The Tiffany Network's daytime division leads the pack this Daytime Emmy season. 

CBS programs are nominated for 62 Daytime Emmys this year — the most of any network. PBS and syndicated programming tie for second with 50 nominations a piece. ABC received 35 nominations; while NBC boasts 20.

Twenty-five of those nominations came in for soap opera The Young and the Restless. Y&R isn't the most nominated soap this year, however. That honor goes to ABC Daytime's General Hospital, which secured 28 nominations.
