You know what is really a shame is that Christian le Blanc has been wasted for three years on Y&R. Watching this is a hoot and he has been a good sport just like Jess Walton. I wonder what he did to MAB to make her not write for him all he does is carry a briefcase and be Victors errand boy. I am afraid the wedding is Victor & Sharon.

I have never watched one minute of the loud, silly Talk. Even the promos for it are irritating. Who cares? My tv goes immediately to ABC right after B&B, then I have to mute it while they finish up with the equally irritating, loud Chew. But come January 16 my tv will be switched off after B&B.

LeBlanc is a class guy, I think. Again, ATWT and GL were not good enough to save and to nurture, but the webs will use the genre to bring attention to the replacement, the vapid THE TALK! Oh dear.

seriously, a ‘surprise” lol, okayyy, this is just simple cross promotion, the talk,& the young and the restless, are both cbs shows, the wife of the guy who runs the network is one of the host. both show are just using one another and as for sheryl being surprise, well if you bought her overacting then your the only one surprise. this is just another stunt casting , and nothing more, nothing less.

I don’t watch the talk, so I really don’t know Sheryl. But, I will have to watch her because I’m a big Y&R fan. The guess of whose wedding is a different story. It will probably be Victor and Sharon. That’s bad enough! Hate that story line…….

I love Michael in any capacity. Now… can we get done with the who dun it, the ridiculous ganster and daughter show, lets get to real meaty stories that are real to us, not this foolish, never in a lifetime gonna happen situations. Chloe acts like a dingbat and she used to be city suave, Victoria shows no education or backbone anymore and she should be working and doing something besides crying and peleeeeeze, someone do something with her hair, its the worst on tv. She is gorgeous, bring back the classy smart business woman. What the heck with cat woman, get rid of her, its just a ruse to get the other who dun it story out of the way without harming the main players, but one of them should be the killer and no one will know but us. Give nick a job and a reason to be around instead of just jumping any gal in town, he has no smarts. I hate to say it but Adam shines, he is smart and realistic. Daniel, a waste and Kevin needs to grow a couple. No more Daisy, preggies, babies, lets get some reality into this before this show hits the skids too.

All I can say is that you are sooooo right. I love Vicky and Billy together, I know TPTB think it will be boring if they are together, but what about giving them a great story together, maybe searching for something, doing PI work together, something fun and romantic. I agree Vicky should work too, I’m sick of all the babyline stories. I’m just sick of what has become of Daniel, another wasted character. I still watch it, but I’m really getting bored with it. They need a giant change like Days of Our Lives has done.

Here we go again with CBS trying to cross promote another soap opera replacement. Not going to get me to watch the Talk, ever.

More talk shows are coming daytime viewers way come the fall with the announcement of the premiere date for The Masked Singer host, Nick Cannon’s daytime talk show, titled aptly, Nick Cannon.

The company behind the upcoming nationally syndicated series, Debmar-Mercury, says the new show will bow on September 21 and has been cleared in more than 90% of markets in the United States.

According to Deadline: “Cannon’s production company, Ncredible Entertainment, and Debmar-Mercury will co-produce the talker featuring his take on the latest in trending pop culture stories and celebrity interviews.”

Ira Bernstein and Mort Marcus, co-presidents of Debmar-Mercury, said,  “Our great station partners are hungry for a rising, versatile and dynamic talent like Nick. His light-hearted style quickly wins over viewers and gives them a much-needed escape from the world.  We’ve been asked why we skipped doing test shows and explained there was no need. It’s obvious to anyone who watched Nick guest host for Wendy Williams last year how much he loves daytime talk and, based on the reaction of fans, how much they love him.”

Cannon added: “It’s been thrilling going through this process, and to see the widespread support that the show has received and the milestones we’ve achieved is mind blowing, We’re gearing up to deliver a must-see show and I’m looking forward to coming to you on your TV this fall.”

‘Edge of Night’ Mainstay Forrest Compton Dies Following Complications From COVID-19

Sad news to report this Monday.  The longtime star of CBS’ and then ABC’s The Edge of Night, Forrest Compton. has passed away due to complications from COVID-19. Forrest died on Sunday at the age of 94.

