With L+3 ratings (available through September 7, 2013), BBAD’s audience grew significantly, averaging 364,000 total viewers. BBAD, the live, late night companion show to CBS’s Big Brother  currently airs exclusively on TVGN seven nights a week (Saturday-Wednesday 12:00-2:00 AM, live ET/delayed PT; Thursdays 1:00-3:00 AM, live ET/delayed PT; Fridays 11:00 PM-2:00 AM, live ET/delayed PT).

Will Days of our Lives be airing on TVGN? When it does, I will
not only be a fan of DOOL, but will become a loyal fan of Y&R.

Who cares about the stripper Nikki! What is going on with this show. Avery she got to go also! Annoying girl! Nobody got time for any of that! Nikki is just ratchet.

The main reason Y&R is getting viewers on TVGN;
It airs Monday through Friday at 7:00-8:00 PM ..

If all the soaps had an evening time slot they all would do much better..

I agree! I remember reading that other countries air our soaps
at night and have a lot of viewers. We’re being cheated!!!

I watched it last night because it had been pre-empted during the day. Wish B&B and Days also aired at night.

I’m a super fan of Soap Operas. I started watching at a very young age, and I loved hearing my aunts discuss what went on for that day. I watched soaps on CBS, NBC and ABC, this was way before cable or satellite was even thought about. I’m glad that the soaps have found a home in the afternoon. Hopefully TBATB will join the others that enjoy the extended life on TVGN and the Soap station. This is one fan who will continue to watch.

Nathalie Kelley Says She Is Not Returning To DYNASTY For Season 2

In a surprise admission during an interview with E Online, one of the core members of CW’s Dynasty reboot, Nathalie Kelley revealed she is not filming season 2 of the primetime sudser when it resumes filming next month.

Kelley plays Blake’s (Grant Show) wife, Cristal, who ended the season one cliffhanger in a precarious predicament after being shot by Claudia Blaisdel (Brianna Brown), while the Carrington mansion went up in flames, as well.

Kelley tells E! “I won’t be returning for Season 2.”  She went on to say as of the fate of Cristal:  ” Is it a coma? Is it death? … I actually don’t know. But I know that I’m not going to Atlanta in July, that I’m staying (in Los Angeles) … I’ve got my life back.”

Dynasty returns for its all-new season beginning on Friday, October 12th.

So, disappointed to hear there will be no Nathalie on season 2 of Dynasty?  How do you think they will write Cristal out of the story:  Coma … her body found will not be found … or is she truly dead?  Share your theories in the comment section below.

ABC Officially Picks Up ‘Roseanne’ Spinoff, ‘The Conners’ With No Roseanne Barr Participation

Word on late Thursday afternoon is that ABC has now officially moved forward and gave a pick-up to the Roseanne spinoff series, The Conners.   

As viewers know, there had been speculation that the series would revolve around Sara Gilbert’s character of Darlene, but now the other concept with the entire family in the title is the direction the new series will go (although it is said to be the “working title” of the series.)

The Conners received a ten episode order and will make the fall TV schedule, and will reside on Tuesday night’s on ABC at 8PM.

Roseanne Barr’s controversial tweets led to the network’s swift decision to cancel her series.

In the new deal, Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in The Conners after reaching a settlement with series producer, Tom Werner.

The Conners will feature the rest of the Roseanne core cast including: John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, and Michael Fishman.

According to Deadline:  It is unclear how exactly Barr’s character will be written off but ABC describes it as “a sudden turn of events.”  On the new show, after a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family – Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. – grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns – with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails.

In a statement ABC commented: “The Conners’ stories demonstrate that families can always find common ground through conversation, laughter and love. The spinoff will continue to portray contemporary issues that are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago.”

A major turning point to greenlight the series came when the fact that the new series does not feature Barr’s character Roseanne Conner, which rights to which she is said to maintain, paved the way for an agreement with no Barr.

So, glad to hear The Conners will continue sans Roseanne? Comment below.
