Remaining number one in the daytime ratings for 32 consecutive years, CBS announced earlier this week that its entire daytime lineup consisting of soap operas “The Bold and the Beautiful” and “The Young and the Restless,” game shows “Let’s Make a Deal” and “The Price is Right,” and “The Talk” will all be returning for the 2019-20 television season.
“For almost a third of a century, CBS has demonstrated a remarkable legacy of success in Daytime,” said Angelica McDaniel, Executive Vice President, CBS Daytime Programs and Syndicated Programs Development. “Our programming continues to maintain a level of achievement unheard of in today’s television landscape, thanks to the passion and dedication of the extraordinary producers, casts, staff and crew on the shows, our studio partners, and most importantly, the fans. They have our deepest gratitude, and we look forward to entertaining them for many years to come.”
Averaging 4.6 million viewers so far this season (most-current), “The Young and the Restless” had already been renewed through 2019-20 as part of a three-year deal CBS made with producer Sony Pictures Television back in 2017. Next season, “Y&R” will celebrate the anniversaries of several of its prominent talents, including Eric Braeden (Victor Newman; 40 years), Peter Bergman (Jack Abbott; 30 years), Joshua Morrow and Sharon Case (Nicholas and Sharon Newman; 25 years each), and Bryton James (Devon Hamilton; 15 years).
“The Bold and the Beautiful” remains the world’s most-watched daily serial, 3.61 million of whom watching each day on CBS.
Starring Wayne Brady, “Let’s Make a Deal” will enter its 11th season on the network. The series, which is broken up into two parts and is coded as “Deal 1” and “Deal 2,” is executive produced by Mike Richards, who also oversees “The Price is Right” for Fremantle. “Deal 1” is averaging 2.92 million viewers so far this season, while “Deal 2” is averaging 3.34 million viewers.
Entering its 48th season, “The Price is Right” is also broken up into two parts. “Price 1” is averaging 4.59 million viewers, while “Price 2” is averaging 5.23 million viewers. In October 2019, “Price” will celebrate its 9000th episode. Hosted by Drew Carey, the game show remains the most-watched daytime program on broadcast television.
