On-Air On-Soaps has learned some additional details on the plans for upcoming soap opera game show that will be part of the line-up of the new online destination SudsvilleTV.com coming this fall!

Originally titled: The Amazing Soap Trivia Challenge, the series has been rebranded as Michael’s Amazing Soap Trivia Challenge, referring to the series host, Guiding Light favorite, Michael O’Leary (Ex-Rick Bauer).  

In the series concept, during each episode three soap fans armed with a wealth of soap opera trivia knowledge will vie for cash prizes and more!  But they won’t be appearing before a studio audience … no!  They will be playing the game right at Michael O’Leary’s front porch!

In the coming weeks look for how you can be chosen as one of the lucky fans to participate on this unique game show experience – think Pee-wee’s Playhouse meets “Millionaire” meets Newhart – hosted by the charming and oh-so-funny, O’Leary!

And don’t forget, to receive all timely updates on upcoming series, promotions, previews, and how you can become a contestant on Michael’s Amazing Soap Trivia Challenge make sure to sign up today at SudsvilleTV.com!

I guess a game show on Michael’s front porch might be as close as we can get to a Baur BBQ.

The 74th annual Primetime Emmys were handed out Monday night during a three-hour telecast on NBC and streaming on Peacock.

When the dust settled two former daytime stars, who have gone found much success in television and film, took home the gold in their respective categories.

Murray Bartlett (ex-Cyrus, Guiding Light) won the Emmy for his role as Armond in The White Lotus in the Best Supporting Actor in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie.

In his acceptance speech, Murray expressed many thanks: “To my P-Town family, I love you, to my partner Matt, thank you for being my sanctuary .. and finally I want to thank my mom all the way home in Australia for giving me the most wonderful foundation of unconditional love and inspiring me to believe that we can all do that for each other.”

Later in the evening, Amanda Seyfried (ex-Lucy, ATWT and ex-Joni , AMC) won the Best Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie for her performance in The Dropout.  In the Hulu limited series, which is based on the ABC News podcast of the same name, Seyfried portrays disgraced Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes.

In a major moment during the ceremony, Sheryl Lee Ralph won her first Emmy ever for her role in Abbott Elementary in the Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series category.

Ralph became only the second black actress to win in the supporting actress category in 35 years – the first being none other than Days of our Lives’ Jackée Harry (Paulina) who won for her performance in 1987 for 227.

After Sheryl sang when she hit the stage to accept the award, she clarified what she was singing about adding: “I’ve been singing that song for years because I think of myself as an artist as a woman, especially as a woman of color … I’m an endangered species. I don’t sing any victim song. I’m a woman. I’m an artist, and I know where my voice belongs. And there’s so many young actors, artists, even kids that think they know what they’re going to do in life, find your voice and put it where it belongs.”

In an historic Emmy-win, The Squid Game’s Lee Jung-jae became the first actor in a non-English series to win iLead Actor in a Drama Series category for his work in Netflix’s South Korean smash hit.

Lizzo shared: “I’m very emotional. The trophy is nice, but my emotion is for these people who are on the stage with me. The stories that they shared, they’re not that unique. They just don’t get the platform. Telling stories, let’s just tell more stories. When I was a little girl, all I wanted to see was me in the media, someone fat like me, Black like me, beautiful like me.  If I could go back and tell little Lizzo something, I’d be like, ‘You’re going to see that person, but Bitch, it’s gonna have to be you.’”

In the top show categories: Succession won Drama Series, Ted Lasso, Comedy Series and The White Lotus, Outstanding Limited Series. You can check out the full winners circle in all categories here.
