Carolyn Hinsey has a new article on the New York Daily News talking about The Bold and the Beautiful's Eric Forrester upcoming hospitalization. Fortunately John McCook has been assured his character Eric will survive his hospital stint though he has been subjected to some Viagra jokes behind the scenes.
Be sure to check it out and while you are at it, take a look at the first sentence and then swap out Eric's name with Victor and The Bold and the Beautiful with The Young and the Restless.
In some respects the two shows are telling the same story with their patriarchal character. Both men just married new, younger women who their children hate. Both men are fighting with their eldest children and both men are going to end up in the hospital. Granted, Eric will end up in a bed while Victor will be sitting beside one.
It should be interesting to see how these two similar storylines play out and where they may diverge.
