  1. If you go by the "unofficial" numbers posted by Toups for the week of Dec 30, you're right; if you don't count the classic episode on Dec 30, Y&R averaged 5,090,000 viewers for the week of Dec 26-30, which is more than the 4.98 million viewers that Y&R averaged (per the press release) for the week ending Jan 6. But if CBS goes by the numbers published by Nielsen, which showed a lower average for Y&R for the W/E Dec 30, then 4.98 is a high point.
  2. Does it happen often that you counted a never-before-seen flashback where the flashback was the only appearance of the character? I'm trying to remember a time when a character in flashback didn't appear in the actual episode as well.
  3. For the two episodes she has listed, the credited scriptwriters are Michele Val Jean (April 25) and Jack Smith (May 6). Very odd....
  4. I seem to remember these characters being on for just this story (and then never turning up again. I remembered James Michael Gregary as Dr. Fontana because he played Clint Radison on Y&R in 1989-90 (and later reprised that role 20 years later). He was one of the many actors over the years who appeared on both Bell soaps in different roles.
  5. B&B: Shelley Curtis first listed as director on April 13. (although her name was misspelled as Shelly)
  6. In the International Credits, anyway - but in the CBS credits, he was listed. Strange... And even stranger, he was back in both credits today. Maybe we should call Mr. Pinciotti the Incredible Vanishing Writer!
  7. Someone on twitter should ask what his title is. For now I guess I'll just list him as Associate Writer. I don't know if anyone ever asked on Twitter, but IMDB has him listed as Associate Head Writer starting with the Feb 1 episode. They also have him listed with the middle initial for almost all his writing credits on the show except for Episode 7000 (which wasn't scripted) and three others.
  8. Thank you! haha yeah it's weird he's credited differently. Just add the V! LOL The middle initial has been there since he was first credited as a writer in the CBS on air credits in December. I don't recall if it was there for the handful of shows he was credited for as a script writer in 2014-2015. The reason why he added it now as a writer is probably as mysterious as the reason why it took almost two months for him to credited everywhere.
  9. Someone on twitter should ask what his title is. For now I guess I'll just list him as Associate Writer. He was just credited on this one episode so far... Weird! But he is in the US credits for more than a month? He's been in the US credits every day, starting Dec 14.
  10. John Smith? Has he not been gone since Y&R since 2006 in the 'Great Purge of Latham'? Correct. Jack Smith has been a script writer at B&B for the last few years
  11. B&B: Mark V Pinciotti first listed as writer in all credits on Feb 1
  12. In the 2015 thread, I had mentioned that the CBS on air credits for B&B showed Mark Pinciotti listed as a writer every day since late December. The CBS.Com/International credits still don't list him. Last week, Heather Tom tweeted a picture of the script for the next episode she's directing (tape date, Feb 3, Air Date March 14). It lists Bell, Minnis, Pinciotti and Patrick Mulcahey as writers. So I guess Mark is part of the writing staff now if his name is listed on the script. I wonder when it will show in the CBS.Com/International credits?
  13. Maybe that's why Casey Kasprzyk was promoted from producer to supervising producer in 2014? It seemed odd that B&B, which originally had only one supervising producer until Ed Scott came on board, suddenly went to three in 2014. If Rhonda let Brad know her intentions back then, promoting Casey could have been a succession plan. In a recent interview with Brad Bell at the end of 2015, Michael Fairman asked Brad to tell him about the B&B Production team. http://michaelfairmansoaps.com/the-bold-and-the-beautiful/the-brad-bell-interview-the-bold-and-the-beautiful-soapmaker-of-the-year-2015/2015/12/29/
  14. B&B has always kept their sets stored away well, in case they have to be reused. They have a few that stay up all the time - the Forrester mansion and the FC executive floor used to be kept "up" all the time back in the day, although I'm not sure if that's true today when the mansion is seen less frequently. The others come and go as needed for the story, although they try to use a specific set for multiple episodes these days to keep from having to break down and put up sets too often. I guess they could have just kept the Cafe Russe set "in the box" and just not used it anymore, so it was kind of nice that they actually worked its exit into the story.
  15. Insomnia was also a hangout for the younger set for a while, when Macy and Grant bought the place, late 1997-early 1998. Katie worked there as a waitress, and Amber, Rick and CJ used to hang out there around the time Jacob Young first came on as Rick. That set came and went over the years until it became Dayzee's, although who knows how often we'll see it now that Kristolyn Lloyd is only recurring and is headed east for work. They also had a country western bar in late 1996-early 1997, the Canyon Country Club, but that disappeared after it served its purpose in the Taylor/Ridge/Brooke/Grant quadrangle.
  16. Yes, it happened, although it was actually March 25-26 in 2010 when Cafe Russe made its exit. Ridge and Brooke had dinner with Taylor and Whip at Cafe Russe as it prepared to close down. Taylor and Whip left and went back to Whip's place, where Whip proposed, and Taylor, claiming she was finally over Ridge, accepted. (Of course, we saw a year later how untrue that was during the Berry incident). Meanwhile, Ridge and Brooke stayed behind and closed down the place. I guess the Cafe Russe set was just too elaborate to break out for infrequent use under B&B's two episode/day taping schedules, with them trying to use the same sets back to back days to save money.
