On Tuesday, December 9, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) announced the nominees for the 46th Annual NAACP Image Awards. For the first time since at least 1994, when the category was first recognized, no actor or actress from a daytime drama series was nominated in the Outstanding Actor or Outstanding Actress in a Daytime Drama Series following the organizations decision not to include the categories this year. Representatives for the NAACP have yet to officially comment on the matter at press time.
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).

Attention fans of CBS Daytime's "The Bold and the Beautiful," "The Young and the Restless," "Let's Make a Deal," "The Talk," and "The Price is Right": If you live in the New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Baltimore, Boston, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Miami, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh or the Sacramento television markets, you currently have no access to CBS programming if you subscribe to Dish Network. You are also missing out on The CW's programming if you live in Atlanta, Detroit, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Sacramento, San Francisco and Seattle. This is the result of a carriage dispute between CBS Corp. -- owner of broadcaster CBS and co-owner of The CW -- and Dish Network that was set to expire on Thursday, December 4. The two sides agreed to extend talks on a new carriage contract beyond the 4:00 PM, PT deadline yesterday. The satellite provider eventually dropped the stations from its programming lineup earlier today when the talks fell through. Also affected by the dispute are three independent stations in Dallas, Los Angeles and New York and two MyNetworkTV affiliates in Boston and Miami.
On the Thursday, December 4 broadcast of Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report," host Stephen Colbert covered the ambassadorship of "The Bold and the Beautiful" producer Colleen Bell, wife of head writer and executive producer, Bradley P. Bell, with a hilarious take on the drama surrounding her confirmation following some lively comments from Senator John McCain, who strongly disagreed with President Obama's choice of Bell for the position. “We’re about to vote on a totally unqualified individual to be ambassador to a nation which is very important to our national security interest. Her qualifications are as a producer of the television soap opera ‘The Bold and The Beautiful,’ contributed 800,000 [dollars] to Obama in the last election and bundled more than $2.1 million for President Obama’s re-election effort,” said McCain on the Senate floor on Tuesday, December 2, just before Bell was confirmed as the U.S. Ambassador to Hungary with a vote of 52-42.
On Wednesday, November 5, CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" shocked the daytime world when it announced that Kim Matula would be departing the drama series after nearly five years portraying Hope Logan, but don't fret, Hope will continue being part of the canvas, says head writer and executive producer, Bradley P. Bell.
