The one afternoon talk show that truly uses synergy well is CBS’s The Talk!   From consistently inviting guests from the network’s two daytime dramas, The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful, to promoting it’s primetime line-up, and throwing in a dash of current pop culture news and views, the series has just garnered a significant ratings spike for the week ending October 5th.

According to TV By The Numbers, “The Talk posted across-the-board increases in viewers and key women demographics versus the comparable week last year, according to Nielsen live plus same day ratings for the week ending Oct. 5. The Talk was up +23% in viewers (2.25m from 1.83m), +13% in women 25-54 (0.9/06 from 0.8/05), +17% in women 18-49 (0.7/05 from 0.6/04) and +25% in women 18-34 (0.5/03 from 0.4/02).  Season-to-date, The Talk  is up +21% in viewers (2.29m from 1.90m), +11% in women 25-54 (1.0/06 from 0.9/05), +25% in women 18-34 (0.5/03 from 0.4/02) and even in women 18-49 (0.7/05).”

Last week’s numbers,  which come out later this Friday, shall be interesting to see as well!  Joshua Morrow of The Young and the Restless was a guest co-host and the series celebrated regular co-host, Sharon Osbourne’s 60th birthday during the ratings period.

So soapers, are you tuning in to The Talk?  Let us know your thoughts!

Despite the series it replaced, my fave soap opera, I do love the ladies of ‘The Talk’. They’re much more interesting to watch than the snore fest that is ‘The View’. I hope they continue to gain and become the no.1 talk show for a group of women against their competition.

I hate this show, but its no wonder they’re gaining viewers, because rival show Days sucks balls right now! People are tuning out of Days and watching Talk!

Fortunately, this “ratings spike” isn’t hurting their new competition, GH, which was also up significantly from the same week a year ago (from a 1.7/5 and 2.2 million viewers the week of Oct. 3-7, 2011 to a 2.0/7 and 2.7 mil. this year). It’s good to see that there are enough viewers for both shows to thrive.

Sorry, I refuse to watch it, or any other talk show that’s replaced a soap. Nope networks, you cannot and did not “train” me. I tune into GH at 2, instead. TV goes off at 3. I still miss my 2 all time favs, As the World Turns and Guiding Light. After ATWT, I really got into OLTL. That’s gone too (I continue to ask…why??).

Agree Shelly. I cannot even stand the promos that run during B&B for this loud awful show. I guess I hate the VIew even more but will NEVER watch one second of anything but a soap during the day. DAMN IT. I LOVED ATWT, GL, OLTL, AMC, Loving, RH, Santa Barbara, every soap ever. I miss them all. I cherish & watch every second of every soap still on the air. It takes me hours to catch up on weekends but I record them in every room in my house on every possible device, I am a DIE HARD SOAP… Read more »

“The Talk” is on at the same time as GH in my area, but even with a DVR, I will never regularly watch this show. The ONLY time I record it is if a soap star is on and I only watch their segment. The rest gets deleted. I hate obnoxious Sheryl, and Julie lost all credibility with me when she started hosting “Big Brother”…another waste-of-time show. I don’t have an opinion about the rest of the gals, but they’re all just a bad as The View ladies when it comes to all talking at once and trying to out-yell… Read more »

THE TALK is just not very good. And as for CBS and its newfound synergy, well, where was this cross-promotion and such for AS THE WORLD TURNS and GUIDING LIGHT? Although I am glad the Eye network is supporting THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS and THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL, I lament the cancellations in recent years of my favorites.

I am forward thinking enough to hold out hope it will be CBS who will relight the daytime drama fire somehow. Everything old is new again, the song lyric goes!

All My Children

Mark Consuelos on the All My Children Primetime Reboot: “I Know They’re Going to Bring Back Some Fan Favorites”

On Friday, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) was a guest on the CBS afternoon series, The Talk, where he shared his excitement and some insight into the upcoming All My Children primetime reboot, Pine Valley, in development at ABC..

As previously reported, Mark and his wife Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley, AMC) are two of the executive producers on the project.

Consuelos shared on the reboot:All My Children was such a big part of my life and my wife’s life. And you know, I met my wife there obviously, had kids, became a young man on that show, and we got the opportunity to reboot the primetime version and the idea was brought to us, and we’re so excited.  Of all the things that we’ve ever announced that we’re going to do, this is one of the biggest responses we’ve got from our fans. They’re so excited.  It’s a big piece of TV that’s been missing for such a long time, and we’re going to bring it back.”

When avid soap fan and The Talk co-host, Sheryl Underwood, posed a major question to Consuelos that has been on longtime All My Children fans minds, she got a solid response from him.

Sheryl was trying to get some tea on who might appear in the reboot, when she asked, “Is it going to be the Cortlandts and the Warners? Is it going to be everybody?” Consuelos then responded with: “I know they’re going to bring back some fan favorites, and it will take place in Pine Valley, and I’m really, really excited.”

You can watch a portion of Mark’s virtual visit on The Talk below.

Then let us know, which AMC characters do you want to see back and on the primetime series, Pine Valley?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

General Hospital

Lexi Ainsworth Teases Her Return to General Hospital

With her father Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) presumed dead (although viewers know he is very much alive with amnesia), it looks like Kristina is on her way back to Port Charles – which would be a welcome return to the role for Daytime Emmy winner Lexi Ainsworth.

Rumors began circulating on Inauguration day Wednesday, when Ainsworth shared a pic on her Instagram Story of her watching the ceremonies from a dressing room at Prospect Studios in Los Angeles, where GH is taped.

Later, after reports had surfaced on social media that Ainsworth might be returning to her signature role, the actress shared some of those on her Instagram Story as well, which was seen as her way of confirming she is back on the show.

Lexi has been recurring on General Hospital for the last several years, so there is no telling how long she will be on-screen this time.

While there has been no official confirmation from GH, chances are that if there is a funeral ahead for Sonny, Kristina of course would be there to mourn her father. Stay tuned.

So, excited that Lexi will be back on-air on GH? Comment below.
