Now this ought to be fun!  To honor what we think is the best primetime soap of them all, Knots Landing .  It’s  difficult to fathom it’s been 20 years since the series concluded. However, the ladies of CBS daytime’s The Talk are staging a reunion for fans of the long running and terribly missed CBS soap that will include the three leading ladies of the cul-de-sac!

Yup, that’s right, Michele Lee (Karen), Joan Van Ark (Valene) and Donna Mills (Abby)! Make sure to tune-in next Friday, January 18th at 2PMEST/1PMST!

Now the big question on many fans minds has been: With the success of the Dallas reboot on TNT, might a Knots Landing reboot be far behind?  Think about the possibilities!

So soapers, who is your favorite character from “Knots” from the above? Karen, Valene, or Abby?  Let us know!

The Dallas reboot works because there is a mixture of the old and the new- if Knots could capture that same flavor then I would watch it. But either way, I will be watching the Talk that day, just see the gals who paved the way for Desperate Housewives and the like

They were all great! Such good stories I do think the baby storyline was the best ever done. That shot at the end of the season 1985 when Val is walking up to the door and the guy is taking off with the babies how do you top that.

Yes I know they could do the same thing with Knots. You have Bobby and Betsy that would be in their late 20’s. Their is Karen’s adopted daughter Meg (Greg Sumner daughter with Karen’s friend Laura). Maybe Abby’s daughter Olivia has a teenager too. They could try to get Brian Austin Green back as Abby’s son Brian. My favorite was Abby but loved all three of these leading ladies. The best bad girl was Jill Bennet who tried to kill Val! I LOVED this show!!

I will also add Joan Van Ark deserved an emmy that season 1984-85 she knocked it out of the park. I hate what she did personally with the plastic surgery but she is one hell of an actress as all of them were.

They would of course have to get Nicollette Sheridan and Bill Devane back too.

Oye! This would trump all that is soap… if Knot’s Landing was re-booted. These ladies kicked ass.

I will be watching this episode.

I wonder if TNT is thinking of a “Knots Landings” return. If they make enough money from Dallas, maybe they will consider it. Joan Van Ark and Ted Shackleford are appearing on Dallas: Season 2 (TNT). That would be cool! 15 weeks of Dallas, followed by 15 weeks of Knots Landing. Oh and to answer your question, I would like to see Donna Mills return. She knows how to make an entrance.

Actually, there were more young children on “Knots Landing” than “Dallas” when these shows ended . On “Knots”, the series had Meg McKenzie, Bobby Ewing, Betsy Ewing and I believe a couple of younger offspring were included in the follow up movie while “Dallas” only had John Ross Ewing, Christopher Ewing and Cliff & Afton’s daughter. “Knots” seems like it would have more potential for a “reboot” focusing on the younger crowd than “Dallas” as it wouldn’t have to introduce as many new younger characters. That being said, I think both Michele Lee and Joan Van Ark might be an… Read more »

My favorite nightime soap! Knots Landing was fabulous! I will never forget the scene where Laura leaves her husband and child, driving off to die alone. And her tapes to her daughter Meg … don’t let them tell you a red head can’t wear red. This show mixed humor and heart wrenching emotional storytelling. I shed many a tear watching Knots. The relationships, especially between Karen and Val, Karen and Laura, Laura and Cigi were amazing. I will be watching on Friday.

Thanks for mentioning Laura. She and Abby were always my favorite characters. The show really lost a lot when, during the same season, Laura and Lilliemae were both written off the show.

It seems like the reunion shows basically ignored Laura while focusing on Karen and Val. Maybe that is why I have not liked them.

Even this appearance on “The Talk” is interesting…………Constance McCashin (“Laura”) noticeably is not identified as one of the actresses set to appear and I’d bet $$$$ that none of them EVER mention Laura when they chat about the show.

I seem to have the idea that McCashin in real life wasn’t as nice and sweet as Laura and didn’t associate with the show after her departure. Would love to see this show again.

