Stocks V / Viacom, Inc.

Since my husband worked for Westinghouse before the migration to CBS and VIA, we own some VIA.B stock. When we bought the stock, we knew what Westinghouse did and we liked most of it. Although we are very happy our shares have appreciated so much, what we know of Viacom is limited, and we're not all that thrilled with what we do know (World Wrestling, MTV, CBS).

Aside from the fact that the stock is hovering around $70 this week, are there other aspects of Viacom that a couple of "engineering types" could get excited about? Or should we just be thankful that most people watch more than an hour of TV each week?

Appreciate any thoughts people may have.
