Men” is produced by Chuck Lorre Productions and the Tannenbaum Co., in association with Warner Bros. Television Production. “Mother” is produced by 20th Century Fox Television.
