Well, 1st- not recruiting proper reporters / hosts who know about daytime TV but instead they had a casting call for millennial/hosts/reporters.
And that Furlan host saying about Daniel Polo that she didn’t want to go to jail because he was under age and then getting giggly to know he was of age..

then that Harlow woman says to Lawrence Saint-Victor- “What’s it like to be a black man on a soap opera these days?” and then called him “a beautiful chocolate man,”

and then to Ryan Paevey making doctor and policeman handcuff jokes, then Furlan said “We’re going to get you away from us before we rape you.”

they knew absolutely noting about the soaps, and made fools of themselves and the actors.. And the lesbian remark and all that cool stuff is barely the tip of the iceberg,,
Not to mention Kathy G’s comments, well outside of all that fun, the awards still stunk..
Many because of;

The Emmy committee being from CBS:
Angelica McDaniel CBS Vice President of daytime programming, Co-Chair
John C. Fisher, Producer The Young and the Restless, Co-Chair
what a load of CBS favoritism..

I guess it all was an experience and a very different type of an Emmy presentation..


That red carpet pre-show was so tasteless, disrespectful, and unfunny. YES, those hosts made FOOLS of themselves. Fire the goof who hired them. What a DISSERVICE to the daytime genre.


Eager to hear the program, Michael.

I did not do well on my predictions but see some fan favorites received trophies, several overdue for such recognition.

Will comment now: Clear the deck with anyone behind that horrid mess of a red carpet program. It was like watching a train wreck. With so many competent entertainment reporters and well-spoken industry insiders, how could we have such a mess of a pre-show program. It only served to strengthen stereotypes that daytime is a lesser daypart and demeaned the talented storytellers and actors who work so hard to give us this special brand of entertainment.

Please CBS, NBC, and ABC, see the value of daytime to your enterprises and give the genre and the awards that recognize its zeniths some respect and love.


CONGRATULATIONS to the (soap) winners! Love y’all & very deserving!
Last year I was disappointed in the poor production that HLN did of the Emmys. Also last year when GMA announced things, they were very disrespectful to our soaps. I can’t say it’s gotten any better. This year it seemed that whomever was in control of the red carpet didn’t care to have our long-time loyal soap reporters whom we all know and love. Instead stocked it with people we don’t know, nor know our (soap) people and shows, and were obviously disrespectful. And also now, regular entertainment TV shows no longer carry the results, they have announcers, not reporters, and they sure do find time to talk about themselves (A LOT).
Missing the old days.


I am just so thrilled that Eileen Davidson won as Best Lead Actress! It was a very well-deserved win! I’ve often wondered why Lauren Koslow has not been nominated. I absolutely love her as Kate Roberts. She is a stunning woman and is very talented.

Why is (E)xiting (D)AYS to be a YawneR?


I was EMBARRASSED watching the pre-show red carpet. Horrible, CLASSLESS “hostesses” . Absolutely wretched. I shut the volume off after hoping it would get better but it did not. Whoever hired those boobs should be FIRED. Disastrous. I was SHOCKED at the lack of professionalism and the distasteful, CLASSLESS display those women (certainly not ladies) put on. That red carpet was so DISRESPECTFUL to the wonderful daytime genre and actors. If they were going for funny they missed the mark by 10,000 miles. Fire the goof who put that s-storm together.

From what ive been reading im glad i didnt watch…its bad enough that some people think the worse of soaps as it is and now this tacky classless hosts made it even worse!


jimh…please don’t let the bad decision of some exec keep you from watching the Daytime Emmy s. Look it up on line and FAST FORWARD thru the terrible red carpet interviews and to the show. It is really nice watching our soap stars receive their awards etc. Honestly, for the first time I felt that the show’s production SUNK to the lower level that some people place it at.

But, I highly recommend you watch it, as a fan, for the value of seeing our favorites win. NEEDS production improvements which won’t come with out the RESPECT they DESERVE!

