  1. You know... I was thinking this at first, but I think I'd prefer it be just Don & Kathy, and have Eileen do one later. Much as I respect Eileen Fulton, she does have a habit of enjoying being in the spotlight. If the three of them were on together, I'm afraid we wouldn't have much of a chance to hear from Kathryn. I, like many of you, am delighted to hear Don & Kathy will be on. I loved Don in the first one, and I just love Kathryn as well.
  2. I guess it depends on your definition of "classic", but I was always surprised that Richard Roundtree's short stint on ATWT as Oliver Travers wasn't a much bigger deal.
  3. I don't think I've seen it mentioned yet, but I liked how Christopher Tavani (a young Luke Snyder, 2001-2005) was in the chatbox for the Martha/Liz livestream. Alan even called out one of his responses, but I believe I saw his name pop up a few times.
  4. They way I understood it, she meant Jake Silbermann. Either that or Karl Girolamo. She said that the actor playing her grandson (THAT would be Van) told this other actor something along the lines of "it's okay, it's just how she approaches the scene" when he saw the other actor's confusion. Luke and Will never had many scenes together, and the repeated mention of the gay storyline would point to Jake or Karl.
  5. I don't know why, but Jennifer Ferrin is the first guest on these (the ATWT ones at least) that actually surprises me. I always felt like she'd left her soap days behind her. I always loved her Jennifer, though, so it's a pleasant surprise for sure. I'm a huge Will & Gwen fan, so I'm glad to see Jen L. in there as well, I just wish JLS would show up as a surprise guest.
  6. I agree. And precisely because Faith had been plus size, and struggling with her body image, it made absolutely zero sense to cast Valentina De Angelis in the role.
  7. I actually didn't... so thank you very much for clueing me in! I just can't believe how many of these connections we continue to be able to make, absolutely love it. Kayden wrote "one of the very few ATWT episodes that I have". Would you happen to know if there are any others around? Since the video's unlisted, the channel shows no videos for me. -- I would also like to ask for help on something in this thread. There is a video on both Oakdalian ("Christmas 1989") and AsTheWorldStillTurns' ("ATWT 12 25 89") channels. That particular version of the episode comes from a re-airing in the late 90s (as can be seen in the doctored end credits). My assumption is that Oakdalian uploaded it first, as Christmas 1989, and AsTheWorldStillTurns assumed that it must be the December 25 episode. However, in the Full Episode List thread, I have now gathered four different leads that all state that the December 25, 1989 episode was pre-empted. Presumably, then, the episode in fact aired one airdate earlier or later. Normally, I would guess earlier (that's what they usually seem to do with holiday episodes), but since December 25, 1989 was a Monday, the next airdate was actually closer. Long story short: the episode aired on EITHER Friday December 22, 1989 OR Tuesday December 26, 1989. I'm curious to see if anyone can help dating it properly.
  8. Wow, thank you so much... again! Some great sources I wasn't aware of! -- 2001 section updated
  9. New pre-emption confirmed: February 15, 1988: NBA Game Which leaves only 3 pre-emptions in this era... -- Thanks for passing these along. I was fully unaware of this amazing resource. Also, good job on your Y&R list. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one taking on this crazy challenge.
  10. I just found a second source hinting at a pre-emption for December 25, 1989. It looks like that is indeed the remaining pre-emption in that era and the episode on AsTheWorldStillTurns' channel is dated wrong. @Paul Raven I'm not sure if you can channel your search, but would you perhaps be able to confirm a pre-emption on December 25, 1989? 2003 section updated
  11. I can confirm that both 1991 episodes, as well as 2 out of 3 1993 episodes were not previously on YT. Adding them to the full episode list. I love finding channels like this. Seems like he's uncovered a box of old tapes and is uploading them. Here's to hoping this is not the last of it. Thanks for finding and sharing!
