Leslie Moonves, Chairman and CEO of CBS.

Don't let it get you down.

At least, that seems to be Leslie Moonves's strategy. The Chairman and CEO of CBS Corp. (CBS) didn't comment on the allegations against him that were raised by the New Yorker's Ronan Farrow in an exposé published last week. 

Earlier Thursday, the LA Times reported that the CBS board knew about a sexual assault investigation being conducted by the L.A. Police Department. 

Prior to the start of the earnings call, it was announced that Moonves wouldn't comment on the allegations and that CBS would not be taking any questions about the allegations. 

Shares of CBS were down over 1.3% in after-hours trading on Thursday as the entertainment giant missed analysts earnings estimates, but beat slightly on revenue.
