Yes!! And Yes!! IMO it’s not OLTL without Dorian and Viki. TPTB made a huge mistake when they let her go to Passions years ago but they recognized this and brought her back. Now we need to get Clint ad Bo too.

I agree. I heard Susan Lucci on QVC and I realized how much I missed hers and Viki’s voice. I’m 47, been listening the them all my life. Like losing family.

I am Very Happy that Robin Strasser has signed on for the OLTL reboot with PP!!! Dorian was a very important part of OLTL and was Greatly missed when she made her exit due to a back injury before OLTL left ABC. The Cramer women are a great group! Here’s to hoping that Kassie Depaiva will sign soon too!
And Dorian needs her Buddy Vicki to tangle with! Come back Erika Slezak!!

It’s great that she’ll be on the show. One of my fave OLTL storylines was Dorian and Joey. I know, a long time ago. I don’t watch OLTL anymore, but I def think the show needs Robin and Dorian!

The good news just continues to keep pouring in! Can’t wait to hear who else is signing on. And of course, with Clint and Dorian’s wonderful portrayers on board, I’m just biting my nails waiting for them to announce the next logical person to tent pole this show: Erika Slezak as Victoria Lord!

Long live the Queen! Love her. So glad Robin is home again where she belongs as Dorian.

I really hope OLTL gets Sleazak. She is perhaps the best actress on daytime tv and very credible. I know some will get mad at this but realistically I think she will return. she hasn’t had a lot offers for the last year. I think the saddest thin is that I know some hate Susan Lucci or Erica Kane or her acting – I suggest the problem might be Susan has become Erica on tv and her character is a bit out there. I have seen her and she can but the entertainment world wants Erica Kane not mousy Susan Lucci which we saw on Dancing with the Stars (which ironically shows the girl can act!) but I am not sure she can come back. She has two current contracts and I am not sure Devious Maids will spare her right now. One would hope they could make this a win win situation with Devious and AMC and heck, Deadly Affairs – Susan’s show about real life affairs that end in death. Susan is the queen of daytime – Deirdre, Melody, Robin, Erika, Genie, Kristian, Kelly et al are great divas but they do not have the star power of Susan Lucci. She is iconic and so identifiable with the AMC brand – they just have to do something to assure her comeback.

MBmomof3

I agree Skater Boy. I’m personally not a huge Erica Kane fan, but LaLucci is the face of the AMC brand IMO. AMC without Susan Lucci is like a PBJ with just the bread. Glad she has other gigs, but AMC needs her too. Hope they can make it so.

Erica Slezak is the best on daytime tv but maybe she will feel that she was slighted by PP and not come back. Maybe she just plain retired and is enjoying her life. I hope to see her back. As for SL, she irritated the heck out of me too but when she was not on AMC, it just was not the same. Hopefully Michael E. Knight will sign aboard. Any word on the AMC folk?

Best news ever! Now we need Vicki [ES]! They are essential.

I am so encouraged by this.

Rose

Dorian and Clint are back as definites. Now we need Vicki, David, Tea, Victor Jr., Tina, Bo (but I know that would be impossible since he retired.). There are way too many to list but there are some that we can do without. Starr stands out. Danelle would be great and Matthew. I would love to see that story line evolve. Oh my, I almost forgot Sean… definitely need him back on. I am so very fricken happy right now. I will take AMC and OLTL as a half hour show. Now the question is can we tape them or would we be able to buy the episodes on itunes.

Rose
Rose

think they will move the taping of AMC back to NYC?

Jim

Both shows will be taped in Stamford, Connecticut, a bedroom suburb of NYC so any necessary AMC actors who didn’t permanently relocate to LA could easily work on the shows.

Jim

Of course they need Erika back! And I hope they cast for Jack and Sam LORD. Jack can work at The Banner with Viki to spite “uncle” Todd.

Jo

I am so excited. I was really sad when OLTL went off. It would be great if all of the original cast would be back as well. I wonder when it will be back on. I heard it was for online only and not TV.

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!

Jacob Young Offers Up Thoughts On Rick and Maya’s Split On The Bold and the Beautiful

As fans of CBS Daytime’s The Bold and the Beautiful know, Daytime Emmy-winner Jacob Young (Rick Forrester) has been off the canvas for some time, and the actor had gone on recurring status with the series.

Young has been busy with other projects involving acting roles, his You Tube show, and music career, but certainly is open to a return to the soap opera.

But after the cover of this week’s Soap Opera Digest hit newsstands; which indicates that Rick and Maya have split with the return on-air of Karla Mosley (Maya) (who had been off the show for maternity leave), it clearly looks like the show is moving in a different direction.

Jacob took to Twitter to offer up his feelings on the matter tweeting: “I for one am incredibly sad and disappointed. Rick and Maya have split. (Love that would never die) I loved working with Karla Mosley.  it has been the highlight of my 21 year career in daytime. TRUST ME when I say your opinion matters.”

Since that posting, fans of the couple known as #Raya, have been voicing their thoughts and sharing photos of the on-screen duo.  Young responded to one in particular saying, “Who remembers this? Gosh, I miss Maya.”  In it,the posting read: “This is heartbreaking, Raya was the only example of what true love looks like on that soap!”

Previously, B&B has told the emotional and socially-relevant love story of a transgender woman falling in love with one of the men of the wealthy and renowned Forrester family.

So, what do you think of Jacob’s comments?  Do you want Rick back on the canvas?  What should then happen next for Maya with no Rick?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
