‘This Is Us’ Creator Dan Fogelman Admits He’s Already Shot Pieces of The Series’ Final Scene & Teases Season 3

At the “For Your Emmy Consideration” Panel held at the Ace Hotel in Los Angeles on Tuesday, This Is Us creator Dan Fogelman brought to light some intriguing twists about the show’s upcoming third season, and a tidbit about the entire construct of the show.   Fogelman said, “We’re pretty far along, our writers are kind of to the end. We have a path for each season of the show. We’ve always had a plan. I don’t think the show will ever – despite any success it may or may not have – will overstay its welcome, and we have a story to tell.”  Then, he added, “I’ve actually already shot pieces of the final scene in the series.”

As to the who is “her” mystery that was brought to light in the season two finale flash forward, which features Randall (Sterling K. Brown) and the adult version of Tess (Iantha Richardson), he coyly said, “I think people are going to be surprised with how we use that timeline.”

And, as for Toby’s (Chris Sullivan) deep depression, seen in the season two finale flash forward, and the backstory of Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson), Fogelman teased they both get showcase episodes, which should be very interesting since we’ve seen showcase episodes before, for the Big Three, played by Justin Hartley (Kevin), Chrissy Metz (Kate), and Sterling K. Brown.

Who she is or how it plays out, I haven’t a clue.
I do know, whoever, it will be great.
The writers are phenomenal and I know it will be awesome..

to mention;
the cast is pure harmony! none better.
They fit with each other like puzzle pieces creating one picture..

Excited for the coming season !

I had forgotten the who is “her” teaser, unlike the who shot JR cliffhanger from Dallas(the episode that invented the cliffhanger/teasers) which stayed the hot water cooler topic all summer long so by September everyone was glue to the show on reveal night to find out the answer– So who ever “her” is it wasn’t enough to make me feel impatient for the show’s return to find out, in fact I still can’t picture it my head- LOL
As for them having a series ending in mind already–good for them, some shows make it up as they go (remember Lost)— a clear destination will prevent a show from “jumping the shark”

“This Is Us” defies the usual network Primetime gunk. Well-written & well-acted, which make it return TV. Most network dramas play out quickly. This one definitely has legs.

Drew Barrymore Daytime Talk Show Pilot In The Works

This fall, new talkers from Tamron Hall and Kelly Clarkson will be part of the daytime television landscape, and now comes word that Drew Barrymore may enter the space with a new talk show for her that is in development with the pilot being shot this coming week.

According to Variety, details of the proposed one-hour show are not all clear, but Drew is said to be one of the executive producers of the pilot episode and yet there is no showrunner attached to the project at this time.  Barrymore’s company, Flower Films is likely attached as well.

Back in 2016, Barrymore had a deal in place with Warner Brothers Telepictures for a talk show, but that never came to pass, in part to a lukewarm response from TV station groups at that time.

However now the new regime at CBS’ syndication arm is said to have ‘high hopes’ for the show and they feel that Drew will appeal and do well in the daytime arena.

Barrymore recently appeared in her third season of  Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet in its 30 episode season. Through her Flower Films she was been an executive producer on unscripted series including TLC’s Rattled and VH1’s Tough Love.

So, would you be interested. or intrigued to see what kind of show Drew Barrymore has to offer in daytime? Think she would be a good host? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

The Bold and the Beautiful Ratings Winner With Phoebe is Beth Reveal

Great news for The Bold and the Beautiful and their long-awaited payoff: that the little girl being raised by Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) as “Phoebe” is really Liam (Scott Clifton) and Hope’s (Annika Noelle) daughter, Beth, who they believed had died in the long and twisty baby switch storyline.

B&B was the highest rated daytime television show in the key 25-54 womens demo and the first time in the 32-year-old history of the CBS sudser that it has been atop of that demo. That is not only among the network soaps but all series genres in daytime for the week of August 5-9 –  quite the feat.

During the ratings week, Liam figured out that Phoebe was Beth, and eventually after Thomas’ (Matt Atkinson) manipulations told Hope the truth.

All this goes to show that as frustrated as viewers get wanting the truth to come out in a story they follow; when it finally does, they are along for the ride. Something B&B executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell does exceptionally well with big umbrella storylines that hold major ramifications for many on the canvas.

Congrats to Brad and the B&B team!

So, what do you think of BOLD’s performance in the ratings for the big week in story? Comment below

Kelly Monaco Addresses Billy Miller’s Departure From GH

In a post via her twitter account, General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco (Sam) shared her heartbreak on her longtime scene partner, Billy Miller’s (Drew) exit from the ABC daytime drama series.  This was the first time that Kelly addressed the situation in a public forum.

Miller came on to GH back in 2014 as Jason Morgan, following the departure of Steve Burton, who then wound up on Y&R.  When Burton returned to GH in 2017, Miller’s part was then turned-in-to, Jason’s twin, Drew Cain.

Through a great portion of Miller’s run on GH, he was paired romantically on -screen with Monaco and the duo were, and have remained, one of the most popular duo’s in daytime.

Monaco expressed the following in her message: “I feel like I have to address this situation. #BillyMiller ‘s untimely departure from #gh. Honestly, I can not come up with the words to describe how I feel about this decision… a decision that may not be what our audience thinks to be true. I’m heartbroken… more to come.”
