CBS, the top-rated network in Daytime with audience growth across the daypart, has renewed its entire daytime schedule for the 2013-2014 season! That comes as good news for fans of The Bold and the Beautiful, whose pick-up was anticipated but not confirmed until today!  The number one soap of them all, The Young and the Restless,  previously had received a pick-up as part of a multi-year deal!

In addition, the fastest-growing daytime talk show, The Talk, daytime’s most-watched program, The Price is Right and game show, Let’s Make A Deal were all renewed!

Nina Tassler, President, CBS Entertainment stated in the official press release:  “Over the past few years, we have successfully transitioned our daytime schedule to a balance of program genres with new creative energy, while maintaining our ratings leadership. Wee are proud of CBS’s history of quality and leadership in Daytime, thrilled with our current success and we look forward to more great things ahead from the outstanding creative talent in place at each of the shows.”

Angelica McDaniel, Senior VP Daytime, CBS Entertainment stated: “I am excited and energized by the pickup of our lineup for next season, which features a balanced mix of talk, game shows and drama.

This line up has work for them for years, why mess with success? The Talk benefited from strong lead ins otherwise it might have floundered. So yeah, if I was CBS I wouldn’t change a thing– it is obvious their mommas didn’t raise no fools.

I was an ABC soap viewer until the cancellation of AMC & OLTL. I began watching The Young and the Restless when AMC last aired. And started watching The Bold and the Beautiful with the last episode of OLTL. It seems like a no brainier that daytime soap viewers will watch daytime soaps but I am still surprised that ABC didn’t consider the consequences of their cancellations. Glad CBS realizes what gems they have and give diversity in their daytime lineup. I hope ABC has learned its’ lesson and will keep GH on the air. It’s my favorite soap

CBS is full of just that…BS. Since they let my show “As The World Turns” go, after faithfully watching for over 30 years, I have switched to ABC. General Hospital is getting better all the time. I know ABC also kicked some beloved soaps to the curb, but mine was kicked first… and it’s not coming back online…at least as far as I know. I miss it damn it!! I’m so glad to see All My Children and One Life To Live get new lives. I just never got into them myself. I was true to CBS until they fed… Read more »

I miss ATWT, too. But CBS had to do what it needed to funding wise. As screwed up as it is to believe, I understand their decision. Plus, P&G wanted out of the soap realm.

congrats to the talk’s renewal! this is a triumph for julie chen especially after the news that cnn doesn’t think ann curry can carry her a primetime tv show. there are reports that zucker doesn’t want curry but this is the same guy that thought couric’s daytime talk show would be a ratings hit and yet it’s a flop. ann curry must be at a disadvantage bec she’s an Asian american female! this is exactly the product of hollywood and the mainstream manhattan media’s racism and whitewashing against Asian americans! they don’t give opportunities to Asian americans as leading chars… Read more »

I’m not even going to dignify bc’s comments. He/she always goes on their “Asians don’t get no respect” rant every fricking time there’s an avenue for he/she to put their idiotic comments out.

Ugh!

I agree Michael and like I have said before don’t watch it if it is going to upset you you watch shows for enjoyment not to go crazy. I would also add why are we so hung up with color sexual preference etc. just enjoy your life.

hypothetically pretend that ellen degeneres does not have a daytime talk show. then a hollywood executive told the press that ellen can’t carry her own talk show. the mainstream manhattan media and hollywood and entertainment press and glaad would say that hollywood executive is being homophobic bec he’s implying degeneres can’t carry her own talk show bec she’s openly lesbian. lgbt complaints are aplenty regarding representation and discrimination. all the mainstream manhattan media and hollywood keep preaching abt lgbt causes like same gender marriage and anti gay bullying. other racial minorities should do the same and not be silenced by… Read more »

and btw the lack of representation still happens on primetime soaps w/ African american chars. the writers of “deception” have spoken abt how they’re not considering how Joanna was affected when she was growing up as a black female among her mother’s white employers. i’m guessing the writers don’t wanna go there. here are some of the statements of deception’s heldens on racial issues: “It is a way to sort of deal with race without actually having to talk about it” “But it’s not really something we talk about too much in the writers’ room” “Why it’s not a discussion?… Read more »

“the fastest-growing daytime talk show, The Talk”

Are you kidding me Micheal. The Talk has the same ratings as The Chew, and sometimes even slightly lower ratings than The Chew. There’s nothing there about a “fastest-growing daytime talk show”.

If you want a real fast growing show, let’s talk about GH. It went from 2,2 million to more than 2,8 million in just a matter of months. I dare The Talk to achieve this.
