Absolutely love the new set for Victor and Nikki. Nice job set designers (I smell some Set Design Emmy’s coming Y&R’s way next spring)!

Loving the fresh take on sets on Y&R; long overdue in my opinion! Kudos to the producers and set designers! Definite breath of fresh air!

Victor will look right at home in the penthouse looking down on Genoa City! Great job.

It’s lipstick on a pig – or in Victor’s case, Formaldehyde in a corpse.

MAB had done terrible damage to Y&R. And so far, all I see is JFP continueing the decline. With Phyllis still front and center in Jack’s storyline, and Victor still doing the same thing AND being front and center, I’ve stopped watching.
And this time, maybe for good.

With all the talent out there, why did TIIC insist on inflicting another failed producer like JFP on the show? I’m starting to believe they want Y&R to fail much like the intended destruction of AMC.

Yeah but who designed Adam’s guest house that Sharon has been living in?

It looks like the unibomber would live therer!

Love it. A breath of fresh air. Very bright and modern. I f the storylines can get better, this can be the best soap. A long overdue change. I won’t miss the ranch at all.

Thank you for sharing this, Michael.

I think their new penthouse is gorgeous and befitting of Victor and Nikki Newman. I miss the ranch, but I can’t wait to see what they do with it [the ranch] when they are ready for someone else to move into the penthouse – and you know they will not want to abandon that gorgeous set.

I also like that Victor and Nikki are still showcased and not on only once a week or on occasion as most of us had feared for the veterans.

Improving the sets, I think Jill and company get a B+. I am glad they got rid of those hideous FAKE geraniums at Adam’s place. However, I’m still not convinced about the storylines yet.

I think the storylines are in transition, it hasn’t been that long, and a good story line needs time to set up and put into play. I believe right now the show is doing filler because they have to put something on the air- whatever MAB plotted out a year ago was tossed out and a new game plan has to be put together. For some fans it is not changing quick enough, I like this pace, and I’m not complaining– yet- check me out in a year time- because I think it going take that long before we are really going to notice anything. Right now, changes to the sets, some new music, different camera shots are being done to give it updated look and the rest only time will tell.

I am okay with the pace. I just do not like what they are doing to Kevin and I am pretty sure wherever they are going with Kyle and Phyllis it is going to be a big mess.

They haven’t made me really mad yet except at the firing of Marcy Rylan. They really could have used that cute and talented girl. I think they were wrong there.

I agree that I like that Victor and Nikki are being show cased and together. It is so nice to see them working together to take care of their family like normal people do …

Definitely good for the show to update and making changes .

All the new sets since Jill came into the series have been beautiful. My only wish is that the ranch stayed and was simply updated, and that Katherine’s home stayed its size, and just added that extra wall. But over-all, AMAZING changes. I’m thoroughly impressed!

Ya don’t like it at all. Not his character or style. I am afraid this was a BIG fail. Sorry

Sorry but I guess I hate change, and I really don’t like the new gray sterile penthouse. It is just not cozy like the ranch house was. The only houses I like on the show are Jack’s house, although now they have the dining room door closed, which makes it a little bit depressing, and I LOVE Sharon’s home at the ranch. Please dont change that one. Stained glass and tiffany lamps, NOT the gray shiny penthouse, for me. Ill always stick with YR though. It has always been there for me 🙂

The doors to Jack’s dining are closed because they have shrunk the set. All the elements are there, but if you really looked it is all crammed together- the dining room doors were never that close to the fireplace ever. They also shrunk Katherine’s living room. I guess they needed to make room for all these new sets. And a friend of mine has suggested since a soap is more about the dialogue than the action, large sets are a waste and costly to upkeep, which might explaining the shrinking sets too. It just looks odd to me, but I will get accustom to it I suppose- and whenever they rebuilt the ranch, it will not be as big as it was either.

I agree, Melody. I really like Nick’s tack house, especially the board games on the credenza. It feels and looks like a home with children in it.

It’s too bad Billy & Victoria’s “Father Knows Best” home is not much fun. It seems to be fun when Reed or Delia comes to visit.

