Some good news over at The Young and the Restless!  After all the pink-slips and departures, fan favorite Jess Walton is on her way back to the number one soap to reprise her role as Jill Foster Abbott!

According to Nelson Branco at Soap Opera Uncensored, Jess is on her way back for a story arc that will last 4-6 weeks.  Walton told Uncensored, “I return on October 5th.  It’s a great story.”

So soapers, what could the story be?  Will Colin (Tristan Rogers) be far behind?  Will it reunite Jill and Katherine over a common cause, person, or reignite their feud, yet again? Or, it could be kid trouble?  Some blast from the past?  Weigh-in and let us know if you are excited about the return of Daytime Emmy winner Walton, even if it’s short term?

Love Jess Walton &Jill. Hopefully, she’s coming back to say goodbye to Cane & Lilly and will stick around to comfort Katherine as she bids farewell to Tucker. Kinda mean, I know but those are 3 characters who need to go.

Great news! I too wish it were longer, but maybe she will do this every 4-6 months or so and stay for a while.

I hope that her story is with Tristan Rogers. They have so much chemistry together.

Fantastic news! This was Bill Bell’s favorite character and it’s why after getting rid of the Foster’s and Brooke’s family he kept only Jill and built years of story line around her. Many fans and primarily newer viewers fail to realize or perhaps may not know that Victor or Nikki are not the true heart of Bill Bell’s YR, it has always been Jill Foster who is a true legacy character from the very beginning of YR. Jill should remain until YR goes dark.

Wow, that is a blast from the past to hear the Brooke’s and Fosters mentioned again. Once upon a time Genoa city had residents that were not all mega rich like today. Yes, we had the Chancellor’s, the Brooke’s and the Abbotts, but we used to have blue collar families like the Fosters, the Williams, Stevensons and the Reeds. I miss Jill as Jill Foster- not Jill Katherine’s long lost daughter or now Jill, Lauren’s half sister, but poor girl Jill envying the world of the rich, elbowing her way in, only to find it filled with people who had less class than regular folks at home. Ahh those were the days. Yep, early Jill Foster define the show, she was the one who was truly young and restless. Thanks Teri for trip down memory lane.

I totally agree. I just wish the part was still being played by Brenda Dickson…the only REAL JILL!

What a four/six week story and then she leaves again? Is that what she will do, back and forth to oregon like Trisha does to Tennessee?

Love her and glad she is back. Jill needs to be more front and center and become more true to what her character really is. Hope the new writer and JFP can make this happen.

I’ll take what I can get, but why, why isn’t this long term?
I’m sure she was expecting to come back full time after her leave of absence.

Christine

She moved up north so she is not in Los Angeles anymore. It would be hard for her to work full time now.

What do you mean – even if it’s short term ?
Do you know something we don’t ?
Y&R needs Jill – she’s part of the fabric of the show.
I hope she has a really great story when she returns….instead of the gobble-de-goop they’ve been serving up lately.

I can’t wait until she’s back. She is the young and the restless. I hope she’s back with a vengeance and a great story line.

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.”
