CBS will finish the 2012-13 broadcast season as the No. 1 network in viewers, which is par for the course over the past decade, but CBS is also expected to be No. 1 in the 18-49 age demo, which hasn’t happened since the 1991-92 TV season.
Success does not breed complacency at the Tiffany Network, which will add a quartet of new comedies this fall, including a two-hour comedy block with Robin Williams on Thursday that will go up against an NBC comedy block. In addition, two of CBS’s comedies are single-camera shows similar in look to NBC’s “Parks and Recreation” and ABC’s “Modern Family,” a style CBS has not embraced in the past.
