David Hasselhoff discusses with MSN’s, Deanna Barnert his return to The Young and the Restless for a special series of episode airing next week, that centers around his on-screen momma, Liz Foster (played by Juliana McCarthy), who has been taken ill.  Hasselhoff will be seen reunited on-screen with Wings Hauser(Greg) and Jeanne Cooper (Katherine), as well as working with Jess Walton (Jill). Note: Brenda Dickson was Jill when Hasselhoff was Snapper on Y&R.

The infamous Hasselhoff opens up about his bad acting in his early days of daytime drama! “For the first two years, it was a rough time for me. I was replacing William Gray Espy and everyone loved him. I got a ton of hate mail. I remember reading one letter that said, ‘Every time you act, I want to regurgitate and climb the walls.’ I said, ‘You better climb the walls, ’cause I’m sticking around.’ I remember writing this person back, going, ‘This is horrible. I’m hated.’

“I turned it around, because Jeanne put me under her wing. She took me home and helped me find Snapper. She called Bill Bell and said, “Let him be emotional. Let him be different than William Gray Espy,’ who is very cool. It was a big shock to everybody. With the help of her and this book that I still believe in, ‘The Power of your Subconscious Mind,’ I turned it around.  Tell the fans I said, ‘Thank you’ and ‘Stay tuned. You’re going to love the shows. You are guaranteed to cry. The crying Hasselhoff has returned.'”

Ellen DeGeneres Signs On To Continue Her Talk Show For Three More Years

After rumors were swirling that Ellen DeGeneres was considering moving on from her highly successful daytime talk show after 16 years, all of that was kiboshed, when earlier this week on Tuesday, Ellen announced herself that The Ellen DeGeneres Show would continue on for three more years through 2022.  DeGeneres inked a new deal to stay put.

In her video announcement to her studio and at-home audience, she expressed: “From the beginning, I said this show was going to be like a relationship. We’ve been through the good, the bad, the ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ phase. It’s been a lot of fun and 16 years is a pretty good run. Sometimes in a relationship, you need to take a break. But I don’t. You’re stuck with me. I just signed for three more years.”

DeGeneres’ writing, directing and producing team all won Daytime Emmys at the just completed 46th annual ceremonies.

Watch Ellen’s announcement below, followed by Michael Fairman TV’s interviews with ‘Ellen’s’ creative teams from earlier this month after they took home the gold.

Let us know via the comment section below, if you are glad that Ellen’s daytime talk show will live to see another day, in fact, three years!

General Hospital’s New Opening Title Sequence

Last Friday on the May 17th episode of ABC’s General Hospital, viewers took note of a new version of the opening title sequence of the daytime drama series.

Some thought perhaps it was tied to the GH Nurses’ Ball episodes since that is when it debuted, but in fact, it turns out it is the new updated title sequence moving forward.

With slower images of the cast, new theme music, and the end graphic plate bringing back the hospital image; thus far fans have seemed to like the new and improved version from what was previously airing.

A GH spokesperson told Michael Fairman TV on the change: “We ‘opened it up’ so that we could better feature our amazing cast.  And the back plate of the hospital is to honor our longtime GH fans.  The new music was composed by Paul Glass.”

So, what do you think of the new opening title sequence featuring the slides of the characters/cast in Port Charles, the pace of the new theme, and the retro use of the GH hospital image? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
