Pardon my rant against CBS
As recently as six years ago A&E covered the Pops goes the Fourth celebration in Boston for the 4th of July and did a great job doing it with three hours of full coverage. Then CBS got a five year deal to replace A&E but did a miserable job by comparison to A&E. The finale of the event is the Boston Pops rendition of the 1812 overture complete with 105mm howitzers. CBS never in five years covered that part. Even with CBS doing the last five, we haven't missed this event in ten years. This year I see that CBS rather not interrupt their 'prime time' lineup to cover this event or any other 4th of July celebration for the national audience. I guess CBS thinks we all need to get our weekly dose of 'Two and a Half Men'. Considering the recent events in Boston, I think CBS is (to quote someone else) ACTING STUPIDLY.
