Last week as Julie Chen, Aisha Tyler, Sara Gilbert, Sheryl Underwood and Sharon Osbourne each revealed a never-before-known secret to the audience and to each other on the season four premiere of The Talk, the series was cleaning up in the ratings department! In fact, the CBS afternoon talker delivered it’s  largest weekly audience ever, according to Nielsen live plus same day ratings for the week ending September 15th!

 The Talk averaged 2.80 million viewers, up +20% over last year’s premiere audience of 2.33 million viewers.  Among women 25-54,  The Talk averaged 1.2/08, also up +20% over last year’s 1.0/06 and matching its all-time high in the demo.

And according to the Hollywood Reporter,  “This is the closest The Talk‘s audience has ever come to its main competitor, The View.  The momentum of The Talk‘s growth during such a pivotal year for The View should prove to be one of the more interesting daytime ratings stories over the 2013-14 season. ”

So after watching season four premiere of The Talk, or if you just watched our video clip coverage of the reveal of the co-hosts secrets which one touched you the most?  Aisha Tyler’s fertility struggles?  Julie Chen’s eye surgery to look less Asian?  Sara Gilbert’s story of dating then co-star Johnny Galecki and telling him she was gay, and living with the secret?  Sharon Osbourne having a fling with Jay Leno? Or Sheryl Underwood admitting her twin had died shortly after birth, and that her mother stabbed her father?  Comment below!

I will take the secrets of the Hugheses, Snyders, Walshes and others in Oakdale (AS THE WORLD TURNS) any day over these ratings-grab confessions, thank you.

I still miss ATWT, and I know I am not alone.

I miss ATWTs too…i recorded their upstairs/christmas special and watch it every christmas…The Talk confession episode was a publicity gimmick to attract more viewers…i didnt watch it plus Sarah Gilberts confession…i already read that somewhere else years ago.

You are not alone Iakovos. Cheap programming, the Talk, and to think this replaced a classic show such as ATWT. Sad, sad.

LOL the talk needed to prostitute the private lives of the hosts for ratings, so sad..

The only way this show has picked up viewers is if they’re forcing lifers in prison to watch it. Or it it’s turned on in airport lounges with no option to change the channel and no ability to crack the screen.

Absolute crud, with a group of hosts for whom that seem to come naturally.

The talk should do this secrets week regularly. Maybe they can convince guest hosts to reveal the same. Lots of frank discussions from secrets week. Best revelation goes to julie chen. Her revelation was not melodramatic like it is on sudsers. Julie chen’s revelation was relevant bec it touched on a lot of issues. Pressures of mainstream media’s narrow definition of beauty. Plastic surgery not for vanity but for a woman’s career growth. Tension between racial minority’s cultural identity and demands for career growth. Racism towards Asian americans w/c was very relevant given miss america racism and newest tv show from fox w/c is very racist towards Asian americans. Julie chen’s revelation should have been discussed for an entire episode. It’s too bad “progressive/liberal” hollywood refuses to create fictional Asian american chars to portray storylines w/c touch on issues from julie chen’s revelation. Those would be new kinds of dramatic storylines. Not the same old kind of storylines where everything has to be told from perspective of a white char.

The talk’s panel consists of 2 African american women and lesbian woman who’s white and a british foreigner who’s white and an Asian american woman. But it’s Asian american personality julie chen who is getting the most press from the talk’s revelations week.

Julie’s revelation obviously contributed the most to bringing the talk’s highest ratings and bringing press for herself and for the talk.

The topic of racism towards Asian americans brought the talk its highest ratings and coveted press.

Yet “progressive/liberal” hollywood refuses to cast more Asian americans w/ quality roles on tv shows. But Asian american actors get cast if a tv show and movie needs chars to bash and mock and be racist to and ridicule and bully.

Doubtful that the talk’s ratings would make “progressive/liberal” hollywood cast more Asian americans and deal w/ more Asian american issues thru talk shows and thru fictional chars.

Chloe Lanier’s New Short Film ‘The Reveal’ Releases First Trailer

As previously reported, Chloe Lanier, the actress who plays naughty Nelle Benson on ABC’s General Hospital, has been busy at work on a special project. And while Nelle is upset having just been denied parole on the ABC soap opera, (something tells us nothing will stop her from getting out of the slammer), Lanier on the other hand has been very excited about her new short film, The Reveal.

The Reveal in which Lanier stars, co-wrote, and co-directed along with her boyfriend, Kevan McClellan also has some very familiar faces along for the ride from Port Charles and Genoa City. That’s because Brytni Sarpy (Elena, Y&R) and Josh Swickard (Chase, GH) are also part of the film.

The action takes place at a gender reveal party for a baby, and according to the loglines of the short: “Zoe and James are a young couple attending their new-age friends gender reveal party. As they attempt to find their place amongst the eclectic group of party guests and friends, unsung wishes and hidden resentments begin to surface within their relationship.”

Watch the trailer from Lanier below.

Then, let us know if you are intrigued to see the short film when its out via the comment section below.

WATCH: Jonathan Jackson + Enation’s New Music Video “The Days Are Evil”

Five-time Daytime Emmy winner from General Hospital, and former Nashville star, Jonathan Jackson (Ex-Lucky, Ex-Avery) has released a new music video for the new single “The Days Are Evil” along with his band Enation.

The music video features shots of Jackson in a very dark incarnation, and the track will also appear on Jackson + Enation’s upcoming album due out later this fall, Ultraviolet Empire.

Jonathan says of the new album: “Our new album, Ultraviolet Empire, is a throwback record. It’s a record we played together live in the studio. Most of the songs are one take -just letting the band play.  It was amazing playing with our co-producer Colin Linden and capturing something so raw and visceral.”

This will be the band’s follow-up to their 2017 album  Anthems for the Apocalypse and their successful 2018 tour in Europe opening for Echo & The Bunnymen,

Check out the music video featuring Jonathan released this week below.

Then, let us know, should Lucky return to Port Charles for the Nurses’ Ball with his band and play a tune off the new album next spring? Will Jonathan come home to GH for a guest appearance? Will you be checking out the new music from him in the coming months? Comment below.

TODAY: Ron Carlivati’s Dad Appears on DAYS

Be on the lookout on Friday’s October 18th episode of Days of our Lives for one of the shows “superfans” who pops in Salem.  That is when the father of DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati appears as an extra on the NBC soap opera.

Carlivati Sr., who is very proud of his son, looks to be donning a medical lab coat as a physician in a photo shared on social media along with Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), one of Salem’s most busy and most respected doctors.

Ron told SOD about his dad appearing on the show that he writes: “It’s funny because I’ve been in soaps for over 20 years and my dad would watch to see my name on the credits but rarely get into the show. Somehow, I don’t know what clicked in for him, he’s obsessed with Days of our Lives. He does not miss it.”

As to how his dad became an extra for the day: “We were at the studio and Albert Alarr, our co-executive producer, comes up and meets my parents and turns to my dad and says, ‘We’re gonna be shooting some scenes in the hospital next. How would you like to be in them?’ I honestly had no idea this was coming. I also fainted.”
