"Viacom interim Chief Executive Tom Dooley may be Sumner Redstone’s next “genius friend.” Redstone, who has a habit of describing top executives within his $40 billion media empire in hyper-glowing terms, is said to be behind keeping Dooley in the corner office beyond his interim status, The Post has learned. Dooley was named interim CEO last week as part of the deal that saw his former boss, disgraced ex-CEO Philippe Dauman, step down. The interim CEO post runs through Sept. 30. The former chief operating officer is frantically formulating a new long-term strategy for the troubled cable programmer, sources close to the matter said. Redstone is said to believe Dooley is a known quantity and has what it takes to turn Viacom around, sources close to the 93-year-old mogul said. “Everyone is committed to giving Dooley a real shot here,” the source said. However, both Redstone and his daughter, Shari, want the entire newly formed Viacom board", nypost.com

"A tipster says that Massachusetts Judge George Phelan is on the verge of a decision about whether Viacom CEO Philippe Dauman can overturn his ouster from the Sumner Redstone family trust and the National Amusements Inc. board, and keep his current position. Phelan’s decision will have a strong influence on how controlling shareholder Shari Redstone plays her poker hand. The master plan is obvious: Install a new Viacom board and dump Dauman to stop a selloff of Paramount, which is viewed as a poison pill against a potential acquisition of Viacom by an outside company. In addition to being open to a sale, the National Amusements team is game-planning a remerger with CBS. In the past, CBS Chief Executive Leslie Moonves has been highly vocal about his distaste for such a move. But he didn’t say anything of the sort at the recent Allen & Co. mogul retreat. Our sources say Moonves is not quite so against it as he was. “Never say never,” said an", nypost.com

"CANTON, Mass. — A lawyer for Viacom Chief Executive Philippe Dauman told a probate court judge here on Thursday that Shari Redstone was executing a cold-hearted plan to take over her father’s $40 billion media empire. In the latest episode of a long-running corporate drama, Dauman’s lawyer, Leslie Fagen, said Shari Redstone was exerting undue influence over her ailing 93-year-old dad — and that the decision to oust Dauman and others from the Viacom board should be undone. Dauman and Shari are locked in a months long battle for control of Viacom, parent of MTV, Nickelodeon, Comedy Central and other cable TV networks, and CBS — all controlled by the elder Redstone through his National Amusements Inc. holding company. NAI has moved to kick Dauman and ally George Abrams from its board and the board of Viacom. The two have not recognized the ouster as legit — and claim Shari unduly influenced Sumner’s decision. Dauman and Abrams moved", nypost.com
