Dumbing down (and down, and down, and down)

The CBS show Cold Case (yet another cop drama where detectives solve murder cases from the past that are still open) is so dumb that Litchick solved this week's "mystery" during the opening sequence, before the victim was even revealed. So, WB would like to briefly borrow Stephen Colbert's shtick for the following announcement:

CBS, consider yourself on notice. We understand the reasoning behind formulaic television shows, but when the formula becomes this transparently obvious, it's time to do some serious tinkering. Even the ubiquitous reruns of Friends involve more suspense than the drivel you're airing on Sunday nights.
