The Bold and the Beautiful Delivers Best Second Quarter Ratings Since 2006!



It’s a good time to be bold and beautiful!  Brad Bell (EP and head writer, B&B)  and his writing and producing teams, along with its cast, have turned in quite the ratings performance in the just completed second quarter of 2015!

According to numbers released today by CBS, The Bold and the Beautiful delivered its biggest second quarter audience since 2006, averaging 3.95 million total viewers which is up +5% from last year.

On the strength of the disclosure of trans woman Maya Avant (Karla Mosley) and her love story with Rick Forrester (Jacob Young), and the ramifications of it, B&B scored its best numbers in almost ten years!  The show is also continuing to keep their audience interested with their other storylines as well, as indicated by their uptake in viewers.

What do you think about B&B’s total viewers and ratings number giving it the best second quarter in almost a decade?  Has the series been the best it has been in a long, long time?  Share your thoughts below!

I can see how a disclosure of a trans woman would bring in the curious and others, of course..
ALL the soaps have a hook at one time or another, and that was good one..
WTG, B&B !

As for the ratings, the sponsors and suits go by the numbers of-
September to September <— is when they look for all the statistics .
(they don't bother much with the weekly)

(google) Once there was 54 soaps, wow what a list I read,, then down to 19 main soaps then there was 12, now just the 4 ..
Have to support the soaps ..

I see the remaining 4 soaps remaining..
Some stories are better and more intriguing than others, it's a rollercoaster of ups and downs..

Pratt is whipping Y&R into shape, it's the best it has been in years!!
GH will pick up after these stories end and the new begin, a lot of good stuff coming..
DOOL looked as if it were cleaning house and bringing in new to tune it up, that is good..

I like Ron and Pratt .. I like both Y&R but GH has my heart/#1 !! 🙂



Ron is killing GH!!! The show is on a downward free fall!! If TPTB do not replace him soon those ratings will be going down even more …… Tony is NOT getting the exit storyline he deserves! Been watching for 43+ years and I barely recognize this show anymore – the rate they are going I will be tuning out when his story ends #Whyratingsaresolow …. Rewriting history instead of building from it. Not the way to go! 🙁


Yes the hook was Maya/Myron and how is everyone going to react . The writers shocked me by having JR I mean RIck lover her anyway. I thought for sure this was just goingto be their vehicle to send him back to Caroline .

Where I really give props to B+B is after that story played out I was fully prepared to be bored and change the channel again then thy kept having even better stories like Bill’s final say in Forrester and crazy Aly going to bring some pain .

Bravo B+B from cant stomach to cant miss in a year

Brad Bell’s genius.


Jacob Young and Karla Mosley are TEARING up the screen lately! I am so excited that the writers and producers would do this storyline and take the chance they did. I have so many friends that are in the LGBT community, and last month was a historic month for them. B&B gained a lot of respect from myself (which they already had


After same story lines being recycled a bunch in the entire soap world, the Maya storyline actually shocked me, and that’s hard to do! I thought it was great and creative, but Rick’s reaction was totally unrealistic. If my hubby found out I was born a man and stole his choice about that including the choice of picking a woman who could carry his child the relationship would be toast. That being said, it was awesome and I was totally glued to the tv! Way to go, B&B for earning your viewers with honest to goodness creativity!!!


Go B&B!
CBS is on a roll!


Karla Mosley & Jacob Young have just been absolutely amazing and seeing Rick & Maya’s journey has been well there really are not any good enough words to describe it but its been flawless is a good start. Also the show in general has been pretty well balanced with all their storylines B&B have been amazing all found in 2015 so the ratings definitely show reflect that

Former telenovela star, Jason Canela (Arturo) is staying put in Genoa City.  Canela, who is of Cuban descent, was originally brought on to The Young and the Restless as a building contractor, who winds up being the boy toy of none other than Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott).

Now as Arturo becomes more entrenched in the Newman clan, Canela posted on his Instagram account that the CBS soap has signed him on as a contract player.

Jason expressed: “I’ve always believed that there are two types of artists. There are working ones and blessed ones. Thankfully I’ve had an incredible support system to always motivate me and help me push forward no matter how tough things got while I was working to become a better version of me so that one day I could be blessed. To every artist out there who feels discouraged because they have not booked that role or gotten that verse picked up in a track just remember that our line of work is not the easiest but if you truly love it then you know that if you continue to PUT IN THE WORK one day you will be blessed. Thank you to Mal Young, Sony, CBS & The Young and the Restless for believing in me and making me feel at home in Genoa city and blessing me with the opportunity to bring life to Arturo Rosales. I’m proud and honored to officially be a full time member of the The Young and the Restless family.” #Blessed #EnjoyEveryMoment
