Hold onto your hats, CBS Daytime fans, because the network's edgy new digital series, Not Safe For Daytime, has finally hit the Internet.
The uncensored and at-times shocking webisodes beginning today on CBS Daytime's official YouTube channel include inventive original skits, pop culture parodies, and viral video spoofs featuring stars from The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful, The Price is Right, The Talk, and Let's Make A Deal.
"CBS Daytime has one of the most passionate and loyal audiences in television, reaching 28 million viewers each week," says Angelica McDaniel, Executive Vice President, Daytime Programs and Syndicated Program Development, CBS Entertainment and CBS Television Distribution. "We wanted to thank them by creating even more content, going behind the scenes of our series and showing a side of our talent that is, well, not safe for daytime TV! This is an irreverent, fun, 'fresh' way to bring CBS Daytime to our viewers everywhere at any time."
