On last night’s Chelsea Lately, host Chelsea Handler talked about Friday the 13th being the end of One Life to Live and how the entire cast was fired, and how her brother, Roy is devastated about the cancellation ( You can hear how Chelsea explained his devastation in the video clip).

Then came the part we love. Chelsea informed the audience that one of the shows that has filled the soap opera void is the cooking talk show, The Chew!  She then goes into, “Soap Opera fans turn that frown upside down because now you can enjoy entertainment like this!” Cue clip from The Chew of a rapping Daphne Oz and Carla Hall!  Hilarious.  Awful.

Watch the stand-up and then the clip from Chelsea Lately and let us know what you think of The Chew co-hosts Oz and Hall?  OMG! What has happened to our beloved daytime line-up?  It’s baffling!

Wow. The Chew might as well be called The Dumbest Show Ever. Seriously? THAT is what replaced OLTL?! Never tuning into daytime ABC ever again (except for GH– until they cancel that too!). They could at least put on decent shows in place of the soaps. I feel like I just lost brain cells from watching that clip. 🙁

ok so i wont judge a book by its cover but i decided to watch the spew (chew for you non sopers) with my grandma and it was just terrible. but congratulations abc, you’ve invented a whole new form of reality tv. its not a cooking talkshow, or a regular talk show like the view or the talk. its something so unbearible that they attempted to combine the two. if you want a cooking talk show watch rachel ray or something. but in the attempts to reinvent themselves. kudos to you abc. you have “techincaly” reinvented yourself but not in… Read more »

I tuned in the The Revolution to hear Tim Gunn tell women not to wear ‘bulky’ clothes in winter. Made no sense, changed channel. I saw the last minute of The Chew, they had bunch of people standing around a table eating. Carla Hall asked someone if the food was ‘so good it would make you slap your moma’. Perplexed looks till one of the other ladies tried to come to her rescue. WTF does that mean? ABC daytime is just so horrible now, isn’t it Michael? Frons systematically destroyed AMC but no matter how ‘bad’ that got this is… Read more »

I think it’s fitting. Just goes to show you what ABC knows and thinks about their daytime audience. They really believe that this s**t is what we want to watch? 2 shows that suck and the icing on the cake is they will be bring a washed out, used up Katie Couric to their line up come September! Katie had her 15 minutes. It must be a goal of hers to fail on all 3 major networks. ABC should just wipe the egg off their faces, admit they made a huge mistake and put our soaps back on the air.… Read more »

WOW FREAKING WOW!! Now I can SEE why The Chew is so much “cheaper” to produce than a soap. Talk about GARBAGE TV!!!! ABC has made the biggest of all blunders in cancelling long running soaps for these debacles!!! What demographic is supposed to want to watch this???? Makes me sick to think we lost our 40+ year soaps for that!! I will NEVER tune into ABC again.

Wow! ABC is the joke of all the networks! I watched AMC and OLTL for 40 plus years. I am getting better with the grief that I am watching NBC’s One Life to Live.
I hate ABC!

I love Chelsea also, dvr her talk show every night. She has talked about and shown clips of OLTL over the years so obviously someone there is a fan and watches it every day. She said she grew up watching soaps so maybe OLTL was one of them.
Go Chelsea!

OK – My decision stands! I will NEVER watch the spawns of Frons!! There are no words to describe that clip!!

It seems to defy rational explanation. Perhaps ABC has a secret government research contract to investigate just how low American IQs are that anybody would watch this. Or maybe ABC sold its soul to the devil and asked for a higher share price in exchange for destroying daytime television. Or ABC is stupid enough to think most viewers are stupid because executives actually thought someone might watch the primetime comedy Work It.

Really sad. However, I thought Handler’s monologue and that clip were hilarious! Carla Hall making a complete fool of herself, followed with Hander remarking “Happy Martin Luther King Day!”

The whole thing is unfortunate.

Cute clip. As for ABC, they want to save money. Well, guess they never heard the old saying about getting what you pay for, right? They used to spend money and had 43 years of devoted fans. Now they don’t want to spend a dollar. What do they have?? Garbage television that nobody will watch and soon no sponspor will want to spend their money on either. I bet CBS and NBC is loving every minute of this.

