Squint past Leo DiCaprio dining with his manager, Rick Yorn, at Carbone in New York last night and you’d spot a boisterous group at the next table: Bob Bakish, the C.E.O. of Paramount Global; Chris McCarthy, president and C.E.O. of MTV Entertainment Group; Keith Cox of Paramount Network; David Glasser, producer of the Taylor Sheridan shows; and Sylvester Stallone, star of Sheridan’s upcoming Tulsa King. They were together ahead of an investor screening of the show earlier tonight—an event that, thanks to news that broke today, acted as a coronation of sorts for McCarthy.
