(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — In a not so surprising development, SoapCentral.com is reporting that CBS’ “The Bold and the Beautiful” has dropped veteran actor Winsor Harmon (Thorne Forrester) to recurring status.

Harmon, who joined the cast of the drama series in December 1996, has had relatively nothing to do on the soap since his character’s relationship with Katherine Kelly Lang‘s Brooke Forrester fizzled some years back, which was expected as Brooke’s world always revolved around Thorne’s older brother Ridge Forrester (Ronn Moss) anyway.

Prior to joining the cast of “The Bold and the Beautiful,” Harmon enjoyed a successful run on the ABC soap “All My Children” as Del Henry, Dixie Cooney’s (Cady McClain) brother, from 1994-1995. The actor exited along-side Sarah Michelle Gellar, who originated the role of Kendall Hart, when she left the soap in order to pursue a career in primetime and movies. Gellar got her big break courtesy of a little show on The WB called “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.”

A “B&B” representative had “no comment” when questioned for this article.

    My View of Llanview: May 30 Edition

    Photo: Errol Lewis/SON

    Sunday, May 30, 2010 12:01 AM ET | By Scotty Gore

    (SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Like Momma always says “If you can’t say anything nice, then don’t say anything at all.”

    I’m sure some of you are expecting this column to lengthy, in depth, and opinion filled. If so, then I’m sorry but you’re mistaken. Two things are preventing me from making this particular edition of the column all of the things mentioned above. The first is a result of time constraints. I have a dozen things going on this holiday weekend, and I just simply don’t have the time to set down and compose a rather drawn out column. And second, even if I did, there is very, very little on the show right now that is even worth mentioning. And I would rather not get on my soapbox and rant and rave about how much “One Life to Live” stinks as of late. I’ve done more than enough negative columns about the show for awhile.

    So what that does leave for me to talk about then? Very little actually. But I will say this, things are NOT looking good as we head into the summer months in Llanview. Endless teen drama, a canvas overloaded with newbies, and veterans characters that are harder to find than Waldo. I realize that soaps have always played the teen card at the end of the school year, but that doesn’t excuse it. As for yet another new family, I say go ahead. Chance are it they will just fizzle out like nearly all the other new families in the past few years. Just look at the Evans’ and the Montez’s.

    And, as for the vets, Bo and Nora may be getting some airtime for their wedding, but I guarantee you that once they say “I do,” they will be shoved back into the attic with Renee, Shane, Charlie, and all the others, who are dusted off and pushed in from of the camera once in a blue moon. Clint seems to have gone the way of Marty and lost his focus. With Kim banished from Llanview (thanks to David), Nora with Bo, and things heating up between Viki, David, Charlie, and Dorian, poor ole Clint has no viable love interest and really no function outside of perhaps visiting with his daughters. That is much the same way Marty has been written for months. And poor Viki has no life of her own, and her only reason for living seems to be so she can prop Rex and Gigi and dispense advice to Jessica and Natalie.

    Getting back to the teens for a moment, the only ones I can really root for right now are Markko, and to a lesser extent Destiny and then Matthew. Of the three, Markko is my favorite. I also used to enjoy Langston as well until the writers turned the character into a moron. Lang-Lang totally deserves everything she is getting right now and more. And thankfully Markko knows the truth now about her and Ford. For awhile there, the poor guy was dumber than dirt about what was going on all around him. But now, Jason Tam, who is a remarkable actor by the way, is at last finally getting some juicy material that he can sink his teeth into. Markko is too good for Langston, who has become such an idiot that she has become oblivious to all of Ford’s lies. And speaking of Ford, I can’t stand this character. Apparently the powers that be at ABC and “One Life to Live” haven’t realized the fact yet that, just because someone is good looking, doesn’t mean they can act their way out of a paper bag. Just remember back to how horrid Mikey Jerome was if you don’t believe me.