Never watched the spew and never will. Same goes for the revulsion. Hear that ABC.

TODAY: B&B’s Sean Kanan Visits ‘The Talk’

Friday on CBS’ The Talk, Sean Kanan (Deacon Sharpe, The Bold and the Beautiful) is one of the afternoon series special guests, and will discuss and preview the continuation of the crossover story arc that finds Deacon in drama with Y&R and Genoa City’s Nikki Newman.

Next week, Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki) comes to B&B as she tries to get dirt on Diane (Susan Walters) and wastes no time in telling Deacon he has to help her with her revenge plot.  After all, Deacon helped frame Nikki to look like she murdered Diane many years ago.

Kanan weighed-in on Deacon’s motives in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, sharing: “He actually wants to help Nikki.  Deep down, I think Deacon is more of a good person than a bad person.  He’s a guy who wants to do the right thing be he’s got issues.”

Tune in today for The Talk at 2pm ET / 1pm PT on CBS and Paramount Plus as Kanan reveals more of what’s to come with the show co-hosts: Akbar Gbajabiamila, Amanda Kloots, Jerry O’Connell, Sheryl Underwood and Natalie Morales.

In addition, Morales may have a thing or two to add to Kanan’s visit, since she has been making appearances on Y&R playing ace reporter, Talia Morgan, who has been investigating Diane Jenkins.

Looking forward to seeing Sean on ‘The Talk’? Will you be watching next week for the crossover to continue with Sean and Melody Thomas Scott in scenes on B&B? Comment below.

Elizabeth Gillies First Post-‘Dynasty’ Role Revealed; GH Alum Bryan Craig Also In Cast

Now that the CW’s Dynasty has come to its conclusion after five seasons, many have wondered what series star Elizabeth Gillies (ex-Fallon) will be seen in next.  Part of the answer was revealed today in casting news via Deadline.

Gillies will star and is the co-executive producer of a new Tubi film called Spread.  In it, Liz will take on the role of  ambitious and aspiring journalist, who lands a temp job at an adult magazine run by an aging industry king played by Harvey Keitel.  The character must reconcile her idealism as she strives to help the company succeed.

Spread is written by Buffy Charlet, who is another of the films Co-EP’s, and is inspired by Charlet’s real-life experience as a temp at Hustler magazine who rose in the ranks to become an editor.

The film also stars two-time Daytime Emmy winner Bryan Craig (ex-General Hospital, Good Trouble).

Look for Spread to drop on Tubi in 2023.

So, intrigued to see Liz and Bryan in Tubi’s new film, ‘Spread’? Comment below.

Days Of Our Lives

‘NBC News Daily’ Hits Rock Bottom In Ratings Premiere Week

While networks have seen a collective erosion over the years of the soap opera viewing audience, they are still the most loyal and fierce of any entertainment genre.

With NBC’s decision to take Days of our Lives off of the network after nearly 57 years, and replace it with another daytime news program, they would surely have a rocky road ahead of them to capture viewers in that time slot; especially now that DAYS was moved exclusively to NBCUniversal’s streaming platform, Peacock.

Nothing was more proof positive of that, than the first week ratings and performance of NBC News Daily.

The news show which premiered on Monday, September 12th came in last for the ratings period of all daytime shows for the week.

According to SON: NBC News Daily averaged 935,000 viewers, was last among Total Viewers and last in the key demo ratings: Women 18-49 (tie) and Women 25-54.

In comparison to DAYS last week on NBC, and a year ago, NBC News Daily was down -744,000 and -762,000 viewers, respectively.

NBC News Daily features the latest national and international news, plus consumer, health, and personal finance segments and is hosted by Kate Snow, Aaron Gilchrist, Morgan Redford and Vicky Nguyen.

So, will ‘NBC News Daily’ find itself facing the same fate as ABC’s defunct ‘Revolution’, which replaced One Life to Live, and lasted only six months, or will the news program somehow turn a ratings corner? Does NBC really care one way or the other? Share your thoughts below.
