After conducting interviews with several of today's top talents and filing special assignment reports for the newsmagazine on multiple occassions over the past year, CBS Television Distributions's "Entertainment Tonight" officially announced today the hiring of "All My Children" alum Cameron Mathison (ex-Ryan Lavery) as its new weekend co-anchor and a full-time correspondent. He will also serve as a fill-in anchor for the weekday telecast, hosted by Nancy O’Dell and Kevin Frazier.
When history is re-created to tell a new tale on a daytime soap opera some of us can't help but groan at the mere thought, especially when history is mined by use of re-created flashback scenes. Sure, we love that stories continue day-to-day, but ultimately we don't expect it to truly have much impact in today's storied world. As "General Hospital" celebrated its 52nd anniversary earlier today, with re-created flashback scenes with several of its current cast playing yesterday's important characters, one can't help but be amazed at how far we've come in our quest for drama on screen, be it scripted or reality. The lack of shootouts, sex scenes, romantic triangles, catfights, or whatever passes for drama today, took a back seat to character driven story.
Nominees for the 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards in select categories were announced earlier today on CBS' "The Talk." All in ABC's "General Hospital" is leading the pack with 28 nominations. "The Young and the Restless" is right behind with 25 nominations followed by "The Bold and the Beautiful" with 19 noms and "Days of our Lives" with 16.

In life you set goals for yourself, or at least you try to. You even have expectations for yourself that you hope will eventually get fulfilled. In my case, over the years I had set a specific list of goals that included certain expectations as they related to one another. Earlier this year, I officially crossed one of the major things off that list. It wasn't easy as it had plagued me for nearly a decade. A stepping stone you might call it. I took up something many years ago that eventually became impossible to maintain on a full-time basis. I decided to do it part-time. I went from part-time to being very part-time. Later you could say I dropped it completely in order to concentrate on the things that either gave me personal joy and fulfillment (this site) or put several well earned dollars in my pocket. I imagine I'm not the only one out there who's ever had pull some sort of double duty in their lifetime. Right?
Earlier today a tweet went out over claims that the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences and Pop, which will broadcast the 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards next month, were looking to have soap fans on hand to sit in bleachers that would be made available to the public on the red carpet. There were alleged claims, however, that the two parties was only seeking to include fans under the age of 45 to sit in said bleacher seats. NATAS and Pop have now issued statements that put clarification on the situation.
