Fred Willard, who won a Daytime Emmy Award for his portrayal of John Forrester on "The Bold and the Beautiful," has died. He was 86 years old.
Get ready for high stakes drama, rivalries and a fashion faux pas on "The Bold and the Beautiful" and "The Young and the Restless."
As it gears up to broadcast its first major awards telecast with the "42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards" on <strong>Sunday, April 26</strong>, Pop has released the Daytime Emmy Nominee Reels for Outstanding Special Guest Performer in a Drama Series. Competing this year for the newest trophy in the Daytime Emmy assembly line are <strong>Meredith Baxter</strong> as Maureen, <strong>Sally Kellerman</strong> as Constance Bingham, and <strong>Ray Wise</strong> as Ian Ward, respectively, on "The Young and the Restless," <strong>Donna Mills</strong> as Madeline Reeves and <strong>Linda Elena Tovar</strong> as Rosalie Martinez, respectively, on "General Hospital," and <strong>Fred Willard</strong> as John Forrester on "The Bold and the Beautiful."
It looks like Showtime's <a title="Showtime To Air New Episodes of Cult Classic ‘Twin Peaks;’ Will ‘Y&R’s’ Ray Wise Return to the Series?" href="https://www.soapoperanetwork.com/2014/10/showtime-air-new-episodes-cult-classic-twin-peaks">revival</a> of "Twin Peaks," the cult drama series that aired on ABC from 1990 to 1991, might be in jeopardy after co-creator <strong>David Lynch</strong> announced this weekend that he has dropped out of the project as director, following tense contract negotiations with the network that were halted over disagreements on financial compensation.
While the date for the 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards wasn't necessarily a secret, it was still somewhat surprising when it was revealed that next year's Daytime Creative Arts Emmy Awards would be taking place on <strong>Friday, April 24</strong> and the big show would be taking place on<strong> Sunday, April 26</strong> - the earliest either ceremony will have taken place since at least 2006.<strong> </strong>In an interview with <strong>David Michaels</strong>, Senior Executive Director and Co-Executive Producer for the Daytime Emmy Awards & Events, who notes to <em>Soap Opera Network</em> that we can likely thank "The Young and the Restless'"<strong> Christian Le Blanc</strong> (Michael Baldwin) for revealing the dates online, the executive addresses the red carpet debacle that rocked the industry earlier this year, while also providing insight into what we can look forward to seeing from both the creative side and the broadcast side for next year's telecast, and a greater understanding of how four new categories will change the future of the awards ceremony.
Good news, soap fans: The date for the 2015 Daytime Emmy Awards has been set, and it’s closer than you might think!
The highly popular yet short-lived television show “Twin Peaks” is getting a second chance to woo fans: Showtime is bringing the <strong>David Lynch</strong> and <strong>Mark Frost</strong> mystery series back for a limited run!
On "The Young and the Restless," Ian Ward (Ray Wise) has kidnapped Mariah (Camryn Grimes), who was just revealed to be Sharon Newman's (Sharon Case) biological daughter after months of will they [the writers] or won't they, and Sharon is none too pleased with the "sociopath." She demands that he give her back her daughter, while Ian informs her that the clock is ticking. Meanwhile, Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) is dangling with bottle issues as she ponders how much more a woman can take without breaking into a million pieces, or taking a drink in this case. Will this latest drama push Nikki over the edge? Tune into CBS' "The Young and the Restless" next week to find out!
Following last week's revelation to her husband, Victor Newman (Eric Braeden), that Dylan (Steve Burton) is actually Paul's (Doug Davidson) son and not Ian Ward's (Ray Wise), Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) is nearly at a loss for words as she tells Paul that he's Dylan's father just as Dylan walks into the room. Meanwhile, Hillary (Mischael Morgan) is dabbling in a father/son triangle and potential "Who's The Daddy?" territory with her upcoming nuptials to Neil (Kristoff St. John). Will Devon (Bryton James) be able to stop the wedding?
After getting shot on last week's "The Young and the Restless," Paul Williams (Doug Davidson) needs a liver transplant and the only person who might be able to save his life is Dylan McAvoy (Steve Burton), but how is that possible? Well in a twist that's about to rock Genoa City, it looks like Dylan might actually be Paul's son with Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) and not Ian Ward's (Ray Wise).
After her daughter died last year as a result of a hit-and-run, a desperate Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson) will attempt everything in her power to have another child with Billy Abbott (David Tom), even going so far as to drug and "seduce" the married man into having sex with her. The question is, is it a "sinful seduction" or an outright rape? In a newly released promo for next week's episodes of CBS' "The Young and the Restless," the series calls what Chloe is doing to get her hands on Billy's crown jewels (pun intended) as a sinful seduction, but visually it's clear that Billy isn't even conscious for Chloe's plan. Meanwhile, Billy is also unknowingly already dealing with another set of baby drama. It turns out that his wife, Victoria (Amelia Heinle), is pregnant! The only problem is that it could be Billy's, or it could be Stitch's (Sean Carrigan). As for Ian Ward (Ray Wise), he better not get in the way of his son Dylan (Steve Burton) when it comes to the woman he loves, or he'll end up paying the ultimate price.
