And from new numbers released by TVGN in their first quartet with their latest acquisition, The Young and the Restless, the CBS soap is doing quite well for the cabler, as is its other new hit; Big Brother: After Dark!

TVGN is touting that Y&R and Big Brother: After Dark have delivered triple digit increases in viewers and women 25-54 for the first 10 weeks of the third quarter, according to Nielsen live plus same day ratings.  “The two fan-obsessed shows book-ending our primetime line-up—Big Brother: After Dark and Y&R—have helped TVGN become the fastest growing entertainment network in the country,” said Brad Schwartz, President of Entertainment and Media, TVGN.

VGN’s quarter-to-date (July 1 through September 8, 2013) ratings versus the second quarter 2013 delivery average include the following highlights: The Young and the Restless on TVGN, which airs every weeknight at 7:00 PM ET/PT, drove triple digit increases for the time period among households (+198%) and women 25-54 (+125%). Y&R has averaged 362,000 total viewers, a +199% increase in the time period and delivered TVGN’s biggest weekly audience Monday through Friday at 7:00-8:00 PM ever among households and women 25-54.

Meanwhile, Big Brother: After Dark (BBAD) drove triple digit increases among households (+231%) and women 25-54 (+290%) in late night. BBAD has averaged 243,000 total viewers, a +238% increase in the time period and delivered TVGN’s biggest late night weekly audience ever among households and women 25-54. 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.

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.

Eileen Davidson, Vince Van Patten & Caitlyn Jenner In Cast Of New Sitcom ‘Duke of the Valley’

A fictional apartment building featuring a set of very eccentric tenants in the San Fernando Valley of Southern California is the backdrop for a new indie comedy sitcom based on the memoirs of the late Dick Van Patten, best known for his role on the ABC series, Eight is Enough.

The show entitled, Duke of the Valley is co-created by Dick’s son, Vince Van Patten and his grandson, Duke Van Patten, who also wrote the series together. In addition, Vince is also directing and one of the producers of the series.

According to The Wrap, Caitlyn Jenner will star as Heather a transgender “white trash” woman who sells perfume at the counter of Macy’s.  Others in the cast include: Vince Van Patten’s wife and two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Eileen Davidson (Ashley, Y&R and Ex- DAYS and RHOBH), who plays Brenda, a washed-up actress who can’t accept that her career in showbiz is over.

Vince Van Patten takes on the role of a homeless killer named Skipy, who demands to camp outside the apartment building.  Meanwhile, Duke Van Patten plays himself as an actor in Hollywood living in a dingy apartment building in the San Fernando Valley that happens to be owned by his ‘crazy uncle Jimmy”, played by none other than James Van Patten.

Duke of the Valley is currently in production, but without a network or streaming service attached to it yet.  Thus, no release date has been set as this time either.

So, what do you think of the premise of Duke of the Valley featuring Caitlyn, Eileen and Vincent? Comment below!
