The Bold and the Beautiful
On Thursday, September 25, Soap Opera Network reported that CBS completed its 28th year as the most watched network in daytime with its highly ranked lineup consisting of soap operas "The Young and the Restless" and "The Bold and the Beautiful," game shows "The Price is Right" and "Let's Make a Deal," and growing talker "The Talk." In honor of their continued success the network has bestowed upon the cast and crews of each program a plaque that highlights key reasons everyone watches CBS Daytime.
With soap stars Eileen Davidson (Ashley Abbott, "The Young and the Restless"; Kristen DiMera, "Days of our Lives") and Lisa Rinna (ex-Billie Reed, "DAYS"; ex-Taylor McBride, "Melrose Place") currently filming the fifth season of Bravo's "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," it was only a matter of time before a network greenlit a new reality series/docu-series comprised solely of the divas of daytime and primetime soap operas.
Hot on the heels of the news that Hallmark’s “Signed, Sealed and Delivered” will be moving to the network’s Movies and Mysteries channel comes word that former “The Bold and the Beautiful” actor Brandon Beemer (ex-Owen Knight; ex-Shawn Brady, “Days of our Lives”) will be appearing in a Hallmark Movies and Mysteries film!
As Soap Opera Network gets ready to celebrate its 13th anniversary on Wednesday, October 8, we are proud to announce that we will begin providing our readers with weekly ratings reports for not just the daytime soaps, but also talk shows "The Chew," "The Talk," "The View," "The Today Show 2" and "The Today Show 3," as well as game shows "Let's Make a Deal" and "The Price is Right," along with the previously reported ratings for "The Young and the Restless," "Days of our Lives," "General Hospital" and "The Bold and the Beautiful." The charts, which will vary week to week, does not take away from the weekly daytime drama rankings we will continue posting each week, but instead represents what daytime programming as a whole looks like when compared with one another and not based solely on genre.
With game shows "Let's Make a Deal" and "The Price is Right," "The Talk" and daytime drama "The Bold and the Beautiful," CBS Daytime continues to grow its audience year-over-year after just one week into the new television season (week of September 22-26) based on Nielsen Media Research live plus same day ratings data.
As previously reported, CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" is currently on location filming scenes in Amsterdam for upcoming episodes of the daytime drama series. In a soap opera twist, cast members from the soap met up with the stars of Bravo's "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," which reportedly now includes former "B&B" actress Eileen Davidson (Ashley Abbott, "The Young and the Restless"; Kristen DiMera, "Days of our Lives") and Lisa Rinna (ex-Billie Reed). Incidentally, because Bravo has yet to confirm either actresses participation in the series, it looks like the meeting of the former soapers (along with "Housewife" Lisa Vanderpump) and the cast of "B&B" has resulted in the "secret" being revealed!
