In its newest issue, Soap Opera Digest shed some light on Mark Collier‘s new role on NBC’s “Days of our Lives.” The actor, who debuts on the Wednesday, December 18 episode, is portraying Liam, who Adrienne Kiriakis (Judi Evans) sets up on a date with Jennifer Horton (Melissa Reeves). “I knew his first name was Liam, but not much more than that. He went to high school in Salem,” shares the actor who began filming in August. Ironically, with Collier now on board, the “DAYS” cast now includes the first two actors who portrayed “As The World Turns’” Mike Kasnoff (Collier played the character from 2002-2007; Shawn Christian [Daniel Jonas] originated the role in 1994).

Each week Soap Opera Network publishes ratings reports that break down the highs and lows of the four remaining daytime soap operas – “The Bold and the Beautiful,” “Days of our Lives,” “General Hospital” and “The Young and the Restless” – in total viewers and the all important key women sales demos (Women 18-34, Women 18-49 and Women 25-54). Today, with both ABC and CBS noting the success of “GH” and “Y&R,” respectively, TheWrap has published a piece entitled, “If Soaps Are ‘Dead,’ Why Are Their Audiences Growing?” In its report, the publication notes that each of the soaps are up season-to-date in all key ratings categories. Meanwhile, some of the replacements for the canceled ABC versions of  “All My Children” and “One Life to Live,” specifically talk shows, have all “come and gone like, um, sands through the hourglass.”

Meanwhile, Deadline Hollywood published a piece on the renewed success of “GH” and how it overtook “Y&R” to rank number one for the week in Women 25-54 for the first time in over six years.

Like “As The World Turns,” “Days of our Lives,” “General Hospital” and “Guiding Light” before it, producers of CBS’ “The Bold and the Beautiful” have announced a new partnership with Pan Macmillan and its digital-first imprint, Momentum,  in which the publishing company will release a series of novellas surrounding several characters from “B&B.”

The titles, beginning with Forbidden Affair by Amy Andrews and Collision Course by Shannon Curtis, will be released simultaneously in print via Pan Macmillan and digitally via Momentum and will recount new love stories created through collaboration between authors of each novella and “B&B” executive producer and head writer, Bradley P. Bell.

UPDATE 10:01 PM ET: Carnes just tweeted, “Ah, Port Charles, it is!”

While hints of a possible return to “General Hospital” began on his Twitter page last week, where he referred to numerous Ports in the world (Portlandia, Port Hueneme, Port of Los Angeles, Port of Long Beach), an ABC representative confirms to Soap Opera Network that actor Ryan Carnes will be reprising his role as Lucas Jones, the adopted son of Bobbie (Jacklyn Zeman) and Tony Jones (Brad Maule), on the ABC Daytime drama series. “Like a ship lost in the night at sea, wondering where my next port will be…,” Carnes tweeted on Wednesday, December 4.

Thaao Penghlis (ex-Tony DiMera, “Days of our Lives”) is set to reprise his role as Victor Cassadine on ABC’s “General Hospital” in the new year, confirms a show representative to Soap Opera Network. The actor last played the role more than 30 years ago, when the character met his supposed death, but with the actor returning does that mean that the brother of Anthony and Mikkos Cassadine is in fact alive? You’ll just have to tune in to find out during the all important February sweeps ratings period!

Soap Opera Digest, which first reported the news, states that Penghlis is tentatively scheduled to first air on Thursday, January 30, 2014 – the first day of February sweeps.
