Fans of CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful noticed that the series this week rolled out their new updated opening credits adding their latest cast members to the mix.

Now included in the sequence are: Rome Flynn (Zende), Reign Edwards (Nicole) and Pierson Fode (Thomas), but with that comes the deletion of Winsor Harmon, who has been beloved as Thorne Forrester for decades.

After inquiries from fans, Harmon took to his Twitter page to address his status with the series adding: “I want to thank everyone for 17 Beautiful years playing Thorne I love you all Thank U for the amazing run B&B you’ll forever B a part of me.”  While Winsor made that statement to his followers, B&B reports that the actor is still on recurring status with the series.

WatchThe Bold and the Beautiful’s latest opening sequence update after the jump.  Are you glad Rome, Reign, and Pierson are added in, but disappointed there is no Winsor sighting?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

If the show is boring as it has been lately. It doesn’t matter who is in the opening credits.
They still had Steffie and Hope there long after they were off the program.

I believe Jennifer Gareis has been on recurring for a long time, they’ve just taken a while to update their credits.

Winsor Harmon and Thorne Forrester deserve better from THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL. I can not understand why a solid sustaining story line cannot be developed for this talented actor and legacy character. And no, he need not romance a Logan sister or a shirttail relative! He has lost his mother, two wives, his only child, not to mention friends. There are two Forrester sisters out there, too. I would rather see them on the canvass more than some of the progeny and recycled plots.

I agree, I always liked Thorne and thought he was sexy. B&B hasn’t been good in years anyway.

I never understood why Thorne is such an underused character when back in the day, he carried a lot of storylines, Hopefully the show starts thinking about what to do with the character instead of just bringing him in for a cameo then sending him back into the woodwork.

It’s sad that Thorne is not part of the show. When Ali died, I thought Thorne was going to have story, but he was on for like two eps. What gives? Brad could write story for Thorne and Felicia, but chooses not to. Our loss.

I wish they would give Donna story too. But Katie is floundering as well. I enjoy Caroline and Ridge, but not Thomas.

Quinn and Deacon should have more story too. Spread the love!

I have been FF through most of B&B lately. It just is not holding my interest. I feel that they are repeating story lines.

Jimmy

Thorne should be front and center on B&B. He is a legacy character, portrayed by a talented actor, and the only true Forrester son. Instead of watching characters like Quinn, Deacon, Wyatt, Ivy, Steffy and Liam, there should be long-term, front-burner story for Thorne, and for that matter, Felicia too. Recently though, with the next generations of Forresters, Logans and Spencers coming to the forefront, B&B has seemingly dropped its older set. Even Eric and Brooke don’t have front-burner story, and they are the sole remaining original cast members on the show.

Y&R has been able to generate story for both its older set and the new generation of Nermans and Abbotts. Sure, there are a few exceptions, but aging its younger set hasn’t had as big of an impact on its older set as it has over at B&B. Summer, Kyle, Noah, Mariah, etc. don’t have the same impact on Y&R as Steffy, Liam, Ivy and Wyatt do on B&B, because Y&R knows how to write for its legacy characters (again, with exceptions, like Jill) while still bring in its next generation of characters.

Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for B&B, which has weeded out interesting characters like Jackie, Nick, Bridget, Thorne, Felicia and Taylor in favour of the kiddie patrol dominating story since Hope was aged in 2010. Since then, there hasn’t been a time when the younger set hasn’t had story, while legacy characters languish on the backburner as a result.

Worse still, B&B is losing a talented actor in Winsor Harmon, but then again, he’s so underutilized its embarrassing. Another show would serve him much better than B&B.

I hate how Brad Bell doesn’t know how to write for Thorne yet seems to know how to write for transexuals. He also has characters/actors come on for six months and then drop them. Too bad he isn’t more like his dad’s storytelling.

I tuned into B&B a couple of times and found it to be pretentiousness, totally not natural, phony/fake, way out of the real world..
just the way I saw it, many fans love love it ..

Finally took Hope off the canvas… good …means they aren’t planning to get her back!

A lot of updates in this version!

Removed: Donna, Hope, Aly, Thorne, and Oliver
Added: Steffy, Thomas, Nicole, Zende
Updated: Caroline, Maya, Pamela, Deacon

Oliver has been recurring for years, with Aly’s death his removal doesn’t surprise me in the least. And Donna was bumped to recurring months ago (read those closing credits, people, it’s a tell-tale sign!), so that doesn’t surprise me either. Thorne did surprise me, but I guess the writing has been on the wall about the commitment to that character for ages. Glad Hope is finally removed! I am pretty sure she’s been off for at least a year now, except for her IPAD appearance at Deacon’s wedding to Quinn, I believe.

