Tell us more about Year Rounders, Will any of our AMC / OLTL actors be on?

I watch soaps in part because I despise most so-called reality TV. There seems to be awful lot if reality on this schedule. I hope that Year Rounders is successful, but I don’t see me hanging out in this town.

Gotta agree with you. Reality TV is really not what I want to watch there are plenty of other channels dishing that out and choose not to watch. I want to see soaps

I have read that younger peoples like Reality TV..
They can tune in and out and not be lost and they also like fast, fast paced, show me and then in 20mins over and out ..
younger gen like different media than older folks, they grew up with fast paced internet programing and quick view reality stuff..
hey, they like it.. lol
I do not care for those stupid staged reality shows that are not even real reality , they are phony ..

I want one network broadcast tv station that will run Dark Shadows in full, from black&white day one..
And, AMC and OLTL..
then I’d be a happy camper 🙂

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Dark Shadows is my all time favorite soap…the first few months of the show is very slow but it sure picks up when Laura The Phoenix returns from the dead to claim her son David!…by the way Laura was married to David’s father Roger who is also Laura’s grandson…in 1897 Laura was married to Rogers grandfather Edward…Edward and Laura had a son named Jamison who grew up and become Rogers father…lol…campy twisted DS was cool and fun!!!!

I have to agree…gotta say…I was hopeful about this, but judging from the shows..not what I thought it was going to be. Mabye it will change, and give us reruns of out soaps. Until then, I’ll pass.

This doesn’t seem soap opera related AT ALL seems like weird programming and MORE reality that we don’t need. Not seeming to original and not driving me to the computer to watch. Not a fan of web shows really but was willing to try, Since its based towards Soap Viewers but now NOT BOTHERING
GOOD LUCK Suddville “But I’m Out”

Lou Piikes

The line-up looks good. My only gripe is that it doesn’t include more soaps than reality shows. Oh well, it is only the beginning . I will give the network a chance to add more programming.

Mark

What does most of this have to do with soaps? A style show? A fashion show? I think I speak for my fellow soap fans: WE WANT SOAPS!!

I totally agree with you. We want to follow the development of interesting characters and see complex relationships and situations. We want to see interesting stories develop and play out to resolution. We want characters that grow and adapt to changing situations. We want something to invest in.

I am kind of baffled at the programming being as it’s called sudsville with so called sudsies??? Not only that but the length of time in between launch and the only soap drama offering two months later. I would have thought the roll out would have included the new soap and not shows about make up artists and grammies and newbie actors running here to there. SMH..and a game show with a chicken dinner ending…is that every episode?? This is more like E or POP and they already have their niche audience. Unfortunately this may go the way of Prospect Park in a now you see us now you don’t before the soap even airs. I don’t see this working…LOL…but IOMO..so we’ll see. Or rather others can.

You bet, Mark. I hate reality shows….not true to life. Becoming famous over one’s grotesquely huge, monstrously out of place butt is ridiculous. That thing is supposed to be a thing of beauty?
Then there are the plastic Hollywood housewives etc.
WHERE ARE THE SOAPS!!!!??????

And unfortunately CeeCee there seems to be no end to the Kardashian brand! Now theres a 17 year old female pimping herself out all over the internet and looks to be the next Kim! Uggg!

I may watch if there are some good dramas and not reality shows. I miss some of the soaps like OLTL and AMC as they had great actors. Most of these reality shows on tv have people who do not deserve the name of actor or actress.

Please listen to us, we need All my Children back and One Life To Live. I am not giving up hope. I will not forgive ABC, for cancelling AMC and OLTL. I hope ABC chokes on it. Brian Frons needs to be punished, and I will call Sheila Carter to finished the sob LOL.

Johnny

I meant Sheila Carter to finish off the sob LOL.

I totally agree Johnny. There is no reason in the world why OLTL and AMC are not in production and on the air now. If they were so concerned about production costs, there were several alternatives to cancellation. Like you, I will never forgive the alphabet network or the mouse company for this horrible betrayal.

Not one soap related show on the schedule.
Nothing but garbage. Gong

What a disappointment! The only thing that looks interesting is the soap opera trivia with Michael O’Leary! And that’s not until December? Why is it on a Days of Our Lives schedule? Nothing else looks appealing, they have nothing to do with soaps.

Not impressed. Just more reality programming. Just what we need. NOT!

All networks or in this case, “Webworks” start out in their infancy with less than stellar programming. ESPN used to show softball games! I hear what people want and that used to be called “Soapnet.” Soapnet tried their hand at rerunning old soaps and talk shows. It sputtered out after a couple years and is gone now. Maybe this will turn out differently. Internet TV is now longer the future. It is now. One of the best shows on “TV” is on the internet and stars Jerry Seinfeld. He drives a classic car, picks up a comedian and they have coffee. Its great! Give this a chance and we’ll see what happens. As for classic soaps, it may cost too much to show them or they may be held up in some sort of legal mess.

