EYE ON GROWTH: CBS Corp. Thursday "reported net income of $338 million, or 50 cents a share, up from $317 million, or 46 cents a share, in the same quarter last year." In N.Y., Brian Stelter notes, "What are by far the biggest parts of CBS, its broadcast network and syndication units, grew slightly in the quarter in part because of new online streaming deals and international deals." The smaller part that "includes Showtime and the CBS Sports Network grew more significantly, largely for the same reasons" (N.Y. TIMES, 11/4).
