The upfront event for top-rated CBS typically has the smoothness and confidence of a long-running Broadway musical that makes other productions in the area look like dinner theater.
Wednesday afternoon's event, which included an entertaining rap-opera number by NCIS L.A. star LL Cool J and lyric soprano Danielle de Niese, was no different. CEO Les Moonves, bragging about the network's position of strength, summed up his pitch to advertisers in four syllables.
"Blah," he began, concluding, "blah, blah, blah."
The biggest news was the announcement that Two and a Half Men, having re-secured the services of wily man-child Ashton Kutcher, was being moved to Thursdays and teamed with The Big Bang Theory.
The theory is that this will defeat other networks by creating an impenetrable force field of howling sitcom laughter.

Lucy Liu has received a special 40th birthday present: a Danny Kaye Humanitarian Award from UNICEF.
"I feel overwhelmed and incredibly happy," the Dirty Sexy Money star said at the UNICEF Snowflake Ball in New York Wednesday night, where guests included Téa Leoni, first daughter Barbara Bush, and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
Liu's birthday was actually Tuesday, but that didn't stop the many guests at the event from wishing her well.
She also got a special birthday tribute from Oscar-nominated songwriter Jon McLaughlin, who sang "Happy Birthday" to her before performing his single "Beating My Heart."
The actress lost her voice before the event, but still participated in the evening's auction. She donated $10,000 for a raft to carry supplies over water.

With its foursome of fierce female friends, it's no secret that Cashmere Mafia is trying to fill the gap left by Sex and the City (Darren Star is the executive producer, after all). And after Sunday's preview and Wednesday's premiere, we're seeing plenty of similarities — the trendy clothes, the hip New York nightspots, the gorgeous guys, the never-ending martinis, the impossibly perfect apartments, the fairytale Manhattan backdrop...The show even has its own bubbly theme song!

As this weekend's box office results soberly showed, this summer's much-ballyhooed sequels to "Legally Blonde" and "Charlie's Angels" will be lucky if they make it to the $100 million mark.

Tuesday night's scene at the London premiere of "Charlie's Angels II: Full Throttle" was remarkably quieter than Monday's events at the Paris premiere, where some 300 French film and theater extras, on the second day of a nationwide work strike, broke through barricades to stage a sit-down protest, forcing the Angels to sneak in through a side door to avoid any confrontation, reports PEOPLE's London bureau.
