CBS Boss Takes Swipe at the Today Show


CBS boss Les Moonves used the Advertiser Scamming event known as the Upfronts to take a swipe at NBC and the struggling Today Show.

In taking about the CBS prime time lineup, Moonves said “We believe that great drama belongs in primetime between 8-11 PM, not at 7 in the morning.” He said that while a picture of a crying Ann curry was flashed on the screen behind him.


Never mind the fact that CBS has changed out more morning show anchors in the past 5 years than NBC and ABC combined, you never let the facts stand in the way of a good joke. 

 from Curry’s departure from “Today” appeared on stage behind him (see the photo to the left).

We can only say to Mr. Moonves, pick on the Today Show all you want, but don't be mean to Hoda and Kathie Lee. We love them.
