CBS Daytime Supports Breast Cancer Awareness Month With Special Programming

CBS Daytime series THE PRICE IS RIGHT, THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS, LETS MAKE A DEAL, THE TALK and THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL will support Breast Cancer Awareness month with special dedicated programming to air during the first week of October.

“I can’t think of anything more important than reminding women to get a mammogram or do a self-examination during Breast Cancer Awareness Month,” said Angelica McDaniel, Senior VP of Daytime, CBS Entertainment. “I’m proud that our daytime shows have stepped forward to support this cause.”

Programming details for the week of Oct. 1-5 include:

On Monday, Oct. 1 (11:00 AM-12:00 Noon, ET; 10:00-11:00 AM, PT) THE PRICE IS RIGHT will once again partner with “Ford Warriors in Pink” in presenting a special episode to promote Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Host Drew Carey and announcer George Gray will wear “Warriors in Pink” shirts and ties, and the audience of breast cancer survivors will wear “Warriors in Pink” scarves. Several of the survivors will find themselves on Contestants’ Row, with one of them getting the chance to play Plinko, where a $10,000 donation will be made to Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation. In addition, Carey will appear in a public service announcement for “Warriors in Pink” to air within the episode.

On Monday, Oct. 1 and Tuesday, Oct. 2 (12:30-1:30 PM, ET; 11:00 AM-12:00 Noon, PT), THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS star Jeanne Cooper will wear a Breast Cancer Awareness pin, and on Tuesday, Oct. 2, actress Christel Khalil will wear a Breast Cancer Awareness bracelet to pay tribute to the cause.
