THE BREAKDOWN

On Monday, January 1, 2024 (New Year’s Day), the two broadcast networks that still carry scripted programming as part of their daytime lineups, ABC and CBS, are set to provide a different set of programming than they offered on Christmas Day, with ABC airing The Rose Parade along with sports, while CBS is set to air reruns of its regular daytime schedule. Meanwhile, Peacock releases an all-new episode of “Days of our Lives.”

On ABC, the network will broadcast “The Rose Parade” from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. ET/8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. PT. Marking its 135th year, the annual event brings residents and visitors to Pasadena, California as they celebrate New Year’s Day with grand floats covered in flowers, spirited marching bands, and high-stepping equestrian units. Immediately following the parade, the network will air its coverage of College Football with the Cheeze-It Citrus Bowl: Iowa vs. Tennessee game. 

As a result, ABC will preempt its full daytime schedule, including “The View,” GMA3: What You Need to Know” and “General Hospital,” on both the East and West Coasts. All three shows will return to airing original episodes on Tuesday, January 2.

As for CBS, the network is set to air reruns of its entire lineup, including “The Price is Right,” “The Young and the Restless,” “The Bold and the Beautiful,” “The Talk” and “Let’s Make a Deal.”

In the case of “The Young and the Restless,” the series will air episode #7739, which originally aired on October 17, 2003, and is a continuation of the repeat that the network aired this past Friday. In the episode, Nick (Joshua Morrow) questions Sharon’s (Sharon Case) loyalty, J.T. (Thad Luckinbill) and Brad (Don Diamont, now Bill Spencer on “The Bold and the Beautiful”) work together to rescue Colleen (then played by Lyndsy Fonseca), and Kevin (Greg Rikaart) keeps up appearances with Lily (Christel Khalil).

On “The Bold and the Beautiful,” the show continues airing episodes from its Rome, Italy location shoot, this time episode #9049, which originally aired on Monday, June 26, 2023. The episode featured Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) surprising Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) with a romantic gesture via a private performance by opera singer Andrea Bocelli, while Liam (Scott Clifton) confided in Wyatt (Darin Brooks) about his trip to Rome. Veronica Bocelli (real-life wife of Andrea) also appears as herself.

Watch a snippet from Andrea Bocelli’s performance below.

Both “The Young and the Restless” and “The Bold and the Beautiful,” along with the rest of the CBS daytime lineup, return to originals on Tuesday, January 2, 2024.

As for “Days of our Lives,” which is the only daytime drama series airing an original on New Year’s Day, the people of Salem ring in the New Year with a bang. As Paulina and Abe (Jackée Harry and James Reynolds) celebrate together, Tate (James Martin Mann) finds Holly (Ashley Puzemis) unconscious after she is the victim of tainted pills. After learning what happened to her daughter, Nicole (Arianne Zucker) is beside herself. Elsewhere, Theresa (Emily O’Brien) is furious with Alex (Robert Scott Wilson) when he suggests that Tate might have been involved with Holly’s drug use. Lastly, Harris (Steve Burton) has questions for Stefan and Ava pertaining to what happened to Holly.
