Then, Neil Patrick Harris introduced network President and CEO Leslie Moonves, noting that “without him TV would be ‘les miserable.'” Moonves proudly announced that CBS was once again #1 in viewers for the tenth time in 11 years. As a result, the network was renewing 20 shows. “That shows you how tough it is to get on our schedule,” said Moonves, adding that the new series making the cut for the 2013-2014 season “are the best of the best.” Here’s a look at what’s coming up.
