Viacom will marshal its resources around six flagship networks: MTV, BET, Nickelodeon, Nick Jr., Comedy Central, and Spike, which will be rebranded next year as a premium Paramount channel. Paramount Pictures will not be going anywhere; in fact, the flagship networks will join forces with the iconic studio to produce one or two co-branded films every single year. The company still claims the highest viewership of any cable family in the United States.
These were among the core messages that our CEO, Bob Bakish, delivered to David Farber on CNBC’s Squawk on the Street following release of the company’s first quarter 2017 earnings yesterday. Watch the full conversation above, and click over to Viacom Investor Relations to read the press release or listen to the earnings call.
Once again, Viacom leads all cable families in total viewership, a full percentage point ahead of its nearest competitor. There’s a lot driving this continued strength, including Nick’s status as the king of kids’ programming, with 12 of the top 20 rated cable TV shows for kids between 2 and 11 airing on one of its networks. Viacom does well in all demos, though – several of our networks combine to make up fully half of the top 20 cable series for viewers 12 to 34.
The charts below spell out these viewership and ratings successes in more detail, but they show the company’s strong position as we report our Q1 2017 earnings today. For more business numbers, check out our Investor Relations page on viacom.com.
As we report our Q1 2017 earnings today, it’s fair to say that Viacom brands are killing it.
South Park, sharp and loud as ever in its 20th season, led all of TV in its time slot among male viewers, while Trevor Noah racked up his most-watched quarter since he joined The Daily Show behind his biting coverage of the presidential election and beyond.
We could go on, but it’s probably more fun for you to flip through the deck below to see what’s happening with all of our brands, from newly acquired Argentinian giant Telefe to Paramount Pictures to a surging MTV. We’ve also included clips from some of the upcoming projects we’re most excited about. For more business results, visit our Investor Relations page on viacom.com.
As Viacom reports fourth quarter and full-year earnings, there is great momentum driving many of our brands: The top reality show on cable, an enormous surge in VMA streams, the 20th anniversary of South Park, the continued surge in ratings at TV Land and VH1. Check out the details in the slides above.
Behind this strong programming, Viacom continues its long run as the most-viewed family of cable networks, with the most non-sports shows in the top 20 and more than half of the top children’s programs. We’ve also seen a surge in digital, mobile and social consumption:
There’s a whole lot coming up at Viacom over the next few months.
Paramount sends aliens hurtling from the cosmos and Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard back to World War II. Denzel Washington and Viola Davis dazzle in Fences while Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman burn down the city in Office Christmas Party.
Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg team up on VH1 – really – for what is likely to be the dopest cooking show around. America’s Next Top Model returns to the same net. We wave goodbye to MTV’s Teen Wolf, but meet a pair of bad-ass campus vigilantes on Sweet/Vicious.
Original content continues to rule across our networks, from TV Land’s smash hit Younger to CMT’s January debut of Nashville to BET’s Being Mary Jane and New Edition biopic. Spike delivers some hard truth with a documentary on the tragic story of Kalief Browder.