    Finally, the demise of SOAPnet this week left “OLTL’s” fans even more concerned about the soap’s future, especially given a New York Times article that (apparently) inadvertently omitted “One Life to Live” when talking stating that “ABC remains committed to its soaps (“General Hospital,” “All My Children”), other broadcasters have been moving away from the genre, limiting the amount of product available for SOAPnet.” According to ABC Daytime God Brian Frons, the omission was the fault of the Times reporter, and that the network continues to stand by “OLTL” too. Really? Could have fooled me. Frankly, I have no idea why Frons appears to be so concerned about “One Life to Live” not being mentioned in the article, when he clearly doesn’t mind it being left out of other promos for the Alphabet Network’s daytime line-up. And he sure as hell doesn’t seem to care about what’s on the show itself, because if he did, “One Life” wouldn’t be at the bottom of the ratings, barely beating its cancelled competitor “As the World Turns.” But then again, according to that logic, he doesn’t really care about “AMC” and “GH” either, since neither regularly averages beating “OLTL” by more than one or two tenths of a point. Oh well, “One Life” will always remain the ugly red-headed step-child of ABC Daytime, sandwiched in between the baby and the first born. Some things will never change.

    Moving on, no one correctly guessed the identity of last time’s mystery “OLTL” guest star, which was “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” actor Nana Visitor. In 1982, she replaced Ilene Kristen in the role of scientist Georgina Whitman. Kristen, of course, returned to the show years later, and now plays Roxy Balsom.

    In case you missed the clues, here they are: This Llanview ‘Visitor’ took over the role of a engineer who came to town on a top-secret mission, and fell hard for a leading man. Although this woman didn’t last long in the role, the woman she replaced returned to town years later as an unrelated character. Perhaps the saying is true afterall…’hair’ today, gone tomorrow.

    Now it’s time to play another round of “Llanview, Who Am I?,” a new feature where you have to use the clues to figure out the identity of a mystery celebrity guest star from “OLTL’s” past. See if you can figure it out. Good luck!!!

    This former NBC News reporter was visited by a Llanview leading lady a decade ago, as a result of a particular illness that bonded the two women together. This guest star chronicled her illness in a book and helped her mother, who was battling terminal ovarian cancer, end her life. And, on a side note, her husband is a mathematician.

    So who is this mystery actress from the past? I’ll have the answer in the June 15th edition of My View of Llanview. Bonus points if you can tell me the name of the character that visited her. And don’t forget to check out my Twitter page for all the latest OLTL news and information at SON.

    Now, before I wrap up this column, I’m going to look into my crystal ball and give you a quick sneak peek at a few things coming up a few weeks down the road. These are for the week of June 21st. A finger is pointed. Two reunited old flames drift apart. A scorned lover confronts the man who broke her heart. A daddy gives a surprise kiss to someone unexpected. One young man snitches on another. A girl is asked to help do something shady. And someone is being framed.

    Well that’s concludes yet another edition of the column. Be sure to buckle up and drive safely if you are traveling on the roadways this Memorial Day weekend. A special thank you to the men and women (both past and present) who have fought to maintain our freedom. I also want to pay tribute to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice to protect our nation. Thank you all and God Bless!

    And until next time remember, we only have “One Life to Live”…

    (SoapOperaNetwork.com) — The year 2012 isn’t just the end of the Mayan calendar, it is the end of an era for soap operas as well.

    When SOAPnet launched on January 20, 2000, it was always assumed that it would be where many soaps would transition to as the broadcast networks decided that soaps no longer fit their brand. Unfortunately, on May 26, 2010, it was announced that that wouldn’t be the case for “All My Children,” “Days of our Lives,” “General Hospital,” “One Life to Live,” or “The Young and the Restless” as the network that airs same day episodes of each becomes no more. SOAPnet, which just achieved carriage in 75 million cable homes earlier this year, will be replaced by Disney Junior, the 3rd American iteration of the popular Disney Channel cable network, in 2012.

    Anne Sweeney, co-chair, Disney Media Networks and president, Disney/ABC Television Group, released a statement Wednesday stating that “SOAPnet was created in 2000 to give daytime viewers the ability to watch time-shifted soaps, before multiplatform viewing and DVRs were part of our vocabulary. But today, as technology and our businesses evolve, it makes more sense to align this distribution with a preschool channel that builds on the core strengths of our company.”

