The Bold and the Beautiful Turns 33 Today; Thanks Fans For Tuning In Each and Every Day

Photo: JPI

It was first back on this date in 1987 that we became familiar with the Forrester and the Logans, and from there all the other enduring familial connections that have remained, or come and gone.   Throughout it all, one thing is for sure. The Bold and the Beautiful remains the #2 soap in America and the most-watched soap opera in the world, with its huge worldwide reach and popularity.

B&B still has two original series stars attached to the show who are still as vibrant and as important as ever.  Of course, we are talking about Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) and John McCook (Eric).

We wanted to thank all of the loyal B&B fans for tuning in each and every weekday. And a special shoutout to @JohnMcCook44 and @KatherineKellyL  who have been on our cast since DAY ONE!”

John McCook shared: “It’s sobering time in the USA today, but in spite of that, we take great pride and happiness to celebrate (even without a gleeful get-together) our B&B 33rd birthday today!! Our success as a show is your success as our fabulous fan base…So grateful to you all!!”

After Susan left the show did a nose dive it’s never come back ! Brad has no respect for his actors and he shows that with how he treats them he has had hundreds of good actors and he just dumps them like a small child who gets tired of a toy no explanation what so ever they just poof disappear from the screen !

Happy Happy Birthday The Bold and the Beautiful! I was a sophomore in high school when you premiered. Thank you for the loves, laugh, fashion, and inspiration. I wrote a character and plot for Sally. After Bradley Bell sent me a script for encouragement (which I still have) I ended up doing internships at both Soap Opera Weekly in 2001 and Soap Opera Digest 2002. I’m a writer, today. Moved away from soaps and more into slice-of-life recently. Now, home quarantined…I’m watching the Fantastic Four soaps again for comfort and familiarity. Yes, I’m hyper critical, however, only want to be… Read more »

I really miss B&B. I had watched from the beginning, but with the “new Thomas” SL, I just had to stop. It was too disturbing and sickening to watch. If he ever leaves the show,I will certainly start watching again.

I liked the episodes with the new Thomas except his obsession with Dope!!! The way Ridge stuck up for him instead of listening to Broke like he always does & letting her lead him around by the nose!! Ridge needs to dump Broke for good!!!

Isn’t that funny? I couldn’t stand Stephanie, and more recently Taylor, who turned out to be as nutty as her patients.

Corbin Bernsen to Reprise His Role of Arnie Becker in ‘LA Law’ Revival Pilot

Corbin Bernsen (Father Todd, The Young and the Restless) and the son of Y&R’s late great Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor) has signed on to reprise his signature primetime television role of womanizing lawyer Arnie Becker in the upcoming LA Law revival pilot.

This makes Corbin the co-lead of the series alongside Blair Underwood (Ex-OLTL) who previously signed on to the pilot to reprise his role of Jonathan Rollins.  ABC has greenlit the pilot.

According to Deadline, it is believed that Bernsen and Underwood will be the only original members of the mid 80’s-90’s legal drama on NBC in the pilot, but more may guest-star if the show gets picked up for a full-season order.

In the premise of the reboot, the law firm of McKenzie Brackman, now named Becker Rollins, reinvents itself as a litigation firm specializing in only the most high profile, boundary pushing and incendiary cases.  The show will feature familiar characters working alongside new ones on the most hot button issues of the day.  As for Bernsen’s Becker, now in his 60’s, look for him to struggle with a rapidly shifting sexual and political landscape.

The original LA Law ran for eight seasons from September 15, 1986 to May 19, 1994 on NBC.

So, what do you think of Corbin taking on the role of Arnie Becket in a revival of LA Law? Would you be intrigued to check out the show if it makes it to series? Comment below.
