ABC even cancels nighttime soap drama, "Brothers & Sisters"!

Looks like the continuing soapish drama and saga of the Walker Family. ABC’s Brothers & Sisters starring Sally Field and a stellar cast just got the boot from the alphabet network too! So is this another casualty in the network’s decision to move away from scripted soap style drama programming? Maybe, maybe not. However, budgets and the bottom line look to be the culprit.

According to Deadline.com, “Barring any last-minute miracle, it looks like this is the end of the road for ABC’s veteran family drama Brothers and Sisters. There had been a serious effort by ABC and producing studio ABC Studios to find a price point at which they could bring the show back for an abbreviated sixth and final season. There have been talks with star Calista Flockhart to return for six episodes next season. Last May, Brothers and Sisters clinched a last-minute 18-episode order that was subsequently expanded to 22 episodes. But the indications are, with so many drama pilots scoring high in testings and screenings this year, ABC is ready to say good-bye to the Walker clan.”

Another great show on ABC bites the dust!

As much as I loved Brothers & Sisters when it came on…I watched diligently for the first 3 years – but it has lost it’s appeal for me.
And I’m with Rob on this one -more upset about OLTL.

What is ABC doing? One Life to Live, All My Children and now Brothers and Sisters. For those who have taken the time to watch Brothers and Sisters it is a genius show. It makes you laugh out loud, laugh and learn a few life lessons along the way. It emphasizes family in both the conventional and unconvetional families exsist all around us. I will miss this show.

I am sad it’s going off, although like Rob said, “more upset about OLTL.” At least with Brothers & Sisters, i was more warned. I loved the show but it had a nice ending. Lets hope the soaps don’t have cliff hanger endings. In a way it’s a good thing because it’s just another thing i won’t be watching on ABC. I will be dancing in the streets when i find out that Brian Frons is kicked to the curb! Can’t happen too soon for me!

I am also upset to see Brothers and Sisters to be dump buy ABC. What is wrong with ABC? People want scipted drama’s not reality tv. I thought maybe they would start listening after they canceled our beloved soaps. Im wrong. The only good thing about this is Im having less reason to tune into ABC. Now the only other shows I watch is Grey’s, and Private Practice. When AMC and OLTL are gone I guess Im going to have to make a choice and its looking like no more ABC programing.

I can’t believe this network cancelled another great night time drama show. TV viewing has become so lousy, I don’t even know why I watch it anymore. First the daytime soaps and now night time soaps as well. I am not interested in reality shows. They are too stupid and dump. To expose so many not so smart people on national television is absolutely ridiculous!!! I watch drama tv to take myself out of the real world and its problems. I am not an internet junkie and to be forced to be on my computer so much to watch tv… Read more »

Daytime Emmy Award winner and a nominee again this year for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Daytime Drama Series, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester) chatted with Home & Family.

During her segment, Jacqui discussed becoming a mom again for the second time and welcoming her new son, Lenix, and balancing raising two boys with playing the day to day perils of Steffy Forrester.

As soap fans know, last year’s storyline where Steffy became addicted to painkillers provided her with meaty material which landed her as one of the frontrunners for next week’s 48th annual Daytime Emmy Awards to air on Friday night, June 25th on CBS.

MacInnes Wood became emotional when telling how Steffy’s addiction intervention helped others, relating: “I was flooded with all of these messages, and this one woman reached out to me and she said her son… it still gets me emotional … but her son was addicted and that intervention was the same thing with her family, and it touched me in such a way and she said luckily that he is sober now.”

Jacqui also talked about Steffy’s on-screen love life …. and her real-life love and husband, Elan Ruspoli.

You can watch the full interview segment here.

B&B’s Don Diamont Granted Restraining Order Against Alleged Stalker

The Bold and the Beautiful’s Don Diamont (Bill Spencer) was granted a temporary restraining order in L.A. County Superior Court against 37-year-old Quincy Adams; who Diamont says has been harassing him and his family since back in January.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Diamont alleges that Adams took to YouTube saying Don was a Satanist and responsible for COVID, 9/11, and the Iraq war.  In addition, Adams claimed to be connected to him some way from birth.

It was then that Don grew increasingly concerned when the man shared online that he knew where Diamont and his family lived.

Then came June 2nd, when Adams showed up at their front gate and Don received a call from his wife, Cindy.  The police handled Adams from there, but Don was very worried that Adams might harm him, or his family, so he was granted the temporary restraining order against him.

We wish Don and his family nothing but safety in the days ahead.

So what do you think about the claims and actions of Adams on Diamont? Comment below.
