Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh Take a Jab at Les Moonves at Golden Globes


The quick moment, which was delivered to laughs among the Hollywood audience, came before the hosting pair introduced Kaley Cuoco, Jim Parsons and Johnny Galecki to the stage.


The move marked the official exit of Moonves from the entertainment industry, making him one of the largest figures to be ousted from the ranks of Hollywood in the #MeToo era.


As the chairman and CEO of CBS Corporation, Moonves oversaw shows ranging from 60 Minutes to Big Bang , which is now wrapping its run after 12 seasons.


After Ronan Farrow's New Yorker exposé on Moonves listed a half-dozen accusers in July, CBS hired an investigative team to examine the allegations.


Eighteen advocacy groups, including the Time's Up Legal Defense Fund, RAINN and the National Women's Law Center, were among the recipients of the $20 million that the network donated as part of its exit agreement with Moonves.


Moonves' wife, Julie Chen, stepped down from her position as co-host on CBS' The Talk as a result, but has stayed on as host of the network's reality series Big Brother .
