In a fantastic new interview out today from TV, The Young and the Restless, Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki) discusses her latest storyline which she is relishing every day!  As fans have witnessed,  Nikki is back to her boozy battle with the bottle, thanks to evil, Meggie (Sean Young). Then, mix in another evil-doer Sean Kanan (Deacon) and the tipsy love of Victor’s Newman’s life has a house of cards that are set to come tumbling down.  Today October 12th,  Melody is also celebrating her 25th wedding anniversary to current B&B producer, Ed Scott! Congrats! Now, here are some juicy excerpts from the new feature:

Melody on what happens when Victor finds out she is hit the sauce: “I can’t reveal it, but let’s just say it’s not a good thing. [Laughs] But it’s so good. Wait till you see what happens! Nikki keeps thinking that if she can just get to the wedding that it’ll solve her drinking problem. But it’s magical thinking, of course. She always thinks that the answer to her problems is to marry Victor.”

Melody on if there will be a romance for Nikki with Deacon Sharpe ( Sean Kanan): ” Ohhhh, I hope so! It would be great if it started out a scam but then Deacon finds that he kinda likes her. Nikki keeps showing up at his seedy motel room and at first she’s shocked. “You live here?” she says. I don’t think Nikki realizes there are a lot of people living like that on the other side of the tracks. [Laughs] Which is where Nikki comes from! She thinks she has a drinking buddy in Deacon, and that he’s getting just as drunk as she is. But he’s really drinking water, not gin.”

Are you loving Melody’s performances and this story as much as we are here at On-Air On-Soaps?  Let us know!

I am not fond of the drinking problem for Nikki. I think Deacon is really scamming Sean Young. I think he really wants to help Nikki and and to expose Sean Young as the bitch she is……


Let the bitch fall off the wagon. She blames her relapse on the drama Victoria dealt with due to Deacon. Victoria got in the bed with Deacon with a smile on her face. Nikki’s not far behind. It’s not usual for her the sleep with Victor’s enemies. Now it’s Victoria’s turn. Bottom up!!!


I LOVE MTS!!!!! It’s about time she got some press! How many more years are going to go by without an Emmy nod??? It’s a horrible snub and the Emmy voters should be ashamed of themselves. Who could forget the work she did when Joshua Morrow’s character was presumed dead in a plane crash!? BRILLIANT!! Her portrayal of Nikki has captivated audiences for thirty years on Y&R and she is soooo overdue for some accolades!! We love us some Nikki Newman, especially the one jack-knifed under Deacon’s toilet after a Vodka “Big Gulp” bender!!! Please writers, let Nikki be a devastated drunk a little while longer…. it’s endlessly entertaining!!! 🙂


Too painful to watch having been married to an alcoholic.

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 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.”
