CBS has picked the replacement for departing daytime soap As the World Turns: a daily panel talk show hosted by Sara Gilbert, on whose idea the show is based, Julie Chen, Holly Robinson Peete, Sharon Osbourne and Leah Remini that focuses on topical events through the eyes of moms.

This item was broken exclusively by Nellie Adreeva at Deadline Hollywood.    According to the post, “The pilot, executive produced by Tom Forman (Extreme Makeover: Home Edition), John Redmann (The Tyra Banks Show) and Gilbert, was one of several CBS ordered for the ATWT timeslot, along with a Pyramid reboot hosted by Andy Richter and a cooking game show starring Emeril Lagasse. The View-type female-oriented talk show screened very well at the network and had been the clear frontrunner.”  The new talkfest has a tentative October launch.   The talk show will be filmed in Los Angeles where Chen also co-hosts CBS’ Early Show year-round as well as the network’s reality series Big Brother in the summer.

Rob, thank you brotha (I’m black by the way). I flat out agree with you. Can you believe that Sara Gilbert actually pitched this idea to CBS? She’s already on HawthoRNe and she still gets paid for Roseanne when it’s in syndication. These ladies already make enough money for what they do. Good Lord. They rejected Pyramid and an Emeril Lagasse-hosted game show. What da matter, Les Moonves? Too chicken to get a game show on the block? (clucks like a chicken) Geez, man.

Cudos to ya’ll! Julie, what is going on with your wardrobe? Seriously why are you allowing this. You are an incredibly beautiful woman whom always looks amazingly beautiful and you are coming on this show dressing like my mother. Whom ever dressed you for BB, should be your wardrobe girl or guy for The Talk! Ya’ll should listen to Sharon O. as she is spot on. Our kids grow up inspite of us. Learned that the hard way, but Sharon is right. Keeps thoses babies loved and fed, keep them close to you even in bed. It brings comfort and joy ans security to them and you. When all the kids were coming in, before I would go to sleep I would lay down thick duets and pillows and blackets and as they got older, like 4,5, etc. they come in and sleep in our room on the make shift bed. It will keep them close to you and that bond it brings, not to mention trust. Leah has it right too!!!! Sara, hate to brerak this to you but with all your great intentions, your kids will go off to school and come home being people you won’t reconize. I sent 3 sweet little angels to kindergarden and when these sweet angels came home each day, they shared with me things and words that schocked even me. I lived under the code of hhhmmmm where did i go wrong, then a close friend of mine said to me, ” This too shall pass “….and it did……my advice is to hold on tight and enjoy the ride. Yes, I said enjoy the ride even if you don’t like it. I learned to late to just sit back and watch, but when i did. It was all ok. really ok. and like Sharon I have 3 amazingly loving, secure and kind and sucessful adult children. This I am so greatful for., and blessed. Holly lighten up, You teach the kids well, give them all the tools they need for life then stand back and watch them work. Ten or so yrs. from now they will be your best friends. You always seem so worried about them. One day not so long from now you and hubby will be patting eachother on the backs saying what a great job ya’ll did in raising them. Ok, he will take all the credit, but that’s life. We will all know it was you;-) Your show is great, but PLEASE JULIE, please no more Brenchel, had way more then enough of them playing for the camera. It’s become sickening! Julie, please push for a winter season of BB. 1x a year of bb is just not enough! Good luck ladies ya’ll are great and the show, well could be better. I watched only because of Julie. Then I liked all ya”ll. Leah, never change you are amazing! Sharon teach these ladies, you are a hero in life, in general. A major inspriation and a saint,… Read more »

See it pays to sleep with the boss, show #3 for Julie Chen. I said the people over at ATWT should of put her on a contract role & they (Moonves) wouldn’t of canceled the show.

