 CBS's Outperformance: Hare Today, Gone Tomorrow
Since the first day of trading on Jan. 3, 2006, CBS has generated a total return for shareholders of 48% against Viacom's 16%. But is the CBS hare about to run out of puff?


Host Daryl Somers apologized to Connick at the end of the live show.
主持人桑默斯在這段現場節目結束後向康尼克道歉。俞智敏
Connick said he would not have appeared on the show if he’d known about the skit. "I know it was done humorously, but we’ve spent so much time trying to not make black people look like buffoons, that when we see something like that we take it really to heart," he told Somers after his apology.
康尼克則表示,假如事先知道有這段表演,他就不會上節目。「我知道這是幽默的表演,但我們花了這麼長的時間試圖不要再讓黑人看起來像丑角,所以當我們看到這種事時,態度會非常嚴肅,」康尼克在桑默斯道歉後表示。
