CBS' Les Moonves Salary Rises to $66.9 Million in 2013

DOWN: Leslie Moonves

A judge denies CBS' request for a restraining order to shut down "Big Brother" rival "The Glass House" (though the ABC show debuts to lackluster ratings and the legal case will continue).

In 2013, CBS stock rose 69 percent, outpacing the 30 percent made by the S&P 500.

Les Moonves earned $66.9 million in 2013 as CEO and president of CBS, up from $62.2 million a year earlier.

The executive's pay was disclosed in a regulatory filing on Friday.

In 2013, CBS stock rose 69 percent, outpacing the 30 percent made by the S&P 500.

Previously, CBS reported that in 2013 its revenue climbed 9 percent to $15.3 billion while net earnings rose 19 percent to $1.9 billion. 

"CBS continues to turn in stellar performances year in and year out, and none better than 2013," executive chairman Sumner Redstone said in February, when CBS posted its full-year results.

Redstone, a multibillionaire and one of the richest men in the world, earned $57.2 million at CBS in 2013, up from $31.3 million.

Joseph Ianniello, the COO for CBS, was paid $24.6 million, up from $12.2 million due in large part to soaring option awards.

Louis Briskman, president and general counsel, earned $9.9 million, down from $10 million, and Anthony Ambrosio, the chief administrative officer and chief human resources officer, was paid $4.1 million, up from $4 million.

In January, CBS' sister company, Viacom, where Redstone is also executive chairman, said that CEO Philippe Dauman earned $37.2 million in 2013, up from $33.5 million a year earlier.
