The Bold and the Beautiful

Thursday, November 6, 2014 4:47 PM EDT
In the midst of “The Bold and the Beautiful” gearing up for an exciting storyline in Amsterdam, which will begin airing Friday, November 7, the show’s stars Scott Clifton (Liam), Kim Matula (Hope), Ashleigh Brewer (Ivy) and Darin Brooks (Wyatt) dropped by CBS’ “The Talk” to discuss the twists and turns ahead. But don’t fret if you missed the actors’ appearance yesterday: A clip of their visit to the popular talk show has just been released!
Shortly after Kim Matula shocked the soap world with the news that she has chosen not to renew her contract as “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Hope Logan and that she has already taped her final scenes, her longtime co-star Scott Clifton (Liam Spencer) took to social media and publicly declared his thoughts on the turn of events.
As previously reported, actress Kim Matula has opted to exit CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" after portraying the contract role of Hope Logan on the daytime drama series for the last five years. In a posting on her Instagram page, Matula confirms her exit and shares what led to her decision to leave the world's most watched soap!

In one of the rarest of circumstances, CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" announced on Twitter earlier this evening that actress Kim Matula (Hope Logan) will soon be departing the daytime drama series, just hours after Matula appeared live alongside co-stars Scott Clifton (Liam Spencer), Darin Brooks (Wyatt Fuller) and Ashleigh Brewer (Ivy Forrester) on the network's daytime talk show, "The Talk." Under normal circumstances the talent, or their representatives, would reveal departure news to the press or social media before the show was able to confirm casting updates.
As the saying goes, "Remember, remember! The fifth of November," in reference to the fifth day of the month of November, which got a modern boost in understanding via the Natalie Portman vehicle "V for Vendetta," some CBS Daytime soap fans will remember the day for a presidential press conference that resulted in their favorite soaps being interrupted in several markets, including the second largest market - Los Angeles! As a result, those impacted markets will offer makegoods, which finds stations re-running a program that may have been interrupted in any significant way in its corrected form at a later time. "The Bold and the Beautiful" did not air in nearly 11% of the country, while "The Young and the Restless" did not air in nearly 7% of the country.
As the polls close in some states, and prepare to close in others, it might come as a surprise to learn which of your favorite television shows may appeal more to those who share a different political viewpoint from that of your own. In the weeks leading up to the mid-term elections taking place today, Bloomberg did a study that followed political ad spending on various forms of programming aired throughout the year leading up to election night. In it, Bloomberg noted that "General Hospital," "The Bold and the Beautiful," "The Talk," "The Steve Harvey Show" and even "Judge Judy," among others, aired more Democratic political ads while news oriented programming such as "CBS Sunday Morning," "NBC Nightly News," "Nightline," the Sunday editions of both "Good Morning America" and "The Today Show," and even game show "The Price is Right," aired more Republican ads.

This month on CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" fans will get to see the beautiful city of Amsterdam when Hope (Kim Matula), Liam (Scott Clifton), Wyatt (Darin Brooks) and Ivy (Ashleigh Brewer) travel abroad to mix business with pleasure, but an on location shoot isn't the only thing to look forward to on the daytime drama series.
On Wednesday, November 5, "The Bold and the Beautiful" stars Darin Brooks (Wyatt), Ashleigh Brewer (Ivy), Scott Clifton (Liam) and Kim Matula (Hope) will be appearing on CBS' "The Talk" to discuss their recent Amsterdam location shoot and the "B&B" episodes that begin airing on Friday, November 7.
