(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — "As The World Turns" is set to air its final episode on Friday, September 17, and the show replacing it, "The Talk," isn't set to debut until Monday, October 18, so what does CBS plan to air for the four weeks in between? Soap Opera Network has the schedule.

Beginning Monday, September 20, episodes of CBS' remaining lineup including original broadcasts of "The Price is Right" and "Let's Make a Deal" along with repeats of top ranked "The Young and the Restless" will air in the 2:00 PM ET/1:00 PM PT period currently occupied by the departing "As The World Turns." According to CBS, the repeat airings of "Y&R" will include "episodes that are emotionally relevant to current stories," which is code for shows that aired in the recent past. Knowing how ABC does their "relevant to current stories" repeat airings, it is presumed that the network will be airing episodes following the upcoming death of a major character and its subsequent episodes which includes a military salute to said character at their funeral.

Due to their game show nature, CBS is able to order new episodes of "Let's Make a Deal" and "The Price is Right" without much prep-time. The same can not be said for daytime soaps such as "Y&R" or "The Bold and the Beautiful," which need months of preparation before a new episode airs on the network. Therefore, CBS will be airing original episodes of both game shows and "Y&R" during their regular time slots in addition to the originals (repeats for "Y&R") airing in the soon to be vacant time slot.

What follows is the CBS schedule beginning September 20 through October 15, 2010 (all times eastern):
