CBS Bites the Bullet, Previews Its New Programming Against a Backdrop of Scandal

Aug 9, 2018  •  Post A Comment

It was early on a Sunday, the morning after the Television Critics Association awards, where celebrating often goes late into the night after the ceremonies. But instead of a leisurely a.m. before getting back to business of the summer press tour at the Beverly Hilton, all eyes were alert and focused on CBS Entertainment chief Kelly Kahl as he took the podium under the intense scrutiny of the assembled journalists.

Kahl began by addressing the elephant in the room — the scandal surrounding CBS Corp. Chairman and CEO Leslie Moonves and what has been described as a culture of sexual harassment in the workplace at CBS. Then Kahl did what he was there to do, introducing a lineup of programming that includes the new Dick Wolf series “FBI,” the “Murphy Brown” reboot and the Cedric the Entertainer comedy “The Neighborhood.”
