ABC is proclaiming strength and consistency as it formulates an aggressive fall 2019-2020 television schedule that the network deems its most stable schedule in over a decade.

After a leak of her appearance in a forthcoming episode of "Days of our Lives" hit the web recently, the show has officially confirmed Victoria Konefal's casting as Ciara Brady. She first airs in early December.

In addition to "The Bold and the Beautiful" becoming the <a href="https://www.soapoperanetwork.com/2016/01/the-bold-and-the-beautiful-sole-nominee-and-defacto-winner-of-glaad-media-award">sole nominee and de facto winner</a> in the category of Outstanding Daily Drama, nominees for the "The 27th Annual GLAAD Media Awards" were announced today by the organization which recognizes and honors media published, released or broadcast during calendar year 2015 for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and the issues that affect their lives.

Former "One Life to Live" actor <strong>Josh Casaubon</strong> (ex-D.A.

One is a drama, and one is a comedy, but both “How To Get Away With Murder” and “Black-ish” are proving to be quite popular additions to ABC’s lineup — so much so, the alphabet network has ordered additional episodes of each.
