On Saturday, November 24, Lifetime will premiere its new holiday film "The March Sisters at Christmas," a modern retelling of Louisa Mae Alcott’s "Little Women," which stars Julie Marie Berman ("General Hospital") as Jo March, one of four sisters who learn that their mother is planning on selling their family home, Orchard House, due to the family not being able to keep up with the extensive repairs the house needs. Sisters Amy (Molly Kunz), Meg (Kaitlin Doubleday) and Beth (Melissa Farman) join Jo in helping restore their family home to its former glory before their mother's deadline to sell (after Christmas of course!) fast approaches.
Michael Nader ("All My Children"), Matt Cedeno ("Days of our Lives"), Jade Harlow ("Passions"), Roark Critchlow ("Days of our Lives"), Bruce Michael Hall ("Passions") and Kelly Ripa ("All My Children") are just a few of daytime's brightest soap stars of recent past, and they have come together for volume 2 of "Soap Sessions Merry Download," a compilation holiday CD where some of your favorite stars sing (or speak) some of your favorite holiday classics.
On Saturday, November 17, 2012, Gene Bua ("Somerset," "Love of Life" and "How To Survive a Marriage") passed away after battling Parkinson's disease for the past 13 years according to a posting on the actor and his wife Toni's website Bua Acting for Life. "The great Master Teacher and my hero and Lion King for 47 years, Gene Bua, passed into the Light on Sat. Nov. 17th at 1:40, after battling 13 years of Parkinson's and yet still going on to teach, write songs, be a mighty friend, and enjoy much of his life. I am surrounded by his power, love and radiance as I walk through these coming days with as much Grace as God will allow me. Very much love to you all," said Mrs. Bua of her husband on the website.
Stephen Colbert is a news junkie, but he's also a soap fan as evidenced by numerous skits and jokes he makes in reference to them. The recent sex scandal plaguing Washington, D.C. is no different as the host of Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report" told the tale of the soap opera that is "General's Hospital," referencing the ABC soap "General Hospital" in name and even logo. With a cameo appearance by "All My Children" star Susan Lucci, the skit will likely soon become legen - wait for it - dary, in the words of "How I Met Your Mother's" Barney Stinson (Neil Patrick Harris).

On Friday, November 23, which just happens to be the day after Thanksgiving, former "One Life to Live" star Nic Robuck takes on his dark side as the star of Lifetime Movie Network's world premiere movie "Dark Desire."
"I wish she'd tell me what she was thinking" are the first spoken words in the teaser trailer for the upcoming  film "On Air" by Paos Revolution, a new production company formed by Jordi Vilasuso ("All My Children," "Guidiing Light") and acting coaches from "AMC" and "General Hospital." The film will tell the fictionalized story of life after a popular soap opera gets canceled and how the stars of the program are forced to move on.
Although it wasn't listed with the other "Hot" stuff in TV Guide Magazine's Annual "Hot List" issue (pages 16-35), "General Hospital" did earn a spot under Michael Logan's Daytime Highlights column (page 84) under the heading "Hot Again." NBC's "Days of our Lives" also made the cut under the heading "Hot Days, Hotter Nights" courtesy of daytime's hottest (and only) gay on screen couple, Will Horton (Chandler Massey) and Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith).
Frank Valentini (Executive Producer, "General Hospital") is promising that the Monday, August 27 episode of the drama series is "not to be missed" as the series has "been keeping a huge surprise under wraps." The producer tweeted the message to his 12,000 followers earlier today.
Alicia Minshew (ex-Kendall Hart Slater, "All My Children") is currently off filming her new movie, "Desires of the Heart" in Savannah, GA and now Soap Opera Network is happy to report the film has unveiled its Facebook page for fans to take a look at the journey to making the film.
Although "Good Afternoon America" showed some gains over the recent performance of ratings eyesore "The Revolution," those gains could only last so long. The ABC News daytime talk show hosted by "Good Morning America's" Lara Spencer and Josh Elliott has also failed to bring in an audience on par with the year-ago airings of the canceled "One Life to Live" after five weeks of ratings data (week of August 6-10, 2012).
A number of syndicated programs hit their season lows during the week of July 30, 2012 thanks to the Olympics on NBC, while others were so heavily preempted that Nielsen Media Research excluded them from the weekly ratings averages, which was the case for Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution's (WBDTD)' "Anderson," "Ellen" and "Extra," and CBS Television Distribution's (CTD) "Rachael Ray" and "The Doctors." In the case of daytime talker "Live! with Kelly," however, the show hit its lowest ratings in more than 20 years.
