THE TALK's Aisha Tyler Receives Special Surprise from NATAS On Daytime Emmy Telecast Mishap!

May I have the wrong envelope, please! That may have been the mantra of The Talk’s Aisha Tyler who literally wowed those in attendance, and those at home, watching the broadcast of the 40th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards on Sunday June 16th on HLN!

As fans know, Aisha was handed the wrong envelope for the category her and her The Talk co-stars, Sheryl Underwood, Julie Chen, Sarah Gilbert, and Sharon Osbourne, were presenting during the live event.  Aisha saved the day noticing the envelope and the winner in it, was not for the category they were presenting for talk shows, because we later learned that when she opened it, the winner read, “The Bold and the Beautiful”!

NATAS sent a special floral arrangement and a letter to surprise Aisha on yesterday’s episode of the CBS hit talk show, which contents were read to Aisha by Sharon Osbourne.  It read: “Dear Aisha:  We love you and thank you for being so on top of your job as a presenter! And, for turning a potential disaster into one of the most press-worthy and fun moments of the evening! Dinner and cocktails are on us, the next time you are in New York!  We love you, from everyone at the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.”

Was the outside of the envelope mislabeled?

That is nice they sent her flowers and that she was awake when she opened it!

I think NATAS owes Aisha a helluva lot more than just flowers and dinner. I think they should tap her to host the next one of these if they have any say in the matter. Very classy on their part, I approve. And just cuz I’m sure it’s not said NEARLY enough, HLN did the worst job in the history of the Daytime Emmys. EVER. It was a pimping of Robin Meade, and that’s all it was, and it was obvious, and it sucked. I care about the Daytime genre. I hate the lack of respect that was shown to the awards ceremony by HLN. I’m proud of Aisha.

It really was one of the worst Emmys in quite a while.

I thought this years Emmy telecast was an improvement over last years, even with the mistakes. It certainly was millions of times better than the 2 that were from Las Vegas!

Ellen DeGeneres Signs On To Continue Her Talk Show For Three More Years

After rumors were swirling that Ellen DeGeneres was considering moving on from her highly successful daytime talk show after 16 years, all of that was kiboshed, when earlier this week on Tuesday, Ellen announced herself that The Ellen DeGeneres Show would continue on for three more years through 2022.  DeGeneres inked a new deal to stay put.

In her video announcement to her studio and at-home audience, she expressed: “From the beginning, I said this show was going to be like a relationship. We’ve been through the good, the bad, the ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ phase. It’s been a lot of fun and 16 years is a pretty good run. Sometimes in a relationship, you need to take a break. But I don’t. You’re stuck with me. I just signed for three more years.”

General Hospital’s New Opening Title Sequence

Last Friday on the May 17th episode of ABC’s General Hospital, viewers took note of a new version of the opening title sequence of the daytime drama series.

Some thought perhaps it was tied to the GH Nurses’ Ball episodes since that is when it debuted, but in fact, it turns out it is the new updated title sequence moving forward.

With slower images of the cast, new theme music, and the end graphic plate bringing back the hospital image; thus far fans have seemed to like the new and improved version from what was previously airing.

A GH spokesperson told Michael Fairman TV on the change: “We ‘opened it up’ so that we could better feature our amazing cast.  And the back plate of the hospital is to honor our longtime GH fans.  The new music was composed by Paul Glass.”

So, what do you think of the new opening title sequence featuring the slides of the characters/cast in Port Charles, the pace of the new theme, and the retro use of the GH hospital image? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
