CBS chief Les Moonves took a break from fielding questions about the future of CBS, Viacom and Sony to check out a $2.2 million co-op in the East Village.

The media mogul reportedly toured a two-bedroom pad at 59 Fourth Avenue with his son, Adam, a co-owner of the trendy bar Mr. Fong’s in Chinatown, according to the New York Post.

The 1,900-square-foot apartment is asking $1,157 per square foot and comes with a $2,240 per month maintenance fee. With 13-foot barrel-vaulted ceilings and exposed white-brick walls, it’s located on the second floor of an eight-story, 15-unit building that was formerly a factory. The unit has poured-concrete floors and a chef’s kitchen.

The prior owner paid $1.445 million for the pad in 2011, property records show. It’s been on and off the market since 2014, when it was priced at $2.75 million. The last price chop was earlier this month.
