CBS Renews Entire Daytime Lineup Through 2013-14 Season
CBS has given the green light for its entire daytime lineup to return through the 2013-14 season.
The network announced Tuesday morning that The Bold and the Beautiful, The Talk, The Price is Right and Let’s Make a Deal will all join the previously renewed The Young and the Restless on next year's schedule.
"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," said CBS Entertainment president Nina Tassler. "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."
CBS' roster boasts TV's most-watched soap in The Young and the Restless, daytime's most-watched program in The Price is Right and the fastest growing daytime talk show in The Talk -- which continues to see double digit growth in its third season.
“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,” said CBS Entertainment senior vice president of daytime Angelica McDaniel. "We have been number one for over two decades, and our goal is to challenge ourselves to make our successful schedule even stronger.”
Both The Price is Right and Let's Make a Deal are produced by FremantleMedia North America. The Young and the Restless is produced by Bell Dramatic Serial Company, in association with Sony Pictures Television. The Bold in the Beautiful is produced by Bell-Phillip Television.
The Talk was originally developed by panelist Sara Gilbert, who also serves as executive producer.
