Later than what was expected, but officially official:

Quote
CBS and Viacom have agreed to merge, ending years of on-and-off talks.

The new company will be called ViacomCBS, and Viacomís CEO, Bob Bakish, will be the CEO of the combined company. Joe Ianiello, who was serving as CBS CEO since last year, will be the chairman of CBS and will be in charge of CBS assets after the merger.

I thought that when we fought, I was to blame
Now I know you play a different game
I've seen you dance with danger; still wanting more
Add another number to the score

Keep an eye on whoís in charge of what. Within a year, itís very likely there will be NO revenants of the Moonves era at CBS in the corporate suite of ViacomCBS. (And with Julie Chen Moonves contract being up in September and the cancellation of all four CBS drama summer series, itís quite likely the summer schedule will be quite different. (Love Island is a post-Moonves series.)

Joe Ianniello (current CBS CEO) will remain in his position, but will just report to the ViacomCBS CEO now. Also, I read on Deadline that Love Island was Les Moonves' last CBS pick up.

CBS & Viacom will merge in December!

https://tvtonight.com.au/2019/10/cbs-viacom-to-merge-by-december.html

What does it mean for you Yanks and it could very well effect Network 10 over here in Australia, which airs Australian Survivor and TAR Australia...
I enjoy ''The Big Three' Reality TV shows!
