MTR meets deadline

Moonves, Bruckheimer honored at event

HOLLYWOOD — After last year’s Museum of Television & Radio gala ran on — and on and on — organizers made clear at the outset of the latest event, honoring CBS’ Leslie Moonves and producer Jerry Bruckheimer, that they knew the question on everybody’s minds — namely, “What time will this end?”

Fund-raiser wrapped around 9:40 p.m., meeting MTR prexy Pat Mitchell‘s pledge that attendees would be home in time for one of Moonves and Bruckheimer’s collaborations, “CSI: Miami” — provided, that is, they lived in the (310) area code. CBS thesps James Woods, Anthony LaPaglia, Marg Helgenberger and William Petersen all feted the men of the evening, with CBS News anchor Katie Couric joking that it was impossible to keep her contract negotiations quiet dealing with someone as “important, powerful and blabby” as Moonves.

For his part, Moonves dubbed himself “the most fortunate failed actor in the history of television,” while Bruckheimer cited his poor grades growing up, saying he could now tell his 101-year-old mother, “Mom, I finally got a good report card.”
