I guess those who claim to have quit watching Y&R after MMs departure didnt do much damage to the shows ratings…and i still think Brandon Barash should be cast as the new Adam Newman…im watching a little bit more now!!!

Ahhh ha ha ha.. we can not compete with all that still watch and we never claimed we would but we have a large following and it’s only getting larger because of all the harsh words about fans from JFP and several of the cast members not to mention the barbaric way some of the actors have been treated which has RESULTED IN FIRINGS and resignations. Some fans that truly cared could not bear this and as a result have disowned the show. Because we have principals. That’s all.

And take a look again at the ratings.

I couldn’t watch B&B even under the threat of torture. And watching it IS torture. I thought that maybe with Thorsten Kaye onboard it might at least be entertaining to watch him, a guy who is a good actor, try to do the same with that cast of losers. But one day of that was enough.

And Y&R has become currently unwatchable for me. I’ll try it again when Cady McClain starts appearing. Until then, not a chance.

LoL actually, the ONLY story I can actually tolerate on B&B right now is Hope and Wyatt, but even the Aly losing her mind over them part is starting to turn me off. H

However, majority of the canvas, I can’t bear to watch. I don’t want to see Brooke marry Ridge ONLY because Katie (her sister) told him to. I don’t want to see Ridge get on his high horse about Brooke stealing her sister’s husband WHEN he did it to Thorne years ago. I don’t want to see Maya marrying Carter just because he’s the ONLY other black guy in town. I don’t wanna see Thorne being shuffled off to Forrester…. I never liked Rick and Caroline…. so I rarely when I do actually watch B&B, it’s when Wyatt and Hope are on.

As for Y&R, I literally ONLY watch for one character, and his potential pairing right now, which has not even got off the ground. He is only on screen once a week, so that’s how I’m watching Y&R. I don’t care about the crisis of the week with the Baldwin/Fisher clan, I hate MOST of it not ALL the Newmans, accept Summer, but since she was just in the middle of this Ian Ward/Dylan crap I was fast forwarding. I’m hopeful about Summer and Fenmore…. I hate Abby, I want Jack to get a life, I want Victor dead…..And don’t even get me started on the Nikki’s children….. LoL so yeah, good for them, but not much is keeping me glued to me TV. Most of the time I’m just watching and doing something else, hoping something interesting will happen.

I used to watch for Tyler, but since he’s been paired with Abby, he has also become fast forward material. Oh yeah, and I like Chelsea, but I wish she were more of a bitch. She’s too nice and too trusting.

I’m sorry to say but I find Y&R to be a snoozefest–even with the addition of Tristan Rodgers but B&B is pretty good–still think GH is the best soap though

March 6, 2014 6:17 pm

Goodness Gracious, no one not even congratulating CBS except me! How sad is this???

March 6, 2014 6:25 pm

I was watching every min, plus on TVGN to see TK as Ridge!!

March 6, 2014 6:41 pm

I love the Bold & the beautiful right now. I love the new Ridge. The writing is the best. At last Brook is getting some of the crap she made Taylor live back. I love Wyatt & Hope but I would like to see Steffy come back.Y & R is boring right now. I miss Billy Miller &Michael Muhney. I really think it went down hill since they left. I think it would have been better if the car went over the cliff killing both of them rather than replacing the two of them.

March 7, 2014 6:56 am

I was watching. I’m like B&B a lot right now. Y&R has some good stories. But I would say more are not good. Bring back Gloria and Jeffrey!

March 7, 2014 8:09 am

Maybe the networks should ADD more soap time to their schedules.
This is a trend…

March 7, 2014 8:55 am

Love CBS daytime. I like the fact that they care a lot about their soaps nowadays. What I think makes these numbers more amazing is that NBC had the olympics they aired during the day.

Not surprising that you didn’t mention the 500,000 viewers that Y&R lost in the wake of firing Michael Muhney. Jill Phelps is ruining the show and it won’t be long before it tanks. Be objective, or are you on the CBS payroll? Get it right!

Actually the show is up by almost that same amount since MM announced he was let go.

The week of Dec 16th the show had 4.7 mil viewers.

The most recent ratings aren’t out, but last week, they had 5.2.

And in between, yes, the ratings were up to 5.7 mil. So you can’t use the MM theory, sorry.

Deb S…I’m not a huge fan of JFP myself but inserting an excuse for how MM brought down the ratings is an asinine assumption. Please this is sounding so repetitive about how YR will tank, fixed ratings blah, blah, blah. This has been the delusions of grandeur for many now for 7-8 years. If LML, MAB didn’t tank the YR, JFP is warming the seat because sooner or later she will disappear….

