CBS has renewed its entire daytime lineup—including daytime dramas “The Bold and the Beautiful” and “The Young and the Restless”—for next season, the network announced Jan. 29.

CBS chat show “The Talk” and game shows “The Price Is Right” and “Let’s Make a Deal” are also returning for the 2013-14 TV season, after all reported ratings growth over last year. Viewership for “The Bold and the Beautiful” was up 6 percent this year.

“The Young and the Restless,” which CBS says has been the top-rated daytime drama for “more than 24 years,” was previously given a multi-year renewal through the 2013-14 season. The soap celebrates its 40th anniversary March 26.

“We are proud of CBS’s history of quality and leadership in daytime, thrilled with our current success, and we look forward to more great things ahead from the outstanding creative talent in place at each of the shows,” CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler said in a statement.

Christy Dooley is the casting director for “The Bold and the Beautiful,” while former “All My Children” CD Judy Blye Wilson now casts “The Young and the Restless.”

In addition, production company Prospect Park announced late last week that its highly anticipated online reboots of “All My Children” and “One Life to Live,” two long-running soaps that were canceled by ABC in 2011, will premiere on the web this spring. New 30-minute episodes of both “AMC” and “OLTL” will debut online each weekday on the company’s Online Network and will also be available on Hulu and iTunes.

As Backstage previously reported, Alison Goodman is the casting director for both series.
