The new CBS episodes will begin to appear on Hulu Plus in the coming weeks, with a selection of CBS library shows rotating through the free Hulu.com service.

"CBS programming on Hulu Plus has performed exceptionally well," said Scott Koondel, Chief Corporate Content Licensing Officer, CBS Corporation. "We're thrilled to expand our relationship with them, providing more terrific CBS content to their growing base of subscribers."

"With the newly expanded CBS content library, Hulu Plus subscribers will be treated to some of the most significant shows ever seen on television," said Hulu Chief Executive Officer Mike Hopkins. "From 'Happy Days' to 'Cheers' and 'Everybody Loves Raymond,' these hit shows defined their eras, and we're thrilled to offer full seasons to be enjoyed by new and loyal audiences anytime, anywhere."

CBS and Hulu Plus also recently announced an exclusive subscription video on demand agreement for previous seasons of the crime drama ELEMENTARY and a separate deal to stream previous seasons of the police procedural BLUE BLOODS.
