Sadly, this “Daymoji” app is a desperate attempt to reach the young demographic. Another such attempt, the misguided launch of AMC and OLTL as online series, proved to be a dismal failure.

Of course, CBS wants to do all it can to increase viewership. And, yes, CBS is thrilled and proud to have been the top daytime network for 30 years. But let’s face it: ratings for the 4 remaining soaps are nowhere near what they were 30 years ago.

Today’s producers and network executives could learn a lot from the golden era of soaps (1970s). Tell engrossing stories, develop rich characters and families, and create compelling drama. Newest technological advances, be damned. Yet today’s soaps are not your mother’s (or grandmother’s) soap operas — and that’s NOT a good thing…

AMC and OLTL failed because Prospect Park didn’t have a sustainable or viable business model.

I wish CBS daytime would use their resource to develop an online soap. But this crap they come up with just boggles my mind.

This idea is just as bad as those comedy skits CBS put on YouTube.

Brooklyn Rae Silzer Making A Return To General Hospital

As General Hospital continues to surprise its viewers with some notables from the show’s history, look for another fan favorite, Brooklyn Rae Silzer (Emma) to make her way back to Port Charles for an appearance coming up next month.

Excited to finally be able to announce she will reappear on GH, Silzer tweeted: “Dreams come true! Thank you so much @GeneralHospital @valentinifrank for having me back!”

Emma Scorpio Drake’s return is scheduled for Thursday, February 6th, but due to coverage of the President Donald Trump impeachment trial and current episodes being pushed back, this date may change.

The last time viewers saw Emma was back in 2018, when she came to town to visit her grandmother, Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) for Christmas.

Would you like to see Emma stick around Port Charles? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Hallmark Channel Chief Bill Abbott Exits In Aftermath Of Same-Sex Ad Controversy

Looks like there is still fallout from the Hallmark Channel pulling several ads from wedding planner, Zola that centered on a same-sex lesbian couple kissing at their wedding.

Now, Bill Abbott, who has been Crown Media Family Networks president and CEO for the last 11 years, is exiting the company.  The announcement was made today by Mike Perry, president and CEO of Hallmark Cards Inc.

No successor has been named. “I have tremendous confidence in the Crown Media management team and, with this team in place, I will begin a search for Bill’s replacement,” Perry said. “I want to thank Bill for his many years of success and contributions to Crown Media and wish him continued success.”

Prior to the firestorm against the cable outlet for pulling the Zola ads, (after conservative group One Million Moms petitioned to have the ads removed) and the network complied, the company was doing well.

Abbott presided over a period of growth and visibility for Hallmark including: Christmas programming and regular opportunities for seasoned A-list stars that in return attracted viewers and ratings. Bill Abbott’s exit is the latest result of Hallmark’s efforts to quickly turn the page on the bad PR.

Deadline reported that according to people familiar with the internal discussions, many people at the network expressed their preference for restoring the ad quickly, while Abbott went against their wishes and kept it off the air.

Judith Light To Receive Prestigious Honor At GLAAD Media Awards In New York

Another wonderful acknowledgement is coming its way to two-time Daytime Emmy and Tony winning actress, Judith Light (Ex-Karen, OLTL).

News on Wednesday has that Light will be honored at the upcoming 31st annual GLAAD Media Awards in New York City with the Excellence in Media Award in a ceremony hosted by Lilly Singh. The ceremony will take place on Thursday, March 19th.

l

According to Deadline, who broke the news, the Excellence in Media Award is presented to media professionals who have made a significant difference in promoting acceptance of LGBTQ people. Light joins previous honorees Ava DuVernay, Robert De Niro, Patti LaBelle, Debra Messing, Tyra Banks, Julianne Moore, Glenn Close, Barbara Walters, Diane Sawyer, among others, who have received this prestigious award from the organization.

“Judith Light stood up for and with LGBTQ people when others in media and entertainment refused to speak up, and she has never left our side,” said GLAAD President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis in a statement “When the GLAAD Media Awards first started and was a small event with little visibility, she was one of the few entertainers who would join us in calling for LGBTQ representation, so it is only fitting to now honor her advocacy on what has become the largest LGBTQ stage in the world. From standing alongside LGBTQ people during the AIDS crisis, to fighting for marriage equality, to now uplifting transgender people and issues, Judith advocates with a unique passion and an unending dedication that uplifts.”
