Now this is a classic film moment, and being “soapified” on the August 28th episode of CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful, when the former host of The Price is Right and animal activist, Bob Barker returns to the soap preaching his important message about the pet population!

While the Spencer brothers Liam (Scott Clifton) and Wyatt (Darin Brooks) are having a discussion, they run into Barker who is getting no respect from a mouthing off Wyatt!  In fact, Wyatt is down right demeaning to Barker and his animal platitudes!

TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan got the skinny from Barker that this whole scene is a takeoff on his classic fight with Adam Sandler in the 1996 movie Happy Gilmore!  Here are a few excerpts below!

Barker on being 90-years-old and in a fight scene with a younger man: “Well, first I had to have a talk with Darin, the actor I knocked around.  I said, “Just so we’re clear, young man, it does not say in the script that you hit back. We got that?” I win all my fights. That’s because they’re fixed!”

Barker on making another soap opera appearance to B&B:  “You want to call me a soap star? Hey, at my age, I’ll take it! I’m grateful for whatever comes my way, especially when I can get out my message about the importance of spaying and neutering animals. CBS and B&B exec producer Brad Bell have been incredible about using the soap to increase awareness. And if I get a chance to punch out a guy who thinks animal lovers are stupid wackos, even better!”

It was great to see Bob on TV again. He looks great. But they could have done him better. The pet thing is soooo old. I agree it is the dumbest thing I’ve seen on BB, today. They have had much dumber. BB is so awful it makes me want to go all Barker on my TV. lol And IMO Liam (Scott Clifton) is one of the worst actors ever. I’ve had the displeasure to see him on other shows like OLTL, and he just gets worse. I don’t know how he gets work. Why do those two seemingly intelligent women (Hope and Steph?) even like him? Even the writers probably don’t know. Why BB hasn’t been replaced with reruns of Judge Judy I don’t know. ha ha. Just sayn. 😉

B&B has lost its way in many fronts. Tho there is some nugget of excitement in the daytime drama, I just am not engaged anymore. No one does anything! And if they do, it is all about love and attraction and knee-jerk plotting without development or suspense. Yawn!

Is Brooke going to be pregnant again?

Impeachment Hearings On Broadcast Networks Show Ratings Much Lower Than The Daytime Soap Operas They Are Preempting

In an infuriating article written by FOX news, off of a study from NewsBusters, the news outlet and others have come to the realization that all of us who want our soaps back on the air already know.  That is … that the network daytime dramas ratings are far better on a day-to-day basis than people tuning into network TV during the day to watch the impeachment hearings of Donald Trump.

Soap fans have been furious that in the afternoon network TV is pulling their soaps off their normal airtime across all coasts.  Daytime soap viewers feel that all of the 24-hour news cable outlets should be the the place to go to see the hearings during the day; as to not to preempt the drama on General Hospital, Days of our Lives, The Young and the Restless, and The Bold and the Beautiful.

Just for the record, the study via NewsBusters showed that on day one of the impeachment hearing the networks scored as such: CBS averaged 1.52 million, ABC  1.29 million viewers, and NBC averaged 1.26 million viewers.   Thursday’s were even worse with CBS averaging 1.4 million, ABC 1.2 million viewers and NBC had 1.1 million viewers.

Now compare that to the weekly daytime soap ratings and total viewers which while it ebbs and slows is still way about this.  According to the study: “The Young & The Restless” has been averaging 3.7 million viewers during the 2019-2020 season and The Bold & The Beautiful averages 3.15 million viewers. ABC’s General Hospital averages 2.15 million viewers while NBC’s Days of Our Lives averages 1.95 million viewers.”

Share your thoughts on the pre=emptions of your favorite soaps, and how the impeachment hearings are, of course, not bringing in higher number in the day-part via the comment section below.

General Hospital Releases Extended Promo “We Have To Lean Into Hope”

As the ABC daytime drama series, General Hospital, continues to be preempted by the impeachment hearings of President Donald Trump, and episodes are not being made available on any other platform at this time, two videos were posted in last 24 hours to the official General Hospital social media accounts.

To tide you over (while you are clamoring for all-new episodes of GH) the soap released an extended promo featuring the folks in Port Charles filled with lots of joy, hope, and love.  It’s main message, “We have to lean into hope” – as the series tells us to “sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride.”

Take a look at some of the reunions, hugs, and special moments featuring the Q’s, Corinthos, Cassadine and other clans in the promo below.

In addition, Finola Hughes (Anna) and Michael Easton (Finn) along with Jophielle Love (Violet) were featured in another video, where the key messaging to fans is that they are currently taping all-new episodes of GH, and that viewers should keep tuned ans posted to GH’s social channels for updates on when new episodes of GH will return.

As of late, GH has been on the upswing in the ratings, too.  So, it’s always frustrating for everyone when weeks of preemptions hit the daytime viewers  experience to enjoy the on-going stories of the soaps.

‘Ambitions’ Canceled By OWN After One Season

After an excellent first season of drama and backstabbing, the soapy nighttime Ambitions has been canceled by OWN.

The cable outlet offered up this statement from OWN President, Tina Perry: “We’re thankful to Will Packer, Jamey Giddens and the entire cast and crew of Ambitions for their creativity and hard work on the show. Every week they delivered great drama, intrigue and a lot of fun storytelling.  We look forward to continue working with Will Packer and his talented team of collaborators in the future.”

The series which starred Robin Givens as Stephanie Lancaster Carlisle was hailed as a multigenerational family saga centered around classic soap character, Stephanie, who finds herself going head to head with some of the most powerful and deceitful players in the city of Atlanta and we learn she can play deceitful like nobody’s business … too!

Ambitions was produced by Will Packer Media in association with Lionsgate and Lionsgate-owned distributor Debmar-Mercury. Packer was executive producer. Arkadie was executive producer/showrunner. Writer Jamey Giddens and Will Packer Media’s Sheila Ducksworth also served as executive producers.

Givens took to Instagram and shared her disappointment on the cancellation. “mood 🙁 found out last week #Ambitions wouldn’t be returning for a second season ….”
