Plot

The show covered the exciting, eventful lives of the wealthy Capwell family of Santa Barbara, California. Around the Capwells there are several other families, from the rival Lockridge family to the more modest Andrade and Perkins families, whose lives know the same torments. Nickname: Location in Santa Barbara County and the state of California Coordinates: , County Government  - Mayor Marty Blum Area  - City 111. ...


Santa Barbara is notable for having a central plot around which many of the others revolved: the murder of Channing Capwell Junior. This killing takes place five years before the series actually begins, at which point Joe Perkins, jailed for the murder, is paroled and returns to Santa Barbara determined to prove his innocence. Over the course of the soap, almost every major character would be accused of the murder of Channing Capwell Jr or find their life involved in it one way or the other: from his illegitimate son to his mysterious, presumed dead, mother and his homosexual relationship. Since its coinage, the word homosexuality has acquired multiple meanings. ...


The series began on an uneven foot, but creators and executive producers Jerome Dobson and Bridget Dobson proceeded to kill off most of the show's actors via natural disaster and a serial killer storyline. When a major earthquake hit Santa Barbara, core character Danny Andrade slept through the entire thing. Minx Lockridge (Dame Judith Anderson) was unfazed, saying that the 1984 Santa Barbara earthquake was nothing like 1925. She was later locked into an empty sarcophagus. Luckily, her grandchildren were around to let her out and she escaped with merely a bruised ego.

The show was famous for its comedic style and offbeat writing. For example, in July 14, 1986's episode, former nun Mary Duvall McCormack (played by Harley Jane Kozak) was killed by having a giant neon letter "C" (for "Capwell" atop the Capwell Hotel) land on her while she was standing on the hotel roof (this was later referenced in in the American Dad! episode "Homeland Insecurity"), and despite an irate letter-writing campaign by the show's fans (and an offer from the soap to come back), Kozak was reported as saying that she had "no desire to return to SB", or in fact any other daytime soap. is the 195th day of the year (196th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

But in 1988 the Dobsons were locked out of NBC studios after repeated attempts to fire the headwriter. They sued, and were eventually allowed to return to the program, but the magic was gone. Ratings never recovered, even as the show won 3 Daytime Emmys in a row for Best Daytime Drama. The first of those wins involved a mini-melodrama of its own as the extremely controversial Jill Farren Phelps (who had replaced Mary-Ellis Bunim as executive producer) shared the stage with Bridget Dobson. Bridget Dobson raced onstage and captured the trophy a few seconds before Phelps could reach the podium.

Under Phelps' tenure most of the show revolved around Cruz and Eden. One controversial storyline involved Eden being brutally raped, and later discovering that her assailer was her gynecologist Zack Kelton (Leigh J. McCloskey), who had examined her after her rape. McCloskey himself stated that he was uncomfortable with the storyline, as he felt that women had enough concerns about visiting gynecologists. After Zack's death, McCloskey returned as a new character, cold DA Ethan Asher. Actor Leigh McCloskey Leigh J. McCloskey (b. ...


Phelps left the series in the early 1990s shortly after being demoted and replaced by John Conboy as executive producer. Finally Paul Rauch became the last executive producer (ironically all three would later be producers on longrunning daytime series Guiding Light). Many important actors had left the series for one reason or another (Robin Wright, Lane Davies, Marcy Walker, Justin Deas). Popular actress Louise Sorel (Augusta) was fired because she did not want to have a romance with Dash (Timothy Gibbs), the man who had raped Augusta's sister Julia. Eden, Cruz, and most of the Lockridges had been written out while new characters played by stars from other shows such as Kim Zimmer, Jack Wagner and Sydney Penny took up most of the airtime. Ratings continued to collapse as more and more affiliates cancelled the program. The final episode aired in January 1993. In the finale, Sophia (Judith McConnell) and CC Capwell (then Jed Allan) moved towards a reconciliation, Kelly (Eileen Davidson, the 4th actress to play the role of Kelly) found love with Connor McCabe (Charles Grant), and at Warren and BJ's wedding, unbalanced Andie Klein (Krista Tesreau) aimed a gun at the crowd. The final shot consisted of executive producer Paul Rauch standing in front of the camera, smashing a cigar under his shoe, and walking away. Some soap critics, such as Michael Logan, were deeply angered by what they saw as the crassness of the final shot. John Conboy is an American soap opera producer. ...

Ratings history

Although Santa Barbara enjoyed considerable worldwide popularity, it never achieved the same heights in the United States. In its debut (1984–1985) season it finished in 11th place and 3.4, and edged up to 10th and 4.2 the next year. By 1987–1988 however it was beginning to generate respectable numbers: it was still in 10th place but achieved a 4.9 rating, the highest in the history of the show. (Incidentially, 1987–1988 also proved to be the best ratings performance for NBC's daytime soap lineup in the 1980s, which had been in ratings trouble since the late 1970s). Unfortunately, this growth in popularity was not sustained although Santa Barbara remained above Loving until it was cancelled. The U.S. soap opera Loving aired on ABC from June 27, 1983 to November 10, 1995 for 3,169 episodes. ...


In the early 1990s, some NBC affiliates tried airing Santa Barbara late morning timeslots. NBC's flagship station WNBC in New York moved the show from 3pm to Noon where it aired in its remaining years on the air. NBC replaced Santa Barbara with games show Scrabble and Scattergories before eventually adding a new soap, Sunset Beach, to its daytime lineup. Scrabble was an American television game show that was based on the Scrabble board game. ... Scattergories, the popular party game became an ill-fated, short-lived game show on NBC Daytime hosted by Dick Clark. ... Sunset Beach was an American soap opera that aired on NBC from January 6, 1997 to December 31, 1999. ...


Shortly before the program was cancelled by NBC, New World Television (the distributor) tried to shop the show to other broadcast and cable networks but they failed to find a network that would air it.