I will watch the soap and the soap related trivia show, that’s it. I hope these shows will be available on demand.

Wish they had more about the soaps that are no longer on the air (I’m still missing my ATWT). Sorry, but the lineup doesn’t sound too interesting to me at this point.

Year Rounders and the platform is what is so exciting to me! It seems these shows and contests surrounding them will keep me coming back for more. Sometimes I can’t wait until the next episode of a show and it seems with this line up I will never get bored! So cool and I CANT WAIT FOR FALL!

The only thing that has possibilities for me is Year Rounders. I really do not like talk shows.

Sudsville had me hoping for more soaps. Why couldn’t they broadcast a “best of web series”. or a “Web Series preview show:. That would at least be soap related. .
Seems there could be done relatively inexpensive. (the word is relatively) . Would love to see soap opera repeats. . I wonder how the Doctors is doing rating rise for Retro tv?

Final Season of ‘EastSiders’ Starring Kit Williamson and Van Hansis Gets Premiere Date on Netflix

The fourth and final season of the much heralded LGBTQ series, EastSiders now has a premiere date of December 1st on Netflix, and fans of the show will see how things will play out for the Silver Lake duo of Cal  and Thom, who have gone through quite a lot in their relationship over the last three seasons.

EastSiders stars series creator, Kit Williamson (Cal) along with As the World Turns favorite, Van Hansis (Thom).  The last six-episodes that comprise season four will tackle questions such as… what does commitment really look like in a long-term relationship? And what unique challenges does a “gay marriage” present?

In story, Cal and Thom are back home in Los Angeles following season three’s cross-country road trip.  The guys are still trying to figure out if they are just best friends with benefits, or more, or less, than that.

Elsewhere, Douglas (Willam Belli) and Quincy (Stephen Guarino) are engaged to be married, but with very different ideas about what a gay wedding should be. Hillary (Brianna Brown) and Ian (John Halbach) are cohabiting peacefully; and Jeremy (Matthew McKelligon) and Derrick (Leith M. Burke) have taken a huge step in their relationship by fostering a child.

Deadline broke the news of the premiere date and the many special guest stars from primetime and more to look forward to this season.

Emmy Winner and Noted Soap Opera Head Writer; Hogan Sheffer Passes Away At 61

Over the last several hours, reports have broke that one of daytime’s most notable scribes has died.  Hogan Sheffer, who was head writer at As the World Turns, Days of our Lives and The Young and the Restless has passed away at the age of 61.

Soap Hub, first reported the news via multiple sources, however, many writers who worked with Hogan during his tenure on the soaps have taken to social media to share their condolences and their grief and remembrances.

Sheffer’s appearance on the soap scene was unexpected, especially in a genre where it is often rare for new blood to take the reins at the head writer position.  Proctor & Gamble had decided to bring in Hogan after his work as the Director of Screenplay Development for DreamWorks, not because of his writing credits for a previous network soap.  He was given trial deal as a breakdown writer for the CBS soap and 10-weeks in became the beloved town of Oakdale’s new head writer.

Hogan and his then writing team were able to turn the classic, As the World Turns around.  The show went up in the ratings and during his time with the series ‘World Turn’s’ won two Daytime Emmys for Outstanding Drama Series, and he and the writing team picked up four Emmy victories all through 2000-2004.

Next, Sheffer landed in Salem as head writer of Days of our Lives along with Meg Kelly from 2006 through to the beginning of 2008.   He would later join The Young and the Restless and team up with then head writers: Maria Arena Bell and Scott Hamner, and eventually stay with the show till 2012.  During Sheffer’s time in Genoa City, Y&R also won a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Writing in 2011.

On Sunday, former WWE and daytime writer Tom Casiello, who was extremely close with Sheffer…  and who shared how Hogan gave him his start at writing in daytime, took to his Facebook page to pay tribute to a man who had such an impact on his life and many others.  It is worth the read here. 

Y&R writer, Sara Bibel tweeted: “Hogan Sheffer was a gamechanger for ATWT and daytime. Everyone I know who worked with him adored him. RIP”

And, iconic ATWT star, Martha Byrne (Ex-Lily) tweeted on Sheffer’s passing: “To say he was one of a kind would be a tremendous understatement. Our years at ATWT with Hogan at the helm were a rebirth for our beautiful show. Loved his writers, actors,crew. Blessed to have him on the first floor in Brooklyn ready to listen. Talented. Funny. Generous. RIP”

Colleen Zenk (Ex-Barbara, ATWT) also took to Twitter upon learning of the passing of Sheffer sharing: “I loved him, loved him, loved him… he was so good to me. Thank you for everything, Hogan. You were so loved. Especially, by me… Rest in peace…”

Michael Fairman TV will continue to bring you updates as the soap world mourns the loss of a creative force in our genre.  Share your condolences and thoughts on the death of Hogan Sheffer via the comment section below.
