Daytime TV is struggling to stay alive because it stinks..
No soaps will ever be brought back to network TV no network wants the financial burden..
I’m happy that PP has kept 2 soaps from the soap opera graveyard.. 🙂

Daytime TV days are numbered, some day it will be full of infomercials and cheap talk shows.. There is no quality in daytime TV but the soaps and they are very expensive to bring to air..

You are a very right…sometimes i disagree with you but you are right here…none of the three networks will ever revive an old soap or introduce a new one…too costly…Daytime tv will never be as good as it was in the 1960s and 70s when soaps were king and if you didnt like them, there were plenty of alternatives…except for the soaps i rarely watch anyting else during the day…

Never a fan when networks have a hand in the creative end of producing a daytime drama– but I guess at least she has some soap experience so maybe she be more interested in creating the best product instead of the cheapest one. Don’t know how she and JFP get along, but hopefully she can reign her in and make sure they don’t destroy what took Bill Bell a lifetime to build.

Steve kent’s firing will do for a starters. Then fire angelica mcdaniel, jfp Bradley bell. Move Kay Alden back to y and r and put josh griffith as co headwriter. B&B i dont know if the best writer could save your soap since most of your core cast is gone. I love Katherine Kelly lang as an actress but Brooke does not need anymore men.

I think B&B should expand to one hour and Y&R should be
reduced to a half hour.

They make too much money off of YR. It’s been their Daytime cash cow and the cornerstone of their #1 Daytime lineup for over 25 years.

It isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.

Days and GH may need to step it up if they want to stick around.

DOOL and GH have been stepping it up. What is hurting
them are the good ratings for YawneR. When people
see Y&R is #1 in the ratings, they think it must be #1 in
entertainment. Y&R is stinking things up for the others.
YawneR needs to step it up before it kills the chances of
the good soaps!!! Remember, there are some non soap
fans willing to give a soap a try. Chances are, they’ll
view the #1 rated soap first and then no other, thinking
they all are bad because of the sloppy Y&R!

Y&R is #1 in ratings and stinch! My septic tank smells

I don’t know what a septic tank smells like so I’m not sure that’s a good analogy.

Regardless of how you feel about YR, it’ll continue to be the #1 show for a while…unless Phelps kills it.

I hope this Margot chick handles her.

B&B’s Don Diamont Granted Restraining Order Against Alleged Stalker

The Bold and the Beautiful’s Don Diamont (Bill Spencer) was granted a temporary restraining order in L.A. County Superior Court against 37-year-old Quincy Adams; who Diamont says has been harassing him and his family since back in January.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Diamont alleges that Adams took to YouTube saying Don was a Satanist and responsible for COVID, 9/11, and the Iraq war.  In addition, Adams claimed to be connected to him some way from birth.

It was then that Don grew increasingly concerned when the man shared online that he knew where Diamont and his family lived.

Then came June 2nd, when Adams showed up at their front gate and Don received a call from his wife, Cindy.  The police handled Adams from there, but Don was very worried that Adams might harm him, or his family, so he was granted the temporary restraining order against him.

We wish Don and his family nothing but safety in the days ahead.

So what do you think about the claims and actions of Adams on Diamont? Comment below.
