According to a new report from the folks at Soapcentral, we're about to see a new doctor character show up on the "Bold And The Beautiful" scene in late July 2017. He's going to be played by French-American actor Gilles Marini (above). His guest appearance is being described as a very pivotal arc. Also, they say his Summer storylines are supposed be very juicy. Getting back to his character description. They're told that he will be a doctor who has to unexpectedly treat a character in Monaco. He's expected to show up onscreen in two episodes that will start on Friday, July 28th,2017. So, be sure to look out for him on that date. Gilles Marini's acting resume includes roles in HBO's hit drama "Sex and The City" and Lifetime's "Devious Maids," "Brothers and Sisters," "Ugly Betty," "Dirty Sexy Money," "Two Broke Girls," and Switched at Birth. He also competed in seasons 8 and 15 of ABC's hit dancing show, "Dancing With the Stars." He was also previously cast on "The Bold And The Beautiful" as different characters for a couple of one-episode stints in 2005 and 2007. He played an Italian bicycle rider on the now defunct "Passions" soap opera way back in 2006. In addition to the whole treating a patient storyline, they also mentioned that Gilles arc will include some characters traveling to Monte Carlo for the annual Spencer Summit. There's also going to be a swimwear fashion show challenge that's going to pit the Spectra and Forrester fashion houses against each other. So, that certainly sounds like that could give us some pretty intense storylines to look forward to. Unfortunately, they didn't mention which other characters we'll see in Monte Carlo. But hopefully, some more info will pop up before that date. Be sure to follow us for more "Bold And The Beautiful" news coverage on our "Bold And The Beautiful" Facebook page by Clicking Here. »

The “24: Legacy” Season 1 finale stayed even with the previous week’s episode in the Monday overnight ratings, according to Nielsen data.
The Corey Hawkins-led series finished its freshman run with a 0.8 rating in adults 18-49 and 3.3 million viewers. As a whole, the season averaged a 1.4 and 5.1 million viewers, with that average driven up by the fact that the first episode debuted immediately after the Super Bowl on Fox. A new episode of “Apb” (0.6, 2.8 million) followed the season finale of “24: Legacy.”