Speaking of Sharon’s house, is the dragonfly chair new or have I just never noticed it before? I am noticing more and more of Jill Farren Phelp’s decorating touches like real flowers or very good silk ones throughout Jabot and Newman and Adam’s house.

P.S, PLEASE give Katherine Chancellor a NEW “unblue” dining room:)

I love new sets. The Newman ranch should have been torched long ago. New sets bring energy and a new way of seeing the characters. They should utilize more 4 wall sets like GL did. Soaps are not taped before an audience, so they should be more realistic.

Love the new set! Please tell me where the gray sofas are from!

I love Victor’s new light gray wing chair. Who makes it and is it available for the general public?

I LOVE the new set used for Victoria & Billy’s living room. Where can I find the gray sofa & love seat? Also love the teal accents used for club chair & drapes!

I love the lavender dining room chairs at Devon’s place. Where can I get some like those or similar to them?

General Hospital

Chloe Lanier’s New Short Film ‘The Reveal’ Releases First Trailer

As previously reported, Chloe Lanier, the actress who plays naughty Nelle Benson on ABC’s General Hospital, has been busy at work on a special project. And while Nelle is upset having just been denied parole on the ABC soap opera, (something tells us nothing will stop her from getting out of the slammer), Lanier on the other hand has been very excited about her new short film, The Reveal.

The Reveal in which Lanier stars, co-wrote, and co-directed along with her boyfriend, Kevan McClellan also has some very familiar faces along for the ride from Port Charles and Genoa City. That’s because Brytni Sarpy (Elena, Y&R) and Josh Swickard (Chase, GH) are also part of the film.

The action takes place at a gender reveal party for a baby, and according to the loglines of the short: “Zoe and James are a young couple attending their new-age friends gender reveal party. As they attempt to find their place amongst the eclectic group of party guests and friends, unsung wishes and hidden resentments begin to surface within their relationship.”

Watch the trailer from Lanier below.

Then, let us know if you are intrigued to see the short film when its out via the comment section below.

WATCH: Jonathan Jackson + Enation’s New Music Video “The Days Are Evil”

Five-time Daytime Emmy winner from General Hospital, and former Nashville star, Jonathan Jackson (Ex-Lucky, Ex-Avery) has released a new music video for the new single “The Days Are Evil” along with his band Enation.

The music video features shots of Jackson in a very dark incarnation, and the track will also appear on Jackson + Enation’s upcoming album due out later this fall, Ultraviolet Empire.

Jonathan says of the new album: “Our new album, Ultraviolet Empire, is a throwback record. It’s a record we played together live in the studio. Most of the songs are one take -just letting the band play.  It was amazing playing with our co-producer Colin Linden and capturing something so raw and visceral.”

This will be the band’s follow-up to their 2017 album  Anthems for the Apocalypse and their successful 2018 tour in Europe opening for Echo & The Bunnymen,

Check out the music video featuring Jonathan released this week below.

Then, let us know, should Lucky return to Port Charles for the Nurses’ Ball with his band and play a tune off the new album next spring? Will Jonathan come home to GH for a guest appearance? Will you be checking out the new music from him in the coming months? Comment below.

Days Of Our Lives

TODAY: Ron Carlivati’s Dad Appears on DAYS

Be on the lookout on Friday’s October 18th episode of Days of our Lives for one of the shows “superfans” who pops in Salem.  That is when the father of DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati appears as an extra on the NBC soap opera.

Carlivati Sr., who is very proud of his son, looks to be donning a medical lab coat as a physician in a photo shared on social media along with Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), one of Salem’s most busy and most respected doctors.

Ron told SOD about his dad appearing on the show that he writes: “It’s funny because I’ve been in soaps for over 20 years and my dad would watch to see my name on the credits but rarely get into the show. Somehow, I don’t know what clicked in for him, he’s obsessed with Days of our Lives. He does not miss it.”

As to how his dad became an extra for the day: “We were at the studio and Albert Alarr, our co-executive producer, comes up and meets my parents and turns to my dad and says, ‘We’re gonna be shooting some scenes in the hospital next. How would you like to be in them?’ I honestly had no idea this was coming. I also fainted.”
