Looks like TVGN (TV Guide Network) is becoming your cable soap connection!  After the cablers previously acquisition of The Young and the Restless, which debuted this past summer, now comes news that TVGN will also become the exclusive cable home to television’s most watched daytime drama series in the world, The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B), starting on Monday, December 2.

TVGN will encore the prior day’s B&B episode weekdays at 6:30 PM ET/PT, immediately preceding TVGN’s encore airings of The Young and the Restless (weekdays at 7:00 PM ET/PT). In addition, fans can catch-up on all five of the prior week’s most recent episodes on TVGN every Sunday from 11:00 AM ET/PT—1:30 PM ET/PT starting on December 8.

The Bold and the Beautiful has been one of the most popular daytime dramas on television for more than two decades and now, for the first time ever, the series will be making its cable TV debut, giving loyal viewers more opportunities to catch-up on their favorite show,”  said Brad Schwartz, President, Entertainment and Media, TVGN.  The Young and the Restless has made TVGN one of the top female networks in the country, weekdays at 7pm.  It only made sense to give B&B fans what they’ve been demanding from us.”

“I am looking forward to a successful partnership with TVGN,” said Bradley Bell, Executive Producer and Head Writer of The Bold and the Beautiful. “Our fans have asked us for an opportunity to watch a second run. I’m delighted that we will now be able to fulfill that desire with such an esteemed cable network.”

So what do you think about B&B finally having a cable television home?  What do you think about TVGN’s soap line-up?  Comment below!

That would be great except for those who don’t get TVGN. My cable company doesn’t carry it for some reason.
I wish all the soaps were available “On Demand”!!!

I don’t see a cable outlet for GH unfortunately since all of Disney’s are kid oriented.
ComcastNBCU have alot of outlets to put DAYS on if they choose.

Don’t watch either and of course TVGN is a CBS sibling so we won’t be seeing GH or DOOL on that channel which is a bummer.

I can only hope GH and Days will make it there to since the idiots at ABC/Disney is shutting down soapnet. All the old shows of the soaps will be gone..Not downloading anything from ABC. Wasn’t for GH I would never turn on ABC anymore…

Me too. As a longtime Soapnet viewer I’m so disappointed (yet again) with ABC/D. My ATT Uverse doesn’t carry TVGN, but I’m happy for soap fans who have access.

Y&R and BB are the most watched daytime drama series in the world, yes the world, the 2 soaps are shown in 34 countries (GH in USA and Canada, only)

BB a Y&R can now be seen during the evening and most the day Saturday on cable TVGN.
GH is shown an hour once a week on a bad time-slot..

Y&R and BB, no matter how awful Y&R is, it will always be #1 because of marketing ..

I think that’s great! Now let them get GH and Days also…especially considering SoapNet is going away!

IF, GH were to be shown during the evening, it would rule the soap world..

Now, Y&R and BB is aired on network TV daytime and also cable TV evenings, and cable Saturday..

Both are not the best soaps, no matter how many viewers they get.. GH is the best soap but does not have the means to be watch on cable during the evening and Saturdays nor through out the world..

I wish ABC would run GH on one of their affiliated Cable networks during the evening..

I would love TVGN to also pick up GH, now that SoapNet will be gone as of 12/31/13, but I am not so sure that will happen, since TVGN is affiliated with CBS, so I it is unlikely that they would want to promote a soap from ABC, but I can still hope!

I think that is great but I would love to see B&B for 1 hour instead of only 1/2 hour. I am a new viewer and just fell in love with all the characters. I would only hope that 1/2 would change to a hour of the show.

Thank you,

Traci

I would love B&B to expand to a full hour also, but for a completely different reason.

Why not show the current or same day show like Y&R does. I don’t want to see the prior days show. That makes it confusing.

B&B’s Don Diamont Returns To Y&R

He played Brad Carlton on The Young and the Restless from 1985-2009 before being written-off the show and eventually wound up on another Bell family series, The Bold and the Beautiful, as Dollar Bill Spencer.

Now, as part of the Summer Newman (Hunter King) and Sally Spectra (Courtney Hope) feud that is going on from Genoa City to Los Angeles – in a crossover storyline on the CBS sister soaps – Diamont is headed back to his old stomping ground for a visit.

According to Soap Opera Digest, look for Diamont on Y&R the week of February 8th,

Diamont told SOD on his Y&R return, “I had not ever considered that I would be part of a crossover, just because my character was so well-defined at Y&R.”

So have you been enjoying the B&B and Y&R crossover storyline thus far? Do  you think it will be fun to see Don mix it up with some old pals on-screen from Y&R? Comment below.  But first, check out this video released by CBS Daytime of some other crossovers moments over the year between Y&R and B&B.

Vinessa Antoine’s ‘Diggstown’ Acquired by Fox in the U.S.

Great news for fans of former GH star Vinessa Antoine (Ex-Jordan).  The Canadian legal drama, Diggstown, in which she stars has found an American broadcasting home via news today that Fox has acquired the series.

Fox has picked up twelve episodes for seasons one and two of the drama.

In Diggstown, Antoine stars as Marcie Diggs, a star corporate lawyer who reconsiders her priorities and moves to work in a legal-aid office after her beloved aunt takes her own life following the pressures of a malicious prosecution.

 

The series explores issues of social injustice among other topical matters and universal themes. The team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics, and scrappers – messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice. They work directly in the community to find justice for their varied clients. Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.

Deadline broke the news of the acquisition, which will help the network during the Covid-19 pandemic and production shutdowns, to have programming ready to go while other shows continue to get up and running.

No word yet on when Fox might air Diggstown in its primetime line-up.

So, excited to see Vinessa in the legal drama when the show airs on Fox? Comment below.
