VARIETY Takes A Look at HLN's Last Minute Save Of Emmy Telecast & If There Is A Future For The Award Show Broadcast!

In an interesting piece out on the eve of the 39th Annual Daytime Emmys broadcast from Variety, the publication and its online platform considers the question, “Are the Daytime Emmys going the way of the soaps they honor?”

In the feature entitled Show bubbly or washout?, Variety speaks to several daytime journalists including On-Air On-Soaps Michael Fairman, We Love Soaps, Roger Newcomb and Daytime Confidential’s Jamey Giddens, plus Days of our Lives executive, Greg Meng to try to get the answers and the sentiments going into to tomorrow’s first-ever broadcast by cable network HLN, which at the last minute was able to save the show and bring it to its loyal fan base and hopes to expand it.

Michael Fairman commented, “I’m hoping against hope that HLN will pull it out.  With the show literally being put together in three weeks, maybe they’ll just get out the awards with less fluff, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. It’s better that watching singing and dancing numbers in the middle of the show that have no relevance to what the show is about.”    Of course, Fairman was reflecting on last year’s Daytime Emmy telecast live from Las Vegas which left a bad taste in the industry’s mouth.  And now,  so many are looking forward to hopefully seeing the telecast honoring the talented performers and creatives in daytime sprinkled in with the glitz and glamor of Beverly Hills, and with the attention focused on giving out the awards.

Do you think tomorrow night’s Emmys will be a victory for HLN and NATAS? Or, do you think this could be the final broadcast of the Daytime Emmy ceremonies?  Let us know your thoughts!

I don’t really know until I see it, I know that I watch hln a lot at night and they are doing everything to get people to watch tomorrow night they have been advertizing for a few weeks now so I think their hearts are in it ,as long as they don’t come close to that 3 ring circus in las vegas we should be ok I like that they are going to do the soap awards first, Because I could care less who wins best talk show, Game shows are fine. It will be very interesting to see how… Read more »

Well by the way HLN has been getting the fans involved on Twitter and Facebook, I think they will pull of a good show. Wish they would buy AMC & OLTL..

I hope it gets great ratings, especially for the AMC and OLTL memorials. If we all watch it that will help. Guess we’ll see how the ratings tomorrow night are, that will tell it all.

Wonder if it’s available to watch online

I think that they are in trouble….and it’s all because of the lack of consideration that the awards seem to put forth when selecting their nominees. I know I am not the only person that believes that OLTL was more than robbed when not chosen for the Outstanding Daytime Drama Series category….it makes no sense. Not only being left out of the Drama Series category, but there was a long list of actors that were ignored as well. And this has happen year after year….which I think has poisoned the waters for many of the soap watching community. I know… Read more »

It’s not just your opinion–others feel similarly. Selecting Days over OLTL, ignoring St John, Lozano, DePaiva, and others year after year kind of undermines the credibility and purpose of awarding awards. It became too predictable who would be nominated and who would be ignored, regardless of achievement.

Without soaps and their stars who cares about Daytime Emmys for talk or reality? No one, except the potential nominees and winners who might add it to their résumé. The networks have ruined the Daytime Emmys like they have destroyed daytime because no one cares about talk or reality garbage.

Your right david, what I would like to know is why, One life to live should be up for best drama series and best writing even tv guide called it to win, something had to happen that all my children was picked, it doesn’t make sense that this happens year after year I just don’t get it. One life to live was the best soap opera no other soap will even come close to being as good as it was.

I know I am going to catch heck for this but I am worn out every year Tony Geary is nominated and I know he is going to win tonight and I am sorry but I am worn out I guess I would like for them to go the sentimental vote and go withi Woods & Williams for a tie.

I am certanly looking forward to watching it, and by all accounts, between HLN’s promoting of it, as well as the tidbits they have already told us about, it seems as though it will be focused on “daytime television” (meaning the soaps/shows and the people who work so hard day after day, all year long, in front of and behind the cameras), to bring these programs we love to life. There is no doubt in my mind that it will be much better than last year’s debacle, and could very well, bring more viewers to our soaps. I hope they… Read more »

Unfortunately, it could be both–a victory for HLN and NATAS and the final broadcast, if executives continue to ignore viewer preference for entertainment over reality. Talk is cheap and reality is ugly, and most people want neither in the afternoons.

