CBS Execs Take Shots At The Competition

Per tradition, top CBS executives unveiled their fall schedule at an informal breakfast event this morning where they took some jabs at the other broadcast networks. A day after Jimmy Kimmel once again skewered CBS at the ABC upfront presentation, CBS Corp CEO Les Moonves had this to say: “I was very flattered when Jimmy Kimmel called us ‘smug motherfuckers. You don’t call somebody ‘smug motherfuckers’ unless they’re smug and they’re winning, so we’ll try to be a little less smug and a little more gracious, but that’s hard for me, as you know. But anyway, Jimmy, ABC is still going to finish fourth in 18-49.” To ABC: “If your late-night guy is the funniest you have, keep him there as long as you can.”