One thing I was hoping for was updated groupings, because the order is weird to me now. Bill/Katie, Liam/Wyatt, I would think Deacon would be with Quinn at the end, and hoped Quinn would be updated with her longer hair. Why update Deacon when he barely looks different and has no storyline?

Pam’s update was welcome, she looks much better in this shot now. Wouldn’t have minded Charlie with Pam and even Julius and Vivienne Avant added in there seated in “the audience” at this fashion show. That would have covered all bases. And they were in the recent cast photo, so why not?

I have to see if Donna’s nameplate is missing off of Pam’s desk next time they show it!

I just ff through all the Rick and his wife’s sister stuff. Absolutely cannot stand Thomas. The baby is Ridges because Thomas slept with Caroline once and two days later she was pregnant. This is such bull. But I guess they need a reason for busy body Brooke to butt in. I can barely watch this crap anymore. So sad because for a time it was entertaining

Bi!l legally changed Wyatt’s name to Spencer and Quinn got married to Deacon. sooooo. what is up with Oliver?

I’m liking the change of putting Thomas with Ivy. I want Wyatt and Steffy. Liam is getting boring and does better working with his dad than in the fashion biz. Wyatt working with jewelry makes more sense to me to complement Steffy’s fashion business.

B&B is whack, they keep refurbishing the same old story lines when it comes to these Forrester women and men. I know Ivy and Thomas aren’t related by blood but it’s still borderline creepy that he keeps going after women in his family. I miss Harmon and his portrayal of Thorne, he’s easy on the eye and deserved a lot better than what he had been getting in the past few years.

why get rid of oliver ?? too bad him and aly couldn’t have went farther together!! brooke is only on to annoy us with her knowing ridge had a vasectomy.lol.. and Nicole having a baby for her sis and she’s still a virgin(I’m guessing) talk about virgin birth!!

I was noticing, when viewing my tv guide on my tv..John Mccook isn’t listed on it….THE gal who played Donna was slowly written out long ago..as was “Thorne”….IN reading on other info…B&B might lose “Ridge” in awhile too..due to his constant travel to east/west coast and rundown from it. ..Its been about a year since I ve stopped watching the show. Ditto with Young and Restless. I lost interest..due to the way the “modern ” writers were writing junk..and the actors brought on..are awful..AND..Im not into the gay/transgender thing being front and center storyline… SO, I watch a bit of national news, judge judy..and the rest, is dvd’s with shows/movies I like and more my speed. IN fact, Im looking for DVD’s of possible soaps..when they were good..Edge of Night, Love of Life, Y& R and B&B when they were very good shows..great storylines..good cast..

I have heard on the grapevine that Jennifer Gareis had been secretly dropped from B&B earlier this year. I believe that she was already on recurring status before this happened. And you know who else should be added to the opening sequence? Charlie. He appears even more than Deacon does!

Nick Cannon Daytime Talker Set To Premiere On September 21

More talk shows are coming daytime viewers way come the fall with the announcement of the premiere date for The Masked Singer host, Nick Cannon’s daytime talk show, titled aptly, Nick Cannon.

The company behind the upcoming nationally syndicated series, Debmar-Mercury, says the new show will bow on September 21 and has been cleared in more than 90% of markets in the United States.

According to Deadline: “Cannon’s production company, Ncredible Entertainment, and Debmar-Mercury will co-produce the talker featuring his take on the latest in trending pop culture stories and celebrity interviews.”

Ira Bernstein and Mort Marcus, co-presidents of Debmar-Mercury, said,  “Our great station partners are hungry for a rising, versatile and dynamic talent like Nick. His light-hearted style quickly wins over viewers and gives them a much-needed escape from the world.  We’ve been asked why we skipped doing test shows and explained there was no need. It’s obvious to anyone who watched Nick guest host for Wendy Williams last year how much he loves daytime talk and, based on the reaction of fans, how much they love him.”

Cannon added: “It’s been thrilling going through this process, and to see the widespread support that the show has received and the milestones we’ve achieved is mind blowing, We’re gearing up to deliver a must-see show and I’m looking forward to coming to you on your TV this fall.”

