Ever wonder how much time and effort is put into piecing together the multitude of sets that comprises the fictional Los Angeles based setting that is CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful?" In a newly released behind the scenes video, fans of the world's most popular daily serial get to see the formation of Forrester Creations and even the Forrester mansion, among several other sets, transition from bare walls to immaculate locales for the bold and beautiful people who roam the halls within the newly christened Bradley P. Bell Stage 31, named after the show's executive producer and head writer, at CBS Television City.
While CBS is currently producing a latenight version of its popular daytime talk show this week, as it waits out the March launch of "The Late Late Show with James Corden," that daytime version of "The Talk" has just surpassed ABC's competiting "The View" in total viewers for the first time ever. During the week of January 5, "The Talk" had a 2% lead on "The View" in total viewers (2.95 million vs. 2.88 million). Meanwhile, both shows tied in both Women 25-54 (1.0 rating) and Women 18-49 (0.7 rating).
CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" will air its 7,000th episode on Friday, January 23, and in honor of the happy occasion, the network announced that the episode will break from tradition and instead feature a retrospective documentary that will highlight some of the show's most iconic moments and a look back at its creation. The episode will also include commentary from the cast, fashion shown throughout its near three decades on air, several unforgettable guest star appearances, original screen test footage and much more.
Actor Dylan Neal (ex-Dylan Shaw, "The Bold and the Beautiful") will star in the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries original movie "Gourmet Detective," based on the series of books by Peter King. Neal, who co-wrote the script along with his wife Becky Southwell, will also serve as an executive producer. The movie is set to premiere sometime this spring and is the first of three planned for the cable network.
The CW announced today during its portion of the Television Critics Association Press Tour in Pasadena that it has given an early renewal to "Arrow," "Jane the Virgin," "Reign," "Supernatural," "The 100," "The Flash," "The Originals" and "The Vampire Diaries," all of which appeared on the network's fall 2014 schedule, for the 2015-2016 television season.
One month after announcing that 93% of its board approved the National Code of Fair Practice for Network Television Broadcasting (Network Television Code), SAG-AFTRA announced today that its members have overwhelmingly ratified the new contract with 96.5% of the members voting in favor.
On Wednesday, January 7, CBS aired the 2015 "People's Choice Awards," which saw The CW's "Jane the Virgin" and "The Flash," along with talent from the network's "The Vampire Diaries," "Supernatural," and "Beauty and the Beast," sweep much of the television categories.
