Constant Bull Shit (CBS nickname)

CBS (the initials of the original name of the Columbia Broadcasting System) is an American broadcast television and radio network. “Constant Bull Shit” is an unflattering nickname based on the three letters.

“CBS (Constant Bull Shit)” was posted on the newsgroup alt.books.stephen-king on July 20, 1996. “ CBS ( Constant B.S Network)” was posted on the newsgroup alt.republican on September 20, 2004.

Other CBS nicknames include “Complete Bull Shit” and “See B. S.”


Wikipedia: CBS
CBS (an initialism of the network’s former name, the Columbia Broadcasting System) is an American English language commercial broadcast television and radio network that is a flagship property of CBS Corporation. The company is headquartered at the CBS Building in New York City with major production facilities and operations in New York City (at the CBS Broadcast Center) and Los Angeles (at CBS Television City and the CBS Studio Center).
(...)
The network has its origins in United Independent Broadcasters Inc., a collection of 16 radio stations that was purchased by Paley in 1928 and renamed the Columbia Broadcasting System.

Yes, CBS (Constant Bull Shit) originated the show and has subsequently cancelled it after virutally no promotion and a switch in time slots.

CNN stands for Constant Negative News. CBS stands for Constant “B.S.” NBC stands for Negative B.S. and ABC stands for Absolute B.S. Love it!
