The talented and oh-so-sexy Wilson Bethel is on the move to a new show that soap fans should definitely tune-in for! The former star of The Young and the Restless where he played Ryder is heading to the new ABC sudsy drama, Blood & Oil!

Bethel, who was series regular on CW’s Hart of Dixie , and most recently played astronaut Scott Carpenter on ABC’s The Astronaut Wives Club has continued to have a successful career in primetime television.

According to Deadline, Bethel will play the role of  Finn, a charismatic but poor businessman, who owns a food truck, and partners up with Kess (Keston John) and Ada’ (Yaani King). 

The ABC drama stars Don Johnson as a ruthless oil tycoon in the lead role, and Chace Crawford and Rebecca Rittenhouse as a young couple who move to “The Bakken” in North Dakota, booming after the biggest oil discovery in American history.

The series written by Josh Pate and Rodes Fishburne and executive produced by Tony Krantz looked extremely promising when it has its official unveiling in front of the television press at the recent ABC TCA Summer Press Tour, just a few weeks ago.

Watch the official trailer for Blood & Oil after the jump.  Then let us know if you will be checking out Wilson in his new role on the series!

    I sure hope he retires that horrific Southern accent he attempted in “Heart of Dixie.”

    He was the better of the two considering his sister Daisy was a horrible actress. Good for him, this show looks good and Don Johnson is gold!

    The primetime series/soaps are heavy awesome..
    People are use to watching primetime soaps/series..
    Revenge, Scandal, Blacklist, the Following, American Horror Story, The Walking Dead, and the list goes on way back to Mad Men and Breaking Bad..
    That is the continuing stories, series, that is of ‘now’
    not to mention Empire and Mr, Robot ..
    ((all a world apart, a universe apart, from daytime soaps)) lol
    ((love my GH!!)

    and some believe the watchers of primetime soaps/ongoing series would actually be invested in lower than a PG rating daytime soap that have changed little since the 80’s..

    At the least RC gave an effort to modernize GH and bring it as far as a soap can go into the 21st century .. GH was unique in that way, not traditional as the other soaps..
    RC did GH well ..

    I am looking forward to ABC’s Primetime Soap BLOOD & OIL and to all the new primetime soap/series coining this fall..they all seem awesome, it’s gonna be some darn good watching 🙂

    (I really like the SYFY primetime series/soaps so to say..Defiance, Blackmatter, Killjoys, Extant and hopefully some darn good Star Trek series, again. yeah !!

    He wasn’t a “star” on Y&R. He wasn’t even on contract during his time on the show. His popularity soared after a shirtless sex scene with Jenna. The last time he was on Y&R he was left hiding in a coat closet. Then he got picked up for CW’s “Heart of Dixie”. The rest is history….and a lot more shirtless scenes. LOL.

RATINGS: DAYS Overtakes GH And Takes The Number Three Spot!

Following their triple-crown victory of winning Outstanding Daytime Drama Series, Writing Team in a Drama Series, and Directing Team honors at the 45th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, Days of our Lives continued their upswing when the recent ratings were released this week.

For the week ending April 30th through May 4th, DAYS moved past General Hospital as the third most-watched soap opera. Considering DAYS has been in the fourth position of all four soaps for the last several years, this is definitely worth noting.. DAYS came in with 2,301,000 average total viewers for the ratings week, while GH had 2, 288,000. In addition, GH tied an all-time low in the womens 18-34 ratings share.

As for The Young and the Restless, they also lost the most viewers for the week with -174,00, while coming in at 4,089,000 total viewers. Even though they remain at number one and are far ahead of the other three soaps, it seems the show, which in the past has hovered around 4.5 million a week, is down. In addition, the ratings reflected that B&B is now tied with Y&R for the number one show in the womens demo 18-34, and Y&R has tied some lows in total households, and the women 18-49 ratings share.

The Bold and the Beautiful remains second of the soaps with 3,227,00 viewers, but is down over 100,000 total viewers from last year at this time. View the entire ratings picture via SON here. (more…)