I’ve do have serious concerns for YR and don’t care of some aspects of the show. I have seen improvements in areas where LML & MAB I saw none.

The difference between you & I is my loyal to CBS and have been for over 40 years. Now, if Cassie story playing turns out it will be “Daisy” I will turn off YR, if rumors come true this despised character needs to be forgotten! I will had enough.

This show survives as it always has for me because of the outstanding performance of PB/Jack he is golden!!! Whenever I get down I just watch this guy turn shit into gold and I say you got me!!!!His performance last week with AH shows you how he turns a sublte performance into gold!!!

March 7, 2014 12:56 pm

I am loving bold and beautiful right now!

March 7, 2014 4:26 pm

B&B is my fave US soap. The Aly and Taylor showdown has been a longtime coming — and it’ll be ratings gold! Aly couldn’t help having problems after Taylor mowed her mother down, driving drunk, and never paid for her crime. Glad Brad Bell won’t make Aly “Sheila Carter” Crazy. She can be redeemed; right now the actress is rocking it. Congrats to CBS Daytime!

The only reason Y & R’ ratings were up was because MM and BM’s fans wanted to see their last scenes together to see how that story was handled. Don’t kid yourselves, if you think all the hate for the new Billy is bad, wait until the new Adam comes on your screens, then watch the **** hit the fan.

Hate is a strong word, and shouldn’t be an emotion wasted on an actor replacing an actor who was terminated with cause.

And like the 5.2 million fans have said over and over again…

Just don’t watch.

Don’t watch.

Turn the show off, and go on with your life.

I Hate B&B right now with Kridge & Bell changing Ridge’s history so he can justify the Boring Kridge. Does Bell not care about his long time viewers? Its seems like Bell rather cater to new viewers since they are the only ones buying this Kridge crap. It seems like Ridge is more like Zach from All My Children Soap Opera. Zach had a love for Poetry Ridge never did.

March 9, 2014 11:19 am

So much for Miller and Muhney ruling the roost, lol. YR is an ensemble effort and a well established over 40 year old brand. It will take alot more than the departure of a few popular actors and a somewhat inept executive producer to bring this show down.

Breaking News

The New Men of B&B Revealed

The Bold and the Beautiful has been the first soap back in production since COVID-19, and now comes exciting casting news that will surely bring some new energy and drama to the CBS Daytime drama series.

First, the series has decided to recast the role of Zende Forrester Dominquez last played by Daytime Emmy-winner Rome Flynn (2015-2017).   Now Delon de Metz will be taking on the role of adopted son of Kristen Forrester and Tony Dominguez.

And in addition, potentially part of the mystery we alluded to earlier in the week as to just who may be the new man in Steffy Forrester’s  (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) life, may have been answered with the casting of Tanner Novlan in the role of Dr. John ‘Finn’ Finnegan.

Novlan is married to former ‘Bold and Beautiful’ star Kayla Ewell (Ex-Caitlin Ramirez) and has been recently seen in the Liberty Mutual commercials where he plays an actor trying to say the lines of dialog required of him but keeps messing it up.   He was also recently seen in 2019 on the CW’s Roswell, New Mexico series.

TV Line broke the casting news.

So, what are your thoughts of a new Zende and a new doctor coming to The Bold and the Beautiful? Comment below.

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS Wally Kurth, Mary Beth Evans & Chandler Massey Take You Behind the Scenes of Kayla and Justin’s Wedding

On Wednesday’s heartbreaking episode of Days of our Lives, viewers saw just how the nuptials of Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Justin (Wally Kurth) eventually wound up!

Justin told Kayla that Steve (Stephen Nichols) still loves her, which put a halt to the proceedings and ended the romantic relationship between the two dear friends, who found love with one another following Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) death, and Kayla believing Steve did not want her back.

Now, The DOOL app has posted a rare behind the scenes view of the making of the wedding – with moments from the key scenes, rehearsals and interviews with the cast involved.

Chandler Massey (Will) weighs-in on Will’s debut as a wedding officiant and how that went south, while Mary Beth Evans and Wally Kurth shared why they loved this storyline so much.

Wally expresses how the last six months have been some of the best storylines of his soap career, while Mary Beth says that Justin and Kayla’s relationship was so adult and that in real life, both actors have known about people who fall in love with their dear friend, after losing their significant other whether it be by divorce, or death, or whatever the circumstance.

If you don’t already have the DOOL app on your mobile device to watch the segment, you can get more info to download here.

We will have more to say on the memorable performances at Michael Fairman TV later in the week.
