Thank all that’s unholy.

I wish they’d renew for 2 years at a time. Why can’t they do that?

This is great news. Days is awesome. Better than Y&R.

At least DOOL has the best-looking men on daytime… Casey Moss, Chandler Massey, Freddie Smith, Robert Scott Wilson, Eric Martsolf, Galen Gering, Matthew Ashford, Brock Kelly. And many great veterans also. Let’s hope they all stick around.

Hi Soaphound,
Just read that Casey/J.J will be leaving show during Feb sweeps.Maybe he was getting sick of the lunatic S.Ls as a lot of us are.

Y&R was just renewed for 4 years. Why can’t NBC renew Days for 2 years at least?

Fire the head writer–reduce a lot of characters that aren’t shown for weeks at a time. Try shifting focus to have Bradys/Johnsons take the lead for awhile, bring back either Joey or Stephanie and see how it goes. Marlena/John, Nicole/Eric, etc aren’t driving ratings being front and center. Let’s shake it up.

can they please do something about the historical inaccuracies and redundant dialogue??? If I hear “justin’s beloved wife” “you deserted her/me” “dear poor adrienne’s death” one more time (just a few) one more time I will throw my tv through the window. Then the worst was Kristen telling Nicole something to the effect she hoped she doesn’t have to go through what she has..hey, dumb ass writers Nicole lost two children..so over this..then you have dreams, flashbacks, new pairings that are meh, more return from the dead in another form then themselves, etc. RIDICULOUS

The Bold and the Beautiful to Dedicate Episode to Betty White On What Would Have Been Her 100th Birthday

Television legend, Betty White, who passed away a few weeks ago at the age of 99, will have the upcoming Monday, January 17th of The Bold and the Beautiful dedicated to her.

Within her storied career, Betty played Ann Douglas on The Bold and the Beautiful – the mother to Pam and Stephanie.  She made her final appearances on B&B in 2009 when the show killed-off the character.

White, passed away a few weeks ago on New Year’s Eve, and earlier this week it came to light that she suffered a stroke six days before her death.

Pictured in this post are Alley Mills (Pam_, the late Lee Phillip Bell (Co-creator B&B and Y&R), Betty White and Susan Flannery (Ex-Stephanie).

So, what do you think of B&B honoring Betty on what would have been her 100th birthday by dedicating the episode to her? Comment below.
