5 Reasons Why ‘Bold and The Beautiful’ Needs A Teen Scene
The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers reveal that as hot and steamy and riveting as this CBS sudser is, there’s always room for improvement! Which is why, after careful consideration, we have a surefire suggestion for sizzling up this daytime drama.
How about introducing a teen scene? Where are all the younger peeps on B&B? Here are five great reasons why B&B would benefit from introducing an exciting new group of teen characters.
#1 B&B needs a teen scene to bump them up in the ratings
B&B holds a great distinction among the four remaining American soaps as the sister soap to the number one rated daytime drama, The Young and the Restless. B&B is often second-best in the rating race, but who wants to be a bridesmaid when they can be the bride? Bringing on a teen scene might be the very thing that the show needs to finally knock Y&R off its rating perch.
#2 B&B needs to get with the times
Summer is traditionally the time when soaps focus on the teen scene—how can B&B do this with nary an adolescent insight?
#3 B&B is almost a multilayered canvas agewise
The daytime drama deserves kudos for featuring strong characters in many age groups. Eric Forrester (John McCook) is a grand patriarch and there are plenty of middle-aged stars such as Bridge. There are also plenty of young adults like Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) and Sally Spectra (Courtney Hope). Having a strong core of teens would perfectly round out the troops.
#4 The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers – B&B could address teen issues
Every show does the occasional PSA storyline and right now is the perfect time to feature a teen issues-oriented story. Oh wait—they have to have a bunch of teens first!

#5 B&B could pull in a new generation of viewers
Let’s face it, soaps could use an injection of new blood when it comes to the fanbase. There’s nothing wrong with the current audience, but we could always use more eyeballs. Renewals of daytime dramas depends on viewership and every year it seems that the pool of viewers drops off a little. Bringing in a teen scene might entice a whole new generation of fans, who are teens themselves, to become hooked on the genre and thus sustain it in the future.
