I agree. Why the constant underestimating of daytime viewers and their intelligence?

Honestly, this looks no better than what my teenage niece and her friends would film if they were goofing around. There is no thought, no planning. Everyone mugs shamelessly, a camera is on and some poor intern gets to edit this unfortunate, indifferent mess.

Firm. No.

Not safe for daytime should be about the back stage drama of a real soap opera. I can’t take this project seriously at all. The next digital series CBS produces should bring on the drama, heart ache, and back stabbing. These are the main ingredients to make and produce a good daytime serial.

I like that Angelic is trying to promote CBS daytime, but the clip didn’t do much for me. Don’t mind the more casual, everyday, blooper kind of stuff, especially from soaps. But some of it has elements of the dumbing-down humor that is all to apparent in reality tv.

IKR!!! My only hope is to let this be CBS’s forward movement into web serials.

It comes across as though someone left the gates unlocked at the insane asylum and they are running amok.

Pass.

I’m sorry but I have never liked anything that mocks daytime drama– for those of us who really love our shows these parodies are insulting– to those who do not watch daytime these parodies only reinforces the stereotypes– and if this is a move to get some younger folks to watch daytime based on this YouTube channel they will be disappointed when the shows aren’t as “funny” as they are on the web– If this is a ploy to get hits, and make some money by going viral, well if they need the money so badly they should pay the… Read more »

Bill Bell would have agreed with your comment. The biography about him mentions his watching the movie “Soap Dish” (very late 80’s/early 90’s), a comedy about a soap opera starring Sally Field and Whoopi Goldberg. His son, Bradley Bell, remarked that his father did not like the movie. According to the book, Bill took soaps seriously and didn’t appreciate them being mocked, which he felt the movie was doing. I don’t feel as strongly about it but I don’t see the point of all of this type of stuff. What these shows need is DECENT WRITING. These networks and the… Read more »

Against my better judgement, I watched and wished I hadn’t. It does not make daytime look good. It’s just all kinds of stupid. I guess it’s supposed to be a parody, but it wasn’t funny.

WOW…..who would subscribe to this nonsense????? so sad that this Angelica person thinks that everything comes down to social media………when again, as previously stated, all the soaps need to do is have great creative stories/writing for the characters….this is nothing but a Kardashian/Honey BooBoo disaster waiting to premiere….not sure what target audience that this is aimed towards, but i’m guessing 12-13 year old teenage girls….with all the awful reality shows on today, this will not be a major hit for anyone at CBS daytime….i’m hoping that this Ms McDaniels won’t be in her job very long, if this is the… Read more »

Nancy Lee Grahn Debuted 25 Years Ago Today as General Hospital’s Alexis Davis

Back on September 26th, 1996, (25 years ago today!) the new character of Alexis Davis made her debut on ABC’s General Hospital, and brought to the iconic soap opera, the talents of Nancy Lee Grahn.

Grahn, had already made a name for herself with her captivating portrayal of lawyer Julia Wainwright Capwell on Santa Barbara for which she won a Supporting Actress Daytime Emmy in 1989, in a tie with AMC’s Debbi Morgan.

Back in April, General Hospital, marked this milestone with a special episode for Grahn, that could be remembered come next year’s Emmys.

Alexis, or shall we call her “Natasha”, was introduced on GH as the daughter of Mikkos Cassadine and his mistress, whose throat was slit by Helena Cassadine, which has played into Alexis’ story for many years to come.  At the time of her entrance to the show, Wendy Riche was GH’s executive producer.

Through the years, viewers have witnessed Grahn’s portrayal of: a tough legal eagle, an honest depiction of a woman battling the bottle, failed romances, while all the time being a loving and faithful mother to her three daughters, Sam, Molly, and Kristina.

Nancy won her second Supporting Actress Daytime Emmy, this time for her role as Alexis in 2012, and has been a multi-nominee in the Lead Actress category for her performances on the ABC daytime drama series.

Kate Grahn, Nancy’s daughter took to social media within the last few hours since we posted this story to share a video on how thankful she and her mom are to GH fans and Nancy’s time on the show which afforded her the ability to have and raise Kate.  Check that out below.

Here’s to Nancy for giving us 25 years of her on-screen work as Alexis!

Congratulate Nancy and tell us your favorite Alexis Davis moments via the comment section.
