Les 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.
Carrie Fisher treated the Daytime Emmy Awards like an AA meeting at a comedy club -- cracking drug jokes about Ozzy Osbourne ... and nearly making us forget the slew of blunders and miscues during the show.
Most 17-year-olds feel pressure to get into a good college, but not Abigail Breslin ... the teenage A-lister has $100,000 riding on whether or not she can nab an Academy Award from her upcoming flick.
According to Abigail's minor's contract -- recently obtained by TMZ -- the lil star was paid $75,000 for two weeks worth of work on a film called "August: Osage County" shot last fall. It also stars Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts.
Now here's the interesting part ... in AB's contract a special clause was added just for awards ... which states if Abigail wins the Golden Globe for best supporting actress she nabs a $50,000 bonus.
There's more ... if Abigail wins an Oscar she gets ANOTHER $50,000. And if she wins both, they throw her the whole shebang. Plus all that other stuff like: respect, honor, esteem, ... yadda, yadda.
Of course with moves like these, it's in the bag ...
Philip Seymour Hoffman was all smiles at the 2013 Envision Awards in NYC yesterday ... the first major event the actor's attended since leaving detox for narcotic abuse 3 weeks ago.
Hoffman was clutching a bottle as he walked the red carpet ... but fear not, it was just some sparkling water.
We broke the story ... Hoffman entered a detox facility on the East Coast for a 10-day stint back in May ... in an effort to curb a drug problem that was spiraling out of control.
The 45-year-old Oscar winner had struggled with substance abuse in his early 20s -- but kicked the habit for 23 years -- only to fall off the wagon more than a year ago. PSH told TMZ the problems started with pills and escalated to snorting heroin.
Hoffman got treatment to nip the problem in the bud -- and went back to work on a movie a couple of weeks ago.
FYI -- Hoffman attended the event to honor Michael Barker and Tom Bernard, Co-Presidents and Co-Founders of Sony Pictures Classics (pictured above).
