The talented and oh-so-sexy Wilson Bethel is on the move to a new show that soap fans should definitely tune-in for! The former star of The Young and the Restless where he played Ryder is heading to the new ABC sudsy drama, Blood & Oil!

Bethel, who was series regular on CW’s Hart of Dixie , and most recently played astronaut Scott Carpenter on ABC’s The Astronaut Wives Club has continued to have a successful career in primetime television.

According to Deadline, Bethel will play the role of  Finn, a charismatic but poor businessman, who owns a food truck, and partners up with Kess (Keston John) and Ada’ (Yaani King). 

The ABC drama stars Don Johnson as a ruthless oil tycoon in the lead role, and Chace Crawford and Rebecca Rittenhouse as a young couple who move to “The Bakken” in North Dakota, booming after the biggest oil discovery in American history.

The series written by Josh Pate and Rodes Fishburne and executive produced by Tony Krantz looked extremely promising when it has its official unveiling in front of the television press at the recent ABC TCA Summer Press Tour, just a few weeks ago.

Watch the official trailer for Blood & Oil after the jump.  Then let us know if you will be checking out Wilson in his new role on the series!

I sure hope he retires that horrific Southern accent he attempted in “Heart of Dixie.”

He was the better of the two considering his sister Daisy was a horrible actress. Good for him, this show looks good and Don Johnson is gold!

The primetime series/soaps are heavy awesome..
People are use to watching primetime soaps/series..
Revenge, Scandal, Blacklist, the Following, American Horror Story, The Walking Dead, and the list goes on way back to Mad Men and Breaking Bad..
That is the continuing stories, series, that is of ‘now’
not to mention Empire and Mr, Robot ..
((all a world apart, a universe apart, from daytime soaps)) lol
((love my GH!!)

and some believe the watchers of primetime soaps/ongoing series would actually be invested in lower than a PG rating daytime soap that have changed little since the 80’s..

At the least RC gave an effort to modernize GH and bring it as far as a soap can go into the 21st century .. GH was unique in that way, not traditional as the other soaps..
RC did GH well ..

I am looking forward to ABC’s Primetime Soap BLOOD & OIL and to all the new primetime soap/series coining this fall..they all seem awesome, it’s gonna be some darn good watching 🙂

(I really like the SYFY primetime series/soaps so to say..Defiance, Blackmatter, Killjoys, Extant and hopefully some darn good Star Trek series, again. yeah !!

He wasn’t a “star” on Y&R. He wasn’t even on contract during his time on the show. His popularity soared after a shirtless sex scene with Jenna. The last time he was on Y&R he was left hiding in a coat closet. Then he got picked up for CW’s “Heart of Dixie”. The rest is history….and a lot more shirtless scenes. LOL.

Drew Barrymore Daytime Talk Show Pilot In The Works

This fall, new talkers from Tamron Hall and Kelly Clarkson will be part of the daytime television landscape, and now comes word that Drew Barrymore may enter the space with a new talk show for her that is in development with the pilot being shot this coming week.

According to Variety, details of the proposed one-hour show are not all clear, but Drew is said to be one of the executive producers of the pilot episode and yet there is no showrunner attached to the project at this time.  Barrymore’s company, Flower Films is likely attached as well.

Back in 2016, Barrymore had a deal in place with Warner Brothers Telepictures for a talk show, but that never came to pass, in part to a lukewarm response from TV station groups at that time.

However now the new regime at CBS’ syndication arm is said to have ‘high hopes’ for the show and they feel that Drew will appeal and do well in the daytime arena.

Barrymore recently appeared in her third season of  Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet in its 30 episode season. Through her Flower Films she was been an executive producer on unscripted series including TLC’s Rattled and VH1’s Tough Love.

So, would you be interested. or intrigued to see what kind of show Drew Barrymore has to offer in daytime? Think she would be a good host? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

The Bold and the Beautiful Ratings Winner With Phoebe is Beth Reveal

Great news for The Bold and the Beautiful and their long-awaited payoff: that the little girl being raised by Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) as “Phoebe” is really Liam (Scott Clifton) and Hope’s (Annika Noelle) daughter, Beth, who they believed had died in the long and twisty baby switch storyline.

B&B was the highest rated daytime television show in the key 25-54 womens demo and the first time in the 32-year-old history of the CBS sudser that it has been atop of that demo. That is not only among the network soaps but all series genres in daytime for the week of August 5-9 –  quite the feat.

During the ratings week, Liam figured out that Phoebe was Beth, and eventually after Thomas’ (Matt Atkinson) manipulations told Hope the truth.

All this goes to show that as frustrated as viewers get wanting the truth to come out in a story they follow; when it finally does, they are along for the ride. Something B&B executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell does exceptionally well with big umbrella storylines that hold major ramifications for many on the canvas.

Congrats to Brad and the B&B team!

So, what do you think of BOLD’s performance in the ratings for the big week in story? Comment below

Kelly Monaco Addresses Billy Miller’s Departure From GH

In a post via her twitter account, General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco (Sam) shared her heartbreak on her longtime scene partner, Billy Miller’s (Drew) exit from the ABC daytime drama series.  This was the first time that Kelly addressed the situation in a public forum.

Miller came on to GH back in 2014 as Jason Morgan, following the departure of Steve Burton, who then wound up on Y&R.  When Burton returned to GH in 2017, Miller’s part was then turned-in-to, Jason’s twin, Drew Cain.

Through a great portion of Miller’s run on GH, he was paired romantically on -screen with Monaco and the duo were, and have remained, one of the most popular duo’s in daytime.

Monaco expressed the following in her message: “I feel like I have to address this situation. #BillyMiller ‘s untimely departure from #gh. Honestly, I can not come up with the words to describe how I feel about this decision… a decision that may not be what our audience thinks to be true. I’m heartbroken… more to come.”
