On Monday, British fans of The Bold and the Beautiful got their wish when the soap opera began airing episodes on their new You Tube Channel in the UK! The new online initiative began with Episode 6720, which was the first telecast featuring Thorsten Kaye as the new Ridge Forrester! Even though that was back in December 2013, the new YouTube channel will release two episodes each weekday at 11am, allowing the gap between the US and UK to gradually narrow over the coming months.

B&B’s head honcho Brad Bell commented to UK’s Digital Spy: “We are excited to become the first American soap to air exclusively on YouTube in the UK. Unlike other online VOD services in the territory, YouTube has no pay wall and is used by nearly two-thirds of the UK population.  We plan to release behind-the-scenes and other bonus content created especially for the UK, and also take advantage of the community-building features of YouTube to provide a much richer experience than we could on traditional broadcast television.”

In this new way for fans to see the lives of the Forresters, Logans, and the Spencers, The Bold and the Beautiful has teamed up with UK video specialists Billion Dollar Boy to launch the channel.

Billion Dollar Boy founder Edward East added: “Having an official destination in the UK where fans can watch high quality copies of the show helps solve the supply part of the piracy problem.  Recently there has been nowhere for UK fans to watch the show other than to break the law. We’re very happy to be able to provide a solution to that. We are also actively targeting full copies on YouTube and other video platforms uploaded illegally.”

Watch a preview teaser featuring the stars of B&B and some clips to get fans excited about the new UK You Tube Channel of The Bold and the Beautiful after the jump!  Let us know what you think of the concept of episodes being made available exclusively in the UK to an online platform such as You Tube!

CBS pushes their 2 soaps wherever they can, that is good..
I doubt it will affect the ratings but ya never know..

Y&R and B&B, the two CBS soaps are shown at night on cable..
Being they are available on network TV during the day and during the evening on cable they will bring in new viewers/higher ratings via new evening viewers (seems logical lol

Both DOOL and GH are still daytime network TV, only ..

GH is available On Demand, on Hulu. Hulu Plus, ABC.com and ABC Watch. Days- my fave soap is ONLY on NBC and Hulu.Days needs another platform.

This is great news! The UK fans have been so mistreated over the years, since the early 90’s it aired on at least 4 different channels, there were long gaps in between each channel dropping it and picking it back up, years and years worth of episodes didn’t air and even at some points when it was on it aired in the middle of the night! I hope this lasts, the UK fans deserve this.

‘This Is Us’ Season 6 to have Midseason Premiere and 18 Episode Order as It Concludes

The beloved Pearson family drama This Is Us will end after its sixth and final season, and news today from NBC executives Susan Rovner and Frances Berwick revealed that when the show returns for its last run, it will have a midseason, not a fall, premiere date.

Add to that, the fact that the show will wrap with an 18-episode order.  The execs shared to TV reporters and outlets including Deadline: “We know that saying goodbye to the Pearsons is going to be hard enough. So what we wanted to do is honor the fans and get them as close to an uninterrupted run as we could, which is only possible in midseason,” said Berwick.

Susan Rovner expressed: That by starting the story midseason, it will help make the send-off “a great event for the fans to enjoy.” She went on to say, “I think in Dan’s (Fogelman) hands, it’s going to be fantastic.”

In response to the announced season six conclusion, creator Dan Fogelman tweeted: “Whoever casually first said ‘All good things must come to an end’ never had to end their favorite thing. While sad to have just 1 season left, also grateful to NBC for letting us end the show how, and when, we always intended. We’ll work hard to stick the landing.”

For the past five season the cast has featured: Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown,Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley, Susan Kelechi Watson and Chris Sullivan, and there are still two more episodes of the current season, until the season finale on May 25th in a special time 10 p.m. ET/PT.

So, are you ready to say goodbye to the story of Randall, Kevin, and Kate and the rest of the family? Comment below.

DAYS Jackée Harry Joins Freeform Comedy Pilot ‘Everything’s Trash’ in Recurring Role

Jackée Harry is one busy actress in Hollywood!  On the heels of learning that Harry has signed on more full-time on Days of our Lives in her role as Paulina, comes this bit of casting news.

Harry will join the cast of the Freeform comedy pilot, Everything’s Trash along with another notable actor, George Wallace.  Both will have recurring roles in the show should it go to series.

In story, Everything’s Trash follows Phoebe (Phoebe Robinson), a 30-something podcast star navigating her messy life. When her younger brother Jayden emerges as a leading politician, she’s forced to grow up, so she relies on her friends and close-knit family to help her figure out adulthood, since she doesn’t seem to have a clue. The series is inspired by Robinson’s book, “Everything’s Trash But It’s Okay.”

According to Variety, “Harry will star as Zora, Phoebe and Jayden’s mother. She and her husband are mid-Western transplants, but they have made a home in NY . They love and support their children equally, but truth be known, Zora acts (and dresses) younger than she is and straddles the line between “I’m my daughter’s mother” and “I’m my daughter’s best friend.”  Meanwhile, Wallace will play the role of Abraham, Phoebe and Jayden’s father and husband to Zora.

So, looking forward to hopefully seeing Jackée on a half-comedy sitcom at night, and doing her role on Days of our Lives? Comment below.
