General Hospital submitted their ‘Christmas Carol’ episode featuring scenes with Michael Easton as Ebeneezer Scrooge, while Days of our Lives went for the time jump episode back on November 8th of 2019, that aired on the the shows anniversary; where Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) realizes she has been in a coma for over a year.

    I hope GH submitted a dramatic episode as the other show they were able to submit for consideration, to balance things out. Like the show when Oscar died. I absolutely loved the Christmas Carol show, but I seem to recall them not doing too well in the past when they submitted gimmicky episodes, like the years when they submitted shows from the Nurses Ball. The years they won for Best Drama, I think it was for more dramatic, emotional material. I don’t know that the “variety show” type stuff plays that well with the Emmy voters.

    I am really disappointed that GH submitted the Christmas carol episode as one of it’s two episodes; the other episode, Oscar’s death, was the very best episode on daytime last year. I am hoping GH can win despite such a poor second episode selection.

    I get depressed at how many people are predicting Y&R, which submitted two episodes from Neil’s death. The show was mostly awful in 2019 – a mess – and I resent it went shows get rewarded for choosing a strong reel despite having had a poor year overall. I hope it doesn’t win and would be very disappointed it if it did win.

    Days has submitted well and honestly there are only two shows that I am rooting for and Days is my 2nd choice. The time jump was brilliant. It may have been over the top but the unmasking of Kristen would have made for an excellent contrast. Still, the first time jump episode was great and competitive for the win.

    I am not a B&B fan. I was surprised they chose to begin their reel with Hope giving birth. The baby reveal episodes were excellent. While I would be disappointed if it were to win it would be a better choice than Y&R imo.

    GH deserves to win but I worry that the 2nd episode will kill it’s chances…

    I don’t see anyone beating Y&R for Best Drama! Kristoff St. John’s death is STILL rocking the daytime world PLUS Y&R did a great job writing out his character.

    If it were solely based on the clip released, Young & Restless by a landslide. Peter Bergman and Eileen Davidson shine in those scenes. So natural, so moving, such emotion — what daytime drama does best.

    blech ! on GH ; for submitting ; the dumbass lame Michael Easton “rendition” of , what? no fuss no muss on his hair, and that oh so lame , smirk !!!! Thank God I missed that ep. @GH certainly has made B&B and DAYS look that much better. which isn’t much

    who ever for gods sake would watch a whole hour of ???? “PUSH !!! ” and then see her COMA’d.

    which is certainly what would have happened sooner w/watching Jenny Bear… come to .. after a year long lapse…. and/or sleep… who wanted more COMA’d for Jenny Bear… certainly Jack could have been that much more occupied with Eve. hell yeah

    SMART – MOVE – get it – tactical made for EMMY PUSH the envelope. watching Jackie plus Ashley emote on the passing of Neil Winter. GOD I hope.. this isn’t a PUSH for his son and daughter to reign in a WIN. GOD they suck… Lilly and Devon… POOR.

    sigh ! here’s hoping… WITHOUT any FAN getting full REEL to cast “OUR” thank the fan(s) OWN VOTE. Salem for the WIN.

    Who should win? DAYS. The time jump breathed fresh air into the show and into the genre. The payoffs continue.
    Who will win? Y&R because the Neil episodes they submitted were gold, but they were the only bright spot in a year when the writing on this show hit a devastating rock bottom from which it has not risen.

REPORT: Days of our Lives Targets September Production Restart

Looks like Salem and Days of our Lives will be back in full-swing come September, if the target date holds true as revealed today by Deadline.

According to their sources, Corday Productions, who produces the long-running NBC daytime drama, sent out an email to cast members on Thursday notifying them of their intent to resume production come September 1st.

However for this article; reps for NBC, Corday and Sony Pictures TV declined to comment.

Days of our Lives has had enough shows banked through early October of this year, so was not pressed to get back into production amidst the coronavirus pandemic as much as CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful (which went back into production a week and half ago), and The Young and the Restless and General Hospital who are targeting a mid-July restart.

All three of the shows, except for DAYS ran out of original episodes to air, back at the end of April of this year.

So, excited to hear that their may be plans ahead come fall for DAYS to come to back and tape new episodes? Comment below.

B&B’s Supervising Producer, Casey Kasprzyk Shares: “Just Finished Viewing Our First Produced Episode Since Starting Production Back Up!”

In a tweet late on Thursday, the supervising producer of The Bold and the Beautiful, Casey Kasprzyk, shared his enthusiasm at completing the first major hurdle for the soap going back into production during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Showing a viewing copy on disc of the first new episode produced for B&B in months, Casey said: “Just finished viewing our first produced episode since starting production back up! So proud of Team Bold & Beautiful. Great shows airing soon”

The disc had airshow number #8321 on it, and a question mark as to when it will make it to air.

The fact that The Bold and the Beautiful is the first daytime drama to get one new episode completed is a step forward amidst the spike in COVID-19 cases in Los Angeles County and the state of California.

Now soap fans will have to wait and see if General Hospital and The Young and the Restless begin their productions in the middle of July; as last projected by both series, or if there will be further delays due to the ongoing crisis for the safety of everyone involved at the shows.

So, excited to learn Casey’s news that there is a new episode of B&B on the horizon for viewers to see? Comment below.

‘Strahan, Sara and Keke’ Canceled by ABC; Show Aired In Timeslot That Once Housed ‘All My Children’

No matter a network tries to do, replacing All My Children, which ran for 41 years on ABC has remained as everyone that follows the world of daytime drama knows, problematic.  Now come word via Page Six that Strahan, Sara and Keke has been canceled.

The show hosted by Michael Strahan, Sara Haines and Keke Palmer if you recall, replaced the foodie show, The Chew which ran for seven seasons and was the first show to air in the timeslot that belonged for over four decades to All My Children. 

Back in March of this year, Strahan, Sara and Keke took a break to make way for ABC’s News  Pandemic: What You Need to Know, a daily coronavirus report anchored by Amy Robach, Dr. Jen Ashton and sometimes TJ Holmes.

However, because the show did well in that two-week experimental run it morphed into GMA 3: What You Need to Know.  The new version of the show also talked about hot topics in the current news cycle, as well.

ABC’s Catherine McKenzie began producing the “GMA3” show four months ago and the network officially announced her as Executive Producer of the program on Thursday.

While ABC has yet to officially announce Strahan, Sara and Keke is over, a spokesperson told Page Six: “We’re proud of our teams at ‘SSK’ and ‘GMA3’ and how quickly they transitioned to producing a daily show to give people the news and information they need during an unprecedented pandemic, and conversations continue about how the show will evolve in the months ahead.”

It appears that Strahan, Sara and Keke won’t be returning; the future as many of their staff have transitioned over to ‘GMA 3’ with producers from ABC News Live, (the streaming division), helmed by McKenzie.

As for the futures of Strahan, Haines and Palmer; Strahan will continues to host Good Morning America, and they are all actively under contract with the network.

So, what do you think of  ‘Strahan, Sara and Kek’e being replaced by ‘GMA 3: What You  Need to Know’?  How long do you think that show will last in the timeslot once taken up by residents of Pine Valley? Comment below.
