When we reported that Marlene McPherson (pictured right, with former "DAYS" co-head writer Darrell Ray Thomas) had been hired on as head writer of Prospect Park's version of "All My children" back on January 23, it was unclear at the time as to whether she would be joined by a co-head writer. Soap Opera Network has since learned that it'll be a "Days of our Lives" reunion of sorts for "AMC" as McPherson will be joined by Elizabeth Snyder, who was an Associate Head Writer at "DAYS" from 2011-2012.

At the 2013 Writers Guild Awards, "The Young and The Restless" beat out "Days of our Lives" and "One Life To Live" for their fifth win. The show previously won in 2003, 2006, 2008, and 2010.
Millions of viewers were shocked when the power went out during tonights Super Bowl XLVII (or Super Bowl 47 for those not up-to-date with their Roman numerals) game between the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. CBS issued a statement on the matter, but has sadly remained mum on its decision to ignore viewers of CBS Daytime programming, which remains #1 in its daypart via "The Young and the Restless," "The Price is Right," "Let's Make a Deal," "The Bold and the Beautiful" and "The Talk."
As expected, CBS has renewed its entire daytime lineup that consists of "Let's Make a Deal," "The Price is Right," "The Young and the Restless," "The Bold and the Beautiful" and "The Talk" for the 2013-2014 television season.
As previously reported, daytime veteran Steve Burton ("General Hospital," "Days of our Lives") will debut Tuesday, January 29 on CBS' "The Young and the Restless" as Dylan McAvoy, a rugged ex-soldier holding a secret upon his arrival in Genoa City. The character looks to be primarily interacting with Joshua Morrow's Nicholas Newman and Jessica Collins' Avery Clark, at least initially.

In a report outlining the tremendous turnaround daytime soap operas have experienced in recent months, following five years of consistent cancellations, which found numerous soaps ending their runs starting with "Passions" in 2008, "Guiding Light" in 2009, "As The World Turns" in 2010, "All My Children" in 2011 and "One Life to Live" in 2012, Deadline is reporting that CBS and ABC are about to forgo another year of fan heartbreak. According to the sites sources, the networks are expected to continue production of "The Bold and the Beautiful" and "General Hospital" for the foreseeable future. This news would follow in line with NBC's recent announcement that it had renewed "Days of our Lives" through the next television season (2013-2014).
On Monday, January 21, if you are wondering what happened to your favorite daytime dramas ("The Bold and the Beautiful," "Days of our Lives," "General Hospital," and "The Young and the Restless") or looking for someone to blame for their not airing, you can thank none other than President Barack H. Obama. On this day, President Obama will be publicly inaugurated for the second and final time after winning against former Governor Mitt Romney in last November's hotly debated presidential election.
