Today at the TCA’s (Television Critics Association) press tour session for CBS, the network boss, Les Moonves spoke on the future, and his thoughts, on the two current daytime drama properties that air on the network … The Bold and the Beautiful and The Young and the Restless!
Moonves related: “They’re doing well. They’re profitable. They were able, a few years back, to do the shows a bit more economically. Our daytime (soaps) have gone way up this year, and their profitability has gone way up. We believe those two soaps will be on for a long, long time. We don’t think the form is dead. Obviously, there are a lot less than there used to be, but we’re very pleased with what they’re doing.”
Doug Davidson (Paul, Y&R) jumped on his Twitter account to acknowledge Moonves statements to the press, stating, “Les Moonves is Da Man. He’s supported
#yr #bb for all of his years @CBS. I know! I was there! #Straight shooter #great leader. @CBSDaytime”
