It’s weird, it’s not like I ever met Kristoff St. John, but I still can’t believe he’s gone. I remember the first day Neil walked into the doors of Newman Enterprise as a fresh faced, recent MBA graduate from Harvard. Dru fell in love with him at first sight and asked her Aunt Mamie (the Abbot cook and housekeeper) to teach her how to make crab cakes in order to win his heart through his stomach. Then she took ballet lessons in order to woe him further. Drucilla put out all the stops in order to win Neil over.
He was eternally handsome and youthful but life’s experiences made him all the wiser.
I will keep looking for him on Y&R–hard to believe Neil Winters is really gone.

Just reading this and I’m crying. Still so hard to believe he’s gone. He will forever be missed and I’m beyond happy that Shemar Moore is returning as Malcolm. No replacement EVER worked in his place so it’s fitting he’s returning for this. RIP Kristoff!

I think it will be very tastefully “acted”, of course realizing that those tears, most likely will be real mourning tears for their friend in real life. Definitely will be watching all episodes.

Networks To Preempt Daytime Programming For Donald Trump Impeachment Hearing Coverage

Just as your favorite soaps are kicking into high gear for November sweeps next week, comes the news that due to the House public impeachment hearings on President Donald Trump, daytime programming will endure several pre-mptions starting with the first two on Wednesday November 13th and Friday, November 15th.

CBS was the first network to announce their plans for their extensive coverage, and according to the Washington Post all other networks have followed suit.  By this move by the networks it gives the hearing some extra weight and exposure to the American voters and viewing audience.

So far, leading network coverage for CBS will be reportedly anchored by Norah O’Donnell and for ABC George Stephanopoulos.

On Wednesday, the hearings begin at 10am EST, the second is scheduled for Friday beginning at 11am EST.

William Taylor, the U.S. diplomat in the Ukraine, is scheduled to testify Wednesday and on Friday Marie Yovanovitch, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, is scheduled to testify.

The networks are expecting big numbers for covering the hearings, as they have in the past for impeachment proceedings and hearings.

No word yet how the soaps plan for you to see the episodes that don’t air at their regularly scheduled times, or if it shifts your soap viewing schedule by several days.
