Nelson Branco's new weekly "Soap Opera Unscensored"!

Suds Report journalist, Nelson Branco is back in an all new platform for his infamous columns featuring a weekly roundup of the hottest news in soaps, along with stories, interviews, humor, gossip and analysis.

Each Friday or Monday fans get download his new E-book version of his column called,  Soap Opera Unscensored.  The cost is $1.99, but Branco hopes to make it a subscription based feature in the very near future.

Branco stated about his new venture, “I’ve been getting a lot of feedback from readers saying how much they missed my Suds Reports, etc, and urged me to re-imagine my columns somewhere else. And since I’m still on the receiving end of a lot of news and gossip, I decided to not throw it all to waste. Thanks to the technology out there, I’m able to publish it myself and have Soap Opera: Uncensored distributed to multi-media formats. My first issue sold remarkably well; way above my expectations and without any promotion… so I’m very happy. I’m also in the process of publishing several soap opera-related books so stay tuned!”

Nelson could have so much more promise if he wouldn’t be bashing others that cover soaps. His comments towards Daniel Goddard and Goddard’s fans were insulting. I think those that talk to him (i.e. Crystal Chappell) would be wise to look out for Nellie’s streak and fear his reactions. He’s quickly self imploding.

Who would pay money to read his smut? All the important news gets out eventually. I’d rather get my info a week later from an honest, reliable and well-intentioned columnist/journalist than him.

Nelson should take a page out of your playbook, Michael. While I find your reports positive and relatively unbiased, Nelson comes off as snarky and hateful, and it’s just a turnoff.

I’m sorry but i’m not paying for it either when i’m sure i already have read a lot of it already. I miss his TV Guide Canada column, that was always fun. Wish that was still going. It’s just not the same anymore.

Im not paying for a column especially when the comments are so biased and there are so few soaps left.

No one covers the fact that Y&R is going the drain and JFP who killed the spirit of GH to make it a mob festival starring her friends did far worse than the rise in GH under a new producer. She is at it again bringing on her friends and divas and throwing out far superior talent in hordes. As with the talent that is leaving so am I. I disliked what Burton did on GH, duller than dull and the diva act in addition to the lies regarding his departure. I dislike that JFP would throw out Stephen Nichols and possibly place her former or existing lover in a role. She is rather disgraceful. This woman killed off the Quartermaines and deserves that same round of disgust. I can no longer look at the mediocre and new egomanical characters she has placed on Y&R. Listening to Tyler makes one run for to change the channel. There just is nothing left. I m sorry JFP killed another soap. All the soap columnists singing praises of Burton and changes cannot spin enough to make me want to watch under these circumstances. JFP is no Bill Bell and worse not even a fair nor open mind

General Hospital Set To Pay Tribute To The Late Susan Brown

2018 has taken with it some beloved soap opera veterans.  One of them was GH fan favorite, Susan Brown, who died at 86 of Alzheimer’s at the end of August.

GH viewers remember Susan’s performances as Dr. Gail Adamson Baldwin.  Gail was Monica’s (Leslie Charleson) best friend, and eventually she married Lee Baldwin (the late Peter Hansen) and was a stepmother to Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner).

Kin took to Twitter last week and revealed that General Hospital taped a tribute to Susan that will be seen in an upcoming episode.

In a tweet, he shared, “A tribute show to Susan shot in the can airing soon!”

With GH’s tape schedule we would presume that sometime in January we will be seeing how GH addresses Susan’s passing and thus the fate of Gail.

So, are you glad to hear GH will be doing something very special to honor Susan?

Do you hope that there are major emotional scenes within it for Kin Shriner and Leslie Charleson?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Network Exec, Angelica McDaniel On Y&R’s Staying Power: “We Have This Award-Winning, Ratings-Generating, Money-Making Show, And It Really Adds Value To CBS.”

This week, The Young and the Restless celebrated 30 years as the number-one rated daytime soap opera.  That is a streak of 1,560 weeks in the top spot.

Angelica McDaniel, executive vp daytime programs and syndicated program development at CBS, spoke to the Hollywood Reporter on what has made this remarkable run; attributing it to strong storytelling and a cast that includes several beloved veterans who have been around the entire time.

The executive noted that while other soaps over the years have fallen by the wayside, and even though we are down to only four surviving network soap operas, that Y&R will be around with no end in sight.

McDaniel stated, “We have this award-winning, ratings-generating, money-making show, and it really adds value to CBS. We expect it be a part of our lineup in the future.”

She also added, “The Young and the Restless has some of the best actors in the industry — not in soaps, not in daytime, but in television. We have iconic, legacy characters that have been on our show for decades. Melody Thomas Scott will be celebrating her 40th year on the show in February. Peter Bergman just reached his 30th anniversary in November. Eric Braeden started in 1980. We just have an incredible arsenal of actors who are so talented and play these characters so well that you don’t even realize they’re characters. They become people who are part of your life, part of your daily existence.”

As for the continual investment and ways the audience watches the show on various platforms, McDaniel expresed: “The great thing about daytime television is we have loyal, passionate viewers, and they really like to tune in day and date. They want to stick with their stories and see what’s happening today. … Having said that, The Young and the Restless is also one of the top streamed shows on CBS.com. As trends evolve, we are where our viewers are, and we’re making shows readily accessible so they can get their fix and follow their stories.”

So, what do you think about Y&R? Will it remain if and when all other soaps have come to theirconclusion? Do you think it will continue on for years to come, given its position at number #1? Comment below!
