CBS Blackout on Time Warner Cable Ends

About 3.5 million Time Warner Cable customer will get their CBS programs back at 6pmET as CBS and TWC have come to an agreement. In fact, programming returned even earlier as coverage of the U.S. Open quarterfinals aired on CBS.

CBS did not release terms of the deal but added, “the agreement includes retransmission consent, as well as Showtime Anytime and VOD, for CBS stations on Time Warner Cable systems in New York, Los Angeles and Dallas.” The CBS-owned stations in those markets and others, have been dark for the last month – since August 2 – on Time Warner Cable. The blackout also affected Showtime, the Movie Channel, Flix and the Smithsonian Channel.

The resolution comes as the NFL season is about to get underway, as the U.S. Open enters the finals, and CBS’ new Fall season approaches.

More: The news of the resolution was the second story on WCBS’s 6pm newscast: “We welcome you back,” said anchor Dana Tyler.

CBS' annual airing of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" drew 12.2 million viewers Nov. 30.

Several stars of CBS primetime shows were there, including Tom Selleck who stars in “Blue Bloods,” and Christine Baranski and Matt Czuchry of “The Good Wife.” And while Moonves can tout having the most-watched TV network, the stars of his struggling news division also worked the room — including the new front four of “The Early Show:” Erica Hill, Chris WraggeJeff Glor and Marysol Castro. The team will be hitting the road next week, making stops at several CBS affiliates where the #3-in-the-ratings show performs relatively well. (Our sister blog TVSpy reports Wragge’s last day on WCBS is today.)

We talked with show EP David Friedman and CBS News & Sports President Sean McManus who both expressed their confidence in the team. “It’ll take some time,” said McManus, “but this is a good group. I’m excited.”
