    I have several. Hopefully, at least one of them will merit being asked:

    1. As a long-time viewer, I was really surprised with the storyline revealing that Kay and Jill were related. The subsequent scenes where the two worked to establish a mother/daughter relationship seemed inane to me given their bitter history. Even though the writers have “undone” their biological connection, the characters do not seem to have recovered. Jill and Kay were always at their best when they were scheming against each another, a situation that logically grew from their early years on the show. The interaction between the characters since the mother/daughter storyline is odd and the writers don’t seem to really know what to do with them. While I religiously followed this duo for decades, I have not understood the dynamics between Kay and Jill for the past few years.
    A couple of years ago, I saw a group interview with several cast members, including you and Jess Walton. Walton remarked that she really liked the idea of the mother/daughter storyline when she learned about it. You indicated that you were not in favor of it.
    Now that this plot has ended and the characters have evolved, I was wondering if your thoughts about this storyline have changed? What is your impression of the current relationship between Jill and Kay?

    2. For the first two decades of the show, we always saw Kay Chancellor sitting at her home and dealing with the troubles in her life. We rarely saw a Chancellor Industries executive and months (in some cases, years) would pass before the company even remotely was involved in a storyline. It was pretty clear to me that Kay’s second husband, Phillip Chancellor, built the business and that Kay was the unstable socialite wife who never showed any serious interest in the company (other than as a source of income). In the past decade, we have suddenly seen Kay take an active role in running Chancellor Industries. She appears to be an astute, experienced businesswoman, making serious financial decisions about the company. This often has puzzled me. Where exactly did Kay get all of newly found business knowledge? The show has never addressed her sudden insight and interest into the workings of Chancellor Industries when Kay spent 20 years barely mentioning it. As far as I can tell, we didn’t even get a minor storyline where Victor coached Kay on how to be a CEO of a large operation. I’ve waited for several years for a plot where Chancellor Industries is on the verge of bankruptcy due to unwise decisions by the inexperienced Kay. I was wondering if Miss Cooper had any thoughts on this?

    3. Who was your favorite romantic partner for Kay? Who was your least favorite romantic partner for her?

    4. What was your favorite storyline from the show and why? What was your least favorite storyline and why?

    I would like to know what Jeanne has to say about the recent ousting of Maria Bell, and what she thinks about the changing of the guard at Y&R behind the scenes.

    Also, does she get a say in what Mrs. Chancellor wears, or is that what the costumers decide? She is always so perfectly put together!! 🙂

    One more…. how much fun was it doing that cake fight with Jess Walton a few years ago? That was awesome television….. really all of the fights she’s been in with Jess are so memorable. Was it difficult doing all of that rolling around? 🙂

The Young and the Restless Pushes Back Production Restart Date Due To COVID-19 Spike

As the coronavirus pandemic is spiking again in LA County and California, CBS’ Daytime-Emmy winning The Young and the Restless has now postponed their previously announced goal of a production restart of July 6th to now eyeing July 13th as their new start date.  Deadline first broke the news.

But all of this could change, given that California Governor Gavin Newsom and LA County health officials have come forward that the spike of COVID-19 cases, test positivity and hospitalization rates in California have given the Governor serious concerns, so much so that now he is tightening restrictions again for the state to include: once again shutting down indoor dining, closing all bars, indoor movie theatres, as well as all beaches being closed for the 4th of July holiday.

Just last Friday, Y&R picked up the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series at the 47th annual Daytime Emmy Awards. 

General Hospital is still eyeing a mid-July production restart, The Bold and the Beautiful had gone back into production and Days of our Lives still has episodes banked into the fall, and at this time have not yet announced plans to restart production.

So, do you think Y&R can safely go back into production in a few weeks given the COVID-19 uptick in new cases? Comment below,

GH’s Michael Easton Posts “Ask Me Anything” Part Two

Over the coronavirus pandemic General Hospital star Michael Easton (Hamilton Finn) has been answering several fans questions posted to him in a series of posts on his official Facebook page. 

This week, Easton posted part two of his “Ask Me Anything”, and the fan favorite said he he will do his best to get through everyone’s questions and thanked those who made donations to America Health Care Workers and food banks during COVID-19.

In part two; questions ranged from: his connection with his on-screen brother played by Josh Swickard, if he would ever consider a return to Days of our Lives to reprise the role of Tanner Scofield (his first soap role), what is his favorite part of playing Hamilton Finn, and the casting of his on-screen daughter Violet played by Jophielle Love and more.

One question posed to Easton revolved around the just completed Daytime Emmys, when he was asked: “How many times have you submitted yourself for the Emmys? Some actors seem to put a real emphasis on being nominated but you don’t seem to care that much?”

Michael responded: “I’m pacing myself. I’ve maybe submitted three or four times in twenty years. It’s a lovely honor but not something I focus on. Everyday I try to give the best, most truthful performance I can and as I long as I can do that…I live with myself.”

Make sure to “Like” Michael’s official Facebook page, if you have not already to see more of his “Ask Me Anything’s”

So, what are your hopes for Hamilton Finn when Michael returns to taping new episodes of General Hospital in the future?

Friday night was a good night for daytime!  With its first foray back on to network television since 2011, the Daytime Emmy kudofest, while for the first time held this year virtually, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, scored very well in its timeslot.

The CBS broadcast averaged 3.1 million total viewers and a 0.3 demo rating.  That is way up from the last time viewers saw the award show on TV when it was on cable network POP TV back in 2015 with just over 900,000 viewers for its initial broadcast.

According to TV Insider report: The first hour of the Emmys garnered 3.3 million viewers to top the hour by edging out a rerun on ABC”s Shark Tank, and then slipped to second place for the second hour with 2.8 million viewers.

These were strong numbers for Friday night, and hopefully CBS and the other major networks will now continue this, and serve up the Daytime Emmy Awards moving forward.

The ladies of CBS’s The Talk hosted the event; each virtually from their homes, in an event filled with at-home acceptance speeches and presenters, and clip packages. The show was produced by NATAS and Associated Television International
