In my previous post, I mentioned how the three television networks are sequencing commercial breaks for their nightly news broadcasts at the same time in their attempt to retain audience attention.
CBS however has taken this strategy to a new level.
Although I was aware CBS had hired her for its nightly new broadcast, I hadn’t yet tuned in.
After growing weary of the content coming from the other two channels, I switched to CBS. I was surprised to see Couric sitting on her news desk in a dress. The lights were low and her tones were hushed. At first, I wasn’t sure whether I had entered the right channel number or not!
Then it struck me.
In its efforts to keep from losing any more viewers, CBS has differentiated itself by resorting to seduction to sell their version of the nightly news a la Couric.
I don’t recall watching Walter Chronkite sell the news from atop his desk in a muscle shirt.
Is CBS Naked Nightly News next?