I know I won’t watch if the soaps are gone, who will? The daytime Emmys were for the soaps, Its to bad that no one understands that and they continue to slowly take away great television viewing. I know once the soaps are gone I will never tune into abc, cbs, or nbc. There is no reason to. Who really cares what talk show will win? Are we now going to have a emmy for the show that puts out the best recipe? How tacky is that? there’s not one of them that I watch its all boring same material… Read more »

HLN kicks ass!! They are amazing for being the one network with the foresight to televise this great event. I’m thinking that they could all gather around a big table full of sack lunches and a boombox and it would STILL be better than watching a return to Las Vegas!! THANK YOU, HLN!! Bar’s pretty low, folks; only place to go is up! 🙂

I’m at the point, especially after last nights show, I don’t care anymore! The show was Ridiculous, horrible..and IMO a SHAM. OLTL, was CUT out of everything. BEST SHOW EVER WRITTEN, ACTED, EVER. TREVOR ST JOHN, Ericka Slezak, Bob woods, Micael Easton Roger Howarth, Kassie, TUC WATKINS THE BEST! What about Robin Strasser,?? It’s all Bulls**T. Period. it’s all a bunch of controlled , predictable, nonsense. What was done to OLTL was crimminal…what about Illene Kristen ?? “Roxy”..are they kidding?? this was some of the most funniest and best Drama Ever written for ANY TV program…and those who were not… Read more »

All My Children and ‘The Bay’ Star Eric Nelsen in the Cast of ‘Yellowstone’ Prequel ‘1883’

On Thursday, the full cast was announced for the highly-anticipated Yellowstone prequel that will bow on Paramount+ beginning on December 19th.

The Taylor Sheridan drama tells the tale of the Dutton family as they embark on a journey west through the Great Plains toward the last bastion of untamed America. It is a stark retelling of Western expansion, and an intense study of one family fleeing poverty to seek a better future in America’s promised land — Montana.

According to Deadline, in the cast is none other than The Bay’s Daytime Emmy-winner, Eric Nelsen (Daniel Garrett), who was also part of the cast of Prospect Park’s reboot of All My Children as AJ Chandler.

In 1883, look for Nelsen to take on the role of Ennis, a young, handsome cowboy who agrees to help escort a group of inexperienced men, women and children north to find a home.

The series also stars: Billy Bob Thornton, Faith Hill, Gratiela Brancusi, Sam Elliott, Stephanie Nur, and Tim McGraw to name but a few.

So, will you be checking out Eric in 1883? Comment below.

Mark Consuelos Exits ‘Riverdale’

Last night, All My Children alum, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo Santos) made what appears to be his final appearance for now on CW’s soapy drama, Riverdale.

Consuelos departed Riverdale as a series regular on the season 5 finale, after coming on to the show in its second season in the role of villain, Hiram Lodge.

Riverdale executive producer and showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, shared with Deadline a statement on Consuelos contribution and run on the series: “From the moment Mark joined us, he was up for literally anything, a hundred percent committed to making Archie’s life a living hell. And what’s funny is, Mark couldn’t be more different from Hiram. A classy pro and the sweetest guy, always looking out for everyone. We wish Mark the best and hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Hiram Lodge.

Consuelos offered up these sentiments in a statement on his Riverdale exit: “First and foremost, I would like to thank Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for this incredible opportunity. Never before has playing a character that was so bad, felt so good. Huge thanks to the Riverdale fandom, to the brilliant crew and amazing cast, whom I consider dear friends and family.”

So, will you miss seeing Mark on Riverdale? Elsewhere, still no word on the “Pine Valley” reboot in which Mark and wife, Kelly Ripa, are two of the executive producers of that many All My Children fans were hoping would come to fruition. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
