Well, definitely the best fireworks show of the night's broadcasts. Nice audio of the explosions coming from the side speakers. I like the less patriotic music. Personally, I think the aerial shots look great. Nice variety. Some trouble with raindrops on the lenses earlier, but that seems to be improving now.
Some out-of-focus and shaky close-up shots of the fireworks. Someone wasn't on their game. Wow, nice climax happening now.
Earlier, I had no idea Jennifer Hudson was so nice to look at. ;-) And i'd never seen red, white and blue clarinets before. Lol. Also, Michael Chiklis did OK as the host after a shaky start.
Anyway, overall, i'd give CBS a definite B+.
