The honors keep coming for The Bold and the Beautiful. Now in its 24th year, the Emmy-winning CBS soap has earned the distinction of being named the most popular daytime soap by a world-famous book of records.

Another soap opera has made the pages of a world-renowned records book. Guinness World Records has named The Bold and the Beautiful the "Most Popular Daytime TV Soap - Current." A Guinness World Records Adjudicator presented B&B's head writer/executive producer, Bradley P. Bell, and the show's cast with the certification of this coveted distinction on Stage 31 of CBS Television City, where the series has taped since its inception in March 1987.

How popular is The Bold and the Beautiful? The show can be viewed in more than 110 countries. In 66 of those countries where there are systems to measure the number of people watching a particular program, B&B garners an audience of more than 24 million viewers.

The Bold and the Beautiful has also won four consecutive Golden Nymph trophies from the Monte Carlo TV Festival's TV Audience Award, an award that is given to the most-watched television programs in the world. B&B has been nominated for the award again this year.

The latest honors are just some in a long line of recent praise for The Bold and the Beautiful. Last year, the CBS soap was named Outstanding Drama Series at the Daytime Emmys. This year the show has earned eleven Emmy nominations -- the most it has ever received in a single year -- including another nomination as Outstanding Drama Series.

Two other soaps have made Guinness' list: Guiding Light is listed as the longest-running scripted program in television history, and actress Helen Wagner is mentioned for her work as Nancy Hughes on As the World Turns. Hughes, who recently passed away, is listed as the actress who has played a role on television for the longest time.
