On hand for the Los Angeles ceremony today were Y&R stars, Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki) and Kristoff St. John (Neil), along with Y&R and B&B co-creator, Lee Phillip Bell, as well as B&B cast members, Don Diamont (Bill) and Heather Tom (Katie), plus ‘Price is Righ’t host, Drew Carey.  Watch the news segment via CBS Los Angeles here.

CBS soaps anyway, way way way overrated ! #Baffled

give the benefit of a doubt

when Billy Miller and Michael Muhney left or were erroneously fired… their final scenes aired January, 2014

which is ALMOST 3 YEARS AGO

Y&R has never recovered

save for Justin Hartley… and that’s out of sight out of mind

Y&R is #1. Muhney is unemployed. Hunter King has two jobs,. Daytime and Primetime. That’s the rreality. Divine order.

———- Question;

How many soaps were there during the past 30 years?????

And- was there not one, not one, that was better than Y&R during 30 yrs, if even for a year?.

Why has there never ever been another soap at the top?
Why has there not ever been 2 years out of 30 that another soap was on top?

Last question;
What are the odds during 30 years of many soaps not one was ever atop of Y&R, for even a year or two? what are the odds .

List of U.S. daytime soap opera ratings, wiki ( type in )

gives every listing and ratings of every serial

WOW

gobsmacked to the gills

As The World Turns… turned an reigned for quite a NUMBER @ #1. YES

which is my only #1 soap… evah

you could clearly see the reign… of GH in the 80s
and yawn… nevertheless… groan Y&R took

so… YES… @su to not quite answer your question… but the whole enchilada and cake

my DAYS had it’s best years… (ratings wise ) from 1995 -2003 always in the top 3

su0000
su0000

but– the fact is;
During 30 years only Y&R was #1 ..
No other soap in 30 years was #1, not even once, not even for 1 year.
Y&R holds the record of being #1 for 30 years.

what are the odds of that… huh

oltl was great in its final year and with ratings up-had it not been cancelled it might had hit number one!!!

I think the last soap that was #1 was Days when Jack and Jennifer got married.

Fabulous episodes. Still some of my favorite.

The first time they got married. 🙂

Congrats.

I don’t think the CBS soaps have really been number 1 for 30 years. I just think even when the soaps weren’t good, people watched out of habit.

There were certainly times when Another World, Santa Barbara, One Live to Live, General Hospital, and Days of Our Lives deserved to be number 1, but weren’t. Only naming soaps I’ve watched.

The numbers are more accurate now than they’ve ever been because we have reall time counts and real reporting instead of extrapolation and polling. GH is my favorite but, Y&R is numer one. It’s not debatable. It’s just the truth.

I’m not debating the numbers. I meant, substance–I don’t think CBS soaps have been the best soaps for 30 years straight.

Let’s not forget CBS DAYTIME has been number one for 30 years– in those 30 years there were other soaps on that network that help them achieved that feat– it wasn’t all just Price is Right, Y&R and B&B–

Nathan Fillion Talks His Start On OLTL On ‘The View’ With Whoopi Goldberg

On Thursday’s episode of ABC’s The View, Nathan Fillion visited the show promoting his series, The Rookie.  But during the beginning of his conversation with Whoopi Goldberg, he talked about what he learned from his humble beginnings in show business as Joey Buchanan on the beloved One Life to Live.

Of course, OLTL fans recall that Nathan was involved in a romantic storyline with Llanview icon, Robin Strasser (Dorian) and played the on-screen son to another icon, Erika Slezak (Viki).

Fillion shared about this time on One Life: “Everything I did and everything I do I learned on that show.  I never speak poorly on daytime … it was such a warm kind place to be.   I learned everything there.  I don’t know where an actor can go and work with people that have worked in the business for 25, 35, 40 years, and I had no idea what i’m doing …and they said, ‘no problem here is what you do’.  So, it was very good people.”

Goldberg also alluded to that she “missed the soaps” meaning All My Children and One Life to Live that shot right where they are in New York City at the ABC studios on 66th and 67th street.

Watch Nathan talk his early career and more with the ladies of The View below.  Then, let us know what you think about the sentiments he share from his time at One Life to Live via the comment section.

Y&R’s Thad Luckinbill To Produce ‘Postscript’ The Film Adaptation of Sequel To “P.S. I Love You”

We all know that Thad Luckinbill (Ex-J.T Hellstrom, The Young and the Restless) wears many hats in the entertainment industry.  He acts, he writes, he produces, he sings … is there anything that this talented guy doesn’t do?

Now comes word that Luckinbill’s production company (with his brother Trent and Molly Smith), Black Label Media, in conjunction with Alcon Entertainment, has secured the rights to the the novel Postscript and will turn it into a motion picture.

Postscript is the recently released sequel to Cecelia Ahern’s 2004 debut novel, P.S. I Love You.  The original movie starred two-time Oscar winner, Hilary Swank as Holly who loses her husband tragically when he dies from a brain tumor.  Then, a grieving Holly discovers that her husband has left behind 10 letters designed to help Holly overcome her sorrow and transition to a new life.

According to Deadline, who broke the news of this film deal: In, Postscript (which hit book stores this week in the U.S.) the story picks up Holly seven years after her husband’s death with Holly having peacefully moved on with her life.  However, when Holly’s sister asks her to tell the story of the “PS, I Love You” letters on her podcast — she does so reluctantly, not wanting to reopen old wounds. Soon after the episode airs, people start reaching out to Holly, and they all have one thing in common: they’re terminally ill and want to leave their own missives behind for loved ones.”
