As soap operas become less and less fashionable, those home for long afternoons may wonder what to watch on daytime TV now.

Browse this list to find your new daytime go-to!

The Chew - which replaced the defunct All My Children in 2011 - is great for foodies as its full of recipes and chef interviews. If you love legal drama, many popular daytime TV shows are  courtroom dramas that have dominated for decades like The People's Court, and Judge Judy. Daytime talk shows - like The Talk and The View - are still a favorite. If you're in need of these and other current shows to binge during long afternoons, peruse the daytime TV guide below!
