CBS Daytime announced today the launch of Not Safe For Daytime.   They are promoting it as “an edgy new series of digital videos on its YouTube channel that highlights and promotes CBS Daytime’s popular programs.”

The webisodes are said to include: “inventive original skits, pop culture parodies and viral video spoofs, and feature stars from CBS Daytime’s #1 lineup.”  In the press release for the digital extras, Angelica McDaniel, Executive Vice President, Daytime Programs and Syndicated Program Develoopment, CBS Entertainment and CBS Television Distribution related: “CBS Daytime has one of the most passionate and loyal audiences in television, reaching 28 million viewers each week.  We wanted to thank them by creating even more content, going behind the scenes of our series and showing a side of our talent that is, well, not safe for daytime TV! This is an irreverent, fun, ‘fresh’ way to bring CBS Daytime to our viewers everywhere at any time.”

    I’m not impressed by this video at all. CBS I expected so much more from you. This is a complete let down; you’re better than this.

    I think Piersons character, Thomas, is a creep on B&B. This promo makes me want to up-chuck even more. Wonder how many mirrors he has to look at himself?

    As for GH, I think Kelly & Michael have a big audience…perfect time for Kelly to promote GH and their actors once in a while since GH seems to promote a lot of ABC’s other properties. Especially when hubby Mark is co-hosting. Or soaps in general since this is how she got her start playing Hayley on AMC, and where she met Mark. She could be a great resource on certain soap topics, like playing an alcoholic since she played one at one point.

    It is unfortunate that people make judgments about an actor based on the character he plays.

    Elizabeth…I agree about making judgements on actors because of their characters. That’s why I specifically said his character. I just have been disappointed on the roles Pierson has had to play either on B&B or this promo.

    Why is this supposed to be funny. .I don’t see the added value to our drama series with low rent parodies and people buffooning for the camera. .I’m lost.
