CBS to Pal With YouTube, Slingbox

Call this one of those annoying to-be-continued TV shows: While we don’t know what CBS will officially announce during Les Moonves’ keynote at CES Tuesday, we do know some of the people who will be joining him onstage as the big-eye network attempts to burnish itself with Internet sheen.

Courtesy of CBS corporate, the list of co-stars includes YouTube’s Chad Hurley; Sling Media CEO Blake Krikorian; Philip Rosedale, CEO of Linden “Second Life” Lab; and then some TV people, including Jennifer Beals from the L Word.

The 4:30 p.m. PST keynote will also include appearances by Anthony Zuiker of CSI, the College Sports TV crew and two guys named Opie and Anthony. While CBS loves its stars, we’re guessing the geek-heavy CES crowd will clamor most over Rosedale and Hurley.

CBS tipped its hat that CES would be all about the Internet with its dubious research report from last week; it may not announce anything new, since it already has a deal showing clips on YouTube and has played virtually in Second Life. Too bad there’s no Webcast!
