News out of Variety, has that CBS News anchor, Katie Couric maybe headed to ABC Daytime with her own network talk show, which then potentially could replace one of the soaps in the line-up!  As many are aware there are continuous rumors that either One Life to Live or All My Children is on the chopping block, as the network looks to “freshen-up” their day-part programming.

Variety said,  “The speculation about Katie Couric’s future yak show plans has centered on her cutting a syndication deal. But sources indicate there’s a strong chance that ABC will put a network daytime slot on the table when the bidding for Couric begins in earnest as she sets her segue from The CBS Evening News. It’s no secret that ABC intends to pare down its three-hour slate of daytime sudsers (All My Children, General Hospital and One Life to Live) in the coming years. A Couric show could be a high-profile transition for the Alphabet in one of the time slots now occupied by its decades-old serials.

ABC’s selling point might be the stability of a uniform network timeslot and the fact that its O&O and affiliate stations tend to be stronger in daytime than its rivals — particularly the NBC O&Os. On the other hand, a network show could not offer the same kind of potential windfall of a first-run syndie strip, which in success can be a license to print money (just ask Oprah).”

ABC already has the view. People don’t watch Couric on evening news why would we watch her on a talk show. I am sick of talk shows. I want to be entertained. Not given more talking heads who think their opinions are so valuable.

There is no way I would watch couric doing anything daytime or nighttime…she is full of herself…and way overrated. I agree if they put her on and replace the soaps, I will never watch ABC again, that includes nighttime too.

What is wrong with the network brass at ABC?!!!! I like Katie Couric, but like Sondra said, if people are not watching her on CBS News, what makes them think they she will be watched during the daytime hours? Leave the daytime schedule as is. Stop rotating writers from cancelled soaps and GIVE THE VIEWERS WHAT THEY WANT!!!

I have no desire to see or hear Katie Couric during the daytime let alone anytime. Why does she think people want to chow down on their lunch with her? All My Children recently made a costly move to LA, why she thinks its ok to dump them is beyond understanding. Oh thats right shes getting the heave ho, so shes going after someone else…sounds just like her.

B&B’s Katherine Kelly Lang and Ashley Jones Reveal They Want Brooke & Bridget To Deal with Their Shared Past with Deacon

Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) of The Bold and the Beautiful was last Friday’s guest on BOLD Live, and during her interview with B&B supervising producer and host, Casey Kasprzyk, none other than Ashley Jones (Bridget) made a surprise appearance.

Once Jones arrived on the livestream (late in the episode), the discussion turned to wishing that Brooke and Bridget would get the opportunity to deal with the fallout from years ago between mother and daughter.

If fans recall, Bridget was married to Deacon (Sean Kanan), and then he had an affair with Brooke, and then Brooke became pregnant with Hope.

On BOLD Live, Lang said, “There is so much good story there.”  She then added, “I honestly feel Brooke and Bridget never dealt with that. It’s honestly something that was pushed down.”

Ashley shared on the current state of B&B’s episodes: “This is the juiciest the shows been in a long time.”  And on Brooke/Deacon/Bridget, Ashley concurred with Kelly: “Oh. 100% … they never dealt with it.”

Watch BOLD Live with Katherine Kelly Lang and special guest Ashley Jones below.
