I’m laughing at the fact that The Bold and the Beautiful did not get nominated. Time for fresh blood on that soap. It’s long over-due!

Could not agree with you more Scott!

I agree, Scott. I am weary of B&B’s endless story loops. It is time for some major changes. For a drama set in Los Angeles with such international businesses as fashion and publishing as the backdrop, real-life business stakes and real-world issues should have some lasting impact and effect. After awhile, these romantic heroes and heroines seem foolish for all their endless back-and-forth rather than worthy of our investment for their successes and heartbreak. Give us a couple that lasts more than six months. Give us characters that actually do what they say in matters of the heart.

I am a huge GH fan since 1992 but i have to say, the show needs a new head writer. I don’t even recognize Sam and Jason anymore.

Did anyone notice that Y&R didn’t list a head writer? Curious to say the least.

Actually its time for the people who run the four soaps to get their heads out of the sand and start thinking about the year 2020. It took a near death experience for Days but they are moving in the right direction of putting more content on the web. The gross for the Downton Abbey movie is nearing 200 million. Think folks a movie produced for 30 million for a PBS series has grossed nearly

Its time for these cheapstake soap producers to start investing in the fans. As all the soaps are in California why not have a convention similar to what comic-con is where all 4 shows are together. Get togethers dont have to be just at Emmy time. Invite the people from the old ABC and CBS soaps. You’ve got a ton of retiring baby boomers who grew up on soaps who would love to revisit their Luke and Laura years. Comic can was once a small committed group of people who liked comics and look at it now. And eeryone knows the story about that small group of people devoted to keeping a science fiction show around until it became the phenomena known as Star Trek. Keep Hope Alive.

Bold survives because of their international following ! Very sad for the soaps I think they checked out a long time ago so many talented writers that could have stepped in

Teledgy also told Deadline after the executive session that negotiations are still ongoing and the series will stay on NBC, and will not be moving onto the upcoming Peacock streaming service said to bow very soon.
