Looks like talk shows are multiplying to fill the void from departing mainstay gabfests, and to cut down daytime’s cost, which continues to spell more bad news for the remaining soap operas.  Monday, CBS announced that Survivor host, Jeff Probst will be launching his own talk show in the fall of 2012!

According to EW.com, Probst, who was a contender to replace Regis Philbin with Regis and Kelly Live has now gotten his own solo slot.  Probst stated, “I’m fascinated with human nature and thrilled that this show will allow me the opportunity to connect with real people and explore their stories on a personal level.”

Probst’s new show will debut around the same time as his former CBS stablemate Katie Couric’s, who has her new show set for launch on September 2012 on ABC.

Just what we need – yet Another freakin talk show – UGH!
If all the Networks care about is how cheap a show is during daytime –
why not just have a test pattern between 9:00AM and 5:00PM?
that would be real cheap and far more interesting than a talk show –
they might as well because when the last Soap is gone,
I will be done with Daytime TV.

Exactly what I was going to say. Except for their remaining two soaps, which no doubt one will be gone to make time for this talk show, CBS has nothing but talk shows on day time now. Oh, forgot, and two dumb game shows, one which took Guiding Light’s place. Who is going to watch talk shows all day long? Not me and I bet a lot of other soap fans won’t either.

Soaps were always a way for me to escape into a world of make believe. I really don’t want to watch people with real problems discussing them on daytime TV. Where is the fun in getting behind and rooting for your favorite character or couple? Or talking with others via message boards about how good/bad the current story line of the show is. I think putting on all these talk shows, judge shows, etc, plays into the hands of boredom and quiet, as no one will be talking about them. Frankly I like the test pattern comment above as a… Read more »

Lynn Herring Celebrates 35th Anniversary of Her General Hospital Debut; and ‘We Love Lucy’

Today, April 11th marks the 35th anniversary of the debut of Lynn Herring on General Hospital as Lucy Coe.  And wow, when you look at the road this character has gone on played to the hilt by Herring, it has been one entertaining ride for GH fans along the way.

Lucy started out as a mousy librarian, if you can believe that! And of course, she eventually showed all that she was a bombshell.  She then became quite the schemer and seductress.

Along the way, Lucy was married to Alan Quartermaine (the late Stuart Damon), was involved with Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) and other men in Port Charles.

 

At one point, Herring took the character of Lucy to the now defunct Port Charles where she stayed from 1997-2003,

But this one time gold-digger eventually became the champion of the GH Nurses’ Ball and helped raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS research. Now, year after year, the one thing you can always look forward to is Herring’s hilarious antics and sincerity in her star turn as the emcee of the annual fundraising event.

On Sunday, the GH tweeted posted: “Lucy Coe knows everything about everyone in Port Charles and we would be lost without her. Please help us congratulate TheLynnHerring on the 35th Anniversary of her #GH debut”. 

Lynn responded sharing: “Thank you! Have loved every @GeneralHospital  moment!”

Share your congratulations to Lynn via the comment section below, and let us know your favorite Lucy moment too!

All My Children Alum Cornelius Smith Jr. Joins the Cast of Apple TV+ Limited Series, ‘Five Days At Memorial’

Daytime fans remember him fondly as the son of Jesse (Darnell Williams) and Angie Hubbard (Debbi Morgan), Frankie, on All My Children.  And now, actor Cornelius Smith Jr., is set to join a major limited series based on the acclaimed nonfiction book by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Sheri Fink, about the the first five days following Hurricane Katrina made landfall entitled Five Days at Memorial.

Written by John Ridley and Carlton Cruse, Smith will play a doctor, (something he is very familiar with playing since Frankie Hubbard was a doctor in Pine Valley!) named Dr. Bryant King, an internist and one of the few doctors of color at the hospital, who finds himself very much in the middle of the crisis.  He will headline the show alongside Vera Farmiga and Adepero Oduye.

Deadline broke the casting news.

So, looking forward to seeing Cornelius back on our screens? Do you remember his work as Dr. Frankie Hubbard on All My Children? Comment below.
