CBS This Morning premiered in late 1987 with co-hosts Harry Smith and Kathleen Sullivan, a former news anchor on Good Morning America. The lone holdover from the previous incarnation was the weatherman, Mark McEwen. While CBS remained stuck in third place, the show did improve upon the ratings lows set by The Morning Program. This first incarnation of CBS This Morning would remain on the air for twelve years.
