And this final note, some news many of you have been waiting for. Time Warner and CBS have announced that they have ended their payment dispute. Millions of Time Warner consumers can expect CBS programming and shows in their homes tonight.

The fight between the two companies lasted a month and included a blackout of channels like CBS, CBS Sports Network and premium offerings like Showtime.

Details of the deal have not been disclosed, but sports fans can rejoice — they can now watch the U.S. Open finals and the NFL, which is slated to air on CBS this weekend.
