CBS Honcho Les Moonves

The Daytime Emmys

Were a TRAIN WRECK

EXCLUSIVE

061813_les_mooves_launchLes Moonves knows good TV when he sees it -- but he can also spot a turd ... and the CBS honcho told TMZ the 40th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards show was a bona fide stinker.

Les had his own table at the award show Sunday night ... where he watched disaster after disaster unfold on the stage ... culminating with producers giving Aisha Tyler the WRONG ENVELOPE to open during the Best Talk Show presentation.

"You know what ... it wasn't a very well produced show and you can put that on the air," Moonves tells TMZ.

But there was a silver lining for Mr. Moonves -- check out the video to see why Les was THRILLED after the show.

What is with all the Spam mail showing up on all the threads? Can't TMZ Block these idiots? As for the Emmy s he's right...it was a train wreck! Mics off, cameras not working right, wrong envelopes, and the couch interviews were AWLFUL! She belongs on the food channel, not at the Emmys....worst daytime Emmy SHOW IN YEARS.

les, you should start by looking at your wife, and all the shows she's been on. If it weren't because she's married to you, Chenbot would be filing papers somewhere. Now there's a trainwreck!

Les Moonves appears to be a nice guy, especially since he takes the time to talk to the TMZ paps.

She's baaaack    

Amen. The channel was too busy hyping that semi-talented talking head woman who sounded like a decent karaoke bar singer and was completely full of herself. That interview couch thing was cringeworthy and totally ridiculous. The only reason I watched was to see the shout-out to Jeanne Cooper (yeah, I'm a long-time Y&R fan) and even though she was known to be a rather bawdy woman her son should have been slapped across the face by making her sound like some drunk bar slut. The whole show sucked.

I couldn't agree more w/Les Moones. This show was the absolute worst. The audience were even ignorant. They were talking when people were on the stage. A complete disaster. Whoever produced this show is on DRUGS....ewww

My High School Broadcasting students could have done a better job. A professional disaster.
