Why do they continue to roll out all these new, uninspired TV shows when the reality of the matter is that we will all be reading about their cancellations one year from now.

I haven’t watched the Bachelor since the 3rd season. It’s ridiculous. It’s sad that these reality shows garner as much attention as they do. A bunch of non-talent people selling themselves for their 15 minutes of fame. I have watched Grey’s Anatomy since the 2nd season. Won’t be the same without Sandra Oh. I absolutely love Scandal! I watch Revenge and Nashville, too.

I did watch the bachelorette once but only because the son of one of my former high school teachers appeared on it…tv was so much better in the 60s and 70s…most of these reality shows are partly scripted…no way real!!!

I do think it’s interesting that Marvel’s Agents Of Shield was moved an hour later and will no longer be competing directly against NCIS and now it’ll be between 2 new shows.

They cancelled Suburgatory? Damn, I loved that show. And Super Fun Night? ABC, you stink!

Amazing how very fine film actors are now surfacing on TV series. Juliette Lewis is a brilliant actress….and Ryan Phillippe is also incredible. The premise sounds interesting…

I love Barry Sloane and am unhappy that he’s gone from REVENGE. Not sure if his new series will fly; hope so. Would hate to think he got tossed from a successful show where he had a sizable presence if his new one’s a flop.

All in all good lineup!

Please move General Hospital back to 1pm. Best sitcoms, the Goldbergs and Trophy Wives. Don’t think Blackish is going to hit the right notes. ABC used to own Sunday nights but now I’m all CBS on Sunday night. ABC rules Thursday nights. Thanks

49th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards: General Hospital, B&B’s John McCook and Y&R’s Mishael Morgan Take Top Honors

Friday night, the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences’ (NATAS) 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were handed out in 15 categories on a live telecast on CBS and streaming on Paramount+.  When the dust settled, it was ABC’s General Hospital who took the night’s top prize for Outstanding Daytime Drama Series.

This marks GH’s continued record-breaking number of wins in this category and brings it up to 15 victories for the iconic show, which is currently in its 59th year on the air.  GH’s executive producer, Frank Valentini accepted the award on behalf of everyone connected with the show, when Drew Barrymore presented the final award of the night.

The night also brought with it the historic win of The Young and the Restless’ Mishael Morgan (Amanda Sinclair). The actress became the first black actress in Daytime Emmy history to ever take home the Lead Actress Daytime Emmy.  In the emotional highpoint of the evening, in terms of acceptance speeches and significance, Morgan spoke to the current generation breaking glass ceilings.

Morgan expressed: “We are breaking glass ceilings left right and center and I am so honored to be a vessel and to experience this moment. Everybody out there today, we can do this thing called equality and unity together.”  In her speech, Mishael shared: “I was born on a tiny island in the Caribbean, and I’m now standing on an international stage and I am being honored regardless of the color of my skin, regardless of my passport, for being the best at what I do, Now there are little girls around the world and no matter what the industry, the vocation they can strive to be the best.”

Veteran actor, John McCook who has played Eric Forrrester on The Bold and the Beautiful for over 35 years, finally won his first ever Emmy after four previous nominations in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series.

The Supporting Actor and Actress in a Drama Series trophies went to two standouts from General Hospital, Kelly Thiebaud (Britt) and Jeff Kober (Cyrus), while Nicholas Alexander Chavez (Spencer), added another mantle to the GH trophy case with his first win for Outstanding Younger Performer.

Days of our Lives writing team led by Ron Carlivati took home the gold for Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series, while GH won for Direction.

The biggest winner in terms of total gold belonged to The Kelly Clarkson Show. When all was said and done, between the Creative Arts ceremonies held last weekend, and last night, the talk show took home 7 awards including: Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show and Talk Show Host. General Hospital followed with five total wins for Daytime Emmys 2022.

The ceremonies featured DAYS Suzanne Rogers (Maggie) anchoring the Lifetime Achievement Award presentation to her longtime co-star John Aniston (Victor), who was not present, with the help of John’s daughter, Jennifer Aniston, who was seen on tape.

Susan Lucci (Ex-Erica, All My Children) made her first public appearance since the passing of her beloved husband, Helmut Huber and introduced the In Memoriam segment.  Grammy-winner Michael Bolton performed his classic tune “How Am I Supposed to Live Without You” during the tribute.

Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier and Nischelle Turner were the hosts for the telecast, and with the overturning of the Supreme Court Roe vs. Wade decision on everyone’s mind last night, Turner gave a nod to how she and so many others felt, when Frazier told her how nice she looked in her dress. Nishcelle commented, “I chose this dress. It was my choice.”  That moment received huge applause from the audience in attendance.
