Jan 25 (Reuters) - Viacom Inc, parent of cable networks MTV and Nickelodeon and movie studio Paramount Pictures, paid Chief Executive Philippe Dauman about $10 million less in 2012 than a year earlier, a regulatory filing showed.
Dauman was paid $33.4 million in the year ended Sept. 30, about 22 percent less than the $43.1 million he earned in fiscal 2011. ()
In 2010, he was paid $84.5 million in cash and stock, making him the highest-paid corporate executive in the United States.

The company said it achieved operating income growth of 5 percent compared with a year earlier, and a 21 percent increase in diluted earnings per share from continuing operations.
On Friday, Viacom shares gained 0.8 percent to close at $59.02 on the Nasdaq.