  12. Thanks for clearing that up! Speaking of Inaugurations... here's an overview of all 13 inaugurations that took place during ATWT's run: January 21, 1957 (Eisenhower's second term): pre-empted January 20, 1961 (Kennedy): pre-empted January 20, 1965 (Johnson's second term): pre-empted January 20, 1969 (Nixon): pre-empted August 9, 1974 (Ford): unknown January 20, 1977 (Carter): unknown January 20, 1981 (Reagan): unknown January 21, 1985 (Reagan's second term): unknown January 20, 1989 (Bush): unknown [listed regularly in one newspaper though] January 20, 1993 (Clinton): pre-empted January 20, 1997 (Clinton's second term): aired January 20, 2005 (Bush's second term): pre-empted January 20, 2009 (Obama): pre-empted -- 2007 section updated
  13. 1964 was a leap year and, as a result, January 1, 1965 was a Friday (which might still have been pre-empted) and January 1, 1966 was a Saturday. Did you mean Monday January 3, 1966 for the Cotton Bowl by any chance? [EDIT:] I just found an overview of Cotton Bowl broadcasts on wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Cotton_Bowl_Classic_broadcasters). Looks like CBS had the rights from 1958-1992 and 1996-1998. It also lists all the exact dates (especially the not-January-1 dates threw me off in the past). Since we already know that about 75% of these caused pre-emptions, I'm going to carefully assume that all of these impacted ATWT and put them on the list as pre-emptions, although I won't make them bold until we have hard evidence. Paul Raven, do you have any way of verifying that the January 1, 1960 episode was pre-empted? I had that one as airing based on the P&GTSC I mentioned yesterday, so if it was indeed pre-empted that would be the second strike against that resource. Fun fact: Based on this new info, it looks like 2004 was the ONLY year in the 54-year-history of the show that had a January 1 broadcast.
  14. That clears up the October 2 - December 10, 1991 era! Great work!
  15. This one is interesting, mostly because it confirms a fear I already had. There are a lot of scripts in the P&G Television Script Collection (http://digicoll.library.wisc.edu/cgi/f/findaid/findaid-idx?c=wiarchives;cc=wiarchives;view=text;rgn=main;didno=uw-whs-mss00784), but I wasn't really sure how to process them. It only gives begin and end dates for each folder, which means there is no telling which episodes may have been pre-empted in between. I figured at least the begin and end dates for each folder must have aired, so I had marked those (in the updates I am getting ready) as having aired. July 25, 1960 is the begin date for one of the folders, and, as such, had been marked as having aired. Now we know that's not true, but that means I can't trust any of those dates from this collection. Either it just doesn't account for pre-emptions (in which case the episode marked July 25 likely aired the next day), or maybe the dates don't even correspond to airdates at all, but reflect the dates the scripts were written or something. I just kills me that such a rich collection apparently exists, but I have absolutely NO info to work with from it. Either way, I'm really glad we caught this now, before I started relying too much on the P&GTSC dates as being accurate. Thanks as always, Paul Raven! -- 2008 section updated
  16. With the new info, we now know - or at least have strong leads - for 15 out of 19 pre-emptions in the December 9, 1986 - November 3, 1987 era, leaving 4 unknown pre-emptions. Let me first say, in the interest of full disclosure, that it is possible that any or all of those pre-emptions are unrelated to the Iran-Contra hearings, and occurred. However, since we have no leads and a lot of remaining question marks during the I-C hearings, it seems likely that the pre-emptions were due to the hearings. I have taken all 44 days of the I-C hearings, crossed off the ones that - based on @feuxdelamour's research - we are counting as semi-verified, as well as the days that we know ATWT aired and the days when no afternoon hearings occurred or were broadcasted. I am left with the below list of 15 dates that are the candidates for these 4 other pre-emptions. May 6, 1987: Iran-Contra Hearings Day 2 (CBS said it would carry at least the start of the hearings, although I assume that means the morning session) May 13, 1987: Iran-Contra Hearings Day 7 (no coverage planned, but break-in possible, depending on developments) May 14, 1987: Iran-Contra Hearings Day 8 (no coverage planned, but break-in possible, depending on developments) May 19, 1987: Iran-Contra Hearings Day 9 (no coverage planned, but break-in possible, depending on developments) May 27, 1987: Iran-Contra Hearings Day 12 (no coverage planned, but break-in possible, depending on developments) May 28, 1987: Iran-Contra Hearings Day 13 (no coverage planned, but break-in possible, depending on developments) May 29, 1987: Iran-Contra Hearings Day 14 (no coverage planned, but break-in possible, depending on developments) June 2, 1987: Iran-Contra Hearings Day 15 (no coverage planned, but break-in possible, depending on developments) June 3, 1987: Iran-Contra Hearings Day 16 (no coverage planned, but break-in possible, depending on developments) June 4, 1987: Iran-Contra Hearings Day 17 (no coverage planned, but break-in possible, depending on developments) June 8, 1987: Iran-Contra Hearings Day 19 (no coverage planned, but break-in possible, depending on developments) July 20, 1987: Iran-Contra Hearings Day 33 (ABC's day, but CBS could break-in, depending on developments) July 28, 1987: Iran-Contra Hearings Day 37 (NBC's day, but CBS could break-in, depending on developments) July 30, 1987: Iran-Contra Hearings Day 39 (ABC's day, but CBS could break-in, depending on developments; according to an unverified source, NBC's Santa Barbara was pre-empted on this day, so maybe developments were juicy?) July 31, 1987: Iran-Contra Hearings Day 40 (NBC's day, but CBS could break-in, depending on developments)
