Could do without Frankel and Jenner.

I’d like them to have a host.

I can’t help but feel bitter knowing that the Daytime Emmys completely ignored paying tribute to the greatest actress who has ever graced the soap opera genre – Beverlee McKinsey.

Maybe Ms. McKinsey will be remembered this year. I don’t remember a memorial tribute on every Daytime Emmy telecast. Have they done one every year? I remember Ms. McKinsey as Iris on Another World. Did not watch her on CBS (Guiding Light?) Also from Another World, Jacky Courtney is gone too. Maybe she will be remembered if she has already been.

Why does Betty White have to be everywhere? She’s like the Ryan Seacrest of TV these days.. ANNOYING!

Bite your tongue!!! Betty White may be all over the place, I give you that. But she isn’t 1/10 as annoying as that in-the-closet, overtanned nobody.

haha!! Okay, okay… the lady needs to follow Barbara Walters and hang it up already though!

Why should she “hang it up” when it is something she loves doing and has done for years? Just because someone is older in age does not mean they should stop living. Look at legends like Jeanne Cooper, 84-years-old and she worked until she could no longer physically go on. I think it is very ignorant to be agist and insist elderly men and women should retire from something they love and are good at just because of their age.

Well, Jeanne Cooper was on one show and Betty White is all over the place. It’s not ignorant & I don’t appreciate being called names on here since I didn’t attack YOU personally, now did I? It’s called too much of one person splashed all over the place and it is annoying! Kind of like a movie star that makes 20 movies a year — that gets old too.. OR the Kardashians all over the frigging place. Too much of anyone is annoying. It’s my opinion & I’m entitled to it and sticking to IT!

How is she “all over the place”? She has one show that she is on and she is presenting at the Emmys, which isn’t a stretch since she was on Bold & the Beautiful. I didn’t call YOU ignorant, I said it is ignorant to be ageist, which you appear to be from your comments. I understand that is your opinion and that is very unfortunate and I feel badly for you.

Keep up the good work, Betty White! You are an inspiration to a lot of people…just not ALL people! (smile) Sounds like this detractor is a good candidate to get spoofed on “Off Their Rockers”! LOL!!!!!!!!!

I think it sounds great thus far, and I am thrilled that HLN will broadcast it. Clearly on this channel, it will be based more on content than fluff advertisements as in recent years past. I look forward to tuning in!!!

I guess I’m old school, but I am more interested in hearing what soap opera stars are going to be presenting. If they need these other people to help bring in ratings and keep it on the air, I can live with it, but none of those stars outshine my daytime TV stars.

Me too Rodd….it’s sad & shameful when talk shows are built around the daytime Emmys because there are more of those damn talk shows now then soaps….depressing…

The only part that I want to see is the Jeanne Cooper tribute so I hope someone puts it on YouTube because I will not watch the Daytime Emmys anymore. The show hasn’t been any good since they stopped showing clips of the soap actor nominees. I don’t watch any game or daytime talk shows so I’m not interested in the rest of it.

Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos to Kick Off Season 36 of ‘Live’ with New Show Opening

The new season of morning talk shows begins this week, and one of them, Live with Kelly and Mark, is starting things off with a new show open starring the hosts and married couple, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos, formerly of All My Children fame.

Make sure to circle Tuesday September 5th, when Kelly and Mark begin their first official season together as co-hosts of the long-running show now in its 36th season.  As many know, Consuelos joined the show back in April of this year, after Ryan Seacrest made the decision to depart the series and move back to Los Angeles full-time, since the talker is shot in New York City.

In the concept of the new opening, the husband and wife duo are seen brushing their teeth in their apartment, then going through a couple of outfit changes/looks, before they settle on what they wearing as they are driven to their New York City studio where ‘Live’ emanates from, and arrive in its corridors.

In addition, this season will have a new trivia game segment called Stump Mark.  In it, Mark will try his darnedest to keep the coveted Live mug away from trivia callers trying to stump him with their two statements — one true, one false.

Scheduled guests for the week: Derek Hough, Jake Gyllenhaal, Melissa Etheridge, Josh Gad, Shinedown, Phillip Phillips, Nikki and Brie Bella and more.

Take a look at the opening title sequence for Live with Kelly and Mark below, and then let us know what you thought of it in the comment section, and let us know if you are looking forward to the new season of the talk show.

Kelly Ripa Teases New Season of ‘Live’ with Husband Mark Consuelos: “Our Show Is Best When It’s Going Off the Rails”

Since Mark Consuelos joined his real-life wife, Kelly Ripa on the morning talk show Live with Kelly and Mark, the ratings have never been better.  In fact, according to the Nielsen ratings, the former All My Children stars came in second behind The View for the 2022-2023 television season in total viewers averaging 2.293 million.

Now with the new season upon us come September, Ripa spoke with the Purist about what fans can expect now that Mark is coming into his own as her co-host.

Kelly shared, “We’re going to provide the same sort of humor and irreverence that people have come to know and love. Mark has taken the trivia game, where Ryan (Seacrest) and I would just give away coffee mugs to the audience, and decided that he’s not going to do that any more. There are no participation trophies in life, he says. If they want to win a mug, they’re going to have to stump me. I don’t really follow the ratings, but from what I’ve been told that since Mark has taken over, people stay with the show all the way through because they want to see whether or not Mark gets stumped.”

When asked what favorite segment on Live is her current favorite, Ripa expressed, “I love talking to the trivia callers. Our show is best when it’s going off the rails, when our audience gets to see the slip-ups. It is not this highly polished, Hollywood thing. It is two people meeting, having coffee, having just read the paper. We never cover actual news, we cover absurd news. When you factor in a person calling from their cellphone in the parking lot of a grocery store, what have you, it is rife with the ability to derail very quickly, and I think that’s what I love the best. I also love our viewer feedback at the very end of the show, where we take our viewers.”

So, are you looking forward to more Live with Kelly and Mark? Enjoying the duo on-screen together on the morning talker? What are your favorite staple segments from the show? Comment below.

Pamela Blair, ‘A Chorus Line’, ‘Loving’ and Daytime Emmy Nominee, Dead at 73

The Broadway community is mourning the passing of one of their most beloved members, who also appeared on several daytime soap operas throughout her career.  Pamela Blair, the original Val in A Chorus Line, died at her home in Phoenix, Arizona on Sunday following a lengthy illness. Blair was 73-years-old.

Throughout her career, the singer/dancer/actress continued to showcase her exceptional talents in shows such as: Promises, Promises, Wild and Wonderful, Sugar and Seesaw. She also gained major kudos from the musical theatre community for her portrayal of Amber in The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. 

Pamela also had notable roles on soap operas taped in New York City. First, Blair played Elizabeth Shank Ryan on Ryan’s Hope in 1980. She followed that with her most-known daytime role as Loving’s Rita Mae Bristow, a part she played from 1983-1985.

Later in 1985, 1986 and in 1992, Blair made brief appearances in two roles on All My Children, Maida Andrews and Mrs. Goodman.  It was the role of Maida Andrews that landed Blair a Daytime Emmy nomination in the newly named Outstanding Guest Performer in a Drama Series back in 1987, only losing that year to John Wesley Shipp for his role of Martin Ellis on Santa Barbara.  Blair’s last soap role was in 1994 as Another World’s Bonnie Broderick.

Throughout her enduring career, she appeared in numerous television and motion pictures including: Sabrina, The Teenage Witch, Law & Order and the motion pictures version of Annie.
