TCA: Stealth Moonves at TCA

POSTED BY JOSEF ADALIAN

Ninattca_2Jeff Zucker didn’t feel the need to check out Ben Silverman’s TCA debut Monday. But Leslie Moonves managed to lend CBS Entertainment prexy Nina Tassler (pictured left) some moral support today by catching her session with reporters — most of whom had no idea Moonves was in the house.

Moonves apparently waited until the house lights dimmed before sneaking into the back of the BevHills Hilton ballroom where Tassler met the assembled scribes Wednesday morning. And just as quietly as he arrived, Moonves was gone a few minutes after Tassler wrapped up her controversy- and blunder-free appearance.

Despite his elevated role, the Eye supremo still feels obligated to schmooze the nation’s TV press. He’s expected to be at the net’s all-star party Thursday night. We’re hoping wife Julie Chen will be there, too, with some fresh “Big Brother 8” gossip.
