One of the true fan favorites of daytime drama, The Young and the Restless Daniel Goddard (Cane Ashby), posted a picture of himself on social media on Tuesday, while updating his followers on his broken elbow.

Goddard is scheduled to undergo surgery tomorrow after injuring himself late last week during a fight scene, while taping an upcoming episode of the number one soap opera.

But as the actor related, it’s not been an easy road for him thus far. Today, Daniel shared an injury update his facebook page: “My elbow is still broken and hasn’t been fixed yet because it’s still too swollen to operate… The break is still bleeding out as you can see by the color of my fingers… but I’m at The Young and the Restless today filming because we have so much to do for our huge November sweeps story lines! I have surgery scheduled for tomorrow morning where they will screw and wire my elbow back together.  I wanted to say thank you! You have been such a source of comfort, support and strength over the last few days and I truly and dearly appreciate every single message wishing me well. You have no idea know how much it means to me. I love you!”

Hopefully Wednesday, Daniel will be able to have his surgery to put his elbow back together!  What did you think of Goddard’s heartfelt message?  Share your continued well-wishes for Daniel in the comment section below.

Oh Hell no he didn’t! While he may not have raped Avery, he snapped and tried to rape Cane. But he was not Abel.
Cane may have a broken elbow, but Joe is in a coma.

Like the bloke and all but why is he making such a big deal about a broken elbow?
I am going to start calling him Camille.

Since he has to have surgery I would say it is a big deal.

I wish him the best of luck!! In the words of the orthopedic surgeon who operated on my shattered elbow 3 years ago, “Elbows are a bitch!” (Please don’t anyone take offense; I’m merely quoting him.) It will be awhile before Mr. Goddard is tying his own neckties again. Three years later I still can’t straighten my arm completely, but I’ve regained most of my range of motion.

I’m not a doctor, I don’t even play one on TV (ancient Peter Bergman joke), but based on my personal experience this may be an injury from which a full recovery is impossible.

Good luck Daniel on your surgery, hope you feel better real soon. You’re such a talented actor and capable of so much . Take care, you’re such a gracious man and a joy to your fans. Much love and take care.

Nick Cannon Daytime Talker Set To Premiere On September 21

More talk shows are coming daytime viewers way come the fall with the announcement of the premiere date for The Masked Singer host, Nick Cannon’s daytime talk show, titled aptly, Nick Cannon.

The company behind the upcoming nationally syndicated series, Debmar-Mercury, says the new show will bow on September 21 and has been cleared in more than 90% of markets in the United States.

According to Deadline: “Cannon’s production company, Ncredible Entertainment, and Debmar-Mercury will co-produce the talker featuring his take on the latest in trending pop culture stories and celebrity interviews.”

Ira Bernstein and Mort Marcus, co-presidents of Debmar-Mercury, said,  “Our great station partners are hungry for a rising, versatile and dynamic talent like Nick. His light-hearted style quickly wins over viewers and gives them a much-needed escape from the world.  We’ve been asked why we skipped doing test shows and explained there was no need. It’s obvious to anyone who watched Nick guest host for Wendy Williams last year how much he loves daytime talk and, based on the reaction of fans, how much they love him.”

Cannon added: “It’s been thrilling going through this process, and to see the widespread support that the show has received and the milestones we’ve achieved is mind blowing, We’re gearing up to deliver a must-see show and I’m looking forward to coming to you on your TV this fall.”

‘Edge of Night’ Mainstay Forrest Compton Dies Following Complications From COVID-19

Sad news to report this Monday.  The longtime star of CBS’ and then ABC’s The Edge of Night, Forrest Compton. has passed away due to complications from COVID-19. Forrest died on Sunday at the age of 94.

His death was reported and confirmed by Compton’s friends and an article in the Shelter Island Reporter.

