Les Moonves on Cancellation of P&G Soaps: "Their Day is Over"


Anyone hoping to go over Barbara Bloom's head to make an appeal about the importance of soap operas to the CBS Daytime lineup needs to take a peek at this CNBC interview with Les Moonves. When reporter David Faber, whose wife Jenny is the daughter of Marie Masters who plays Susan on ATWT, according to Gawker.com, asks Moonves about cancelling As The World Turns, the media titan answers by flippantly saying the soaps had long runs but "their day is over", followed by a cackle that would impress the Wicked Witch from the Wizard of Oz.
