Les wants more.
CBS' top dog Les Moonves says the Tiffany Network's in "constant conversations with Oprah" about the status of her long-running syndicated program.
CBS' syndication arm distributes Oprah to TV stations nation-wide, including many ABC-owned outlets. The admission comes amid rumors that Oprah will decamp from Chicago for LA in 2011.
Oprah's contract runs through "most of 2011" and Moonves says "if there is a negative impact, it wouldn't hit us until 2012, and that's sort of where we are, and we are in dialogue."
Oprah's own show has also seen ratings declines over the last few seasons.
