CBS (Columbia Broadcasting System) is a US television network. The Muppet Show pitch reel was produced to sell the show to CBS, and featured frequent mention of the network, as well as showing its logo at the end of the pitch tape. Eventually, The Muppet Show was picked up as a production taped in association with the CBS Owned television stations, and sold in syndication.

The Children's Television Workshop offered Sesame Street to CBS, but they passed on it.[1]

The Great Muppet Caper and The Muppets Take Manhattan have both aired as part of The CBS Saturday Night Movie during the 1980s.
