I don’t care ..
I don’t watch cooking shows, they are bad for peoples health.
They watch what is the artery clogger of the day and then prepare it.
Not to mention the poundage accumulation from preparing and eating that stuff.

It should have been cancelled years ago.Absolute,mindless junk,nobody cooks in this country.We are the fattest country on earth because nobody cooks.These food shows are the cheapest garbage to produce.However, the ratings were so bad that abc was not making a profit.In september when good morning america in the afternoon starts,it will be trump coverage everyday.In the fall of 2019 nbc will put today in the afternoon at 1pm.

Well, that is not true, many people cook in this country. Sadly, it appears the “new generation” would rather eat out and buy food that maybe someone dropped on the floor and put it back on the plate, etc. Cooking your own food is much healthier than eating out, besides everyone cannot afford the ridiculous prices restaurants charge for meals.

Talk. game, cooking show are all daytime can afford to air.
Those shows have no casts to pay usually a host or two and no scriptwriters etc.
daytime tv is Junk TV.
I can’t imagine anybody recording a daytime show to watch later ..
(the soaps are the one and only exceptions)

Bah ha ha ha! This made me laugh because I could just hear your delivery, Jaybird. I agree–even the picture of these three caterwauling foodies irritated me. It’s like I could hear them screaming just from looking at the picture.

When I heard Carla Hall was coming on GH, I first thought Frank contacted Ellen Holly to reprise her OLTL character — now that would have been worth watching!

Well, they had a good run and lasted longer than I thought they would. Good luck to all three chefs especially Carla, formerly a contestant on Top Chef years ago, baby, you’ve come a long way. Happy Trails.

Get rid of the view (that show isnt worthy of capital letters) and I’ll be thrilled. We have enough news to cover everyone’s political orientation. Bring back the classic soaps; even if a half hour each.

‘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.

However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the production shutdown left them with only 18 episodes tht could be completed.

That means, as first announced during last night’s episode of Empire via voice-over: “Get ready for the shocking final three episodes of ‘Empire,’”  that reveal let viewers of Empire know there was change in plans.”  Now, the shortened season and series finale end on FOX on April 21st.

Reports also note that episode 19 was partially shot and that footage of that unfinished episode will be cut into the finale.

As to what happens with the character of Jamal Lyon played by Jussie Smollett, who everyone knows ran into significant trouble with the law; on last reports executives said he would not be back for the final episodes of the series, although there has still have been mentions of the character throughout season 6.
