Matt Bomer debuts in tonight's Spring premiere episode of "Glee," the FOX sensation whose cast recently learned they are one of the Top-10 selling digital artists of all-time according to Nielsen SoundScan. The list included such artists as Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry and the Black Eyed Peas. The "Glee" cast ranks eighth with 32 million songs digitally downloaded.
With news of Gary Tomlin and Christopher Whitesell's ascension to the top of the "Days of our Lives" writing team after the NBC daytime soap let go Marlene McPherson and Darrell Ray Thomas, Jr., less than a year after the two were hired to replace Dena Higley, Soap Opera Digest in its newest issue (issue dated April 16, 2012) is reporting that Tomlin and Whitesell has added the multiple Emmy award winning talents of veteran writer Lorraine Broderick to its new regime.
Although the likelihood was expected thanks to the loss of long-time soaps "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" in 2011 and 2012, which were preceded by the departures of "Guiding Light" and "As The World Turns" in 2009 and 2010, news broke on Thursday, March 22 that after 22 years in publication Soap Opera Weekly would end its successful run as one of the premier soap opera magazines. The final decision to end the mag was just one of many blows the soap opera industry has felt in as many years. Soap Opera Network takes a by the numbers look at Weekly and how its readership levels helped lead to its ultimate demise.

With the cancellations of "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" back in April it was unclear at the time as to where their replacement shows "The Chew" and "The Revolution" would film their daily episodes. Now with "Chew" filming in New York and soon "The Revolution" set to begin filming in New York as well, Soap Opera Network has learned that ABC Daytime is shifting much of its operations to New York City including talent management and media relations.

Soap Opera Network has confirmed with an official Prospect Park spokesperson that Darnell Williams has reached an agreement to continue with "All My Children" for its scheduled online resurrection in 2012. This afternoon, Williams' former and future co-star, Lindsay Hartley (Cara) jumped over the production company that licensed "AMC" and "One Life to Live" earlier this year to reveal the news on Twitter. The excited actress exclaimed to fans that the popular actor "has officially signed on!! More to come." All deals between Prospect Park and performers remain tentative at the moment due to the fact that an official deal hasn't been reached between the actors' union AFTRA and the production company.
