I’m Not Looking for a New Gig …
Julie Chen Plays it Coy

Les Moonves could be boasting about all the money CBS just made under his leadership, but instead he’s insisting he’s done with the TV biz … for good.
We got the ex-CBS honcho and his wife, Julie Chen, Thursday night after their meal at Madeo in Bev Hills … and it was clear they’re gonna play things close to the vest. We asked Les about the great financial news his old network had just announced — revenues up about 3% in the 3rd quarter … essentially his final months before getting pushed out over sexual misconduct allegations.
Les was a man of few words, telling us, “I’m retired,” and it didn’t sound like he’s anxious to change that status. As for the ex-‘Talk’ cohost — we suggested she get back in the saddle, but watch the video.
The look on Julie’s face either says, “not interested”… or “I know something you don’t.”
Coy … it’s the Moonves family game plan.
