I love Sheryl Underwood, she is a very funny lady. She is loud, but the woman has a good heart. Sheryl loves her soaps, and I love her for that.

Yes, ironic that she’s on a show that replaced a soap, but I don’t hold that against her.

Sheryl is always ridiculously loud. It’s just not even funny, and I think that’s what she thinks she is — she thinks she’s being funny. Unfortunately, she just sounds very stereotypical. She can’t even hold a conversation without screaming, and “shucking and jiving” about something. She should be tossed out. Holly Robinson Peete was SOOOOOOOOOO much better. I guess they got rid of Holly of because she REFUSED to “shuck and jive” for the camera.

Jack, darling — you definitely made me laugh! Thank you, sweetie, but I can assure you with 100% certainty that I am in no way jealous of Sheryl Underwood. I think it’s cute that you’re defending her though.

Sheryl is a beautiful soul who doesn’t have a hateful bone in her body always something nice to say about everyone. She is a funny lady and a great asset to the show. She is loved by all her fans but unfortunately is and always will be hateful people like (Trophy Lady) who love to spread hate.

Nikki, my dear, what are you talking about? What “hateful” thing did I say about Sheryl? I said she wasn’t funny. Since when does that translate into “hateful?” I think you need to relax, Nikki. Though Sheryl may be your BFF in your head, I can assure you that she’s probably heard many people say that she’s not funny. It’s not just me, sweetie.

Personally, I’m not a fan of this corporate synergy; ‘plausible cross-overs’ between BOLD and RESTLESS are one thing, but I don’t need to see “Abby” hawking a showcase on PRICE or see Sheryl Underwood losing-her-religion on any CBS Daytime star in pants on THE TALK! :/ It reeks of desperation (“look-at-us, look-at-us”) for the #1 Network in Daytime (for close to 30 yrs); they don’t need to try so hard to be relevant!

I think the “secret project” is that Christian LeBlanc and Sheryl Underwood will be hosting this year’s Daytime Emmy Awards!

That would mean they were back on a network, CBS, and I don’t see that happening considering there are only 4 soaps left.

””a “secret project” which loops in the CBS Daytime line-up of shows which includes: The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful, The Talk, The Price is Right and Let’s Make A Deal!””’

That ^^^ says ”crossovers”

Angelica [Love that name!] it is nice that you loop one of your soaps into ANY other daytime shows. Even though Y&R is #1, you can never get enough press, especially with only four soaps left! BUT, yes there is a BUT, PLEASE NO SHERYL UNDERWOOD! She may be a sweet person but she is so loud, obnoxious and dry humps every male soap actor. She may be a fan BUT she is a journalist! Act professional! Have Ian Ward show her her path!

Best secret would be… development of a new daytime drama! That would be awesome. I would even go as far as to hope for an original production, not a spinoff of the existing Bell-borne serials.

A man can dream… :- )

CBS Daytime is becoming what ABC used to be for me. A strong lineup with all the shows tied together. For years I watched only ABC and had no reason to turn the channel. But then they cancelled AMC and OLTL, and everything changed. CBS seems to be making all the smart moves, while ABC just keeps getting worse.

Get over it, LOL. Guiding Light was a good soap, at one point. But ratings fell and they cancelled it. I got over it. As The World Turns really sucked the last 2 years, before it got canned. Y&R is not going anywhere. Ratings are always good. The number 1 soap in Daytime.

GL’s ratings fell because of the ridiculous decisions by the network to revamp the production module. Nobody liked it. Fans complained. The network’s response? We don’t know why no one is watching. They wouldn’t listen. It was deliberate sabotage and then they turned around and did the same thing to ATWT. Ignominious endings for two great programs.

If only the secret project was an As The World Turns and Guiding Light spin off with characters from both shows or that CBS had purchased OLTL and AMC from Prospect Park; hey I can dream!

I wish I were good at making GIFs. I really need a GIF of a scene from “The Lion King” in which Little Simba entices Little Nala to go to “the watering hole” with him, and Little Nala agrees, but cautions; “It better not be something dumb!!”

This is how I feel about so many promises from Daytime these days. A new soap would be exciting. Something that would truly impact the genre and its legacy would be exciting. But at this point, I just don’t want to get my hopes up.

