I stand with you, Brian, but I do not think we will receive what we want.

I am glad REVENGE is moving to Sundays. With HOUSEWIVES and CSI: MIAMI gone, and perhaps THE GOOD FIE off to a new night, Sunday is competitive. REVENGE is my choice.

So sad to hear this! Sunday night is where tv shows go to die! I can appreciate that ABC wants to build an audience for Nashville by putting after Modern Family and its family of hit sitcoms, BUT not at the expense of Revenge, please!! Revenge is not a show that should be shown in the still pseudo-family friendly hour of 9PM. I fear the network may push creator / head writer Kelly to mellow out the show to match the new day and time and that will seriously jeopardize the show’s integrity and will drive away its loyal audience.… Read more »

No Sunday is not where tv shows go to die, it is the Friday night slots and Saturday (when a lot of people are out and not sitting home watching tv) …Sunday is a very big TV night. Shows have stayed on that night for years and receive big audiences.

I too wait to hear One Life to Live is coming back. I think Revenge will do just fine on Sunday Night at 9pm, it already has a fan base so there should be no ratings dip.

I can’t wait to see Jonathan Jackson in his new sexy role with the added bonus of hearing him sing. I’ve always thought for a long time that he is just one of those elite actors that deserves more than acting in a soap, that his special talent was being lost on most of the night time viewers and boy oh boy are they in for a treat something us GH fans have been blessed to witness. Good luck JJ I’ll be watching.

I think this is a stupid move. ABC had a strong line-up with The Middle, Suburgatory, Modern Family, Don’t Trust The B in Apt. 23 and then the incredibly good Revenge…..I absolutely hate it, when networks take a hit show and start moving it around to another night. What in the Hell is wrong with ABC?! Do they want their shows to fail? Now instead of beating all the competition on Wednesday night, they will move to Sunday where there are tons of great programs on other networks that they will have to compete with. Here are the names of… Read more »

Revenge has many followers and is strong enough to stand against any show.
What ABC needs to do is give GH a great lead-in.
Lead-ins are very important and GH has the failed Revolution for its’ lead-in, terrible.

No doubt. GH would raise its’ numbers with a good lead-in..

My point exactly…..why mess with success? I know it has a strong following…..I’m one of those people that loves this show, but I find when networks start moving shows around, they risk the chance of losing viewership, because the show is now in a different swimming pool, swimming with other sharks. I just don’t think it’s a chance worth taking.

How about OLTL for a lead-in for GH? How about giving FV/RC two hours for combining OLTL and GH? How about ABC going back in time and fixing the stupidest mistake every made in daytime when it canceled OLTL?

Breaking News

Ex-Nashville and GL’s Hayden Panettiere’s Boyfriend Arrested After Allegedly Punching Her

More upsetting news involving former ABC and CMT’s Nashville star (Ex-Juliette Barnes), Hayden Panettiere.  According to various reports, the actress was punched by her boyfriend Brian Hickerson with a closed fist in an incident that occurred in Wyoming, over the Valentine’s Day weekend.  He was arrested around 2:30am on February 14th.

According to TMZ: the police report said that Hayden revealed that she and Brian were in their bedroom when he started throwing her around and punched her.  The Teton County Sheriff’s Office was notified of a disturbance at a private residence. That caller said an intoxicated male was locked out of the home because he punched his girlfriend in the face.

Pantierre’s face was red and swollen, and she also had a scrape and swelling on her left hand; which she believed came from Hickerson’s watch during the altercation.  Deputies then decided to book Hickerson for domestic battery. He was also hit with a second charge of interfering with a police officer for allegedly refusing to identify himself.

Things looked like they had taken a turn for the better before the incident, noting that the couple moved past another altercation previously from 2019.  That case was dismissed, although he has left red marks on Pantierre’s body, because they could not find a “material witness”.

Hayden and Brian have been dating since 2018.  Daytime fans remember first seeing Hayden as a young Lizzie Spaulding on Guiding Light.  She played Juliette on Nashville from 2012-2018.

So what do you think about the latest incident involving Hayden? Comment below.

WATCH: Jonathan Jackson + Enation’s New Music Video “The Days Are Evil”

Five-time Daytime Emmy winner from General Hospital, and former Nashville star, Jonathan Jackson (Ex-Lucky, Ex-Avery) has released a new music video for the new single “The Days Are Evil” along with his band Enation.

The music video features shots of Jackson in a very dark incarnation, and the track will also appear on Jackson + Enation’s upcoming album due out later this fall, Ultraviolet Empire.

Jonathan says of the new album: “Our new album, Ultraviolet Empire, is a throwback record. It’s a record we played together live in the studio. Most of the songs are one take -just letting the band play.  It was amazing playing with our co-producer Colin Linden and capturing something so raw and visceral.”

This will be the band’s follow-up to their 2017 album  Anthems for the Apocalypse and their successful 2018 tour in Europe opening for Echo & The Bunnymen,

Check out the music video featuring Jonathan released this week below.

Then, let us know, should Lucky return to Port Charles for the Nurses’ Ball with his band and play a tune off the new album next spring? Will Jonathan come home to GH for a guest appearance? Will you be checking out the new music from him in the coming months? Comment below.

Upon learning of the cancellation, King took to her Instagram and shared: “Thank you for bringing me into the Life In Pieces family and for making it such a fun four years. I have so much love and respect for everyone who was involved in this show. Thank you to the amazing cast and crew, and thank you to our amazing leaders Justin Adler, @kaplanaaron , and Jeff Morton . I am forever grateful.”

Finally, Lee Daniels series on Fox, Star, which has been a companion to his hit sudsy Empire, was also canceled after its 3rd season.  Star followed three talented singers – running from their pasts and desperate for a new start – with ambitions of stardom, as they navigate the cutthroat music business.  It has been reported by various outlets that the showrunners will be looking for another home for the series to try to continue it on.
