[via press release from CBS]


CBS Interactive announced today that it is once again reaching into the vast CBS Library to make five more of its classic television programs and related clips available online across the CBS Audience Network. The new shows that will be available for viewing starting today include THE LOVE BOAT, BEVERLY HILLS 90210, TWIN PEAKS, FAMILY TIES and PERRY MASON. These programs are in addition to the Television Classics that were made available online in February which included STAR TREK, THE TWILIGHT ZONE, MACGYVER, HAWAII FIVE-O and MELROSE PLACE.

With the addition of these new programs, CBS leads the other broadcast networks in terms of delivering more full episodes and hours of network programming online. The distribution of Television Classics and clips across the CBS Audience Network and its hub, CBS.com, follows the same open, multi-partner, non-exclusive strategy that CBS first implemented nearly a year ago. All content is ad-supported, free to the consumer, and available beginning today. The CBS Library is one of the largest television programming libraries in the entertainment business and additional content will be made available online in the weeks to come.

The lineup of added library programming across the CBS Audience Network and CBS.com includes full episodes and clips of the following shows and seasons:

�- THE LOVE BOAT: Season 1

�- BEVERLY HILLS 90210: Seasons 1, 2 and 3

�- TWIN PEAKS: Seasons 1 and 2

�- FAMILY TIES: Season 1

�- PERRY MASON: Seasons 1 and 2

In conjunction with the new shows, additional seasons of some of the previously released classics are now available including:

�- MACGYVER: Seasons 2 through 7 now available, in addition to previously available Season 1

�- THE TWILIGHT ZONE: Season 3 now available, in addition to previously available Seasons 1 and 2

�- HAWAII FIVE-O: Season 2 now available, in addition to previously available Season 1

"Bringing these great television classics to our online audience provides CBS with a unique and unparalleled depth and breadth of professional content," said Joe Ferreira, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Content Acquisition, CBS Interactive. "Additionally, these classics are attractive to advertisers because the content is well known and comes with a passionate and highly engaged following. In making these shows widely available we expect to stimulate renewed interest and conversations around them."

"We've just begun to tap the library's programming potential online, on-air and anywhere in the digital space," said John Nogawski, President, CBS Television Distribution. "There are 70,000 hours of programming to mine and a seemingly infinite number of platforms looking for content. The footprint of the CBS Audience Network is well positioned to stir renewed interest in these series from television aficionados, as well as introduce a new generation of viewers to characters such as 'The Log Lady,' and 'Alex P. Keaton,' and memorable hangouts such as 'The Peach Pit' and 'The Lido Deck.'"

The more than 300 Web sites currently making up the CBS Audience Network includes partners such as AOL, Microsoft, CNET Networks, Comcast, Joost, Bebo, Netvibes, Sling Media and Veoh and social application partners including Automattic, Brightcove, Clearspring, DAVE Networks, Goowy Media, meebo, MeeVee, Musestorm, Ning, RockYou!, Slide, VideoEgg, Voxant and vSocial as well as Web sites from CBS's owned television, radio, and affiliated stations. The growing slate of CBS entertainment, news and sports content available includes a roster of full episodes, clips and highlights based on CBS and Showtime programming as well as original made-for-the-web content from EyeLab, a programming unit that produces and distributes short form video to the CBS Audience Network. All content is ad supported and free to consumers.
