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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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!!!

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

Y&R Shares ‘Most Memorable Moments Of Dina Mergeron’: What Was Your All-Time Favorite?

Yesterday, viewers of The Young and the Restless needed the hankies as they had to say goodbye to the character of Dina Mergeron and actress Marla Adams who was killed-off the CBS Daytime drama series due to Dina’s battle with Alzheimer’s coming to a a heartbreaking end.

Adams had been with the series on and off for over five decades.  In story and during her run, when Dina reappeared or disappeared it was a game-changer for the Abbott family.  She was a wealthy woman who often put her own needs in front of her children and her marriage to John Abbott (Jerry Douglas).  From affairs, leaving her children when they were young, to becoming a manipulative business woman, Dina Mergeron was no push-over.

When Marla Adams returned to the series four years ago in 2017, it was the intent that during Dina’s decline from Alzheimer’s  disease that she would reunite with her children and help the family find some inner-peace from all the damage and pain she had caused them through the years.

In honor of the wonderful portrayal of Marla Adams, Y&R put together a clip package of some of Dina’s most memorable moments.   You can watch it below!

Then let us know, what was your all time favorite Dina moment via the comment section below.   And if you have not done so already, make sure to check out Michael Fairman TV’s farewell interview with Marla, posted shortly after Dina passed on Friday’s episode.

In the lyrics you here Max sing, “I’m afraid to love you, love you/ Afraid to give in my all.   Then in the chorus he laments: “I’m afraid to love you, love you / Love you with my whole heart.”

 

One of the verses contains the lines: “Don’t want to disappoint you / No, I don’t want to lose you, no, no, no / You make me feel so good inside / I’ve been broken so many times / I’m just trying to stay alive / I’m afraid, I’m afraid.”

“Afraid” has many believing the song was written about Max’s public break-up with Lovato, however, Ehrich tells Billboard: “I hope ‘Afraid’ will help people allow themselves to be vulnerable,  I recorded this song as I was falling in love. It speaks of all the emotions that I was going through at that time.”
