Good way to pass time

Always fun, CBS is almost. Screening pilots to see what makes it to network. After opinions are given, you (at the very least) are given coupons for food and stuff to do at MGM... read more

This is what it says. It is a research centre and you are used to do their marketing. If you have plenty of time to kill and are interested in TV that's fine. I feel they are taking advantage of our time. You sit in a darkened room with several computers, watch a TV show then fill out a detailed... More

Always fun, CBS is almost. Screening pilots to see what makes it to network. After opinions are given, you (at the very least) are given coupons for food and stuff to do at MGM. Ask if they are doing focus groups, I've done apps and gotten $20 cash and shows for $50 cash for an hour of participation. A must... More

My family and I have been coming here several times a year for about 6yrs. They have officially lost me. Its no longer worth my time. The coupons they give you are coupons you can randomly get at the food court. The days of free Starbucks are gone. No more $10 CBS store credit. They gave me an expired Subway... More

The idea of rating a television show before potentially hitting network television sounded intriguing. We tried it out and it was what you expected (dark room full of tvs and computers, no talking, no drinking, professional environment). Expect to writer a long review with details for your answers. This experience took roughly 1.5 hours of our day so I am... More

Whenever I am in Las Vegas, I will generally stop by here at least once. I generally pass by after my day is over and I'm tired from all the walking that I did on the Strip since it gives me a chance to rest my feet for free, no one will really bother you, and you get to watch... More

It's FREE and it is kind of cool to give your opinion on prospective shows which will possibly be coming on CBS. It doesn't talk all that long and as I said it is kinda fun.

I came to Vegas specifically for this!. I was a little disappointed that I didn't get to watch brand new tv show and rate. For my visit, my family and I watched trailers of upcoming shows for CBS and ABC then give a review of the show. But our experimented was focused more on the ease of use for each... More

Neat chance to be a part of the previewing of possible new shows for CBS. We had the chance to view a new drama and give our feedback during and after the show. The entire start to finish was about one hour....and the bonus was getting paid $20 for our time.

There is a little store with items from your favorite CBS TV shows. However, they do screenings of possible shows coming up on CBS affiliated stations. Many different screenings available and some even pay you to watch the shows. We finally got to do it this trip. Other trips we didn't have time to so this time we had planned... More
