Michael Logan's Worst of 2007

Drake Hogestyn by Chris Haston/NBC

I knew we were in for a bumpy ride when All My Children started the year by murdering Dixie — the show's heart and soul — with a plate of poisoned pancakes. But hey, that meant more airtime for Zarf, a rude, suffocatingly hammy, penis-flashing transgender rock star who fell in love with Pine Valley's saintly lesbian Bianca. Appropriately, fans on the Internet named the couple "Barf." In a pathetic attempt to boost ratings, Days of our Lives pretended to kill its most popular male character, John, played by Drake Hogestyn. Even the cast was fooled. But with the Nielsens staying flat, Hogestyn is now back at work and we're left to wonder: How the hell can we ever invest in Days again?General Hospital viewers had a fit and threatened to stop watching when heartthrob Jax was held hostage and forced into sex by a loony Russian chick. Meanwhile, they didn't seem to mind when a Port Charles strangler killed three women.Things that made me cringe: Constantine Maroulis on The Bold ... read more

Ratings: Nighttime Barker, Daytime Emmys Clean Up

Bob Barker by Gregg DeGuire/

Friday night's prime-time encore of Bob Barker's final turn as The Price Is Right host handily won the 8 o'clock hour, drawing 8.42 million total viewers. In turn, CBS' broadcast of the Daytime (Entertainment) Emmy Awards came out on top from 9 to 11 pm, delivering 8.33 million viewers — a 37 percent surge over last year's hour-longer telecast, and the awards' best numbers since 2004. Plus, we got to see utterly random folks pontificate YouTube-style about the acting chops of Tom Pelphrey and Michelle Stafford. Compelling stuff, that is. read more

Barker Wins 19th Emmy, Says Price Is Pondering Rosie

Talk about your fabulous prizes. Bob Barker reaped his 19th Emmy for outstanding game-show host on Friday night, synching up precisely with his final appearance as the Price Is Right host. "This proves that the judges have sympathy for an old man who doesn't have a job," Barker quipped when accepting the award. Backstage, the TV icon confirmed that Rosie O'Donnell, despite the View alum's coldly received trade-mag campaign to get the gig, may still be in the running to come on down as the gamer's new host. "She knows the show!" Barker says of O'Donnell. "So far as doing it, there's no doubt in my mind that she could. Now, whether they want a lady host, I don't know. As far as I know, they've only auditioned men. Although I do believe they're going to have a meeting with Rosie." Sigh. Give a kiss goodbye to all the heterosexual sex talk during Plinko.The 34th-annual Daytime Emmys also saw Ellen DeGeneres once again best The View in the talk-show and talk-show-host contests.

Looking Forward to the Daytime Emmys

Joshua Morrow by Robert Voets/CBS

I did a photo shoot with Joshua Morrow (Nick) and Sharon Case (Sharon) the other day. It was really fun — or at least Sharon and I had fun. Josh couldn’t wait to get out of there. He had a softball game to go to, and taking pictures is not Josh’s favorite thing to do. Here he had two hot babes draped over him and he still didn’t like it.Sharon just got married, so she’s in honeymoon bliss. It’s very sweet to see. Me myself, I’m alone, barren and lonely, ha ha ha. That’s completely a joke. Of course I'm not barren.The Daytime Emmys are next week. It will be very fun I’m sure. It's always fun to see everybody. I’m very much looking forward to the lead-actress luncheon on Thursday. And I picked the place and put together the event, since Susan Flannery (Stephanie, B&B) was egregiously not nominated this year — although she will be coming to the luncheon. Unfortunately, Maura West (Carly, ATWT) cannot attend. I’m very bumme... read more

Gas, Colonics and the Daytime Emmys

Welcome to my first blog. I have been sitting in front of my computer thinking of what to say that will make me sound profound, intelligent, funny and interesting. I have reached the conclusion that I am neither intelligent, profound, funny nor interesting. Oh well, instead, I'll just tell you a little bit about my week. I spent a lot of time at CBS Television City, where The Young and the Restless is filmed. I am immersed in a really fun storyline for the summer. Tune in, it will be a hoot. I will tease you with this: Kevin inadvertently gets embroiled in some misdeeds that may land him in some hot water. I had a lot of fun this past week working with Michael Graziadei (Daniel) and Adrienne Frantz (Amber). The Grove is right next door to the studio, so I'd walk over for lunch to feed my ever growing green tea addiction. Here's an inside tip to any fans of the show visiting Los Angeles: Go to The Grove between the hours of 1 and 3 pm and you are bound to run into a gaggle of Y... read more

Daytime Emmy? $350. Getting Hosed? Priceless.

The New York City-based National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, which administers the Daytime Emmys, has announced that starting this year, as a belt-tightening measure, it will only float one free statue per category. Meaning, those who share in a win will need to pony up $350 to go home with their own golden girl. The West Coast-based ATAS, which oversees the Primetime Emmys, says that "as a matter of principle, we do not agree with the decision," and as such has offered to reimburse those invoiced for a statue. The only catch is you have to saw off the UPC code on the bottom, all layers of cardboard. No peeling! read more