Has anyone actually watched the “Dallas” reboot that closely? LOTS of storylines have been altered from the history of the original show (i.e. Miss Ellie signed off the deed to Southfork to Bobby during the last season via Clayton, where in the reboot, he didn’t have them; Miss Ellie going to a sanitarium when it never happened; John Ross and Christopher growing up with Elaina and her brother when they were never mentioned, etc.) Besides that, how are Gary and Val going back to “Dallas” when the Ewings were never mentioned on “Knots Landing” again after the dream season –… Read more »

Kristina Wagner Shares She’s Back On Contract at General Hospital

This past week, General Hospital fans were thrilled with the news that longtime fan favorite, Kristina Wagner (Felicia) was on her way back to the soap opera to tape new episodes.  However on Saturday, the actress shared even bigger news.  She is back on contract at the ABC daytime drama series.

Kristina revealed via her Instagram: “I’m pleased to announce I just finished my first work week on contract with General Hospital. The good people there have made it a well oiled machine. I’m so impressed with the way they navigate the Covid protocols. It’s not easy but we’ll worth it. We’ve got some fun storylines coming up. I’ve been thrown in the middle of a current storyline and I think Felicia’s part in it gives it some color. Stay tuned!”

Earlier in the week on Tuesday via Twitter, Kristina expressed: “Tomorrow I head back to work on General Hospital! Lucky me. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of that family once again. Here we go. More to come. Felicia Scorpio rides again.”

Wagner began her GH role as Felicia Cummings, the Aztec princess back in 1984 and has appeared on and off the show since then.

So what storyline do you think Felicia will get thrown into? Will she return to Port Charles to help Maxie (Kirsten Storms)?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

‘Dr. Oz Show’ Taken Off the Air in NY and PA Due to Senate Run; Daphne Oz ‘The Good Dish’ to Fill Time Slot

In light of his announcement that he will be running as a republican senate candidate in the state of Pennsylvania, Dr Oz’s daytime talk and medical show, The Dr. Oz Show, is being taken off the air in key markets in New York and Pennsylvania, according to the Fox Station Group.

According to Deadline’s sources, Fox TV Stations proceeded with pulling the Sony Pictures TV-distributed syndicated series because of the prospect of being forced to give other political candidates running in Pennsylvania equal time, expressing that it “would be a nightmare for us, there was no way we were going to be able to do that.”

In its place, look for Dr. Oz’s daughter, Daphne Oz, to be the fill-in with her show.

Starting on January 18th, Daphne’s The Good Dish, will take over the time slot during the duration of her father’s political campaign.  This potentially could go all the way through November of 2022, if Oz remains in the race through election day.

Last fall, Fox TV Stations renewed The Dr. Oz Show for two more years which gave it life through 2023.

So, do you think more stations will go bye-bye and have The Dr. Oz show pulled? What do you think of daughter Daphne’s series as the fill-in? Comment below.

General Hospital Has No Immediate Plans to Recast the Role of Jason Morgan Following Steve Burton’s Departure

According to a report from Variety, ABC’s General Hospital is not planning on recasting the role of Jason Morgan at this time, following the exit of Steve Burton.

The two-time Daytime Emmy winning star was let-go from the soap after not adhering to their Covid-19 vaccine mandate.

The mandate went into effect on November 1st and in story, the series wrote Burton out, but still left wiggle room for the character to return.

Jason was buried under a rubble when a cave collapsed on top of him, while he was trying to apprehend arch-villain, Peter August (Wes Ramsey).

In his exit announcement on Instagram, Burton did express: “Maybe one day if these mandates are lifted, I can return and finish my career as Jason Morgan.”  Steve had played the role of Jason since 1991, but with a four-year break at Y&R, before returning to the role in 2017.

Now whether down the line, GH does eventually recast Jason remains to be seen.

So, it looks like Jason will be off the canvas for awhile, and Port Charles will continue to grieve for him.

So, what are your thoughts? Should GH leave Jason off the canvas? Should they recast down the line?  Comment below.
