The Bold and the Beautiful will welcome Let’s Make A Deal host Wayne Brady for a clever crossover on the Wednesday January 18th episode of the series.

In story, Pam, (played by Alley Mills) enlists Nick, (played by Jack Wagner) to join her as a contestant on the CBS game show.  And in doing so, she wants to get the attention of host, Wayne Brady, and so the duo don some interesting costumes! Then on the Friday January 20th episode of Let’s Make A Deal, Jack Wagner appears as himself.

Wayne Brady told CBS Soaps In Depth, “It was a great gift for us  having Jack Wagner appear as part of a prize for that day’s show. And a nice thing for B&B as well, to have both shows do this type of crossover.  Jack was great. The man is a stage vet, so there’s never any worry about him. He went out and did it like a pro.”

Make sure to catch both B&B and Let’s Make A Deal to see how this all plays out!

What’s with all these soap killers trying to make up with soap opera fans?

First, you’ve got Gordon Elliott asking All My Children fans to give The Chew a chance. After we’ve got The Talk inviting Michael E Knight and other AMC stars on their pathetic View-wannabe retarded show. Last month, we’ve got Dr.Jennifer Ashton blabbering about how nothing will ever replace One Life to Live. And now we’ve got this Guiding Light killer making an appareance on The Bold and The Beautiful.

It looks to me that these bigwig network executives are starting to realize that they do need soap opera fans after alll for their new junks shows to succeed.

You got a point there Heather…. But that also means that you are watching these other shows to know all that.

I agree with you, Heather. The webs are ready to give the soaps the heave-ho yet want their stars to grace their flagging replacement programming in a rating ploy. Why did they not do some of that earlier this decade? Or give their soap talent some exposure in guest roles in primetime?

I don’t watch any of these crappy shows. I got all of theses informations here on Michael Fairman Soaps. I love Michael E Knight, but I wouldn’t be caught dead watching The Talk even if soap operas actors are appearing on it. I will never, and I mean NEVER, watch a show that replaces a soap opera (even if it’s a soap opera that I never watch such as As the World Turns).

I totally agree 100% with this!! Don’t the networks get it?? As a Guiding Light fan, I am insulted that Wayne Brady is going to appear on the Bold and the Beautiful!! The networks really think they can cancel our shows and then try to pimp these replacement shows to get us to watch those? No way!!

It would take a fool to believe one word of what Ashton said about One Life to Live. Aston doesn’t care a finger about OLTL. She’s just trying to cater OLTL fans to get them to watch her moronic show.

This should be hilarious. Wayne is great and so talented. Jack has been before many audiences when he was singing. Alley will be very interesting to watch. Can’t wait to see their costumes!…..

‘Edge of Night’ Mainstay Forrest Compton Dies Following Complications From COVID-19

Sad news to report this Monday.  The longtime star of CBS’ and then ABC’s The Edge of Night, Forrest Compton. has passed away due to complications from COVID-19. Forrest died on Sunday at the age of 94.

His death was reported and confirmed by Compton’s friends and an article in the Shelter Island Reporter.

As Edge of Night and longtime daytime fans know, Forrest played Monticello’s district attorney, Mike Karr.  He played this key role from 1971 until the show’s cancellation in 1984.  The show was originally titled “The Edge of Night” and eventually just became “Edge of Night”.   The soap which was steeped in murder mysteries ran on CBS from 1956–1975 and on ABC from 1975–1984,   In addition, Forrest along with his on-screen wife, Ann Flood (Nancy Karr) were one of the most popular duos in daytime.

Not only did Compton appear on EON, but he also had soap roles on As the World Turns, One Life to Live and All My Children.   In primetime, Forrest was best known for his role on Gomer Pyle: USMC opposite  Jim Nabors and Frank Sutton as Lieutenant Colonel Edward Gray.

In a heartwarming story where fan meets actor and helps him out (according to the Shelter Island Reporter) Compton was only slated to appear in two episodes a week for the next 13 weeks on The Edge of Night, when he needed an apartment in New York City near the studio, so when he heard about a one-bedroom on East 72nd he went to see Al, the super.  Forrest later learned that Al was such a devotee of  The Edge of Night that he locked his office door every day at 2 p.m. to watch uninterrupted. When Forrest mentioned that he had just been hired to play Mike Karr, the super said, “You’re getting that apartment.”’

Sharon Gabet who starred as Raven on Edge of Night, posted on Facebook, a tribute and remembrance of her former co-star: “Woody, as he was affectionately known to all of us on The Edge of Night, was a master professional, hilarious, smart, kind and gentle. I spoke with him a couple years ago on his birthday and he was active and happy in his retirement. Rest in peace, Woody, and give hugs and kisses to Larkin, Lois, Dennis, Nick, Joel, Irving and all the other EDGE alumni up there.  THE story about Woody. He was on EON when they were LIVE. It was brutal, but Woody was one of the best “straight face” men in the business. So he is doing a scene with Nancy his wife (the glorious Ann Flood – another “straight face” master). He walks in the kitchen and sits down and his line was supposed to be “Gee, it’s hard to get up in the morning.” as Nancy gave him his coffee. Instead, Mike Karr says on national TV, “Gee it’s hard to get IT up in the morning, Nancy.” There was pandemonium among the crew during the commercial break as you can imagine.”

Now below, watch the opening title sequence fro the The Edge of Night over the years, many of which feature Forrest as Mike Karr at the very opening or at the end as one of the series most well-known and beloved characters.

Robert Newman Shares Why There Has Not Been a Return to Springfield & ‘Guiding Light’ On-Screen Reunion

Robert Newman, best known to daytime soap fans as Josh Lewis on Guiding Light, sat down earlier this week for a wide-ranging interview on his career with Lauren Van Hemert via her You Tube Channel.

The timing of the posting of the interview as in-line with the date GL was officially canceled back on April 1, 2009.  The series began its historic run on TV from radio back on June 30, 1952, and ultimately aired its final episode on September 18, 2009.

From 1980 to 2009, Robert was one of the mainstays and key leading men of Springfield, and of course, the Josh and Reva (Kim Zimmer) love story is one of the most popular ever in the annals of daytime drama.

Right off at the top of the interview; Hemert noted that what she was asked most by fans of Newman’s and GL’s, when and if there will ever be a Guiding Light on-screen reunion.

Newman responded to the question: “I get that a lot.  That question is unfortunately in the hands of Procter and Gamble more than anything else … and they made it very clear over the years that they’re just not going to release the characters and copyrights to the show.”

Robert also added, “In terms of what you are talking about where there might be some sort of production, where there’s an actual reunion, and we see where Josh and Reva are today and that kind of thing (on their probably 15th marriage) … unless Procter and Gamble is somehow willing to shake loose the rights to the show, I don’t see it happening.”

Watch the full interview with the talented Mr. Newman below.

Then let us know, since P&G has made it very clear for the last several years they are out of the soap business completely, do you think its time they just sell the rights so viewers can see some sort of reboot down the line, especially for a show as beloved as Guiding Light? Comment below.
