This is great news…why not get former daytime legends to host this show or someone who is currently on daytime…no Kathy Griffens or those others who were on the red carpet…enough with the trashy tacky tasteless performers who dont know a thing about daytime …I want GLAMOUR! GLAMOUR! GLAMOUR!…lol

Kathy Griffin wasn’t the problem with last year’s show. If anything, she was the only person that held any thread of professionalism together.

Not sure I am going to trust this show until I see it with my own eyes.

Timmm

Kathy Griffins has no day time ties and she is one of the meanest C list celebrities in TV history!

She still seemed out of place…jmo

Leeza Gibbons!

Jeremy, Leeza is a great choice. I watched her on Celebrity Apprentice and she is one of the classiest people I’ve ever seen on TV.

I do not watch Days of Our Lives but God help me I am pulling for Allison Sweeney as Best Actress she has worked her tail off for twent one year’s considered a fat kid for how long! You go Girl take it all!!!!!

Jeremy
Jeremy

@ Timmm – yeah, I watched her too, on CA and yes, that’s what this program needs…. someone with class and a great reputation.
She knows how to command the stage in her own right.

I say Leeza Gibbons alongside with John Tesh. He has a credit or two with Soapdish and Santa Barbara. I think they would be the perfect duo. Or, she could lead, and he could support her. 🙂

Ella

We need to mention Sharon Case is a wonderful actress who for some reason works so hard on Young and the Restless and was not mentioned at this years nomination Emmys for Daytime. We love you Sharon Case! 🙂

Timmm

Amen!

Whether nominated or not, Sharon Case is a winner with her many fans!!!

Sharon Case and Melody Thomas Scott have both done great work over the years they know it and I will continue to say this the emmy is a dust collector. And neither actress lobbies for it darlings it is all politics just like Washinton DC get out there study your craft do your job and screw the rest!

Woohoo! And the program is not relegated to summer anymore. There is hope here, no? After nearly a decade of mess, the Daytime Emmys may finally come back to life like so many citizens of Port Charles!

If you have Cable or Sattelite it’s the former TVGN(TVGUIDE)NETWORK…it’s a basic channel on a lower digital tier…yeah it’s not on the Basic Cable tier for my company..but it’s the channel I go to for DVR of B&B and Y&R…at least it’s not as bad as trying to use a stand alone tv..converter box…and antenna..with one foot out the window…one elbow holding you against a wall..and constant jazz hands holding the antenna while trying to bring up the days episode of The Doctors on RETRO TV…AUUUGHHHH!!!

LeeAnn
LeeAnn

OMG Thank you for the hilarious visual! I love it. LOL I have Directv so I will be looking today. We should have it .The only problem is finding the darn thing. Way too many channels that we don’t watch but can’t get rid of because they “come with your package…sorry” yeah so I get to scroll through numerous unused channels in the vain hope that I’ll find one I want to watch..;)

Timmm

273 on Directv

Its the channel that runs Love Boat reruns every weekend.

yes! Thanks..just found it. So happy!!

LOL LeeAnn and i feel your pain about the myriad of channels that are woefully underused by us the consumers and yet..we are forced to have them..and oh yeah..you’re gonna PAY for ’em too…I gave up on retro tv…the doctors came in..I walked by the antenna and Hope Memorial was long gone to blue screen…I said things I had no idea could come out of my mouth…that should help people Timmm…and then again..one region offers something and yet..another city 5 miles away…SAME COMPANY…doesn’t offer…it’s a hoot!!

LeeAnn
LeeAnn

I too have been shocked at what has come out of my mouth at times of great (tv watching) distress..as well as my poor husband and kids. They sit there, eyes wide, looking at each other as they are all thinking “OMG did mom just say THAT?”…lol

Timmm
Timmm

The kids today dont even screw with cable or satellite. They go with apps and internet content. Its a lot cheaper and some companies offer a internet DVR service so you can tape your shows and watch them whenever like we all have since the advent of the VCR. These cable companies used to have you over a barrel but technology is giving consumers more choices and the freedom to cut the cable if you wish.

