"General Hospital's" mysterious Dixon, who Paul Hornsby (<strong>Richard Burgi</strong>) has been heard conversing with for the last several weeks, has finally been identified as actor <strong>Troy Ruptash</strong>, who debuts in the recurring role beginning <strong>Friday, February 19</strong>, <em>Soap Opera Network</em> has learned.

Along with lighter fare and high-concept comedies, the broadcast networks are looking to correct course in development for the 2016-17 television buying season with more of a focus on soaps, <a href="http://deadline.com/2015/08/network-development-trends-soaps-comedies-one-hour-shows-remakes-1201500218/" target="_blank">reports</a> <em>Deadline</em>.

In a posting on his Facebook page last week, former "Desperate Housewives" and "One Life to Live" star <strong>Tuc Watkins</strong> commented on his perception of gay stereotypes as shown on ABC's "Modern Family" each week. The actor's comments soon got picked up by the <em>Greg in Hollywood</em> blog, which got the attention of "Modern Family" actor <strong>Jesse Tyler Ferguson</strong>, who plays one half of the popular gay couple on the sitcom.

You asked, and we answered! Following <em>Soap Opera Network</em>’s <a title="‘Baby Daddy’ Welcomes Another Daytime Star!" href="https://www.soapoperanetwork.com/2014/09/baby-daddy-welcomes-another-daytime-star" target="_blank">report</a> that former “Days of our Lives” star <strong>Matt Cedeno</strong> (ex-Brandon Walker) would be appearing on an upcoming episode of ABC Family’s “Baby Daddy,” your enthusiasm was so great, we reached out to the star to see if he’d spill additional details about his appearance. And guess what? Not only was he more than happy to discuss his sitcom role (which airs <strong>Wednesday, October 22</strong>), he also opened up about starring in <strong>50 Cent</strong>’s drama series, “Powers,” his reaction to <strong>Alison Sweeney</strong>’s departure as “DAYS’” Sami and much more!

As <em>Soap Opera Network</em> <a title="‘Dallas’ Star Books Role on ‘2 Broke Girls’" href="https://www.soapoperanetwork.com/2014/08/dallas-star-books-role-two-broke-girls" target="_blank">previously reported</a>, former “Passions” and “Desperate Housewives” star <strong>Jesse Metcalfe</strong> will be appearing on an upcoming episode of CBS’ “2 Broke Girls,” and a photo from his guest appearance has surfaced!

With a 13-episode order, Lifetime has renewed "Devious Maids," executive produced by <strong>Marc Cherry</strong> and <strong>Eva Longoria </strong>("Desperate Housewives"), and starring <strong>Ana Ortiz</strong>,<strong> Dania Ramírez</strong>,<strong> Roselyn Sánchez</strong>,<strong> Edy Ganem</strong>,<strong> Judy Reyes</strong> and <strong>Susan Lucci </strong>("All My Children"), for a third season.

“Dallas’” Jesse Metcalfe (Chistopher Ewing) is one lucky man: He had the opportunity of romancing “Desperate Housewives’” Gabi (Eva Longoria), and now he’s in the running to land “Two Broke Girls’” Max (Kat Dennings)!

She may have helped create one of the most popular and socially engaging television programs on the air today with Lifetime's "Devious Maids," but that doesn't mean fans of former "Desperate Housewives" and "The Young and the Restless" actress and entrepreneur Eva Longoria have seen the last of her in front of the camera. FOX announced earlier this evening that Longoria will guest-star for a three-episode arc on the second season of its Golden Globe award winning comedy series "Brooklyn Nine-Nine," which co-stars former "One Life to Live" actress Melissa Fumero (ex-Adriana Cramer) as Detective Amy Santiago.

It’s a far cry from Port Charles, but “General Hospital’s” Vanessa Marcil (ex-Brenda Barrett) will soon be seen in Puerto Rico — via Hallmark Channel’s new film, “Stranded in Paradise!”

Former daytime actor Trevor St. John (ex-Victor Lord Jr./Todd Manning, “One Life to Live”) has been popping up on various television shows since his soap gig ended in 2013, and fans of the Washington native have yet another small screen appearance to look forward to: He’ll be appearing in the Sunday, March 30 episode of CBS’ popular drama, “The Mentalist!”

When thinking of daytime dramas like “The Bold and the Beautiful” and “The Young and the Restless,” extreme drama, intrigue, love and romance probably come to mind. But how about comedy? Is laughter an important component within daytime dramas?

While hints of a possible return to "General Hospital" began on his Twitter page last week, where he referred to numerous Ports in the world (Portlandia, Port Hueneme, Port of Los Angeles, Port of Long Beach), an ABC representative confirms to Soap Opera Network that actor Ryan Carnes will be reprising his role as Lucas Jones, the adopted son of Bobbie (Jacklyn Zeman) and Tony Jones (Brad Maule), on the ABC Daytime drama series. "Like a ship lost in the night at sea, wondering where my next port will be...," Carnes tweeted on Wednesday, December 4.

What do you get when you mix some of televisions hottest stars with instruments? Band From TV, of course! And the musical group, which includes former “All My Children” star Eddie Matos (ex-Ricky Torres; ex-Peter Marquez, “General Hospital”), is slated to rock at yet another charity fundraiser event.

The revival of “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” could be just the start of cancelled network shows finding new homes in other places. Not only will “Arrested Development,” a popular comedy Fox cancelled in 2006, continue on Netflix starting Sunday, May 26, but ABC’s recently cancelled ‘Body of Proof’ may get a similar second chance!

With just one month left before the premiere of Lifetime's "Devious Maids," the cable network has released key art material highlighting Ana Ortiz (“Ugly Betty”), Dania Ramirez (“Entourage”), Roselyn Sanchez (“Without a Trace”), Edy Ganem (“Livin’ Loud”) and Judy Reyes(“Scrubs”) as five ambitious maids who, while working for the rich and famous in Beverly Hills, dream of wealthy lives of their own. Sadly, murder is at the center of their world as one of their fellow maids is murdered and the quintet makes it their mission to find out who committed the heinous crime. "Maids" also stars Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane, "All My Children"), Matt Cedeno (ex-Brandon Walker, “Days of our Lives”) and Brianna Brown (ex-Lisa Niles, “General Hospital”). Look for the series to premiere Sunday, June 23 at 10:00 PM ET/9:00 PM CT on Lifetime.

ABC has consistently brought soap-worthy programming to primetime (“Desperate Housewives” and “Revenge,” to name but two), and the schedule for this fall is no different: Intermixing with popular mainstay shows like “The Middle,” “Modern Family,” and “Grey’s Anatomy,” come thirteen brand new shows, a few of which may spur “General Hospital” and other daytime soaps to come to mind! And Wendy Moniz (ex-Mayor Finn, “One Life to Live,” ex-Dinah Marler, “Guiding Light”) strengthens the soap/primetime connection with a role in the new drama, “Betrayal.” Read on to get the exciting details!

Sunday, June 23 can’t come fast enough, because that’s when "All My Children" fans are going to go gaga over Susan Lucci's (ex-Erica Kane) debut as Genevieve Delatour on Lifetime’s “Devious Maids”! The dramady, which was dreamed up by “Desperate Housewives” creator, Marc Cherry, and is executive produced by “Housewives” star Eva Longoria (ex-Isabella Williams, “The Young and the Restless”), is already making waves as a can’t-miss hit. And luckily, Entertainment Tonight has released a first look at the maids who will no doubt be causing La Lucci loads of trouble!
