Jim Cramer takes a look at whether or not Jerome Powell's job is safe, Adobe's (ADBE) - Get Free Report earnings and whether or not we're truly in the 'golden age of creativity' as Adobe's CEO claims, and finally, whether or not now is the time for CBS (CBS) - Get Free Report and Viacom (VIA) - Get Free Report to merge.
