The Bold and the Beautiful

Each week Soap Opera Network publishes ratings reports that break down the highs and lows of the four remaining daytime soap operas - "The Bold and the Beautiful," "Days of our Lives," "General Hospital" and "The Young and the Restless" - in total viewers and the all important key women sales demos (Women 18-34, Women 18-49 and Women 25-54). Today, with both ABC and CBS noting the success of "GH" and "Y&R," respectively, TheWrap has published a piece entitled, "If Soaps Are ‘Dead,’ Why Are Their Audiences Growing?" In its report, the publication notes that each of the soaps are up season-to-date in all key ratings categories. Meanwhile, some of the replacements for the canceled ABC versions of "All My Children" and "One Life to Live," specifically talk shows, have all "come and gone like, um, sands through the hourglass."
Like "As The World Turns," "Days of our Lives," "General Hospital" and "Guiding Light" before it, producers of CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" have announced a new partnership with Pan Macmillan and its digital-first imprint, Momentum, in which the publishing company will release a series of novellas surrounding several characters from "B&B."
In an newly released interview with Soap Opera Digest columnist and Tainted Dreams blogger, Carolyn Hinsey, "The Bold and the Beautiful's" Thorsten Kaye opens up about his role as Ridge Forrester on the CBS Daytime soap, but it's his comments on Prospect Parks' version of "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" that has all eyes open.
On Friday, December 13, Ridge Forrester returns to CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" as played by daytime soap veteran, Thorsten Kaye. The actor takes over the role from Ronn Moss, who departed the series in 2012. In a promo released by the network, Ridge drives up the Forrester driveway and gets ready to embark on a new journey, but where does he fit in? You'll just have to tune in to find out!
With its combination of soaps, game shows and a talk show, the CBS Daytime lineup consisting of "The Young and the Restless," "The Bold and the Beautiful," "Let's Make a Deal," "The Price is Right" and "The Talk" posted growth during the November 2013 sweeps period, according to Nielsen Live Plus Sam Day ratings data.
