As first noted on the Friday, August 16 episode of CBS' "The Young and the Restless," several of Katherine Chancellor's friends and family received postcards informing them to be at the grand dames home on that particular date and at "8:00pm sharp." Yesterday, following news of when the show will honor the life of Katherine on screen, the show unveiled a website dedicated to character that includes a gallery on the site that breaks down the postcards each of her friends and family received, some of which were sent before Katherine decided to have people gather at her home.

Using the Drupal content management platform, Prospect Park's The OnLine Network has revamped its TOLN.com website, which is the online home of "All My Children" and "One Life to Live." The new website was first released on Thursday, August 15, before TOLN officially announced its unveiling yesterday. Previously, TOLN.com was an internet hub that solely enabled online viewers of "AMC" and "OLTL" to watch the soaps outside of Hulu's website. Eventually, TOLN.com, along with AllMyChildren.com and OneLifetoLive.com were all re-directed to Hulu.com. On Friday, August 2, TOLN announced plans to revamp its website in order to provide a "New, User-Friendly Web Portal and App" experience for viewers. It's unknown when TOLN plans to launch the app, which it said will be available for Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android platforms and will include exclusive clips, interviews, behind-the-scenes footage from each series and provide access to full length episodes. The TOLN app will work on all iOS (3G and Retina Display) and Android devices.
As previously reported, CBS' "The Young and the Restless" will honor the life of Katherine Chancellor on Tuesday, September 3 and Wednesday, September 4, when the soap opera pays tribute to the character and her portrayer, Jeanne Cooper, in a two-part memorial service. Per a website dedicated to the character, Katherine died on Thursday, August 1 after a short illness. Cooper died on Wednesday, May 8, also from a brief illness. Fan favorites Lauralee Bell (Christine), Tricia Cast (Nina Webster), Beau Kazer (Brock Reynolds), Adrienne Frantz (Amber Moore), Patty Weaver (Gina Roma) and Michael Damian (Danny Romalotti) will return for the service along with Cooper's real-life son, Corbin Bernsen, who will reprise his role as Father Todd who presides over Katherine's service. Damian will perform “That's When I'll Stop Loving You,” the song that aired in the tribute episode dedicated to Cooper in May.

In what many fans have called the most confusing schedule in the history of daytime soap opera programming, OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network has adjusted the scheduling of "new to OWN" episodes of "All My Children" and "One Life to Live."
Things are getting even uglier in the dispute between CBS Corp. and Time Warner Cable (TWC), which has resulted in 13 CBS Owned & Operated TV stations in the eight markets covered by TWC, cable networks Showtime, The Movie Channel (TMC), Flix and Smithsonian, which are wholly or partly owned by CBS, to go dark. A CBS spokesperson has confirmed reports that CBS has blocked TWC subscribers from viewing CBS.com, which would enable those affected by the dispute with a different avenue to view their favorite CBS programs.
As Soap Opera Network first reported in mid-June, CNN's Jake Tapper ("The Lead with Jake Tapper") will be appearing on The OnLine Network's "All My Children," portraying the role of TV investigative reporter Spencer Phillips. Tapper was originally scheduled to appear on the Monday, August 19 episode (prior to the announcement that each weeks episodes would be released on Mondays), but TOLN announced today that his appearance has been moved up. He will now appear on one of the episodes scheduled for release on Monday, August 12 via Hulu, Hulu Plus, iTunes and iTunes Canada.
After failing to reach a new deal with Time Warner Cable (TWC) over retransmission fees, 13 CBS Owned & Operated TV stations in the eight markets covered by TWC, cable networks Showtime, The Movie Channel (TMC), Flix and Smithsonian, which are wholly or partly owned by CBS, are now dark. The networks and stations were dropped by the second largest cable provider in America effective 5:00 PM Eastern Time, which was the most recent deadline agreed to by both parties who have been embroiled in a retransmission dispute since failing to sign a new contract in late June as the old one was set to expire.
On Sunday, October 27, Michael Muhney (Adam Newman, "The Young and the Restless") will host "The 16th Annual L.A. Cancer Challenge" (LACC), which benefits the Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research. This marks the sixth time the actor has hosted the event. LACC is one of Southern California's largest and most popular charity races with thousands attending each year.
