After fifteen years of working in various positions on the "One Life to Live" writing staff, including serving as the show's head scribe for the last three years, ABC has announced that Ron Carlivati will be joining "General Hospital" as a script writer. The move will fulfill the remainder of the three-year contract Carlivati signed with the network last September. A similar two-year deal was hammered out at the time with "One Life" Executive Producer Frank Valentini.
Francisco San Martin is the next actor out at NBC's "Days of our Lives" as another week comes to a close where blood is spilled at the fledgling daytime drama series. The actor tweeted the news to fans before the show could make it official.
With the news that "Days of our Lives" has let Gary Tomlin go as co-executive producer and Soap Opera Network unable to confirm who is replacing him at this time, rumors began swirling that actor Mark Hapka would be returning to the daytime drama series just days after reportedly stating that someone in particular (possibly Tomlin) was in the way of his employment with the show.
After a week of unconfirmed (by the show) firings of numerous actors, NBC's "Days of our Lives" has now fired its co-executive producer, Gary Tomlin. The news was first reported by TV Guide Canada's Nelson Branco on Twitter. News of Tomlin's firing comes on the heals of last months firing of head writer Dena Higley and the recent firings of actors Crystal Chappell (Carly Manning), Louise Sorel (Vivian Alamain), Bren Foster (Quinn Hudson), Nadia Bjorlin (Chloe Lane), and Tamara Braun (Taylor Walker).

On Monday, May 23, three days after news broke that Ingo Rademacher (Jasper 'Jax' Jacks) had been fired by ABC's "General Hospital," Soap Opera Network tweeted that we had exclusively learned that Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo (Brenda Barrett Corinthos) would be the next actor leaving the daytime drama series. On Thursday, May 26, just before the long Memorial Day Weekend, the actress confirmed our report when she revealed that her days with the soap were numbered via her Twitter page. Interestingly, the actress has been tweeting up a storm since revealing the news while keeping mum for nearly 3 months on her twitter account (it had previously been crickets since February of this year). Marcil Giovinazzo's confirmation follows months of rumors since she revealed in an interview with Access Hollywood Live back in March that she was on her way out.

After news broke today that ABC would be bumping "General Hospital" from its long time 3:00 PM ET/2:00 PM PT timeslot beginning in September 2012 in favor of a new Katie Couric talk show, the network was forced to calm the nerves of fans who are still reeling from the cancellations of "All My Children" and "One Life to Live." Unfortunately, the network is just delaying the inevitable to placate fans from believing that their favorite soap could be next.
(SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- While "The Chew" and "The Revolution" have yet to debut nor have "All My Children" or "One Life to Live" even taped their last episodes, the ABC Television Network is already making moves with its fall 2012 daytime schedule. The network announced today plans to launch a Katie Couric hosted syndicated daytime talk show which provides the failed evening news host with a hefty $20 million a year salary plus ownership of her program and reunites her with failed network executive and CEO Jeff Zucker, who will be an executive producer with Couric on the yet-to-be-named series...
