I feel the writing lately on Y&R is terrible. So dragged out, the new Adam it’s been well over a year.

Cool..CBS rules in the ratings..I am sure is all about 18-49, and there is when ABC gets more ratings.

I am not sure about that, Omar. Recent news reports have come out about how The Nielson ratings have been somewhat unreliable and erroneous. I read that they erroneously made it look like GH had higher ratings in that demographic than it really did. In any case, I don’t look at the soaps as competing with each other. Rather, they are competing against other afternoon programming genres such as talk shows, cooking shows and game shows. Any rise in ratings for any soap is good news for the soap opera ratings genre period and will help sustain their existence. So,… Read more »

Thanks for that update, I did not know Harry..AND yes any gain on any of the 4 soaps is good news for the genre…There is still so many displaced soap viewers out there that stop watching daytime soaps after their soaps got cancelled..If those fans tune in to one or more of the remaining 4, ratings for genre will rise some more!! I just wish the networks will work hard at trying to lure young viewers via advertising and promotions..We need a new generation of viewers, once we all drop dead, LOL.

Great news Young and The Restless is on fire now, The ratings really prove that. I love Gina Tagnoni as the new Phyllis. Gina is a terrific actress, I am so happy Gina is back in daytime, where she belongs.

Agreed–Y&R is hitting it out of the ball park these days. Not a fast forward moment to be found. Even the Winters’ family is interesting.

Neil being blind has turned him into an acting champ! Shame on Devon! Cane, how can he stand by and watch this going on? Neil will eventually regain his eye sight and he will see things that will confirm his suspicions! I see him keeping his recovery a secret until he gets Devon and Hillary right where he wants them. I cannot believe the Winters family is actually entertaining again!

Bah ha ha! And, Mark? I adore Peter Bergman but he and Kelly (love Cady too) are rather somnolent inducing together.
jack looks like a deer stuck in the cross lights while Phyllis rapidly and intensely interrogates him about what has been going on for the last year.

This is good news for the cbs soaps. Y&R was great last week with the Shick wedding and the return of Phyllis.

I love Y&R…and, I love Gina Tognoni…not with Jack, though…ugh!!!!!!
And, as much as I lavish my admiration on Gina, I hope I will stop comparing her to Michelle…it isn’t fair to Ms Tognoni. I chide myself because Gina is an outstanding protagonist.

Always loved these shows. Y and R my all time favorite. I like all the new character changes, it gives others a chance to show their acting abilities.

On B&B I’m loving the sexy Caroline/Ridge storyline. It’s what soaps are all about. Two gorgeous people working together, fighting their feelings, while Ridge goes for broke to win the CEO position and Maya schemes to break up Rick and Caroline. Fans like me must be tuning in to see them because this is one of B&B top stories. Go B&B!

Can someone explain to me as we rejoice over Y&R’s ratings why Nikki made a deal to meet with Ian as long as he agreed to testify that Dylan didnt kill him. What the? I mean Paul heard Nikki talking to Ian and Paul is the Chief. What more does he need to release Dylan. Ian is alive! Why is Dylan still in jail? What did I miss?

Paul knew Ian wasn’t dead and was setting Dylan up for his murder but he needed proof of this. So a plan was devised that Nikki would put an ad in the newspaper asking Ian to contact her. If he did, they would use Nikki as bait to entrap Ian, which would prove Dylan didn’t kill him, but also so they could arrest Ian for kidnapping Mariah. When Ian contacted Nikki she had to give the impression her reason for wanting to meet with him was for Dylan’s sake. They had to give Ian the impression his plan to frame… Read more »

‘This Is Us’ Season 6 to have Midseason Premiere and 18 Episode Order as It Concludes

The beloved Pearson family drama This Is Us will end after its sixth and final season, and news today from NBC executives Susan Rovner and Frances Berwick revealed that when the show returns for its last run, it will have a midseason, not a fall, premiere date.

Add to that, the fact that the show will wrap with an 18-episode order.  The execs shared to TV reporters and outlets including Deadline: “We know that saying goodbye to the Pearsons is going to be hard enough. So what we wanted to do is honor the fans and get them as close to an uninterrupted run as we could, which is only possible in midseason,” said Berwick.

Susan Rovner expressed: That by starting the story midseason, it will help make the send-off “a great event for the fans to enjoy.” She went on to say, “I think in Dan’s (Fogelman) hands, it’s going to be fantastic.”

For the past five season the cast has featured: Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown,Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley, Susan Kelechi Watson and Chris Sullivan, and there are still two more episodes of the current season, until the season finale on May 25th in a special time 10 p.m. ET/PT.

So, are you ready to say goodbye to the story of Randall, Kevin, and Kate and the rest of the family? Comment below.

DAYS Jackée Harry Joins Freeform Comedy Pilot ‘Everything’s Trash’ in Recurring Role

Jackée Harry is one busy actress in Hollywood!  On the heels of learning that Harry has signed on more full-time on Days of our Lives in her role as Paulina, comes this bit of casting news.

Harry will join the cast of the Freeform comedy pilot, Everything’s Trash along with another notable actor, George Wallace.  Both will have recurring roles in the show should it go to series.

In story, Everything’s Trash follows Phoebe (Phoebe Robinson), a 30-something podcast star navigating her messy life. When her younger brother Jayden emerges as a leading politician, she’s forced to grow up, so she relies on her friends and close-knit family to help her figure out adulthood, since she doesn’t seem to have a clue. The series is inspired by Robinson’s book, “Everything’s Trash But It’s Okay.”

According to Variety, “Harry will star as Zora, Phoebe and Jayden’s mother. She and her husband are mid-Western transplants, but they have made a home in NY . They love and support their children equally, but truth be known, Zora acts (and dresses) younger than she is and straddles the line between “I’m my daughter’s mother” and “I’m my daughter’s best friend.”  Meanwhile, Wallace will play the role of Abraham, Phoebe and Jayden’s father and husband to Zora.

So, looking forward to hopefully seeing Jackée on a half-comedy sitcom at night, and doing her role on Days of our Lives? Comment below.

GH’s Rebecca Herbst Thanks Fans for the Birthday Love

She is not often on social media, but when she does show up, it delights so many of her enduring fans. General Hospital’s Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth), who yesterday celebrated her birthday on May 12th, took to Twitter to share warm ‘thank you’s’ to a few fan factions who sent her some lovely gifts in honor and support of their favorite soap star.

Herbst expressed: “Yesterday was such a beautiful day! THANK YOU for all your sweet Birthday messages! #Friz & #Liason showered me with the most gorgeous flowers, cakes & goodies. And #Friz donated $2500 to #SmileTrain.  I felt very loved. I’m so grateful for each & every one of you. …XO”

Of course, the Friz fans loved Liz with Franco (Roger Howarth) and the Liason fans are those who love Liz with Jason (Steve Burton).

Now with Roger Howarth returning to the show – in what is at this juncture still a mystery as who he will play – will Rebecca be paired with Roger in story again, or not this time?  Do you think Liz might end up romantically with Finn (Michael Easton), or is there still a chance that down the line Liz and Jason could get back together, or could Liz meet someone new? Only time will tell!

For now, Herbst was thankful for the money donated to the Smile Train charity and all the wonderful gifts and messages that came her way.

So, what did you think of Becky’s thank you message?  Who are you hoping Liz winds up with romantically in the future?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.
