So. Did you catch what CBS resident Head Guy Les Moonves said on CNBC not too long ago? (Side: What in the name of The Good Wife is a CBS executive doing on an NBC network?! The world has gone mad, I tell you! Mad!). It was fairly intriguing. It involved Aereo. And, most importantly, it may or may not be a whole Undercover Boss-load of smokescreen.

Our favorite weirdly named Internet television sensation is rolling out today in the mile-high city, joining Boston, Atlanta, Miami, Detroit, Houston, Salt Lake City, New York and Dallas as the Very Important cities that offer Aereo.
