Seems OWN is ”all” we have to put the soaps on a TV network..
Nobody wants to deal with the soaps, nobody wants them, still ..

CBS recently purchased TVGN which we can deduce prompted this move of Y&R rebroadcasts from SOAPNet to TVGN. I assume TVGN will becsome the home of CBS and CBS-produced off-network fare and reruns, and that may include CW and Showtime programming, also in the CBS family. Corporate synergy!!!

I amnot sure what SOAPNet will do. I thought that cabler was to shutter last year. I am glad for it as I can see the current soaps at night now as I enjoy them, in front of my TV. (It’s taking some getting used to to log in to watch the rebooted AMC and OLTL).

I wonder if TVGN will show B&B reruns if Y&R is successful. Or maybe even reruns of GL, ATWT, or other legacy soaps from the days when CBS was daytime’s gold standard but that my be too far back in the day anymore.

As for OWN, my cabler does not carry the web and that is OK. I remain stung that OWN could not help AMC and OLTL when the cancellations were first announced in 2011.

I am not sure who decided daytime drama was past its prime. Good storytelling never is. I keep watching and following and cheering (even when plots are bad — again, Emmy win aside, B&B, but that is another post).

GH’s Maurice Benard Memoir Available Now For Pre-Order

One of the most highly-anticipated autobiography’s, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, GH) Nothing General About It, is set for release on April 7th of 2020.  But now according to the book publisher, HarperCollins, you can pre-order your copy of the riveting real-life story of Benard now by heading on over to Amazon  to make your purchase.

According to the log lines and publisher notes: “In Nothing General About It, Maurice looks back to his youth in a small town and his tenuous relationship with his father. He describes how his bipolar disorder began to surface in childhood, how he struggled to understand the jolting mood swings he experienced, and how a doctor finally saved his life. For years Maurice was relentless in his goal to be a successful actor. But even after he “made it,” he still grappled with terrifying lows, breakdowns, and setbacks, all while trying desperately to maintain his relationship with his wife, who endured his violent, unpredictable episodes. Maurice holds nothing back as he bravely talks about what it was like to be medicated and institutionalized, and of how he learned to manage his manic episodes while on the set of GH. 

HarperCollins

Nothing General About It is also an incredible love story about an enduring marriage that demonstrates what those vows—for better, for worse, in sickness and in health—truly mean. Maurice also pays tribute to the community that has been there for him through thick and thin, and ruminates on the importance of both inherited and created family.”

RATINGS: Days of our Lives Has Strong Week

The ratings are out for the week of September 2nd through the 6th and it was NBC’s Days of our Lives that was the only daytime drama series to gain in total viewers and households.

That week featured the debut of One Life to Live icon, Robin Strasser in her debut on DAYS as Vivian Alamain replacing Louise Sorel.

DAYS topped General Hospital for the week moving into third place adding +82,000 total viewers, while GH hit a new low losing – 143,000 viewers, as well, the CBS Daytime series of The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful also lost total viewers … -189,000 and -120,000 for the ratings period.

In addition, DAYS was up +.04 in households week-to-week.   However. the show year-to-year that has continued in recent weeks to lose viewers is The Young and the Restless who from this time last year lost -453,000 viewers.

In the key demos: Y&R remained at #1 in 18-49, 18-34 and 25-54 in total viewers, but in the ratings share it tied with B&B in the 18-34 category.  Over the past few weeks, B&B has also been in the top demo slots trading off with Y&R.

With the fall season upon us and summer coming to a close, perhaps many soap viewers will be checking back in to see what is happening in the towns of Genoa City, Port Charles, Los Angeles, and Salem.
