Check this out! CBS tweeted this afternoon a fantastic shot from a new and first CBS photo shoot with Genie Francis and Daniel Goddard. Genie looks amazing! We can’t wait as her new alter-ego Genevieve, Cane’s mum,  to hit the ground running on The Young and the Restless, and how she plays into the canvas.

Fantastic news for daytime in a very difficult time in the genre, to welcome a true soap icon, the legendary Francis back to the fold.   Brilliant move from the number one soap on the air.

Hope you are all gearing up for the Cane story and what is really going down?  We all want some answers! Looks like Y&R is ready to give some and more.

Let’s face it…there is only one Genie Francis, and as much as I will miss Susan Lucci, Erika Slezak, and Robin Strasser, Genie is herself a true daytime legend. Haven’t watched “Young and Restless” since the mid ’90’s, but I am coming back to it big time. The day Genie debuts we are having a “I Dream of Genie” party celebrating Miss Francis’ return to daytime.

“Next Y&R will be the Definition of SOAP if they cast Susan Lucci as Julia Newman”

Wow…hard to imagine that actually happening, but I definitely agree. I’m happy enough with Genie alone, but adding both Francis and Lucci would make ‘Y&R’ THE definition of soap. With that much power, and some fine writing, I can’t imagine anything else would even come close.

I think Susan Lucci is very over-rated, IMO.

Will love to have her back on daytime, but the picture just confirms it – she’s too young to play Cane’s mom – there is only 9 years difference between Genie and Daniel – and she looks younger than her age. And 16 years between Genie and TR – it’s gonna be strange. Sorta like Jessica Leccia being the mother of all those fully grown Ford brothers on OLTL….

General Hospital’s New Opening Title Sequence

Last Friday on the May 17th episode of ABC’s General Hospital, viewers took note of a new version of the opening title sequence of the daytime drama series.

Some thought perhaps it was tied to the GH Nurses’ Ball episodes since that is when it debuted, but in fact, it turns out it is the new updated title sequence moving forward.

With slower images of the cast, new theme music, and the end graphic plate bringing back the hospital image; thus far fans have seemed to like the new and improved version from what was previously airing.

A GH spokesperson told Michael Fairman TV on the change: “We ‘opened it up’ so that we could better feature our amazing cast.  And the back plate of the hospital is to honor our longtime GH fans.  The new music was composed by Paul Glass.”

So, what do you think of the new opening title sequence featuring the slides of the characters/cast in Port Charles, the pace of the new theme, and the retro use of the GH hospital image? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

When E! News visit the set of Y&R, Eric Braeden recounts the time Victor was feeding his wife Julia’s lover trapped in the basement dead rat; while Tracey Bregman (Lauren) reflects on why the viewers love the relationships and families in Genoa City.

In Salem and Days of our Lives, E! chats with series staples: Kristian Alfonso (Hope), then Deidre Hall (Marlena) and Drake Hogestyn (John).  Deidre reveals “possession will be on my tombstone” in terms of Marlena’s most infamous story of all-time when the good doc was possessed by Satan, while the beloved duo discuss why daytime is the best job to have.  Alfonso talks on the history of her character sharing: “I am going to hold near and dear to my heart the beginnings of Hope. And the adventure and the romance of Bo and Hope”.

From the set of General Hospital new interviews are featured with: Laura Wright (Carly), Steve Burton (Jason) and Kristina Wagner (Felicia), plus Casting Director Mark Teschner remembers Meghan Markle’s acting debut on the ABC daytime drama series.

Teschner remembers: “Meghan Markle actually had her first speaking role in television on General Hospital.  She worked on the show in the background as a nurse, and we brought her up to read her to see if there was something there.”

Steve Burton chats on the craziest story he has ever played as Jason Morgan, revealing, “The one that always pops into my head is we had to go catch a monkey that had a virus, and I said to Laura (Wright) I think this is probably the end of my career today.”

The E! News special segment will show nostalgic clips from all the daytime dramas, including Luke and Laura’s wedding on GH, Marlena’s possession from DAYS, and some of Victor’s nefarious schemes from Y&R.

Check out the promo below.  Then, let us know if you will be checking out the ‘deep dive’ this Thursday via the comment section below.
