Paramount owns viacom too. If you look at recent TV shows (I don't know which ones however) their new logo is the Paramount mountain in a white rectangle with the cbs logo beside it. Or something like that.

The whole CBS/Viacom situation is a little complicated. They used to be all under one umbrella. Now CBS Corporation and Viacom Inc. are two separate entities. CBS Corporation includes the CBS network, the CW network, CBS Paramount Television, King World, Showtime, Simon & Schuster, and others. Viacom Inc. includes MTV Networks (MTV, VH1, Nickelodeon/Nick at Nite, Comedy Central, CMT, Spike TV, TV Land, and Logo), BET Networks, Paramount Pictures, Paramount Home Entertainment, DreamWorks, and Famous Music.

To answer studd911's question, Paramount Pictures is a subsidy of Viacom Inc. CBS Television Network is a subsidy of CBS Corporation.

To correct Geonsey, Viacom Inc. owns Paramount Pictures and Paramount Home Entertainment.

CBS Paramount Television is a production company under the CBS Corporation umbrella.

In other words, the Paramount that deals with the release of DVD sets, Paramount Home Entertainment, is not a part of CBS Corporation.

There. That should either clear up everything or cause a lot more confusion.

As long as the two are separate, the STAR TREK Rights and Licensing will continue to be a mess. Paramount holds only the film rights (well, technically or to be more specific, Star Trek was part of Paramount Television, but CBS now controls it), but lets CBS Consumer Products handle the film licensing; CBS Still holds the rights to new TV series, but is held back by Paramount not wanting a series on TV while the films are profitable. In effect, CBS and Viacom don’t compete with each other, since they have different content. Whereas CBS is focused on TV, Viacom is focused on movies. CBS Consumer Products handles all the TV era licensing as well.

Default Paramount TV Names Eben Davidson SVP of Development

Paramount TV is looking to expand its presence in the unscripted world. To spearhead those efforts, the company has hired Eben Davidson as SVP of development. Davidson comes from Viacom sibling Paramount Pictures, where he was SVP of acquisitions and production, working on films like Richard Linklater’s “Everybody Wants Some!!” and Charlie Kaufman and Duke Johnson’s Oscar-nominated animation joint “Anomalisa.” “With the tremendous success of our Emmy-nominated show ‘Grease: Live,’ we are committed to exploring new opportunities for compelling unscripted and live television events,” said Amy Powell, president of Paramount TV. “Eben has been an integral part of the Paramount family and we’re thrilled
