Howard Stern takes aim at Emmys: 'They talk about Me Too, but they don’t talk about Les [Moonves]'

Monday night's Emmy Awards had Howard Stern rolling his eyes.

“It’s the Emmys. It’s about television. What’s the biggest story in television? The fact that the president of CBS had to resign," Stern said Tuesday on his namesake SiriusXM radio show. "Me Too is in the news. They talk about Me Too, but they don’t talk about Les. I mean, my goodness. That means they’re afraid of him."

Stern doubled down, adding, “To not make a joke, one mention? The guy was uninvited 24 hours before the Emmys aired, and there’s no joke about Les Moonves. The Emmys should’ve talked about it a little bit.”

Hosts Colin Jost and Michael Che did joke about the waterfall of sexual misconduct and assault allegations barraging Hollywood -- "It is an honor to be here sharing this night with the many, many talented and creative people in Hollywood who haven’t been caught yet," Che quipped -- but didn't target anyone by name.

Stern also expressed distaste for how Moonves' wife, Julie Chen, is handling the accusations against her husband.

“I hear in the news that Julie Chen resigned from the TV show 'The Talk,' and then you go, ‘Well, their show is called 'The Talk' but they don’t talk about this," Stern said. "Can you believe Julie sticking with him? What the f--k. It's just really weird. It's insulting to the victims."

Stern already openly disliked Moonves well before the recent fallout. In 2006, he appeared on "The Late Show with David Letterman" wearing an "I Hate Les Moonves" t-shirt -- a particularly bold move since "Late Show" airs on CBS.

“I believe you are working for one of the biggest jerks on the planet,” Stern told Letterman.

The Emmys aired not on CBS, but on NBC, a network which has also faced criticism from the #MeToo movement. In fact, just about every major network has suffered #MeToo-related blows over the past year: CBS with Moonves and Charlie Rose; NBC with Matt Lauer and reportedly spiking the initial Harvey Weinstein exposé; ABC with Mario Batali -- the list goes on.
