Can Don Diamont Make The Bold and the Beautiful Watchable Again?

Publish date:


I don't know many soap critics who watch all eight soaps who wouldn't agree that CBS's one-time guilty pleasure passion pit, The Bold and the Beautiful, is currently the worst soap opera on television. In today's edition of The Nelson Ratings, TV Guide Canada's Nelson Brancowonders if the addition of Young and Restless alum Don Diamont to the cast will help get the show back on track. I'm not holding my breath.

Fellow Y&R vet Eileen Davidson's B&B storyline was asinine and contrived—though it was Shakespearean compared to the slop on our screens now—Heather Tom (ex-Victoria, Y&R)is struggling to bring believability and depth to Katie's storyline, meanwhile her signature role is being water-logged on Y&R. Ashley Jones (ex-Megan, Y&R) is running around in white powder, wearing silly wigs as B&B's Bridget. Do we really expect any better for Diamont?
