During the event, Soap Opera Digest’s Stephanie Sloane, led viewers through a hilarious opening segment, which featured a walk through the sets with various cast members doing some very familiar soap tropes from: shirtless hunks, to bitch-slaps, a twist on a soapy monologue, and more.

Later, following John and Marlena’s nuptials on-air, Deidre Hall and Drake Hogestyn along with Mary Beth Evans, James Reynolds, and host for the segment, Martha Madison, chatted about the long-awaited wedding for Jarlena fans.

Then, DAYS executive producer, Ken Corday presided over the annual cake-cutting ceremony, honoring the cast and the crew for their accomplishments of keeping the show strong and continuing its legacy for 53 years and counting.

Several cast members took part in a special tribute honoring the late Peggy McCay (Caroline Brady), which was an emotional high point of the event. Eric Martsolf led several key members of the cast who worked with Peggy, as they shared remembrances of this one-of-a-kind actress.   Later, Galen Gering, Lauren Koslow, Nadia Bjorlin and Eric Martsolf did a little “Show and Tell” preview of some of their videos inside the new DOOL app.

Martha Madison returned to the backstage celebration where cast and crew took photos against the step and repeat for the series 53rd anniversary and the launch of the DOOL app.  Madison chatted with several cast and producers who stopped by including returning fan favorite, Matt Ashford (Jack Deveraux).

The facebook live event concluded when Stephanie Sloane walked into the celebration with the cast as they gave a big “Thank you” to the fans for keeping the show on the air, and telling them to check out the new DOOL app for all the exclusive, fun content now and in the days and months ahead.

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!
