Les Moonves broke his silence on the Angus T. Jones "Two And A Half Men" controversy Tuesday in an interview with the "Wall Street Journal." The CBS Corp. president and CEO reflected on Jones' inflammatory video "testimonial" with the religious organization Forerunner Chronicles and joked that after Charlie Sheen's meltdown, this latest fiasco was "a piece of cake."

"I don't know what our status is with him," Moonves began in the video above. "We took this boy who started with us when he was eight years old, and it seemed to be what happens with child stars over the course of time. He's now making $300,000 per week, which is not a bad salary for a 19-year-old kid, and he went on a religious channel and urged people not to watch the show because it was filth. By the way, he's still collecting his $300,000 a week," Moonves quipped.
