CBS is set to conclude the 2020-2021 television season as America's most-watched network for the 13th consecutive year in primetime. In daytime, the network will finish first for the 35th consecutive season in total viewers, led by "The Price is Right" and "The Young and the Restless."
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.
