My Letter to CBS

As long as I'm encouraging you to write to CBS, I wanted to show you what I'm writing to CBS. If its easier for you, feel free to use this as a guide for writing your own letter but do try to put it in your own voice for the most impact. Have your own letter to share? Post it in the Comments. I'll post the best of them as new blog entries. I'm sure you can do a better job than I did, so send them along. This won't take days for you to write your own, either. I wrote mine while watching TV. Just get your thoughts down and send them to CBS.

I wanted to express my significant appreciation and admiration for the CBS television program, How I Met Your Mother. This is one of the finest comedies on television today, and shaping up to one of the best sitcoms in television history. It is a testament to the CBS network and its advertisers that such an entertaining program is part of your line-up of shows.

I have eagerly watched How I Met Your Mother since its first season and have been continuously impressed at the quality of writing and acting of this show. I am an extremely amused viewer every Monday night. I watch eagerly ever week, including repeats, and the show has led me to sample other CBS programming that is promoted on the show. Before How I Met Your Mother, to be perfectly honest, I hadn’t watched CBS in years. As a young adult in my late 20’s, I simply did not feel the network had anything to offer me as a viewer. From Jericho to Rules of Engagement to Cold Case to The Class, I am now a CBS viewer and have advocated for your shows to my friends and family.

I want to thank you for bringing a fine program like How I Met Your Mother to the airwaves. It is part of a new generation of appointment television for those of us who have come of age with TiVo. I simply cannot wait to watch How I Met Your Mother and I know a great many people who agree with me. I look forward to enjoying this program on the CBS network for years to come.
