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.

How about pouring money and energy and creative talent and new technology into a viable new daytime drama?

Amen!!!! The executive at CBS are either stupid, clueless, or don’t give a damn if they think this Daytime Parody is what fans want.

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 head of CBS less money– and now that I got off my soap box and defended daytime, I will admit I laughed when the guy yelled come on down and the fake cat stuck in the tree landed on his face–that was priceless LOL– sue me I’m human.

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 producers don’t seem to get it. In the past decade, we’ve gotten a perfume company (named for Jabot on Y&R), a handful of non-fiction books that were tied into existing shows (ATWT and AMC), stunt casting, bland looking new sets, gutting of long running sets (Kay Chancellor’s mansion on Y&R now looks like a correctional facility), etc. NONE of this stuff works.

They have done everything in the world but focus on what matters —– DECENT WRITING. The same pool of writers float from show to show these days bringing unoriginal, warmed over plots to each new job, viewing each show as interchangeable and not bothering to really learn anything about it or its history.

This stuff is a waste of time. Angelica would use her time more wisely if she focused on finding new, talented, creative writers who could carry these shows forward rather than this inane stuff.

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 best creative idea that she came up with…..we won’t real stories, real writing, about real characters that we have grown up with….not this!!!!!! Please take the money and hire better writers and producers….stop with the recycling of the old writers…..think back JFP and Pratt were responsible for us losing Another World, Santa Barbara…now we’ve got Dena Higley ruining Days of our Lives….Bradley Bell only knows how to write stories around triangles…..only show I see that has had a resurgence is General Hospital….at least the characters at GH are making more sense and the dialogue has gotten much better, and they are getting back to real stories and not what RC had been spinning out……thanks for listening….pity that the top brass of the networks don’t take the time to read what the fans really want 🙁

Nathan Fillion Talks His Start On OLTL On ‘The View’ With Whoopi Goldberg

On Thursday’s episode of ABC’s The View, Nathan Fillion visited the show promoting his series, The Rookie.  But during the beginning of his conversation with Whoopi Goldberg, he talked about what he learned from his humble beginnings in show business as Joey Buchanan on the beloved One Life to Live.

Of course, OLTL fans recall that Nathan was involved in a romantic storyline with Llanview icon, Robin Strasser (Dorian) and played the on-screen son to another icon, Erika Slezak (Viki).

Courtesy/ABC

Fillion shared about this time on One Life: “Everything I did and everything I do I learned on that show.  I never speak poorly on daytime … it was such a warm kind place to be.   I learned everything there.  I don’t know where an actor can go and work with people that have worked in the business for 25, 35, 40 years, and I had no idea what i’m doing …and they said, ‘no problem here is what you do’.  So, it was very good people.”

Goldberg also alluded to that she “missed the soaps” meaning All My Children and One Life to Live that shot right where they are in New York City at the ABC studios on 66th and 67th street.

Watch Nathan talk his early career and more with the ladies of The View below.  Then, let us know what you think about the sentiments he share from his time at One Life to Live via the comment section.

Y&R’s Thad Luckinbill To Produce ‘Postscript’ The Film Adaptation of Sequel To “P.S. I Love You”

We all know that Thad Luckinbill (Ex-J.T Hellstrom, The Young and the Restless) wears many hats in the entertainment industry.  He acts, he writes, he produces, he sings … is there anything that this talented guy doesn’t do?

Now comes word that Luckinbill’s production company (with his brother Trent and Molly Smith), Black Label Media, in conjunction with Alcon Entertainment, has secured the rights to the the novel Postscript and will turn it into a motion picture.

Postscript is the recently released sequel to Cecelia Ahern’s 2004 debut novel, P.S. I Love You.  The original movie starred two-time Oscar winner, Hilary Swank as Holly who loses her husband tragically when he dies from a brain tumor.  Then, a grieving Holly discovers that her husband has left behind 10 letters designed to help Holly overcome her sorrow and transition to a new life.

According to Deadline, who broke the news of this film deal: In, Postscript (which hit book stores this week in the U.S.) the story picks up Holly seven years after her husband’s death with Holly having peacefully moved on with her life.  However, when Holly’s sister asks her to tell the story of the “PS, I Love You” letters on her podcast — she does so reluctantly, not wanting to reopen old wounds. Soon after the episode airs, people start reaching out to Holly, and they all have one thing in common: they’re terminally ill and want to leave their own missives behind for loved ones.”
