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.

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…”
