CBS has officially impeached The Reagans. In a statement, the Eye network said its decision to pull the four-hour miniseries from its sweeps schedule was based "solely on our reaction to seeing the final film," and not the outcry from conservative groups. "We believe it does not present a balanced portrayal of the Reagans for CBS and its audience. Subsequent edits that we considered did not address those concerns." As expected, the telepic which stars James Brolin as the former president and Judy Davis as wife Nancy will air instead on sister pay-cabler Showtime.
