It’s now known as Paramount Global, and it’s the parent of CBS, in addition to cable TV brands including Nickelodeon and MTV.

The company led by President/CEO released its first quarter 2022 earnings on Tuesday, and by all accounts the focal points for growth are in the Direct-to-Consumer arena. From Pluto TV to Paramount+, there are user number increases. “The first quarter once again  demonstrated the power and potential of Paramount’s unique assets and the company’s continued momentum,” company head Bob Bakish said.
