True Patrick… They will essentially bolster CBS by not trying harder… Yes CBS uses the same Bell model for their shows …good or bad EP’s and/or writers it always works on some level…. By 2018 Days audience will be CBS’s… you can’t keep telling fans EVERY year.. Wait till September and our new writers… Yeah we fired then before but they’re better now they get it… And a pig can wear a bikini and take the world by storm.. GIVE ME A BREAK LOL

I know Y&R has been #1 for a bazillion years but to see it improve from last years number is good for the format in general.

B&B is a great show. I love the pacing and the aerial shots. Rena Sofer, Heather Tom, Scott Clifton, Katherine Kelly Lang and Don Diamont are my favorites.

B&B is the only soap to make money internationally—I do remember reading some time ago that it is the #1 show in Italy. Rena Sofer is a big draw for me too because I love the hell Quinn raises.

The motto for CBS Daytime is if it ain’t broke don’t fix it– they have a solid daytime line up with good numbers they would be fools to mess with it.

Well that’s all good news except for The Talk, which is a throne for “Mrs. O” to sit on and recieve worship from all and joke about how much plastic surgery she has had. Who knew do many wantef to watch that??,

Julie has class and is good at what she does, Cheryl is the most annoying person on TV and Sharon has milked every last drop of blood out of the Ozzie’s fame! She is disgusting!

Sheryl Underwood is not annoying at all, she is a funny lady and is a wonderful lady.

Timmin girlfriend you need to chill out, learn how to spell Sheryl OK lol. She Spells her first name with an S, not a C. Sharon is a cool chic, she is straight to the point. no BS with her. Sheryl is funny, loud and a terrific woman. Julie has grown on me, I love her now.

The soaps are here to stay, that’s really good news for us fans. I love you CBS.

It’s good news and I’m pleased, but I can’t help but still feel a little bitter, even after all these years. If CBS had shown the same concern and care for “Guiding Light” and “As the World Turns” as it has for the Bell serials, we’d have four soaps on CBS Daytime.

Daytime tv is struggling to stay alive and can’t pay for much of anything, the soaps are extreme money out for daytime tv..
We are very fortunate that we the 4 soaps ..

Daytime tv is failing, we have to be grateful that there are 4 soaps..

I agree. It’s horrible that they were replaced by game shows, which I refuse to watch.

Glad to see CBS stick with their daytime shows. Not that they are always perfect like recent soap promos, IMO. But at least they promote them. Makes you wonder if ABC had invested money, imagination, and a little re-freshing into AMC and OLTL to adapt for changing daytime viewing demos and habits, where their daytime would be now. It just always boggles my mind that you alienate a long standing, loyal soap viewer (many of whom have boycotted ABC ever since) by cancelling their soaps, and try to start from scratch attracting a new audience. And then there’s the Kelly thing. Is the CBS and ABC culture that different?

Talk about imagination with a little humor…LazyBoy is running a fun ad in my market with Brooke Shields that is a take on soap operas, Cassadines and Stavros. Guess they think there’s an audience/customer.

Constantine from American Idol and B&B stars in the ad with her.

What happened to Brooke’s career! I think the male lead was a former American Idol?

Oh yeah I’ve seen that. It reminds me of her stint on Friends where she was a soap opera fan acting like a soap actor with Joey.

You ask an interesting question Rose. The goal of all the networks is to spend the least amount for programming while making the most from advertising. I think CBS watched the continuing fire storm of rage against the alphabet network/mouse company for canceling AMC and OLTL and said, “We don’t want any part of this.” So, CBS will tighten the budget while keeping their programs on the air for as long as possible.

I am definitely one who has boycotted the alphabet network since the last day One Life to Live aired and will continue to do so.

Rose

Maybe part of the $ tightening comes from not spending a lot on the sets. I’ve noticed long time viewers to Y&R commenting about this, like Catherine’s house.

This is good news. I’ve always felt the best acting on television is done on daytime. And when you consider their hectic filming schedule and the partial sets they often work on, it’s even more admirable. Consider the concentration and focus it must take to make the shows believable and dramatic, without a lot of the perks of nighttime series. Soaps rule!

I sincerely am happy for them both even though they have changed so much it’s called learning to roll with the times!

The CBS game shows and “The Talk” are way more profitable than the CBS soaps. Some of the profits of those shows are used to help Y&R and B&B. Viewers who want to crush the CBS soaps shouldn’t watch the other CBS daytime programs.

GH and DAYS fans should also consider this: Each time you watch game and talk shows, the more likely your soap will be replaced with a game or talk show.

Rose

But…CURSES, CBS cancelled one of my favorite nighttime show…’Persons Of Interest.’ From what I’ve read, fans of the show are not happy at all, the ratings were fine, but it could have something to do with Warner Brothers “owning” POI. It’s a shame when you have a really interesting show that gets cancelled in a “sea” of relatity shows.

General Hospital

GH ‘One Aftershock After Another’ Promo : Fayden’s Daughter, Ava Stalked, Judge Rules On Franco

This week and in October, General Hospital looks to be ramping up some storylines that will have major consequences for the citizens of Port Charles.

In the latest promo for the ABC daytime drama series, Hayden (Rebecca Budig) seems to reveal that the little girl in the hospital bed is Finn’s (Michael Easton) bio-child.  The little girl seen in the promo is young actress, Jophielle Love.

Elsewhere, Ryan (Jon Lindstrom) wants Ava (Maura West), what will his next move be even if he is supposedly behind bars? Ava is frightened and says she is being stalked.  She also has been sipping one too many martinis lately to calm her nerves.  Will Halloween horrors come Ava’s way?

Meanwhile, the judge is ready to rule in the competency of Franco Baldwin (Roger Howarth) who has been mind-mapped with Drew’s memories.  How will the decision impact the lives of Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), Cameron (William Lipton), Kim (Tamara Braun) and more?

Watch the promo below  Then, let us know how you think these three storylines will play out via the comment section below by sharing your theories.

Katelyn MacMullen Celebrates 1 Year Anniversary On GH; Now, What Will Happen When Willow Finds Out The Truth About Wiley?

Since Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) first appeared on the General Hospital canvas as the school teacher who needed to let Charlotte’s (Scarlett Fernandez) parents (Valentin, Nina and Lulu) know of her bullying tactic sat school, the character has become quite intertwined to others in Port Charles.

We eventually learned that Willow shared a dark past with the late Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin), and even had his child, but never told him about it.  Later, Willow seem to get the attention of two young gentlemen; Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and Harrison Chase (Josh Swickard).

Photo: ABC

As of now, Chase and Willow look to be quite the happy couple.  But, what will happen when Willow learns the devastating truth- that the little boy she gave up -that is being raised by Brad (Parry Shen) and Lucas (Ryan Carnes) isn’t really hers.  In fact, her son died when Brad took Nelle’s (Chloe Lanier) baby to replace the baby that died.

In a post on her Instagram, Katelyn MacMullen shared that it’s hard to believe a year has past since her debut on the ABC soap opera expressing gratitude: “It’s been a year since I’ve joined this incredible cast! I love this show so much, and every single person involved. I’m so grateful 🖤 It’s been a pretty crazy ride for Willow so far, and I’ve enjoyed every second of it 🌚 Thank you @generalhospitalabc !! 🙏 #GH #oneyearanniversary”
