  1. I had no idea Brad Bell had so much money. To pay actors, actresses and and entire company of production, hair, makeup, etc....for them not to air in the United States but just keep the ship going to air overseas. I didn't know they had that much money. Interesting. When CBS is done with this show, the show will be done.
  2. To some of you - B&B and Santa Barbara and the situation is really similar in my opinion. Santa Barbara was always very popular overseas, compared to their ratings in the U.S. B&B has done well here, but the popularity here is going down the tubes, but it's still doing well overseas. No one here though is going to continue to produce this show if the ratings in the U.S. go down the tubes. We're not going to produce this show for airing overseas just because it's doing well elsewhere. Santa Barbara - and I never watched it, but here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santa_Barbara_(TV_series Of the soaps that aired here in the U.S. at the time, it was the "flashy" one. B&B counts and depends on being flashy. You might want to see what Santa Barbara did overseas and it still bit it. I do have beef with B&B to be honest - because Capitol was always sandwiched between ATWT and Guiding Light. B&B has always followed either Y&R or Local News in some markets. B&B has been given awesome fabulous Lead-In ratings since their beginning...and they lost lead-in ratings unlike any show ever. If it had been a Primetime show - it would have been cancelled or moved to another timeslot given what lead-in they have ALWAYS lost. B&B has been EXTREMELY fortunate over the years, given their older skewing Demos from the beginning. So I guess good for them. But it's comin' to roost now.
  3. Santa Barbara was "known" to have a HYOOOOGE international audience as well.
  4. Yes, a soap writer...most of them don't do anything else or have little success elsewhere.
  5. B&B I'm kind of surprised because the general reaction on here at least was that most liked the Spectra fashion show. Yet as the week built to the show, Thursday and Friday are the lowest for the week. To me it's too bad because I think Sally is a good actress but unfortunately this won't bode well for any Spectras because it's not showing in the ratings. At least they were something new - I was back to catching 5 to 10 minutes here and there. Overall - scary how B&B has a million more viewers than GH but practically the same Women Demos. Y&R 2 million more viewers but only 100,000 more Women 18-49. B&B always skewed way older but not this bad - Y&R not so much. The only people watching are older than 50? DAYS is lucky they were already renewed - this has to be it for them. Unless NBC is just too lazy to try and air something/anything that would do at least the same for far less money. GH can't feel that safe either given that ABC has had some success in the past 20 years in adding other daytime talk shows - something will work for less money and the same results. If I'm a writer I don't think it's in my interest to strike this time. The days of management caring are thin and there won't be a job to return to because at least 2 of these shows are in high likelihood cancelled...
  6. I was going to say it the other day but resisted...so thanks for this! hahahaha. I actually have enjoyed some of it the past couple of days....nosy Katie works for me. Finally if they make Quinn have some comeuppance after all the ridiculous things she's pulled...and even if not...if someone else finally tortures the living 8888 out of her it's due time.
  7. Sorry but Jesus. A WGA strike could actually SAVE soaps. For some shows when it happened in the 80's it turned out decently for them. Right now, what else would these writers WRITE for? I'm all for Unions and fighting for your rights but right now...they won't work again anyway. So why would they strike? If they strike - I actually wish there was no Ficore or whatever it's called...maybe then we'd get some new blood up in here. I'm not going to overestimate any of you but I bet most of you could do better than we're seeing. So bring on a STRIKE.
  8. I like Ravi - and normally (we all have preferences and I don't have a "type" really), but I typically don't find Indian men attractive...but I'd love it if he jumped my bones.
  9. I've mentioned it before but it's also so weird how over the years his accent has gotten heavier and heavier. From that clip they showed - from the early 80's, he had an accent but it's nothing like it is now. I thought he was doing it as part of the character, but his accent during the interview was far heavier - so it's it's not part of the character....it's just gotten much heavier over the years.
