Background: On March 4, 2013, Viacom president and CEO Philippe Dauman announced the relaunch of Paramount Television. The television series that have been recently announced are School of Rock, Galaxy Quest, Minority Report, a live Grease musical, the adaptation of the memoir Bettyville, Smoke Gets In Your Eyes, and a prequel to Shutter Island called Ashecliffe, the latter in association with HBO Entertainment.

1st Logo
(January 8-July 14, 2012)

Paramount Pictures (2012)Logo: Technically just an in-credit logo. We see the Paramount Pictures print logo with the Viacom byline in the "Wigga Wigga" font with "In association with" above the logo.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme of the program.

Availability: Ultra rare. Seen only for the short-lived series The Firm.

Scare Factor: None.

2nd Logo
(September 21, 2015-)

Logo: On the background of the current Paramount logo, We see the mountain already in the distance. Then, 22 stars encircle the mountain. At the
Paramount Television (2015)same time, one by one, the words "Paramount Television" zoom out to the top of the mountain. The Viacom byline fades in.

Trivia: The logo seems to be a call-back to the Paramount Television "Rising Circle" logo, such as the placement of "Television" to "Paramount" and both being above the peak of the mountain.

Later Variant: The logo was updated with the animation considerably slowed down.

FX/SFX: Like its movie counterpart, it has beautiful CGI.

Cheesy Factor: The formation of the logo seems to be rather choppy, and the Paramount Television text is off center. The duration of the logo was eventually fixed, which means the first version may have been a prototype.

  • The last part of the current Paramount Pictures fanfare.
  • Originally, it used the last five notes of the 1975 Paramount fanfare.
Music/Sounds: On Grease Live!, the fanfare is longer and is a majestic rearrangement of the normal fanfare.

Availability: Brand new. First seen on Minority Report.

Scare Factor: None. Although the reminiscent qualities of the logo may surprise some people, this is a noble effort to bring the Paramount name back to television.