I totally agree with you. How pathetic. I even read an article where Les Moonves said that ATWT wasn’t special enough to be saved. Well I can tell you that his wife’s show “The Talk” is not going to be special enough to be saved either. I will not watch even one episode. To CBS, P&G and anyone else involved with cancelling ATWT I will be through with your shows and products as of Sept. 17. You definitely didn’t give a d**n about the true and loyal fans. 🙁

I’m not liking that he said ATWT wasn’t special enough to be saved! It was special enough to last 54 years….Let’s see if this talk show lasts 54 days! I seriously doubt it!

Good luck you are all beautiful and bright one more thing dont ley it become ghetto I no longer watch Oprah the last year or so when she decided to talk as if she was an uneducated street person and I am sure its not only me that feels like that .

The comment about covering her arms for TV was useful and may not be entirely bad: It shows others that they can make progress, too, it gives hope. Like an alcoholic with years of sobriety is encouraging to newcomers to AA. It can be done, I’m here with you for this journey is the message

Don’t care for the choice of women on this show. Holly Robinson Peete can’t even sit like a lady on the couch! Please give her lessons on how to sit like a lady. And Sharon Osborne, give me a break, enough is enough of her. Bottom line…not impressed.

I love your show, always tape it so i don’t miss it. it beats “the view” I don’t see the logic in some of the answers you have but Sharon is the best! today on marriage, I don’t know why yall find it hard to maintain a good marriage. We just celebrated our 53rd yr. anniversary. I was 18 when we married, had a very hard life as self employed people. I never worked outside the home till my last was in highschool and then I went back to school got a job, worked ten yrs and then we started a new life involving travel. I had a misscarriage, had a daughter loose an arm in an accident at nine yrs old. have six living children and 17 grandchildren and seven great grands. oh ya, on the sub. of sex, my hubby is 76 and still can’t get enough and I have never said “no I have a headache! ” I do not want my name mentioned if you do talk about this, other than that I don’t mind. Life is good, don’t see why there are so many divorces, I think it is because of living together befor marraige and no we did not have sex befor we said I do, thats important.

Re school districts and educational quality, there has been public national attention re our Wake Cty (Raleigh area)schools. Bussing to provide quality education re neighborhood schools has brought in a retired military man as Bd of Ed chmn. How can we help the Ohio woman who is really being persecuted! When bussing stops here it means resegregation..I am 85 and glad to be old! We made the national comic shows with this dilema! Your opinion?

Have been watching your show and enjoy it every day–except today — I was greatly disappointed when you gave Obama all the credit regarding the raid on Bin Ladin, It was not a one man show, the past President played a very large part . But most of all Our Military did what was needed so Please don’t make it sound like Obama rode over on a white horse and took care of America- Your Show is Great the way it is, It’s Light and Fun with some real heart felt subjects- Please don’t taint it with Politics..We get plenty of that….

Please ladies. I read one ladies comment about ATWT being on air for 54 years and how she would not watch an episode of Let’s Talk. Well lady all I have to say is “GET A LIFE!” . 54 years of a soap is way to much. That is all fantasy and for some reason you all buy into it as if it were reality. I find it ridiculous that as a grown women you would not have enough of a life to move the heck on. BTW! Anything with Sharon Osborne is great. She is a lady of class and is well respected which is a lot more than I can say for the bubble gum actors in the soaps if actor is a word that can be used for them. UGH!

This show needs to be cancelled regardless of trying to raise ratings by bringing on high visibility celebrity’s
The mediocrity of the hosts is prevelant and the show is boring. I watched it the first season and I really thought it should have been cancelled then. It has gone from mediocrity to down right hopeless. Please take it ff the air unless you get rid of all the host and start over again.

According to the report: “Zach was busted Sunday around 2:30 AM in Montpelier, Ohio. Police tell us, officers noticed Zach’s pickup truck did not have a front license plate, so they pulled him over.”

Apparently when the officer went up to the driver’s side window they noticed that Zach’s slurred speech, bloodshot eyes and say he, “reeked of booze”.

Roerig was arrested for  for a misdemeanor and was held overnight in a holding cell.  He was later released.

ABC and PEOPLE’s ‘The Story of Soaps’: What Was Your Review Of It?

