    It was always funny how fans of AMC and OLTL say they boycott ABC over those two soaps cancellation but CBS cancelled these two iconic soaps GL ans ATWTs and no one said they were boycotting that network!!!

      hey Jimh..
      ABC has the best primetime soaps, really great entertainment programing.
      If they want to be kooky and miss out on the awesome series, their loss, and foolish..
      Like g’ma would say;
      ”don’t cut off your nose to spite your face” ….

      Anyways, I have no idea as to who those people are lol, so you enjoy seeing them, once again !

    Ellen Dolan also played the original Maureen on Guiding Light, so she represents both shows!

    Good lineup. Count me in.

    P&G involved. Complicated. Slings thrown at time. Soaps expensive. 2 entities wanted profit not going to happen.

    Miss ATWT so much . . . can’t wait to see them all again. Just wish it wasn’t on the show that replaced them.

    The amount of time spent with the GL and ATWT actors was PATHETIC. Each group must have gotten no more than 5 minutes. Very sad.

    If The Talk wanted to “celebrate” 30 years of CBS being #1 in the ratings, why not devote a whole week (5 episodes) to it, giving each show its own hour??? There primarily were 5 shows in the period (if you exclude “Capitol” which was cancelled in 1987, after the first year of the 30 year run and “Let’s Make a Deal”)…..

    MONDAY — Price is Right, bringing on Bob Barker, Drew Carey and (highly doubtful but I can hope) the “Barker’s Beauties” —- Janice, Holly, etc. (you could have them appear in a segment after Bob since I don’t think the women left the show with a high opinion of him).

    TUESDAY – Y&R, fill it with present cast and bring back some fan favorites (Tricia Cast, Barbara Crampton, Nina Arvesen, J. Eddie Peck, etc.).

    WEDNESDAY – B&B, same thing as Y&R with Susan Flannery, Kimberlin Brown showing up for a segment.

    THURSDAY – ATWT, the ones who appeared and what about the other veterans that no one even had the time to mention on this episode — Don Hastings, Eileen Fulton, Kathryn Hayes, etc.

EastSiders Season 3 Starring Van Hansis and Kit Williamson Kickstarter Campaign Underway!

EastSiders is on its way back for season three, which is great news since the LGBT series starring former As the World Turns star Van Hasis (Ex-Luke) as Thom and creator/writer/producer Kit Williamson as Cal.

Over the last few seasons, the funny, poignant, and extremely well-written series tells the tale of a couple who go through the struggles of their relationship while living in Silver Lake, California.

With many twist and turns and featuring a supporting cast that includes: Constance Wu (Fresh Off the Boat)Brianna Brown (General Hospital, Devious Maids, the upcoming Dynasty), Stephen Guarino (Happy Endings, I’m Dying Up Here), Willam Beli (RuPaul’s Drag Race, Nip/Tuck) Traci Lords (Crybaby, Zach and Miri Make a Porno), Matthew McKelligon (You’re Killing Me), Jonathan Lisecki (Gayby) and John Halbach (Producer, EastSiders), the series third season looks to be one of its most intriguing yet.

This time Thom and Cal (Hansis and Williamson) end up on the great American road trip after moving from L.A. to the Big Apple and then trying to get back home! The journey home to Silver Lake was shot on-location in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Oregon, Nevada and  California over 35 days last fall.

The production has now launched their Kicktstarter campaign to finish up the series and is hoping for some funding for additional shoot days, and post-production costs.
