The timing of this is interesting. When I have watched a video of a Paley Center discussion with another daytime show, the representatives from the show have included long time cast members AND producers or writers. It is interesting to me that the list here includes ONLY cast members and no one behind the camera. Obviously, it would be odd to include Maria Arena Bell or the Hamner man as a panelist in light of what has happened in the past week. Likewise, it would be strange to include the Phelps woman or anyone else who is just coming back to work on the show.

I wonder if anyone will attempt to discuss the quality of the writing over the past few years? The show really has been in a state of turmoil and download decline since Bill Bell left. I wonder if they will discuss the state of this show over the past few years or just limit the entire thing to a “salute to Bill Bell”? Bell clearly should be mentioned but failing to address anything from the recent past would seem a little dishonest.

Bill Bell didn’t leave, honey – he died of Alzheimers in 2005. He retired in the late 1990s – the show was running very smoothly up until the mid-2000s when Lynn Marie Latham came on board as a consultant, then as Head Writer & Executive Producer. Her reign of terror (canning longtime writers and producers) ended in late 2007 whe she was terminated due to her striking during the 2007/2008 Writer’s Strike, but she wasn’t officially fired until Feb 2008. Then we got Maria Arena Bell, who also wore the double “Head Writer/Executive Producer” hat. We know what has happened since, so we don’t need to go there.

Now that “Y & R” has a separate Executive Producer and sole Head Writer, let’s hope they can whip this show back into shape – from what I see coming up this week, is it any wonder MAB was canned???

This is great news. Y&R surely can creatively regain its footing. As the #1 daytime drama, it can afford to make changes without as much risk as a low-rated program. And too many people want to see success here. It would be good to see on the dais some of those who may no longer be part fothe program but were instrumental in its initial success along with the stars of today. Best of luck! When is the 10,000th episode?

I appreciate the aesthetics of Young and the Restless so much; the sumptuous sets, lighting and upstage flowers, etc…. but would secretly love more location shooting. I’ve always loved that about B&B, seems to add a bit more immediacy and authenticity to the scene. I hope that it something they can integrate, while still maintaining all that is gloriously over the top and fab about Y&R. 🙂

‘The Bachelor’ New Key Art Revealed Playing Up Colton Underwood’s Virginity

The upcoming season of The Bachelor does not roll out till January, when season 23 gets underway on the 7th of that month, but ABC today released its key art first poster for promotion of their latest ‘Bachelor’ Colton Underwood.

Chris Harrison host and EP of the series, posted via Instagram: “It’s now officially official and I have the official exclusive poster to prove it. Colton’s dramatic season of #TheBachelor premieres Mon Jan 7th.”

The poster has the slogan: “What does he have to lose?” and one would assume its a nod to Colton’s noted and much discussed virginity.

Viewers first met Colton in Becca Kufrin’s season 14 of The Bachelorette, where he came in as fourth runner-up.  He continued on the franchise on Bachelor In Paradise, and his controversial on and off again relationship with Tia Booth, Becca’s friend.

Just how will Colton handle kissing a bevy of ladies, the fantasy suites, and more?  Guess we will find out,and if his season will be a doozy compared to the lackluster season of Arie Luyendk Jr., until Arie dumped his choice for love Becca and went back on his word and fell back in love with the runner-up  – his now fiancee and expectant mother of his chid, Lauren Burnham.

So, what do you think of the poster art for the new season of The Bachelor? Will you be checking out Colton during his effort to find true love? Comment below.
