Tracking the week's ups and downs in the business of entertainment.

UP: Leslie Moonves
The CBS CEO's 2010 salary jumps 30 percent to nearly $58 million. Between Moonves' haul and Viacom chief Philippe Dauman's $84.5 million package, Sumner Redstone doesn't seem like such a bad boss.

DOWN: Paul Reiser
NBC's The Paul Reiser Show debuts to just 3.3 million viewers, the Peacock's lowest-rated in-season comedy premiere ever. Yes, ever.

UP: Tina Fey
The 30 Rock maestro's Bossypants book debuts as a top 10 best-seller. Only the music biz remains unconquered.

DOWN: Brian Frons
The president of daytime at Disney/ABC Television Group pulls the plug on 40-year-old soaps All My Children and One Life to Live, becoming the most-hated man in retirement communities.
