(CBS/AP) NEW YORK - The nominations for this year's Daytime Emmy Awards have been announced, and ABC's "General Hospital" leads the way with 23 nominations.

The television academy said Wednesday that the venerable soap opera will compete with NBC's "Days of Our Lives," CBS' "The Young and the Restless" and the canceled "All My Children" of ABC for best daytime drama. NBC's "The Bold and the Beautiful" has won the trophy three years in a row but wasn't nominated this year.

Other repeat winners are possible, though: Ben Bailey of "Cash Cab" was nominated for best game show host and Dr. Mehmet Oz as best talk show host.

"Sesame Street" and "The Young and the Restless" tied for second most nominations, with 16 apiece. ABC was the most honored network with 56 nominations. The ceremony will be held in Beverly Hills, Calif., on June 23.
