While other soap operas are being canceled,1 The Bold and the Beautiful has been flourishing. It was recently named the Most Popular Daytime Soap by the Guinness Book of World Records,2 and, on Sunday night, the show won the Daytime Emmy for Best Drama Series for the second year in a row. Yay for The Bold and the Beautiful!
Now I can sit back and enjoy the thoroughly ridiculous case of mistaken identity between Brooke and Oliver, knowing that it is some of the best stuff out there!
1 As the World Turns was canceled after fifty-three years on television! Fifty-three! That’s such a long time.
2 According to Soap Opera Digest, this was because it can be seen in more than 110 countries. In those countries which have mechanisms for counting viewership, it had 24.5 million viewers in 2008.
