Finally we got to the CBS panel, which, according to journalists, was the most boring. After all the channel is good, it leads in total viewers and all the new series of the channels have been extended for a full season.
The very first question to the president of the channel Nina Tassler was a question about Charlie Sheen, who arranged another drunken brawl in the company of supermodels and porn stars. "What an unexpected question - joked Tassler, - But seriously, we're all very concerned. And how else? As people and his friends we are concerned because he has a family and children. But on the other hand, Charlie is professional. He comes to work (which is not always true - since the last adventures of Charlie he was not on scene). He does his job well, and his series - a hit. He knows that we are worried for him".
Hawaii Five-0. Tassler said that by the end of the first season in the series will add a female character. For a time, until we met with the forces for the transfer of this material, there was news that the cast of Hawaii Five-0 was supplemented with actress Larisa Oleynik. Oleynik will play a former CIA analyst Jessica Kay. For the first time the character appears on our screens in March.
"Idol" on Thursdays. Tassler acknowledged that the move of "American Idol" on Thursday is a threat to CBS. But Nina Tassler also correctly predicted the stability rating of The Big Bang Theory. "Theory" has very loyal audience, besides, I'm sure, viewers will be enough for everyone – and for "Idol" and for our comedies."
Blue Bloods. Tassler said that the channel is very pleased with those ratings, which are Blue Bloods collected on Fridays, so management decided to give a chance for TV series on Wednesday.
Bleep My Dad Says. Tassler acknowledged that in the creative plan this serial has a lot of work. "Any TV series in the first year of life have a lot to fix." In her opinion, the series has already made some important steps toward increasing the quality. In particular, a significant step forward would be an arch with Jean
Smart. The fate of the series will be decided in May.
NCIS. Tassler immediately brushed off all the speculation about the extension of the contract with Mark Harmon, which expires this season. "We are confident that Mark will remain in the series. He is satisfied with everything and we are glad to have him. But negotiations over the renewal of the contract - it's a natural process for our business".
Flashpoint and The Bridge. Canadian police drama Flashpoint returns this summer to broadcast of CBS. The channel has 6 episodes in reserve. But Canada's The Bridge will not order more on CBS. This decision of CBS has led to the closure of The Bridge in Canada, as a few days after the panel announced the Canadian channel CTV. Therefore, the previously announced second season of The Bridge will not be released.
Pilots. Despite the fact that the program list of the channel lineup of competitors nervously biting their elbows, CBS will order as many pilots this year, as in the past. Although there are no holes in our schedule, those new series that we will order, receive different timeslots.
List of top ten ranked episodes on television now makes us fall into nostalgia. No ether after 2006. With the ever increasing teleuniverse, a piece of cake for each channel becomes smaller, and we hardly ever see such a list. It includes maximum one episode from each show.
Date: May 6, 2004
Attendance: 52.5 million
Last episode of "Friends" finale was the golden age of comedy on television, as well as the beginning of the decline of channel NBC. At the time the final "Friends" became the highest rating ether entertaining show for six years and remains so to this day.

"Survivor" at the time was a new program, started in the dead summer months. However, the August finale nearly broke the finale of "Friends". Viewers have discovered that a new genre of "reality show" does not always win the goodies.
3. Joe Millionaire
Date: February 17, 2003
Attendance: 40 million
Another reality show, marching for one season. Continued in the form of The Next Joe Millionaire could not attract the same audience.

Week earlier, a schizophrenic patient attacked Lucy Knight and John Carter, leaving the two doctors to bleed. Viewers wanted to see who in the episode "All in the Family" will survive. It is considered one of the most dramatic episodes of the series.
5. American Idol

Attendance: 38 million
Code Black! (Warning about the bomb or evacuate due to bomb). The episode, which came after the Super Bowl, has managed to attract the attention of football fans. Dud that was inside the patient can not draw attention!
7. Who Wants to Be a Millionaire
Date: May 3, 2000
Attendance: 36 million
36 million - total viewers over three episodes of "Millionaire", which ran in the same week in May. ABC has often been criticized for what they put on a show three or even four times a week. Perhaps this was the main cause of the short history of the show.

It was not even the final of the series. Such a large audience gathered last episode with Michael Jay Fox, who left the show because of worsening symptoms of Parkinson's disease.
The ninth season of competition between non-professional singers gathers at the screens of 25 million weekly viewers. As a result, the activity of advertisers, every half-hour show programs are 8,1 million dollars every half hour, a total of over 32 million dollars for a two-hour episode.
But this is only statistic for people, but telling the truth this show has much more problems and needs radical changes. The first steps have been started. As it was announced, "American Idol" will be extended to 90 minutes in Tuesdays, and halved to 30 minutes in Wednesdays, in the next year.
Other changes in this American's top-rated TV show should be taken inside the show team: judges, producers, Kara new role, new interesting themes and musical supervision and scoring.
Changes in judges stuff: It seems to me, that Randy Jackson takes much time but say a little. Ellen DeGeneres' is not funny enough and what concerns Kara DioGuardi, so this woman is not so skillful in some moments, and sometimes it's put out!
Elton John - a superstar and that says it all!
P. Diddy "cool man"! Great producer, rapper, record executive, which brings variety to this show!
Paula Abdul - funny women. She is hocusing the situation, by her spontaneity. So, Paula we are waiting for you the next "Idol" season too!
If we speak about Kara's new role, so I want to mention, that DioGuardi writes songs for famous endorsements, such as Christina Aguilera, Pink, Kelly Clarkson and Warner Bros.company, as well as for "American Idol". But here, should be paid attention to the songs, which would be easy for non professional singers. Musical Genius Kara can write great songs for those singers.

Producer's role is the most important in this show! It's all depending upon producers viewing of the future scene and the result of performance. The new "Idol" season truly needs new record producer, the great example of which may be David Foster ("Idol" 2005).
One more fresh idea, when the competition has been trimmed to 12 finalists, "Idol" should enlist a hit producer each week. Among them may be: Linda Perry, Max Martin, Rodney Jerkins, Dr. Luke, Timbaland, John Shanks, Kanye West, Dann Huff, Stargate, will.i.am, Butch Walker, John Rich and J.R. Rotem.
New song themes and fresh musical arrangement for "Idol" are highly recommended! With no doubt! Most of viewers are teenagers and they prefer modern music, instead of Sinatra and Elvis!
Besides, in order to attract more viewers, there should be made some changes in voting procedure!
"American Idol" is one of the best viewed shows in the USA, so don't let it lose ground!
