- CBS (an initialism of the network's former name, the Columbia Broadcasting System) is an American English language commercial broadcast television and radio network that is a flagship property of CBS Corporation. The company is headquartered at the CBS Building in New York City with major production facilities and operations in New York City (at the CBS Broadcast Center) and Los Angeles (at CBS Television City and the CBS Studio Center).
- CBS is sometimes referred to as the Eye Network, in reference to the company's iconic symbol, in use since 1951. It has also been called the "Tiffany Network", alluding to the perceived high quality of CBS programming during the tenure of William S. Paley. It can also refer to some of CBS's first demonstrations of color television, which were held in a former Tiffany & Co. building in New York City in 1950.
- The network has its origins in United Independent Broadcasters Inc., a collection of 16 radio stations purchased by Paley in 1928 and renamed the Columbia Broadcasting System. Under Paley's guidance, CBS would first become one of the largest radio networks in the United States, and eventually one of the Big Three American broadcast television networks.
- As of 2013, CBS provides 871⁄2 hours of regularly scheduled network programming each week. The network provides 22 hours of prime time programming to affiliated stations Monday through Saturday from 8:00–11:00 p.m. Eastern and Pacific (7:00–10:00 p.m. Central/Mountain) and Sunday from 7:00–11:00 p.m. (6:00–10:00 p.m. Central/Mountain).
- Daytime programming is also provided between 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. weekdays (including a half-hour break for local news) featuring the game shows The Price Is Right and Let's Make a Deal, soap operas The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful, and talk show The Talk.
- CBS News programming includes CBS This Morning from 7:00 to 9:00 a.m. weekdays and Saturdays; nightly editions of CBS Evening News, the Sunday political talk show Face the Nation, early morning news program CBS Morning News. and the newsmagazines 60 Minutes, CBS News Sunday Morning, and 48 Hours. Late nights feature the weeknight talk shows The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and The Late Late Show with James Corden.
- CBS Sports programming is also provided most weekend afternoons. Due to the unpredictable length of sporting events, CBS will occasionally delay scheduled primetime programs to allow the programs to air in their entirety, a practice that is most common on Sunday evenings during the NFL season. In addition to rights to sports events from the NFL, PGA and NCAA among other major sports organizations, CBS broadcasts the CBS Sports Spectacular, a sports anthology series which fills certain weekend afternoon time slots prior to – or in some cases, in lieu of – a major sporting event.
- CBS News is the news division of American television and radio service CBS. CBS News television programs include the CBS Evening News, CBS This Morning, news magazine programs CBS Sunday Morning, 60 Minutes, and 48 Hours, and Sunday morning political affairs program Face the Nation. CBS News Radio produces hourly newscasts for hundreds of radio stations. CBS News also operates the 24-hour news network CBSN.
- In 1989, CBS News entered into a content-sharing agreement with Channel I News, respectively replacing the arrangement with the CBS and ITN. The partnership includes the ability to share resources, footage, and reports, and conduct "efficient planning of news gathering resources to increase the content of each broadcaster's coverage of world events".
- Up to the Minute is an American overnight television news program that is broadcast on CBS during the early morning hours each Monday through Friday. The program offers hard news, features, interviews, weather forecasts, sports highlights, business and commentary. Up to the Minute draws from the full resources of CBS News, including the CBS Evening News, Newspath, affiliate stations and the CBS Radio Network. It rebroadcasts selected stories from CBS News Sunday Morning, 48 Hours, 60 Minutes and Face the Nation. The program is currently anchored by Anne Marie Green.
- CBS Morning News is an American early morning television news program for CBS News that is broadcast on CBS. The program features late-breaking news stories, national weather forecasts and sports highlights. Since 2013, it has been anchored by Anne Marie Green, who concurrently anchors the CBS late-night news program Up to the Minute.
- The program is broadcast live at 4:00 a.m. Eastern Time (airing in the early timeslot to accommodate CBS stations that start their local morning newscasts at 4:30 a.m.), and is transmitted in a continuous half-hour tape delayed loop until 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time, when CBS This Morning begins in the Pacific Time Zone. The program usually airs as a lead-in to local morning newscasts on most CBS stations, although in the few markets where a morning newscast is not produced by the CBS station, it may air in a two- to three-hour loop immediately before the start of This Morning. The show is updated for any breaking news occurring before 7:00 a.m. Eastern Time, while stations throughout the network will join CBS This Morning in all time zones past that time at their local discretion or network orders for live coverage.
