What is the Actual Live time they are performing? It says Live except West Coast. I am in NYC area and the show airs at 3pm. Will I be watching the actual live broadcast or an hour tape delay of it? And for Periscope need to know actual Live time. Thanks


It will totally live..
East Coast will see it first, is all
time zone thing..


It is my understanding that it will be live at 2pm EST so in NY Techincally you will be seeing it on a one hour tape delay but there will be no time for edits so you will still see any mistakes etc. I’d imagine these will be left in the west coast broadcast as well but not sure!


Media and social media/tv shows and twitter etc have intertwined, that is so cool how it all connects..

I say;
Ned and Olivia .. will get married and leave GH together..
Olivia to return, alone 🙁

Going live will fun.. looking forward ti it!!


I would not use periscope during the show, but after..
I would not want miss something, the live show stuff, while in periscope..


From what I understand the show will be live at both 2p & 3 p Eastern time.


I’ll watch…but I’m not really into it. UNLESS it goes off flawlessly, seeing them laugh, make mistakes, etc only breaks the fourth wall for me…and I’d rather just get lost in the story than see all the technical stuff, cameras, lights, sets, etc that goes into making it…


Remember, everytime Paevey delivers a line correctly you have to do a shot!




I won’t see it live, but I’m excited for the energy and excitement that surrounds the live shows. Loved it when they did it on OLTL.

Break a leg GH cast! Would love to be in the live audience.

Listen to “Soap Nation Live! October 2018” on Spreaker.

If you missed Thursday night’s broadcast of Soap Nation Live! with Michael Fairman you can now listen to the replay right here in audio player above!

This episode was given to the gents in soaps as Michael welcomed his very special guests: The Young and the Restless Joshua Morrow (Nick Newman), Dancing with the Stars: Juniors and General Hospital’s Hudson West (Jake), and The Bold and the Beautiful, and One Life to Live and Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman favorite, Joe Lando (Judge Craig McMullen).

During this fun night of chat, Joshua weighed-in on the Shick wedding that went bust, when Sharon told Nick at the altar that she knows he had sex with Phyllis.  Morrow, who will celebrate his 25th year as Nick Newman in early 2019 chimed in what the future for the stat-crossed couple may hold, and how he has enjoyed showing Nick’s dark side of late, plus he revealed one scene he felt uncomfortable with that he would not play, the ladies over the years in Nick’s life, and when asked by a listener of his memories of the late, great Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor), Joshua shared some fun and poignant remembrances. He also addressed the status of Doug Davidson at the CBS daytime drama, and hopes that the writers will find a way to utilize the Y&R vet in the future.

Next, Hudson West’s joined the podcast where he gave listeners the inside scoop on what it has been like to be one of the 12 celebrity kids competing in the first-ever Dancing with the Stars: Juniors, which debuts Sunday at 8PMEST in a two-hour season premiere on ABC.  Hudson talked on how he has been learning the dance moves with his young pro dance partner and Dancing with the Stars pro mentor, how he deals with nerves before performing his dance routines and more.  General Hospital fans who know of Hudson’s Daytime Emmy-nominated performance of Jake Webber, Elizabeth and Jason’s son, got some interesting tidbits when he talked about working with Rebecca Herbst, Steve Burton and more, and how much he loves being on the show.

The final guest of the night was Joe Lando.  Prior to bringing Joe on the air, Michael played a classic clip from Megan’s death on One Life to Live from the 90’s, where Joe as Jake Harrison performed one of the saddest and most memorable scenes in soaps with his then acting partner, Jessica Tuck.  Joe then revealed when he was on Soap Nation Live that it has been over 20 years since he had heard the scene, and was still moved by it.  Lando who is now appearing as Judge McMullen on CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful teased there could be a love interest around the corner for the judge, as well as some retribution for his ruling in the custody case of Will Spencer, because of a favor called in by Ridge.  Lando also talks about his time on the hit primetime series, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman as Byron Sully, and shared more about his time on One Life to Live working with the likes of: Erika Slezak, Bob Woods, and Tuck.

Last, during out Game Show segment, a lucky caller won two VIP tickets to the Star Struck Fan Event Fall Festival in Alexandria, Virginia featuring members of the cast of Days of our Lives, as well as a Y&R goodie bag; which includes a personalizes autographed picture of Joshua Morrow, after answering correctly some Nick Newman trivia!