We are all so happy to see our soap opera rewards again on Tv ,thank you everyone who worked to make this happen. That is the best news .

It depends where you are in America..

Rebecca1

POP was TVGN…the TV guide network. It’s been rolling out across the board since early 2015 . If you have basic cable it should “pop” up eventually.

Candy

I don’t get POP channel on my cable company, any chance this will be on line to watch again like last year

All cable companies carry this channel…it’s like syfy or tbs

I feel you Candy…like I said above..probably the city right NEXT to you gets that channel but yours doesn’t…it’s weird…it’s just plain dumb…and you can make a stink(albeit) little man big company..and try to get it before the awards..but TRUST…the entire ceremony will show up on-line eventually…and not long after they air..I struggled with retro tv’s signal for the classic Doctors..all unnecessary.. the entirety of the episodes I found on-line already…up to date…

I think the network is a good home for the awards. POP definitely seems to have a love for the soaps with the same day recasts of Y&R and B&B as well as reruns of 90210 and Melrose Place.

I would suggest Nancy Lee Grahn as the Red Carpet host and favorite couples of the past as the presenters (Eugene and Calliope/DOOL; Lance and Lori/Y&R; Cliff and Nina/AMC) to appeal to both current as well as lapsed viewers who might be drawn back to the genre if the producers actually show clips of the nominated performances this year.

Great suggestions, Alan!

Nancy Lee Grahn is terrific, experienced and funny. Everyone loves favorite couples past and present.

Hope someone in charge is listening to you!!

Nancy is too hyper.

Thrilled about this outstanding blah blah blah… If only soap producers would really acknowledge and care for what the audience wants and likes, the soap future wouldn’t be so dire.

I think it’s a good idea.

It would be nice of it was still streamed, too. There are cable systems that don’t carry this network. Cox cable is one of them.

Mr. X
Mr. X

You best check again. I have Cox out here in So. Cal. and they carry POP.

su0000

Different states carry their own lineups..
What one states gets another many not..

I was told that from Comcast, today .. So???

Mr. X
Mr. X

States have no say in a cable company’s channel lineups. I suppose it’s possible Cox doesn’t carry POP in Don’s area of the country.

HELLO? SUSAN LUCCI AS HOST!!!!!

I hope the Daytime Emmy show goes back to the way it was. Show clips of the nominated actors, actresses and shows. Mr. Levitt should watch the Dick Clark Production Daytime Emmys for inspiration.

Okay, we all love soaps, but let’s not forget the other players in daytime television– it is great ALL of them are going to be treated with more respect and given a proper ceremony produced by people who actually think they deserve to be treated with class.
And unless they can get professional interviewers I would skip televising the red carpet. No one, absolutely no one wants to see the fiasco those poor souls were subjected to last year again.

fginaspy

I have downgraded cable services to High Speed internet only. Even when I had Cable the tier I had at some point took TV Guide away. The daytime emmys have always been a poor relation to the primetime emmys and each year I was disappointed in the broadcasts.

I will be rooting for my favorites to win, but I won’t be watching the live broadcast.

Fran
Fran

lets hope they have better host / hosts, last year was a train wreck

Rebecca1

POP was TVGN…TV guide network. It’s been making the change and rolling out to all basic cable since early this year so if u don’t have it yet you probably will.

su0000
su0000

It depends if you cable service carries POP..
there are many different cable providers.
not all cable providers carry POP and some that do carry POP may not carry if in your area..
Comcast carries POP in some areas/states and not in other..and Comcast is just one of the many providers..
Comcast use to carry TVGN in my area but dropped it in 2011 ..

Bringing back glamour??? How about bringing back honesty? That is what fans want. Last year was a joke. People winning that actually had done nothing. Real actors/actresses not even nominated. If it’s anything like last years, you know it wont be watched & then no sponsor’s will want to support it, which means no money going into it-no show.

