Fans of CBS’s The Bold and the Beautiful can now experience the show in an entirely new dimension with an interactive second-screen experience that syncs in real-time to the show’s broadcast and serves up interesting quizzes, polls, trivia and more.

The Bold and the Beautiful experience – which launches today on the CBS Connect App – marks the first synced second-screen experience for any daytime television program on network TV. The app lets The Bold and the Beautiful fans dig deeper into the show’s main storylines, learn more about the Forrester, Logan and Spencer families, and discover more about the actors who portray the iconic characters.

This is the one soap I don’t happen to watch. I hope this comes out for other soaps. I would love it.

Well, whatever is on the second screen has to be more interesting than the episode they are showing on the first screen, so why not- it beats channel surfing during the boring bits– lol.

Peter Bergman Signs 5-Year Deal with The Young and the Restless

Some of the hottest news on Daytime Emmy night was the reveal that 23-time Daytime Emmy nominee, and 3-time Emmy-winner, Peter Bergman is staying put at The Young and the Restless for quite some time to come, in fact, at least five more years.

Bergman, who plays Genoa City staple, Jack Abbott, has inked a new five-year deal to stay with the CBS daytime drama series, which is a significant contract in the world of soaps.  The usual contact for actors is somewhere between one and four years, with thirteen-week or twenty-six-week cycle, if the show were to not pick up an actors option.

While Y&R has been renewed thus far through the 2024 TV season, it would seem this move to ensure Bergman is sticking around as the show moves past its 50th year on the air, is a vote of confidence by Sony Pictures Television and CBS that the top-rated daytime drama will live on.

Deadline first reported the contract news.  Peter joined Y&R back in 1989, after first successful soap foray on All My Children as Dr, Cliff Warner.

So, what do you think about Peter signing on for five more years at Y&R? Comment below.
