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).

On Tuesday, The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) and its Board of Trustees announced Adam Sharp, former Head of News, Government and Elections at Twitter, has been appointed President & CEO of the organization.

“Adam Sharp’s story is truly a unique story of success,” said Terry O’Reilly, Chairman, NATAS. “Adam’s career in media began when he was awarded one of our very first National Scholarships, in 1996.  In the two-plus decades that have passed – through Adam’s years with NBC News and C-SPAN, his tenure as Deputy Chief of Staff for U.S. Senator Mary L. Landrieu (D-LA), and his role as Head of News, Government and Elections at Twitter – Adam developed the personal and professional acumen that makes him the ideal candidate to guide our iconic organization. I couldn’t be more pleased by his appointment.”

REPORT: Tony Morina and Josh Griffith IN As New Y&R EP and Head Writer?

Now that Mal Young is out at the number-one soap opera, that left the executive producer and head writer positions open.  But according to a report from Daytime Confidential, Y&R has replaced Young with two veterans of the soap genre.

First, the report says the new EP will be Anthony “Tony” Morina who has been with Y&R since 2004.  Morina has also produced and worked on Santa Barbara, Sunset Beach, Port CharlesGeneral Hospital and All My Children.

Second, Josh Griffith (Pictured here) will take over the head writing duties.  As many know, Griffith had been with Y&R several times in soap career.  He was Co-EP from 2006-2008, and named head writer two other times in 2007-2008 and 2012-2013.

Y&R has had several changes at the top now over the last few years:  Mal Young took over from when Sally Sussman and Kay Alden departed, and their tenure was short lived.

So, how do you think Y&R will look and feel under this new regime if confirmed? Who would you like to see come back to Genoa City and exit Genoa City? Comment below.

Mal Young Exits As Executive Producer and Head Writer At The Young and the Restless

As many had predicted, Mal Young is gone from The Young and the Restless as the series executive producer and head writer.

Young confirmed his departure from the show via ShowBiz411.com with a statement “Just arrived in London for the holidays. I felt like it was a good time to move on. Never a good idea to get too settled on a long running soap and I achieved all that I and CBS set out to do: improved scripts and production values. I have a project of my own that I’ve been developing and want to pursue that now. Plus running a show like this is all consuming and want to get a bit of my life back – and see my family occasionally!”

Ratings for the top-rated series have been down since Young has been in charge, and in addition, several fan favorites given less airtime, or dropped from the show, while plenty of newbies brought to the canvas.

So, what do you think of the exit of Mal Young from Y&R? Comment below.
