Les Moonves, in his own words, on having Neil Patrick Harris and/or Joel McHale on future CBS TV series

CBS Corp. President and CEO Les Moonves set the record straight — sort of — appearing on Bloomberg News on Thursday afternoon, responding to reports, rumors and innuendos regarding the future of Neil Patrick Harris and Joel McHale with CBS.

Moonves said his previous meeting with NPH was a general discussion, no offers on the table. But today? Yes, sure, Moonves would love to be in business with Harris. “We’d love to have Neil back in the family in any way he wants to do it — variety, do another comedy, you know, who knows?” he said.

Who knows, Les? You know.

Roll it.

Here’s the full interview, in which he also says that his rendezvous with Joel McHale the other night (Tweeted by Moonves’s wife, Julie Chen) was happenstance and only led to casual conversations. For now.
