    the BB is so impressive these days. While YR cuts back and gets cheaper looking their pretty sister soap gets more lavish and better. BB is the true Bell soap and it shows.

    • Carrie Wendel

      Yeah. I agree. Plus Y&R is too angsty. I wish Michael Muhney and Melissa Claire Egan would go to B&B as Adam and Chelsea.

  • Andrew Hass

    Since B&B just did taping in Abu Dhabi and is currently taping in Monaco i think it makes sense they tape in Paris too while they are over there.Plus i’m wondering since there’s supposed to be a wedding taped on the Monaco location shoot if the happy couple goes to Paris for the honeymoon or something.

    • ROBNYC

      One things for sure, they are paying attention to their international audience. with 35 million viewers worldwide, does CBS get any benefit from that other than prestige?

  • juju

    It is really weird the total difference in money (which can give all these very expensive locations to B&B) between B&B and the other soaps..except maybe Y&R who had also been in location in Paris few years ago..still the difference is quite unbelievable..when you see Days..who looks like an cheap highschool play from middle america..ick..

    • ROBNYC

      I like Days but you are right that it often resembles a high school play, though YR is looking a little cheap too lately. BB as far as I’m concerned is the last show that hasn’t been butchered by a series of bad EP’s, lost ratings and then never recovered. YR is fast approaching that status, Days reminds me of a haggard old Procter and Gamble soap and GH may be showing some sign of new life but I will not get my hopes up.

    • Andrew Hass

      B&B is owned and produced by the Bell family.So they might be happy using their money to help their show.GH is owned and produced by ABC and has a budget to follow.Y&R and DOOL are produced by Sony and they may have budgets too.Now back to B&B location shoots are great but can they back it up with good stories?

      • Jmackie

        I think all the location shoots are great,too, but wouldn’t it be great if the bell family hired mm to play adam on b&b?

        • Andrew Hass

          The character of Adam belongs to Y&R.So if B&B wanted to use the character they would have to get Y&R’s permission and i don’t see that happening.

    • sands of time

      I’m from middle america. I love DAYS. If I wanted to see scenery, I would take more trips and/or watch the travel channel. Personally, I’m outside in the goog, clean, fresh air. I watch DAYS for the characters and stories-stories that matter most.

      B&B needs the scenery because most of it’s actors and storylines are terrible! I laughed when I saw KKL’s emmy nominated performance. The ONLY thing good about it was the scenery.

      DAYS has mind, body and soul. DAYS has heart! B&B is about incest…ICK!!!
