On the Friday, February 19 edition of ABC's "Shark Tank," former soap star Sarah Buxton (ex-Morgan DeWitt, "The Bold and the Beautiful"; ex-Annie Douglas Richards, "Sunset Beach") will appear as she tries to get the sharks -- Mark Cuban, Lori Greiner, Barbara Corcoran, Robert Herjavec and Kevin O’Leary -- to make a deal over her one-piece swimsuit line that not only keeps things in the right places, but can keep you sun-safe and stylish at the same time.

After starting out the 2015-16 television season dead last in Women 18-49 rating and nearly at the bottom in Women 25-54, the key sales demos that determine advertising rates for daytime programming, ABC's "The View" has been turning things around of late with solid gains against competing "The Talk" in both Total Viewers and Women 18-49. The talk show remains behind the CBS gabfest in Women 25-54, however.
CBS Daytime
CBS Daytime is showing across the board ratings growth compared to one week prior and the same week last year, according to newly released Nielsen Media Research ratings data for the week of February 8-12, 2016. The network held the top six programs in Total Viewers and the top four in both Women 25-54 and Women 18-49, the key sales demos that determine ad rates for daytime programs. The network remains the industry leader throughout the February Sweeps ratings period that began Thursday, February 4.
Dancing With the Stars
“Good Morning America” is set to reveal the new “Dancing with the Stars” cast live on Tuesday, March 8, between 7 am and 9 am, on ABC. Over the years the competition series has featured an array of daytime stars, most memorably first season champ Kelly Monaco (Sam McCall, "General Hospital"). Might a soap star past or present be in the mix this time around?
Vivian Jovanni
"Days of our Lives" viewers were stunned, this week, when Bo (Peter Reckell) and Hope's (Kristian Alfonso) only daughter, Ciara (Vivian Jovanni) was raped at the hands of her step brother Chase (Jonathon McClendon). Sure, the young teen seemed a bit off and moody, but nobody suspected he could ever be capable of such violence, especially against someone he claimed to truly care about like Ciara. 
Michael Easton
While it's still uncertain as to who Michael Easton will be portraying when he returns to the "General Hospital" canvas in the coming weeks, the actor recently announced on his Facebook page that you'll soon be able to catch his new short-film, "Dreamliner," which reunites him with his former "One Life to Live" co-star Trevor St. John (ex-Todd Manning/ex-Victor Lord, JR). Easton wrote and directed the short.
Rick Springfield
Rick Springfield rocks on! The former "General Hospital" star, remembered as Dr. Noah Drake, releases new album, Rocket Science, on February 19. It's Springfield's 18th studio LP and was written largely with his longtime collaborator and former bass player Matt Bissonette.
