When CBS announced earlier this year that it had picked up a new drama series from Vince Gilligan (“Breaking Bad”) and David Shore (“House”), and that it would star former "All My Children" actor Josh Duhamel (ex-Leo du Pres), "Guiding Light's" Aubrey Dollar (ex-Marina Cooper) and Dean Winters ("Oz," "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit"), the network would only say that the series, "Battle Creek," would air sometime in midseason. Last week the network announced that the series will air on Sundays at 10:00 PM ET/PT, beginning March 1. The series replaces "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," which currently occupies the timeslot and will air its season finale two weeks prior to the launch of "Battle Creek."
As previously reported, former "Days of our Lives" actor Casey Deidrick (ex-Chad DiMera) will be starring in the new MTV series, "Eye Candy," a drama centering on a 21-year-old tech genius named Lindy, played by Victoria Justice, who is a hacker with a gift for seeing clues and connections in the digital world that others can't. Deidrick will play the role of Tommy when the series premieres Monday, January 12 at 10:00 PM ET/PT on MTV.
You met the three finalists for the next male model search currently underway at CBS' "The Price is Right," via their appearance on the Monday, December 1 edition of CBS' "The Talk," but what does the game show's first male model, Robert Scott Wilson (Ben Ridgeway, "Days of our Lives"; ex-Pete Cortlandt, "All My Children") have to say about another person taking on his former daytime role? The actor recently spoke with Soap Opera Network about his experience on the game show, what it was like helping judge the competition, and responds to comments made about him by "Price is Right" executive producer, Mike Richards.
Previously appearing in episodes of TV Land's "Hot in Cleveland," former "All My Children" star Cameron Mathison (ex-Ryan Lavery) will appear in tonight's episode of the network's "The Exes," starring Donald Faison, Wayne Knight, and David Alan Basche. In the episode, entitled "Oh Brother Here Art Thou," Mathison plays Rob, who shows up unexpectedly at his brother Haskell's (Knight) apartment. Not ready for a surprise from his brother, however, Haskell shows Rob the door and then proclaims to his roommates that his brother ruined his life.

While Bravo's "The Real Housewives" reality franchise has always been considered an unscripted soap, tonight marks the first time a current soap star will be seen as a regular when "The Young and the Restless" and "Days of our Lives" actress Eileen Davidson joins the group of women in "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills."

It seems like forever ago since we reported Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane, "All My Children") got a wonderful surprise while visiting NBCUniversal's syndicated daytime talker, "The Meredith Vieira Show," via a reunion of sorts with former "AMC" co-star, Walt Willey (ex-Jackson Montgomery). In your first look at the episode, airing Tuesday, December 2, Lucci tells host Meredith Vieira how her character on the ABC Daytime soap opera helped many immigrants learn to speak English. Later the two take part in a Soap Opera Showdown, which included Willey as a surprise participant alongside Lucci.

It's "General Hospital" like you've never seen before when Nancy Lee Grahn, who plays Alexis Davis on the soap, takes viewers behind the scenes of daytime's most dynamic soap opera via her new ABC.com series, "General Hospital Now," which the actress had been teasing on social media for several weeks.

An odd question for sure, but while on his book tour promoting his newest title, "The Andy Cohen Diaries: A Deep Look at a Shallow Year," Bravo TV executive and "Watch What Happens Live" host Andy Cohen was recently posed the question, "If Susan Lucci [ex-Erica Kane, 'All My Children'] showed up at your door naked, what would you do?" For reference: He'd give her a robe!
