Eisner does double take

NEW YORK — Michael Eisner will counterprogram himself Sunday. The Disney topper will fill his customary role introducing “The Wonderful World of Disney” on ABC, where the theatrical “The Santa Clause” will appear. Meantime, he’ll make a rare TV-interview appearance on CBS, where “60 Minutes” correspondent Lesley Stahl chats him up on Southern Baptist boycotts of the company for, among other things, its gay-friendly policies, alleged religious revisionism and sexual references in its animated films. Eisner calls the charges “ridiculous” and “nuts,” and says the company has suffered no financial impact from the boycott.
