The Season Premiere Of THE TALK To Feature Hosts & Three CBS Soap Ladies Sans Make-Up!

There is one thing that can be said about CBS’s daytime gabfest, The Talk!  The producers and the executive behind-the-scenes, CBS Daytime’s Angelica McDaniel, know how to utilize their network line-up to cross promote for tune-in, especially their soaps!

Take note Katie Couric! Even though you are a new syndicated talker, you are airing on over 95%  of ABC affiliates in the country.  So perhaps having a guest or two from General Hospital during your premiere week might be the thing to do, since you insisted you wanted the soap as your lead-in, when push came to shove.

But back to The Talk.  The increasing popular series is doing it right for their season three premiere on September 10th when the ladies of the panel: Sharon Osbourne, Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Sheryl Underwood and Aisha Tyler appear without make-up!  But here is the kicker! So do their guests who happen to be The Young and the Restless’ Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki), and The Bold and the Beautiful’s Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke).  Along for the no make-up day episode is also film star, Jamie Lee Curtis.

The Talk airs weekdays at 2PMEST/1PMPST and CST.   So will you be tuning in to see The Talk?  Do you agree that they have been successfully cross-promoting their CBS soap line-up when possible on the series?  Weigh-in!

I don’t watch THE TALK and never have. However I see the promos and I have to admit that they do a fair amount of promoting the soaps.

IF ONLY the network would do the same it would help the genre succeed.

Oh no. Sorry. That’s the day General Hospital moves to 2:00 PM. GH wins all the time. Maybe The Talk should move to 3:00! I’ll watch it then!

I do enjoy The Talk, and have been watching it since the brilliance (not) of ABC took our OLTL off for their HAPPILY failed Revoltion lol. But know that GH is being moved to 2pm its going to be all GH. Sorry ladies of The Talk!!

For their cross-promotion efforts, I give only partial credit to THE TALK, a weak entry into the endless chatfest that daytime has become. In the same way the AMC and OLTL fans still crusade against ABC for those cancellations, I remain upset and disappointed in the loss of AS THE WORLD TURNS for this hour of empty air in the 2 o’clock slot. (For the record, I also miss GUIDING LIGHT.)

I still believe daytime drama will make a comeback somehow. Everything old is new again.

No, I will not. That time slot was always the one hour a day I dedicated to watching a soap. First Another World, then As the World Turns and then, sadly, the final year of One Life to Live. Now with General Hospital opposite it, there’s not a chance that I’ll be watching. Not that I ever did before.

I can’t wait to see everyone without makeup it is going to be fun to watch.

That’s one way to scare off the viewers. A couple of those gals would give me nightmares…in fact one does WITH makeup!

I loved only Leah Remni on the talk I will not watch with that Julie or the fool what’s her name oh Sheryl

Never watched The Talk, never will. I can’t forget my favorite soaps- ATWT & GL. Guess what- I want to watch soaps & will watch whatever network they are on.

The Talk–pure swill.

Even after a couple of years, it is still unbelievable that they cancelled As The World Turns for this crapfest. ATWT was among the best written, best acted soaps ever–too good actually. The masses prefer the much inferior CBS soaps that are still on.

Why are you writing about The Talk? FYI–appearing without makeup has been done many times, from Oprah on down. It’s as recycled as the “hosts.”

Christy
Christy

No. I won’t watch it. Never have seen it either. I have my antenna set for ABC and that’s it…. or DVDs!

but seeing how none of these gals are from OLTL or GH, I really won’t be missing anything (to me anyways!)

I do enjoy “The Talk”, occasionally, and am so happy that they are giving a platform to their network soap partners like this! It’s about time that the actors on our favorite soaps are featured!!! Can’t wait to see The Stafford, MTS and company mix it up with the gals; sans makeup!

I love this idea. “The Talk” is definitely an amazing medium and chat series. I cannot await its return on 9/10.

Never watched The Talk, never will. But I think this a smart move given the competition in that timeslot come Sept 10.

Nathalie Kelley Says She Is Not Returning To DYNASTY For Season 2

In a surprise admission during an interview with E Online, one of the core members of CW’s Dynasty reboot, Nathalie Kelley revealed she is not filming season 2 of the primetime sudser when it resumes filming next month.

Kelley plays Blake’s (Grant Show) wife, Cristal, who ended the season one cliffhanger in a precarious predicament after being shot by Claudia Blaisdel (Brianna Brown), while the Carrington mansion went up in flames, as well.

Kelley tells E! “I won’t be returning for Season 2.”  She went on to say as of the fate of Cristal:  ” Is it a coma? Is it death? … I actually don’t know. But I know that I’m not going to Atlanta in July, that I’m staying (in Los Angeles) … I’ve got my life back.”

Dynasty returns for its all-new season beginning on Friday, October 12th.

So, disappointed to hear there will be no Nathalie on season 2 of Dynasty?  How do you think they will write Cristal out of the story:  Coma … her body found will not be found … or is she truly dead?  Share your theories in the comment section below.

ABC Officially Picks Up ‘Roseanne’ Spinoff, ‘The Conners’ With No Roseanne Barr Participation

Word on late Thursday afternoon is that ABC has now officially moved forward and gave a pick-up to the Roseanne spinoff series, The Conners.   

As viewers know, there had been speculation that the series would revolve around Sara Gilbert’s character of Darlene, but now the other concept with the entire family in the title is the direction the new series will go (although it is said to be the “working title” of the series.)

The Conners received a ten episode order and will make the fall TV schedule, and will reside on Tuesday night’s on ABC at 8PM.

Roseanne Barr’s controversial tweets led to the network’s swift decision to cancel her series.

In the new deal, Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in The Conners after reaching a settlement with series producer, Tom Werner.

The Conners will feature the rest of the Roseanne core cast including: John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, and Michael Fishman.

According to Deadline:  It is unclear how exactly Barr’s character will be written off but ABC describes it as “a sudden turn of events.”  On the new show, after a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family – Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. – grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns – with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails.

In a statement ABC commented: “The Conners’ stories demonstrate that families can always find common ground through conversation, laughter and love. The spinoff will continue to portray contemporary issues that are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago.”

A major turning point to greenlight the series came when the fact that the new series does not feature Barr’s character Roseanne Conner, which rights to which she is said to maintain, paved the way for an agreement with no Barr.

So, glad to hear The Conners will continue sans Roseanne? Comment below.
