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.

Drew Barrymore Daytime Talk Show Pilot In The Works

This fall, new talkers from Tamron Hall and Kelly Clarkson will be part of the daytime television landscape, and now comes word that Drew Barrymore may enter the space with a new talk show for her that is in development with the pilot being shot this coming week.

According to Variety, details of the proposed one-hour show are not all clear, but Drew is said to be one of the executive producers of the pilot episode and yet there is no showrunner attached to the project at this time.  Barrymore’s company, Flower Films is likely attached as well.

Back in 2016, Barrymore had a deal in place with Warner Brothers Telepictures for a talk show, but that never came to pass, in part to a lukewarm response from TV station groups at that time.

However now the new regime at CBS’ syndication arm is said to have ‘high hopes’ for the show and they feel that Drew will appeal and do well in the daytime arena.

Barrymore recently appeared in her third season of  Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet in its 30 episode season. Through her Flower Films she was been an executive producer on unscripted series including TLC’s Rattled and VH1’s Tough Love.

So, would you be interested. or intrigued to see what kind of show Drew Barrymore has to offer in daytime? Think she would be a good host? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

The Bold and the Beautiful Ratings Winner With Phoebe is Beth Reveal

Great news for The Bold and the Beautiful and their long-awaited payoff: that the little girl being raised by Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) as “Phoebe” is really Liam (Scott Clifton) and Hope’s (Annika Noelle) daughter, Beth, who they believed had died in the long and twisty baby switch storyline.

B&B was the highest rated daytime television show in the key 25-54 womens demo and the first time in the 32-year-old history of the CBS sudser that it has been atop of that demo. That is not only among the network soaps but all series genres in daytime for the week of August 5-9 –  quite the feat.

During the ratings week, Liam figured out that Phoebe was Beth, and eventually after Thomas’ (Matt Atkinson) manipulations told Hope the truth.

All this goes to show that as frustrated as viewers get wanting the truth to come out in a story they follow; when it finally does, they are along for the ride. Something B&B executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell does exceptionally well with big umbrella storylines that hold major ramifications for many on the canvas.

Congrats to Brad and the B&B team!

So, what do you think of BOLD’s performance in the ratings for the big week in story? Comment below

Kelly Monaco Addresses Billy Miller’s Departure From GH

In a post via her twitter account, General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco (Sam) shared her heartbreak on her longtime scene partner, Billy Miller’s (Drew) exit from the ABC daytime drama series.  This was the first time that Kelly addressed the situation in a public forum.

Miller came on to GH back in 2014 as Jason Morgan, following the departure of Steve Burton, who then wound up on Y&R.  When Burton returned to GH in 2017, Miller’s part was then turned-in-to, Jason’s twin, Drew Cain.

Through a great portion of Miller’s run on GH, he was paired romantically on -screen with Monaco and the duo were, and have remained, one of the most popular duo’s in daytime.

Monaco expressed the following in her message: “I feel like I have to address this situation. #BillyMiller ‘s untimely departure from #gh. Honestly, I can not come up with the words to describe how I feel about this decision… a decision that may not be what our audience thinks to be true. I’m heartbroken… more to come.”
