"DAYS" Crystal Chappell on Carly's new storyline and the end of the light and "Venice"

crystalChappel03.jpgTV Guide has a great feature with Crystal Chappell on her final days as Olivia on Guiding Light and first days back in Salem on Days of our Lives. The astounding and popular actress addresed Carly’s re-emergence onto the Salem canvas, and revealed more on her new web-series coming this fall, “Venice”.  Here are some excerpts:

You left Days in 1993. What was it like to step back on the set after all this time?
There were some familiar faces but everything and everyone—most of the cast and crew—seemed largely new to me. Then again, I’ve had too much wine between 1993 and 2009 to remember how things used to be!

Give us the dish on Carly. It’s never good news with that gal.
Well, Carly has committed a murder and she’s on the run. When we first see her, she’s in Europe and trying to make her way back to Salem. Because of what she’s done, there are other people in danger, too, and she needs help from Bo.

In regards to “Venice”, TV Guide asked Chappell, “What’s the plot?”
It’s a soap opera about family dynamics that centers on a community of people in Venice. Gina [Chappell’s role] is the lead. She’s an out lesbian and an interior designer who specializes in hotels. She’s trying to find her way through life and find love, which isn’t easy because she’s terrible at relationships and has lots of issues.

Impeachment Hearings On Broadcast Networks Show Ratings Much Lower Than The Daytime Soap Operas They Are Preempting

In an infuriating article written by FOX news, off of a study from NewsBusters, the news outlet and others have come to the realization that all of us who want our soaps back on the air already know.  That is … that the network daytime dramas ratings are far better on a day-to-day basis than people tuning into network TV during the day to watch the impeachment hearings of Donald Trump.

Soap fans have been furious that in the afternoon network TV is pulling their soaps off their normal airtime across all coasts.  Daytime soap viewers feel that all of the 24-hour news cable outlets should be the the place to go to see the hearings during the day; as to not to preempt the drama on General Hospital, Days of our Lives, The Young and the Restless, and The Bold and the Beautiful.

Just for the record, the study via NewsBusters showed that on day one of the impeachment hearing the networks scored as such: CBS averaged 1.52 million, ABC  1.29 million viewers, and NBC averaged 1.26 million viewers.   Thursday’s were even worse with CBS averaging 1.4 million, ABC 1.2 million viewers and NBC had 1.1 million viewers.

ABC’s General Hospital averages 2.15 million viewers while NBC’s Days of Our Lives averages 1.95 million viewers.”
