    Whoever at CBS made the deceision to put NCAA basketball on during prime-time should be fired! It should have been put on one of their cable stations instead of network stations. Well, now we can turn to NBC and ABC to see what shows they have on during primetime. Maybe CBS should replace that vulgar “Two Broke Girls” with “Too Stupid CBS Executives”.
