Did you know there’s a new trend out there where instead of shaking hands people now just slap one another in the back of the head? Thanks, NCIS!

OK, fine, Letterman’s ad was great and yes, NCIS/CSIxMiami-Vegas-NewYork-TheMoon are the most watched shows or whatever. But do we really need to be reminded of that? Sure, CBS sold out all their ad space but it seems more likely that they limited inventory by filling a bunch of space with useless promos.
