Check out the companies making headlines after the bell:
CBS stock rose 2 percent in the extended session on earnings and revenue that both exceeded analyst expectations, but the company's stock later gave up its gains. Full-year guidance remained below estimates and second-quarter guidance was weak.
The television broadcasting company said that its direct-to-consumer services are growing rapidly, bringing in substantial income and attracting younger viewers. Average rate per subscriber is also increasing.

Shares of Pandora Media surged more than 6 percent in extended trading. The streaming service company reported a loss that was smaller than expected and surpassed estimates on revenue. Strong advertising revenue helped boost its bottom line and total listener hours were also higher than expected.
Weight Watchers stock jumped more than 7 percent after the bell, following all-over positive earnings. The weight loss company's earnings and revenues were also higher than expected.
