Nighttime soap fans who love the fresh, hot, young and talented faces of the CW network got some good news today when the CW announced its fall lineup and schedule! The CW will plan to strategically roll-out its new fall season starting in early October 2012, a bit later than the other networks.  The reason we hear is to shorten the season and to play fewer reruns and keep the programming original and fresh.  There are also several shifts in the schedule.

90210 and Gossip Girl got its pick-up for another season and will air on Monday nights, while Vampire Diaries will be on Thursdays.   On-Air On-Soaps recurring podcast guest-host an Dillon Casey’s series, Nikita where he plays Agent Sean Pierce got picked-up and will air on Friday’s    Here is what the network said about Nikita!   “Season two of this sexy and suspenseful series saw dramatic upheavals in the life of rogue superspy Nikita (played by international action star Maggie Q), as she continued her crusade against Division, the agency that took her from the streets and forced her to kill for the government.  Nikita and Michael set out to correct the wrongs of Division… only to discover that Alex, Nikita’s protégé, has joined Division in order to avenge her father’s death.  When Nikita helps her achieve her vendetta, the trio is once again united, and a new, powerful team of heroes is formed. These include punk rock hacker Seymour Birkhoff, brilliant CIA analyst Ryan Fletcher, and ex-Navy SEAL Sean Pierce.  Nikita began her journey by searching for a home she never had, only to find a home she never expected:  Division itself.  The series stars Maggie Q as Nikita Mears, Shane West as Michael, Lyndsy Fonseca as Alex, Aaron Stanford as Birkhoff, Dillon Casey as Sean Pierce, Noah Bean as Ryan Fletcher, with Melinda Clarke as Amanda and Xander Berkeley as Percy.”

And another daytime favorite, Wilson Bethel’s (Ex-Y&R) series Hart of Dixie will be on Tuesday’s ,and here is what the network had to say about this show! “Rachel Bilson leads a stellar ensemble cast in this fish-out-of-water comedic drama about small-town living, big-city attitudes and complicated love triangles.  Set in the lovely town of BlueBell, Alabama, where the neighbors take care of one another, the mailman knows your name, there’s a parade every Tuesday…and people still aren’t quite used to Dr. Zoe Hart.  Hart Of Dixie — it’s where you want to be.  Rachel Bilson as Zoe Hart, Jaime King as Lemon Breeland, Wilson Bethel as Wade Kinsella, Cress Williams as Lavon Hayes, Tim Matheson as Brick Breeland and Scott Porter as George Tucker.”

So happy that Gossip Girl is back !!!

Happy that TVD will be back for season 4. Disappointed that TSC was canceled only because I’m a big Gale Harold fan. As far as the new shows go, only time will tell if anything really catches my eye.

Sad about TSC being canceled, but I am glad about TVD and HOD renewal, when I doubted they would be. Nikita and 90210 should have ended they are boring and have the same storyline each episode, not to mention low ratings. And as for GG, I like the show and am glad about the renewal, but the writing has been so poor lately. Chair and Derena need to be endgame, but I want to see Dair work things out, at least as friends, first.

Several of Cameron’s friends, and former or current co-stars, also commented on the photos and the BTS view, such as soap icon Susan Lucci (ex-Erica, All My Children) with whom Cameron worked closely with as his Pine Valley alter-ego, Ryan Lavery.  In fact, as AMC fans know, at one point Ryan and Erica were an item. Lucci wrote, “SOooo handsome, talented, charming, and kind—that’s Cameron🥰👏👏👏”

Susan Lucci Reveals She Was Contacted to Gauge Interest in Becoming ‘The Golden Bachelorette’

All My Children icon and Daytime Emmy Lifetime Achievement honoree, Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane), apparently was being considered for the lead in the first-ever season of The Golden Bachelorette.

Making this all the more intriguing is Lucci admitted she really enjoyed The Golden Bachelor’s season and has become a fan and thus a part of ‘Bachelor Nation.’

Although former ‘Golden Bachelor’ contestant Joan Vassos was the ultimate pick by ABC and the producers of The Golden Bachelorette, Lucci told PEOPLE that the show reached out to her people.

Susan shared, “I believe that they contacted my publicist and it wasn’t for me.” She added, “I watched The Golden Bachelor, and I really enjoyed watching The Golden Bachelor. This is a new addiction for me.”

And a few years back. her assistant got Lucci hooked on The Bachelor, as she expressed on the dating series, “I was immediately engaged. I cared. I wanted to know more about these people.”

The outlet shared that they did reach out to ABC and Warner Bros. about potential interest in Susan. However, they did not respond. A source then told the publication that Lucci was not offered a role.

For Susan, finding a second chance at love is an interesting proposition; given that she had the most incredible and enduring 53-year marriage to her late husband and manager, Helmet Huber, who passed away at 84-years-old back in March of 2022.

So, what do you think of Susan being contacted to see if she was interested in becoming ABC’s ‘Golden Bachelorette’ for the senior dating-reality series? Comment below.
