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.

Cicely Tyson Recalls Her Time On ‘Guiding Light’ & Her Mother’s Obsession With Soaps In Final Interview on ‘Live with Kelly & Ryan’

The world is mourning the loss of legendary actress Cicely Tyson who died on Thursday at the age of 96.   On Wednesday, Tyson had taped what would be the final interview of her life with Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest for the morning show, Live with Kelly and Ryan.

Today on Friday, the show aired Tyson’s interview which was filled with so many moments made all the more poignant by her passing yesterday.

As soap fans know, Cicely was the first black actress to appear on the soaps, and on Guiding Light, back in 1966 in the role of Martha Frazier.  The character was married to Dr. Jim Frazier played first by Billy Dee Williams and then James Earl Jones.  Tyson’s role was eventually taken over by Ruby Dee.

 

During her interview with Kelly and Ryan, the hosts asked the Oscar-nominated actress and icon, best known for her roles in Sounder, The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman, Roots, and A Trip to Bountiful about her time on Guiding Light.  Cicely revealed that her mother was a huge fan of Guiding Light and the daytime soaps, and was obsessed with the characters and what was going to happen next.  As it turns out, according to the interview, Tyson’s mother’s favorite role of her daughter was Martha on Guiding Light.

Watch the clip from the interview below.

Then, share your remembrances on the extraordinary work of Cicely Tyson via the comment section below.

Guiding Light Alum, Michelle Forbes, Lands Role In ABC Hit Drama, ‘Big Sky’

David E, Kelley’s new drama, Big Sky has been a captivating hit series for ABC in its freshmen offering.  Former One Life to Live star, Ryan Phillippe (Ex-Billy Douglas), who was one of the leads of the series, was seemingly killed-off early on and the show has had more shocking twists and turns in the crime thriller.

For those who don’t know, Big Sky, follows private detective Cassie Dewell (Kylie Bunbury) and ex-cop Jenny Hoyt (Katheryn Winnick) who join forces to search for two sisters who have been kidnapped by a truck driver on a remote highway in Montana. But when they discover that these are not the only girls who have disappeared in the area, they must race against the clock to stop the killer before another woman is taken. After a winter break, Big Sky returned with new episodes this week.

Now, another soap alum has been added to the cast in the back-half of the first season.  Enter Michelle Forbes (Ex-Sonia/Solita, Guiding Light).  Michelle will take on the role of a mother named Margaret.

According to Deadline on Forbes’ Margaret: “She seems to be the picture-perfect ranch wife who knows her place, likes to bake and loves all of her children equally, but scratch the surface and there’s real steel beneath.”

So excited to see Michelle on Big Sky? Did you love her as Sonia/Solita on Guiding Light? Comment below.

This Week Mark Guiding Light’s 84th Anniversary with Grant Aleksander & Beth Chamberlin in Virtual Chat

On Monday, Guiding Light turned 84!  The historic soap opera started on radio before moving to broadcast television which count for the astounding total.

Guiding Light began its journey back on January 25, 1937 on NBC Radio, then moved to CBS Radio, and then eventually to CBS Television on June 30, 1952 (although it also continued on radio for a few years also till 1956).

So many fans mourned the cancellation of the series, and had to say goodbye to their beloved characters of Springfield when it went off the air on September 18th, 2009.

To mark this week’s 84th anniversary of the soap opera, The Locher Room is set to welcome two fan favorite stars, Grant Aleksander (Phillip  Spaulding) and Beth Chamberlin (Beth Raines), as they share their memories of working together and portraying one of Springfield’s favorite couples with former GL show publicist and now host, Alan Locher.

Circle this Thursday, January 28th at 3 p.m. EST / 12 p.m. PST to watch the livestream of the chat with Grant and Beth.
