The Talk

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy: “The Price Is Right” has launched a national male model search of epic proportions! After sorting through hundreds of hopefuls found online and at casting calls in Boston, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Dallas and Spartanburg, South Carolina, the show asked 30 young men to come on down and compete to win a one-week modeling contract. The kicker: All of the excitement will be shown to fans via a special five-episode, reality-style web elimination series that begins next week!
On Friday, October 24, "The Young and the Restless'" newest stars, Scott Elrod (Joe Clark), Justin Hartley (Adam Newman), Burgess Jenkins (Billy Abbott) and Gina Tognoni (Phyllis Summers), will be appearing on CBS' "The Talk" to discuss their joining daytime's most watched drama series. The actors are expected to provide some insight into their characters and what life has been like since entering Genoa City.
As previously reported, everyone loves CBS' "The Young and the Restless" and the year-to-year growth in Total Viewers, Women 25-54 and Women 18-49 during the week of October 6-10, 2014 continues to prove that point. In addition to "Y&R," CBS is experiencing overall growth with "The Bold and the Beautiful," "The Price is Right," "Let's Make a Deal" and "The Talk." In the case of "B&B," the soap is seeing plenty of women enjoying the storyline surrounding Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) and Caroline Spencer Forrester (Linsey Godfrey) along with the happenings of Hope Logan (Kim Matula) following the recent revelation that she's with child after a recent romp with one of the Spencer brothers. The soap is up 23% in Women 25-54 and 38% in Women 18-49 compared to the same week last year.

Each Monday, we plan to publish our weekly Daytime Ratings Report, which covers the broadcast soaps, game shows and talk shows. Unfortunately, due to an arm injury I sustained last Thursday, my typing skills have been put to the test and the report was delayed. Alas, I'm feeling a lot less pain than I did for much of the past week so here now is the daytime ratings report for the week of September 29-October 3, 2014. Better late than never, right? This week we highlight how the broadcast shows ranked overall in Total Viewers, Men 18+, Adults 18-49 and Median Age.
On Thursday, September 25, Soap Opera Network reported that CBS completed its 28th year as the most watched network in daytime with its highly ranked lineup consisting of soap operas "The Young and the Restless" and "The Bold and the Beautiful," game shows "The Price is Right" and "Let's Make a Deal," and growing talker "The Talk." In honor of their continued success the network has bestowed upon the cast and crews of each program a plaque that highlights key reasons everyone watches CBS Daytime.

In another smart move of cross promotion, CBS is sending two “The Talk” hosts to its primetime lineup: Sharon Osbourne will be appearing on “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” and Aisha Tyler will be appearing on “Two and a Half Men!”
As Soap Opera Network gets ready to celebrate its 13th anniversary on Wednesday, October 8, we are proud to announce that we will begin providing our readers with weekly ratings reports for not just the daytime soaps, but also talk shows "The Chew," "The Talk," "The View," "The Today Show 2" and "The Today Show 3," as well as game shows "Let's Make a Deal" and "The Price is Right," along with the previously reported ratings for "The Young and the Restless," "Days of our Lives," "General Hospital" and "The Bold and the Beautiful." The charts, which will vary week to week, does not take away from the weekly daytime drama rankings we will continue posting each week, but instead represents what daytime programming as a whole looks like when compared with one another and not based solely on genre.

The final week of the 2013-2014 television season came to a close last week (week of September 15-19, 2014) and CBS Daytime ended the year on top for the 28th consecutive year! "The Bold and the Beautiful" attracted its largest audience since the 2006-07 television season, while "The Young and the Restless" scored its most watched season in viewers since the 2009-10 television season. Meanwhile, "Let's Make a Deal" and "The Talk" hit their best numbers ever in viewers as "The Price is Right 1" delivered its largest audience since the 2004-05 season and "The Price is Right 2" brought in its biggest audience since the 2006-07 season.
As we first reported back in June, CBS' "The Price is Right" is gearing up for its second male model search, but this time with a twist. Instead of searching for male model hopefuls solely in and around the Los Angeles area, as they did back in 2012 for the first go around, "Price" has widened its search across America with casting calls in LA, Boston, Philadelphia, Dallas and Spartanburg, S.C., which kicked off the nationwide search on Saturday, August 16. The prize is a week-long spot on the game show hosted by Drew Carey. "Days of our Lives" star Robert Scott Wilson was the winner of the first competition.

Most of the population seems to love former “General Hospital” star John Stamos (Ex-Blackie), but perhaps not quite as much as “The Talk’s” co-host Sheryl Underwood. The actor, who's also known as Uncle Jesse from the 1980s sitcom "Full House," will be appearing on the Friday, July 25 episode of the talk show, and co-host Julie Chen surprised Underwood with the news during a recent taping of a promo shot. Check out her hilarious reaction here, and don’t forget to catch Stamos’ appearance this Friday!
