The Talk’s Sheryl Underwood will become a five-time host of the Daytime Emmy Awards, although this time going solo, as CBS and NATAS have announced today that she will handle the duties for the upcoming 48th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards.

The CBS broadcast will airs on Friday, June 25 at 8 p.m. ET on the network as well as streaming live on Paramount Plus.

According to Variety, “Underwood will emcee the show from Los Angeles, where a stage has been set up for the show, but the pre-taped broadcast will also include presenters and honorees from their own show studios and homes to accept their awards. Although many of the key daytime drama, game and talk show awards will be presented on the telecast, additional winners will be announced simultaneously on Twitter, via the @DaytimeEmmys handle.”

The Daytime Emmys are presented to programs broadcast between 2 a.m. and 6 p.m.  The show includes content that originally premiered in calendar-year 2020, and is judged by a pool of peer professionals from across the television industry.

So, what do you think of Underwood being named the solo host of this year’s Emmy broadcast? Comment below.

I was looking forward to finally seeing the Daytime Emmys after them not being shown on network tv for the past few years. Now that I see who the host is, not so much.

They were on CBS last year, but I agree about the host.

OMG, she can entertain herself, at least she won’t be able to hang all over every male that comes within her reach, as they won’t be there.

I just wish that they’d have an actor/actress from each of the daytime drama’s host the Emmys but that will never happen again.

Yes that would be great and I don’t know why they don’t do it. The hosts of the Talk have never impressed me.

Awful. I don’t know why CBS is touting her so much. I will record and fast forward through her. She’s not as fabulous as she thinks she is.

Because if they don’t they will be accused of racism. Why dont they let some of the fabulous African American actors from Y&R and B&B host. They would be fantastic.

SOB, I have to keep my TV on mute! I wouldnt watch it at all BUT I do want to see the tribute of Alex Trebek and Larry King. I hope Underwood has nothing to do with this part!

I’m not happy about this choice either. She claims to be a superfan of soaps but true fans don’t drool over and clearly embarrass soap actors when they visit the show. It’s just not how grownups behave. There were better candidates.

Hi, hope you are well. This thing with Sheryl is she is such a smart and educated woman, then why hasn’t she learned how to curb her enthusiasm?

I know. I’m embarrassed for her when she does that. I can tell some of the male actors that come on the show are a bit put off by that. Is she that desperate for a greeting?

Bless her heart. She does show enthusiasm for the soaps, but sometimes she has been way too chatty and that has distracted from the clips and speeches from our soap stars. I hope she does better this time around.

She ain’t “all she’s cracked up to be”. Don’t amount to much. OOGLING over the past Males to sit at The Talk table was sickening. And the camera man gets so close you can see nosehairs….. We just aren’t impressed with that nor her gums.
GoT It???
NOT entertainer nor impressive enough to “run tbe show”.
Sheryl should host a childrens show…WITHOUT the presence of children! js

IF she’s hosting I’m NOT watching.
Won’t watch her on TT either.
You should realize this “cancel” works both ways. We can watch other National TV stations who are just true entertainment.

OMG!
If this is the best they can do for a host,I rather it not even be televised!
I can not think of a more obnoxious host for this show!
She does nothing but drool over all the men on the show and make sexual innuendos!
Why is that OK???
If it was a man doing it, they’d never host another show, but Sheryl gets away with it????
No thank you!

I was looking forward to the emmys but not now. Instead of having her host, why don’t they have some soap favs like they used to i.e. Peter Bergman, Melody Thomas Scott, Eric Braden, etc…. They would do a much better job. Come on CBS you can do better.

‘Ryan’s Hope’ Star and Soap Vet, John Gabriel Has Passed Away at 90

Heartbreaking news Monday morning and to start the week. Beloved Ryan’s Hope soap veteran, John Gabriel (Ex-Dr. Seneca Beaulac) has died.

His daughter, actress Andrea Gabriel (Lost) shared the news of his passing via her Instagram account.

In her statement, Andrea shared: “It is with an unspeakably heavy heart that I share the news of my father’s passing.  John Gabriel was my hero, my role model, and my champion, but above all, my daddy… I will love you forever.”

Gabriel’s run on Ryan’s Hope was in two parts.  He started with the ABC daytime drama series in 1975 and stayed till 1985.  He then returned from 1988 to 1989.  Seneca’s love story with Jillian Coleridge (the late Nancy Addison Altman) was often front and center on the series.

As soap fans know, John was married to another former soap star, Sandy Gabriel (Ex-Edna Thornton, All My Children and  Ex-Christine Venet Ryan’s Hope), and is also survived by his other daughter Melissa and their two grandsons.

Throughout his daytime soap career, Gabriel received one Daytime Emmy nomination back in 1980.  He also appeared in roles on General Hospital, Loving, The Bold and the Beautiful, Generations and Days of our Lives.

In primetime he was known for his roles on Gilligan’s Island, Mary Tyler Moore Show.  John was also an accomplished singer performing on many variety and talk show through the years.

In 1995, Gabriel produced the late Charles Grodin’s talk show Charles Grodin for CNBC.

Chris Harrison Exits ‘The Bachelor’ Permanently With Reported Eight-Figure Payout & Promise to Keep His Mouth Shut

After his 17-year-run as longtime host, and one of the executive producers of the ‘Bachelor’ franchise, Chris Harrison, is exiting the ABC reality-dating competition scene, after a legal settlement was finalized in the last 24 hours.

Harrison, who is not hosting this season’s The Bachelorette (which debuted last night), or the upcoming Bachelor in Paradise late summer season, reportedly will receive a reported, mid-range eight-figure payoff with a promise to keep his mouth shut on all the behind-the-scenes secrets.

Deadline broke the news Tuesday morning with an official public announcement on the parting of the ways slated for later today.

Apparently, a confidential settlement with franchise producers and the show’s distributor, Warner Horizon was finally reached on Monday night, and Harrison’s team pledged to expose The Bachelor’s ‘dirty laundry” unless Harrison’s financial settlement went his way.

Chris’ problems began earlier this year when photos surfaced on social media of ‘Bachelor’ contestant, Rachael Kirkconnell’s participation in an Old South slave plantation-themed party during Matt James’ season of the series, where he was the first Black male lead of the show.

Harrison was then interviewed by former ‘Bachelorette’ Rachel Lindsay on Extra where he seemed to offer ‘compassion” to Kirkconnell for her previous mistakes in this time of “cancel culture”.  His remarks were met with sharp criticism, and so in mid-February Chris announced he would be “stepping aside” from what was to be the finish of the landmark season of  The Bachelor.  Making matter worse was that Kirkconnell received the final rose from James, and then in the aftermath for the After the Final Rose season finale, Harrison was replaced by Emmanuel Acho, who learned that the two broke-up following the taping of the season.

Stay tuned for more on this developing story.

So, glad Chris Harrison is OUT on all ‘Bachelor’ series hosting gigs?  Who do you think should replace him? Should the franchise pack-it-up? Comment below.
