These four join the previously-renewed The Young and the Restless to bring back CBS' entire daytime lineup for the 2013-14 season.
"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 Nina Tassler, president, CBS Entertainment. "We are proud of CBS' 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 averaging 3.44 million viewers this season, up 6% over last year. The Talk is trending 11% higher than last year with 2.35 million viewers. The Wayne Brady-hosted Let's Make a Deal is up 9% year-over-year with 2.53 million viewers. The Price Is Right, which celebrated its 40th anniversary recently, is drawing 4.3 million viewers to remain as daytime's most-watched program.
I am so happy to hear that Lets Make A Deal with Wayne Brady will be back. I have watched this show faithfully since Wayne started hosting and I love the energy and enthusiasm that he brings to each and every episode. As an added note he is pretty easy on the eyes as well. I look forward to the return of the show on CBS soooooooooooooooooooooooooon.
