The Bold And The Beautiful Notches Some Big Viewership Wins

Thanks, in part, to the writers, "The Bold and the Beautiful" has certainly been leaving a lot of viewers on the edge of their seats and there's a good reason for it. Ever since Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown) came back onto the scene, she's been leaving nothing but a trail of dust and drama. On New Year's Eve, she swapped Brooke Logan's (Katherine Kelly Lang) nonalcoholic champagne for the real one, which led Brooke to kiss another man that wasn't her husband that night. Not only that, but Sheila also got into a heated argument with Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) in an alleyway behind Il Giordino and accidentally shot her son John 'Finn' Finnegan (Tanner Novlan), per If that weren't enough, Sheila's also gotten her claws out for Li (Naomi Matsuda). In an interview with Soap Hub, actor Kimberlin Brown said that if there's anything that fans should have known about Sheila by now, it's that you don't cross any kind of line with her. Speaking about Sheila's fight with Li, Brown explained, "One problem Sheila had with Li is that she betrayed her. Li chose to betray her. You don't do that."

And because Sheila has become the villain du jour in this fictional town of Los Angeles that the Forrester, Spencer, and Logan families reside in, it might also be the reason why "The Bold and the Beautiful" has managed to climb in the ratings battle with some big viewership wins.
