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.

With parents like Amy Poehler and Will Arnett, is it any wonder that baby Archie is already cracking a smile?
"He's loving being a baby right now," the proud papa told PEOPLE Wednesday night, as the American Museum of Moving Images saluted Ben Stiller. "He's thinking about smiling. He's trying to decide if he's ready or not."
It's only a matter of time, predicts SNL costar Bill Hader.
"That kid's got hilarious parents," Hader told PEOPLE, adding that Saturday Night Live star Poehler is "an amazing mom." "That kid is going to be the funniest. We're going to have Archie Arnett being saluted here in about 30 years."

Saturday Night Live castmember Kristen Wiig is counting the minutes until the NBC show returns this weekend. One big reason? The season's first host.
"I'm excited to meet Michael Phelps!" she told PEOPLE at a bash celebrating her film Ghost Town at the Toronto Film Festival. "He's gonna be naked in all the sketches I write, for sure."
But the 23-year-old Phelps, who won an astonishing eight gold medals at the 2008 Summer Olympics, will still have plenty of costume changes.
"There are some people that you can just picture with a wig on and it's funny," she said at the event sponsored by Hollywood Life magazine. "He's one of those people."

With a baby on the way, Amy Poehler says she and husband Will Arnett will celebrate her Emmy nomination with prenatal care in mind.
"Ice-cream shots!" Poehler tells PEOPLE after she was nominated for outstanding actress in a comedy series on Saturday Night Live.
"It's super hot," adds Arnett. "So it'll be a lot of staying indoors, getting ice cream, and keeping cool."
The comedy couple don't know the sex of their child, and haven't prepared a nursery yet, but they say they've still got some time yet to get ready.
"I think it drops in October," Arnett, 38, says. "We're very excited."
Poehler jokingly confesses there might be another issue they have to deal with first.
"My brother said when they announce the nominees I'll take up two of the five boxes," Poehler, 36, says.
