With so many soaps gone we need this award show. There are daytime stars that are better than the oscar winners. So how could anyone even consider not honoring them. There has to be a special tribute to AMC & OLTL even if we get them back. ABC execs, I hope are too ashamed to show their faces.

This is good news for those of us euphemistically “searching for tomorrow” when it comes to a renaissance of respect for daytime drama. CBS should step up to the plate as it has the highest rated daytime lineup.

As long as they pay proper respect to AMC and OLTL, I’m in. Get rid of the other garbabge filler they make us sit through and give these shows the TIME for a proper segment. I’m beyond hoping the idiots at ABC are going to bring AMC and OLTL back. Their daytime lineup is hot, but for GH, which I’ve now started to watch and love. They pull the one bastion of true “daytime” and I won’t even be watching their “night time”.

Holly’s Alive as Emma Samms Makes a Return to General Hospital

Friday’s cliffhanger ending of General Hospital revealed that Holly is indeed alive and being held captive, but by whom?  Who ever is behind this has her locked away and being watched on a surveillance system.

Viewers saw a hand of someone that is behind the kidnapping, and that Emma Samms made a return to GH in her signature role of Holly Sutton.

Samms, debuted on GH back in 1982, and has come and gone, and come back again to the ABC daytime drama series.  She last appeared back on it in 2015.

Nighttime soap fans remember her fondly as Fallon on ABC’s Dynasty and its spin-off, The Colbys.
