  • '60 Minutes' executive producer Jeff Fager out at CBS

Chen did not address the news during the episode.

CBS Corp Chief Executive Officer Leslie Moonves resigned on Sunday amid a new wave of allegations against him of sexual assault and harassment uncovered in two New Yorker stories in the past two months. She took a brief break from "The Talk," a CBS show she co-hosts. Chen was originally scheduled to appear Monday on the season premiere of CBS's "The Talk", which she co-hosts, but chose to skip the talk show entirely, citing a need to "be with my family", The Washington Post's Emily Yahr reported.

Many on Twitter noticed Chen's subtle support for her husband.

Chen, 48, did not directly address any of the controversy surrounding her husband or his departure from CBS as chairman and CEO.

One person tweeted, "Now THAT was a statement ..."

Also, we wanted to finish the game strongly. "All of us, we weren't happy with the performance at halftime. The first half was quite predictable really.

Prior to Les" resignation, Julie released a statement saying "I have known my husband, Leslie Moonves, since the late "90s, and I have been married to him for nearly 14 years".

"I have known my husband, Leslie Moonves, since the late '90s, and I have been married to him for nearly 14 years", Chen wrote. In July, she posted a brief statement on Twitter, following The New Yorker's first report alleging Moonves harassed several women with unwanted kissing and touching and contributed to a toxic workplace culture at the network. "Welcome to double eviction night!" so the way in which she signed off was a strong statement that she's still proud to be Les' wife.

She posted a photo on Twitter of her holding a "Big Brother" reading card to tease her appearance on the episode. "I fully support my husband and stand behind him and his statement".

On Sunday, Moonves was sacked from his long-running position at CBS after new allegations surfaced of inappropriate behavior, including assault and sexual misconduct.
