CBS is daytime television’s most popular network, and after today’s announcement that they have garned the most Daytime Entertainment Emmy Award nominations of any network (broadcast, cable or otherwise), the network has plenty to gloat about.
If you thought Oprah Winfrey giving away cars was a big deal, wait until you see what CBS Daytime has in store for the week of April 22 through the 26, when “The Talk,” “The Price Is Right,” and “Let’s Make a Deal” participate in the network’s exciting Big Money Week!
To kick off the major moolah event, “The Price Is Right” host Drew Carey and “Let’s Make a Deal” host Wayne Brady are joining up for a live online chat on CBS.com, which will take place on Monday, April 22 at 2:00 PM, ET/11:00 AM, PT.
For the week of April 1-5, 2013, CBS’ Daytime lineup consisting of “The Young and the Restless,” “The Bold and the Beautiful,” “Let’s Make a Deal,” “The Price is Right” and “The Talk” increased its total viewing audience year to year and in most key adult demographics.
As previously reported, the very popular #CBSTweetWeek is back for the forth time since its inception in 2011, and some of the networks biggest stars and creative talent are signing on to Twitter to chat live with fans. This marks the very first time stars from “The Bold and the Beautiful” and “The Young and the Restless” are participating!
Looking at how daytime television has become the pre-primtime of the entertainment landscape in more ways than one, Variety.com, now part of Penske Business Media, LLC (owners of Deadline.com and TVLine.com), has highlighted several of daytime’s biggest stars in front of and behind the scenes who help make the daily drama, the fun & games and the topics of discussion millions of viewers tune into each and every weekday.

Per a press released issued just a short time ago, CBS’ daytime lineup consisting of “The Young and the Restless,” “The Bold and the Beautiful,” “Let’s Make a Deal,” and “The Talk” have posted week-to-week rating growth post Pope interruptions.
Note: Ratings for the shows are for the week ending Sunday, March 24.
On Tuesday, March 26, CBS’ “The Young and the Restless” will celebrate its 40th anniversary and in honor of the event, stars from the daytime drama series will be popping up on multiple CBS Daytime programs.

In a press release issued by CBS, the network is touting the ongoing solid performance of its daytime lineup consisting of “The Bold and the Beautiful,” “The Young and the Restless,” “Let’s Make a Deal,” “The Price is Right” and “The Talk.” During the 2013 February Sweeps ratings period, each series increased in Total Viewers, as well as in the various women demographics from their same performance during the February 2012 Sweeps ratings period.
Millions of viewers were shocked when the power went out during tonights Super Bowl XLVII (or Super Bowl 47 for those not up-to-date with their Roman numerals) game between the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. CBS issued a statement on the matter, but has sadly remained mum on its decision to ignore viewers of CBS Daytime programming, which remains #1 in its daypart via “The Young and the Restless,” “The Price is Right,” “Let’s Make a Deal,” “The Bold and the Beautiful” and “The Talk.”
As expected, CBS has renewed its entire daytime lineup that consists of “Let’s Make a Deal,” “The Price is Right,” “The Young and the Restless,” “The Bold and the Beautiful” and “The Talk” for the 2013-2014 television season.
While “Y&R” had previously been renewed for the 2013-2014 season, “B&B” was awaiting a pickup that would keep the series in production and on the network. Previously, “B&B” was only renewed through the end of the current 2012-2013 television season.
