Daytime TV is struggling to stay alive because it stinks..
No soaps will ever be brought back to network TV no network wants the financial burden..
I’m happy that PP has kept 2 soaps from the soap opera graveyard.. 🙂

Daytime TV days are numbered, some day it will be full of infomercials and cheap talk shows.. There is no quality in daytime TV but the soaps and they are very expensive to bring to air..

You are a very right…sometimes i disagree with you but you are right here…none of the three networks will ever revive an old soap or introduce a new one…too costly…Daytime tv will never be as good as it was in the 1960s and 70s when soaps were king and if you didnt like them, there were plenty of alternatives…except for the soaps i rarely watch anyting else during the day…

Never a fan when networks have a hand in the creative end of producing a daytime drama– but I guess at least she has some soap experience so maybe she be more interested in creating the best product instead of the cheapest one. Don’t know how she and JFP get along, but hopefully she can reign her in and make sure they don’t destroy what took Bill Bell a lifetime to build.

Steve kent’s firing will do for a starters. Then fire angelica mcdaniel, jfp Bradley bell. Move Kay Alden back to y and r and put josh griffith as co headwriter. B&B i dont know if the best writer could save your soap since most of your core cast is gone. I love Katherine Kelly lang as an actress but Brooke does not need anymore men.

I think B&B should expand to one hour and Y&R should be
reduced to a half hour.

They make too much money off of YR. It’s been their Daytime cash cow and the cornerstone of their #1 Daytime lineup for over 25 years.

It isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.

Days and GH may need to step it up if they want to stick around.

4everDAYS

DOOL and GH have been stepping it up. What is hurting
them are the good ratings for YawneR. When people
see Y&R is #1 in the ratings, they think it must be #1 in
entertainment. Y&R is stinking things up for the others.
YawneR needs to step it up before it kills the chances of
the good soaps!!! Remember, there are some non soap
fans willing to give a soap a try. Chances are, they’ll
view the #1 rated soap first and then no other, thinking
they all are bad because of the sloppy Y&R!

Y&R is #1 in ratings and stinch! My septic tank smells
better than YawneR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don’t know what a septic tank smells like so I’m not sure that’s a good analogy.

Regardless of how you feel about YR, it’ll continue to be the #1 show for a while…unless Phelps kills it.

I hope this Margot chick handles her.

Nathalie Kelley Says She Is Not Returning To DYNASTY For Season 2

In a surprise admission during an interview with E Online, one of the core members of CW’s Dynasty reboot, Nathalie Kelley revealed she is not filming season 2 of the primetime sudser when it resumes filming next month.

Kelley plays Blake’s (Grant Show) wife, Cristal, who ended the season one cliffhanger in a precarious predicament after being shot by Claudia Blaisdel (Brianna Brown), while the Carrington mansion went up in flames, as well.

Kelley tells E! “I won’t be returning for Season 2.”  She went on to say as of the fate of Cristal:  ” Is it a coma? Is it death? … I actually don’t know. But I know that I’m not going to Atlanta in July, that I’m staying (in Los Angeles) … I’ve got my life back.”

Dynasty returns for its all-new season beginning on Friday, October 12th.

So, disappointed to hear there will be no Nathalie on season 2 of Dynasty?  How do you think they will write Cristal out of the story:  Coma … her body found will not be found … or is she truly dead?  Share your theories in the comment section below.

ABC Officially Picks Up ‘Roseanne’ Spinoff, ‘The Conners’ With No Roseanne Barr Participation

Word on late Thursday afternoon is that ABC has now officially moved forward and gave a pick-up to the Roseanne spinoff series, The Conners.   

As viewers know, there had been speculation that the series would revolve around Sara Gilbert’s character of Darlene, but now the other concept with the entire family in the title is the direction the new series will go (although it is said to be the “working title” of the series.)

The Conners received a ten episode order and will make the fall TV schedule, and will reside on Tuesday night’s on ABC at 8PM.

Roseanne Barr’s controversial tweets led to the network’s swift decision to cancel her series.

In the new deal, Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in The Conners after reaching a settlement with series producer, Tom Werner.

The Conners will feature the rest of the Roseanne core cast including: John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, and Michael Fishman.

According to Deadline:  It is unclear how exactly Barr’s character will be written off but ABC describes it as “a sudden turn of events.”  On the new show, after a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family – Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. – grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns – with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails.

In a statement ABC commented: “The Conners’ stories demonstrate that families can always find common ground through conversation, laughter and love. The spinoff will continue to portray contemporary issues that are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago.”

A major turning point to greenlight the series came when the fact that the new series does not feature Barr’s character Roseanne Conner, which rights to which she is said to maintain, paved the way for an agreement with no Barr.

So, glad to hear The Conners will continue sans Roseanne? Comment below.