    Failure to Launch

    Since its creation 10 years ago, SOAPnet had been unable to achieve the great success its sister cable networks such as ABC Family and Disney XD had received after the two re-branded to cater to a more direct and mass appealing audience. Lifetime, which the Disney/ABC Television Group holds a 42.5% stake in (with Hearst Corporation holding another 42.5% and NBC Universal holding the remaining 15%), is already airing programming that would fit the typical audience suited for SOAPnet, that being Women 18-49. In order to compete, SOAPnet began airing acquired films from Sony Pictures Television in 2008 as part of its Sunday Night Movie programming block. This decision ultimately disbanded the “Days of our Lives” weekly marathon, which to this day is no longer part of the networks program schedule, thus leaving viewers with few opportunities to catch up on the soap. In 2009, SOAPnet began airing films from the Disney/ABC Television Group and 20th Century Fox Films in its hope to appeal to a more youthful audience in lieu of the networks acquisitions of such popular programs as “Gilmore Girls,” “The O.C.” and “One Tree Hill,” along with its already acquired rights to “Beverly Hills, 90210.” For many, this was the beginning of the end. While viewership seemed to grow with the networks expanded programming, which included the Canadian import “Being Erica,” the damage done to the networks image was irreversible. Fans, long critical of the network as a whole, saw no desire in watching a network that had so much promise only to see the ball drop right from under them with the lack of steady focus, which some attribute to the promotion of Brian Frons, President, Daytime, Disney/ABC Television Group, which in addition to overseeing the daily operations of SOAPnet included oversight of the ABC Television Network’s daytime programming – “All My Children,” “General Hospital,” “One Life to Live” and “The View.” In an interview with Soap Opera Digest, Frons made it clear that the folding of SOAPnet will have no direct effect on the ABC lineup. In fact, fans shouldn’t be worried at all about the lineup as the executive sees the decision as somewhat of a blessing.

    “They shouldn’t be worried. Over the years, Disney has made a lot of commitment to the Disney brand. As they looked out in the marketplace, they really felt they needed to be in the preschool space with a full-branded channel. Given the way technology has gone, where you can DVR your soap, watch it on Hulu and abc.com, it was felt that the original purpose of SOAPnet — today’s soaps tonight — could sort of be fulfilled in different ways. Frankly, financially it will be better for us, because if you watch on daytime, we actually make more money than if the same person watches on SOAPnet, just because rates are that different between the network world and the cable world.”

    While pushing aside SOAPnet’s purpose, which was not only “today’s soaps tonight,” but also a safe haven for longtime fans of soap operas as a whole that were looking for their own place in the overcrowded cable market, Frons and those in charge of SOAPnet failed to capitalize on who their audience was and what they wanted. Instead of going the cheap route with such reality series as “Bank of Mom and Dad,” “Southern Belles: Louisville” or “Greg Behrendt’s Wake Up Call,” they should have tried harder in producing original scripted series. Yes, the network did give us “General Hospital: Night Shift,” but there wasn’t anything that could be done with a show that was simply a mini-spinoff of mother ship “General Hospital” and a poor man’s imitation of “Port Charles.” While ABC Family, purchased by the Walt Disney Company in 2001, made major inroads in scripted programming in 2007 courtesy of supernatural series “Kyle XY” and again in 2008 with the series “The Secret Life of the American Teenager,” SOAPnet kept giving viewers more cheaply made acquired imported series such as “MVP” in addition to “Being Erica,” or old and canceled nighttime soaps as “Paper Dolls” and “The Monroe’s” along with the short-lived FOX drama “Skin.” Where was the true originality? It isn’t like the network couldn’t have found top talent (in front of and behind the scenes) from within its corporate cousins at ABC Studios or the Disney/ABC Television Group, which together have helped turn the ABC Television Network around with such hits as “Desperate Housewives” and “Grey’s Anatomy.”

    What Could They Do?

