This week, 'RTSB' was #2 in the SONBC ratings, with a 1.9 rating & 669 views!!! Though the ratings point went down, the viewership was almost exactly the same as last week!! Thanks so much everyone who is sticking with it & I hope you continue to do so- I don't plan on stopping anytime soon, I hope the readers don't either!
As far as the coming week is concerned, there will be 5 episodes posted. I'm hoping to follow this approximate schedule:
MONDAY- Episode 14 between 2-3 PM
It's been an exhausting couple of days folks- I'm butt tired right now. I actually really like how the Thursday episode closed out the week so I'm going to leave this week at that. There will be a new episode posted Monday and next week will DEFINITELY be a five episode week, without a doubt. The pre-emptions of last week have screwed up the pacing of some of my storylines so I'm re-tooling things a bit to fit into the proper time frame.
In the meantime, I've seen some other blog write
Sorry I've been away gang- something I ate yesterday left me violently sick for the past two days. As a result, no episode was posted yesterday and today's still hasn't gone up. Not to worry though. To make up for our unscheduled pre-emption, Thursday's episode will instead be posted tonight, at the originally scheduled time for Friday and Friday's episode will be posted tomorrow evening. This will be the first time I've posted an episode on Saturday, but I'd planned this week as a 5
Is coming- working on it as we speak. Hopefully, it should be up before 9PM. Also, be on the lookout for tomorrow's news item. There's a very special 'RTSB' episode coming up in which I'll need viewer input. I think you all are gonna love it!!!! Again, don't miss episode 39, to be posted shortly!
I've found the perfect theme song for 'RTSB'. http://santabarbara-online.com/GeneriqueDebutUS.rm
The song debuted in Episode 16. I think everyone will surely like it! Be sure & listen to our theme song before reading each episode, if only to set the mood.
Today's episode will air sometime later tonight, to give viewers time to catch up on yesterday's double header. Hopefully, it will be up no later than 11 PM, however, I'll be shooting for earlier.
Edit: I will be ed

When SONBC's Return to Santa Barbara killed off it's central hero, Cruz Castillo, we smelled a rat. After all, RTSB had already fooled us once with Sophia- were they going to play that game again, just a few weeks after her death? Fast Forward to April- Months have gone by and we have yet to see Cruz or his portrayer since the fateful day that boat exploded. Is this for real? Or just another clever trick? We sat
Is she Loretta? Is she Sophia? Just what is going on with RTSB's matriarch, Sophia Capwell, and will she ever return home to her loved ones? We sat down with Judith McConnell and got into all of this, including her SONBC Award pre-nom. SONBC: Welcome Judith. It's such an honor to get to meet you like this. Judith: Thank you very much. What a nice thing to say? SONBC: You've been a very busy lady over on RTSB since its inception. Judith: I sure have and I couldn't be more pleased b

