I’d guess- there isn’t a Y&R fan that ever thought Y&R wouldn’t be renewed for 2019-2029.
And Y&R will, without a doubt be renewed for the next 5 years, and likely beyond that.

I would worry about GH and its future.
(( it desperately needs to clean house get new writers/producer with new modern ideas))

You are soooo right, SusieQ……can’t wait for the ( spoiler alert) new hunky ‘recruit’ to make an appearance on Y&R. It’s a sin for anyone to look that good!! Swoon….. A “Summer” contender? OOOO-la la, my friend….Kyle will be so jealous…..sparks and caca will simultaneously hit the fan. Summer will do her best to play the beguiling coquette; the femme fatale …..all to get a rise out of Kyle ( again, no pun intended; Ha!). Yet, ultimately she will fall prey to her own wiles and will end up having feelings for the new guy!! Someone has amnesia, su—-it’s obviously… Read more »

heeey Celia..
Y&R new hot guy will hook up with Summer and that will make Kyle jealous(you got it)
It’s like; she’s mine you can’t have her even if I don’t want her thing..
Until then Summer will get revengeful and plot against Kyle to take him down to get her jollies. That is obvious too.

The new hunk won’t be seen until July–so?

I said, as soon as Adam was recast, it was going to another run-of-the-mill amnesia story, sigh
** cant they ever come up with something new?**

Hi, SusieQ, I started typing, and my post, mysteriously disappeared into cyber space–reception here su*ks. Anyway…I do agree with you, except for one thing. I don’t know if I can honestly say that Summer will deliberately hurt Kyle. She does love him. I have seen a change, for the better, in Summer….that’s coming from me—I never had anything nice to say about her, yet her transformation to adulthood is working for me. ….unless it’s a big act, making me underestimate her as a good actress. I like the emergence of a new Summer. I think she will get her jollies… Read more »

Since I am a fan of both shows, I am glad they are getting picked up again. With that being said I wish someone could show these comments sections to the powers that be of both shows and listen to the fans. I really have no problems with Y&R, except for the fact that people must think Adam Newman is part cat and he has nine lives. If I am thinking wrong, someone please correct me. But wasn’t Adam last seen being blown up while inside a car. How is that one going to get explained away? I hope this… Read more »

Hello again. I just got through making a comment to you on the return of MSEagen on Y&R. I have had to stop watching B&B for a while. I hate the dead/switched baby SL, and so sick of Hope crying all over her baby’s ultrasound picture, and as you said, always trying to send Liam to Steffy. I don’t like the new Thomas either, with Hope or Sally. He’s as nutty as his mother.We all know this baby thing will come out eventually, but all this crap in the meanwhile drives me crazy!

Hello back Violet. I know what you mean. All this in between nonsense before they get to the “good stuff” is aggravating me as well. How ironic that Taylor is supposed to be some top notch psychiatrist, and she is missing a few screws along with her son. Today’s episode (5/3) was just as bad. Now Thomas is going to turn his sweet little boy into a head case as well. I wonder if Flo’s mother is going to start hitting on Ridge. She respected Bill and Katie. I wonder if she will do the same for Queen Brooke. Time… Read more »

We are on the same wave length. I’m wondering the same thing about Flo’s mom.
With her history with men, you know she isn’t going to just go her merry way, without causing trouble. The big question, will she aim for Ridge, or her old friend’s husband Eric? Look how quickly she got that gown on. I am sure she wants a piece of that pie she’s pushing Flo to secure.

The thought of her going after the old man never occurred to me, but it’s an interesting thought. After the way Shauna pulled that stun gun on Zoe, I’m sure Shauna has a little craziness running through her system as well. I think Quinn and Shauna would make for an interesting cat fight

Adam is coming back? An awfully lot is happening! Perhaps too much too fast!

The Talk now loses Sara its founder and already lost Julie! And so the ratings (2+ Million) are not much better than As The World Turns when it was cancelled many years ago. I have never liked the show since it replaced an old favorite. Marie Osmond may bring a small bump up in ratings but I can’t see her and Sharon carrying that show. Marie needs to stick with her Nutri-System ads.

Soap Smarts: How Daytime Dramas Are Using Ingenuity To Get Back Into Production During COVID-19

Daytime dramas seldom get the credit they deserve, and now they should be getting further credit for being the first back into production as the coronavirus pandemic continues to rage on, and trying to implement new ways to keep their trademarks love scenes, intimate moments and two-person scenes somehow looking in tact; even though it will be far from how it was done in the past.

In the story from the Associated Press The Bold and the Beautiful EP, and head writer, Brad Bell – who’s soap was the first one back into the studio – commented on how the show is utilizing mannequins, or real-life significant others to help pull off close contact love scenes and how it is rather groundbreaking. “We feel almost like television pioneers all these years later because we’re the first ones out, blazing new ways of producing the shows with the current safety standards, and we’re getting the job done. It’s very exciting.”

When B&B scripts written pre-coronavirus were reviewed in preparation for shooting during the pandemic now, originally all the cinches and smooches were cut. But Bell found a solution whereby a remote actor recites lines as their on-camera scene partner responds in a “low, intimate voice” and engages in “beautiful, yearning eye contact” with an off-camera doll.

As far as the soapy embrace or lip-lock, B&B cast member Katrina Bowden (Flo) has had her husband and musician Ben Jorgensen stand in for her on-screen love interest, Darin Brooks (Wyatt) since returning to taping new episodes.

Days of our Lives EP Ken Corday noted to AP:  The “learning curve” is steep. Before the pandemic, “we were producing eight, one-hour episodes a week. That’s basically 40 or 50 scenes a day.  That’s going to be basically impossible to reopen, so to speak, at that pace. We’re going to have to be more careful. So will there be five shows a week, or more? Yet to be determined.  It will certainly cost more.”

B&B and now Y&R which heads back into production next week, and the others soaps, will be using the company called Reel Health, which launched in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to serve the entertainment industry, and hires medically trained workers to monitor sets and enforce protocols developed by a company epidemiologist and in accordance with industry and government standards,

Alicia Rodis, a veteran intimacy coordinator who helped the actors guild develop guidelines for taping scenes of romance and simulated sex. shared: “Finding ways to put romance on the screen is inevitable and necessary.  At the end of the day, intimacy isn’t going anywhere. Physical intimacy is a part of the human experience. And we’re going to have to find a way to be able to continue to tell these stories, even in extraordinary circumstances.”

So, what do you think of how soaps are tackling taping episodes in the new normal to give their fans a sense of all that they love from their favorite daytime dramas during COVID-19? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