  10. When Newman Tower was the Inferno and Victor has a Helipad...but no Helicopter. He's got a private Jet but no Helicopter. There was only ONE Helicopter from the GCPD....and it kept making its "Last Trip" before the building might collapse. But Victor/Newman didn't have a Helicopter yet has a Helipad, skyscraper, and we know a private jet and his own private airport...but no Helicopter. Makes total sense.
  11. Although Faith has kind of taken up the missing hole...at least we don't have Summer uttering every other scene "why is everyone being so MEAN to GRAND-PAHHHHHH?" "Why aren't we SUPPORTING - GRAND-PAHHHHHH?!!" Wonder where she's been (Y&R - please don't make me sorry that I asked).
  12. It's become a snooze fest - I have it on in the background and was reading comments above....I agree. Nikki for the millionth time is 'done' with Victor. Yawn. I see Hillary pulls another *itchy stunt - yawnnn. Stale, done to death. Once again I see we have to keep Victor's secret or everyone 'goes down'. I missed Chole's actual escape - did she take the kid with her? Is the actress really leaving or is she just on vacay for awhile? This return was so miserable. And I know to watch a soap you have to suspend disbelief...or belief whichever. But the whole thing with Victor not knowing where his own plane is GOING? LOLLL. The pilot has to file a flight plan no matter what....private jet or not. Then he couldn't get in touch with the pilot??? It's sooooo bad. Like he's just going to fly somewhere, drop her off and then leave again with no flight plan and no contact with the ground tower when he lands???? So stupid...I can't believe this is Y&R.
  13. This show won't recover at this point...I'm pretty sure of it. I saw pieces of today and just nothing made sense. Sympathetic Victor acting like he's sad that he lost a son - who he conspired against. Victor will never be redeemed to me, but people have selective memories. He was never truly the good guy or partially likeable. He was never any Roger/Guiding Light which is what they tried desperately to make him. And the show is a maze of a mess. You don't love any character on this show. When that happens, it's the nail in the coffin for a show - as plotty as shows want to be, DAYS, GH, and other shows have proven what happens when you go after plot only. And on this show, they tried to plot, but the characters have fallen apart and the repair would take way too long now. Given that the head writer can't do either. I'm not even sure they have the acting company to pull anything off now, to sell bad writing or to sell the fact nothing is happening. It's just not good right now. It will be the last one standing, but I give Soap Opera about 3 to 4 years tops now. People laughed at World Turns, Another World, Guiding Light, All My Children, One Life to Live - when they were cancelled. None were as bad as what I see right now. It's showing.
  14. I missed most of last week and tuned in today...I'm totally lost. Why would Nick care about a brother he always hated for the most part? He's all caught up in figuring out whether Chloe flew off without being arrested...whether Adam was murdered...and Victor is there I guess helping Chloe? I honestly don't even remember why Victor and Chloe conspired to take care of Adam/kidnap/kill - his own son. Diary pages from Sage...missing or there, discovered, then not. I have no idea. This show has been a meandering mess for so long I just can't even figure it out now. The production looks great, but there is no way to weave the bad writing and storylines together that have been the past 1.5 years. I feel badly for Sussman/Alden, but honestly - I don't even know that I would have even tried to address any of that mess...I may have just trashed it and moved on somehow. And does anyone even care that Sully/Christian is like....NO ONE'S baby? LOL. That will be the weak weak angle they throw to Victor/Eric Braeden. I can hear it now. "I did ALLLLL OF THEEEEES FOR YOUUUUUUUUU! DO YOUUUUU NOT SEEEEE???" And he'll use both of their hate for Adam to save his own skin. "MY BOOYYYYYYYY? THAT BOY WAS NOT YAWWWWWS! IT WAS NOT SHARRRRONNNNNS! LOOK AT WHAT SHARRONNNN DID TO YOUUUUUU! SHE LIED TO YOU AND CALLED HIM SULLLLLLY! I HAVE TO PROTECT MAH FAMILEHHHHHH! I did THEES to PROTECT YOUUUUUU!" (Direct Eric to bellow as usual). They'll throw in some more dialogue about "IT WAS THE DOM PARAGONNNN VIRUS!!!!" Eh, awful.
