ALL THINGS RELATED

The SAG-AFTRA National Board announced today that it has reached a tentative agreement with broadcast networks ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX, among other producers, on terms for a successor agreement to the National Code of Fair Practice for Network Television Broadcasting (Network Television Code). The agreement, approved by a 93% vote by the board, covers dramas in first-run syndication, morning news shows, talk shows, serials (soap operas), variety, reality, contest, sports and promotional announcements.
As if being the most watched daytime drama series for more than 25 years wasn't enough, CBS Daytime's "The Young and the Restless" has placed fifth on Bing's Top TV Show Searches for 2014, just behind TV's hottest primetime series, AMC's "The Walking Dead." "Y&R" beat out the likes of E!'s now defunct "Chelsea Lately" (#6), NBC's "The Today Show" (#7), HBO's "Game of Thrones" (#8), ABC's "The View" (#9) and FOX's "American Idol" (#10).
Antonio Sabato Jr. (ex-Dante Damiano, “The Bold and the Beautiful;” ex-Jagger Cates, “General Hospital”) has just recently been announced as a contestant on the 19th season of ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars,” but that’s not all that’s been keeping the former “Melrose Place” actor busy: He also has a brand new syndicated home improvement show debuting next week!
Season 19 of ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” will be hot, hot, hot! This season’s cast was announced today, and in addition to the many well-known celebs putting their hat in the ring for the popular mirror ball award are two former soap stars who will be hitting the dance floor, as well!
For weeks gossip sites and celebrity magazines have been left wondering if former "Guiding Light" star Hayden Panettiere was indeed pregnant after pictures of the "Nashville" actress surfaced with what would appear to be a baby bump. As part of the social phenomenon known as the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, Panettiere put those pregnancy rumors to rest while challenging her unborn child to take part.
Just one day after revealing he would be returning to ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" for its 19th season as a pro dancer on "Good Morning America," the network announced that Derek Hough will also be joining the cast of "Nashville" for a multi-episode story arc. Hough will portray Noah West, a beguiling and disarming movie star who crosses paths with the Nashville elite following his being cast as the lead in a biopic of a famous country music star.
