CBS, Showtime, CW TCA bash took place Sunday

Leslie Moonves is usually the center of attention at CBS parties, but at Sunday’s TCA bash for the Eye, Showtime and CW, there was a new sheriff in town — Ralph Lamb, the real-life inspiration for CBS’ new drama series “Vegas.”

The 80-something Lamb had a long receiving line of journos eager to talk to the man who helped tame Sin City in the early 1960s, and played now by Dennis Quaid. Also drawing a big crowd were Lucy Liu and Jonny Lee Miller of “Elementary” and “2 Broke Girls” stars Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs, who looked happy to be free of their waitress uniforms for the night.

At Friday’s ABC soiree, “Modern Family” co-creator Steve Levitan was talking about how the contract squabbles of show’s actors might delay production when the press told him the deal was done. Official news of the pact was delivered by an ABC publicist moments later.

News travels fast in TV land.

And on the kudos front, Saturday’s TCA Awards brought topline talent such as Claire Danes (“Homeland”) and host Bryan Cranston to the intimate invite-only affair. When “Breaking Bad” won for top drama, co-star Aaron Paul morphed into his grunge character Jesse Pinkman and let out a “Yo, bitches!” to sum up his delight.
