    Hopefully this casting move signifies that the end of the “Phoebeth” story is coming, because it’s been dragged out for far too long.

    And once B&B stops writing story for Vincent, like they eventually do for all their newest powerhouse actors, GH should snatch him up and bring David Hayward to Port Charles. Now that Hayden is back in town and will no doubt cause drama for Finn and Anna, the writers at GH should capitalize on it and bring Anna’s ex to town. The hospital needs new doctors anyway, and how great would it be to see David and Obrecht conspiring together?

      Glad someone agrees with me. I said those exact words months ago, when he was killed off on DOOL.

      After the Project Orifice debacle, there’s not a snowball’s chance in my front yard that David Hayward could ever be taken seriously as a doctor at GH. I don’t watch B&B but I thought Vincent had a good run as the long lost Kiriakis brother on Days (who ironically are doing their own ripoff of the Project Orifice mess lately, which thankfully he was not involved in)

    Damn! Vincent deserves better than B&B…the worst soap on air!
    I made the mistake of sticking with B&B when Thorsten Kaye came on board, and he’s no longer a favorite.
    I won’t make that mistake again with VI! I want to continue liking him.

      Better there than at GH…I’m so tired of recycled ABC soap actors ending up in Port Charles!

    I CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS. Finally, this secret is about to blow. I have a theory that Flo is going to get pregnant and this man will be her Dr. Then it will come to light that this is her first pregnancy, and she DID NOT birth Phoebe/Beth. Then it all starts to unravel. I hope he sticks around. He would SIZZLE with Katherine Kelly Lang. Bridge is prolly going to go bust after this secret is blown. I am sure Bell is going to give Thomas a soap brain tumor to excuse his behavior but there is NO WAY Brooke will forgive Thomas for not telling that he knew. Taylor will force Ridge’s hand to side with Thomas and Brooke and Ridge will breakup(for now). Enter Jordan. Or he can be paired with Katie, Quinn or Donna! I am excited!

    Wow! An all-time favorite in my household! Looking forward to this!

    Be still my heart! He’s my favorite soap hunk of all time. I adore him, and he’s an amazing actor. I hope that B&B doesn’t waste him the way Y&R did. If he doesn’t have a permanent leading role on B&B (unlikely), then I do wish that Y&R or GH would hire him. He could easily play a new character on Y&R. What a mess they made of his former character, David Chow. He had three different names, and he is definitely NOT Chinese looking!

    OH MY WORD!!! Looking at his gorgeous face reminds me how much I miss GL! 🙁

    Hopefully we’ll wrap up this storyline soon. Please and thank you.

      Oh he was good on Gl, and Santa Barbara, and AMC, and DOOL, Y&R, not so much, as Dr.Helen Ruth said, he was totally wasted there.

    Glad for Vincent Irrizarry and I truly hope that Brad Bell gives him a story worthy of his talents = DON’T WASTE HIM!

    What’s the point of B&B hiring veteran, talented soap actors like Irizazzy if it never gives them a decent plot and never bothers to use them for more than 5 episodes?

    I have always like Irizazzy but not even a (fleeting) appearance by him on B&B could entice me to watch that show. Frustrated by the continuous poor quality of the writing and the rehashing of love triangles, I gave up on B&B over a decade ago. Basically, when Darlene Conley (Sally Spectra) died, I walked.

      I survived a little longer, viewing at least occasionally until Stephanie died and Susan Flannery left, but without Stephanie’s somewhat restraining presence on the nonsense going on around her, I’ve largely found the show unwatchable, and nothing I’ve seen on here has led me to regret abandoning it. It just seems like plot-driven nonsense on top of plot-driven nonsense. I like some of the actors a lot, notably Heather Tom, but given what they’re being asked to play on screen, it’s no real sacrifice not to watch them have to fight their way through trying to make it believable. (Because it isn’t.) Still, I wish Mr. Irizarry the best. Maybe he’ll triumph over the usual pattern on B&B and actually get some work out of this gig.

