  1. LOL at the ridiculous Ben Platt finally getting called out:

      Ben Platt's executive producer dad couldn't buy any worse set of reviews

      ‘Dear Evan Hansen’ adaptation is ‘a total misfire,’ ‘one of the worst movie-musicals ever made,’ critics say

      @YRfan23 Didn’t Nathan Hastings die on 8/19/96 as well? I remember it was a Friday when he flatlined abruptly in front of Olivia.

      It might have been 8/16/96 which was a Friday! I think the episode is in the vault in English and German! :)

      One of the best things to happen to AW!  

  3. RIP Markie Post 😔

  4. The people who comment on SON’s Facebook page clearly and obviously don’t post on the SON boards and probably never have. 🤢

      LOL aint that the truth!

  5. JFP to be interviewed again? Didn’t we have one last year? I can already the hear the spin “Ya I killed off Maureen but I didn’t realize it would be bad! I didn’t kill Frankie Frame blah blah blah oh and I think Josh Griffith and Chuck Pratt were great at Y&R!!!” 🙃

      I'm surprised she grew her hair out a bit and doesn't have the Liza Minelli bob cut anymore. 

    4. AbcNbc247

      AbcNbc247

      It actually looks better then the short hair.

       

      I wonder if there was a reason why they completely glossed over her time at GH

  6. After seeing a headline on a 1993 SOW mag about Days being rumored to be headed to ABC how many times did we hear rumors about Days moving to another network in the late 90’s and again in the 00’s? 

  7. Goutman & Brian Frons refused interview requests about the soaps? Sounds like they’re haunted....

      Goutman disturbs me a lot more than Frons in so many ways as well, although his arrogance is what also destroyed his career. He’s now divorced and lost  in academia I had just wondered if he was bitter lol. 
       

      As for Frons everything he did at ABC is now completely gone leaving him no legacy whatsoever except for canceling AMC & OLTL. I had assumed he was bitter too.

    3. NothinButAttitude

      NothinButAttitude

      Not surprised. Both of them are cowards. 

       

      However, if they were to grow spines and interview, I want it to be by someone who isn't scared to hold their feet to the fire. 

    4. Liberty City

      @NothinButAttitude I would hope someone like Michael Logan or even Carolyn Hinsey, the latter of which we know wouldn't hold a thing back.

  8. CBS’ and NBC’s 2021-22 schedules they released unveiled look so dismal and hollow.

      A good article about how risk-averse the networks have become:

      It's also what happens when you nix most of your current programming for new pilots.

    4. KMan101

      KMan101

      Way too many Chicago, NCIS, etc. shows. And we've already circled back around to CSI: Vegas. Didn't they milk CSI to death already? lol

       

      They're both playing it very very safe

       

      I used to be all over upfronts and fall shows and schedules but it's been several years now and my interest has waned. I also often choose to watch reruns of Golden Girls and Mama's Family over current programming ... LMAO

  9. A QAF reboot with today’s Davies at the helm? Ugh it better not turn out to be a Cucumber 2.0 🥴

  10. Peanut butter banana pancakes, falling off a cliff during a photo shoot, going comatose after getting hit in the head with a biscuit, and the once favorite son turned villainous rapist to fake his death? 2007 was lousy all the around, thanks for the unwarranted reminder today Days 😝

      You know you are a certified Soap Fan when you immediately recognize almost every one of those references.

       

      (Who went comatose after being hit in the head with a biscuit?) 

    2. soapfan770

      soapfan770

      Lol the biscuit was Victoria on Y&R during the Clear Springs debacle. She was supposed to be hit by falling debris instead it looked like someone threw a biscuit at her.

    3. Cat

      Cat

      Omg Clearsprings! LML's November sweeps opus/tribute to Lotus Point! What a flop that was.

  11. Whatever happened to the SON member who posted a shirtless pic of himself several years back? Its funny I don't remember his user name at all except for one sarcastic post by a user asking "why are you shirtless?"

      @Khanoh I had forgotten about him. He did have a pic of himself shirtless on his avatar. He hasn't posted in a long time.

