  1. Rumor is that Nia's joining the show next season so we shall see...
  2. RIP Celeste Holm

    1. DRW50


      What a long, successful career. Sad to see her go, and that her last years were so unhappy.

    2. Mr. Vixen
  3. Congrats to Amanda Setton for booking a series regular gig on The Mindy Project! I love it when actually talented soapsters go primetime.

  4. Maybe they could snatch Star Jones off of that annoying segment that they're trying to make us like. Of course they'd kill each other by November sweeps, but it would be worth it.
  5. I remember on the VH1 special they did on the show they showed that moment as the "decline" of the show, and I was a little defensive because it was one of the few entertaining moments of that interminable season.
  6. Well, the whole period between '92 and '96 was an interesting time for late-night TV. Letterman had moved to CBS, Fox was trying to get into the late-night game and then failed with Chevy Chase, ABC was not only looking for a post-Nightline show but also something to compete with SNL.
  7. Aw, I didn't see. I didn't know the Dobsons were involved too. It would certainly have been fun to watch. In the same article, it mentioned that Aaron Spelling was developing similar late-night formats at both ABC and Fox.
  8. Broadcasting and Cable March 6, 1995 Having established a strong Monday-Friday late-night lineup rather quickly, after years of almost comic futility, CBS hopes to have a project in place in early 1996. Currently in development is a one-hour weekly, scripted show that has been described as a soap opera in the vein of Melrose Place, specifically for a young, late-night audience. Given that the project is slated for an after-prime time airing, the show is expected to push the boundaries in terms of content and language. That the project will be more risque than the typical prime time soap is further evidenced by the fact that Zalman King, executive producer of Showtime's steamy Red Shoe Diaries, will serve as co-executive producer on the show. Also overseeing the project is Bill Bell Jr., president, Bell/Phillip Television Productions Inc. CBS executives are expecting to see a bible of the project within the next three months. Thus far, no acting talent has been attached to the show.
  9. Good; I was wondering when they were coming back. It seems really late though, especially since it started to beat the original BBW in the ratings near the end. Once it turned from everyone vs. Draya to everyone vs. Jackie it got way more entertaining and fun to watch.
  10. Michelle looks far more natural now than she did a couple of years back. Her face in Stardust was tighter than a tin drum.
  11. The only two roles I could have seen her playing would have been Grace or Ivy.
  12. SMG totally just confessed/confirmed the Susan Lucci feud rumors on WWHL.

      I'm tired of the delicately worded references to it though, I want examples, lol. "Liiike, well... okay. There was this one time when the director asked me to [blank] and Susan didn't know, so she [blank]..." You know what I mean?

      If I had to guess in my head, I'd assume SMG had a bit of an ego and that clashed with SuLu's ego for obvious reasons. But deep down I think SMG was probably turned off by how SuLu tends to...behave. I don't know, maybe it's just me, but she seems super fake.

    3. DRW50


      So does SMG. SMG also seems to have bad relationships with a lot of co-stars.

  13. I don't remember when she started, but I know she ended in late '90 because Kelly Ripa was one of her last hires.

    VH1: Mob Wives

    So it's safe to assume this season is going to be everyone vs. each other?
  15. Neither look like they've had any work done. Kassie is obviously someone who takes care of themselves, probably a non-smoker who stays out of the sun for the most part.
  16. Last weekend I cut my foot on glass and this weekend I'm pretty sure I broke my left pinky finger. I obviously am accident-prone.

  17. "Finally" randomly started playing somewhere in my place. I first started dancing (because I love that song), then I got worried. What if there's a gay ghost in my house? This is way too American Horror Story for me.

    1. DRW50


      Ask them to play some Sonia.

  18. I just realized a dark, dark thing today. I actually prefer LML's Y&R to MAB's. Yeah, I said it!

    1. aMLCproduction


      Me two. I always have

    2. Cat


      I am LML's #1 hater. I thought she helped to hasten the decline of the show. She set in place the excessive Phyllis love (and Gloria love) and the Newmans ruled the show while the Abbotts were dismantled. But compared with Hogan + MAB? Yeah, I think it has gotten to the point where LML's version, overall, may have been better executed.

  19. Louise Sorel almost left Days of Our Lives to take the role of Vanessa on All My Children, but decided to stay with Days. Esta TerBlanche auditioned for Allie Doyle before being cast as Gillian. Beth Ehlers, Maura Tierney and Tea Leoni all screen-tested for the role of Cecily Davidson on AMC. Tierney also read for the role of Hayley on Santa Barbara.
  20. LA Law was in the crapper by then (kind of like how all the CSIs are now), so maybe it was best.
  21. I'd assume so, but ABC Daytime was making a lot of odd decisions around this time, so who knows. LOL. In an interview Debbi Morgan did with TV Guide when she joined Loving, she said that she chose Loving over a series regular role on LA Law.
  22. Sherry Stringfield initially auditioned for the Mindy Lewis recast (eventually taken by Kimberley Simms) before getting the role of Blake on GL. Not exactly "They Almost Became"s, but I thought this was interesting Both Finola Hughes and Jane Elliot turned down the chance to join Port Charles around the time Debbi Morgan left but before Kimberlin Brown came in.
  23. The role of Chris Stamp on All My Children was originally written with Wayne Northrop in mind. When he turned the part down, both Robert Hays and Brian Kerwin screen-tested before Jack Scalia was cast.
  24. In the early 90s, Paramount was planning a syndicated wheel of 4 30-minute soaps, each soap airing in a telenovela format of 13 weeks sharing the same timeslot. Paramount's hope was to shoot each show on location in a different city/locale and to cut costs by pursuing co-production deals with international broadcasters and US station groups (Tribune, Group W and the NBC O&Os were said to have been approached in this regard). The plans sadly died off when they merged with Viacom some time later.
