It was some great news today for The Young and the Restless, against all the sturm und drang of late!
This morning at the CBS TCA (Television Critics Association) Winter Press Tour, Nina Tassler, the President of CBS Entertainment announced the entire CBS Daytime programming block which includes: The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful, The Talk, Let’s Make a Deal and The Price is Right have all been renewed for another season. However for Y&R, the number one soap received a multi-year pickup through the 2017 television season!
Senior Vice President, CBS Daytime, Angelica McDaniel acknowledged in the CBS official press release: “The return of all five of our CBS Daytime shows is a credit to the collaborative spirit of the casts, crews and staff who work tirelessly to make their creative vision come to life. A special thank you goes out to our loyal fans for watching and for making us #1 in daytime.”
The renewals of the entire line-up came as no surprise, since the daytime programming block came off a season of growth in viewers and in key women demos for all of its daytime programs!