  12. Happy Thanksgiving fellow SONers!!! Stay safe and healthy! Today is a great day to go back and listen to Mac Cory, Bob Hughes, and Tom Horton give their wisdom!

  13. Thudley and his doll story on B&B 🙈🙈🙈

      kalbir

      Is Bradley turning B&B into Passions?

  14. I can’t believe it has been ten years today we said farewell to Oakdale. 

  15. Sounds like the Archieverse shows are being cancelled one by one. I tried to like and watch the Sabrina Netflix series but there was something off-putting about it.

      Agreed there’s a couple hacks running the asylum over there, especially with Bertlanti being another Ryan Murphy just on a bit smaller scale. Love Simon took off the heat from him that he rightly deserves.

      I really liked Sabrina. But i'm fine with it lasting 4 seasons. I'm really sad Katy Keane was cancelled after only one season. It was sweet and charming. Love the friendships between the characters. Never bothered with Riverdale. 

    4. soapfan770

      soapfan770

      Was a bit surprised to hear Katy Keene get the boot the CW should have really aired it after Riverdale but since Nancy Drew did well in that spot I guess they didn’t want to bother to move it at all.

  16. Thudley won for Best Writing? 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  17. My heart breaks for our entire country right now, there are no words. 

  18. Ryan Murphy now wants to reboot Glee with Ben Platt? What a disaster waiting to happen.

      Haha 😂. It’s funny Murphy is telling folks he wants a do over pilot and wished he had Platt’s talents back in 2009. They way RM was swooning over Platt it wouldn’t surprise me if they slept together. 

    3. DRW50

      DRW50

      Based on his body of work, I guess that would have been mediocre for about 2 minutes and a traumatizing experience for the other 8. 

    4. KMan101

      LOL. I don't get the Platt obsession. I like him and all but meh. And double MEH to a Glee reboot. 

  19. Noah Galvin announcing he’s dating Ben Platt. The breakup will probably provide us fodder for years to come.

      @DRW50 Yeah I saw it was getting mixed reviews about it being a mess. I wonder if Netflix is second guessing their deal with Murphy? 
       

      @Errol Thanks for expanding on that! I had watched the first ep but haven’t had the chance to see the rest yet. 

    3. victoria foxton

      victoria foxton

      @DRW50 I thought Hollywood was meh. With a really good cast. And lots of hot guys. The writing was lackluster. I did love Rock & Archie. It's a weird feel good, alternate timeline universe tale. 

    4. All My Shadows

      All My Shadows

      The Politician, in true Ryan Murphy fashion, tried entirely too hard to be too much all at once, and it was a big ass mess.

  20. Still can’t believe JER wrote a story about Doug & Julie’s tiger attacking Tony(or I guess Andre?) DiMera in the same manner as Roy Horn’s attack. Too soon? 

  21. RIP David Schramm!

  23. Primetime demo ratings for live/same day broadcasts are so bad that getting at least a 1.0 in 18-49 is called success. 

    1. NothinButAttitude

      NothinButAttitude

      Maybe it is time that they scrap or retool the Nielsens. 

  24. Both the Lucy Show and Here's Lucy are both on Hulu, both are just surreal to watch. Here's Lucy almost feels out of its place and time. Not sure how both lasted so long except I suppose people were so use to see some variation of Lucille Ball air on Monday nights between 1951-1974.

      Both the Lucy Show and Here's Lucy eventually lost their original formats, and depended far too much on guest stars.  Both shows eventually became "Lucy Meets . . ."    Lucy Meets John Wayne, Liz Taylor, Jack Benny, and any other movie star you can imagine.  

    3. Soaplovers

      From what I've read, she only did the Lucy Show as a way to save her and Desi's studio Desilu... and the actress who played her teen daughter was popular... and I guess Lucille Ball threatened to retire if CBS didn't fire the actress.  Sometimes backstage is more interesting than the show... plus, a misunderstanding over salary caused a rift between Ball and Vance.

    4. DRW50

      DRW50

      Ball is one of those celebrities who the more I learned about them the less interested I became in watching their shows.
