I don’t think there will be a dry eye in the house with this episode. St. John , from all the outpouring from cast and friends, was truly an amazing and special man. He will be missed by them.

His character will be sadly missed by all us fans who only knew him as Neil.

Godspeed

eeeessshhhh..
why do they have the need to bring on the morbid?
Kristoff is on his journey, hopefully, not just resting in peace going nowhere.

But- to bring the sobbing and all that depressing stuff on screen is not cool.
I won’t be watching that episode..

I’m glad that the show will remember Kristoff/ Neil; it’s what we do in life when loved ones pass. Some people make it low key by having graveside services. I want the show to truly memorialize Neil.

I love him as a actor, and I’m glad to hear that they’re going to have his creator pass on the show. May he continue to rest in peace.

Just as your favorite soaps are kicking into high gear for November sweeps next week, comes the news that due to the House public impeachment hearings on President Donald Trump, daytime programming will endure several pre-mptions starting with the first two on Wednesday November 13th and Friday, November 15th.

CBS was the first network to announce their plans for their extensive coverage, and according to the Washington Post all other networks have followed suit.  By this move by the networks it gives the hearing some extra weight and exposure to the American voters and viewing audience.

So far, leading network coverage for CBS will be reportedly anchored by Norah O’Donnell and for ABC George Stephanopoulos.

On Wednesday, the hearings begin at 10am EST, the second is scheduled for Friday beginning at 11am EST.

William Taylor, the U.S. diplomat in the Ukraine, is scheduled to testify Wednesday and on Friday Marie Yovanovitch, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, is scheduled to testify.

The networks are expecting big numbers for covering the hearings, as they have in the past for impeachment proceedings and hearings.

No word yet how the soaps plan for you to see the episodes that don’t air at their regularly scheduled times, or if it shifts your soap viewing schedule by several days.
