CBS president Les Moonves gave "Masters of Sex" a nice mention at today's company presentation of its second quarter results:
"At our Cable Networks segment, Showtime continues to lead the way as we post stellar results quarter after quarter. The strength of our original programming is driving increases in rates and subscribers, which is now approaching the 22 million mark. Next month, we'd be premiering the highly anticipated second season of Homeland which recently received the most Emmy nominations of any new show, and also Dexter, which remains our top-rated series. In addition, we'll be debuting 2 exciting new dramas, Ray Donovan and Masters Of Sex early next year. We have ownership in both of those shows, and going forward, we will be increasing the Showtime content that we own whenever we can."
