Thanks for doing this Jason! I remember doing one for CBS stations in 2006 for stations I had compiled with odd schedules I just might have to repost.
Use to be very common for a lot of stations to air Days in the mornings back in the late 90s/early 00's out west but I see that's not the case anymore. KWWL use to air Days at 4. It was weird because they had Passions at 10am and didn't air Days til 4.
I'm on the fence the Billy/Phyllis affair exposure. On one hand the show is looking great and clearly well directed. On the other hand some of the dialogue has been atrocious.
For example Nick and Summer's conversation in today's episode was baaaad. Summer sounded like she was a fifteen year old girl and Nick sound like he was talking to a preteen. "That's mature!" made me laugh. Then Jack going to Jill "I'll get you for this!" was laughably bad too and the scene seemed illogical.
Billy calling out Victoria on her hypocrisy was fun. Why is rich Travis living with her now?
Yeah we probably won't see any of Morina's actual work until December, maybe late November at the earliest unless there's some rewriting going on now. Someone suggested Chelsea will keep mum on the true paternity and secretly enjoy raising Adam's second child with Nick. However Chelsea and Nick seems like such a contrived uninteresting pairing so I don't know how it will go.
Faith Daniels appeared as herself on Murphy Brown a couple of times and then just disappeared from forever after quitting/fired from NBC from TV forever until The Today Show's 50th anniversary in 2012. Best of yet to come was true with Bell, and I loved Jeanne was one selected to give it to him:
Peck was a little diva jerk I believe which why he was fired in 2002 and claimed to "have learned his lesson" upon his return in 2005, which was months before Clark had returned because JER was originally going to a Sami/Austin/Nicole triangle that ended up going nowhere.
Sussman Morina said when the show was planning to visit Brad's past in 2006 they were originally going to have Lisa Mansfield resurface as the main antagonist but Latham being unfamiliar with Y&R history scrapped the idea and went the with Nazi schlock instead.
Well I'm sure TPTB are sad they let John Abott died I'm quite certain if John was still alive we'd end with Sharon throwing herself at John that would complete everything with Phyllis and Chelsea longing for John too.
Haha I will occasionally read some day ahead Canadian recaps to see if a show is worth watching or just to delete it off my DVR...
The show needs to fire Pratt on claims of incompetence and sabotage rather than to attempt to patiently wait for his alleged high priced contract to expire later this fall. The entire "Did Adam die again" angle in addition to missing diary pages clearly matches Skye's volcano death in terms of Y&R's worst story in history, especially when you consider the alternatives:
1. Victor bribes the judge and the prison guard's family to let Adam off. However Adam is feeling guilty and feeling like a worthless father to Connor so that he runs off to a Buddhist monastery to find himself leaving an understanding but confused and heartbroken Chelsea behind.
2. Jill recognizes Adam's talents and sees he can be a valuable asset to Chancellor. With the help of Colin they make a coup d'etat in not only freeing Adam but also hiring him away Newman and send him off on an exciting international business venture in Africa or something with Chelsea being back at home supportive but doubful at the same time. 3. Adam is freed after the missing diary pages found but is horrified once he realizes that Chloe had helped Victor into doing him into jail. Extremely haunted by Deila's death and for fear of ruining everything else for himself and others he suffers a breakdown and he leaves Chelsea either a "Dear Joan" letter or a message of mixed signals. 4. Chloe confesses to Chelsea she helped Victor jail but she finally forgives Adam. So in turn Chloe and Chelsea are the ones to spring Adam in jail as it is one last great con for Chelsea. However Chloe and Chelsea have covered their tracks extremely well. Chelsea uses occasional business trips under the guise of Chelsea 2.0 to visit Adam across the globe. Whenever Adam is finally caught up with he is cleared by Chloe's testimony as well as the prison guard's who clearly remembers Adam thinking he was Victor and is let off scott free.
