    Go CBS……………..


    JFP is not going anywhere with her ratings.

  • Bart

    GO “Y & R”!!!

  • Jennifer

    @Jonny You are right. JFP is staying put and she probably got a huge raise because of the stellar ratings she brings to CBS. I hope to see her at the Emmy Podium this year.

  • John

    Shows that viewers want to see regular models on TPIR.

  • moshane58

    Great news for Y&R….

  • j

    Impressive ratings for LMAD.That show improves every yr.Not surprised by the other shows cos Cbs had owned daytime for so long.

  • me

    This is what is so sad about the people who refuse to let the soap operas rest in peace (they STILL want OLTL and AMC back): Let’s Make A Deal gets higher ratings than both.

  • Tran

    The one question that still bothers me over the years is when OH when will The Price is Right EVER going to end? Bob Barker is still the best in my opinion but I believe that Drew Carey is no Bob Barker and he’s still everybody’s BAD NEWS. :-(

  • JayTN

    If you don’t like “Price is Right”, the solution is very simple…don’t watch it. Isn’t that what the “Duck Dynasty” supporters were saying during its recent dust up?

    Personally, I didn’t like Bob Barker and his wacko PETA views, not to mention the (likely true) allegations of sexual harassment against him. Nothing but a “dirty old man” in my opinion.

  • Mike

    Congrats to Y&R and all of CBS. My favorite network for daytime TV.

  • Mark McNeil


    Drew Carey’s not my “bad news”. I’ve been a fan of his for 20 years now, since he was a regular on the short-lived sitcom “The Good Life”.

  • RedRiver38

    Funny, they don’t mention the reason for the high ratings. It was the last week of Billy Miller and Michael Muhney’s appearances on Y&R. CBS is disingenuous.
