CBS Corp. CEO Leslie Moonves is willing to bet that his network’s “CSI: Miami” will still beat Jay Leno’s upcoming prime-time talk show in the ratings “by a lot,” the Hollywood Reporter says. “I’m here to tell you the model [for prime-time TV] ain’t broke,” Moonves said of NBC’s decision to give Jay Leno five hours of prime-time real estate in the fall, the trade says. Moonves, who spoke at the UBS conference in New York on Wednesday, also said, “For us, it wouldn’t be a good move. We are winning four of five nights at 10 p.m.,” according to the Reporter.
