Y&R and DAYS Summer Stories: Men Without Shirts! – Watch the Videos!

Courtesy CBS

So it’s summer.  It’s hot outside, and when it’s hot outside soap opera hunks strip half naked! And, the summer of 2012 looks no different!

Over in Genoa City on The Young and the Restless, Nick (Joshua Morrow) and Neil (Kristoff St. John) play basketball shirtless while Carmine (Marco Dapper) steps out of the shower for an in awe Abby (Marcy Rylan).  Meanwhile, Billy and Victoria, Chloe and Kevin, Cane and Lily, and Adam and Chelsea, get shall-we-say cozy!  All of this action takes place in this week’s CBS summer promo.

Over in Salem, it’s the couples that non-are-to-pleased about that are featured in the new NBC summer promo including a shirtless Rafe (Galen Gering) with Carrie (Christie Clark), a shirtless Dr. Daniel (Shawn Christian) doing it on the desk with Nicole (Arianne Zuker) and of course a shirtless EJ (James Scott)!

So after the jump watch “Men without Shirts” and let us know who is your favorite! And, what do you think about the couples shown in the spots?  Who would you like to see more of? And, who would you like to see less of? And we don’t mean clothes!  Let us know!

Am a Days fan, but these guys are not my favs. Too much exposure! And I don’t mean their bodies. We see way too much of EJ and Rafe.
Would like to see a whole lot more of Jack and Bo, before they are gone, and I always want to see WAY MORE of my favorite Salem man….John!

Shirts or no shirts, I have zero interest in seeing these couples on Days of our Lives. The couple I want to see the most is the one they won’t show, Will and Sonny. Thanks to the talents of both Chandler Massey and Freddie Smith, and the fantastic chemistry they share, WilSon has the potential to be daytime’s next super couple. Sadly, Days seems too cowardly to move forward with on on-screen romance for these much loved characters. It’s disappointing and aggravating, especially since this show is running out of time. I really wish they would grow a pair, before it’s too late! I want WilSon now!

That’s great news!!! It can’t happen soon enough! I really hope they do their love story justice and treat them fairly and honestly! There is great potential for WilSon and it would be a real shame to waste it! Also glad to hear that Judi will have more screen time! Love her!

These men should always be shirtless, regardless that it’s summer lol.

But God Carmine on Y&R, EJ and Rafe on Days have amazing bodies, they should always be shirtless. Daniel on Days may need to go but he has a hot, hairy body!

Well I will always defer to the character Nicholas Cassidine formerly on GH..his body was magnificent! No other male character can compare.

The November episode of the monthly podcast featured special guests: Soap icon, Linda Dano (Ex-Felicia, AW, Gretel, (OLTL, GH, Port Charles, AMC), and Cynthia, ATWT), General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan), The Young and the Restless’ Beth Maitland (Traci), Days of our Lives Freddie Smith (Sonny), and listeners were in for a surprise when GH’s Maura West (Ava Jerome) called-in as well during the show.

During this fun night of chat, Linda Dano kicked-off the show as she and Michael reminisced about the night she won the Daytime Emmy in 1993 for her role as Felicia Gallant on Another World.  Then, the duo talked about: her soap career as Gretel “Rae” Cummings on the ABC Daytime line-up, her incomparable fashion sense, and how fans can see her first acting project in 12 years when The Chronicle Mysteries debuts with Alison Sweeney (Sami, DAYS) in March of 2019 on the Hallmark Channel.

Next, General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom discussed taking on and revisiting playing the dual roles of Kevin Collins, and his serial killer twin brother, Ryan Chamberlain.  In addition, Jon talked about his leading ladies, Genie Francis and the #KevLaur hash tag, and Ryan’s interest in Ava Jerome.  Then, after answering some questions from listeners, Maura West surprised her scene partner and called-in to chat with him.

Beth Maitland came on to Soap Nation Live! next, and she discussed finally having the opportunity after 36 years to explore Traci’s relationship with her siblings, Jack and Ashley, that came about in Eileen Davidson’s exit storyline.  The Daytime Emmy-winning actress also revealed her favorite Y&R storyline over the years. Maitland has received critical-acclaim for her recent work on the CBS Daytime drama series.

The final guest of the night was Freddie Smith.  The popular DAYS star talked on the latest developments of Sonny and Will, where now the two can be together since Paul and Will broke up, but will their happiness last long?  Freddie gives the listeners a preview of what’s to come.  Then, a listener calls in revealing how through watching Days of our Lives and the Sonny and Will story and romance, how it helped him come out and to have a family.

Last, during our Game Show segment, a lucky caller eventually wins the Sonny Kiriakis-centric trivia game and will receive a Days of our Lives swag/goodie bag and an autographed personalized photo of Freddie Smith.

Soaps Lift Boycott Threat Of Daytime Emmys

In a key move to allow those performers in front of the camera and behind the scenes crew and creatives to be acknowledged for their accomplishments this calendar year, the four daytime dramas collectively have decided to lift their threatened boycott and participate in the upcoming 46th annual Daytime Emmy competition.

This comes after the four network soaps (Days of our Lives, General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful, and The Young and the Restless) banded together after being unsatisfied with snafu’s coming out of the 45th annual Daytime Emmy Awards earlier this year in April, and a list of grievances and concerns they asked to be addressed by the organization that administers the Emmy contest.

Then, following an internal investigation by NATAS by the law firm of Fletcher, Heald & Hildreth of Washington, DC, the results which were released on November 8th, and being in receipt of their findings, the soaps decided to move forward while still having concerns they want addressed.

In a statement from the group, a spokesperson related to Deadline, who broke the story late Friday: “As a group, we are not in agreement with all of the conclusions that NATAS reached.  However, in the spirit of working with NATAS and the TV Academy on improving the integrity of the Daytime Emmys, we have lifted our boycott. We look forward to meeting with NATAS to discuss their findings and our concerns in greater detail.”

On Saturday, someone close to the situation said to Michael Fairman TV: “Our participation doesn’t mean we accept their proposal moving forward, we still have major issues that we will be discussing with the Chair and President (of NATAS), but as a collective whole, we don’t want to penalize our actors for NATAS’ mis-management.”

The 46th Annual Daytime Emmy submissions began earlier this week on November 12th, with the Daytime Emmys slated to be handed out in early May of 2019.

So, are you glad that the network soaps have lifted their threatened boycott so that your favorite performers, whose performances you have loved over the last 11 months can be acknowledged for their talents and hard work? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
