General Hospital ABC/Instargram

In September, John J. York, 65, announced that he was battling multiple smoldering myeloma and myelodysplastic syndromes and that he would need a blood stem cell donor. After a few days, he miraculously found that donor.

While he was recovering from his treatment, he would need to take some time off from General Hospital.

This week, fans got some good news on York’s recovery, “Mac is back!”

We will see him back in action next month, according to Soap Opera Digest!


Canada aired the wrong episode of General Hospital today

There are very few huge faux pas a network can do on television to feel the wrath of angry fans. They can cancel a beloved show, like Everwood, ALF, or Jericho. They can cut off a Billy Joel concert special a minute too soon. But the biggest sin is to mess with the airing of a Soap Opera.

That is what happened in Canada today. According to Soap Opera Digest, someone accidentally played Wednesday’s episode today, so they know what is happening tomorrow before the US does.

To make up for it, our neighbors to the north will get today’s episode tomorrow. Then, on Thursday, everything should be back to normal. That is unless someone puts the wrong tape in.


TV News: CBS picks up the first new Soap since 1999, The Rookie and Tamron Hall renewed

So, let’s start with the easy stuff first. ABC picked up The Rookie for season 7, and Disney Entertainment is still talking with Tamron Hall for a sixth season.

Now, let’s talk about what you want to talk about. Back in 1999, we got the new Soap Opera Passions. Since then, nothing. Just a lot of cancellations, like that one, Port Charles, Sunset Beach, All My Children, One Life to Live, As the World Turns, and Guiding Light.

However, today, CBS announced they picked up The Gates, which will debut in January. The Daytime Drama follows the lives of a wealthy Black family in a posh, gated community.

The Gates is a joint venture between CBS Studios and the NAACP.

It will be interesting to see who they cast. I am sure there are a lot of actors who will be clawing their way in to get an audition for the show. Who do you want to see star on the Soap?


The men from Days of our Lives pose for Playboy!

The men of the Daytime Drama Days of our Lives did some After Dark promotion to get people to watch their show. Paul Telfer, Rob Scott Wilson, Eric Martsolf, Christopher Sean, and Bryan Dattilo posed for Playgirl.

The five men talked about their time in Salem and their lives throughout the sand through the hourglass.

But I didn’t read the article. Because I was just there for photos.

And now I will be watching the Peacock Soap again. On that note, why didn’t the online mag have them pose in bathtubs with soap bubbles. Doesn’t that seem like a given?

The Young and the Restless is celebrating its 51st birthday next month, and CBS is not waiting that long to give the daytime Soap Opera its present.

What did they get for the people of Geona City? Four more seasons, bringing the show’s total to 55!

“The YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS has been a staple of daytime television for over 50 years, and it is with great pleasure that we will continue that legacy at CBS,” said Amy Reisenbach, president of CBS Entertainment. “The talented cast and writers deliver compelling performances and stories on a daily basis and have provided iconic moments that have kept the show on top of the ratings and thrilled generations of fans for over five decades. We look forward to seeing what new creative twists and turns they have planned for the folks of Genoa City.”

Congrats to Y&R for the renewal! Long live Soaps!!!
