True Patrick… They will essentially bolster CBS by not trying harder… Yes CBS uses the same Bell model for their shows …good or bad EP’s and/or writers it always works on some level…. By 2018 Days audience will be CBS’s… you can’t keep telling fans EVERY year.. Wait till September and our new writers… Yeah we fired then before but they’re better now they get it… And a pig can wear a bikini and take the world by storm.. GIVE ME A BREAK LOL

I know Y&R has been #1 for a bazillion years but to see it improve from last years number is good for the format in general.

B&B is a great show. I love the pacing and the aerial shots. Rena Sofer, Heather Tom, Scott Clifton, Katherine Kelly Lang and Don Diamont are my favorites.

B&B is the only soap to make money internationally—I do remember reading some time ago that it is the #1 show in Italy. Rena Sofer is a big draw for me too because I love the hell Quinn raises.

The motto for CBS Daytime is if it ain’t broke don’t fix it– they have a solid daytime line up with good numbers they would be fools to mess with it.

Well that’s all good news except for The Talk, which is a throne for “Mrs. O” to sit on and recieve worship from all and joke about how much plastic surgery she has had. Who knew do many wantef to watch that??,

Timmin girlfriend you need to chill out, learn how to spell Sheryl OK lol. She Spells her first name with an S, not a C. Sharon is a cool chic, she is straight to the point. no BS with her. Sheryl is funny, loud and a terrific woman. Julie has grown on me, I love her now.

It’s good news and I’m pleased, but I can’t help but still feel a little bitter, even after all these years. If CBS had shown the same concern and care for “Guiding Light” and “As the World Turns” as it has for the Bell serials, we’d have four soaps on CBS Daytime.

Daytime tv is struggling to stay alive and can’t pay for much of anything, the soaps are extreme money out for daytime tv..
We are very fortunate that we the 4 soaps ..

Daytime tv is failing, we have to be grateful that there are 4 soaps..

I agree. It’s horrible that they were replaced by game shows, which I refuse to watch.

Glad to see CBS stick with their daytime shows. Not that they are always perfect like recent soap promos, IMO. But at least they promote them. Makes you wonder if ABC had invested money, imagination, and a little re-freshing into AMC and OLTL to adapt for changing daytime viewing demos and habits, where their daytime would be now. It just always boggles my mind that you alienate a long standing, loyal soap viewer (many of whom have boycotted ABC ever since) by cancelling their soaps, and try to start from scratch attracting a new audience. And then there’s the Kelly thing. Is the CBS and ABC culture that different?

Rose

Talk about imagination with a little humor…LazyBoy is running a fun ad in my market with Brooke Shields that is a take on soap operas, Cassadines and Stavros. Guess they think there’s an audience/customer.

Constantine from American Idol and B&B stars in the ad with her.

What happened to Brooke’s career! I think the male lead was a former American Idol?

Oh yeah I’ve seen that. It reminds me of her stint on Friends where she was a soap opera fan acting like a soap actor with Joey.

You ask an interesting question Rose. The goal of all the networks is to spend the least amount for programming while making the most from advertising. I think CBS watched the continuing fire storm of rage against the alphabet network/mouse company for canceling AMC and OLTL and said, “We don’t want any part of this.” So, CBS will tighten the budget while keeping their programs on the air for as long as possible.

I am definitely one who has boycotted the alphabet network since the last day One Life to Live aired and will continue to do so.

Rose

Maybe part of the $ tightening comes from not spending a lot on the sets. I’ve noticed long time viewers to Y&R commenting about this, like Catherine’s house.

This is good news. I’ve always felt the best acting on television is done on daytime. And when you consider their hectic filming schedule and the partial sets they often work on, it’s even more admirable. Consider the concentration and focus it must take to make the shows believable and dramatic, without a lot of the perks of nighttime series. Soaps rule!

I sincerely am happy for them both even though they have changed so much it’s called learning to roll with the times!

The CBS game shows and “The Talk” are way more profitable than the CBS soaps. Some of the profits of those shows are used to help Y&R and B&B. Viewers who want to crush the CBS soaps shouldn’t watch the other CBS daytime programs.

GH and DAYS fans should also consider this: Each time you watch game and talk shows, the more likely your soap will be replaced with a game or talk show.

Rose

But…CURSES, CBS cancelled one of my favorite nighttime show…’Persons Of Interest.’ From what I’ve read, fans of the show are not happy at all, the ratings were fine, but it could have something to do with Warner Brothers “owning” POI. It’s a shame when you have a really interesting show that gets cancelled in a “sea” of relatity shows.

Drew Barrymore Daytime Talk Show Pilot In The Works

This fall, new talkers from Tamron Hall and Kelly Clarkson will be part of the daytime television landscape, and now comes word that Drew Barrymore may enter the space with a new talk show for her that is in development with the pilot being shot this coming week.

According to Variety, details of the proposed one-hour show are not all clear, but Drew is said to be one of the executive producers of the pilot episode and yet there is no showrunner attached to the project at this time.  Barrymore’s company, Flower Films is likely attached as well.

Back in 2016, Barrymore had a deal in place with Warner Brothers Telepictures for a talk show, but that never came to pass, in part to a lukewarm response from TV station groups at that time.

However now the new regime at CBS’ syndication arm is said to have ‘high hopes’ for the show and they feel that Drew will appeal and do well in the daytime arena.

Barrymore recently appeared in her third season of  Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet in its 30 episode season. Through her Flower Films she was been an executive producer on unscripted series including TLC’s Rattled and VH1’s Tough Love.

So, would you be interested. or intrigued to see what kind of show Drew Barrymore has to offer in daytime? Think she would be a good host? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

The Bold and the Beautiful Ratings Winner With Phoebe is Beth Reveal

Great news for The Bold and the Beautiful and their long-awaited payoff: that the little girl being raised by Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) as “Phoebe” is really Liam (Scott Clifton) and Hope’s (Annika Noelle) daughter, Beth, who they believed had died in the long and twisty baby switch storyline.

B&B was the highest rated daytime television show in the key 25-54 womens demo and the first time in the 32-year-old history of the CBS sudser that it has been atop of that demo. That is not only among the network soaps but all series genres in daytime for the week of August 5-9 –  quite the feat.

During the ratings week, Liam figured out that Phoebe was Beth, and eventually after Thomas’ (Matt Atkinson) manipulations told Hope the truth.

All this goes to show that as frustrated as viewers get wanting the truth to come out in a story they follow; when it finally does, they are along for the ride. Something B&B executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell does exceptionally well with big umbrella storylines that hold major ramifications for many on the canvas.

Congrats to Brad and the B&B team!

So, what do you think of BOLD’s performance in the ratings for the big week in story? Comment below

Kelly Monaco Addresses Billy Miller’s Departure From GH

In a post via her twitter account, General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco (Sam) shared her heartbreak on her longtime scene partner, Billy Miller’s (Drew) exit from the ABC daytime drama series.  This was the first time that Kelly addressed the situation in a public forum.

Miller came on to GH back in 2014 as Jason Morgan, following the departure of Steve Burton, who then wound up on Y&R.  When Burton returned to GH in 2017, Miller’s part was then turned-in-to, Jason’s twin, Drew Cain.

Through a great portion of Miller’s run on GH, he was paired romantically on -screen with Monaco and the duo were, and have remained, one of the most popular duo’s in daytime.

Monaco expressed the following in her message: “I feel like I have to address this situation. #BillyMiller ‘s untimely departure from #gh. Honestly, I can not come up with the words to describe how I feel about this decision… a decision that may not be what our audience thinks to be true. I’m heartbroken… more to come.”