Tuesday’s night airing of ABC and PEOPLE’s two-hour special The Story of Soaps featured many notable daytime and primetime soap stars, past and present, clips from backstage to classic memorable moments, and some participants who were providing commentary on the erosion of the daytime soaps in our culture.  Still others, maintained and realized that everything today is serialized from the news we watch, to some of Netflix’s most binge-watchable series, and of course, the birth of reality-programming.

Throughout the airing of the special, The Story of Soaps was trending on Twitter and social media either at the #2, #3 or #4 spots for the entire duration of the broadcast presentation, and the cancelled and beloved All My Children was also at one point trending.

However, known soap writers, journalists, ardent fans, and actors of the genre, were all on Twitter last night live-tweeting their thoughts as the special went down, and there was definitely mixed reactions and reviews, when all was said and done.

What the special did not shy away from, but tackled, was Luke’s rape of Laura at the campus disco on General Hospital. and how that moment now, as Genie Francis (Laura), so eloquently put, would be considered as ‘date rape’ in our culture.  The series even included a pivotal moment where Laura addresses Luke (Tony Geary) about the rape years later, after helping Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) through her rape ordeal.

John Stamos (Ex-Blackie Parrish, GH) got a bevy of “Right On’s!” for his comment that the soaps do not get the credit that they deserve and clearly came through as one of the soaps greatest supporters, as did former The Doctors and Knots Landing star, Alec Baldwin.

However, throughout the two-hours, Andy Cohen’s commentary was thread throughout; mostly citing soap’s demise and the creation of reality-programming and his “Real Housewives” franchise, that the special touted as the new soap operas.  It continued on the narrative that people preferred to see real-life drama then made-up drama on a fictional soap.  And while, that has been a trend in American culture for decades, the commentary came off as often out of place in a celebration of the soaps; and bringing in a lot of negativity to the special that soap fans were tired of hearing.

In a lighting rod moment, Cohen stated: “I know Susan Lucci doesn’t agree with me, but I think that the Housewives have replaced soap operas because truth is stranger than fiction. Soaps became kind of unnecessary because you could do it with real people, and they’re writing the drama themselves.”

The special did also address the cancellations of All My Children and One Life to Live, (which many were not sure they were going to do – given this special was airing on ABC), where One Life’s leading lady and six-time Daytime Emmy winner, Erika Slezak (Ex-Viki) said what we all wanted to sa ywhen the ax fell on the towns of Llanview and Pine Valley, “People were horrified”.

Clearly, OJ Simpson and his murder trial and reality-programming were also given a chunk of time to show where the once mighty landscape of daytime soaps which once had 13 shows on the air, dwindled town to 4.  But, it would have been nice to see more time spent on how in this day and age, the people in this current landscape of the genre work so hard to get episodes done at an unbelievable pace, and how in that climate the performers still deliver gut-wrenching performances.

Former Loving, OLTL and Breaking Bad star, Bryan Cranston, did point out how the once powerful soaps, just don’t have the dollars they used to, and need to, to help with production costs and their taping schedule.

Viewers were reminded of soaps’ socially relevant storylines including hankie-inducing moments from: Robin (Kimberly McCullough) and Stone’s (Michael Sutton) HIV/AIDS storyline on General Hospital, to Billy Douglas being a gay teen coming out on One Life to Live, played by a young Ryan Phillippe.

There also did not seem time spent on the contributions of William J. Bell; one of the most prominent writers of the soap genre of all-time.

For many commenting on social media last night, there seemed to be a feeling of some glaring omissions of participants who could speak on this genre, who have been in the trenches as soap producers, soap writers, pundits, actors, and more, who were not included in the special.

So, what was your review of The Story of Soaps? How would you grade it? Do you feel it accurately reflected the history of the genre?  Were you happily surprised,  or when it came to the end where you over it, or somewhere in between? Sound off in the comment section below.  Below are some tweets from notables who have worked as an actor, a writer, and a journalist in the soaps.
