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 »

Public Relations Exec & Former CBS Watch Guru, Jeremy Murphy, New Book with Special Nod to ‘Santa Barbara’ Avail for Pre-Order

If you want an inside look into the colorful, often back-stabbing world of PR and entertainment, but with a very candid yet very humorous take, you are going to want to order and pick up your copy of Jeremy Murphy’s new book, F**k Off, Chloe, and as it turns out, the author himself includes a surprising tribute to the beloved Santa Barbara!

Murphy, who spent 14 years at CBS where he the creator and editor in chief of the high-profile magazine, CBS Watch, later launched a successful career with countless clients in his boutique PR agency, 360 bespoke.  The agency is known for clients in the fields of luxury, the arts, fashion/ beauty, hospitality, travel, media, start-ups and entrepreneurs.  In fact, former Days and RHOBH star, Lisa Rinna beauty brand, Rinna Beauty, has been one of his clients.

In the log lines for this new book, available for pre-order from Simon & Schuster, it details: ‘Public relations’ snarkiest publicist Jeremy Murphy expertly chronicles his hatred, love, indifference, amusement, and scorn for the profession in F*ck Off, Chloe. From entitled millennials to surly reporters, obnoxious clients, and cumbersome, color-coded “trackers,” Murphy takes a scalpel and glass of Châteauneuf-du-Pape to the PR industry in a searing, hilarious, and pissy voice that his own psychiatrist finds “deeply concerning.” His collection of annoyances shed light on the industry’s idiosyncrasies, insanities, contradictions, and past due invoices, providing an illuminating window into the dirty world of public relations not even Xanax can help. Complementing the scathing prose are color-in illustrations by artist Darren Greenblatt, creator of the “Ugly Lives of Beautiful People” sketch series.’

Murphy told Michael Fairman TV as to why soap fans may want to check out the book: “Any Santa Barbarian will love this because it finally says what needs to be said: best.show.ever.”  Jeremy is in indeed a hard core Santa Barbara fan.

On a personal note, Michael Fairman shared: “I used to work with Jeremy when he was an editor-in-chief and commissioned me to write profiles of celebrities, and it was always a fun journey to collaborate with him. This new book spoofs PR, journalism, TV and media, in an honest, unapologetic, but hysterical way.”

To pre-order, F**k Off, Chloe click here and look for its release in store and everywhere in March of 2022.
