Attention fans of CBS Daytime's "The Bold and the Beautiful," "The Young and the Restless," "Let's Make a Deal," "The Talk," and "The Price is Right": If you live in the New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Baltimore, Boston, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Miami, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh or the Sacramento television markets, you currently have no access to CBS programming if you subscribe to Dish Network. You are also missing out on The CW's programming if you live in Atlanta, Detroit, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Sacramento, San Francisco and Seattle. This is the result of a carriage dispute between CBS Corp. -- owner of broadcaster CBS and co-owner of The CW -- and Dish Network that was set to expire on Thursday, December 4. The two sides agreed to extend talks on a new carriage contract beyond the 4:00 PM, PT deadline yesterday. The satellite provider eventually dropped the stations from its programming lineup earlier today when the talks fell through. Also affected by the dispute are three independent stations in Dallas, Los Angeles and New York and two MyNetworkTV affiliates in Boston and Miami.
On the Thursday, December 4 broadcast of Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report," host Stephen Colbert covered the ambassadorship of "The Bold and the Beautiful" producer Colleen Bell, wife of head writer and executive producer, Bradley P. Bell, with a hilarious take on the drama surrounding her confirmation following some lively comments from Senator John McCain, who strongly disagreed with President Obama's choice of Bell for the position. “We’re about to vote on a totally unqualified individual to be ambassador to a nation which is very important to our national security interest. Her qualifications are as a producer of the television soap opera ‘The Bold and The Beautiful,’ contributed 800,000 [dollars] to Obama in the last election and bundled more than $2.1 million for President Obama’s re-election effort,” said McCain on the Senate floor on Tuesday, December 2, just before Bell was confirmed as the U.S. Ambassador to Hungary with a vote of 52-42.

If you find yourself tuning into CBS' "The Young and the Restless" later this month and think you're seeing things when Faith Newman appears on your screen as someone you may have seen not too long ago, don't be too surprised. Actress McKenna Grace is once again stepping into the role of Sharon (Sharon Case) and Nicholas Newman's (Joshua Morrow) little girl following news of current portrayer, Aly Lind, booking a role in a pilot for TNT. Grace actually took over the role of Faith from Lind when she appeared from July 2013 to June 2014, when Lind returned.
On Sunday, November 23, artist Julian St. John, the 24-year-old son of "The Young and the Restless'" Kristoff St. John (Neil Winters) and professional boxer Mia St. John, was found unresponsive in the bathroom of a Long Beach facility. While cause of death has been listed as an apparent suicide, RadarOnline reports that the official cause of death has been delayed pending additional testing and a toxicology report.