‘Edge of Night’ Mainstay Forrest Compton Dies Following Complications From COVID-19

Sad news to report this Monday.  The longtime star of CBS’ and then ABC’s The Edge of Night, Forrest Compton. has passed away due to complications from COVID-19. Forrest died on Sunday at the age of 94.

His death was reported and confirmed by Compton’s friends and an article in the Shelter Island Reporter.

As Edge of Night and longtime daytime fans know, Forrest played Monticello’s district attorney, Mike Karr.  He played this key role from 1971 until the show’s cancellation in 1984.  The show was originally titled “The Edge of Night” and eventually just became “Edge of Night”.   The soap which was steeped in murder mysteries ran on CBS from 1956–1975 and on ABC from 1975–1984,   In addition, Forrest along with his on-screen wife, Ann Flood (Nancy Karr) were one of the most popular duos in daytime.

Not only did Compton appear on EON, but he also had soap roles on As the World Turns, One Life to Live and All My Children.   In primetime, Forrest was best known for his role on Gomer Pyle: USMC opposite  Jim Nabors and Frank Sutton as Lieutenant Colonel Edward Gray.

In a heartwarming story where fan meets actor and helps him out (according to the Shelter Island Reporter) Compton was only slated to appear in two episodes a week for the next 13 weeks on The Edge of Night, when he needed an apartment in New York City near the studio, so when he heard about a one-bedroom on East 72nd he went to see Al, the super.  Forrest later learned that Al was such a devotee of  The Edge of Night that he locked his office door every day at 2 p.m. to watch uninterrupted. When Forrest mentioned that he had just been hired to play Mike Karr, the super said, “You’re getting that apartment.”’

Sharon Gabet who starred as Raven on Edge of Night, posted on Facebook, a tribute and remembrance of her former co-star: “Woody, as he was affectionately known to all of us on The Edge of Night, was a master professional, hilarious, smart, kind and gentle. I spoke with him a couple years ago on his birthday and he was active and happy in his retirement. Rest in peace, Woody, and give hugs and kisses to Larkin, Lois, Dennis, Nick, Joel, Irving and all the other EDGE alumni up there.  THE story about Woody. He was on EON when they were LIVE. It was brutal, but Woody was one of the best “straight face” men in the business. So he is doing a scene with Nancy his wife (the glorious Ann Flood – another “straight face” master). He walks in the kitchen and sits down and his line was supposed to be “Gee, it’s hard to get up in the morning.” as Nancy gave him his coffee. Instead, Mike Karr says on national TV, “Gee it’s hard to get IT up in the morning, Nancy.” There was pandemonium among the crew during the commercial break as you can imagine.”

Now below, watch the opening title sequence fro the The Edge of Night over the years, many of which feature Forrest as Mike Karr at the very opening or at the end as one of the series most well-known and beloved characters.

Robert Newman Shares Why There Has Not Been a Return to Springfield & ‘Guiding Light’ On-Screen Reunion

Robert Newman, best known to daytime soap fans as Josh Lewis on Guiding Light, sat down earlier this week for a wide-ranging interview on his career with Lauren Van Hemert via her You Tube Channel.

The timing of the posting of the interview as in-line with the date GL was officially canceled back on April 1, 2009.  The series began its historic run on TV from radio back on June 30, 1952, and ultimately aired its final episode on September 18, 2009.

From 1980 to 2009, Robert was one of the mainstays and key leading men of Springfield, and of course, the Josh and Reva (Kim Zimmer) love story is one of the most popular ever in the annals of daytime drama.

Right off at the top of the interview; Hemert noted that what she was asked most by fans of Newman’s and GL’s, when and if there will ever be a Guiding Light on-screen reunion.

Newman responded to the question: “I get that a lot.  That question is unfortunately in the hands of Procter and Gamble more than anything else … and they made it very clear over the years that they’re just not going to release the characters and copyrights to the show.”

Robert also added, “In terms of what you are talking about where there might be some sort of production, where there’s an actual reunion, and we see where Josh and Reva are today and that kind of thing (on their probably 15th marriage) … unless Procter and Gamble is somehow willing to shake loose the rights to the show, I don’t see it happening.”

Watch the full interview with the talented Mr. Newman below.

Then let us know, since P&G has made it very clear for the last several years they are out of the soap business completely, do you think its time they just sell the rights so viewers can see some sort of reboot down the line, especially for a show as beloved as Guiding Light? Comment below.
