Soap Blog Coalition: what's hot on the web today on the soaps!

Tea’s inoperable brain tumor on One Life to Live,  Michael’s testimony on GH, and grading the exits of Pine Valley’s, Palmer and Adam, were all on the minds of our fellow online bloggers and favorite soap sites this week.  Check each of their hot items below!

General Hospital has been on a roll with the build up to Michael’s testimony. Daytime Confidential’s Regan Cellura weighs in on the storyline’s culmination. (Daytime Confidential)

Last week was a tough one for AMC fans so this week the PVB rates the farewells… Adam and Palmer’s. What did you think, were our grades fair? (Pine Valley Bulletin

The writing for GH characters when a new (or old) actor takes over the role changes so dramatically that the Serial Drama girls have had fun imagining how the Lucky/Michael scenes would have gone down with Greg Vaughan and Drew Garrett. The fact that this was the highlight of the week on GH says a whole lot, none of it good. (Serial Drama)

I have been shedding a few tears these days upon discovering Tea has just been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor and the prognosis is not good. I have fallen in love with this character aptly portrayed by the accomplished Florencia Lozano. (Soap Opera Examiner)

REPORT: CBS to Exercise Option to Renew The Bold and the Beautiful Through 2024-2025 Season

Hot on the heels of today’s announcement of The Young and the Restless being picked-up for four more season, many have wondered what this means for its sister soap, The Bold and the Beautiful.

According to a report by TV Line, during B&B’s last renewal pick-up for two years, CBS included an option for an additional year. So, when B&B’s current renewal expires this May, (just like Y&R’s was set to do) it included an additional option year.

A CBS source told the outlet, that the option will be exercised, extending B&B through the 2024-25 TV season. There most likely would be no official announcement for B&B continuing on for another year, since its not part of a newly-negotiated extension.

The Bold and the Beautiful was co-created by William J. Bell and Lee Phillip Bell and premiered on CBS back on March 23, 1987. The series will be celebrating its 37th anniversary next month.

Currently, viewers were in for a shock when this week, it appears that the powers-that-be ended the reign of terror of supervillain Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown) or did they?

With Y&R renewed for four years, B&B expected for another under its current contract with CBS, Days of our Lives renewed through its 60th season and General Hospital continuing on, it looks like there is no need to worry at present time that the four remaining soap operas are going anywhere.

So, glad to know B&B will have CBS pick-up their option for at least another year? Comment below.
