CBS and Sony Pictures Television strike deal to keep “The Young and the Restless” on the air through the 2023-2024 broadcast television season.
Angelica McDaniel is out as head of CBS Daytime after her position was folded into the current programming department, headed by Amy Reisenbach. ABC and NBC made similar decisions in recent years relating to their daytime programming.
As previously reported, the seventh season of CBS’ “The Mentalist” will be its last. The network confirmed the news today when it announced the series will return to the primetime schedule on Sunday, November 30 at 9:30 PM, ET/9:00 PM, PT*, before moving to its regular Wednesday 8:00 PM time slot on January 7. “Mentalist” will bridge the gap between new episodes of “The Good Wife” during its Sunday run and take over for “Survivor” on Wednesdays before it concludes with a special two-hour series finale airing on Wednesday, February 18. In addition to “The Mentalist,” “Undercover Boss” returns to the lineup with three special Sunday broadcasts on December 14 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT), and December 21 and 28 (8:30-9:30 PM, ET/8:00-9:00 PM, PT*). On January 2, it will move to its regular Friday (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) time period.