His death was reported and confirmed by Compton’s friends and an article in the Shelter Island Reporter.

As Edge of Night and longtime daytime fans know, Forrest played Monticello’s district attorney, Mike Karr.  He played this key role from 1971 until the show’s cancellation in 1984.  The show was originally titled “The Edge of Night” and eventually just became “Edge of Night”.   The soap which was steeped in murder mysteries ran on CBS from 1956–1975 and on ABC from 1975–1984,   In addition, Forrest along with his on-screen wife, Ann Flood (Nancy Karr) were one of the most popular duos in daytime.

Not only did Compton appear on EON, but he also had soap roles on As the World Turns, One Life to Live and All My Children.   In primetime, Forrest was best known for his role on Gomer Pyle: USMC opposite  Jim Nabors and Frank Sutton as Lieutenant Colonel Edward Gray.

In a heartwarming story where fan meets actor and helps him out (according to the Shelter Island Reporter) Compton was only slated to appear in two episodes a week for the next 13 weeks on The Edge of Night, when he needed an apartment in New York City near the studio, so when he heard about a one-bedroom on East 72nd he went to see Al, the super.  Forrest later learned that Al was such a devotee of  The Edge of Night that he locked his office door every day at 2 p.m. to watch uninterrupted. When Forrest mentioned that he had just been hired to play Mike Karr, the super said, “You’re getting that apartment.”’

Sharon Gabet who starred as Raven on Edge of Night, posted on Facebook, a tribute and remembrance of her former co-star: “Woody, as he was affectionately known to all of us on The Edge of Night, was a master professional, hilarious, smart, kind and gentle. I spoke with him a couple years ago on his birthday and he was active and happy in his retirement. Rest in peace, Woody, and give hugs and kisses to Larkin, Lois, Dennis, Nick, Joel, Irving and all the other EDGE alumni up there.  THE story about Woody. He was on EON when they were LIVE. It was brutal, but Woody was one of the best “straight face” men in the business. So he is doing a scene with Nancy his wife (the glorious Ann Flood – another “straight face” master). He walks in the kitchen and sits down and his line was supposed to be “Gee, it’s hard to get up in the morning.” as Nancy gave him his coffee. Instead, Mike Karr says on national TV, “Gee it’s hard to get IT up in the morning, Nancy.” There was pandemonium among the crew during the commercial break as you can imagine.”

Now below, watch the opening title sequence fro the The Edge of Night over the years, many of which feature Forrest as Mike Karr at the very opening or at the end as one of the series most well-known and beloved characters.

Robert Newman Shares Why There Has Not Been a Return to Springfield & ‘Guiding Light’ On-Screen Reunion

Robert Newman, best known to daytime soap fans as Josh Lewis on Guiding Light, sat down earlier this week for a wide-ranging interview on his career with Lauren Van Hemert via her You Tube Channel.

The timing of the posting of the interview as in-line with the date GL was officially canceled back on April 1, 2009.  The series began its historic run on TV from radio back on June 30, 1952, and ultimately aired its final episode on September 18, 2009.

From 1980 to 2009, Robert was one of the mainstays and key leading men of Springfield, and of course, the Josh and Reva (Kim Zimmer) love story is one of the most popular ever in the annals of daytime drama.

Right off at the top of the interview; Hemert noted that what she was asked most by fans of Newman’s and GL’s, when and if there will ever be a Guiding Light on-screen reunion.

Newman responded to the question: “I get that a lot.  That question is unfortunately in the hands of Procter and Gamble more than anything else … and they made it very clear over the years that they’re just not going to release the characters and copyrights to the show.”

Robert also added, “In terms of what you are talking about where there might be some sort of production, where there’s an actual reunion, and we see where Josh and Reva are today and that kind of thing (on their probably 15th marriage) … unless Procter and Gamble is somehow willing to shake loose the rights to the show, I don’t see it happening.”

Watch the full interview with the talented Mr. Newman below.

Then let us know, since P&G has made it very clear for the last several years they are out of the soap business completely, do you think its time they just sell the rights so viewers can see some sort of reboot down the line, especially for a show as beloved as Guiding Light? Comment below.
