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.

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.

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… Read more »

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.

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.

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.

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.

Kim Delaney’s Lifetime Movie ‘Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice’ Drops Trailer

Coming up as part of Lifetime’s Ripped from the Headlines true crime series of movies, The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice, is now slated to premiere next month on February 20th at 8 pm ET.

General Hospital’s Kim Delaney (Jackie Templeton) stars in the film, executive produced by Deborah Norville. in which she portrays, Mari Gilbert, a mother who becomes alarmed when her daughter Shannan (Katharine Isabelle) is MIA and doesn’t return home. Knowing her daughter sometimes works as an escort, Mari fears the worst.

As those who know the true life story, Mari’s attempt to find her daughter and the subsequent investigation leads to a chilling discovery – the bodies of several other missing women.

In the real life story, the remains of the women were uncovered accidentally as police searched for Shannan, who went missing after visiting a client, whom she met on Craigslist, in the gated community of Oak Beach on Long Island, and then fleeing the man’s home.   However, police believe that Mari’s unwavering fight to find her daughter which led to finding the other women is not how Shannan ultimately disappeared.

While the case has yet to be solved the film shares, “Though the search for the serial killer is still ongoing, Mari’s passionate dedication to giving her daughter and other forgotten women a voice, and the attention they deserve, has kept the case alive with hopes of a breakthrough soon.”

PEOPLE exclusively dropped the trailer over the weekend.  Make sure to check it out.

Once the trailer was released, Delaney shared on her Twitter account: “Amazing director @StanleyMBrooks Thank you so much, Stan!Very special producers, cast and crew. An important story!”

So will you be watching Kim in her star turn in the upcoming Lifetime movie event? Comment below.

Mark Consuelos on the All My Children Primetime Reboot: “I Know They’re Going to Bring Back Some Fan Favorites”

On Friday, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) was a guest on the CBS afternoon series, The Talk, where he shared his excitement and some insight into the upcoming All My Children primetime reboot, Pine Valley, in development at ABC..

As previously reported, Mark and his wife Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley, AMC) are two of the executive producers on the project.

Consuelos shared on the reboot:All My Children was such a big part of my life and my wife’s life. And you know, I met my wife there obviously, had kids, became a young man on that show, and we got the opportunity to reboot the primetime version and the idea was brought to us, and we’re so excited.  Of all the things that we’ve ever announced that we’re going to do, this is one of the biggest responses we’ve got from our fans. They’re so excited.  It’s a big piece of TV that’s been missing for such a long time, and we’re going to bring it back.”

When avid soap fan and The Talk co-host, Sheryl Underwood, posed a major question to Consuelos that has been on longtime All My Children fans minds, she got a solid response from him.

Sheryl was trying to get some tea on who might appear in the reboot, when she asked, “Is it going to be the Cortlandts and the Warners? Is it going to be everybody?” Consuelos then responded with: “I know they’re going to bring back some fan favorites, and it will take place in Pine Valley, and I’m really, really excited.”

You can watch a portion of Mark’s virtual visit on The Talk below.

Then let us know, which AMC characters do you want to see back and on the primetime series, Pine Valley?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

General Hospital

Lexi Ainsworth Teases Her Return to General Hospital

With her father Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) presumed dead (although viewers know he is very much alive with amnesia), it looks like Kristina is on her way back to Port Charles – which would be a welcome return to the role for Daytime Emmy winner Lexi Ainsworth.

Rumors began circulating on Inauguration day Wednesday, when Ainsworth shared a pic on her Instagram Story of her watching the ceremonies from a dressing room at Prospect Studios in Los Angeles, where GH is taped.

Later, after reports had surfaced on social media that Ainsworth might be returning to her signature role, the actress shared some of those on her Instagram Story as well, which was seen as her way of confirming she is back on the show.

Lexi has been recurring on General Hospital for the last several years, so there is no telling how long she will be on-screen this time.

While there has been no official confirmation from GH, chances are that if there is a funeral ahead for Sonny, Kristina of course would be there to mourn her father. Stay tuned.

So, excited that Lexi will be back on-air on GH? Comment below.
