Why 'One Life' should bring back 'World Turns's Roger Howarth opposite the "real" Todd, Trevor St. John! Plus: Is Téa really dead?
Is 'Y&R' must-see daytime TV again?
Plus: Next week's viewing cheat week and last week's reviews!

Update:

THIS JUST IN —
Mandatory One Life meeting in the works!
According to several on-set sources, a mandatory meeting has been set for all One Life to Live contract players this Thursday, Aug. 26. Hopefully, it's good news.

And give their characters a double teaming of the last scenes of Capitol and Soap.

He's got to be kidding me with that Y&R [!@#$%^&*]. What "character driven drama" is he referring to?

He lost me at the part about TSJ being the best leading man in all of daytime.

And my God, does he sit around obsessing about OLTL all day long? With nothing else to do? I mean, really, where did this "OMG Robin Thicke and Gloria Loring should appear on OLTL!" sh!t come from? I know he feels in adequate if he doesn't pimp OLTL just enough...

He lost you? I'm wondering what the heck he's drinking.

He does obsess on OLTL and I wish he would quit because he's the one that starts those cancellation rumors that everyone seem to soak up like a sponge. Not saying it can't happen, but I'd rather hear facts from the from the front of the horse than wild guesses and rhetoric from it's rear end.

I would love for Roger Howarth to return to OLTL, but they'd have to come up with something really good for it to pay off.

If Roger Howarth were to come back to OLTL would the shows most devoted fans accept him as anything other than Todd?

Nelson don't encourage Maria with your praise of out of nowhere plot points.

Nelson put down the crack pipe and step away slowly. Roger is "REAL" Todd, Trevor plays Walker Lawrence, always has

The real Todd died sometime in 1994.

He needs another interview maybe.

What they should do if Roger ever did come back is make it so that "Todd" Trevor's version is really Walker, who was brainwashed into believing he was Todd by Mitch. I'm sure RC can come up with some reason for it.

I can't see people accepting Roger as anything but Todd if he returned

Or just Roman I and Roman II, the OLTL Years. And just as much of a mess, I'm sure.

Thank our lucky stars that Nelson "if I was head-writing" Branco doesn't write for any soap...

Howarth as Ross Rayburn (disguised as Todd's original face)? As an opportunity for Marty to hook-up with Howarth's character? He thinks that's genius? Some sick taste there, to say the least... Then to say that OLTL "can't" make Howarth be the real Todd - because TSJ's Todd "recalled" the rape? Oh, of course not - because soaps never ask anyone to suspend disbelief. B)

Branco also makes comments that seem incoherent: How could Ron Carlivati's former legal career be inspired by Tea Delgado? He pursued that career LONG before the Tea character was ever introduced...

I'm not a fan of hers, but I can't believe he has the nerve to throw a stone at Jean Passanante with the ideas he just spouted out.

To those who made statemtents about Branco like "drunk" and "on crack," I think I agree with you... literally. His articles make him come off, more and more each week, like someone who isn't thinking / writing with a full deck.

So "Miss Nellie" just updated that there's a mandatory cast meeting at OLTL Thursday.

What could it be?

OLTL Canceled?
OLTL moving out West?
Craft Servies Eliminated as a pre-emptive strike.

I don't see OLTL moving, cancellation? Maybe, but doubtful. Could be anything, IF Nelson has his facts straight

I wonder if this is about the 20 episodes being slashed from each ABC soap?

A mandatory meeting for OLTL's cast makes me think budget/salary cuts.

I really hope it's not being canceled, I know it probably doesn't have that many years left, but don't want it to go.

I wish it was, so it could get an HD upgrade.

I doubt it is about the slashing of 20 episodes if AMC/GH aren't having a meeting.

I doubt it is being cancelled, yes because of Kim Zimmer. Why bring her on, and cancel the show? And plus the 20 episode thing hasn't went into affect yet, so can't be that.
