Something wicked this way comes, and it’s all thanks to “The Young and the Restless’” Christian LeBlanc (Michael Baldwin), producer of “Deadtime Stories,” a creepy yet charming children’s series premiering on Nickelodeon this week! As we promised in our teaser article about the series, Soap Opera Network caught up with the North Carolina native to get all of the behind-the-scenes scoop on producing the scary show in which he and “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Ashley Jones (Bridget Forrester; ex-Megan Dennison, “Y&R”) appear. Read on for the devilish details... if you dare!
CBS announced yesterday that “The Price Is Right” will be introducing a brand new pricing game called “Do the Math” during its season premiere week (Monday, September 23 through Friday, September 27), but that’s not all the longest-running talk show can boast about: According to the official press release, several stars from “The Bold and the Beautiful” and “The Young and the Restless” will be appearing on the game show all season long! There’s no word yet on who will appear and when, so stay tuned for details as they develop!

Former daytime actor Kyle Lowder (ex-Rick Forrester, “The Bold and the Beautiful;” ex-Brady Black, “Days of our Lives”) is shedding the super-tight 80s leather pants and sexy, shaggy long hair he’s been sporting for the Las Vegas production of Rock of Ages and trading them in for a — wait for it — coat! That’s right, folks: The actor is walking away from the 80s rock show in which he portrayed rockstar Stacee Jaxx to play the title lead in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s famous musical, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
Margot Wain has been promoted from Director, Daytime Programs to Vice President, Daytime Programs, CBS Entertainment, it was announced today by Angelica McDaniel, Senior Vice President, Daytime, CBS Entertainment, to whom she reports.
