The OnLine Network released the following breakdown showing how popular “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” were during their debut week on Hulu and iTunes.
As Senior Vice President of CBS Daytime, Angelica McDaniel is ultimately responsible for the daily operation of television’s most popular daily lineup consisting of “The Bold and the Beautiful,” “Let’s Make a Deal,” “The Price is Right,” “The Talk” and “The Young and the Restless.” A few weeks ago, Soap Opera Network had the opportunity of speaking with McDaniel about her diverse lineup filled with soap operas, game shows and talk shows.
After being released from the hospital this past weekend, Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor, “The Young and the Restless”) was sadly readmitted on Wednesday. With posts on Facebook, Cooper’s son, Corbin Bernsen, has been keeping friends and fans all around the world up-to-date on his mom’s current condition and things aren’t looking good. The actor said in one of his recent postings, “Please know that I’m not saying my mother’s life has ended, it hasn’t, but no matter how you slice it, she is in the final stages, whether it lasts an hour, day, month or years. I had to say ‘goodbye’ to her tonight ‘just in case’ as I’m traveling tomorrow to Vancouver for ‘Psych.’”
As we previously reported, Paos Revolution, the production company headed by “All My Children’s” Jordi Vilasuso (Griffin Castillo), has begun production on a new web series called ‘Perfect Day,” and while both the company and Vilasuso himself are in high gear prepping for the show’s launch, there’s a way for you to help make the dream come true!
Katherine Kelly Lang has been front and center as “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Brooke Logan since 1987, and in a moment that feels like it should have happened years ago, she has finally been nominated for her very first Daytime Entertainment Emmy Award! And when reporters met the beloved actress on set hours after executive producer and headwriter Bradley Bell woke her with the exciting news, Lang’s glow was very much still evident.
Two writers from “The Young and The Restless” were given the axe.
There’s no doubt that “The Young and the Restless’” Michael Muhney (Adam Newman) is honored to have been nominated for Outstanding Leading Actor for this year’s Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards, but believe it or not, he’ll actually be rather upset if he takes home the coveted award come ceremony night!
“I’ve had the luxury of seeing the Lead Actress and the Lead Actors’ reels, and if I’m going to be as honest as I’ve purportedly been since I joined the show… then I would have to, from this point forward, shout from the rooftops that Jason Thompson [Patrick Drake, “General Hospital”] deserves the award,” Muhney admits. “If you watched his performance, and what he did, and the story, how it was so perfectly teed up for a great, brilliantly layered performance by him, there should be an eight out of a 10 chance that he takes this home… So I don’t think I should win. It wouldn’t be fair to Jason.”
On Wednesday, May 1, Daniel Goddard announced that he’ll be appearing in an upcoming episode of CBS’ “The Price is Right.” The actor, who portrays Cane Ashby on “The Young and the Restless,” said in a tweet, “Taping #TPIR today with Gwen, Manuela and Amber .. #ChicksWithAttitude #CWA @CBSdaytime @official_yandr.” The tweet was accompanied by a link to a post on his Facebook page, which showed the beautiful ladies on the set of “TPIR” while they weren’t filming.
CBS Daytime’s “The Bold and the Beautiful” received 15 Daytime Emmy Award nominations this year, and the show’s executive producer and headwriter, Bradley P. Bell, couldn’t be more thrilled. “We’re determined to redefine the genre with our look, with our pacing, with our stories, with our location shoots,” he says of how the show’s entire team is to thank for the Emmy considerations. “We really want to make it a daily drama, and we’re not looking back. We’re only looking forward, and I think that strategy has paid off for us.”
Daytime newcomer Casey Moss has joined the cast of NBC’s “Days of our Lives,” per a tweet by Salem newbie Jen Lilley. In her tweet, the actress said, “Oh snap! My hott co-star joined Twitter! Be sure to follow
@1CaseyMoss and watch his first episode of #Days Friday!” The tweet was accompanied by an image of the two in the “DAYS” hair and makeup room hugging. Moss thanked Lilley with a tweet back that said, “Thanks Jen! I appreciate it!”
