Back in September, shortly after Doug Davidson celebrated his 40th anniversary on The Young and the Restless, the daytime drama fired him. Fans of the show were obviously pissed because you don’t mess with soap fans. Thus, they protested Y&R’s decision and the bosses listended.

Therefore, he is back on the show! Eric Braeden broke the news on Twitter last week by posting the above photo. Then Paul Williams followed up with, “Okay! So, the cat is out of the bag. NONE of any of this would happen without all of your undying loyalty, support and kindness. All of you are the reason ‘Paul’ is back on the canvas. THANK YOU SO MUCH. @EBraeden has been incredible the entire time. A huge thanks to him as well!”

It is nice when shows do the right thing. This was the very right thing to do. Soap Operas have to realize viewers prefer the people who have been there for a while over the newbies. They have been welcoming them into their homes, five days a week for years, they have a special bond with them. Take them away, they are pissed and stop watching. With ratings the way they are, they cannot afford to lose any more eyeballs.


The Young & the Restless will say goodbye to Kristoff St. John in April
February 10th, 2019 under TV Soaps. [ Comments: none ]

Last Sunday, Kristoff St. John passed away suddenly. His character, Neil Winters, was still a part of The Young & the Restless, which means the daytime drama has to figure out what to do with his character. On Friday, they announced how they will handle the actor’s death.

Y&R wrote, “The Young and the Restless will forever value the legacy of Kristoff St. John in his portrayal of Neil Winters. Beginning in late April, Y&R will feature a storyline that pays tribute to both Kristoff and his character.”

The reason why it will take so long to deal with his passing is that TV soaps tape so far in advance.


Kristoff St. John’s final Y&R episode airs today, tribute episode on Friday

On Monday morning, we all woke up to the shocking news that Kristoff St. John suddenly passed away at the age of 52. The most saddened by his death are the fans of The Young & The Restless.

Today, 3 days after his death, he will make his final appearance on the CBS daytime drama. A role he has been seen in ever since February 14, 1991. On Friday, the #1 soap opera will give Neil Winters a send-off episode. Six days before he would have celebrated spending his 18th anniversary on the show.

No word yet, how Y&R will deal with his character in the future, but for now we will just let them mourn someone who has been part of their close-knit family for almost 2 decades.


Like sands through the hourglass, Days of our Lives will never end!
January 8th, 2019 under TV Soaps. [ Comments: 1 ]

NBC announced today that it picked up Days of our Lives for a 55th season aka through the 2019-2020 season.

Just like Stefano DiMera, this soap opera constantly rises from the dead over and over again. Just when it looks like NBC is ready to pull the plug, it miraculously comes back to life and does better than expectations. For example, the daytime drama was up 4% last season while its biggest competition is down in the ratings. Impressive for a show that is older than most of us.

How old? They aired their 13,500th episode in 2018. That is a lot of weddings, divorces, babies, deaths, murders, affairs, tears, illness, people coming back from the dead, demonic possessions, love triangles, questionable paternities and unknown family members to write about. Yet, they still find a way to do it and make it entertaining. If they didn’t, then we would still not be watching the show for 53 years and counting.

The show about the Bradys, the Hortons and the DiMeras living in Salem turns 54 in November and it does not look a day over 25! But then again, in soap years, you age rapidly until you are out of college and then time slows down to almost a crawl. Am I right?


John J. York and his 5 siblings recreate a family photo!
December 31st, 2018 under TV Soaps. [ Comments: none ]

In 1966, John J. York and his 5 siblings took a family photo together. Now 52 years later, they decided to recreate it when they were all together for the holiday. How did they do? I think they were pretty spot on since, especially the two babies are a lot taller than they were when they were kids.
