On Tuesday, CBS had some good news for fans of its daytime lineup. As expected, The Bold and the Beautiful received a renewal for the 2013-14 season and the network also renewed The Talk, The Price is Right and Let’s Make a Deal. CBS’s other soap, The Young and the Restless was already renewed through 2014 as part of a previous two-year renewal.
“Over the past few years, we have successfully transitioned our daytime schedule to a balance of program genres with new creative energy, while maintaining our ratings leadership,” Nina Tassler, CBS Entertainment President, said in a press statement. “We are proud of CBS’s history of quality and leadership in daytime, thrilled with our current success and we look forward to more great things ahead from the outstanding creative talent in place at each of the shows.”
The Bold and the Beautiful is the most watched soap around the world and The Young and the Restless has been the No. 1 daytime drama for more than 24 years and will celebrate its 40th anniversary on March 26.
“I am excited and energized by the pickup of our lineup for next season, which features a balanced mix of talk, game shows and drama,” Angelica McDaniel, Senior VP, Daytime CBS Entertainment, said in a press statement. “We have been #1 for over two decades, and our goal is to challenge ourselves to make our successful schedule even stronger.”
