A tweet from Kaley Cuoco, co-star of CBS' "The Big Bang Theory," is making a big bang of its own.
Cuoco tweeted praise for Dish Network's new DVR called the Hopper as part of an endorsement deal with the satellite broadcaster. She said, "Amazing! Watching live TV anywhere on the #Hopper looks pretty awesome! Now where can I find a tiny beer? #ad"
Then the tweet disappeared and Dish accused CBS of ordering her to take it down. CBS is engaged in a legal fight with Dish over the commercial-skipping feature in its Hopper DVR.
"It is disappointing that CBS -- once the exemplar of editorial independence and innovation -- continues to use its heavy hand to hold back progress from consumers," Dish Chief Executive Joe Clayton said in a statement.
