If you've been pining away for CBS shows like "NCIS" and the "Big Bang Theory", you may just be a Time Warner Cable subscriber. 

Time Warner has blacked out CBS shows for the last two weeks as it fights over how much it should pay in fees for the right to carry CBS-owned channels. Several southern California residents have gotten fed up enough to file a class-action suit yesterday.

With more on this media saga is Alex Ben Block, senior editor for The Hollywood Reporter.
