With the returns of Roger Howarth, Kristen Alderson and Michael Easton (as new characters whose names are currently unconfirmed by ABC, although at present we’re hearing the character name “Jordan” for Alderson) to the Port Charles canvas and the debut of Maura West as Ava Jerome (first airdate scheduled for Wednesday, May 8), the drama is only getting hotter on ABC’s “General Hospital” this week.

When “One Life to Live” went off the air just over a year ago it was my favorite daily drama and it had been for quite some time. So, while the show’s ratings were rising, it was quite a shock to learn it had been canceled in 2011. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous with the series coming back, but this time without executive producer Frank Valentini and head writer Ron Carlivati.
There’s no doubt that “The Young and the Restless’” Michael Muhney (Adam Newman) is honored to have been nominated for Outstanding Leading Actor for this year’s Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards, but believe it or not, he’ll actually be rather upset if he takes home the coveted award come ceremony night!
“I’ve had the luxury of seeing the Lead Actress and the Lead Actors’ reels, and if I’m going to be as honest as I’ve purportedly been since I joined the show… then I would have to, from this point forward, shout from the rooftops that Jason Thompson [Patrick Drake, “General Hospital”] deserves the award,” Muhney admits. “If you watched his performance, and what he did, and the story, how it was so perfectly teed up for a great, brilliantly layered performance by him, there should be an eight out of a 10 chance that he takes this home… So I don’t think I should win. It wouldn’t be fair to Jason.”
Sunday, June 23 can’t come fast enough, because that’s when “All My Children” fans are going to go gaga over Susan Lucci‘s (ex-Erica Kane) debut as Genevieve Delatour on Lifetime’s “Devious Maids”! The dramady, which was dreamed up by “Desperate Housewives” creator, Marc Cherry, and is executive produced by “Housewives” star Eva Longoria (ex-Isabella Williams, “The Young and the Restless”), is already making waves as a can’t-miss hit. And luckily, Entertainment Tonight has released a first look at the maids who will no doubt be causing La Lucci loads of trouble!
While CBS has the most nominations amongst all television networks, the Disney/ABC Television Group is the most honored programming group with nominations for the ABC Television Network, Disney Channel, Disney XD, Syndicated programming, and more. The television arm of The Walt Disney Company highlights their nominations below:
As previously reported, the ’40th Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards’ were announced earlier today on “Good Morning America.” While not all categories were released during the ABC broadcast, the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences has since revealed that CBS leads all broadcast and cable networks with a total of 50 nominations in multiple categories with PBS in second place with 44 and ABC third with 38.
After months of anticipation, The National Academy of Television, Arts & Sciences has announced the 40th Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy Award nominations! So without further adieu, let’s get down to the list, which features some of your absolute very favorites in the running for the coveted golden statue!
It’s been nearly two years since Erin Chambers last appeared as “General Hospital’s” Siobhan McKenna, and it looks like the actress (who also played “Days of our Lives” Lacey Hansen) is headed back to soap, this time on “The Young and the Restless”!
A rep for the sudser confirms that the actress, who begins taping tomorrow, Wednesday, May 1, has joined the show in the recurring role of Melanie Daniels, a paralegal who will be mixing it up with the Newman family.
Considering that Martha Madison (Marly Nelson-Foster, “The Bay,” ex-Belle Black, “Days of Our Lives,” ex-Elizabeth Webber, “General Hospital) married her husband, AJ Gilbert, back in 2007, the couple has no doubt heard the phrase, “So, when are you having kids?” a few thousand times. And now the pair has an answer!
The longtime soap star recently took to Twitter and announced the big news that she’s pregnant via a sneaky — yet effective — message: “My wise husband once said, ‘Life isn’t a fairy tale. It’s a series of complex chapters.’ This should be fun! #ItsAGirl #HalloweenBaby.”
