On Monday, The Young and the Restless’ Jason Thompson (Billy Abbott) was one of the special guests along with 58th Annual Grammys host, and NCIS: Los Angeles star LL Cool J.  Thompson’s segment aired towards the end of the episode, but ‘Talk’ co-hosts: Julie Chen, Aisha Tyler, Sharon Osbourne, Sara Gilbert, and Sheryl Underwood posed several questions to Jason.

When asked about coming aboard to Y&R, Thompson related that it was easy fitting into playing on the Genoa City canvas.  Jason told the ladies of The Talk: “I’m sure you’ve met many of them over the years, but they’re just great people and I mean it feels really good to be over at CBS.”   Jason also noted that his first scenes as Billy called for him to just lay still in a hospital, “I have to say as an actor it was fantastic, because I had all the castmates , all the people that mean the most to the character, crying and billowing over the character, so I learned a lot about what their relationships were. How we kind of got along in this past life, or the life I wasn’t really a part of, which was great. I was kind of mentally taking my notes as I was laying there trying not to, you know, wink or do anything.”

The ladies did acknowledge Jason’s time on General Hospital as Dr. Patrick Drake, and he  in turn related a story about his most memorable fan encounter which happened while on GH.   Now on Y&R, since Billy is asking Victoria (Amelia Heinle) to marry him again, the panel brought up Jason’s recent real-life wedding to Paloma Jonas.  And if you caught the episode, Jason revealed a few interesting tidbits about their relationship, and it was clear just how much he loves her.

You can watch a clip of Jason’s opening comments on The Talk after the jump.   Then let us know, if you are enjoying Jason’s performances as Billy Abbott on Y&R?

What in the blue hell is going on with Sheryl’s hair! But anyway, Jason was great. He actually got to talk. He didnt beat around the bush, he is happy to be off GH and on Y&R! PS: His wife is beautiful AND the wedding pictures are fantastic!

Jason is great on Y&R.

Sheryl was awful. She was shouting. There is no need. There are such things as microphones and volume controls. Is she always like that? I only watched Jason’s segment. I get Sheryl is a fan, but you can be a fan and be professional. She was just awful. I couldn’t watch the show on a regular basis with her on it.

I wish Jason’s segment had been longer.

His segment was way short, I agree. Almost one of those “blink and you’ll
miss it” things. Wished for more time for him.
I FFed to his part…and oh my gosh, that Sheryl really is a bit much!

He works for CBS now and the network pacify’s the fans with this little segment. Thats okay, I knew what to expect. JT is a class act and thats all that matters. Oh, and Sheryl didnt mount him like humping post the way she did with Steve Burton! It was gross and classless!

Hi Timmm, Ugh, that visual isnt pretty, so I am glad I never saw it, lol.
I am guessing Steve’s reaction was polite…or did he show
an obvious “please get off of me” expression?

Seriously, when Sheryl was on I turned down the volume so I didnt blow a woofer! She is loud and child-like!

LOl you are very annoying. Sheryl Underwood is a funny lady and a soap fun. The Talk is a terrific talk show. You need to shut the hell up and please go away.

Sometimes I feel fortunate to have just found Y&R in the last couple of years. That way I can enjoy Jason in his new role as Billy Abbott without all of the other Billy’s to compare him to. But I must admit I like him way better than Burgess. I think he’s fitting in well, and it’s really good to see him be able to add more layers to his role than he did as Dr. Patrick. And I like him better with Victoria than Robin…there’s more sizzle, at least for me.

Want to add that even though a fairly new viewer to Y&R it didn’t take long to get bored with Neil and family

Patrick

YES !

YES !

and MORE…. YES! The Winters Clan are dead ! dull ! ovah

WHERE ???? is Drucilla

just bring her back… Y&R you have nothing to lose and everything to gain…

Devon has a setback… is once again deaf…. let’s throw in dumb and blind.

Drucilla returns to cache 2 billion dollars
Drucilla dynasties her purse
Drucilla la lady is hot about town smelling like green and purring change

ensnares Neil… he’s still got some HOTtie! better outfox quickly Dru…
still out on the red light… Nikki could easily beget

especially now that Neil fell of the wagon

Okay, nothing against the actor, but they need to recast the role of Billy Abbott ASAP. I mean, I’ll I see is Patrick Drake pretending he is Billy Abbott other than Billy Abbott himself. Also, I feel the character of Billy could have been put to rest for a year like Phylliss was before the role was recast!

I’m enjoying him over on Y&R JT is talented. I think he is a great asset to the show. I’m a fan of the show as well as B&B.

Drew Barrymore Daytime Talk Show Pilot In The Works

This fall, new talkers from Tamron Hall and Kelly Clarkson will be part of the daytime television landscape, and now comes word that Drew Barrymore may enter the space with a new talk show for her that is in development with the pilot being shot this coming week.

According to Variety, details of the proposed one-hour show are not all clear, but Drew is said to be one of the executive producers of the pilot episode and yet there is no showrunner attached to the project at this time.  Barrymore’s company, Flower Films is likely attached as well.

Back in 2016, Barrymore had a deal in place with Warner Brothers Telepictures for a talk show, but that never came to pass, in part to a lukewarm response from TV station groups at that time.

However now the new regime at CBS’ syndication arm is said to have ‘high hopes’ for the show and they feel that Drew will appeal and do well in the daytime arena.

Barrymore recently appeared in her third season of  Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet in its 30 episode season. Through her Flower Films she was been an executive producer on unscripted series including TLC’s Rattled and VH1’s Tough Love.

So, would you be interested. or intrigued to see what kind of show Drew Barrymore has to offer in daytime? Think she would be a good host? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

The Bold and the Beautiful Ratings Winner With Phoebe is Beth Reveal

Great news for The Bold and the Beautiful and their long-awaited payoff: that the little girl being raised by Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) as “Phoebe” is really Liam (Scott Clifton) and Hope’s (Annika Noelle) daughter, Beth, who they believed had died in the long and twisty baby switch storyline.

B&B was the highest rated daytime television show in the key 25-54 womens demo and the first time in the 32-year-old history of the CBS sudser that it has been atop of that demo. That is not only among the network soaps but all series genres in daytime for the week of August 5-9 –  quite the feat.

During the ratings week, Liam figured out that Phoebe was Beth, and eventually after Thomas’ (Matt Atkinson) manipulations told Hope the truth.

All this goes to show that as frustrated as viewers get wanting the truth to come out in a story they follow; when it finally does, they are along for the ride. Something B&B executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell does exceptionally well with big umbrella storylines that hold major ramifications for many on the canvas.

Congrats to Brad and the B&B team!

So, what do you think of BOLD’s performance in the ratings for the big week in story? Comment below

Kelly Monaco Addresses Billy Miller’s Departure From GH

In a post via her twitter account, General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco (Sam) shared her heartbreak on her longtime scene partner, Billy Miller’s (Drew) exit from the ABC daytime drama series.  This was the first time that Kelly addressed the situation in a public forum.

Miller came on to GH back in 2014 as Jason Morgan, following the departure of Steve Burton, who then wound up on Y&R.  When Burton returned to GH in 2017, Miller’s part was then turned-in-to, Jason’s twin, Drew Cain.

Through a great portion of Miller’s run on GH, he was paired romantically on -screen with Monaco and the duo were, and have remained, one of the most popular duo’s in daytime.

Monaco expressed the following in her message: “I feel like I have to address this situation. #BillyMiller ‘s untimely departure from #gh. Honestly, I can not come up with the words to describe how I feel about this decision… a decision that may not be what our audience thinks to be true. I’m heartbroken… more to come.”