Speaking of Christian, missed Michael Baldwin being front and center in GC—- such a shame to have such a great actor sidelined. As for the topic at hand, perhaps it will be some common PSA that all the shows at CBS will promote on a specific day– or maybe a contest where in order to be eligible you have to watch each show to get a clue— it could be crossovers or a combo of all the above–

Guiding light and as the world turns and all my children were three of my favorite soaps all time. Yes gl and atwt werent good the last several years but still great shows that will always be missed. Wish they would either create a new soap or have a soap show that showed old clips of atwt and gl or possibly showed reruns. I miss soapnet. We will see what they are goin to do but im hopin its domething like this.

Unless it is another soap opera in the lineup I dont care . Does it really excite anyone if soap stars go to their boring talk show ?

Tyra Banks Named New Host and Executive Producer of ‘Dancing with the Stars’

On the heels of the departures of Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews as hosts of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, comes word of just who the new host will be!

That gig is going to none other than former America’s Top Model host. Tyra Banks, who will also serve as the ballroom-dance competition’s executive producer for its upcoming 29th season set to air later this fall.

DWTS is watching very closely the coronavirus pandemic of just how and when they can begin production and how the show will look.

With the pick of Banks to helm the show,  ABC said that the team is planning to refresh the format, while “honoring the show America loves”.  DWTS is produced by BBC Studios’ Los Angeles production arm, alongside Andrew Llinares.

In a statement, Tyra Banks expressed: “I’ve been a fan of DWTS since its beginning. The fun mixed with raw emotion, seeing celebrities push past their comfort zones, the sizzling dance performances, it’s always transported me to my days of turning it up 10 notches on the catwalk. Tom has set a powerful stage, and I’m excited to continue the legacy and put on my executive producer and hosting hats.”

Karey Burke, president, ABC Entertainment shared: “Tom has been an integral part of the ABC family for nearly two decades, from hosting AFV to Dancing with the Stars – we are grateful for all he and Erin have done to make Dancing a success.  As we gear up for the show’s 29th season, we can’t wait to welcome Tyra Banks to our Dancing stage. Tyra is an award-winning multi-hyphenate whose fierce female prowess and influence across many industries have made an indelible mark. Her fresh take on America’s favorite dancing competition will surely bring more than a ‘Smize’ to fans everywhere.”

Valerie Bruce, general manager, LA Productions, BBC Studios, added, “Tyra Banks is an icon whose powerful presence, trademark confidence, and industry-leading achievements inspire us. We are proud to partner with ABC to welcome her as the new host of Dancing with the Stars. This represents a landmark moment in our 28 seasons producing Dancing with the Stars as we take this iconic show in a new creative direction. We offer our sincere thanks to Tom and Erin, whom we will always consider part of the Dancing with the Stars family.”

So, what do you think of Tyra as the new host and EP of Dancing with the Stars?  How will she liven up the format of the show? Comment below.

Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews Exit ‘Dancing with the Stars’

The ballroom dance-competition will look quite different when season 29 of Dancing with the Stars makes its return on ABC.

Longtime host of the series Tom Bergeron (he has been with the show since 2005) and sidekick and co-host Erin Andrews are not returning to the series.  Andrews joined as co-host in 2014 and was a previous contestant.

On Monday, Bergeron got ahead of the news addressing his departure on his Twitter account sharing: “Just informed @DancingABC will be continuing without me. It’s been an incredible 15 year run and the most unexpected gift of my career. I’m grateful for that and for the lifelong friendships made. That said, now what am I supposed to do with all of these glitter masks?”

On Tuesday, Andrews  put out a statement sharing:  “Thank you ABC and the entire Dancing with the Stars family for 6 memorable seasons.  Those years wouldn’t have been as special without my loving host Tom Bergeron, the talented dancers, and witty judges. I will always cherish my days on that set, even if I wasn’t the best at walking in heels.”

In a joint statement from ABC and producer BBC Studios, they thanked the duo: “Tom Bergeron will forever be part of the Dancing with the Stars family. As we embark on a new creative direction, he departs the show with our sincerest thanks and gratitude for his trademark wit and charm that helped make this show a success. Erin will also not be returning, and we appreciate all that she brought to the ballroom. Fans have been rooting for her since she originally competed as a contestant back in 2010, and her signature sense of humor has become a hallmark of the show.”

Just how the dance-reality competition series will look comes this fall in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic remains to be seen.

So, what do you think of the departures of Bergeron and Andrews? Who do you think will be named hosts of the series for its upcoming season? Comment below.
