  1. Guiding Light discussion thread

    20 years ago this week (starting at 4:36). Original airdate was Friday October 3, 1997 according to an old online recap site. This was the scene shown from Cynthia Watros's Emmy reel during the 1998 Daytime Emmy broadcast. I'm thinking the other episode submitted was the witness stand breakdown from June 1997. Watch those two scenes and you'll see why the 1998 Lead Actress race ended up being the biggest upset ever.
  2. When B&B began, Ronn Moss was 35 and Clayton Norcross was 32, so they weren't that far apart in age. The recast Thornes were a good amount younger than RM; Jeff Trachta was 8 years younger and Winsor Harmon was 11 years younger. Bradley Bell must have forgotten that Ridge was the older brother when he recast Ridge with Thorsten Kaye, as TK is actually 2 1/2 years younger than WH. So with Ingo Rademacher coming on board as Thorne, at least Ridge will now look like the older brother LOL.

    10 years ago today (September 7), the final NBC episode aired.

    Maybe JFP's plan was to bring on Marcy Walker to pair her with Josh, then have Kim Zimmer return shortly after, creating a Tangie/Josh/Reva triangle. To think if the Josh/Tangie pairing took off, we might not have gotten Annie the following year.

    Rick Hearst left in 1996. JFP was already gone by then.
  6. Guiding Light discussion thread

    JFP brought in a good number of Santa Barbara alums to GL during her run: Vincent Irizarry, Justin Deas, Marj Dusay, Marcy Walker. Am I missing anyone? I know JFP was around when Alan was recast but surprisingly that role went to a virtual unknown instead of a known soap actor. I believe JFP was already gone when Amanda was recast and that role also went to a virtual unknown. I've read some big soap names were considered when Amanda was recast in 1995; among them were Kimberlin Brown, Crystal Chappell, Nancy Lee Grahn, Lauren Koslow, Lisa Peluso.
  7. 20 years ago this week I know one of the episodes from this week was used for Eileen Davidson's 1998 Emmy reel as the clip was shown on the broadcast. I don't know what the other episode was though.
  8. That was 20 years ago this week. I can't find the ratings for June 23-27, 1997 online anywhere so I don't know what the exact difference between Y&R and Days was. The ratings for the previous week (June 16-20, 1997) are on this board and there was a 1 point gap between Y&R and Days that week.

    20 years ago this month: From recaps I found online, the exact airdate was either June 19 or June 20.
  10. As The World Turns Discussion Thread

    And also half of the 1987 acting Emmy awards: Larry Bryggman (Lead Actor), Gregg Marx (Supporting Actor), Martha Byrne (Younger Actress). I think 1987 was the biggest Emmy haul for ATWT.
  11. Daytime Emmys 2017 Discussions

    Scott Clifton is the first Lead Actor winner born in the 1980s. Surprisingly, he isn't the youngest Lead Actor winner at the time of his win. Darnell Williams was 30 when he won Lead Actor in 1985. Only three Lead Actor winners were under age 35 at the time of their wins: Darnell Williams, Billy Miller (he turned 35 in 2014, after his Lead Actor win that year), Scott Clifton.
  12. Search For Tomorrow Discussion Thread

    I once read an interview with Bill Bell where he mentioned CBS approached him as early as 1977 about creating a second show for the network's daytime lineup. Do you think CBS was planning to replace Search for Tomorrow with a second Bill Bell show back then? As we all know, Bill Bell didn't have a second show ready until 10 years later. Even if CBS kept Search for Tomorrow, I still think CBS would've ended it once Bill Bell had a second show ready to go.
  13. 2017 Emmy Nominations

    If Heather Tom wins, she'll tie Erika Slezak with the most Emmy wins by an actress. Erika also holds the record for most Lead Actress wins (6), followed by Susan Flannery (4), Kim Zimmer (4), Helen Gallagher (3), and Maura West (3). Peter Bergman scored his 20th nomination. He's one nomination away from tying Susan Lucci's record for most nominations overall. Peter and Susan are tied for most consecutive nominations (13).

    The new spelling is like the champagne, so I wonder if the pronunciation will be too.
