For a nice fun silly break from all the sorrow and frustration over OLTL and AMC’s cancellations over the past week, we found this little ditty from none other than Llanview resident, Ted King (Tomas) in this week’s issue of Soap Opera Weekly that One Life to Live fans will get a kick-out of.  It seems during a recent fan club event, King shared his David Letterman-esque countdown of the Top Ten Reasons You Should Be Watching OLTL! So without further adieu here is the countdown below starting with number ten!

10) If someone gets slapped…it’s real.

9)  Characters over 50 are welcome.

8)  Bullying will not be tolerated.

7) It’s the only show where the guys take off their shirts more than the ladies.

6) Storylines won’t be recycled every six months.

5) The Southern Accents are real.

4) The cops get convictions and put people in jail.

3) (It’s) the only show with two Todds.

2) (It’s) the only soap that exists in New York!

1) (It’s) the only soap where you might see a guy paint, use karate, speak French, Spanish  and English, and play the piano in the same scene.

As a OLTL fan, I love it! Such a cute, but true top 10! Thanks for sharing!

Guys w/shirts off is not one of my top reasons to watch, even in top 100 reasons (eww). But OLTL is the best written soap right now, and the *only* one in New York.

He’s a smart, funny, and handsome man. He’s a pleasure to watch onscreen or in person. If ABCD is smart, they will not stand in the way of someone else saving this well written and produced show. I just read a quote in the most recent Hollywood Reporter by David Madden, Fox Television Studios President.

“..and there’s nothing wrong wrong with reality shows – we make a bunch of them. But frequently they have less appeal to advertisers and are not as appealing to the affluent viewers that advertisers are most interested in.”

Fun list! I remember at Jessica Leccia’s fan luncheon when she was talking about doing her scene with John Wesley Shipp where Inez slaps Eddie Ford. She mentioned that he wanted her to actually slap him, so that it was actually a real connect, not just faked to ‘look’ real.

#OLTL best soap on the air.

OLTL has the best writing and stories of all three- The reason OLTL is doing so well is because Frons left it alone thinking it was going to tank.. But it sored the moment he got his nasty hands away from it and focused on amc with gh. Both of which have crappy writing..
Ted King as they say in the street-YOU are all that and a bag of chips… Sexy hot smart. OLTL is lucky to have you .. I hope Nbc does pick up OLTL and keep current writers.. because I have a feeling OLTL is really going to be a contender .

These are all good reasons, but no one seems to mention the overlooked (especially by the Emmys) but exceptional Florencia Lozano.

The Bold and the Beautiful Ratings Winner With Phoebe is Beth Reveal

Great news for The Bold and the Beautiful and their long-awaited payoff: that the little girl being raised by Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) as “Phoebe” is really Liam (Scott Clifton) and Hope’s (Annika Noelle) daughter, Beth, who they believed had died in the long and twisty baby switch storyline.

B&B was the highest rated daytime television show in the key 25-54 womens demo and the first time in the 32-year-old history of the CBS sudser that it has been atop of that demo. That is not only among the network soaps but all series genres in daytime for the week of August 5-9 –  quite the feat.

During the ratings week, Liam figured out that Phoebe was Beth, and eventually after Thomas’ (Matt Atkinson) manipulations told Hope the truth.

All this goes to show that as frustrated as viewers get wanting the truth to come out in a story they follow; when it finally does, they are along for the ride. Something B&B executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell does exceptionally well with big umbrella storylines that hold major ramifications for many on the canvas.

Congrats to Brad and the B&B team!

So, what do you think of BOLD’s performance in the ratings for the big week in story? Comment below

Kelly Monaco Addresses Billy Miller’s Departure From GH

In a post via her twitter account, General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco (Sam) shared her heartbreak on her longtime scene partner, Billy Miller’s (Drew) exit from the ABC daytime drama series.  This was the first time that Kelly addressed the situation in a public forum.

Miller came on to GH back in 2014 as Jason Morgan, following the departure of Steve Burton, who then wound up on Y&R.  When Burton returned to GH in 2017, Miller’s part was then turned-in-to, Jason’s twin, Drew Cain.

Through a great portion of Miller’s run on GH, he was paired romantically on -screen with Monaco and the duo were, and have remained, one of the most popular duo’s in daytime.

Monaco expressed the following in her message: “I feel like I have to address this situation. #BillyMiller ‘s untimely departure from #gh. Honestly, I can not come up with the words to describe how I feel about this decision… a decision that may not be what our audience thinks to be true. I’m heartbroken… more to come.”
