CBS DAYTIME REACHES AMAZING MILESTONE – 33 YEARS AT #1

CBS Daytime Ends the 2018-2019 Broadcast Year with Top Six Shows

Network Has Top Two Game Shows, Top Two Daytime Dramas

and Exciting Changes at “The Talk”

Streak Started in 1986

 

CBS Daytime once again ended the full 52-week broadcast year as the #1 performer in the daypart for the 33rd consecutive year – a streak that has never been, and will most likely never be equaled. The Network’s daypart features a balance of dramas, game shows and talk, including network television’s #1 daytime program and longest-running game show THE PRICE IS RIGHT, as well as the #2 game show, LET’S MAKE A DEAL. CBS also has the top two daytime dramas, THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS and THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL, as well as the Daytime Emmy Award-winning THE TALK, which has received a new boost of energy in season 10 as Marie Osmond has joined the hosts at the table each day, Sharon Osborne has revealed her refreshed look, and the show unveiled a new state-of-the-art set.

To frame this incredible accomplishment, the following events happened in 1986 – the first time CBS was #1 in daytime:
