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….

On the site homepage is Benard’s mission statement.  The two-time Daytime Emmy-winner expressed: “State of Mind to me means being 100% present, feeling completely at peace inside of you, not letting your thoughts control your life and always looking for ways to be the best that you can be.”

The new site features merchandise including:’State of Mind” t-shirts in various colors, as well as way to pre-order Maurice’s upcoming memoir, Nothing General About it.   In addition, Benard shares his “Sunday Sessions” in a special section, as well as his upcoming tour dates, with more content to come.

Maurice released a video talking about how ‘State of Mind’ came to him one night following an anxiety attack.

As many know, Benard is a mental health advocate having been very open about his own struggles with mental illness over the years, and how he wants to continue to dispel the stigma of those who battle with it.

The new site offers links to three organizations close to Maurice: Nami (National Alliance of Mental Health), Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services, and the International Bipolar Foundation.

Maurice released a video talking about how ‘State of Mind’ came to him one night following an anxiety attack.  Watch it below.

Drew Barrymore Daytime Talker A Go: Set For Launch 2020

CBS Television Distribution is getting more into the daytime talk show arena, with their first series of that kind in quite some time, after confirming that Drew Barrymore will indeed have a daytime talk show that now will premiere in the fall of 2020.

The new syndicated talk show has already had CBS Television Stations signing on as the first station group around the country to carry the show. New York and Los Angeles are on-board as two key heavyweight markets.

According to Deadline: the pickup for Barrymore’s talker came rather quickly just two months after she shot the pilot for it in the Big Apple.

The decision to move forward with Drew’s new show comes on the heels of a strong showing by NBC Universal’s new daytime talker, The Kelly Clarkson Show and the good start for Disney’s Tamron Hall Show.

As to where in the day-part the syndicated series hosted by Barrymore might fall in your daily viewing schedule is yet to be determined.

With solid ratings for Kelly Clarkson, Tamron Hall, and a new Barrymore talk series on the way; do you think it signifies more trouble ahead for your daytime soap operas in the long-run, or will everyone be able to have their slots and retain their audience and co-exist happily ever-after? Share your theories via the comment section below.
