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.
Nominees for the 65th Annual DGA Awards were announced earlier this week with "Days of our Lives," "General Hospital" and "One Life to Live" representing the category of Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Daytime Serials for calendar year 2012. CBS soaps "The Bold and the Beautiful" and "The Young and the Restless" were the only daytime dramas without a nomination in the category. "General Hospital" dominated with nominations for directors Larry Carpenter, Scott McKinsey and William Ludel all getting recognition. Jill Mitwell received her ninth directing nomination for the "One Life to Live" episode entitled "Between Heaven and Hell," which aired during the soaps final week on television. Coincidently, the title of the episode is based on the fact that prior to its 43-year run began in 1968, "One Life to Live" was initially titled "Between Heaven and Hell." Albert Alarr was nominated for episode #11,895, which was the episode following the aftermath of explosions that found several of Salem's citizens in life-threatening situations. It was also the episode that found the drama series returning from a 2-week break while NBC broadcast the Summer Olympic games from London.
On today's edition of "The Talk," former "General Hospital" star Steve Burton (ex-Jason Morgan) confirmed, what Soap Opera Network had been hearing for the past several months, that he is joining CBS' "The Young and the Restless." The actor begins filming tomorrow, January 8. He first airs on Tuesday, January 29. He will portray the contract role of Dylan McAvoy, a rugged ex-soldier with a secret upon arriving in Genoa City.
On Monday, January 7, former "General Hospital" star Steve Burton (ex-Jason Morgan) will appear on CBS' "The Talk" with a huge announcement, according to a promo released Friday by the network. Does that mean he will announce his joining "The Young and the Restless?" It's definitely a possibility!
From "Cold Spring" to "Prosecuting Casey Anthony," former soap stars Marisa Ramirez ("General Hospital"), Sam Page ("All My Children"), Patrick Muldoon ("Days of our Lives," "Melrose Place"), Aiden Turner ("All My Children"), Elizabeth Rohm ("One Life to Live"), Sean Patrick Flannery ("The Young and the Restless") and Scott Evans ("One Life to Live") will grace the Lifetime movie screens this month as the group of actors help tell the networks tradition of stories involving stalkings, affairs and murder.
