Ratings Report for the Week of October 7-11, 2013
It’s incontrovertible that “Days of our Lives” James Scott (EJ DiMera) is drop dead gorgeous. He has an impressive 6-foot-something stature, model good looks, a smooth British accent, perfectly polished style and... scrapes all over his hands. (Record scratch.) Yes, when the English native recently sat down with Soap Opera Network for an exclusive interview, he had numerous red scratches marring his otherwise perfect digits. And suddenly, he was all the sexier. Especially when he quipped of the wounds: “Oh, I did a love scene with Alison [Sweeney, Sami] yesterday.”
As we previously reported, a few stars from “The Young and the Restless” are slated to make appearances on CBS’s popular game show, “The Price Is Right,” and next week’s schedule featuring two of the soap’s stars has been released!
It’s been a whopping 24 years since Elizabeth Dennehy graced the daytime stage as “Guiding Light’s” Christina ‘Blake’ Thorpe Marler, and she’s finally ready to get back into soap operas. But this time, she’s headed to “The Young and the Restless’” Genoa City!
It’s not hard to laugh, but across the board, daytime stars agree that it’s not easy to be funny! That being said, some of the industry’s most popular talent — “The Price Is Right’s” Drew Carey, “Let’s Make a Deal’s” Wayne Brady, and “The Talk’s” Aisha Tyler and Sheryl Underwood — certainly make it look easy to be hilarious day in and day out. Noticing the top-notch humor present in their daytime lineup, CBS decided to gather those said stars together at Hollywood’s legendary venue, The Comedy Store, to perform an evening of standup comedy benefitting a cancer charity. The result: CBS Daytime After Dark, Stand Up to Cancer — a fun event definitely worth smiling about!
