Daytime Emmy winner, Doug Davidson (Paul Williams) represented the cast of The Young and the Restless proudly this morning on KCAL9 in Los Angeles!  Doug was on hand to discuss Y&R’s amazing milestone this week, that of the CBS series being the #1 daytime drama 25 years running!

During his segment, Doug reflected on the topics portrayed in the soap genre, the history of his character (in which younger archival footage of a young Doug Davidson as Paul was shown), and the ability of the soaps to tell compelling story with little time for day to day production.

Davidson mentions about the essence of Y&R: “The strength of our show is about relationships, and people interacting.  We don’t freeze the cities and we don’t have vampires!”

Watch the segment with Doug on KCAL 9 after the jump!  Then, let us know what you thought about his comments on what makes Y&R different from the other daytime dramas!

Doug is so cute, just love him. I think that is why Y&R works so well, it’s character driven instead of plot driven and you don’t have a character coming back from the dead a hundred times.. Also CBS fights to keep the show at # 1, they are great to the fans and stay interactive with them on Twitter..

I have always liked Doug Davidson (Paul Williams) ..
I hope Y&R become comes un-boring and soon has some umpth the to lackluster long drawn out stories, I find myself FF through all the boring conversations.
I keep watching in hopes of change, some excitement ..
Doug Davidson (Paul Williams) is awesome 🙂 hope he never leaves!!!
I would like to have Paul with Nikki rather than with Christine ..

I never did care for Cricket either. I actually like Paul with Nina! I thought their mature romance just made sense after all the years. Without Nina there, I though, I agree Nikki would make a perfect match for him. How many times can we watch an abusive, crotchety Victor suck the life out of our Nikki?

Love him and his humour. So glad Doug and Paul are on the front burner right now after many years of being back burned. Hope the show brings his humor into it.

Is there any way to automatically mute the actors telling me what web site I am every time I visit this site?

They’re so annoying and cause my PC to freeze up for a good 2-5 minutes every time. Sometimes I have to do a hard restart. 🙁

Me thinks the Y&R is feeling some heat from GH hence the jabs about vampires and freezing cities! LOL

Jeff a couple of weeks ago I would of said no but in light of what has went down this last week I agree. You notice it was jabs during Monty’s reign and RC&FV’s! Off the board for a while Santa will not come to visit if I do not start being nice! Lol

Freezing cities and vampires…i mentioned several posts ago that exact same thing…a great portion of the viewing audience who watch soaps prefer down to earth serials than campiness and thats why the two cbs shows attract a larger audience…i myself like GH and Days(the latter is so much better now that it isnt campy the way it use to be and i wish gh would do the same)…some campy ok but gh over does it sometimes! However, i still find them the most entertaining! Y&R is no.1 for 25 years…thats good but lets be grateful there are still soap fans… Read more »

Doug Davidson is amazing. I’m so happy he won an Emmy. It was so well-deserved.
Paul has always been my favorite character. It’s great that he has gotten more airtime since July. It has made me watch the show more often. I enjoy watching Paul and I love when he shares scenes with Christine. keep writing for them, please writers.
Congratulations to Y&R on 25 years as number one.

I love Doug Davidson, and Paul and Nikki (I believe, so let me know if I’m missing anyone else) are the remaining actors (not characters) from the 1970’s. To the sour gripers, once again, Y&R IS the #1 daytime drama and one of the top rated shows across the daytime spectrum, and it regularly puts up numbers that would be competitive in prime time. I believe Doug Davidson had a large part in initially propelling Y&R to its heights, so congratulations! This is truly an amazing accomplishment that cannot be “spun” away.

I have watched Y&R since [day one]. It is character drive and current . My heart broke when Jeanne died.
I have been so mad at some of the writers but never the actors, they only keep the good ones.
I am 76 and Doug Davidson is still a cutie

All My Children

Mark Consuelos on the All My Children Primetime Reboot: “I Know They’re Going to Bring Back Some Fan Favorites”

On Friday, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) was a guest on the CBS afternoon series, The Talk, where he shared his excitement and some insight into the upcoming All My Children primetime reboot, Pine Valley, in development at ABC..

As previously reported, Mark and his wife Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley, AMC) are two of the executive producers on the project.

Consuelos shared on the reboot:All My Children was such a big part of my life and my wife’s life. And you know, I met my wife there obviously, had kids, became a young man on that show, and we got the opportunity to reboot the primetime version and the idea was brought to us, and we’re so excited.  Of all the things that we’ve ever announced that we’re going to do, this is one of the biggest responses we’ve got from our fans. They’re so excited.  It’s a big piece of TV that’s been missing for such a long time, and we’re going to bring it back.”

When avid soap fan and The Talk co-host, Sheryl Underwood, posed a major question to Consuelos that has been on longtime All My Children fans minds, she got a solid response from him.

Sheryl was trying to get some tea on who might appear in the reboot, when she asked, “Is it going to be the Cortlandts and the Warners? Is it going to be everybody?” Consuelos then responded with: “I know they’re going to bring back some fan favorites, and it will take place in Pine Valley, and I’m really, really excited.”

You can watch a portion of Mark’s virtual visit on The Talk below.

Then let us know, which AMC characters do you want to see back and on the primetime series, Pine Valley?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

General Hospital

Lexi Ainsworth Teases Her Return to General Hospital

With her father Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) presumed dead (although viewers know he is very much alive with amnesia), it looks like Kristina is on her way back to Port Charles – which would be a welcome return to the role for Daytime Emmy winner Lexi Ainsworth.

Rumors began circulating on Inauguration day Wednesday, when Ainsworth shared a pic on her Instagram Story of her watching the ceremonies from a dressing room at Prospect Studios in Los Angeles, where GH is taped.

Later, after reports had surfaced on social media that Ainsworth might be returning to her signature role, the actress shared some of those on her Instagram Story as well, which was seen as her way of confirming she is back on the show.

Lexi has been recurring on General Hospital for the last several years, so there is no telling how long she will be on-screen this time.

While there has been no official confirmation from GH, chances are that if there is a funeral ahead for Sonny, Kristina of course would be there to mourn her father. Stay tuned.

So, excited that Lexi will be back on-air on GH? Comment below.
