Star Trek Discovery pulled in almost 10 million viewers on CBS for its premiere. Of course CBS plan to get people to pay for their streaming service that no one else wanted, worked, where a bunch of Trek fans ponied up for the streaming service setting records to the number of sign ups for a day and month.
With me, as much as I wanted to watch the show, I steered clear of it. There was no reason to watch that first episode if I could not catch the rest of the series without paying for it. I do not need an extra monthly fee to watch TV. I pay enough as it is.
But that's just me.
Any way, good plan CBS. It worked.
Remember, Spike TV is rebranding itself to The Paramount Network starting on January 18th, and to celebrate that change, their first show they will broadcast will be Lip Sync Battle, then a six-part series called Waco.
Huh, Lip Sync Battle? That's their lead-in to their new personality? Huh.
