TVGN (TV Guide Network) has acquired the exclusive encore cable rights to the CBS soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful, which will begin airing Monday, December 2 at 6:30PM/EST.
Weekday encore airings of B&B, the world’s most watched daytime drama, will air before same-day episodes of sister soap, The Young and the Restless. The five most recent episodes of B&B will air back-to-back Sundays from 11:00AM/ET —1:30PM/ET beginning December 8. TVGN acquired rights to Y&R earlier this year.
“The Bold and the Beautiful has been one of the most popular daytime dramas on television for more than two decades and now, for the first time ever, the series will be making its cable TV debut, giving loyal viewers more opportunities to catch-up on their favorite show,” said Brad Schwartz, President, Entertainment and Media, TVGN. “The Young and the Restless has made TVGN one of the top female networks in the country, weekdays at 7pm. It only made sense to give B&B fans what they’ve been demanding from us.”
“I am looking forward to a successful partnership with TVGN,” said Bradley Bell, Executive Producer and Head Writer of The Bold and the Beautiful. “Our fans have asked us for an opportunity to watch a second run. I’m delighted that we will now be able to fulfill that desire with such an esteemed cable network.”
