Cute promo, but it does not really tell us anything at all. Plus, Disney-ABC needs to release these new promos, because I am dying to see them!

Not sure what to make of the generic promo except how great Josh Swickard looks in that red pullover. Another tease about Michael and the baby? More Carly & Sonny? Woweeee. On the plus side there’s Drew & Kim, Monica, Franco (boy, he has awesome hair) and Elizabeth… and how great Josh looks in that red pullover.

I love reading your comments, Soaphound– It’s one AM on the east-coast and I can’t sleep…. so, here I am, LOL. AHHH, that red pullover!!
I’m somewhat disappointed ……Willow is not a good match for Chase. She’s cute…..Too cute. He needs someone spicy ( as I was typing ‘spicy’, a chili pepper emoji popped up– so apropos!!
Methinks Willow is Wiley’s mommy!! And, Nina’s daughter….considering Kiki is gone, I must continue with the fantasy somehow….
I am going downstairs for some hot chocolate–hope it does the trick. I have an early class….
Nite….❤️

I had to come back to this, Soaphound…..I replied to you in the middle of the night ( insomnia) —-I guess my post did not make it?!
I had said that Willow is Wiley’s ( or is it Whiley?) mommy……at least, she thinks she is. What a tangled web …etcetera!! And, a shame!! I do not like the path this story is taking.
Same theme over and over, in every soap. The writing’s on the wall….pardon the pun.
From what I’ve read, as I brought myself up to speed after I started watching GH; didn’t Jason think Michael was his?
So, are TPTB using some kind or ironic ploy here?

But Celia, what is the purpose of this except to expose the baby switch, which Liesl seems bent on doing all by herself? Willow will think Wiley is hers when her baby actually died, right? So she’s being set up for double disappointment. Not right! Just so Michael can have yet another lady to romance/disappoint? Give Chase someone worthy of his sweet goofiness, not some tragic damsel with no sense of humor.

Hey, Soaphound…..I don’t like Willow’s character. Not for Chase. She is as boring as puppy-eyed Michael. They belong together. They could stare into each other’s eyes for eons and see nothing.
I wish I could ken where all this is going……why so many characters? Why is Liesl back? Will she be Ryan’s next victim….I will not be happy if she were brought back just to fill the quota of his killing spree…..Ryan should get rid of Lulu instead, in one fell swoop. When will Ava figure him out?
When will Stella tell forgot-his-name ( her lover from her past) that Curtis is their son?
The best thing watching ( caught up with all my soapies today) was seeing Felicia….this woman never ages–so beautiful!!
What is the point of Shiloh? Of Christina? Of Sam and her lap-dog, Jason? Is Shiloh ( Hank? Or whatever his name is) the mystery person texting Sam? I bet he was never a whichamacallit in Drew’s past…..thing is, my interest was not piqued and I don’t care……DOOL is the soap to watch right now. Both GH and Y&R frustrate me.
Happy New Year, my friend.❤️

GOD – at least it was not smack dab all about the corinthos’ even if they get the last pic

THANK YOU .. what are you saying ?

I will hold still… this Michael ( Chad Duell ) un momento STINKS

who on this gods green earth would choose for Willow .. Michael and/or Chase

not matter how “hard” the plug he still grows stale

Chase and Willow for the WIN PLEASE

SINCE we all know… that Lucas and Brad are not mainstay… just give the damned brat to Michael… let Carly bury him

over and OUT

Emmy Winner and Noted Soap Opera Head Writer; Hogan Sheffer Passes Away At 61

Over the last several hours, reports have broke that one of daytime’s most notable scribes has died.  Hogan Sheffer, who was head writer at As the World Turns, Days of our Lives and The Young and the Restless has passed away at the age of 61.

Soap Hub, first reported the news via multiple sources, however, many writers who worked with Hogan during his tenure on the soaps have taken to social media to share their condolences and their grief and remembrances.

Sheffer’s appearance on the soap scene was unexpected, especially in a genre where it is often rare for new blood to take the reins at the head writer position.  Proctor & Gamble had decided to bring in Hogan after his work as the Director of Screenplay Development for DreamWorks, not because of his writing credits for a previous network soap.  He was given trial deal as a breakdown writer for the CBS soap and 10-weeks in became the beloved town of Oakdale’s new head writer.

Hogan and his then writing team were able to turn the classic, As the World Turns around.  The show went up in the ratings and during his time with the series ‘World Turn’s’ won two Daytime Emmys for Outstanding Drama Series, and he and the writing team picked up four Emmy victories all through 2000-2004.

Next, Sheffer landed in Salem as head writer of Days of our Lives along with Meg Kelly from 2006 through to the beginning of 2008.   He would later join The Young and the Restless and team up with then head writers: Maria Arena Bell and Scott Hamner, and eventually stay with the show till 2012.  During Sheffer’s time in Genoa City, Y&R also won a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Writing in 2011.

On Sunday, former WWE and daytime writer Tom Casiello, who was extremely close with Sheffer…  and who shared how Hogan gave him his start at writing in daytime, took to his Facebook page to pay tribute to a man who had such an impact on his life and many others.  It is worth the read here. 

Y&R writer, Sara Bibel tweeted: “Hogan Sheffer was a gamechanger for ATWT and daytime. Everyone I know who worked with him adored him. RIP”

And, iconic ATWT star, Martha Byrne (Ex-Lily) tweeted on Sheffer’s passing: “To say he was one of a kind would be a tremendous understatement. Our years at ATWT with Hogan at the helm were a rebirth for our beautiful show. Loved his writers, actors,crew. Blessed to have him on the first floor in Brooklyn ready to listen. Talented. Funny. Generous. RIP”

Colleen Zenk (Ex-Barbara, ATWT) also took to Twitter upon learning of the passing of Sheffer sharing: “I loved him, loved him, loved him… he was so good to me. Thank you for everything, Hogan. You were so loved. Especially, by me… Rest in peace…”

Michael Fairman TV will continue to bring you updates as the soap world mourns the loss of a creative force in our genre.  Share your condolences and thoughts on the death of Hogan Sheffer via the comment section below.
