News flash: Les Moonves can be intimidated. According to reports, CBS's fearless leader is considering dropping The Reagans, the network's upcoming four-hour miniseries about the former president. Scheduled to air on Nov. 16 and 18, the controversial project has come under fire from conservative groups who claim the movie casts Ronald and Nancy in an unflattering and inaccurate light. One scenario has Moonves dumping the telepic on sister pay-cabler Showtime. A decision is expected in the next couple of days.