Rodd

I am so happy that this producer at least “talks the talk”, which I hope will lead to a classy show this year. I would LOVE to see some big name soap stars hosting and presenting and not so many “stars” outside the medium. I don’t need some prime time star without a connection to daytime to draw my attention. I watch for the soap stars. And while I acknowledge that with only four soaps left, it limits the air time in daytime. However, soaps employ three to four times the number of “stars” that a talk or kids show does. That’s my somewhat weak excuse to want my soap stars front and center. The other types of shows deserve their day in the sun, but it’s the soap stars (whether I watch them all or not) that I tune in to see. So, Mr. Levitt, I hope the hosts and presenters are selected from the daytime arena. We’re watching and hoping.

Timmm
Timmm

One step back to being relevant! I would have Michelle Stafford, Regis Philbin, Josh and Steve from Y&R and Lisa C. from GH do the red carpet. For hosting duties I love an early posters idea of Leeza Gibbons as host but also like Julie Chen. I want the show to show lots of clips and PLEASE dont try any comedy or music bits. They always fail!

Susan Nissenbaum
Susan Nissenbaum

As a huge soap fan, I too, do not have the POP channel on Cablevision! Will we be able to see it on line after it airs? Perhaps CBS can run it on late night TV? Please…… Do not disappoint us loyal soap viewers of this wonderful night of awards!

Anna

What if your cable carrier doesn’t carry POP? Any other way to watch?

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Gabi’s Revenge Plot Begins To Unfold; Watch Out Abigail and Stefan!

Evil Gabi is back on Days of our Lives, and that means some great material for Camila Banus (Gabi) to sink her teeth into. After all, who doesn’t love a Gabi scorned?!  This week, viewers already learned that Gabi has already switched the paternity results to make it look as if Stefan (Tyler Christopher) is the father of Abigail’s (Marci Miller) unborn child, when it is really Chad’s (Billy Flynn).  To top it off, she is manipulating and “advising” Gabi on what to do about her paternity secret

On Tuesday’s episode while in the park, Gabi reflects on changing the paternity results and says out loud to herself: “Karma is a bitch. Since you and Stefan ruined my life …” but she stops talking when all of a sudden Stefan appears.  He wants to talk about “Gabi Chic”, and their mutual business interests, but she’s not having it one bit!

She blasts him and his fictitious girlfriend “Gabby” for framing her for murder, and all that has transpired in her life since then including: being beaten up in prison, which has left her unable to have any more children, due to a surgery and an infection she developed while in the slammer for a crime she did not commit.

Gabi says she is not like her ‘Madre.”  She believes in revenge and that people like him deserve to be punished, and that she wants to see him suffer like she has. Stefan is hoping that Gabi will eventually trust him, put the past behind them, and work together.  Stefan exits and once alone, a vengeful Gabi says:  “You and your little whore, Gabby, took something from me that’s precious. Now it’s my turn to take something from you.”

Then to put an exclamation point on her revenge plot, Gabi grins that “all hell will break loose.”

Are you glad to see Gabi back with an edge as she plans to make Abigail and Stefan’s life a living hell? What do you think will be the next move in her master plot? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS Preview – Week of July 16, 2018

This week on Days of our Lives, hell hath no fury like a Gabi (Camila Banus) scorned!  Now out for revenge after receiving devastating news that she can never conceive another child, Gabi has switched the DNA results to make it appear to Abigail (Marci Miller) that Stefan (Tyler Christopher) is the father of her unborn baby.

How far will Gabi continue to sink to carry out this lie and to give payback to Stefan and Abigail as her alter “Gabby” for sending her to prison for a crime she did not commit? Is her former lover, Chad (Billy Flynn) collateral damage in all of this?

Meanwhile, Brady (Eric Martsolf) prepares to say goodbye to his son, Tate after losing custody of his son when the judge rules in Theresa’s (Jen Lilley) favor, but will fate intervene, allowing Brady to keep his son after all?
