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)!

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.

It looks like the unibomber would live therer!

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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 …

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… Read more »

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.

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!

Where did the table lamp, “the one next to the stairs” in the Newman penthouse come from?

‘This Is Us’ Season 6 to have Midseason Premiere and 18 Episode Order as It Concludes

The beloved Pearson family drama This Is Us will end after its sixth and final season, and news today from NBC executives Susan Rovner and Frances Berwick revealed that when the show returns for its last run, it will have a midseason, not a fall, premiere date.

Add to that, the fact that the show will wrap with an 18-episode order.  The execs shared to TV reporters and outlets including Deadline: “We know that saying goodbye to the Pearsons is going to be hard enough. So what we wanted to do is honor the fans and get them as close to an uninterrupted run as we could, which is only possible in midseason,” said Berwick.

Susan Rovner expressed: That by starting the story midseason, it will help make the send-off “a great event for the fans to enjoy.” She went on to say, “I think in Dan’s (Fogelman) hands, it’s going to be fantastic.”

For the past five season the cast has featured: Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown,Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley, Susan Kelechi Watson and Chris Sullivan, and there are still two more episodes of the current season, until the season finale on May 25th in a special time 10 p.m. ET/PT.

So, are you ready to say goodbye to the story of Randall, Kevin, and Kate and the rest of the family? Comment below.

DAYS Jackée Harry Joins Freeform Comedy Pilot ‘Everything’s Trash’ in Recurring Role

Jackée Harry is one busy actress in Hollywood!  On the heels of learning that Harry has signed on more full-time on Days of our Lives in her role as Paulina, comes this bit of casting news.

Harry will join the cast of the Freeform comedy pilot, Everything’s Trash along with another notable actor, George Wallace.  Both will have recurring roles in the show should it go to series.

In story, Everything’s Trash follows Phoebe (Phoebe Robinson), a 30-something podcast star navigating her messy life. When her younger brother Jayden emerges as a leading politician, she’s forced to grow up, so she relies on her friends and close-knit family to help her figure out adulthood, since she doesn’t seem to have a clue. The series is inspired by Robinson’s book, “Everything’s Trash But It’s Okay.”

According to Variety, “Harry will star as Zora, Phoebe and Jayden’s mother. She and her husband are mid-Western transplants, but they have made a home in NY . They love and support their children equally, but truth be known, Zora acts (and dresses) younger than she is and straddles the line between “I’m my daughter’s mother” and “I’m my daughter’s best friend.”  Meanwhile, Wallace will play the role of Abraham, Phoebe and Jayden’s father and husband to Zora.

So, looking forward to hopefully seeing Jackée on a half-comedy sitcom at night, and doing her role on Days of our Lives? Comment below.

GH’s Rebecca Herbst Thanks Fans for the Birthday Love

She is not often on social media, but when she does show up, it delights so many of her enduring fans. General Hospital’s Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth), who yesterday celebrated her birthday on May 12th, took to Twitter to share warm ‘thank you’s’ to a few fan factions who sent her some lovely gifts in honor and support of their favorite soap star.

Herbst expressed: “Yesterday was such a beautiful day! THANK YOU for all your sweet Birthday messages! #Friz & #Liason showered me with the most gorgeous flowers, cakes & goodies. And #Friz donated $2500 to #SmileTrain.  I felt very loved. I’m so grateful for each & every one of you. …XO”

Of course, the Friz fans loved Liz with Franco (Roger Howarth) and the Liason fans are those who love Liz with Jason (Steve Burton).

Now with Roger Howarth returning to the show – in what is at this juncture still a mystery as who he will play – will Rebecca be paired with Roger in story again, or not this time?  Do you think Liz might end up romantically with Finn (Michael Easton), or is there still a chance that down the line Liz and Jason could get back together, or could Liz meet someone new? Only time will tell!

For now, Herbst was thankful for the money donated to the Smile Train charity and all the wonderful gifts and messages that came her way.

So, what did you think of Becky’s thank you message?  Who are you hoping Liz winds up with romantically in the future?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.
