Due to the Thanksgiving Holiday, ratings for the week of November 12-16, 2012 will be delayed. Check back on Monday, November 26 to see how your favorite shows fared.
For those of you wondering or secretly hoping that Ronn Moss would be back on CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" as Ridge Forrester just before Susan Flannery airs for the final time on the Monday, November 26 episode as Stephanie Forrester, you're going to have to settle with the fact that it's not happening.
While millions of fans may love the tantalizing tales of the Forrester's and the Logan's on CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful," many of them may not think twice about what it takes to make the world's most watched daytime soap opera come alive each and every weekday. In a new book released earlier this month by Sourcebooks, entitled "Becoming Bold & Beautiful: 25 Years of Making the World's Most Popular Daytime Soap Opera" with foreword by the soaps "core four" Susan Flannery, John McCook, Ronn Moss and Katherine Kelly Lang, the hardcover release provides detailed insight from the 1987 debut year of the soap to present day. Included throughout are over 200 photographs featuring cast and crew members on Stage 31 of CBS Television City in Los Angeles, and on location in Malibu, Cabo San Lucas, and Aspen.
For more than 10 years fans of daytime soap operas have been coming to Soap Opera Network to find out how their favorite soap was faring in the weekly ratings report. From time to time we would also provide analysis of how they stacked up when compared to their broadcast counterparts in the talk show and game show genres, but we've never looked at how the broadcast soaps (and to a lesser extent the broadcast talk and game shows) compared to syndicated television. Not that it wasn't easy to provide a comparison, it was just never something we found necessary. In recent months, with the introduction of several syndicated talk shows including "Katie" and "The Steve Harvey Show," which together took over the 3:00 PM slot from "General Hospital" in much of the country this past September after "GH" moved to 2:00 PM, and the second season without "The Oprah Winfrey Show," things have changed. Recently, Broadcasting & Cable came out with a report that showed how syndicated programs might be a solid alternative to our soaps in the key demographics when it comes to Madison Avenue buying advertising time. While we wouldn't want advertisers to give up on our favorite shows, B&C does provide a solid rationalization and even highlights the value of soap operas when it comes to the all important key women demos (Women 18-49, Women 25-54, etc).