As Edge of Night and longtime daytime fans know, Forrest played Monticello’s district attorney, Mike Karr.  He played this key role from 1971 until the show’s cancellation in 1984.  The show was originally titled “The Edge of Night” and eventually just became “Edge of Night”.   The soap which was steeped in murder mysteries ran on CBS from 1956–1975 and on ABC from 1975–1984,   In addition, Forrest along with his on-screen wife, Ann Flood (Nancy Karr) were one of the most popular duos in daytime.

Not only did Compton appear on EON, but he also had soap roles on As the World Turns, One Life to Live and All My Children.   In primetime, Forrest was best known for his role on Gomer Pyle: USMC opposite  Jim Nabors and Frank Sutton as Lieutenant Colonel Edward Gray.

In a heartwarming story where fan meets actor and helps him out (according to the Shelter Island Reporter) Compton was only slated to appear in two episodes a week for the next 13 weeks on The Edge of Night, when he needed an apartment in New York City near the studio, so when he heard about a one-bedroom on East 72nd he went to see Al, the super.  Forrest later learned that Al was such a devotee of  The Edge of Night that he locked his office door every day at 2 p.m. to watch uninterrupted. When Forrest mentioned that he had just been hired to play Mike Karr, the super said, “You’re getting that apartment.”’

Sharon Gabet who starred as Raven on Edge of Night, posted on Facebook, a tribute and remembrance of her former co-star: “Woody, as he was affectionately known to all of us on The Edge of Night, was a master professional, hilarious, smart, kind and gentle. I spoke with him a couple years ago on his birthday and he was active and happy in his retirement. Rest in peace, Woody, and give hugs and kisses to Larkin, Lois, Dennis, Nick, Joel, Irving and all the other EDGE alumni up there.  THE story about Woody. He was on EON when they were LIVE. It was brutal, but Woody was one of the best “straight face” men in the business. So he is doing a scene with Nancy his wife (the glorious Ann Flood – another “straight face” master). He walks in the kitchen and sits down and his line was supposed to be “Gee, it’s hard to get up in the morning.” as Nancy gave him his coffee. Instead, Mike Karr says on national TV, “Gee it’s hard to get IT up in the morning, Nancy.” There was pandemonium among the crew during the commercial break as you can imagine.”

Now below, watch the opening title sequence fro the The Edge of Night over the years, many of which feature Forrest as Mike Karr at the very opening or at the end as one of the series most well-known and beloved characters.

Robert Newman Shares Why There Has Not Been a Return to Springfield & ‘Guiding Light’ On-Screen Reunion

Robert Newman, best known to daytime soap fans as Josh Lewis on Guiding Light, sat down earlier this week for a wide-ranging interview on his career with Lauren Van Hemert via her You Tube Channel.

The timing of the posting of the interview as in-line with the date GL was officially canceled back on April 1, 2009.  The series began its historic run on TV from radio back on June 30, 1952, and ultimately aired its final episode on September 18, 2009.

From 1980 to 2009, Robert was one of the mainstays and key leading men of Springfield, and of course, the Josh and Reva (Kim Zimmer) love story is one of the most popular ever in the annals of daytime drama.

Right off at the top of the interview; Hemert noted that what she was asked most by fans of Newman’s and GL’s, when and if there will ever be a Guiding Light on-screen reunion.

Newman responded to the question: “I get that a lot.  That question is unfortunately in the hands of Procter and Gamble more than anything else … and they made it very clear over the years that they’re just not going to release the characters and copyrights to the show.”

Robert also added, “In terms of what you are talking about where there might be some sort of production, where there’s an actual reunion, and we see where Josh and Reva are today and that kind of thing (on their probably 15th marriage) … unless Procter and Gamble is somehow willing to shake loose the rights to the show, I don’t see it happening.”

Watch the full interview with the talented Mr. Newman below.

Then let us know, since P&G has made it very clear for the last several years they are out of the soap business completely, do you think its time they just sell the rights so viewers can see some sort of reboot down the line, especially for a show as beloved as Guiding Light? Comment below.
