Looks like Katie Couric’s talker Katie is getting ready to officially name their new executive producer after Katie’s  show runner pal and co-owner of Katie’s gabfest brand, Jeff Zucker, bolted the series and went to head up CNN!

According to Deadline.com, Michael Morrison will take over the reins from Zuker citing:  “Morrison’s appointment allows continuity as Zucker is slated to leave for his new job as president of CNN Worldwide at the beginning of next month.”

As for Morrison’s resume deadline revealed, “Morrison was most recently executive producer of The Martha Stewart Show for the show’s first and only season on Hallmark Channel. He was previously a programming consultant and exec producer at A&E and helped launch Late Night With Conan O’Brien.”

So what do you think soapers?  Can this changing of the guard help Katie in the ratings and improve the show, which is currently still is the number one new syndicated talk show? Or, do you think Morrison may water down the show to be as slow and monotone as Martha Stewart’s dismal series?  Weigh-in!

I just can not get into the Katie show..
It is much the same as all the talkers shows, noting special, the same old stuff.
It’s hard to believe that some can waste an hour of their day watching Katie..
I do not even bother to look in..

She has one ot the most disingenuous laughs I have ever heard. She’s just so plastic and phony and not warm.

And has a mouth on her like a truck driver when she is not on camera. Embarassed military officiers when she was on an airforce base that will go unmentioned. I literally detest the woman.

You said it Danica. I have never watched one second of Katie & never will. The tv goes off when GH does. I still find myself watching for OLTL at 1:00 central & GH at 2. I hate that the soaps are over at 2:00!

I will never watch Katie. Nothing is new or novel about her show. I would rather watch a bad Oprah rerun.

Screw Katie. I’ve heard that she’s working her crew to death with forced overtime and threats to their jobs if they don’t put in the time. The show is so understaffed b/c of her salary she’s working folks like crazy. Screw her.

‘Ozark’s’ Madison Thompson Joins the Cast of The Young and the Restless

There will be another new character on the canvas on CBS’ The Young and the Restless with casting news on Monday, that Madison Thompson had nabbed the new role of Jordan- a worldly young woman who will prove that there’s more than meets the eye.

According to Deadline, Madison starts work at CBS Television City on Tuesday, with her first episode set to air in late October.

If Thompson looks familiar she was recently seen in season 3 of Netflix’s hit drama, Ozark.   On that series, she played Erin, the 17-year-old daughter of Helen Pierce (Janet McTeer) who joined her mother as she moved to the Ozarks to help oversee the Byrdes’ operations.

The young actress has also been seen on on ABC’s Kevin (Probably) Saves the World.

Not only is Thompson an actress, but a freshmen at USC.

So, who do you think “Jordan” will be involved with in Genoa City as played by Madison Thompson? Comment below.

Nancy Lee Grahn Kicks-Off Her 25th Year as General Hospital’s Alexis; Thanks Fans & Shares: “What a Ride”

She’s one of the best of the best!  And on Saturday, Nancy Lee Grahn acknowledged the start of her 25th year as Alexis Davis on ABC’s General Hospital. 

Nancy, who daytime fans first loved on One Life to Live and then Santa Barbara, came to Port Charles and quickly became one of its leading mainstays.

On Twitter, marking the occasion, Nancy thanked her fans with this: “Wow! I start my 25th year on  @generalhospital  today. What a ride. It’s been one of my greatest pleasures to be connected to & supported by such a beautiful, loving, loyal #gh audience. We are and have always been in this together. I hope you can feel my most sincere virtual hug.”

Currently in story, Alexis just lost the new love of her life Neil and on Friday’s episode of GH, Alexis was blamed for his death by Neil’s brother when she tried to attend his memorial service.  Later, she landed at the Floating Rib with Valentin – but when he got into it with Ned and stepped outside, Alexis ordered a drink.  Not a good sign for this recovering alcoholic, and all this came on the heels of Alexis learning she has osteoporosis.

Through the years, story after story, beat after beat, we are lucky to have Nancy on our screens with her consistently riveting and honest performances.

What has been your favorite Alexis storyline through the years?  And … make sure to wish Nancy a ‘happy 25th’ via the comment section below.

Y&R Alum Max Ehrich Says He Was Blindsided By Breakup with Demi Lovato & Found Out Via Tabloid

For the first time, since the apparent split of former The Young and the Restless star, Max Ehrich(Ex-Fenmore) and pop singer, Demi Lovato, one of them has made a public comment in an usual but effective way.

Ehrich took to his Instagram Story on his Instagram account and stated “Imagine finding out status of your relationship through a tabloid.” That was followed by, “While (you’re) in the middle of filming a biopic movie about a pastor in a Christian church whose intention of the film is to help people. God bless.”

In an Instagram post following the split, Max shared “Jesus loves you.” in a typewriter font with a white background on Instagram, captioning the post with a heart, prayer hands and dove emoji. The comments on it were turned off and that is when he shared the same message on his Instagram Story.

From these posts it would seem that Ehrich was unaware of the dissolution of his engagement to Lovato which happened while he has been away in Atlanta shooting the movie Southern Gospel.  Additionally from reports, it seems Lovato called off the relationship.

But, a source told PEOPLE, “Demi made Max aware that the relationship was over and it was going to come out in the press.”

Lovato also made a post on her Instagram Story not addressing the break-up directly in which she zoomed on what it said on her t-shirt “dogs over people.” In addition, her engagement ring was absent from her left ring finger in the very short clip that is no longer on her IG Story,

So, do you think Max was blindsided? Did he know? As usual with Hollywood break-ups, there are two sides to every story.  Comment below.
