    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 Young and the Restless Pushes Back Production Restart Date Due To COVID-19 Spike

As the coronavirus pandemic is spiking again in LA County and California, CBS’ Daytime-Emmy winning The Young and the Restless has now postponed their previously announced goal of a production restart of July 6th to now eyeing July 13th as their new start date.  Deadline first broke the news.

But all of this could change, given that California Governor Gavin Newsom and LA County health officials have come forward that the spike of COVID-19 cases, test positivity and hospitalization rates in California have given the Governor serious concerns, so much so that now he is tightening restrictions again for the state to include: once again shutting down indoor dining, closing all bars, indoor movie theatres, as well as all beaches being closed for the 4th of July holiday.

Just last Friday, Y&R picked up the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series at the 47th annual Daytime Emmy Awards. 

General Hospital is still eyeing a mid-July production restart, The Bold and the Beautiful had gone back into production and Days of our Lives still has episodes banked into the fall, and at this time have not yet announced plans to restart production.

So, do you think Y&R can safely go back into production in a few weeks given the COVID-19 uptick in new cases? Comment below,

GH’s Michael Easton Posts “Ask Me Anything” Part Two

Over the coronavirus pandemic General Hospital star Michael Easton (Hamilton Finn) has been answering several fans questions posted to him in a series of posts on his official Facebook page. 

This week, Easton posted part two of his “Ask Me Anything”, and the fan favorite said he he will do his best to get through everyone’s questions and thanked those who made donations to America Health Care Workers and food banks during COVID-19.

In part two; questions ranged from: his connection with his on-screen brother played by Josh Swickard, if he would ever consider a return to Days of our Lives to reprise the role of Tanner Scofield (his first soap role), what is his favorite part of playing Hamilton Finn, and the casting of his on-screen daughter Violet played by Jophielle Love and more.

One question posed to Easton revolved around the just completed Daytime Emmys, when he was asked: “How many times have you submitted yourself for the Emmys? Some actors seem to put a real emphasis on being nominated but you don’t seem to care that much?”

Michael responded: “I’m pacing myself. I’ve maybe submitted three or four times in twenty years. It’s a lovely honor but not something I focus on. Everyday I try to give the best, most truthful performance I can and as I long as I can do that…I live with myself.”

Make sure to “Like” Michael’s official Facebook page, if you have not already to see more of his “Ask Me Anything’s”

So, what are your hopes for Hamilton Finn when Michael returns to taping new episodes of General Hospital in the future?

These were strong numbers for Friday night, and hopefully CBS and the other major networks will now continue this, and serve up the Daytime Emmy Awards moving forward.
