  1. So it looks like CBS Seattle aired Search for Tomorrow. I wonder if CBS Seattle aired Capitol or if their noon news became one hour after CBS ended Search for Tomorrow. I know B&B didn't air in Seattle until 1994 so it's possible their CBS station had a 1 hour noon news from 1982-1994. Interesting that your Western Washington listings also included nearby Canadian cities and their network affiliates. No Y&R on the Vancouver stations back then. I know Another World was huge in Canada for a long time (the cancellation was even covered on CTV's national news) but I'm guessing Y&R overtook it in popularity sometime in the 1990s. I'm curious to know if viewers in Buffalo/Niagara Falls could pick up Global Toronto and watch the day-ahead Y&R.
  2. OMG I just realized that 1990 was 30 years ago! Where has the time gone :lol:

      @I Am A Swede Yes, it is.

       

      @dragonflies I think a lot of us are in denial :lol:

       

      @YRfan23 Don't be scared. 30 is the new 20 😁 

  3. I've gotten through all of 1993 and I'm planning to watch 1994 until Nancy Curlee leaves the writing team. I know Alan returned in summer 1994, and Annie Dutton arrived in fall/winter 1994, but are any of the post-Curlee 1994 storylines worth watching?
  4. B&B in the Northwest states is interesting. As far as Washington goes, Spokane and Yakima aired it from day 1 it seems (there was a 1990 episode posted in the B&B old articles thread that was recorded from the CBS station in Yakima) but Seattle didn't air B&B until 1994. I think Portland was another city that didn't air B&B until the mid-1990s, but I'm not sure about the rest of Oregon or even Idaho.
  5. Y&R gave MTS and PB special episodes for their 40th and 30th anniversaries this year, so they should also give EB a special episode for his 40th anniversary. So you won't be watching on Monday February 10?
  6. Y&R had two big losses this decade with the passings of Kristoff St. John and Jeanne Cooper. Both of their tribute episodes were done well.
  7. You're welcome @Franko . I'm sure you can unearth some more info. Seeing the schedules of different cities we get ideas as to which network is strongest in each market. It's been posted here over the years that CBS is strong in the Midwest and South and ABC is strong in the Northeast and West Coast. Not sure where NBC fits in regionally. I've always found it interesting that Y&R's number one CBS station was not one of the flagships (WCBS New York, KCBS Los Angeles), or even WBBM Chicago, considering Y&R films in Los Angeles at CBS Television City and the Bells were based in Chicago for years. I read once that on an international level Y&R's number one station is Global Toronto.
  8. The real Brooke Hogan was born in Tampa Bay on May 5, 1988. So her parents didn't get her name from B&B and thus had no idea how their daughter's name would end up being used by soap fan sites/message boards.

  10. More garbage time, yuck. There better be something amazing on Monday February 10 for Eric Braeden's 40th anniversary. Since his actual anniversary February 8 is a Saturday, I figure the Monday episode will be Eric's anniversary episode.
  11. Happy holidays everyone. Stay safe 🤗

  12. The Spellings: Aaron and his spawn Tori and Randy Susan Lucci/Liza Huber
  13. I've often wondered if Bill Bell's original intention in 1990 was to pair Brooke with Eric (elements of the Jill/Phillip/Katherine and Jill/Stuart/Liz storylines from Y&R) or if he changed the storyline because KKL became pregnant in real life.
  14. This must have been Nancy Curlee's last major storyline https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j1SsQHgcz2s
  15. Now we're at the end of the 1980s and getting to Y&R remaining at #1 until today. It's amazing that Y&R was in so much flux during the 1980s (1 hour expansion, time slot changes, 3 EPs, big cast changes) yet managed to survive and thrive.
