CEO Phillippe Dauman expects Viacom (VIA.B -1.4%) will enjoy stronger ad sales growth early in 2012, citing a "better tone" in the advertising market and less impact from a ratings decline at kids channel Nickelodeon. "As we look into the next quarter and beyond... Nickelodeon ad sales represent a much smaller percentage of our overall ad sales," Dauman says.
