“Big Money Week” is back on LET’S MAKE A DEAL!  The show rings in the new year by giving lucky Traders the opportunity to compete for more than $700,000 in cash and prizes, Monday, Jan. 6 – Friday, Jan. 10, (check local listings) on the CBS Television Network.

In each episode during the week, one unsuspecting Trader will have the chance to win $20,000 as part of a special deal that will suddenly appear during the show.  In addition to the $20,000 surprise, Host Wayne Brady will still deal with other Traders for lots of cars, one-of-a-kind trips, amazing prizes, plus some inevitable Zonks. At the end of each episode, the top Trader will also get a chance to go for the “Big Deal of the Day.”

CBS Daytime has been #1 in the daypart for 27 consecutive years, featuring a balance of dramas, game shows and talk. The Network’s daytime lineup includes television’s #1-rated daytime program and longest-running game show THE PRICE IS RIGHT, the #1 daytime drama THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS, daytime talk show THE TALK as well as THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL and LET’S MAKE A DEAL.

    Maybe they should use done of that money to update their equipment to HD.

    OMG! Let’s Make A Deal has done it again with Big Money Week coming up. When will we see Tiffany Coyne back after her maternity leave and on what date will it aired?

    who cares? me and all my friends never watch cbs at that hour (or at all) since they canceled guiding light and as the world turns.

    seems they never want to get back to the ratings atwt and gl were drawing only about 1-2 years before getting canceled. gh proves that it’s well possible to get back to that level.

    Just so you know, LMAD and The Talk are both now getting higher ratings than GL and ATWT got toward the end of their runs. Based on the last time I saw numbers, both shows have been drawing around 3 million viewers and are up in the key demos. Plus, they’re both cheaper to produce than soaps, and CBS owns a stake in The Talk, unlike the former P&G soaps.

    A couple of years ago, there was an article that stated how much more $$$ CBS’s daytime division is making now, compared to when GL and ATWT were still around. So CBS has no regrets about those decisions. They often use the replacement shows (as well as TPIR) to cross promote Y&R and B&B, and it seems to have paid off as their entire lineup is up in the last couple of years and growing.

    Stop spreading your ridiculous lies.

    “The Talk” is far away from drawing “3 million viewers”.

    Their average is around a 1.8 rating in households this season so far, which is lower than ATWT’s ratings even in its weakest (last) season.

    In women 18-49 The Talk only draws 0.7-0.8, that is considerably lower than ATWT even in its weakest period, not to mention where ATWT stood only 1-2 years before cancellation.

    And it is only HALF the numbers in this key sales demo that GENERAL HOSPITAL is drawing IN THE SAME TIME SLOT.

    LMAD is also significantly weaker in the key demos than all the four soaps that are currently on.

    General Hospital is the best evidence that it is possible to get back to the level of ratings that ATWT and GL were drawing 1-2 years before getting canceled.

    And apparently, you have absolutely no clue of the current debates in advertiser circles. These people are the ones who are actually paying for all these programs and they want to see more shows with ratings in the key demos like GH’s again, not The Talk’s or LMAD’s!
