CBS Paramount Domestic Television (CPDT) was an American television distribution company/production that was formed on January 17, 2006 and owned by CBS Corporation, which existed mainly as an interim transition company shortly after the split of the original Viacom into the current Viacom and CBS Corporation, where CBS took the majority of Viacom's broadcast television assets, including Paramount Television.
The company distributed television series from Desilu Productions, Paramount Television, Viacom Productions, Republic Pictures Television, Big Ticket Television, CBS Productions (pre-1982 series), Spelling Television, DreamWorks Television (after Viacom acquired DreamWorks), Group W Productions, its own series, and the film libraries from Paramount Pictures, DreamWorks (distributed in association with Tribune Entertainment), Republic Pictures and CBS movies, among others.
On September 4, 2006, CBS Corporation announced that King World and CBS Paramount Television's broadcast syndication operations would be combined to form CBS Television Distribution. Roger King was announced as the CEO of the new group.
CPDT kept its on-screen identity for its television programs until August 20, 2007 when CBS Television Distribution's logo debuted on Entertainment Tonight.

Famous quotes containing the words television, domestic and/or paramount:
“They [parents] can help the children work out schedules for homework, play, and television that minimize the conflicts involved in what to do first. They can offer moral support and encouragement to persist, to try again, to struggle for understanding and mastery. And they can share a childs pleasure in mastery and accomplishment. But they must not do the job for the children.”
—Dorothy H. Cohen (20th century)
“We all haveto put it as nicely as I canour lower centres and our higher centres. Our lower centres act: they act with terrible power that sometimes destroys us; but they dont talk.... Since the war the lower centres have become vocal. And the effect is that of an earthquake. For they speak truths that have never been spoken beforetruths that the makers of our domestic institutions have tried to ignore.”
—George Bernard Shaw (18561950)
“If all political power be derived only from Adam, and be to descend only to his successive heirs, by the ordinance of God and divine institution, this is a right antecedent and paramount to all government; and therefore the positive laws of men cannot determine that, which is itself the foundation of all law and government, and is to receive its rule only from the law of God and nature.”
—John Locke (16321704)
