Photo: IMDB

On today’s November 20th episode of General Hospital, there will be a new look to TJ Ashford when Tajb Bellow takes over the role from Daytime Emmy-nominated Tequan Richmond.

As viewers know, and first reported by Daytime Confidential, Richmond landed a lead role in the upcoming series on BET called Boomerang.  

Now, with Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Jordan’s (Briana Nicole Henry) wedding right around the corner, of course, it makes sense that TJ will be back on the canvas.

As for Bellow, his previous credits include The Ben Carson StoryK.C. Undercover, and Bosch.

Richmond has played the role since 2012.  Soap Opera Digest announced the casting switcheroo.

Bellow tweeted on the announcement of his joining GH, “So excited to be joining the family!”

So, looking forward to seeing the character of TJ back in the mix in Port Charles? Comment below.

“Now, with Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Jordan’s (Briana Nicole Henry) wedding right around the corner, of course, it makes sense that TJ will be back on the canvas.”
Really? Why? When was the last time that we saw TJ? We’ll see him at the wedding, and then he’ll be MIA for the next six months to make room for Peter, Sasha, Willow, etc. November sweeps are boring and tanking the ratings. Ryan is a dullard (and I LOVE Jon Lindstrom). We haven’t seen Lucy, Felicia, or Mac. But, Laura is kissing Peter’s “heiny” because he owns “The Invader.” Apparently, now it’s Genie Francis’ job to prop-up Laura Wright’s boyfriend. I’m just so disappointed with this show. It’s a waste of time to watch.

AVP, is it just me or is Peter becoming more repulsive by degrees? I CAN’T STAND the guy with his smarmy attitude, lousy wardrobe, and “publishing genius”. Anyone who’d put Lulu in charge of “serious journalism” needs serious help. Still don’t get why he’s on. Or Sasha. Or new T.J. Or Stella. Or……

isn’t he being the brat… lets see him in another elevator drop mode get sketchy.

I found it laughable as Anna digs in on Valentin, @the Metro Bar… “don’t touch my son” ????? they have yet to “bond” yet Anna is clawing her way back…. LOL.. should she ? I have zero interest in her character. it’s so embarrassing watching Finn HAM it up … for all the bumbling his character is… AND his LEADING MAN theatrics ( he’s stealing Franco act ) w/ not an ounce of chemistry… he sure takes the lead in stud muffin’ing Anna in bed. she’s lapping it all up. why would Anna sit their holding Finn as he’s reading a letter from Hayden… so understanding doe eyed not missing any stroke.

heart palpitation?… bile of richs… PLEASE STOP THIS

@first glance… I thought Alex Rodriguez… GOOD FOR HIM, the actor… getting this opportunity. OK perhaps we’ll see more of Molly… @GH tune down her know it all

I liked well enough the ex-Jordan chemistry with TJ.. she seemed to have a softer touch with ; and the spats with Stella seemed MORE believable.

GUESS that’s my 2 cents on the recast. Hopefully THIS TJ will smooth that out.

Tajb Bellow ” IF – you are – connecting; making contact
with Stella… that’s 1/2 the battle… chemistry with Molly the other 1/2

with Jordan and Curtis.. icing

I sorry to see Tequan go but happy he’s got another gig. I will say that this TJ looks a good bit like his on-screen mother. Good luck to him.

Tequan was a QT in nothing role, so why even recast it?

Agreed. TPTB don’t have a clue. That’s why the ratings are in the toilet. – nothing against the recast or actor.

Am liking the new TJ, but too bad he’s giving the mother away, he’s only known about five minutes.
I am guessing poor Kiki will not make the wedding, as the Ava crazy Ryan , has other plans for her.
How sadistic of them to have her murdered on Thanksgiving day.

Network Exec, Angelica McDaniel On Y&R’s Staying Power: “We Have This Award-Winning, Ratings-Generating, Money-Making Show, And It Really Adds Value To CBS.”

This week, The Young and the Restless celebrated 30 years as the number-one rated daytime soap opera.  That is a streak of 1,560 weeks in the top spot.

Angelica McDaniel, executive vp daytime programs and syndicated program development at CBS, spoke to the Hollywood Reporter on what has made this remarkable run; attributing it to strong storytelling and a cast that includes several beloved veterans who have been around the entire time.

The executive noted that while other soaps over the years have fallen by the wayside, and even though we are down to only four surviving network soap operas, that Y&R will be around with no end in sight.

McDaniel stated, “We have this award-winning, ratings-generating, money-making show, and it really adds value to CBS. We expect it be a part of our lineup in the future.”

She also added, “The Young and the Restless has some of the best actors in the industry — not in soaps, not in daytime, but in television. We have iconic, legacy characters that have been on our show for decades. Melody Thomas Scott will be celebrating her 40th year on the show in February. Peter Bergman just reached his 30th anniversary in November. Eric Braeden started in 1980. We just have an incredible arsenal of actors who are so talented and play these characters so well that you don’t even realize they’re characters. They become people who are part of your life, part of your daily existence.”

As for the continual investment and ways the audience watches the show on various platforms, McDaniel expresed: “The great thing about daytime television is we have loyal, passionate viewers, and they really like to tune in day and date. They want to stick with their stories and see what’s happening today. … Having said that, The Young and the Restless is also one of the top streamed shows on CBS.com. As trends evolve, we are where our viewers are, and we’re making shows readily accessible so they can get their fix and follow their stories.”

So, what do you think about Y&R? Will it remain if and when all other soaps have come to theirconclusion? Do you think it will continue on for years to come, given its position at number #1? Comment below!

Jacob Young Offers Up Thoughts On Rick and Maya’s Split On The Bold and the Beautiful

As fans of CBS Daytime’s The Bold and the Beautiful know, Daytime Emmy-winner Jacob Young (Rick Forrester) has been off the canvas for some time, and the actor had gone on recurring status with the series.

Young has been busy with other projects involving acting roles, his You Tube show, and music career, but certainly is open to a return to the soap opera.

But after the cover of this week’s Soap Opera Digest hit newsstands; which indicates that Rick and Maya have split with the return on-air of Karla Mosley (Maya) (who had been off the show for maternity leave), it clearly looks like the show is moving in a different direction.

Jacob took to Twitter to offer up his feelings on the matter tweeting: “I for one am incredibly sad and disappointed. Rick and Maya have split. (Love that would never die) I loved working with Karla Mosley.  it has been the highlight of my 21 year career in daytime. TRUST ME when I say your opinion matters.”

Since that posting, fans of the couple known as #Raya, have been voicing their thoughts and sharing photos of the on-screen duo.  Young responded to one in particular saying, “Who remembers this? Gosh, I miss Maya.”  In it,the posting read: “This is heartbreaking, Raya was the only example of what true love looks like on that soap!”

Previously, B&B has told the emotional and socially-relevant love story of a transgender woman falling in love with one of the men of the wealthy and renowned Forrester family.

So, what do you think of Jacob’s comments?  Do you want Rick back on the canvas?  What should then happen next for Maya with no Rick?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
