CBS has been called the Eye Network, because of an iconic logo, in use since 1951. It's also been called the Tiffany Network after high-quality programming during the tenure of William S. Paley.

Anchorman Charlie Rose, then CEO Les Moonves and most recently Jeff Fager, executive producer of 60 Minutes have all left the building following allegations, investigations and determinations of wrongdoing. A #MeToo movement has besieged a network in the eye of the storm.
