Seems to me that she's busy promoting B&B rather than Y&R when she should be promoting both equally.

I am always leery when they say you will have your mouth drop open and say I can't believe they did that.

Most times you can figure out what they are doing a mile down the road, not impressed.

Its because B&B viewers are pissed about:
  • Jackie Woods (Steffy) left the show
  • Hunter Tylo (Taylor) left the show
  • Not so good actress Kim Matula (Hope) is taking up all the air time
  • Brooke sleeping with yet another family member's spouse
  • Kathy Kelly Lang taking most of the air time as well.
  • Wishy Washy Liam is still on the show.
  • the elimination of the Foresters.
  • etc.
I could go on, but I am getting very upset just typing.
So I think they are promoting B&B because the show is in chaos and not worthy of anyone's time.

Except BB is experiencing a ratings boom like no other in years.

IMO, McDaniel does a decent job at trying to save the soaps on CBS.

Hope keeps getting a new love interest along with Rick, while Thomas is still alone.
Changing the terms of a trust.
Steffy losing her baby for no reason.
Eric still sucking up to Brooke
Brooke destroying families while suffering no consequences for her actions.
Bill being a bully yet they treat him like a victim in the midst of Katie wrath.

And that is something I can't explain
The other soaps have more appealing storylines, real villains, more characters. They are not perfect but they are so much better
B&B was great until 2005, that there are been some good things but for the most part it's has been a boring mess
I know I'm in minority (rating are up from more than a year) and I must be an aline because right now there is nothing interesting in the show

The most horrifying option here is if she actually thinks that Y&R doesn't *need* the promotion because it's doing so good. Um, no it's not. It's a horrible travesty and a shadow of the show formerly known as Y&R.

As for B&B, I don't really watch it, but a lot of people have panned it better in the recent weeks so I will respect that. I did watch the Katie/Brooke/Bill scenes because of the incomparable Ms. Heather Tom, and to see the exit scenes of Ms. Hunter Tylo. And those scenes were great. But the minute they did not have Katie slap Brooke, but had Brooke slap Katie was the end of a line for me once again. The way this show insists on catering to a certain miss Katherine Kelly Lang is appalling, and will prove to be detrimental to the show in the long run. However, as I said earlier, I know a lot of people think B&B is very good right now, so that is fine. And it is certainly miles away from Y&R. That show is in the bottom of the barrel.

I'm one of those that had stopped watching Bold and tuned back in recently once 'Days' got boring for me. I'm loving the Batie vs Brill story and I'm glad that Liam is finally getting a taste of his own medicine with Wyatt being a force. Thrilled for their ratings and personally hope that Hunter Tylo never comes back. I really liked Taylor in the 1990s not as much as I have always loved Brooke but I enjoy the writing of their rivalry. Once Taylor came back in 2005 I was over the character and the person playing her. Ultimately I feel McDaniel is doing a good job given that ultimately I think Bold and Y&R will be the last soaps standing.
