When Miles Gaston Villanueva (Ex-Luca Santori) was wrapping up his run on The Young and the Restless, he was also appearing in a workshop production of a new play, God Looked Away, working alongside none other than Academy Award and two-time Tony winner Al Pacino and two-time Tony and Daytime Emmy winner,Judith Light (Ex-Karen, OLTL)!  In fact, On-Air On-Soaps interviewed Miles during his final rehearsals to get the skinny on his part and working with two of the most talented and beloved performers in the business.

Now came word on Monday, that God Looked Away will now be playing for a few weeks at the reknowed Pasadena Playhouse, in Pasadena, California in the next leg of the production of this new work.  The play written by Dotson Rader is about the life of playwright Tennessee Williams.   As told to us by Villanueva, “The story in the play gives you a peek at Tennessee Williams trying to mount one of his plays, and the struggles he goes through to produce, and write a play in his later years.”

Villanueva took to social media to announce the exciting news that tickets are available to see the production: “So. It’s official. Starting January 2017, I will be back on the big stage, starring opposite Al Pacino in a new play, GOD LOOKED AWAY, at the Pasadena Playhouse in LA. It is the next installment after our beautiful workshop production over the summer. I am over the moon. Al and the entire cast and team are magic.”

Wow, what an opportunity for Miles. To me, Al Pacino is our greatest living American actor. He continually challenges himself and the last ten years (when contemporaries like Robert De Niro are just phoning in many of their performances) have allowed him to do the best work of his career. ANGELS IN AMERICA; PHIL SPECTOR; YOU DON’T KNOW JACK; DANNY COLLINS…all brilliant work. And Judith Light has redefined her career in the past few years as well. Miles is probably on cloud nine!

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.

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 ….”
