Every morning Charlie Rose introduces the rapid-fire video montage that opens CBS This Morning with the words, “Your world in 90 seconds.” Using news video and sound bites from CBS and other sources, including a sprinkling of one-liners from late-night comics, the Eye Opener has become CTM‘s visual trademark.
