Sunday, March 23, 2014 will mark the 27th anniversary of The Bold and the Beautiful’s premiere on the CBS Television Network.  This anniversary brings B&B into the top ten list of the longest running scripted dramas broadcast on network television.

“Twenty-seven years on television is a wonderful accomplishment,” said Executive Producer and Head Writer, Bradley Bell. “I work with an amazing ensemble of cast, production crew, writers and staff.  I am grateful to CBS for their long standing commitment to The Bold and the Beautiful and to CBS Daytime executives Angelica McDaniel and Margot Wain for their unwavering support.  None of this would be possible if it were not for our fans whose loyalty and dedication to the show have allowed us to reach this incredible milestone.”

The only daytime drama set in a real, and not fictional location, B&B prides itself on setting the bar by frequently taking production out of the studio and on location. Spring 2014 marked the ninth international remote taken by B&B in the show’s 27 year-history, going to the UAE, Dubai and Abu Dhabi with original cast member Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke Logan) as well as Don Diamont (Bill Spencer) and Thorsten Kaye (Ridge Forrester). Those episodes are set to air in late May and early June 2014. Previous international locations include Monaco, Puglia, Italy, Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, Sydney, Australia, Portofino, Italy, Venice, Italy, Lake Como, Italy and Barbados. Additionally, B&B has taped in numerous U.S. locations around Southern California, on the U.S. Virgin Island of St. Thomas and multiple times in Aspen, Colorado.

In June 2013, B&B received its eighth Golden Nymph Award at the International TV Audience Awards in the “Telenovela/Soap Opera” category at the Monte Carlo Television Festival.  In 2011, B&B received its third consecutive Emmy award for “Outstanding Daytime Drama Series”.  In 2010, Guinness World Records named The Bold and the Beautiful the Most Popular Daytime Soap Currently on TV.

The Bold and the Beautiful is a Bell-Phillip Television production, broadcast weekdays (1:30-2:00 PM, ET, 12:30-1:00 PM PT) on the CBS Television Network. Since May 2001, it is the first and only daytime drama to simulcast in Spanish utilizing SAP (Secondary Audio Program) technology. Bradley P. Bell is the Executive Producer and Head Writer.

So, what do you think about B&B turning 27, and the accomplishments the soap has had worldwide and domestically?  Let us know!

Hard to believe it has been only 27 years- can’t remember what it was like before B&B! That is more than half my life- yikes! When B&B first appeared I remember not being to thrilled with the 30minute ‘filler’ as it was placed between 2 long standing daytime dramas…(that are no longer on the air). However, the characters of Brooke and Stefanie and oh my Sally Spectra- were so engaging that you simply got pulled in for that 30minutes- and 27 years later- it is all Bill, Wyatt, Quinn and Katie……….Congrats on 27 years!!! Amazing!!! Well Done!

Congratulations to the cast and crew, however the writing on this show is dreadful. It’s a shame that once well-written dramas like All My Children, As the World Turns, Guiding Light, and One Life to Live are gone while a show featuring endless incestuous triangles playing out at breakneck speed is going strong.

So true. It’s really lazy writing and all about given a certain audience what they are use to.

If B&B and I am still alive in 27 more years, I will become a faithful viewer. If Michael Fairman Soaps is still going strong at that point, my username will be B&Bisnotacartoon.

Its golden years are far behind but the arrival of Thorsten Kaye has brought so much to the show, specially a great amount of class, natural elegance and charm that has been lacking for so long. He has amazing chemistry with Katie. It’s nice to see Stephanie not to be forgotten – she was the Queen of the Forrester family and Flannery the heart of the show – irreplaceable but I hope BB keeps showing flashbacks of Stephanie. And please let Brooke finally mature and become the new matriarch 🙂 P. S. Bring Thomas back as a gay. It’s high… Read more »

I love Thorsten Kaye and agree that he brings class and charm wherever he goes, but his arrival, unfortunately, hasn’t helped the writing any. I’ve also seen what it’s like when he has chemistry with his leading lady, so I’m not feeling it so much here, but to each his own. What I’d really like to see is for Brad Bell to put an end to the constant swapping of partners and the whole, “keep it within the family” mentality and write some stories that slow down and take time to develop without relying solely on triangles and insta-love for… Read more »

B&B is fun to watch, beautifully filmed. Only a few little tweaks and it’d be even better. No fashion-based soap should be sans gay characters involved in the rag business. That said, Days right now is the US soap that is the most ground-breaking: No other soap has done a gay SL better than Days. Days is tops there, and no other soap has come close. Y&R easily has the worst gay SLs ever on daytime. I hope Days will be best soap at this year’s Emmys. B&B is good, but there’s room for improvement. Brad Bell is capable, but… Read more »

Ingo Rademacher Speaks Out On His Dismissal From GH Sharing: “I Was Hoping to Play Jax For Another 10 or 25 Years and Unfortunately, That’s Not Going to Happen”

For the first time since he was fired for not adhering to General Hospital’s and Disney/ABC’s Covid-19 vaccine mandate, Ingo Rademacher (Ex-Jax), addressed his exit from the soap opera via an “official video” message on his Instagram account.

Ingo expressed: “I’m sorry that I didn’t put out this video earlier, but this is about thanking you guys, the fans of the show and also the GH crew and cast. I was on the show for 25 years. They were like my family a lot of the people there. I was hoping to play Jax for another 10 or 25 years and unfortunately, that’s not going to happen. I want to thank you guys for sticking with Jax for 25 years and I’m sorry that I’m not there anymore to play Jax, which is still something that I am trying to process  … it’s just kind of crazy.”

Rademacher also took aim at his former co-star, Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) for announcing on Twitter that he was no longer on the show, before he had a chance to do so, which he says was a huge disappointment to him given that they worked together for 25 years.

He went on to say how he appreciated all the positive comments from the fans adding, “A lot of you come on there to say that you’re vaccinated but stand for medical freedom, I love hearing that, because I believe it should be a choice.”  Ingo continued to express his view, “I don’t agree with vaccine mandates or corporations ever being able to mandate a vaccine to keep your job.”

The actor closed with another nod to the viewers of GH adding, “Thank you so much for supporting me for 25 years. I will have more news later on, but for now, just wanted to thank all of you amazing fans. Thank you.”

You can watch Rademacher’s full statement via his IG post below.  Then, let us know what you thought of Ingo’s long-awaited exit message in the comment section.

I’m so impressed with the way they navigate the Covid protocols. It’s not easy but we’ll worth it. We’ve got some fun storylines coming up. I’ve been thrown in the middle of a current storyline and I think Felicia’s part in it gives it some color. Stay tuned!”

Earlier in the week on Tuesday via Twitter, Kristina expressed: “Tomorrow I head back to work on General Hospital! Lucky me. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of that family once again. Here we go. More to come. Felicia Scorpio rides again.”

Wagner began her GH role as Felicia Cummings, the Aztec princess back in 1984 and has appeared on and off the show since then.
