    Default "go daily" --- adjective or adverb?

    Good morning, hello, good afternoon teachers!


    I have a grammar question about the following sentence.


    The TV show went daily.


    Would this sentence be counted as an "S(TV show) + V(went) + C(daily)" sentence
    where daily is seen as an adjective?

    Or is it an "S(TV show) + V(went)" sentence where daily is seen as an adverb?


    Thank you for your help as always!

    'The TV show went out daily.'

    Daily is an adverb here.

    'Good Morning is a daily TV show.' Here it's an adjective.

    Thank you for you response!


    Would it still be an adverb if the sentence was just


    "The show went daily."


    without the "out"?
    (as in, the show was originally once a week, but it became a daily show)


    I'd really appreciate it if I could get another response!

    No - it would be an adjective if it became a daily show.
