If the numbers from the views on the trailer for NBC’s new series, This Is Us are any indication, a smash hit is on the way for the network and for one of its leads, The Young and the Restless Justin Hartley (Adam Newman)!

According to Deadline, this week the trailer for This Is Us which also stars Mandy Moore and Milo Ventimiglia, plus Chrissy Metz, Sterling K. Brown, and Susan Kelechi Watson is nearing the 30 million mark for views on facebook as of Friday afternoon.  This is a record for a rookie show for the seven days of upfront week where new trailers for all networks are revealed and posted online.

The This Is Us trailer shatters the record for most Facebook video views posted by the CW’s Legends Of Tomorrow last year (4.1 million), and in addition, the upcoming series bested the trailer for Fox’s Prison Break event series (22 million view) as the most-watched trailer for the entire upfront week.

This Is Us follows an ensemble, some of them sharing the same birthday, whose life stories intertwine in curious ways, is clearly resonating with fans and on social media.  There is a high level of shares and favorable comments to what the audience has seen in this teaser for the upcoming series.

What do you think of the high interest in Justin’s new series, This Is Us? Have you loved the trailer as much as we have and the millions of others from around the globe? We previously posted the trailer here, or make sure to go to the facebook link and up the views, then  comment below!

Thanks. Maybe this show will make it past the first season. At least I hope so for Justin’s sake.

The trailer is really good and the show seems to be a future hit! Justin is too talented to expect him to remain on Y&R. I have much love for daytime craft BUT the money isnt there. JH can always return to Y&R later in life and be a Victor recast!

He would be stupid to leave his day job sometimes shows last five episodes and our cancelled the pilot pick up means zip nights time schedules so much is involved the only show I tape on NBC is Blacklist simply because James Spader is fantastic. By the way the bad haircut was indeed a sarcastic joke but yes I have been disappointed in the writing for Adam I miss the dark side I truly do

k, your right, networks have a quick, sharp knife with these shows! However, this show is testing well. I dont tune into much primetime but will see what this is about. The last time I was fooled was Blood and Oil. Love Don Johnson but the show was horrific! But anyway, Justin is young, he could probably handle both shows for a while? He is featured in the show but is not a lead. That way, like you pointed out, he will have daytime to fall back on if his new show doesnt last.

Ok teachable moment Chris Engender first Adam grown up was not happy with the way his character was vein portrayed had nothing to do with a gay scene which lasted ten seconds ruined his career ! Then comes Michael Muhney very opiated very anal about his job they fire him six months after the gossip about HHK he is gone then we hire a very nice guy nice body turn him into s watered down version of Adam! Now are we all happy now you said Chris was a homophobic and you said Michael was a grouper! Deal with i

General Hospital

General Hospital Alum Annie Wersching Dead at 45

In very sad news on Sunday, actress Annie Wersching, who starred in the series 24, Bosch and Timeless, and portrayed Amelia Joffe on General Hospital, passed away this morning from cancer.  Annie was only 45-years-0ld.

Deadline broke the news of Annie’s death.  In a statement, Wersching’s husband, actor Stephen Full, shared: “There is a cavernous hole in the soul of this family today. But she left us the tools to fill it. She found wonder in the simplest moment. She didn’t require music to dance. She taught us not to wait for adventure to find you. ‘Go find it. It’s everywhere.’ And find it we shall. As I drove our boys, the true loves of her life, down the winding driveway and street, she would yell BYE! until we were out of earshot and into the world. I can still hear it ringing. Bye my Buddie. ‘I love you little family…’ ”

Wersching’s first major role came as Amelia Joffe on General Hospital.  She played the role from May to September of 2007.  Amelia came to Port Charles to seek revenge on Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco) and wound up lovers with Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard).

Later, she went on to star as Renee Walker in Seasons 7 and 8 of 24.  She also appeared in The Vampire Diaries, Runaways, Extant, and The Rookie.  One of her last roles was in Star Trek: Picard which came two decades after she made her screen acting debut in an episode of Star Trek: Enterprise.

Annie is survived by her husband and children children Freddie, 12; Ozzie, and Archie, 4.

Share your condolences and remembrances for Annie in the comment section.  But first, check out some scenes from her time on General Hospital below.

All My Children

Michael B. Jordan Recalls His Acting Start as All My Children’s Reggie in SNL Opening Monologue

Last night, Michael B. Jordan hosted Saturday Night Live.  The Creed star, who is the director of the upcoming Creed III due out in March, took to the stage to deliver his opening monologue, and right off the top he mentioned his beginnings as All My Children’s Reggie.

Jordan portrayed Reggie from 2003-2006 on the ABC soap opera (his character was eventually adopted by Jack Montgomery).

When Michael hit the stage, he shared: “Yesterday, I had a crazy full-circle moment. We pre-shot some videos for the show and when I got to the studio I realized it was the exact same place where I shot one of my first acting roles on the soap opera All My Children.

He then tossed to a clip of his 16-year-old self in which Reggie says, “sometimes the animal in me gets kind of crazy” and then howls life a wolf at the end of the scene. Back to the SNL stage, Jordan said mockingly, “I’m pretty sure I hit puberty mid-howl.”

Jordan ended his monologue by looping it back to his early acting days on AMC, sharing: “I just want to say, I’m so grateful to be standing on this stage. Sometimes, I can take myself a little too seriously but tonight, I’m going to have fun, I’m just going to go for it. And maybe, just maybe let the inner animal get a little crazy.”

Watch Michael’s opening monologue below.  Then let us know, what did you think of the the AMC Reggie clip reference? Do you recall Michael’s days on the ABC daytime drama series? Comment below.

Days Of Our Lives

Chrishell Stause Makes a Return to Days of our Lives

You just never know who you will find in purgatory (ah-hem) on Days of our Lives ! And now, in a surprise return, Chrishell Stause reprises her role of Jordan Ridgeway in all new episodes on the Peacock streaming soap opera.

In the latest promo released on Friday, Chrishell is seen in the ‘afterlife’ as Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow) runs into Jordan … her old arch-nemesis! Let the games begin.

Stause, who is one of the mainstays of the Netflix reality series, Selling Sunset, comes back to her old stomping grounds at DAYS just as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Kate have ‘died’ and have all landed in this white space which looks to be heaven, but really is hell in disguise, especially given Marlena’s latest visit with Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), who seemingly reveals herself to be possessed by Satan.

Chrishell made her DAYS debut back in August of 2013 and exited the series on March 9th of 2015.  Stause returned in 2019 until Jordan finally met her demise. She returned once again in 2020 in a series of flashbacks.

Watch the promo for next week’s DAYS below.

Now let us know, what do you think of Chrishell returning to DAYS to raise some hell for Kate and company? Comment below.
