The Bold and the Beautiful

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.

Whatever Forrester Creations business Brooke Logan had to handle in Europe, which was the reason cited for her departure from the Los Angeles based company many months ago, seems to have finally been settled as portrayer Katherine Kelly Lang returned to the set of CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" earlier this month to once again film scenes, which begins airing in late January 2015.
To kick off 2015 in style, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries will air all-day marathons of several programs during the month of January including "Hart to Hart," "Diagnosis Murder" and "Murder, She Wrote." The network will also air marathons of its popular original mystery movies, including Kellie Martin's "Mystery Woman" series.
