Just torrent it. If CBS wanted you to watch it any other way then they would have made it available

Exactly! There has to be a paradigm shift or revenue is left behind.

In a 24 hour society is everyone able to watch the original airing? Does everyone own a DVR? Buy it on DVD? This is 2011, check DVD sales. Wait for a re-run? Read the 24 hour sentence again.

Perhaps, make all episodes available to stream on-demand while selling commercial time within those streams. I'd sure go that route if available.

Or, a few mouse clicks and you get a torrent in whatever HD resolution you desire. Hmm, I wonder why torrents are multiplying like rabbits?

I don't want to rain on Pete's parade here, but he's just wrong on so many levels. The desert heat may have clouded his memory.

First, there is no such thing as Philly pizza, it's the same as New York pizza. If you want to taste unique pizza in PA you have to travel to Old Forge. Look it up, it's the one thing that shitty little town is famous for.

Second, if you want a historic dog, you go to Hot Dog Johnny's in Buttzville NJ, been there since 1944. A dog with a pickle! Johnny's did it long before this Toby's place.

Third, the things Primanti Bother's concoct is not a "sammich".  I was just there three weeks ago, and everyone pronounced it "sandwich". In fact, I just saw a Travel Channel show called "Sandwich Paradise" today. Of course Primanti's was featured, and the owners as well as everyone else pronounced it "sandwich".

And last, but I'll admit this is a personal thing, Philly cheesesteaks suck. Get a steak and cheese anywhere else and it's better. Raw onions, American cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, and mayo....yumm. Or perhaps provalone, fried onions, mushrooms, and tomato sauce, equally as good.

Not trying to be nasty, but there are many things PA is famous for...potholes, unemployment, coal-crackcer accents, sinkholes, and a few good things of which I can't think of at the moment.

Oh yeah, the Phillies and the Steelers, other than that, you ain't missing much Pete.

Another vote for Pats, just to say that you did it. Then forget about it.

I'm not far from Philadelphia, and go there several times a year to see sporting events and a few other places of interest. That being said, I find the famous Philly cheese steaks comparable to any other fast food. They are "different" for sure, but don't expect an orgasmic experience as many hype them to be. Of course that's my opinion, gimme two cents.

Take a gander,
