I’m happy for Karla Mosley, but this is the most Brad Bell has written for her in almost a year, and this is after he declared her the new leading lady of B&B. I wish Mr. Bell would stop writing for the Spencer sons and the woman they both love and start writing for the rest of the canvas.

I agree. It was such a refreshing change when Maya’s family was introduced. I enjoyed the whole story about Sasha coming out. The actor who plays Maya’s dad is an excellent actor. It seems to me that they are always finding such wonderful talent, only to have them front and center for but a minute, and then they are back to letting Wyatt and Liam bitch and cry over Steffie. Correctcme if I’m wrong, but I think their was only one brief scene of the grandmother’s doting over the greatly anticipated baby. And now that ivy is back, Liam and the motley crew are going to be more prominent than ever. I don’t understand why they are bringing Thorne and Felicia back. They will have their say for five minutes, and then get shoved out the door again. The Liam/Steffie roller coaster is just starting, with no end in sight.

I love B&B. As much as I love Steffi, Wyatt, Liam, Quinn and Eric, I would love to see more Rick and Maya.

No thanks. Just another example of how this show is still telling a very false story about transgender people by using a woman. It is disrespectful and degrading. The only way to have effectively told any part of this story would have to use a real man/transgennder to play Maya. The show gets publicity and gets to pretend it is tackling a social issue and being relevant, and claiming to make people think…and examine prejudices! This cast and crew had to do NONE of that!! They covered it in rainbows and fairy dust. Do you think Jacob Young would have been so eager to make out with a man?? I highly doubt it. The lack of airtime or any kind of meaningful story cod Maya has been reduced to this stunt. Ya…great schlock t.v. Mr. BELL. Now what? Didnt think that far ahead, did you?

Absolutely completely right on with everything you stated. Everybody going crazy over this great earth shattering story all a sham just like his story about Caroline’s two Moms. Now he is back again with the ad nauseaum love triangle of Liam, Steffy & Wyatt. Same dialogue every day I can go months without watching catch a episode and realize haven’t missed a thing.

Maya was wonderful singing the National Anthem. Please, please get rid of Steffy. or give her a storyline that doesn’t involve weak Liam. Wyatt is a better man for her. Stop repeating the same stories from years past. Why can’t you at least allow ONE couple stay happy for years & years. The story line is really dumb. Give us more of Maya, Rick & their little girl. Ivey and Liam make a very beautiful couple. Love her accent.

While Karla Mosley did very well, I wonder if this was in response to Colin Karpernick refusal to salute when the National Anthem was sung. Baseball season is almost over. ijs

I tweeted my disgust at B&B going POLITICAL this way! Especially using Karla Mosley! I don’t wonder if this is a response to Colin Karpernick, I know it is. I registered my plans to boycott B&B for such stupidity! Not a wise move at all! I have been watching for many years, but you lost me with this move!

I don’t think it really fitted in with the story.

I didn’t like Karla’s phrasing on some of the anthem, but overall she sang well.

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.

ABC’s General Hospital averages 2.15 million viewers while NBC’s Days of Our Lives averages 1.95 million viewers.”
