"Before I came here today, I received a massive document from the network, full of details about how well CBS performed this year," The Late Show host said in his CBS upfront monologue. "Now, I did not have the time to get through it all, so I just read Bill Barr’s four-page summary. Turns out, Les Moonves, totally exonerated. I did not see that coming.” Colbert also brought up CBS being No. 1 for 11 years. “Why is CBS number one? Because we’re always innovating," he said. "Next season we’ll have shows from young up-and-comers like Chuck Lorre. When it comes to finding new voices, CBS will take a chance on anyone who is already on CBS.” He also mentioned CBS' streaming service. "I haven’t even talked about CBS All Access," he said. "Something I have in common with most Americans"
