It is different and that is a good thing.

It will be interesting to see it holds its steam.

I drifted away after 2 seasons. Just lost interest in the characters repeating the same lines and making the same silly decisions. But, having said that, I know what it’s like when you’re hooked on a series so a hearty congratulations to the actors and three cheers for all the fans.

I love the show. Oh good I get to see Justin Hartley for three more years.I hope he does some more comedies. Loved him in Bad Mom’s Christmas, he is one heck of a sexy and talented man.There have been times when the show has made me cry. I love Kevin.Who wouldn’t?I can feel his pain.Yes there are even times when he has made me cry. I can also relate to the depression story.It can be bad at times.Love Chrissy Metz too.

Story story story. Make us laugh, make us cry, make us care. And do not stay to long at the fair! Hopefully NBC/writers are writing with an ending in mind…it will be more of an impact knowing there is a road map. Beginning, middle,and an end. Keep us wanting more and loving the show as it ends the 6th season.

They shared: “Our mother was a loving and supportive wife, mother and grandmother.  Gracious and kind, she enriched the lives of all who knew her. We will miss her tremendously.”

Born in Chicago, Illinois on June 9, 1928, Bell was co-creator, along with her late husband William J. Bell, of two of daytime television’s most successful dramas: The Young and the Restless (Y&R), and The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B).

Bell’s career as a broadcast journalist began in Chicago, where she hosted and produced her own show, The Lee Phillip Show, for CBS TV for over 30 years. A pioneer in the evolution of the afternoon talk show format, Bell was a trailblazer in the exploration of timely social issues and concerns.  Additionally she produced and narrated numerous award-winning specials and documentaries covering social concerns such as foster children, the subject of rape, children and divorce, and babies born to women in prison, to name a few.. Bell interviewed heads of state such as Presidents Gerald Ford and Ronald Regan; film actors Judy Garland, Clint Eastwood and Jerry Lewis; musicians such as The Rolling Stones and The Beatles; television and stage stars such as Lucille Ball, Jack Benny and Oprah Winfrey; and many other politicians, authors, journalists, fashion designers and rock stars.

She was awarded 16 regional (Chicago) Emmy awards and numerous Golden Mike awards. Bell is also the recipient of the Alfred I. Dupont/Columbia University Award for the special The Rape of Paulette, the first program in Chicago to explore the issue.  In 1977, she was the first woman to receive the coveted Governors Award from the Chicago chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.  In 1980, she was named “Person of the Year” by the Broadcast Advertising Club of Chicago and the “Outstanding Woman in Communications” by the Chicago YMCA.  She also received the Salvation Army’s William Booth Award for her distinguished career in communications and social service. Bell won the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series as co-creator of The Young and the Restless in 1975 and was recipient of the Daytime Emmys’ Lifetime Achievement Award in 2007.
