What was your schedule for daytime shows?

Mine was pretty easy, the NBC ones when i was little, but my mom wanted to watch her soaps from ABC.

Spring 1975, when you could watch network  game shows non-stop from 10am to 4:30pm.  I was lucky in that Jackpot! got delayed to 1pm.
Let's Make a Deal was the first show to air on Buzzr. 6/1/15 8PM.

Being a child of the 90s, it was even easier for me: 11:00, CBS. :)

CBS and NBC mornings c. 1988-90. It wasn’t much, but I still enjoyed it. Would love to see those days return.

If there was something I liked I would watch it--this explains why I totally missed out on Blockbusters '87, All-Star Blitz and Time Machine. Usually the choices were easy, but NBC and CBS did seem to do battle from '86 to '89.

I remember this period very well. ABC had Blankety Blanks, Password, Let's Make a Deal, The $10,000 Pyramid, The Big Showdown and Money Maze. The first two and latter two shows would be gone by the Summer of '75.

This is such a broad question as it depends on the time period.....I can tell you that in summer 1988, it was CBS from 10am-noon with the then-new Family Feud, then Card Sharks, and Price is Right.

The beginning of the summer '84 was pretty great

Morning:
Body Language
$25k Pyramid
Press Your Luck
Price (flip after the Showcase reveal to see the Dream House climax)
Hot Potato (replaced by Family Feud)

Afternoon:
MG/HS Hour (replaced by Bullseye and TTD on CBN)
Tape delayed $ale on secondary NBC affliate
Tape delayed Wheel on secondary NBC affiliate

I forgot to include Split Second, which would also be gone by the Summer of '75.

In 1990, I distinctly remember doing the following in the mornings:

9:30 - Classic Concentration (we would have to watch until the credits were done since my brother wanted to see all of the cars)
10:00 - Price is Right
11:00 - Either Trump Card or Match Game (Shafer)

Match Game only happened if my dad was still at work; otherwise, he would insist on watching Geraldo.  Then, after lunch, the switch over to USA.  ;)

/I know Wheel and Feud were also both on CBS at the time, but I can't remember when they aired on WBBM.  I just know I didn't watch those regularly.
//My mom would also record TJW and TTD on WMAQ...at 1:00 and 1:30 AM.

For me-

$25k Pyramid
$ale
Daytime Wheel
Scrabble

Okay, I know damn well I'm going to regret asking this...but how the hell does it matter which set of soap operas you actively weren't watching?

Living out west, there was a time in the early 1970s when ABC didn't schedule anything in the Pacific time zone before noon (except for repeats of The Brady Bunch at 11:30) - IIRC, it was Password at noon, Split Second at 12:30, Let's Make a Deal at 1:30, The Newlywed Game at 2:00, and The Dating Game at 2:30 - which made things easier for me to split my mornings between CBS and NBC. I think the only time I switched back and forth between the two was when both Baffle and $10,000 Pyramid were on at 9:30 AM.

I remember visiting relatives in Colorado in the '80s at a point when the Denver CBS affiliate was running its daytime schedule on the Eastern feed (i.e., game shows beginning at 8:00) and the NBC affiliate was running on the Pacific feed (game shows beginning at 10:00). Or maybe it was the other way around. Either way, it was neat.

I remember being fascinated by this programming strategy while vacationing in Colorado during the fall of 1977...reading the TV Guide and seeing such different scheduling gave me goosebumps...
