Nevertheless, the rural purge worked. CBS' replacements for its canceled rural-themed shows, such as ''Series/TheMaryTylerMooreShow'' and ''Series/AllInTheFamily'', got the ratings that they wanted and became classics in their own right. Even as Creator/{{ABC}} boomed in the '70s and took the top spot, CBS continued to do well, sitting comfortably in second place right into the early 1980s, with several classic TV shows such as ''Series/{{MASH}}'' and ''All in the Family'''s many {{spinoff}}s (''TheJeffersons'', ''Series/{{Maude}}'', and ''Series/GoodTimes'') carrying the load handily. They even indulged in genre TV in the late 1970s with shows based on Marvel superheroes ''The Amazing Spider-Man'' and ''Series/TheIncredibleHulk''.

During the 1950s and 1960s, CBS had, arguably, the greatest television news department in the world. With anchors like Edward R. Murrow (the man who fought [[RedScare Joe McCarthy]] and won) and Walter Cronkite ("The Most Trusted Man in America"), and shows like ''Series/SixtyMinutes'', CBS News ruled the roost. Their ''CBS Reports'' specials became famous. In 1960, Murrow's ''CBS Reports'' documentary ''Harvest of Shame'' showed the plight of American migrant agricultural workers, and is acknowledged as one of the greatest news stories ever. ''Harvest of Shame'' forever changed the nature of TV news and set the tone for a generation of investigative journalists. Their cut-in to report of the JohnFKennedy assassination (the entire report) has since been inducted into the Smithsonian, and set the tone for the reporting of breaking news for years to come.

In the TurnOfTheMillennium, CBS started turning itself around, debuting the megahits ''Series/{{Survivor}}'' and ''Series/{{CSI}}'' in 2000, and following them up over the next few years with a number of hit {{police procedural}}s (including ''CSI'''s [[Series/CSINewYork first two]] [[Series/CSIMiami spinoffs]]) and [[{{Sitcom}} sitcoms]]. The network recovered from the abyss, running neck-and-neck with {{Fox}} for the number one spot in the ratings, and started becoming popular with younger audiences again... just as network television viewership overall started to decline with the rise of NewMedia. That said, CBS seems to be handling the new media shift far better than the new Viacom has; they've invested heavily in streaming, going as far as putting several classic Paramount/Desilu shows (which were retained by CBS after Paramount's film studio was allocated to the new Viacom in the split) such as ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' and ''Series/MacGyver'' up for viewing, and also bought CNET Networks' family of websites in 2008, rebranding it as CBS Interactive (this subsidiary also includes Website/GameFAQs, Last.fm, Metacritic and TV.com, in addition to the various CNET websites). Nevertheless, the old joke about being the "network for the living dead" arose again in the early [[TheNewTens 2010s]], as its shows became increasingly [[StrictlyFormula formulaic]] and geared toward older viewers. However, this was now a ''winning'' strategy--after all, which demographic still watches broadcast TV nowadays?--and CBS continued to proudly tout itself as "America's Most-Watched Network".
