Strip 'er

TV Week has a great piece about the current health of the sitcom, specifically as it’s served up by CBS. In short: the sitcom is alive and well, and not going anywhere (especially since people aren’t so keen on rewatching cycle 9 of America’s Next Top Model at 2pm on a weekday). If you’re interested in how CBS runs things, or are curious about how all this syndication stuff works, it’s a great read.