DAYS Preview – Week of July 16, 2018

This week on Days of our Lives, hell hath no fury like a Gabi (Camila Banus) scorned!  Now out for revenge after receiving devastating news that she can never conceive another child, Gabi has switched the DNA results to make it appear to Abigail (Marci Miller) that Stefan (Tyler Christopher) is the father of her unborn baby.

How far will Gabi continue to sink to carry out this lie and to give payback to Stefan and Abigail as her alter “Gabby” for sending her to prison for a crime she did not commit? Is her former lover, Chad (Billy Flynn) collateral damage in all of this?

Meanwhile, Brady (Eric Martsolf) prepares to say goodbye to his son, Tate after losing custody of his son when the judge rules in Theresa’s (Jen Lilley) favor, but will fate intervene, allowing Brady to keep his son after all?

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Ben Fights Off His “Killer” Instincts As Rob Scott Wilson Delivers Power Performance Of The Week

In Days of our Lives’ version of Beauty and the Beast, in this case Ciara (Victoria Konefal) is the ‘beauty’ and Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) is the ‘beast’ she is to tame, last Thursday and Friday’s episodes illustrated to us where this duo could be heading in the future.

But first things, first.  The situation took a horrifying turn for Ciara, and for Ben, when he runs into the cabin beside himself!  He informs Ciara he went to the pharmacy to get his prescription but the police have swarmed the place.  Getting more and more agitated, Ben tells Ciara, he blames her, and her mother, Hope (Kristian Alfonso) for putting an APB out on him!  Ciara says she didn’t say anything to her mother.   But, Ben is losing his grip on reality fast and he desperately needs his meds.  He’s on edge and begs her not to call Hope, as he can’t go back to the sanitarium.  Ciara tries to calm Ben down and insists that she won’t to that to him, but suddenly, he becomes more unglued and stomps on her cell phone!


Next, Ben is hallucinating thinking he has handcuffed Ciara to the bed – the same thing he did to Abigail!   He sees Ciara in the handcuffs.  Ciara tells him she is not in them and to look at her hands.  All of a sudden, as she tells him she is on his side, and will help him through this, he calls her, “a lying little whore, just like the rest of them.”  Ben thinks she believes he is a ‘killer’ like everyone else, because she has now grabbed a knife to defend herself.

Ben tells Ciara that maybe he hasn’t changed at all, he is a serial killer, and now that he is off his meds he sees things very clearly. Ciara tries to calm him down and assure him everything will be OK.  When he closes his eyes and then opens them, he still sees that Ciara is handcuffed to the bed.  Crawling more and more out of his skin, Ben begins to hear his father, Clyde saying, “She’s lying to you, boy …trying to fool you … the same as that slut Abigail.”

Now, Ben hallucinates that Clyde (James Read) is in the cabin, egging him on to strangle Ciara, red necktie and all!  As Ben fights off his father’s attempts to make him do heinous things to Ciara, (he even hears Clyde telling him to burn down the cabin), yielding a knife Ciara calms Ben down saying Clyde is not really there.  Ben admits he doesn’t know what’s real anymore.  Ciara puts her knife down and offers her hand to hold on to. Ben takes Ciara’s hand and sits down as Clyde’s image fades away.  Ciara begs Ben to run to the pharmacy to get his meds. She promises she will not use her phone.  Ben exits.

However on Cliffhanger Friday, Ciara is engulfed in flames in the cabin, with no Ben to be found, and Rafe (Galen Gering) getting a signal from her cell directing him and Hope on a collision course with Ciara and Ben.

Throughout the two episodes of Ben’s battle with his sanity and how he is haunted by what he has done to others, and vacillating. between reality and delusional, Rob Scott Wilson illustrated once again, that given the material that his performances of Ben are mesmerizing. Wilson’s scenes make you stop whatever you may be doing, and take notice.  That is why Rob is our pick for the “Power Performance of the Week.”

So, what did you think of Rob’s performance?  What did you think of what happened in the cabin between Ben and Ciara? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
