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).

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

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

———- 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 .

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)

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

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

Fabulous episodes. Still some of my favorite.

The first time they got married. 🙂

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.

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.

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

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–

Jussie Smollett Scenes Cut From ‘Empire’ In Light Of Attack Investigation

As of Tuesday, the production of Fox’s hit series, Empire has slashed Jussie Smollett’s upcoming scenes following reports that the suspicion is now on him for allegedly staging the “hate” attack he reported to the Chicago PD back on January 29th.

According to production sources viaTMZ: Jussie was supposed to have nine scenes and a big musical performance in the second-to-last episode of Season 5,  Now, five scenes and the musical number have been axed.  Smollett’s character is also no longer the focus of his remaining four scenes, which will now feature an ensemble of characters.

The actor/singer who portrays Jamal Lyon will be working Friday and possibly Thursday but won’t be rehearsing.

The Empire writers are said to have been scrambling over the last 24 hours to revise this season’s scripts.

All of this despite despite strongly expressed renewed support by Empire showrunner Brett Mahoney on February 17th.  The goal now is said to be to reduce Smollett’s role both in dramatic stints and musical performances.

Empire returns for the remainder of its fifth season on March 13.

Smollett claims he was the victim of a racist and homophobic attack near his Chicago apartment, but things took a turn when he may have paid two friends to help stage the assault.

This case is said to be going before a Grand Jury as early as today.

What are your thoughts on the latest developments in the Smollett case and Empire reducing his appearances for the remainder of the season? Comment below.

TODAY: Y&R’s Melody Thomas Scott Visits ‘The Talk’ As Her 40th Anniversary Week As Nikki Newman Kicks-Off

On today’s broadcast of the CBS afternoon series, The Talk, the ladies welcome Y&R icon, Melody Thomas Scott, who this week celebrates her incredible 40th anniversary with the show as Nikki Newman.

During her segment, Melody chats on Wednesday’s upcoming standalone episode where Nikki is in jail reflecting on her life.  Wednesday is also the exact date of Thomas Scott’s 40th anniversary with the CBS Daytime drama series.

During the segment Melody fills the ladies in on the “All About Nikki” episode, as she relates:  “I was so thrilled that they did this. It’s truly, really the life of Nikki in the entirety of the episode. It’s all about Nikki. And she’s in jail. She’s writing a letter to her grandchildren so that she can explain who she really is, how she got to where she is.  I have to narrate it, I’ve got a voice-over, a long voice-over. And then, as I’m thinking about all these different times in my life, I can’t believe I’m referring to me as her, her life, then we see the flashbacks. And for the longtime viewers, even current viewers, it is such a trip down memory lane. I mean, you are on that train and you’re not getting off…all of the clips have not been seen since they were first aired.”

In addition, Melody addresses the passing of her longtime co-star and friend, Kristoff St. John relating:  “I adored him. We all adored him. There was something very unique and magical about him. He would just draw you into his wonderful world. And all of his bear hugs, I can’t believe I’ll never get a bear hug. Going to any kind of event, any party, the first thing I said when I got there was ‘Where’s Kristoff?’ I want to find Kristoff, I want to be with him, I want to be in his air space. Because that’s the kind of guy he was, and I think that came through on camera. I think everybody sensed that, I mean everybody adored him.”

So, will you be checking out Melody on today’s episode of The Talk (2PMEST and 1PM PST) today? Comment below.
