CBS' Entire Daytime Lineup Renewed Through at Least 2017
ABC's ante meridiem may be awash in turmoil, but CBS is happy to keep things status quo. The network has renewed its entire daytime lineup — hosts and casts presumably intact — for the 2016-17 TV season.
The Talk, The Price Is Right, Let's Make a Deal, The Bold and the Beautiful and The Young and the Restless are all set for return for the 2016-17 season, something of a no-brainier for the stable roster that hasn't seen any change since the launch of The Talk back in 2010.
The orders include another season of Let's Make a Deal and a two-year pickup for The Bold and the Beautiful — while the other trio previously received multiyear pickups to carry through at least 2017.
"Each year, CBS Daytime produces more than 1,000 episodes of programming — the most for any broadcast network — which is only possible due to the incredible passion of the industry’s best creative talent, both in front of and behind the camera," said CBS Entertainment and CBS Television Distribution exec vp daytime programs and syndicated program development Angelica McDaniel, who boasts one of the longer titles in the television industry. "Our loyal audience has made CBS Daytime the No. 1 daily destination for millions of viewers, and we thank them for contributing to this phenomenal success. Next year will be even bigger and bolder."
All told, viewership for the entire CBS daytime lineup is up 3 percent compared with last season. That includes The Price Is Right maintaining its most watched status across the networks and The Talk's newfound ratings edge over longtime competition The View over on ABC.
The orders follow a similar status in primetime, where CBS has renewed almost its entire lineup for the 2016-17 season — save new series and a few bubble shows all waiting for a green light.
