When CBS Executive Vice President, Daytime Programs, CBS Entertainment, Angelica McDaniel started off Tuesday with a tweet stating it was a “Big Day”, fans on social media did not know what was about to go down.

But it was a major day indeed for Angelica and the shows of the CBS Daytime programing line-up of: The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful, The Talk, The Price is Right and Let’s Make A Deal.

The Los Angeles City Council proclaimed September 20th as “CBS Daytime Day” in honor of the network’s accomplishments for being 30 years consecutively as the number one daytime network.  CBS ended the full 52-week 2015-2016 broadcast year again at the top, a position it has held since 1986.

On hand for the Los Angeles ceremony today were Y&R stars, Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki) and Kristoff St. John (Neil), along with Y&R and B&B co-creator, Lee Phillip Bell, as well as B&B cast members, Don Diamont (Bill) and Heather Tom (Katie), plus ‘Price is Righ’t host, Drew Carey.  Watch the news segment via CBS Los Angeles here.

McDaniel shared in a statement: “This winning streak is an incredible source of pride for all of us at CBS. It speaks to three decades of great storytelling from the best creative artists in front of and behind the camera, and the amazing support from a very passionate and loyal fan base.”

For the soaps in the CBS line-up 2015-2016 broadcast season, Y&R retained its title of daytime’s most watched drama, with 5.20 million viewers, and highest-rated in the key womens demos of  25-54 (1.8) and women 18-49 (1.2).  And its sister soap, The Bold and the Beautiful ranked second among daytime dramas viewers with 3.96 million viewers and women 25-54 (1.5).

CBS soaps anyway, way way way overrated ! #Baffled

Patrick

give the benefit of a doubt

when Billy Miller and Michael Muhney left or were erroneously fired… their final scenes aired January, 2014

which is ALMOST 3 YEARS AGO

Y&R has never recovered

save for Justin Hartley… and that’s out of sight out of mind

Soapluv2010

Y&R is #1. Muhney is unemployed. Hunter King has two jobs,. Daytime and Primetime. That’s the rreality. Divine order.

su0000

———- Question;

How many soaps were there during the past 30 years?????

And- was there not one, not one, that was better than Y&R during 30 yrs, if even for a year?.

Why has there never ever been another soap at the top?
Why has there not ever been 2 years out of 30 that another soap was on top?

Last question;
What are the odds during 30 years of many soaps not one was ever atop of Y&R, for even a year or two? what are the odds .

Patrick

List of U.S. daytime soap opera ratings, wiki ( type in )

gives every listing and ratings of every serial

WOW

gobsmacked to the gills

As The World Turns… turned an reigned for quite a NUMBER @ #1. YES

which is my only #1 soap… evah

you could clearly see the reign… of GH in the 80s
and yawn… nevertheless… groan Y&R took

so… YES… @su to not quite answer your question… but the whole enchilada and cake

my DAYS had it’s best years… (ratings wise ) from 1995 -2003 always in the top 3

su0000

but– the fact is;
During 30 years only Y&R was #1 ..
No other soap in 30 years was #1, not even once, not even for 1 year.
Y&R holds the record of being #1 for 30 years.

what are the odds of that… huh

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

oltl was great in its final year and with ratings up-had it not been cancelled it might had hit number one!!!

john

I think the last soap that was #1 was Days when Jack and Jennifer got married.

Mo

Fabulous episodes. Still some of my favorite.

The first time they got married. 🙂

Mo

Congrats.

I don’t think the CBS soaps have really been number 1 for 30 years. I just think even when the soaps weren’t good, people watched out of habit.

There were certainly times when Another World, Santa Barbara, One Live to Live, General Hospital, and Days of Our Lives deserved to be number 1, but weren’t. Only naming soaps I’ve watched.

Soapluv2010

The numbers are more accurate now than they’ve ever been because we have reall time counts and real reporting instead of extrapolation and polling. GH is my favorite but, Y&R is numer one. It’s not debatable. It’s just the truth.

Mo

I’m not debating the numbers. I meant, substance–I don’t think CBS soaps have been the best soaps for 30 years straight.

Mary SF

Let’s not forget CBS DAYTIME has been number one for 30 years– in those 30 years there were other soaps on that network that help them achieved that feat– it wasn’t all just Price is Right, Y&R and B&B–

Days Of Our Lives

The Chew Cancelled After 7 Seasons; A Slice Of Justice For All My Children Fans?

Karma is a bitch! ABC announced yesterday that the foodie series The Chew has been axed after seven seasons. 

The Chew lost significant viewers when ABC fired main co-host chef, Mario Batali after reports of alleged sexual harassment over many years. Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, and Michael Symon have remained the regular series hosts.

In addition, The Chew dropped 17% with women in the 18-49 demo and this has been its least watched season since its debut in 2011.  As ABC Daytime fans know, The Chew replaced iconic soap opera All My Children, when ABC made the decision to cancel the beloved soap and replace it with the food show.

So, let’s take a look at the numbers: All My Children lasted 41 years, while The Chew lasted 7 seasons. Hmm …

ABC noted that The Chew will cease production at the end of this season, but will continue to air until September with all-new episodes in June.  In addition, ABC announced that Good Morning America will expand to three hours.  Thus, switching up the ABC morning line-up.

So, are you glad that The Chew got fried?  Is this justice for All My Children fans who miss their beloved Pine Valley?  Comment below.
