As the New York Post‘s Tim Arango notes, Tuesday’s firing of Viacom CEO Tom Freston sent Viacom stock falling, and cost Sumner Redstone, at least on paper, roughly $113 million. [See the Post‘s nifty graphic above.]

Meanwhile, Freston is already fielding offers, the Los Angeles Times reports: “I want to get back in,” Freston said. “I’m open to anything.”

UPDATE: As of 4:00PM EST Viacom stock was trading at $34.30 per share, up $.10 — meaning Redstone’s $113 million loss … is still roughly roughly $113 million.
