In honor of ABC's "The Goldbergs" receiving its first ever TV Guide Magazine cover, the publication has turned back the dial with an all '80s-themed issue, due out on newsstands later this week. As part of the celebration, several of daytime's biggest hunks from the decade will be featured in the upcoming issue, including Kin Shriner (as Scotty Baldwin, "General Hospital"), Stephen Nichols (as Steven "Patch" Johnson, "Days of our Lives"), A Martinez (as Cruz Castillo, "Santa Barbara"), Doug Davidson (as Paul Williams, "The Young and the Restless"), Don Diamont (as Brad Carlton, "The Young and the Restless") and Michael E. Knight (as Tad Martin, "All My Children").
ABC has confirmed that it will be recasting the contract role of Kiki Jerome on "General Hospital" with "The Young and the Restless" alum Hayley Erin (ex-Abby Newman). She is set to first air sometime in late February. Kristen Alderson, who originated the role, opted to leave when her contract was up earlier this month. She last airs in early February.
The CW announced today during its portion of the Television Critics Association Press Tour in Pasadena that it has given an early renewal to "Arrow," "Jane the Virgin," "Reign," "Supernatural," "The 100," "The Flash," "The Originals" and "The Vampire Diaries," all of which appeared on the network's fall 2014 schedule, for the 2015-2016 television season.

"The Royals" marks E!'s first entry in the original scripted drama series game when it premieres Sunday, March 15, and as the network highlights the annual Christmas address by Queen Helena (Elizabeth Hurley), who says, "I'm supposed to tell you what a wonderful year it's been. I'm supposed to smile and stick to the script. But the truth is, as a family, as a monarchy, we're hanging on by a thread," we can't help but prepare to witness the next great soapy drama!
