Moonves: CBS Radio Sale Has Sumner Redstone’s ‘Full Support’

Sumner Redstone opposes Viacom’s plans to sell a stake in Paramount Pictures, but he’s on board with CBS’s plans to sell or spin off its radio division, according to CBS chairman and CEO Leslie Moonves.

The Eye in March announced it would explore a sale of the 117-station CBS Radio group. During the Q&A portion of CBS’s 2016 shareholders meeting Thursday in New York, Moonves was asked if that deal was contingent on the approval from Redstone (CBS’s controlling shareholder) or his representatives in light of his opposition to the Paramount proposal.

“Our situation with radio has absolutely nothing to do with Viacom,” Moonves responded. “We have received full support from Mr. Redstone with what we are doing” with the planned CBS Radio divestiture.

'Blue Bloods' Len Cariou dinner scene trick: 'If you're really clever, you don't have to eat at all'

As long as the members of television's Reagan family gather to eat each week, Len Cariou always will know where his next meal is coming from.

As patriarch and former New York police commissioner Henry Reagan, the stage and screen veteran is guaranteed his moment in every episode of the Friday CBS police drama "Blue Bloods." That's true even if Henry's relatives feed him in the hospital -- as happened one Thanksgiving -- and Cariou finds such scenes special for several reasons.

"We're usually done by lunch," he tells Zap2it. "Because of the kids, we film [those scenes] early. It's the biggest scene in any episode, so it usually takes the most time because you have to cover everybody film-wise. Everybody looks forward to it, though, because we have that time together every week."

Cariou believes those scenes appeal to viewers because "they all did this at one time in their lives,
