What does this have to do with OLTL? When I look here I would like to see news about OLTL. Not CC or TP or anything else. I’m so not interested in all this filler, I don’t care one bit about TP or CC or most of these articles. How about some news about PP and the lawsuit?

It’s time to put the RIP back on OLTL & AMC and call it a day. ]-(

Tika Sumpter and Peter Parros are both OLTL alumni. Eva Temargo was on Passions…. Parros was also on ATWT and Y&R. You cannot dictate was stories Fairman runs on his own website.

Give this show a try… it grows on you so very quickly.. it is as good as everyone says. I wouldn’t miss it !

Please, this show can’t hold a candle to OLTL. I want to support Oprah and Tyler but this is just a awful show…imo. I wish Oprah would had invested into OLTL and even AMC. At least there was some substance and quality to it. IMO….ratings are good and are a reflection of how desperate people are for drama/soap shows… Please do better than this.

Don’t forget us outside the us.

I thoroughly enjoyed this week’s episode of The Haves and the Have Nots, it was excellent. I’m a OLTL fan, but that is irrelevant, the show did not replace OLTL.

I wanted to like this show, I really did! I even set my DVR to record the series when it first came on. But after watching the first episode, I deleted it off the DVR and never watched again.
I’m shocked it’s still on the air, and trust me it wouldn’t be, if it was on mainstream network!

you should view the 4th episode when Hanna prays….. what an amazing scene !

I absolutely love this show. Love love love the love hate between the judge and his wife. Love her and the way she puts him in his place. I watched the first episode and fell in love watched every episode and can’t wait for the new season to come about. It is awesome to see how tyler always puts God and Church and faith in his stories. He is totally awesome writer. Love it.

‘The Talk’ Renewed For 15th and Final Season to End in December; Does Its Cancellation Make Room for ‘The Gates’?

Things just got very interesting over at CBS daytime with the announcement today that The Talk is going to end its run on the network after its 15th season, and that season looks to be shortened as the series will come to its conclusion in December of 2024.

In a joint statement, Amy Reisenbach, President, CBS Entertainment and David Stapf, President, CBS Studio, shared, “The Talk broke new ground when it launched 14 years ago by returning daytime talk to CBS with a refreshing and award-winning format. Throughout the years, it has been a key program on CBS’ top rated daytime line-up as it brought timely, important and entertaining topics and discussions into living rooms around the globe.”

Reisenback and Stapf added, “It goes without saying that hosting and producing a year-round talk show is no easy task, and we express our sincere gratitude to our amazing hosts Akbar Gbajabiamila, Amanda Kloots, Natalie Morales, Jerry O’Connell and Sheryl Underwood, our Executive Producer/Showrunner Rob Crabbe and the hardworking producing team and crew.

Giving props to those who co-hosted or worked on the show through the years including: Sara Gilbert, Julie Chen Moonves, Carrie Ann Inaba Leah Ramimi, Marissa Janet Winokur, Holly Robinson Peete, Eve, Aisha Tyler, and Sharon Osbourne, the joint statement added, “We also want to acknowledge our former show hosts and colleagues who contributed throughout the seasons. We truly appreciate the skill, creativity, and dedication everyone involved brought to the show every day.  And of course, we thank the numerous guests who appeared, and the millions of viewers who tuned in daily. For the final season, we plan to celebrate the show and give it the proper sendoff it deserves when it concludes in December 2024.”

While no firm decision or announcement has been given at this time, it seems most likely that The Talk’s time slot could be given to the new soap opera in development The Gates from CBS Studio Ventures and from longtime soap opera writer. Michele Val Jean.  As previously reported, The Gates features the lives of a wealthy Black family who reside in a posh, gated community.

The Talk was originally the brainchild of Sara Gilbert, who had developed the show when it launched back 2010 and it replaced the beloved As the World Turns which went off the air after 54 years when CBS canceled it.

So, what do you think of The Talk being canceled? Will this make room for The Gates to begin to air in its spot beginning in 2025? Share your reactions to the news via the comment section.
