Ratings, Rants and Raves: GH Spikes Before Christmas; DAYS Ties Dangerous Lows Among W18-49
The Bold and the Beautiful was down 54,000 total viewers over the previous week. Across the major demos, the 30-minute series held steady.
Katie (Heather Tom) confronted Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) about smooching Bill (Don Diamont) at Big Bear. Meanwhile, Taylor's (Hunter Tylo) nosy behind was all up in Bill's Kool-Aid. Hope (Kimberly Matula) learned that Rick (Jacob Young) had Hamlet lie about Liam (Scott Clifton) and Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) going to second base the night before Hope and Liam's wedding. Caroline (Linsey Godfrey) continued to crinkle her nose and baby talk.
In 2013, I am going to need for Brad Bell to tap back into his inner perve. Two people making out—whether it happened or not—is not a significant enough plot device to split a couple up, unless the show is iCarly. Bill Spencer Sr. used the knowledge that Ridge was sleeping with (You know, like actually penetrating?) other women to bust up Ridge and Caroline the First. Now makeout sessions are relationship game changers? This show has become so vanilla.
