Nothing is more fun than networks taking shots at one another, since denigrating the competition helps your own business. But CBS’s corporate honcho Leslie Moonves seemed genuinely miffed hearing that both Meyer and Kimmel joked about CBS’s older audience, considered less valuable by advertisers. (“CBS is No. 1,” Kimmel said. “That’s mainly because their viewers can’t remember where they put the remote.”)

Moonves noted that CBS has done better than ABC and NBC in the youthful 18-to-49-year-old demographic.

“We’re a little tired of those old people jokes,” he said. “They don’t work anymore. And I might venture to say, we have hotter women on CBS than on any other network.”
