As has been the case since at least 2022, CBS will once again preempt much of its daytime lineup all or in part on Tuesday, February 13; Wednesday, February 14; Tuesday, February 20; Wednesday, February 21; Tuesday, March 5 and Wednesday, March 6 due to the network’s commitment to airing UEFA Champions League Round of 16 games.

“The Talk” will be fully preempted on all six days with “UEFA Champions League Today,” a pre-game show providing viewers with news and highlights from the UEFA Champions League, airing in its place at 2:00 p.m. ET/11:00 a.m. PT (“The Talk” airs at 1:00 p.m. PT). Starting at 3:00 p.m. ET/12:00 p.m. PT, CBS will air “UEFA Champions League Soccer.”

On the West Coast (Mountain and Pacific Time Zones), “The Young and the Restless” and “The Bold and the Beautiful” will be preempted as the network is carrying games live coast to coast. Viewers living in markets impacted by the preemptions can keep up with the latest happenings on both soaps as episodes will be made available on the CBS App, CBS.com and Paramount+.

Except in markets where “Let’s Make a Deal” airs after “The Talk,” CBS’ daytime schedule consisting of “The Price is Right,” “The Young and the Restless” and “The Bold and the Beautiful” will air as scheduled on the East Coast without interruption. As for those impacted stations, “Let’s Make a Deal” will be preempted in full or air overnight. The show will air without interruption in markets where it airs preceding “The Price is Right.”

“The Price is Right,” which airs at 11:00 a.m. ET/10:00 a.m. PT, is the only daytime show that will air without interruption coast to coast on all six days of the network’s coverage of the UEFA Champions League games. 

UEFA Champions League is an annual competition organized by the Union of European Football Associations as the top 16 clubs in the European tournament each vie for the Coupe des Clubs Champions Européens (aka European Cup) trophy. Clubs competing this year include RB Leipzig (Germany), Real Madrid (Spain), Copenhagen (Denmark), Manchester City (England), Paris Saint-Germain (France), Bayern München (Germany), Internazionale Milano (Italy) and Napoli (Italy), among others.

Ratings for CBS’ broadcast of the UEFA Champions League games haven’t always been stellar, with last year’s final averaging a mere 2.183 million viewers, albeit the game aired on Saturday (June 10, 2023) and started at 3:01 p.m. ET. Of the audience tuning in, 1.049 million were in the key Adults 18-49 demographic. The game was between Manchester City and Internazionale Milano football clubs and did a 0.99 Household rating.

The matches currently scheduled to air on CBS (all starting at 3:00 p.m. ET) include: 

  • Copenhagen vs. Manchester City (Tuesday, February 13)
  • Paris Saint-Germain vs. Real Sociedad (Wednesday, February 14)
  • Inter Milan vs. Atlético Madrid (Tuesday, February 20)
  • Napoli vs. Barcelona (Wednesday, February 21)
  • *Bayern Munich vs. Lazio OR Real Sociedad vs. Paris Saint-Germain (Tuesday, March 5)
  • *Manchester City vs. Copenhagen OR Real Madrid vs. RB Leipzig (Wednesday, March 6)

Note*: The matches scheduled to air on CBS on Tuesday, March 5 and Wednesday, March 6 will be determined at a later date. Both matches will stream live on Paramount+.
