It’s not hard to laugh, but across the board, daytime stars agree that it’s not easy to be funny! That being said, some of the industry’s most popular talent — “The Price Is Right’s” Drew Carey, “Let’s Make a Deal’s” Wayne Brady, and “The Talk’s” Aisha Tyler and Sheryl Underwood — certainly make it look easy to be hilarious day in and day out. Noticing the top-notch humor present in their daytime lineup, CBS decided to gather those said stars together at Hollywood’s legendary venue, The Comedy Store, to perform an evening of standup comedy benefitting a cancer charity. The result: CBS Daytime After Dark, Stand Up to Cancer — a fun event definitely worth smiling about!
America’s most watched network (CBS) and the second largest cable operator in the country (Time Warner Cable) are battling it out over retransmission fees and come Wednesday, July 24, fans of CBS’ programming including “The Young and the Restless,” “The Bold and the Beautiful,” “The Talk,” “The Big Bang Theory,” “2 Broke Girls,” and more could find their screens blackened if they live in:
Aisha Tyler (“The Talk”) and Wayne Brady (“Let’s Make a Deal”) are not only appearing daily in their successful CBS Daytime shows, but the two have also joined together to successfully re-launch “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” the former ABC series “where everything is made up and the points do not matter.” Now airing on The CW for a summer run, “Whose Line” averaged 2.9 million viewers and 1.1/4 in Adults 18-49 for its two-episode premiere last night according to TVbytheNumbers.
