CBS is the warrior king of networks, and its upfront typically feels like the ritual unfurling of an illustrated tapestry of conquests.
This year's event included the cast of How I Met Your Mother, now heading into its final season, singing a parody of Les Misérables beneath yellow umbrellas on the Carnegie Hall stage.
David Letterman, who is now the official anti-Jimmy of late night, made a brief (and rare) appearance, and Robin Williams, a high-profile addition to the lineup with a new sitcom called The Crazy Ones, gave the crowd a few moments of fast-riffing standup. He mentioned prostitutes, cocaine, FOX News and the notoriously bizarre variety show Pink Lady and Jeff.
Here are three shows that struck me as keepers, at least for as long as the audience will have them.

Sunday night's 61st Primetime Emmy Awards got off to a big yuk even though the first winner of the evening, Kristin Chenoweth, dissolved into tears as she accepted her golden statuette as best supporting actress in a comedy series – ABC's canceled Pushing Daisies.
"I don't know why I'm crying," she said, after thanking her parents. "I'm unemployed now, and I'd like to be on Mad Men. I also like The Office and '24'." Chenoweth concluded by thanking the TV Academy for recognizing a show no longer on the air.
Laughs were the order of the night. When Alec Baldwin delivered his Emmy acceptance speech for best actor in a comedy series, the 30 Rock star, grabbing his statuette from presenter Rob Lowe, told the crowd, "I'd trade this to look like him."
Supporting actor in a sitcom, Jon Cryer, took the Emmy for CBS's Two and a Half Men. Accepting, he said he used to think awards were shallow displays of popularity, while now he sees that they recognize true achievement. He also said of costar Charlie Sheen, "He's amazing."
