It’s good to see all the daytime soaps doing well. I think the soap ratings for Thanksgiving week will be high.

I don’t care about The Talk. But I’m very happy for Y&R and B&B. Soaps are not dead unless what some network executives would like to make us think.

Out of all those shows, I only watch Y&R and I’m not enjoying it.
I FF through most of the overly boring stuff..
I continue to watch hoping to see a change and some good entertainment, so far no luck lol ..
The one good thing, I save my time by FFing through 50% of it 🙂

If I had to watch it live (not able to FF) I probably would not watch Y&R…. lol
so– Y&R is what I watch on CBS daytime, at night via the internet..

Why the happiness about The Talk’s ratings Michael? It’s not even a soap opera. What will be next? A thread praising the ratings of The Chew?

I know some ATWT fans are still bitter because it was cancelled and
replaced by The Talk. I cheer for its success because it promoted Y&R
and B&B by having their stars on The Talk.

Glad for CBS. I know some fans of YR are still complaining about the show (mostly Delia) and I don’t like Phelps at all, but I know she’ll eventually be gone, so I’ve stopped with all the negativity about it.

It’s not bad at all. Some fans from other shows call it “boring”, but the show has always moved slow. I’d NEVER want it to resort to anything remotely resembling GH, nor do I want any of the crazy storylines that sometimes were present under MAB.

So if you don’t enjoy it…please turn it off…but also stop with the constant complaining about the show and only pointing out the negative. If people continue to do that, it just proves that if they really can’t find anything good about it they shouldn’t watch for now.

‘Grand Hotel’s’ Lincoln Younes Cast As Lead In CW’s Reboot Pilot of ‘The Lost Boys’

In intriguing casting news, Australian-born actor, Lincoln Younes (Ex-Home and Away and most recently ABC’s Grand Hotel, where he played Danny) has landed one of the leading roles in CW’s reboot and upcoming pilot of The Lost Boys based on the 1987 movie.

Joining Younes in the other lead roles in the pilot will be Braeden Cook (Industry) and Ruby Cruz (Castle Rock).

According to Deadline the series is said to be about the following: “When a mother and her Gen Z sons, one played by Cook, move to the seaside town where she grew up, they discover there’s a sinister reason the local cool kids sleep all day, party all night, never grow up and never get old. Family bonds are tested as the brothers find themselves on opposite sides of a mythological struggle. Based on the 1987 cult classic that revolutionized how we think about vampires.”

In The Lost Boys reboot, Younes plays Benjamin, the charismatic leader of the gang of vampires in the town. It is a version of the David character played in the movie by Kiefer Sutherland.

The pilot is written by Heather Mitchell and Rob Thomas and will be directed by Marcos Siega.

So, what do you think of a TV version and reboot of The Lost Boys? Comment below.

They shared: “Our mother was a loving and supportive wife, mother and grandmother.  Gracious and kind, she enriched the lives of all who knew her. We will miss her tremendously.”

Born in Chicago, Illinois on June 9, 1928, Bell was co-creator, along with her late husband William J. Bell, of two of daytime television’s most successful dramas: The Young and the Restless (Y&R), and The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B).

Bell’s career as a broadcast journalist began in Chicago, where she hosted and produced her own show, The Lee Phillip Show, for CBS TV for over 30 years. A pioneer in the evolution of the afternoon talk show format, Bell was a trailblazer in the exploration of timely social issues and concerns.  Additionally she produced and narrated numerous award-winning specials and documentaries covering social concerns such as foster children, the subject of rape, children and divorce, and babies born to women in prison, to name a few.. Bell interviewed heads of state such as Presidents Gerald Ford and Ronald Regan; film actors Judy Garland, Clint Eastwood and Jerry Lewis; musicians such as The Rolling Stones and The Beatles; television and stage stars such as Lucille Ball, Jack Benny and Oprah Winfrey; and many other politicians, authors, journalists, fashion designers and rock stars.

She was awarded 16 regional (Chicago) Emmy awards and numerous Golden Mike awards. Bell is also the recipient of the Alfred I. Dupont/Columbia University Award for the special The Rape of Paulette, the first program in Chicago to explore the issue.  In 1977, she was the first woman to receive the coveted Governors Award from the Chicago chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.  In 1980, she was named “Person of the Year” by the Broadcast Advertising Club of Chicago and the “Outstanding Woman in Communications” by the Chicago YMCA.  She also received the Salvation Army’s William Booth Award for her distinguished career in communications and social service. Bell won the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series as co-creator of The Young and the Restless in 1975 and was recipient of the Daytime Emmys’ Lifetime Achievement Award in 2007.
