All My Children has escaped death but the ABC soap will be continuing on the internet without one of its most beloved stars. Yes, folks, it's official, the frackin' fantabulous Debbi Morgan is moving to The Young and the Restless!...
Who doesn't love them some Jessica Collins? The former daytime suds queen turned prime time stalwart will hit The Young and the Restless July 27 in the contract role of Avery Clark. A rep for the top-rated CBS soap tells TV Guide Magazine that Avery is a high-powered attorney — is there any other kind? — who will represent the accused murderess Sharon Newman. Who hires Avery? The Mustache! (And we know how much he likes hot blondes!)...
The Bold and the Beautifu
The Bold and The Beautiful was the big winner at the 38th annual Daytime Emmy Awards, taking home the trophy for Outstanding Drama Series for the third consecutive year.
It received four awards altogether, as it also tied in the directing category with another CBS soap, The Young and the Restless, while Heather Tom was named best supporting actress and Scott Clifton won best young actor.
Emmy Award Statue
General Hospital earned a leading 21 Daytime Emmy Awards nominations Wednesday, the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announced.
Right on its tail is The Young and the Restless with 20 nods...
Somebody call the Vatican, because there's a freakin' miracle happening on The Young and the Restless! On May 11, Beth Maitland will once again return to the soap as Traci Abbott — earth mama, moral compass, the very soul of Genoa City — and this time she'll be mixed up in the big Abby Newman (Marcy Rylan) drama. Though Maitland won Y&R's very first acting Emmy back in 1985, the beloved actress fell out of favor with some of the past producing teams and, for a while, was only showing up for weddings and funerals. Then she wasn't seen on the show for two full years. Thankfully, the current powers adore Maitland and keep finding cool ways to bring her back — no small thing in an era where so many of our great suds vets are considered as disposable as Handi Wipes. "When Beth shows up on our set, it tells me that the folks who run our show do indeed know the importance of heart and remember the value of family," notes Maitland's TV bro Peter Bergman (Jack). "People like Traci who look you in the eye and tell the honest truth are a rarer and rarer breed — in soaps and in life." TV Guide Magazine spoke with Maitland about her upcoming stint, her remarkable renaissance and — gasp! — her "double life" in Hollywood...
Vincent Irizarry, John Aniston
Nominations for the 38th annual Daytime Emmy Awards won't be announced until May 11 but we can tell you right now which soaps are most likely to land in the Outstanding Daytime Drama competition. Here's a look at what each of the seven serials submitted for the top prize and how they stack up.
All My Children (episode 10,505; airdate November 23, 2010)
A strong, crackling hour during which Dr. David Hayward — not dead after all — walks into the courtroom during his murder trial and shocks the snot out of everyone in Pine Valley. Oddly, there are no out-of-the-park performances here but the noir-ish flashbacks detailing how the dastardly doc (played by fan fave Vincent Irizarry) faked his demise and tried to frame his rival Ryan are exceptionally well crafted and quite riveting. The stuff of grand memories? Not really. But this is good, solid work and in some years (like this one) that's more than enough to put a show in the race.
Melody Thomas Scott
Nikki Newman is back the way we like her...hitting the sauce, baby! TV Guide Magazine caught up with The Young and the Restless' Melody Thomas Scott to chat about her character's latest fall off the wagon and an array of other hot topics — including her outrageous Emmy snub!
Sean Patrick Flannery
How cool is this? Actor Sean Patrick Flanery, known for TV hits ranging from The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles to The Dead Zone and that forever fab flick Powder, is heading to the CBS soap The Young and the Restless. He hits the air mid-April. In a nice switch-up, Flanery won't be playing yet another rich, Genoa City power-schemer but rather a...
Barbara Bloom, senior vice president of CBS Daytime, will leave the network when her contract expires at the end of the month.
"I've had the great fortune to work with an extraordinary group of executives, producers and talent who make CBS No. 1 in daytime," Bloom said Tuesday in a statement. "With CBS Daytime teed up for success and stability for many years ahead, the timing ...
Tonya Lee Williams
Fan fave Tonya Lee Williams is taking her much-missed The Young and the Restless character Olivia Winters over to The Bold and the Beautiful for a two-episode stint February 1-2. "I've only been waiting for this for 20 years!" says Williams. "So many of ...
