Get ready for the drama to continue for another year! CBS Daytime is renewing its entire slate of programming for the 2019-2020 television season, which includes THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL and THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS!
“For almost a third of a century, CBS has demonstrated a remarkable legacy of success in Daytime,” said Angelica McDaniel, Executive Vice President, CBS Daytime Programs and Syndicated Programs Development. “Our programming continues to maintain a level of achievement unheard of in today’s television landscape, thanks to the passion and dedication of the extraordinary producers, casts, staff and crew on the shows, our studio partners, and most importantly, the fans. They have our deepest gratitude, and we look forward to entertaining them for many years to come.”
B&B recently celebrated its 32nd anniversary and averages 3.61 million viewers. It is also one of the most-watched daytime dramas in the world due to its phenomenal popularity overseas. Y&R has been on CBS for 47 years, and has been the number one rated drama for the past 32 of those. And during this coming season, some big anniversaries will be held, with Eric Braeden (Victor) celebrating 40 years on the soap, Peter Bergman (Jack), 30 years, Joshua Morrow (Nick) and Sharon Case (Sharon), 25 years each, and Bryton James (Devon) 15 years.
So soap fans can relax and know that they’ll be able to enjoy all the drama in Genoa City as well as the feuding between the Spencers, Logans, and Forresters well into next year! (The renewal also includes game shows THE PRICE IS RIGHT and LET’S MAKE A DEAL as well as chat show THE TALK.)
