The Young and the Restless’ Christel Khalil (Lily Winters Ashby), who is now on recurring status with the CBS Daytime drama series, has landed a key role in an upcoming indie feature film, We Need To Talk.

In the comedy/drama, Khalil will play the role of Aly Fulton.  The feature is written and directed by Todd Wolfe with production slated to begin at the end on the month. The film stars Emily Bett Rickards (Arrow) and James Maslow (Big Time Rush, Dancing with the Stars) and will soon be co-hosting CW’s new talent show The Big Stage.

According to Deadline the film’s plot follows “a self-centered, video-gaming celebrity, Great Scott Gamer (Maslow) who speaks with millions of fans every day but doesn’t know how to talk to the people he loves.  It isn’t a problem until his girlfriend says, ‘We need to talk’, before disappearing to work.  Scott frantically spends the rest of the day on a wild goose chase trying to figure out what she wants to talk about and following awful advice from friends, fans and social media trolls. On top of it all, Scott is under immense pressure to review a popular video game franchise that he’s just not that into.”

Good luck to Ms. Khalil. I cringed every time one of her “kids” called her mom. She was so wasted as Cane’s wife. He is such a stuffed shirt, and the way he was always jumping her, made me sick. Now poor Traci is having romantic thoughts about him, yuk, yuk and yuk!

Impeachment Hearings On Broadcast Networks Show Ratings Much Lower Than The Daytime Soap Operas They Are Preempting

In an infuriating article written by FOX news, off of a study from NewsBusters, the news outlet and others have come to the realization that all of us who want our soaps back on the air already know.  That is … that the network daytime dramas ratings are far better on a day-to-day basis than people tuning into network TV during the day to watch the impeachment hearings of Donald Trump.

Soap fans have been furious that in the afternoon network TV is pulling their soaps off their normal airtime across all coasts.  Daytime soap viewers feel that all of the 24-hour news cable outlets should be the the place to go to see the hearings during the day; as to not to preempt the drama on General Hospital, Days of our Lives, The Young and the Restless, and The Bold and the Beautiful.

Just for the record, the study via NewsBusters showed that on day one of the impeachment hearing the networks scored as such: CBS averaged 1.52 million, ABC  1.29 million viewers, and NBC averaged 1.26 million viewers.   Thursday’s were even worse with CBS averaging 1.4 million, ABC 1.2 million viewers and NBC had 1.1 million viewers.

Now compare that to the weekly daytime soap ratings and total viewers which while it ebbs and slows is still way about this.  According to the study: “The Young & The Restless” has been averaging 3.7 million viewers during the 2019-2020 season and The Bold & The Beautiful averages 3.15 million viewers. ABC’s General Hospital averages 2.15 million viewers while NBC’s Days of Our Lives averages 1.95 million viewers.”

Share your thoughts on the pre=emptions of your favorite soaps, and how the impeachment hearings are, of course, not bringing in higher number in the day-part via the comment section below.

General Hospital Releases Extended Promo “We Have To Lean Into Hope”

As the ABC daytime drama series, General Hospital, continues to be preempted by the impeachment hearings of President Donald Trump, and episodes are not being made available on any other platform at this time, two videos were posted in last 24 hours to the official General Hospital social media accounts.

To tide you over (while you are clamoring for all-new episodes of GH) the soap released an extended promo featuring the folks in Port Charles filled with lots of joy, hope, and love.  It’s main message, “We have to lean into hope” – as the series tells us to “sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride.”

Take a look at some of the reunions, hugs, and special moments featuring the Q’s, Corinthos, Cassadine and other clans in the promo below.

In addition, Finola Hughes (Anna) and Michael Easton (Finn) along with Jophielle Love (Violet) were featured in another video, where the key messaging to fans is that they are currently taping all-new episodes of GH, and that viewers should keep tuned ans posted to GH’s social channels for updates on when new episodes of GH will return.

As of late, GH has been on the upswing in the ratings, too.  So, it’s always frustrating for everyone when weeks of preemptions hit the daytime viewers  experience to enjoy the on-going stories of the soaps.

‘Ambitions’ Canceled By OWN After One Season

After an excellent first season of drama and backstabbing, the soapy nighttime Ambitions has been canceled by OWN.

The cable outlet offered up this statement from OWN President, Tina Perry: “We’re thankful to Will Packer, Jamey Giddens and the entire cast and crew of Ambitions for their creativity and hard work on the show. Every week they delivered great drama, intrigue and a lot of fun storytelling.  We look forward to continue working with Will Packer and his talented team of collaborators in the future.”

The series which starred Robin Givens as Stephanie Lancaster Carlisle was hailed as a multigenerational family saga centered around classic soap character, Stephanie, who finds herself going head to head with some of the most powerful and deceitful players in the city of Atlanta and we learn she can play deceitful like nobody’s business … too!

Ambitions was produced by Will Packer Media in association with Lionsgate and Lionsgate-owned distributor Debmar-Mercury. Packer was executive producer. Arkadie was executive producer/showrunner. Writer Jamey Giddens and Will Packer Media’s Sheila Ducksworth also served as executive producers.

Givens took to Instagram and shared her disappointment on the cancellation. “mood 🙁 found out last week #Ambitions wouldn’t be returning for a second season ….”
