The Young and the Restless, Michelle Stafford hosted a private get-together Thursday evening attended by some of the biggest names in daytime including: Days of our Lives, James Scott, Sarah Brown, Peter Reckell, Arianne Zuker, and Patrick Muldoon, General Hospital’s Nancy Lee Grahn, The Young and the Restless, Christian LeBlanc, Jessica Collins, Stacy Haiduk, Kate Linder.

The event was to introduce the soap community to the efforts of The Earth Organization which is independent, grass roots, international non-profit, conservation and environment organization, with new solutions, committed to the creative, responsible rehabilitation of Planet Earth and the plant and animal kingdoms.

Special guest of the evening, Barbara Wiseman from The Earth Organization, informed those in attendance of the damage that is happening in the Gulf of Mexico from the Gulf Oil disaster and how it is not cleaned up.  And because of that, the Gulf is still in extremely bad shape, due to toxic chemicals that are still being sprayed, which are severely affecting the marine life, wildlife, and people living in the Gulf. However, Wiseman says that the organization has identified a solution to rectify the damages.

Michelle Stafford spoke to On-Air On-Soaps on why it was important for her to bring awareness of the organization to the soap community: “What people need to know is what is really happening in the Gulf.  It has been swept under the rug.  People have forgotten everyone in the Gulf.  There are people still dealing with this now, just like they did after Katrina.  We can’t keep on forgetting about people. It’s about us as a group and this country. We need to do something about this.  I am so moved about this cause, because people don’t know, and should know, that there is this toxic substance that in the water, and that oil is still in the water. Our marine life is dying and people have gotten sick. Everything is going to be found out. We will do something, but it has to happen with a group.  So by having this get-together tonight, I wanted to start something.  I brought soap actors with big twitter accounts! (Laughs).  But really, I invited those from daytime who are very environmentally and socially conscious.

You will be hearing more from those in attendance and some of your favorite daytime stars in the coming days on how you can become involved and help The Earth Organization and learn more.  For now you can visit www.theearthorganization.org for more information.

General Hospital Set To Pay Tribute To The Late Susan Brown

2018 has taken with it some beloved soap opera veterans.  One of them was GH fan favorite, Susan Brown, who died at 86 of Alzheimer’s at the end of August.

GH viewers remember Susan’s performances as Dr. Gail Adamson Baldwin.  Gail was Monica’s (Leslie Charleson) best friend, and eventually she married Lee Baldwin (the late Peter Hansen) and was a stepmother to Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner).

Kin took to Twitter last week and revealed that General Hospital taped a tribute to Susan that will be seen in an upcoming episode.

In a tweet, he shared, “A tribute show to Susan shot in the can airing soon!”

With GH’s tape schedule we would presume that sometime in January we will be seeing how GH addresses Susan’s passing and thus the fate of Gail.

So, are you glad to hear GH will be doing something very special to honor Susan?

Do you hope that there are major emotional scenes within it for Kin Shriner and Leslie Charleson?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Network Exec, Angelica McDaniel On Y&R’s Staying Power: “We Have This Award-Winning, Ratings-Generating, Money-Making Show, And It Really Adds Value To CBS.”

This week, The Young and the Restless celebrated 30 years as the number-one rated daytime soap opera.  That is a streak of 1,560 weeks in the top spot.

Angelica McDaniel, executive vp daytime programs and syndicated program development at CBS, spoke to the Hollywood Reporter on what has made this remarkable run; attributing it to strong storytelling and a cast that includes several beloved veterans who have been around the entire time.

The executive noted that while other soaps over the years have fallen by the wayside, and even though we are down to only four surviving network soap operas, that Y&R will be around with no end in sight.

McDaniel stated, “We have this award-winning, ratings-generating, money-making show, and it really adds value to CBS. We expect it be a part of our lineup in the future.”

She also added, “The Young and the Restless has some of the best actors in the industry — not in soaps, not in daytime, but in television. We have iconic, legacy characters that have been on our show for decades. Melody Thomas Scott will be celebrating her 40th year on the show in February. Peter Bergman just reached his 30th anniversary in November. Eric Braeden started in 1980. We just have an incredible arsenal of actors who are so talented and play these characters so well that you don’t even realize they’re characters. They become people who are part of your life, part of your daily existence.”

As for the continual investment and ways the audience watches the show on various platforms, McDaniel expresed: “The great thing about daytime television is we have loyal, passionate viewers, and they really like to tune in day and date. They want to stick with their stories and see what’s happening today. … Having said that, The Young and the Restless is also one of the top streamed shows on CBS.com. As trends evolve, we are where our viewers are, and we’re making shows readily accessible so they can get their fix and follow their stories.”

So, what do you think about Y&R? Will it remain if and when all other soaps have come to theirconclusion? Do you think it will continue on for years to come, given its position at number #1? Comment below!