Tuc Watkins as Keith Timmins
Outstanding Leading Male Character
Jed Allan as CC Capwell
Outstanding Leading Female Character
As all of you know, SON had yet another outage yesterday, causing RTSB to be pre-empted. I had lots I was building to this week which is why I kept re-scheduling to make it a 5 episode week. Unfortunately, now, that won't be happening. With the way I have everything paced (and you all know I'm a stickler for pacing), everything works out better if I do 3 episodes this week instead of 4. So I'm keeping Friday as an 'off' day for 'RTSB' and will post this week's final episode tomorrow, as
In a move sure to shock some 'RTSB' viewers, executive producer & creator juniorz has fired Christine Tudor Newman and replaced her with Deborah Adair as Elizabeth Wayne. Adair takes over the part beginning today. Why the sudden change?
"We wanted someone who people might be a bit more familiar with than Christine. While I love and admire her work and thought she was brilliant in the part so far, I had to take a step back from my own thoughts and think about how ot
This schedule is subject to change, of course. But here is the tentative schedule for 'RTSB' this week.
(All times are Eastern U.S. time zone)
MONDAY- between 10-11 PM
TUESDAY- between 7-8 PM
THURSDAY- between 1-3 PM
FRIDAY- between 10-11 PM
This will be another 4 episode week, as I have lots to juggle, especially with the holidays coming up.
Angel makes progress in the investigation!
Mason figures things out & confronts Julia!
RTSB SUMMER PREVIEW
Hey everyone! I know I've been behind in posting episodes, but I will be rolling them out again this week, starting with Episode 101! In any event, I wanted to take this time to give out a preview of what to expect this coming summer. I'm really excited about everything I have coming, as I have much of it planned out in my head. So here goes:
This storyline is the one I'm most excited about right now, as many of m
I have decided that it would be fitting to bring back "RTSB" on the 20th anniversary of the show's final episode. The day before, I will repeat and do an updated version of my original "Dream" episode that undoes ALL of Pam Long's writing from 92-93 and makes fun of it.
There will be brand new, bonus scenes added to that episode and the next day, "RTSB" will RETURN!!!!!!
Can someone please post the exact date in 1993 that SB aired for the las
Through the past week, fans of the SONBC drama "Return to Santa Barbara" have been left hanging. Is Cruz really dead? Will Mason & Mary find their child? Will anyone ever find out the truth about Sophia? Or is it Edmund & "Soretta" forever? All these questions hung in the minds of RTSB fans, but there was one that particularly stood out- "Will we ever find out?" We tracked down RTSB exec producer and headwriter juniorz, who's been a bit of a recluse of late, and got the ans
For those of you who missed it the first time around, I'm repeating our very first 'RTSB' Christmas episode, written in 2006. Though it aired 6 years ago, this is the Christmas that will be played as if it had transpired 6 or so months before. When we pick up 'RTSB,' it will be in May of the same season we were in, so there is no loss in story nor timeline, and of course, there will be NO FLASH FORWARD!. That is the laziest gimmick I've ever seen writers use in order to push their stories to
UPDATE: Haha, so I worked 16 hours Saturday (meeting at 8, shift started at 10:45 AM, ended 12 AM). Then, I woke up Sunday for another shift, got home early (3 PM) and slept from then until 2 AM! U wanna talk about beat...... In any event, 'RTSB' will return tomorrow (Monday) with no loss in story!
SONBC's Return to Santa Barbara will be back this week with 6 Brand New Episodes, the first of which to be posted late tonight or Monday morning. Lots is happening this coming week, including part 2 of the family dinner in the next installment. Here's a preview of what's in store for the week:
Edmund continues to lavish Sophia with extravagance!
Edmund & Sophia play a game of cat and mouse with Augusta!
Santana leaves her patient for the memorial service!
Cruz's memorial service ta
RTSB returns with 5 brand new episodes this week, beginning TONIGHT!!!!! Lots is going to be happening this week- by week's end, expect to have seen most of the cast appear!!!! Here's some previews of what I have in store for RTSB this week!
----Two unexpected pairs make love!

----Maureen has some SHOCKING information for Mary that will directly effect Mason
----CC & Ashton have a revealing c
I'm thrilled to announce that "Return to Santa Barbara" is back- OFFICIALLY! And no, it's not going to be another tease like last summer and fall- this is the real deal! I'm so sorry that it's taken me 4 years to go back to writing, but I just couldn't get back into the RTSB frame of mind. That, my fans and friends, is no longer a problem. I diligently re-read the ENTIRE blog this weekend and all of the storylines and characters are once again fresh in my mind. I know EXACTLY what I want to
RTSB ADDS TWO HUNKS, LOSES 1
It's OFFICIAL! The roles of Brandon Capwell and Chip Castillo have been cast! This week, RTSB welcomes Justin Hartley (ex-Fox, PSNS) as Brandon and Jay Hernandez (Six Degrees/ Crazy/Beautiful) as Chip Castillo. Though both are returning to town for Cruz's funeral, there's a bit of mystery surrounding each character.............like where the hell have they been?
"Chip has been taking care of his mother, Victoria Lane, who has been recovering from a terribl
