I know I just heard on the radio a snippett of CBS being bought by somebody - wasn't it Viacom? You never know what you're gonna hear or mishear. Something just bought CBS which would mean more cable channel access. No?
Viacom bought CBS in 2000, but it was a largely unhappy arrangement, with the two companies sometimes working against one another (which is still going on today). They parted ways in 2006, with Viacom getting the Paramount Pictures movie studio and CBS aquiring what was formerly known as Paramount Television (which included the rights to Star Trek).
