Anna Nicole Biopic Starring Bold and Beautiful Alum Proves Ratings Hit


Anna Nicole drew a crowd once again, this time for Lifetime. The TV-movie, starring The Bold and the Beautiful alum Agnes Bruckner (ex-Bridget Forrester), scored 3.3 million viewers, according to the Nielsens.

Anna Nicole Smith proves again to be larger than life. Saturday’s world premiere of the Lifetime Original Movie Anna Nicole (#AnnaNicole), telling the rags-to-riches story of the iconic supermodel who captured the world’s attention with her beauty and unconventional lifestyle, averaged 3.3 million Total Viewers, a 57% jump vs. the network’s 2013 year-to-date original movie average and its most watched original movie since November.  The film also performed well across all key demographics, becoming this year’s number one original cable movie premiere among Adults 25-54 (1.6 million), Adults 18-49 (1.4 million), Women 25-54 (1.2 million) and Women 18-49 (1.1 million) – representing a Lifetime best in the four demos since Steel Magnolias last October.  Anna Nicole secured a 2.6 Household rating, according to Nielsen Research.

The Bold and the Beautiful Serves Up One Helluva a Birthday Surprise



Heather Tom may as well get her Daytime Emmy gear ready for next year’s ceremony, as she definitely served up her reel in Monday's episode. Taylor (Hunter Tylo) would not let Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) get away with her tryst with Bill (Don Diamont) — damn the psychiatrist's career, Katie’s heart or her relationship with Eric (John McCook) for that matter. 

Taylor’s persistence opposite Katie’s insistence in believing she was lying, provided fantastic drama for this 30-minute soap opera,  especially when Brooke couldn't deny a damn thing. How heartbreaking was it to watch Katie beg the older sister, who meant the world to her, to tell her it was all a lie?

SPOILERS: Sabrina Has a Proposal for Patrick on General Hospital



The Sonny Sandwich: With the obvious triangle heating up, will this help usher Connie out of Port Chuck?  Sonny gains a houseguest when Olivia comes to stay with him. Connie isn't convinced  her cousin isn’t into her ex-fiancé.  Could Connie’s hard fought for mental stability be in jeopardy due to jealousy?

Burn, Baby Burn: Who would want to burn a child’s baby doll?  When Emma’s doll goes up in flames, the easy assumption is that Britt did it, but did she?  Emma is not a happy, soon-to-be big sister. When Britt replaces the charred toy; will Emma let the Britch back on her good side? Doubt it. That kid is the ultimate judge of character.
 

Brooke Needs to Butt Out on The Bold and the Beautiful



How Hope (Kim Matula) continues to live in her land of delusion - Logan Land as I like to call it - astounds me.  It’s no wonder she had trouble figuring out how to stay married to Liam (Scott Clifton) in the first place.  Everything she wills to happen should simply do so, because she’s Hope.  How do you see how broken Liam is over Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) leaving, and still be so sure the only thing keeping them together was the baby? 

Of course, it took Hope all of two seconds to head over to Liam’s and make herself available.  Does anyone else feel like she gives women a bad name?  Also, why does Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) insist on continuing to meddle?  Has Steffy even been in Paris for 24 hours?  She’s already sending them away together.  Can somebody let this man make a decision on his own?
