Out of the 26 series that ABC had in development for the 2014-2015 television season, the network has given orders to 14 of them. Eight dramas and six comedies. The new series joining ABC's recently renewed veterans include dramas "American Crime," "Forever," "How to Get Away With Murder," ""Marvel's Agent Carter," "Secrets & Lies," "The Astronaut Wives Club," "The Club" and "The Whispers," and comedies "Black-ish," "Cristela," "Fresh Off the Boat," "Galavant," "Manhattan Love Story" and "Selfie."
After renewing a slew of its comedies and dramas, ABC announced that it has also renewed "Nashville" for a third season and "Last Man Standing" for a fourth season. The pickups of both series concludes ABC's renewals for the 2014-2015 television season. The network will formally announce its slate of new and returning series on Tuesday, May 13 during its upfront presentation at Lincoln Center.
On today's episode of ABC's "General Hospital," the tradition of the Nurses Ball continues with yet another male stripstease. Like last year, Milo (Drew Cheetwood) once again led some of the show's hottest men, or "Magic Milo and the Magic Wands" as Lucy (Lynn Herring) excitedly referred them as, in a dance routine choreographed to AC/DC's "You Shook Me All Night Long." While there was some stiff competition amongst the characters in terms of who had the better stripper pose, the ladies in attendance sure had a good time either way as evidenced by Felicia (Kristina Wagner) chanting, "What a waist. What a chest. What an ass," after an annoyed Levi (Zachary Garred) commented, "This is so tacky. Does a charity really need this? What a waste."
ABC has renewed dramas "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," "Castle," "Grey's Anatomy," "Once Upon a Time," "Resurrection," "Revenge" and "Scandal," while also picking up comedies "The Goldbergs," "The Middle," and "Modern Family" for the 2014-2015 television season. The network has yet to decide the fates of drama "Nashville" and comedy "Last Man Standing," although the likelihood of both series returning remains strong.

Just before learning he was once again nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for his role as Liam Spencer on CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful," actor Scott Clifton took time out of his busy day to speak with Soap Opera Network about a topic that he is very passionate about: Animals. Although Clifton was battling pneumonia at the time of our discussion, his passion for those animals desperately in need of the love and companionship that one can bring helped him push forward as he provided details on how the storyline featuring the Los Angeles Animal Shelter came about, the behind the scenes reality surrounding Liam's gift to girlfriend Hope Logan (Kim Matula), and how he went from a dog person to a cat person.

Last week when news broke that actor James Scott had completed filming his 8-year run on NBC's "Days of our Lives" as EJ DiMera, fans couldn't help but wonder if that meant the end of the road for the popular character, or if there were plans to recast, considering the actor himself cited "personal time" as the reason for his departure.
On Saturday, May 17, "General Hospital's" Kimberly McCullough (ex-Robin Scorpio) will be hosting two fan events on the east coast - one in the morning and one in the evening.

On Thursday, May 1, nominations for the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards were announced, and "Days of our Lives" star Eric Martsolf (Brady Black) received the happy news that he'd received his first ever nomination, although in the most unusual of ways. "I had forgotten that they were announcing it. I had an early call time and I'm in the shower at 6:00 AM," the actor recalls of the time news began rolling in. "I get out and my phone's just going nuts. There I am soaking wet standing there in the bathroom. I look at my Twitter, and sure enough, I found out through some fan," Martsolf states with a chuckle while nonchalantly apologizing for the visual. For reference, "The tweet read, 'Congratulations on your Emmy nomination, Eric Martsolf' and that's how I found out."
It was one year ago this month when word broke that actress Camryn Grimes would be returning to CBS' "The Young and the Restless" after previously portraying the beloved Cassie Newman on the soap from 1997-2005, when the character was killed off following a horrific car accident, and on a less frequent basis as the ghost of Cassie from that point through and up to 2010.
CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" celebrated its 27th anniversary last month, which happened to coincide with yet another international trip - Dubai and Abu Dhabi. But it is the show's principle Southern California setting that has truly helped the series shine after all these years. Beginning today, has launched "The Bold and the Beautiful On Location,” a new interactive feature that gives fans a virtual tour to 22 locations throughout Southern California, where the daytime soap has filmed some of its most memorable scenes.

After her daughter died last year as a result of a hit-and-run, a desperate Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson) will attempt everything in her power to have another child with Billy Abbott (David Tom), even going so far as to drug and "seduce" the married man into having sex with her. The question is, is it a "sinful seduction" or an outright rape? In a newly released promo for next week's episodes of CBS' "The Young and the Restless," the series calls what Chloe is doing to get her hands on Billy's crown jewels (pun intended) as a sinful seduction, but visually it's clear that Billy isn't even conscious for Chloe's plan. Meanwhile, Billy is also unknowingly already dealing with another set of baby drama. It turns out that his wife, Victoria (Amelia Heinle), is pregnant! The only problem is that it could be Billy's, or it could be Stitch's (Sean Carrigan). As for Ian Ward (Ray Wise), he better not get in the way of his son Dylan (Steve Burton) when it comes to the woman he loves, or he'll end up paying the ultimate price.
