FILE - In this combination of file photos Stephen Colbert, left, poses on Sept. 4, 2018, in New York and CBS president Leslie Moonves attends the CBS Network 2015 Programming Upfront at The Tent at Lincoln Center on May 13, 2015 in New York. Colbert is laying claim to the $120 million in severance that CBS' board of directors said wouldn't be paid to ousted former CEO Moonves - at least half of it. The late-night host joked, "the other half goes to Tom Selleck's mustache." Colbert didn't avoid his network's big news in Tuesday night's monologue on Dec. 18. Like many at CBS, Colbert owes his job to Moonves, who was forced out due to sexual misconduct allegations. CBS is denying him severance after an investigation backed up many of the charges and accused Moonves of trying to thwart the probe. (Photos by Andy Kropa and Evan Agostini/Invision/AP, File)
