The modern Viacom doesn't own either company. The old Viacom is legally now the CBS Corporation, although that's a vast oversimplification. CBS Corp has total say on TV rights and merchandising.

CBS, not Viacom, retains control of the partial and total over-the-air television & radio broadcasting, TV production & distribution , publishing, pay-cable, recording, and outdoor advertising assets formerly owned by the larger company.

So Leslie Moonves has more power than we thought...
