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.

Drew Barrymore Daytime Talk Show Pilot In The Works

This fall, new talkers from Tamron Hall and Kelly Clarkson will be part of the daytime television landscape, and now comes word that Drew Barrymore may enter the space with a new talk show for her that is in development with the pilot being shot this coming week.

According to Variety, details of the proposed one-hour show are not all clear, but Drew is said to be one of the executive producers of the pilot episode and yet there is no showrunner attached to the project at this time.  Barrymore’s company, Flower Films is likely attached as well.

Back in 2016, Barrymore had a deal in place with Warner Brothers Telepictures for a talk show, but that never came to pass, in part to a lukewarm response from TV station groups at that time.

However now the new regime at CBS’ syndication arm is said to have ‘high hopes’ for the show and they feel that Drew will appeal and do well in the daytime arena.

Barrymore recently appeared in her third season of  Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet in its 30 episode season. Through her Flower Films she was been an executive producer on unscripted series including TLC’s Rattled and VH1’s Tough Love.

So, would you be interested. or intrigued to see what kind of show Drew Barrymore has to offer in daytime? Think she would be a good host? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

The Bold and the Beautiful Ratings Winner With Phoebe is Beth Reveal

Great news for The Bold and the Beautiful and their long-awaited payoff: that the little girl being raised by Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) as “Phoebe” is really Liam (Scott Clifton) and Hope’s (Annika Noelle) daughter, Beth, who they believed had died in the long and twisty baby switch storyline.

B&B was the highest rated daytime television show in the key 25-54 womens demo and the first time in the 32-year-old history of the CBS sudser that it has been atop of that demo. That is not only among the network soaps but all series genres in daytime for the week of August 5-9 –  quite the feat.

During the ratings week, Liam figured out that Phoebe was Beth, and eventually after Thomas’ (Matt Atkinson) manipulations told Hope the truth.

All this goes to show that as frustrated as viewers get wanting the truth to come out in a story they follow; when it finally does, they are along for the ride. Something B&B executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell does exceptionally well with big umbrella storylines that hold major ramifications for many on the canvas.

Congrats to Brad and the B&B team!

So, what do you think of BOLD’s performance in the ratings for the big week in story? Comment below

Kelly Monaco Addresses Billy Miller’s Departure From GH

In a post via her twitter account, General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco (Sam) shared her heartbreak on her longtime scene partner, Billy Miller’s (Drew) exit from the ABC daytime drama series.  This was the first time that Kelly addressed the situation in a public forum.

Miller came on to GH back in 2014 as Jason Morgan, following the departure of Steve Burton, who then wound up on Y&R.  When Burton returned to GH in 2017, Miller’s part was then turned-in-to, Jason’s twin, Drew Cain.

Through a great portion of Miller’s run on GH, he was paired romantically on -screen with Monaco and the duo were, and have remained, one of the most popular duo’s in daytime.

Monaco expressed the following in her message: “I feel like I have to address this situation. #BillyMiller ‘s untimely departure from #gh. Honestly, I can not come up with the words to describe how I feel about this decision… a decision that may not be what our audience thinks to be true. I’m heartbroken… more to come.”
