CBS Corp. CEO Leslie Moonves was a no-show at the eye network's annual upfront press breakfast on Wednesday morning, as the company gears up for a fight in court with Shari Redstone.
"Les sends his regards," said Kelly Kahl, president of entertainment at CBS. "But the number of questions he couldn't answer outnumber the ones he could, so he thought it was a good idea to sit this one out."
CBS is completely revamping Monday nights, which this season saw its biggest declines. CBS was third on the night this year. "We don't like to be there," Kahl said.
