Time Warner Cable and CBS say they are trying to settle a fee dispute that has left three million customers without the network's programs.

A Time Warner spokeswoman say negotiations are ongoing. CBS says it expects talks to resume soon.

Neither side would say Saturday if there was a chance the standoff could end quickly.

Time Warner dropped CBS Friday in New York, Los Angeles, Dallas and several other cities. Each side is accusing the other of being unreasonable in a dispute over fees that Time Warner pays CBS to air programs.

Without a deal, Time Warner customers won't see CBS programs such as "Under the Dome." They'll also miss Tiger Woods trying for his 8th win at Firestone Country Club near Akron, Ohio. CBS is the nation's most-watched network.
