On first mover advantage

The entry for CBS in wikipedia includes the text:

It has also been called the "Tiffany Network", which alludes to the perceived high quality of CBS programming during the tenure of its founder William S. Paley (1901–90).[1] It can also refer to some of CBS's first demonstrations of color television, which were held in a former Tiffany & Co. building in New York City in 1950,[2] thus earning it the name "Color broadcasting system" back when such a feat was innovative.

In fact, CBS was the last among the major networks to implement full color broadcasting. [The point made in an episode of Mad Men.]
