At first glance I thought it was a younger picture of Lisa Bonet.

Emma,Xander and now Zoe? I am all for a fresh face or 2 but slow down B&B! And contract? Lets not dump our vets! The show is only 30mins!

I agree. Quinn and Eric are AWOL. Thorne is on a bit more now, but why is he involved in Hope’s line? I guess she’ll put Emma’s nose out of joint.

I think Kiara’s eyebrows are too much and takeover her face.

Never heard of her. I hate when they bump up the teens for summer. Use the characters already on the canvas. Where are Quinn and Eric? Shouldn’t Quinn be involved in Bill using and dumping her son, Wyatt????

I’m all for this. I love when they use fresh faces and stories during the summer. If they didn’t, it would be the same old merry go round with the vets.

I agree. How many viewers under 60 care one whit about great grandpa, Eric? How many times do we have to pretend that Bill is still a stud and Brook is still a femme fatale? It’s freaking absurd. My objection to the newbies is where is Nicole? Why didn’t they just write for her? She is talented and familiar. We don’t need Emma nor, this new girl. And give Carter a story! I don’t care about this new guy. Nobody on the current writing staff has enough skill to make these new characters compelling before the audience they were hired… Read more »

I, for one, care many “whits” about Eric and I’m sure many others do. Makes no difference to me how old he is; he’s the heart/head of Forrester. Miss his presence on the show and hope he’s back soon and featured more often.

I’m speaking of viewers under sixty. Actually advertisers who pay to keep these shows on the air are the ones who don’t care what anyone over 49 thinks.

I’m way under 60 and I like him. And there are many viewers who like Laura, Scorpio, Anna, Monica, etc on GH; Anna and Laura are near 60 and Monica and Scorpio are over 70. Eric on B&B is a great character. And while I think “Bill” is an egocentric narcissist, he IS still hot, Brooke is still quite attractive, etc. These shows are at their best when they have characters from different generations as they’ve always had since their inception. As for advertisers, they always want to attract younger demographics… in prime time, as well. And yet prime time… Read more »

You make good, valid points. I maintain my views but respect yours.
I’m frustrated with the writing more than anything. The casting and who tptb chooses to showcase is secondary to the fact that the stories are lousy.

Thank you, Soapluv for your reply. Just to clarify; I’m not against new characters or younger characters. I just always have an issue when people think people are too old…in any capacity. And as I said (and, yes, this is subjective) I enjoy characters of all ages IF I like the character and the story.

As for B&B, I agree. Some of the stories are lousy or just repetitive. I wrote that to Rose several comments below.

Here’s hoping it picks up and that we have our soaps on for quite a while to come!

Thank you for the cordial exchange. 😉

I’m going to assume she has a past with the new British nephew/intern, Xander. Can’t tell by the picture: is she old enough to be his mother? Not liking any of it. So let’s see; they got rid of Rick (recurring), Thomas, Zende, Nicole, RJ, Cocoa, the Spectra’s (though Sally’s back), Eric and Quinn are barely on, Charlie’s barely around…what’s left? The entire “clan” is gone and we’ve got two new interns in place of RJ and Cocoa and now another newbie. Also think “Emma” needs a bit more acting experience; and don’t get me started on Sheryl Underwood. WHY… Read more »

Rebecca1…Agree…hoping this is just the lazy, summer interlude storyline, and will be over shortly. About the only thing I like is that Sally is back. I do like her with Wyatt. But enough kissy stuff. Let’s get Sally creative again. And enough of Hope/Steffy/Liam/ Bill.

Hi, Rose. Well, it’s a month since I posted that and to be honest, I’m enjoying this new character Zoe! She brings a weird, funky, interesting vibe. “Emma” (the actress) needs more experience; Xander is a cute addition. I agree about Sally. Love that she’s back but not if she’s just going to be in the background. Somehow without her own company, her “gram”, Saul, Darlita; just not the same. I love Sally and don’t they should have gotten rid of her in the first place; just hope they don’t waste the character. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen… Read more »

Rebecca1…I think Zoe does have an exotic air about her. I don’t particularly like the character, but she is really interesting and shakes it up in an otherwise same-old, same-old B&B. I do like how she can hold her own/dominate a scene even with the more experienced actors around her. Quite a feat for a summer newbie. I’d like it if Sally and Wyatt decided to start their own offshoot design company, and bring the rest of Sally’s “family” back? My thoughts on the B&B characters…is it my imagination that they have to work with less established, major actors than… Read more »

Hey again, Rose. I’m not sure about your question. Did you mean that the established, experienced actors on B&B have scenes with less experienced actors or that the actors in general are less established, experienced. If it’s the latter, no; I don’t think the B&B actors are less established. Most of them are from other soaps and are excellent in their own right. If for some reason they were off B&B I’d love to see any of them on GH. And, of course, we can’t compare shows or cast. B&B is only a half hour and they have a much… Read more »

Rebecca1…My question really isn’t very clear. you know, mixing up one word when you mean another can make a big difference! It should read ” they have to work with “fewer” than “less” established major actors than on GH.

I don’t like this story line. Have to tape the show then fast forward to see the characters I enjoy. I sgree, this is only a half hour show. I miss the regulars! Please cancel this contract. Might just discontinue the show.

Daytime Emmys Land Two-Year Deal At CBS; NATAS Reveals This Year’s Broadcast Set For June 25th

Some great news for daytime fans!  Following a deal announced today between National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) and CBS, the network now has a two-year deal to broadcast the Daytime Emmy Awards.

CBS will present this year’s 48th Annual Daytime Emm Awards, on Friday, June 25 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT), on the CBS Television Network and it will stream live and on demand on Paramount+.   This will mark the 15th time CBS has broadcast the Daytime Emmy Awards, more than any other network.

In addition, this is the first time since 2008 that one network will broadcast both the Daytime and Primetime Emmy awards in the same year. CBS last hosted both specials in 2005.

 

The Daytime Emmy Awards have recognized outstanding achievement in daytime television programming since 1974.  The awards are presented to programs broadcast between 2:00 AM and 6:00PM, as well as all forms of children’s television programming and certain categories of streaming and syndicated content.

NATAS also revealed today that this year’s Daytime Emmys are the most competitive ever, with more than 3,100 submissions featuring content that originally premiered in calendar-year 2020, judged by a pool of peer professionals from across the television industry.

The 48th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards will be produced by NATAS and Associated Television International (ATI), which produced Daytime Emmy Award ceremonies on The CW in 2009 and on CBS in 2010, 2011 and 2020. Adam Sharp and Steve Ulrich are executive producers from NATAS, while David McKenzie is executive producer and director from ATI.

So excited about the Daytime Emmys will return to network TV for two more years guaranteed, and that we have a date for this year’s presentation this summer? Comment below.