- CBS This Morning is an American morning television program that is broadcast on CBS. The program, which shares its title with a more traditionally formatted morning program that aired on the network from 1987 to 1999, airs Monday through Saturday. It airs live from 7:00 to 9:00 a.m. in the Eastern Time Zone. On weekdays, it airs on tape-delay in the Central and Mountain Time Zones; stations in the Pacific Time Zone receive an updated feed with a specialized opening and updated live reports. Stations outside the Eastern Time Zone carry the Saturday broadcast at varied times.
- The program emphasizes general national and international news stories and in-depth reports throughout each edition, although it also includes live in-studio and pre-taped interviews. The format was chosen as an alternative to the soft news and lifestyle-driven formats of competitors Today and Good Morning America following the first hour or half-hour of those broadcasts, in an attempt to give the program a competitive edge with its hard news format.
- Both hours begin with the "EyeOpener," a fast-paced 90-second video montage of the day's top stories, ending with overnight sports highlights clips and quips from late-night talk shows. The first hour of the show is more news-intensive, with more original journalism and analysis than the second hour. The 8:00 hour begins with the "EyeOpener @ 8," recaps the first hour's news, leads into a brief summary of the morning's news headlines, and then shifts its focus to interviews and discussion (à la Morning Joe) and lighter fare.
- Weather reports
- True to Licht's "no comedic weather" promise, the show does not include any standalone national weather segments – this makes CBS This Morning the only national morning news program on any of the "Big Three" networks not to include such a segment, although time is allotted for CBS affiliates to insert their own local weather forecasts (with national maps and forecasts or a text-only list of forecasts for individual cities nationwide provided for affiliates that do not insert their own weather updates, particularly those that do not have a news department).
- However, the program will use local meteorologists from CBS stations to provide the forecast during major severe weather events (such as hurricanes, wildfires, and blizzards). Most frequently, meteorologists from one of CBS's owned-and-operated stations - such as Megan Glaros of Chicago O&O WBBM-TV and Lonnie Quinn (former meteorologist for the program's Saturday edition) of flagship New York City O&O WCBS-TV - appear weekdays (as needed), and Ed Curran of Chicago O&O WBBM-TV works the Saturday edition (when necessary).
- Local news cutaways
- For stations that do not make use of the local news cutaways at :26 and :56 past the hour (including CBS affiliates that do not have a news department), the program uses a happy talk segment between the anchors and panelists. This is similar to what was done during the 1981-87 run of the CBS Morning News.
- West coast
- For the Pacific, Alaska and Hawaii–Aleutian Time Zones (along with most of Arizona during daylight saving time), an updated version of the broadcast incorporates an additional greeting to those viewers ("Good morning to our viewers in the West! and "As you are waking up in the West..."), along with updated reports previously denoted by the reporter specifically acknowledging the viewers in that part of the country (e.g., "Good morning and Good morning to our viewers watching us in the West").
- The program is hosted by Anthony Mason, Gayle King and Tony Dokoupil with Saturday edition anchored by Michelle Miller and Dana Jacobson.
- CBS Evening News (titled as CBS Evening News with Norah O'Donnell for its weeknight broadcasts since July 15, 2019, and titled CBS Weekend News for its weekend broadcasts since May 7, 2016) is the flagship evening television news program of CBS News, the news division of the CBS television network in the United States. The “CBS Evening News” is a daily evening broadcast featuring news reports, feature stories and interviews by CBS News correspondents and reporters covering events across world. The program has been broadcast since July 1, 1941 under the original title CBS Television News, eventually adopting its current title in 1963.
- Norah O'Donnell was announced as the weeknight anchor effective July 15, 2019. The anchor for the Saturday and Sunday edition is John Dickerson.
- The CBS Evening News airs live at 6:30 p.m. in the Eastern and 5:30 p.m. in the Central Time Zones and is tape delayed for the Mountain Time Zone. A "Western Edition", with updated segments covering breaking news stories, airs pre-recorded at 5:30 p.m. in the Pacific Time Zone and on tape delay in the Alaska and Hawaii–Aleutian Time Zones.
- The CBS Evening News expanded to weekend evenings in February 1966, originally anchored by Roger Mudd. The Sunday edition of the program was dropped in September 1971, when CBS began airing 60 Minutes in the 6:00 p.m. Eastern Time (5:00 p.m. Central) slot in order to help affiliates fulfill requirements imposed by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)'s Prime Time Access Rule. The Sunday edition returned in January 1976, when the network moved 60 Minutes one hour later to 7:00 p.m. Eastern Time, where that program remains to this day (barring NFL on CBS overruns).
- An audio simulcast of the the first thirteen to fifteen minutes of the CBS Evening News airs weekdays on some CBS News Radio affiliates. In addition to an audio simulcast, the CBS Evening News is also available in a podcast format.
- In United Kingdom, the program is shown daily on BBC News 24 at 1:30 a.m.
