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!
CBS announced yesterday that “The Price Is Right” will be introducing a brand new pricing game called “Do the Math” during its season premiere week (Monday, September 23 through Friday, September 27), but that’s not all the longest-running talk show can boast about: According to the official press release, several stars from “The Bold and the Beautiful” and “The Young and the Restless” will be appearing on the game show all season long! There’s no word yet on who will appear and when, so stay tuned for details as they develop!
While the soaps are all up year-to-year in total viewers and key sales demos, CBS' "The Talk" is also showing signs of solid growth. Last week (week of July 15-19, 2013), the daytime talk show, hosted by Sharon Osbourne, Aisha Tyler, Sara Gilbert, Julie Chen and Sheryl Underwood, recorded its largest weekly audience ever as the program averaged 2.62 million viewers.
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:
