We Love Soaps,Newcomb on 50 Greatest Soap Actress countdown!

As many know yesterday We Love Soaps revealed its number one actress in its Top 50 countdown of the Greatest Soap Actresses of All Time, in which The Bold and the Beautiful’s, Susan Flannery ( Stephanie) took the top spot.  So On-Air On-Soaps asked the website’s editor-in-chief, (and brainchild of the list), Roger Newcomb to give us his thoughts exclusively on why he decided to put together the countdown and engage a panel of experts for his concept,  as well as his personal thoughts on the final five!   Newcomb and his site truly have cornered the market on being the official soap historical society!  Who doesn’t love that?

Newcomb on why came up with the 50 Greatest Actress  list: “We decided to do the 50 Greatest Actresses countdown because many of us were drawn into daytime as children by some of these performers.  Several of them have never won Emmys and we thought this would be a great way to bring attention to all the talented women daytime has been blessed with over the years.  No single panelist picked their Top 5 in the exact order they finished but two of 14 people had the same five actresses.”

Newcomb on his feelings on the final five actresses who earned the top spots:  “As for the Top 5, I love them all.  Susan Flannery has been wowing daytime audiences since 1996.  Kim Zimmer gave my favorite performance of all time – the “Slut of Springfield” scene.  Erika Slezak has made the same role interesting for 39 years which is not easy.  I started my personal list with the great Beverlee McKinsey.  And Robin Strasser is the most dedicated actress I’ve ever seen.  It’s a shame that many of their classic performances, espcially Strasser and McKinsey on Another World and Flannery on Days of Our Lives, seem to be lost forever.”

The Bold and the Beautiful Ratings Winner With Phoebe is Beth Reveal

Great news for The Bold and the Beautiful and their long-awaited payoff: that the little girl being raised by Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) as “Phoebe” is really Liam (Scott Clifton) and Hope’s (Annika Noelle) daughter, Beth, who they believed had died in the long and twisty baby switch storyline.

B&B was the highest rated daytime television show in the key 25-54 womens demo and the first time in the 32-year-old history of the CBS sudser that it has been atop of that demo. That is not only among the network soaps but all series genres in daytime for the week of August 5-9 –  quite the feat.

During the ratings week, Liam figured out that Phoebe was Beth, and eventually after Thomas’ (Matt Atkinson) manipulations told Hope the truth.

All this goes to show that as frustrated as viewers get wanting the truth to come out in a story they follow; when it finally does, they are along for the ride. Something B&B executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell does exceptionally well with big umbrella storylines that hold major ramifications for many on the canvas.

Congrats to Brad and the B&B team!

So, what do you think of BOLD’s performance in the ratings for the big week in story? Comment below

Kelly Monaco Addresses Billy Miller’s Departure From GH

In a post via her twitter account, General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco (Sam) shared her heartbreak on her longtime scene partner, Billy Miller’s (Drew) exit from the ABC daytime drama series.  This was the first time that Kelly addressed the situation in a public forum.

Miller came on to GH back in 2014 as Jason Morgan, following the departure of Steve Burton, who then wound up on Y&R.  When Burton returned to GH in 2017, Miller’s part was then turned-in-to, Jason’s twin, Drew Cain.

Through a great portion of Miller’s run on GH, he was paired romantically on -screen with Monaco and the duo were, and have remained, one of the most popular duo’s in daytime.

Monaco expressed the following in her message: “I feel like I have to address this situation. #BillyMiller ‘s untimely departure from #gh. Honestly, I can not come up with the words to describe how I feel about this decision… a decision that may not be what our audience thinks to be true. I’m heartbroken… more to come.”
