Get ready to see some serious drama from “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Ashley Jones (ex-Bridget Forrester; ex-Megan Dennison, “The Young and the Restless”), who’ll be appearing in an upcoming episode of “Criminal Minds” that sounds like it might give her soap gigs a run for their money!
Titled “Gabby,” the Wednesday, February 26 episode of the CBS drama has Jones starring as Kate Hoffer, the mother of a 4-year-old girl who goes missing while visiting a relative in Mississippi. The BAU uncovers some startling truths in their search for the child — but will suspicions about Kate be part of those revelations?
Tune into CBS to catch the episode at a special time — 10PM ET/PT on Wednesday, February 26 — to find out!
When thinking of daytime dramas like “The Bold and the Beautiful” and “The Young and the Restless,” extreme drama, intrigue, love and romance probably come to mind. But how about comedy? Is laughter an important component within daytime dramas?
“Criminal Minds” star Joe Mantegna certainly thinks so. “When I was doing mostly theater, I watched a lot of daytime, because theater actors are like athletes: They sleep late, because they work nights, so they watch daytime television. And actually, I used to find a lot of humor in them,” he tells Soap Opera Network. “I like… when soap operas have characters who bring a lot of comedy to the show. Some of them are very, very good.”
But do the stars of CBS’ sudsers agree? We asked several if comedic scenes have a place within their intense dramas, and if so, how important is it to infuse comedy into the emotional roller coasters. Funny enough (no pun intended), they were all too happy to share that when it comes to comedy, there is no joking around!
CBS has released a breakdown of how its top shows left off with their season finales in May and what viewers can expect when their new seasons premiere in the fall. “It may only be July, but it’s never too early to get caught up on where CBS series left off last May.
