I do wonder if Steffy will have complications with her pregnancy because of her past miscarriage.Plus if there is a problem with the baby it could bring Liam and Steffy closer again.Also i don’t think B&B would bring Robin Givens on just to play a run of the mill doctor.

Yes. She was also the actress married to boxer Mike Tysons…tumultuous relationship and much publicized divorce.

Not sure why they’re bringing her in as the gynecologist. The actress currently playing the doctor is quite good.

Sarah Jessica Parker was on Square Pegs. I forgot the name of the other actress who wason the show with her. I completely forgot about the show Head of the Class. I don’t mean to sound morbid, but if they are getting yet another doctor for Steffie, you know it’s not going to be an easy pregnancy. With the return of Hope, I was wondering if their was going to be a Sally, Hope, Liam triangle in the works. I hope not. Hope and Sally seemed pretty civilized during their chat, so maybe not. But then again it was their first meeting so we’ll just have to wait and see. I was hoping Thomas would come back to Sally. But I guess he is to busy having happily ever after with Caroline in NY. I’m kind of liking the

new Hope. I think she has the potential to grow on me, which is something Ridge never did. I am still on the fence about Thorne. I always thought WH was the best Thorne, wwhich is why I was annoyed and happy at the same time when I heard Thorne was coming back, because of the replacement. Maybe in time he will grow on me. He does have gorgeous blue eyes. Happy viewing everybody

Forgiveness: I would love to see Liam forgive Steffy for the sake of the baby.
Little children donot ask to come here but the adult should be more thoughtful. Babies just need their parent to forget (forgive) the mess and to take care and love them.

Katie and Thorn I really like, I really was rooting for Katie and Bill, but that do not seem to be happening , Bring back Donna for Carter or Justin he really need someone.

Marcus Daisy and their baby Rose

Wyatt and Sally would make sparks, Ivy and Wyatt
Or Ivy and Carter would be different

Let Steffy and Liam reunite for the sake of the baby
It would be a good issue showing that a young couple would make great parents. Let the audience see the struggles etc. But when you have money you and pay for what you want.

Let us see forgiveness in the relationships.

Yes I would like to see Bill mother come into the picture.
Or put him and Katie back together and let them parent Will together or
It would really be nice to make Bill realize what he lost when he left Katie

I would like to see bill with Olivia, his sister Karen lover together or with Thorne if not Katie.

We are looking for better story line B and B

I would like to see BB deal with some real life issues

Thank you

Impeachment Hearings On Broadcast Networks Show Ratings Much Lower Than The Daytime Soap Operas They Are Preempting

In an infuriating article written by FOX news, off of a study from NewsBusters, the news outlet and others have come to the realization that all of us who want our soaps back on the air already know.  That is … that the network daytime dramas ratings are far better on a day-to-day basis than people tuning into network TV during the day to watch the impeachment hearings of Donald Trump.

Soap fans have been furious that in the afternoon network TV is pulling their soaps off their normal airtime across all coasts.  Daytime soap viewers feel that all of the 24-hour news cable outlets should be the the place to go to see the hearings during the day; as to not to preempt the drama on General Hospital, Days of our Lives, The Young and the Restless, and The Bold and the Beautiful.

Just for the record, the study via NewsBusters showed that on day one of the impeachment hearing the networks scored as such: CBS averaged 1.52 million, ABC  1.29 million viewers, and NBC averaged 1.26 million viewers.   Thursday’s were even worse with CBS averaging 1.4 million, ABC 1.2 million viewers and NBC had 1.1 million viewers.

Now compare that to the weekly daytime soap ratings and total viewers which while it ebbs and slows is still way about this.  According to the study: “The Young & The Restless” has been averaging 3.7 million viewers during the 2019-2020 season and The Bold & The Beautiful averages 3.15 million viewers. ABC’s General Hospital averages 2.15 million viewers while NBC’s Days of Our Lives averages 1.95 million viewers.”

Share your thoughts on the pre=emptions of your favorite soaps, and how the impeachment hearings are, of course, not bringing in higher number in the day-part via the comment section below.

General Hospital Releases Extended Promo “We Have To Lean Into Hope”

As the ABC daytime drama series, General Hospital, continues to be preempted by the impeachment hearings of President Donald Trump, and episodes are not being made available on any other platform at this time, two videos were posted in last 24 hours to the official General Hospital social media accounts.

To tide you over (while you are clamoring for all-new episodes of GH) the soap released an extended promo featuring the folks in Port Charles filled with lots of joy, hope, and love.  It’s main message, “We have to lean into hope” – as the series tells us to “sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride.”

Take a look at some of the reunions, hugs, and special moments featuring the Q’s, Corinthos, Cassadine and other clans in the promo below.

In addition, Finola Hughes (Anna) and Michael Easton (Finn) along with Jophielle Love (Violet) were featured in another video, where the key messaging to fans is that they are currently taping all-new episodes of GH, and that viewers should keep tuned ans posted to GH’s social channels for updates on when new episodes of GH will return.

As of late, GH has been on the upswing in the ratings, too.  So, it’s always frustrating for everyone when weeks of preemptions hit the daytime viewers  experience to enjoy the on-going stories of the soaps.

‘Ambitions’ Canceled By OWN After One Season

After an excellent first season of drama and backstabbing, the soapy nighttime Ambitions has been canceled by OWN.

The cable outlet offered up this statement from OWN President, Tina Perry: “We’re thankful to Will Packer, Jamey Giddens and the entire cast and crew of Ambitions for their creativity and hard work on the show. Every week they delivered great drama, intrigue and a lot of fun storytelling.  We look forward to continue working with Will Packer and his talented team of collaborators in the future.”

The series which starred Robin Givens as Stephanie Lancaster Carlisle was hailed as a multigenerational family saga centered around classic soap character, Stephanie, who finds herself going head to head with some of the most powerful and deceitful players in the city of Atlanta and we learn she can play deceitful like nobody’s business … too!

Ambitions was produced by Will Packer Media in association with Lionsgate and Lionsgate-owned distributor Debmar-Mercury. Packer was executive producer. Arkadie was executive producer/showrunner. Writer Jamey Giddens and Will Packer Media’s Sheila Ducksworth also served as executive producers.

Givens took to Instagram and shared her disappointment on the cancellation. “mood 🙁 found out last week #Ambitions wouldn’t be returning for a second season ….”