    I might just go back to watching b&b just to see him…wish he joined gh instead!

REPORT: Days of our Lives Targets September Production Restart

Looks like Salem and Days of our Lives will be back in full-swing come September, if the target date holds true as revealed today by Deadline.

According to their sources, Corday Productions, who produces the long-running NBC daytime drama, sent out an email to cast members on Thursday notifying them of their intent to resume production come September 1st.

However for this article; reps for NBC, Corday and Sony Pictures TV declined to comment.

Days of our Lives has had enough shows banked through early October of this year, so was not pressed to get back into production amidst the coronavirus pandemic as much as CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful (which went back into production a week and half ago), and The Young and the Restless and General Hospital who are targeting a mid-July restart.

All three of the shows, except for DAYS ran out of original episodes to air, back at the end of April of this year.

So, excited to hear that their may be plans ahead come fall for DAYS to come to back and tape new episodes? Comment below.

B&B’s Supervising Producer, Casey Kasprzyk Shares: “Just Finished Viewing Our First Produced Episode Since Starting Production Back Up!”

In a tweet late on Thursday, the supervising producer of The Bold and the Beautiful, Casey Kasprzyk, shared his enthusiasm at completing the first major hurdle for the soap going back into production during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Showing a viewing copy on disc of the first new episode produced for B&B in months, Casey said: “Just finished viewing our first produced episode since starting production back up! So proud of Team Bold & Beautiful. Great shows airing soon”

The disc had airshow number #8321 on it, and a question mark as to when it will make it to air.

The fact that The Bold and the Beautiful is the first daytime drama to get one new episode completed is a step forward amidst the spike in COVID-19 cases in Los Angeles County and the state of California.

Now soap fans will have to wait and see if General Hospital and The Young and the Restless begin their productions in the middle of July; as last projected by both series, or if there will be further delays due to the ongoing crisis for the safety of everyone involved at the shows.

So, excited to learn Casey’s news that there is a new episode of B&B on the horizon for viewers to see? Comment below.

‘Strahan, Sara and Keke’ Canceled by ABC; Show Aired In Timeslot That Once Housed ‘All My Children’

No matter a network tries to do, replacing All My Children, which ran for 41 years on ABC has remained as everyone that follows the world of daytime drama knows, problematic.  Now come word via Page Six that Strahan, Sara and Keke has been canceled.

The show hosted by Michael Strahan, Sara Haines and Keke Palmer if you recall, replaced the foodie show, The Chew which ran for seven seasons and was the first show to air in the timeslot that belonged for over four decades to All My Children. 

Back in March of this year, Strahan, Sara and Keke took a break to make way for ABC’s News  Pandemic: What You Need to Know, a daily coronavirus report anchored by Amy Robach, Dr. Jen Ashton and sometimes TJ Holmes.

However, because the show did well in that two-week experimental run it morphed into GMA 3: What You Need to Know.  The new version of the show also talked about hot topics in the current news cycle, as well.

ABC’s Catherine McKenzie began producing the “GMA3” show four months ago and the network officially announced her as Executive Producer of the program on Thursday.

While ABC has yet to officially announce Strahan, Sara and Keke is over, a spokesperson told Page Six: “We’re proud of our teams at ‘SSK’ and ‘GMA3’ and how quickly they transitioned to producing a daily show to give people the news and information they need during an unprecedented pandemic, and conversations continue about how the show will evolve in the months ahead.”

It appears that Strahan, Sara and Keke won’t be returning; the future as many of their staff have transitioned over to ‘GMA 3’ with producers from ABC News Live, (the streaming division), helmed by McKenzie.

As for the futures of Strahan, Haines and Palmer; Strahan will continues to host Good Morning America, and they are all actively under contract with the network.

So, what do you think of  ‘Strahan, Sara and Kek’e being replaced by ‘GMA 3: What You  Need to Know’?  How long do you think that show will last in the timeslot once taken up by residents of Pine Valley? Comment below.
