Really? They can’t do better than Sheryl? She is just disgusting with her lewd remarks to/about every good looking man there. Can’t stand her and was hoping TPTB would have sense enough to find someone with CLASS!

I completely agree. That is the main reason I don’t watch The Talk. I pity every male guest that goes on that show because I know darn right well, the minute he walks over to greet Sheryl she is going to be all over him like a cheap suit. It sickens me.

I hope the men all wear bibs, because she will be drooling all over them.
She really is a smart, funny person, but wish she had a little more class and self control around men.

I hope they do their homework and know who’s who and on what show they appear. Less time about them and more time on the daytime drama stars for me, please. Let’s see some clips and memories and skip the silly production numbers.

Why must the Academy always resort to hosts that no one even cares about when they could have daytime drama’s actors/actresses host the show? Are they that ashamed of daytime drama’s that they’d rather have “big name” folks host the show instead of someone who isn’t that well known?

Daytime Emmys award shows should be on TV
Just like all award shows. It is just as important as all the other award shows. This is not fair to all the fans. Not everyone can watch on a website or computer or phone.
To really get the full enjoyment of the award, winners, and entertainment you need to be able to watch it on TV.
The President of NATAS doesn’t care about the fans, the audience who watches theses shows to put it on TV.

I would rather watch an ant poop than watch one second of Cheryl Underwood!

Cheering on Maurice Benard and Max Gail for leading and supporting actors. They carried the best story on daytime last year. A new great acting duo was born.

All this Sheryl Underwood hate is so evil and unnecessary. She’s funny and a soap watcher. Your insides are dirty.

‘Edge of Night’ Mainstay Forrest Compton Dies Following Complications From COVID-19

Sad news to report this Monday.  The longtime star of CBS’ and then ABC’s The Edge of Night, Forrest Compton. has passed away due to complications from COVID-19. Forrest died on Sunday at the age of 94.

His death was reported and confirmed by Compton’s friends and an article in the Shelter Island Reporter.

As Edge of Night and longtime daytime fans know, Forrest played Monticello’s district attorney, Mike Karr.  He played this key role from 1971 until the show’s cancellation in 1984.  The show was originally titled “The Edge of Night” and eventually just became “Edge of Night”.   The soap which was steeped in murder mysteries ran on CBS from 1956–1975 and on ABC from 1975–1984,   In addition, Forrest along with his on-screen wife, Ann Flood (Nancy Karr) were one of the most popular duos in daytime.

Not only did Compton appear on EON, but he also had soap roles on As the World Turns, One Life to Live and All My Children.   In primetime, Forrest was best known for his role on Gomer Pyle: USMC opposite  Jim Nabors and Frank Sutton as Lieutenant Colonel Edward Gray.

In a heartwarming story where fan meets actor and helps him out (according to the Shelter Island Reporter) Compton was only slated to appear in two episodes a week for the next 13 weeks on The Edge of Night, when he needed an apartment in New York City near the studio, so when he heard about a one-bedroom on East 72nd he went to see Al, the super.  Forrest later learned that Al was such a devotee of  The Edge of Night that he locked his office door every day at 2 p.m. to watch uninterrupted. When Forrest mentioned that he had just been hired to play Mike Karr, the super said, “You’re getting that apartment.”’

Sharon Gabet who starred as Raven on Edge of Night, posted on Facebook, a tribute and remembrance of her former co-star: “Woody, as he was affectionately known to all of us on The Edge of Night, was a master professional, hilarious, smart, kind and gentle. I spoke with him a couple years ago on his birthday and he was active and happy in his retirement. Rest in peace, Woody, and give hugs and kisses to Larkin, Lois, Dennis, Nick, Joel, Irving and all the other EDGE alumni up there.  THE story about Woody. He was on EON when they were LIVE. It was brutal, but Woody was one of the best “straight face” men in the business. So he is doing a scene with Nancy his wife (the glorious Ann Flood – another “straight face” master). He walks in the kitchen and sits down and his line was supposed to be “Gee, it’s hard to get up in the morning.” as Nancy gave him his coffee. Instead, Mike Karr says on national TV, “Gee it’s hard to get IT up in the morning, Nancy.” There was pandemonium among the crew during the commercial break as you can imagine.”

Now below, watch the opening title sequence fro the The Edge of Night over the years, many of which feature Forrest as Mike Karr at the very opening or at the end as one of the series most well-known and beloved characters.

However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the production shutdown left them with only 18 episodes tht could be completed.

Reports also note that episode 19 was partially shot and that footage of that unfinished episode will be cut into the finale.

As to what happens with the character of Jamal Lyon played by Jussie Smollett, who everyone knows ran into significant trouble with the law; on last reports executives said he would not be back for the final episodes of the series, although there has still have been mentions of the character throughout season 6.
