Then there was a moment of absolute silence, I thought I might hear yells of the people inside, but just the opposite, it was silence.''The two dashed to the scene to offer help, keeping their distance in case the overpass collapsed further.The magnitude of the disaster on Monday night (May 3) began to sink in as Ramon watched some 20 victims carried out on stretchers.Since the metro's inauguration in 2012, Ramon saw the line as a blessing for her community.

Former CBS All Access was rebranded as Paramount+ on March 4 ViacomCBS outperformed media analysts’ expectations in the the quarter CBS All Access finally became Paramount+. Having the Super Bowl and the return of March Madness sure didn’t hurt. Wall Street had forecast earnings per share (EPS) of $1.22 on $7.3 billion in revenue, according to a consensus estimate compiled by Yahoo Finance. ViacomCBS actually posted adjusted EPS of 1.52 on $7.4 billion in revenue. Overall revenues rose 14% from the same quarter in 2020. Earnings were up 40 cents per share. ViacomCBS’ operating income was $1.5 billion. Super Bowl LV and the NCAA Tournament handed ViacomCBS an advertising revenue increase of 21%. Removing cable from the equation, where ad sales slipped 7%, advertising revenues jumped 40% at CBS and streaming. Streaming revenue rose 65% in the Paramount+ launch quarter. Pluto TV played a role in that as well. Paramount+ and Showtime now combine for 36 million global subscribers, the company said, an increase of six million. Theatrical revenue was way down to an immaterial amount, as you would expect amid the coronavirus pandemic. The filmed entertainment segment grew in revenue thanks to the licensing of content to streaming services, including Paramount Pictures’ own. “In Q1, we accelerated our expansion in streaming with the launch of Paramount+ further enhancing ViacomCBS’ ecosystem of premium, pay and free services,” ViacomCBS President and CEO Bob Bakish said in a statement accompanying the financials. “The strong consumer response we have seen is evident in today’s numbers – we have grown global streaming revenue 65 percent year-over-year and we added 6M global streaming subscribers, driven by Paramount+, to reach 36M streaming subscribers globally. In addition, we now have almost 50M global Pluto TV MAUs. Our early momentum in streaming is a testament to the breadth and relevance of our differentiated offerings, as well as our opportunities for growth through Paramount+, as we continue to ramp the availability of live sports, original series and blockbuster movies over the course of the year. ViacomCBS also achieved another strong quarter of results in our advertising and affiliate businesses, which continue to demonstrate the extraordinary power of our company to reach audiences and deliver for our partners globally.” ViacomCBS stock closed Wednesday at $39.10 per share. The U.S. stock markets will reopen for regular trading at 9:30 a.m. ET. ViacomCBS executives will host a conference call at 8:30 a.m. ET to discuss the quarter in greater detail.

ViacomCBS platforms are up 6 million subs from the end of February ViacomCBS hit 36 million global subscribers combined between its streaming platforms, primarily Paramount+ (which was recently rebranded from CBS All Access) and Showtime’s OTT platform, in the first quarter of 2021, the company reported Thursday. That’s up from the 30 million subscribers worldwide that ViacomCBS said it had across CBS All Access and Showtime at the end of February, just ahead of the March 4 debut of Paramount+. Per ViacomCBS, that subscriber growth in the quarter ended March 31 was led by Paramount+, where “the biggest drivers of sign-ups were live sports and specials, including the Super Bowl, NCAA Tournament, UEFA Champions League, Oprah with Meghan and Harry and The Grammy Awards, as well as kids’ content, including programming from the SpongeBob universe and iCarly, and original programming, including The Stand and Star Trek: Discovery.” ViacomCBS’ says its original programming, content from cable brands and Paramount movies drove almost half of Paramount+ subscriber engagement. And globally, Nickelodeon programming was an even more “significant” factor in signups and engagement. Meanwhile, Showtime OTT “delivered its best quarter ever in sign-ups, streams and hours watched,” according to ViacomCBS, record attributed to streaming of original series “Your Honor” and “Shameless.” ViacomCBS did not break out domestic Paramount+ and Showtime OTT subscribers, a mark that was at 19.6 million on Feb. 24. Meanwhile, Pluto TV now has nearly 50 million monthly active users globally, rising from 43 million on Feb. 24. Before CBS All Access became Paramount+, ViacomCBS said it expected to reach 65-75 million global subscribers between Paramount+ and Showtime by 2024.
