    No brainer decisions when it comes to renewing the entire CBS Daytime line-up, as CBS is the only network to even make an effort with daytime programming. Perhaps picking up B&B for two seasons will quieten chatter for some who ask “why does CBS always renew B&B one year at a time”?

    I salute CBS for launching the #NSFD campaign of YouTube videos. A play on the NSFW (not safe for work) meme, the campaign has so far been a “wink and a nod” at fans that CBS is not afraid to make fun of itself or the daytime genre (which can sometimes take itself too seriously). The fake commercial video with Pierson Fode (Thomas on B&B) is a good example…it looks more like a commercial spoof you would see on SNL or a sketch comedy series and is surprising suggestive in its content.
