On Friday’s episode of CBS’ The Talk, the afternoon series welcomed Y&R stars, Jess Walton (Jill), Sharon Case (Sharon) and Joshua Morrow (Nick) to discuss the soaps streak of 30 years at #1, plus what fans can expect next in the J.T. murder storyline.

Jess Walton recalled when the show first became number one, and why it did, relating:  “I remember thinking how good our show was at putting the storylines together, combining them, so that all the climaxes … the cliffhangers …  it wasn’t just one climax and one storyline, it affected every storyline.”

As to why over the years she thinks Y&R has remained at the top, Jess explained it is the fans who are paramount to the success of the show:  “You know what it is? It’s the fans. The fans, I mean, we are like your family, and you feel like our family. And that’s what soap opera is based on, the multi-generational family.”

When the ladies of The Talk asked Sharon Case if she screen-tested with Joshua Morrow over 25 years ago to land the role of Sharon, she revealed: “Joshua started working there a few months before me, so when I came along and I screen-tested, Joshua did the screen tests for all the girls trying out that day.”

Morrow added, “We had a couple of ‘Sharons’ before the real Sharon came along, and I knew right away.  I was screen-testing with these others …  and Sharon just nailed it.  I was like, ‘That’s the one.'”  In additin, the duo discuss “Shick” and Phick” fandom, and Joshua talks about working with soap icon, Eric Braeden (Victor), as his on-screen dad.

Later, Sharon dishes on “J.T.’s” murder plot: “These women are keeping a secret. They really don’t like each other, so they’ve had to trust each other a lot this last year, keeping the secret. But, there’s chinks in the armor that are coming; they’re starting to break.”

Watch two clips from the aforementioned segment featuring Walton, Case, and Morrow on The Talk below.  Then, let us know, why you think Y&R has remained number one for 30 years? If you are team #Shick or #Phick?  What you think will happen next in the J.T. murder storyline?  Share your thoughts to these questions via the comment section below.

    “Y & R” is a dumpster fire under Mal Young – cannot wait until Josh Griffith’s material starts airing and Mal Young becomes a distant memory!!!

    Sharon Case is stunning
    Sharon Case is captivating
    Sharon Case is delivering way MORE than ‘she should know’

    she’s across the board appeal for what works in said genre

    Michael Muhney was on fire

    I would have blamed ‘the production’ value hottest commodity left

    for the movement of one Whole show… i’d take Michael Muhney

    Sharons element : already ticked AND persevered; with Adam whole

    I could not watch ONE second of the clip because of Osborne and Underwood. TWO of the most annoying things on TV!

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.

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.

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.