    Why not try and create a new daily scripted soap opera in the vein of MTV’s “Spyder Games?” Yes, the show was cheap and looked cheap, but it was a true guilty pleasure. The soap, which aired in telenovela format from June 2001 through September 2001, starred popular soap opera actresses Christina Chambers (ex-Marty Saybrooke, “One Life to Live”; ex-Maria Torres, “Sunset Beach”) and Shawn Batten (ex-Sara Cummings, “Sunset Beach”). Why not try your hand at original made-for-tv movies starring today’s top soap stars? Susan Lucci sure did wonders for ABC back in the early 1990′s. It has worked for Lifetime, ABC Family and Disney Channel. In fact, Lifetime’s original movie of the month library has done so well that it spawned another cable network in the form of the Lifetime Movie Network, which continues the Lifetime tradition by airing its own original movies, some of which have starred such daytime talent as Vanessa Marcil (ex-Brenda Barrett, “General Hospital”), Rachel Melvin (ex-Chelsea Brady, “Days of our Lives”) and Jamie Luner (Liza Colby, “All My Children”). Where are the re-runs to canceled soaps such as “Sunset Beach,” “Passions,” “Loving” or even “The City?” While MTV is going around promoting its reality-drama of the same name as television’s next big thing, you could have fought back and got audiences to remember there was a show with that name before MTV came out with theirs and it starred “General Hospital’s” Laura Wright (as Ally Alden), Lisa Lo Cicero (as Joselyn Roberts) and Jane Elliott (playing her “GH” character Tracey Quartermaine”), “All My Children’s” Darnell Williams (as Jacob Foster) and Debbi Morgan (playing her “AMC” character Angie Hubbard), “One Life to Live’s” Catherine Hickland (as Tess Wilder) and “The Young and the Restless’” Amelia Heinle (as Steffi Brewster) or even soap veteran Roscoe Born (as Nick Rivers). Before he became Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo on television’s most watched scripted series, CBS’ “NCIS,” Michael Weatherly appeared as Cooper Alden on both “Loving” and “The City.” Promoting his involvement in those soaps would have done wonders for ratings as fans of the actor could see him in a different light from that of his comical charms on “NCIS.” It sure would have been better than airing another edition of “They Started on Soaps,” which felt more like a history book of the celebrities who’ve made it big when they left a soap, and forgot their roots, than a recognition of the talent who made it big on soaps and went on to do bigger things without forgetting where they came from.

    What’s Next?

    Disney Junior. Good job SOAPnet, you have decreased your viewing age to 2-7 year olds. You got what you wanted.

      (SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Introducing the latest addition to the cast of “One Life to Live.”

      Soap Opera Network can now put a face with the name of the actor cast in the role of James, the younger brother of sleazy film producer Robert Ford. As we first told you yesterday, daytime newcomer Nicholas Robuck has joined the cast in the contract role. He will first air June 9th. Look for James to cross paths with Starr on several occasions, which will ultimately lead to a summer adventure for the pair, among others. And, from the look of his picture, it’s going to be a long, hot summer in Llanview (click here for a larger view).

      IN OTHER CASTING NEWS…

      Sean J. Cullen returns as Dr. Edward Levin on Friday, June 18th, when Jessica shares her fears with him about her altars and the recent attack on Ford.

      The Best Little Whorehouse in Llanview? The recent audition script for the dayplayer role of ‘Fawn’ (a hooker) comes into play the week of June 14th, when David tries to cheer up his little brother Matthew, who’s having some girl trouble, by taking him out on the town with the pole dancer and one of her friends.

      And “One Life to Live” has released a new casting call for the role of a “Private Investigator.” The scene opens with “Kate” asking the PI if he is looking for her. He tells her that her grandfather hired him to locate her. Kate replies that she had thought her grandpa understood that she just wanted to be left alone. The PI replies that he knows her grandfather, and realizes how considered he was when she stole a car from a dealership and drove off with some boy. Kate states that ditched the boy already. The PI asks if it was before or after she ran the car off the road, and says that he found it abandoned just down the road. Kate confesses that she was involved in an accident but that she’s ok. Relived he tells her that he can take her back to her grandfather then. However, Kate insists on going to her motel room first, much to his reluctance. Kate assures him that it won’t take long, and that, even though he has been working for the family for a long time, she thinks it time they get to know each other a little better. The PI replies that if her grandfather found out, he could kill him. As the scene ends, Kate tells him that he won’t find out unless he hires a PI to track his every more like her grandfather did with her. Remember that the soap frequently changes names in this scripts in an attempt to throw off viewers.
