  1. When would Dina and John have agreed to this? Ashley was a young girl when Dina departed. Would they have the foresight to do this? Why would she be singled out for this? Dina never mentioned this on any other visit? It wasn't referred to in John's will? What special gift was Traci left?

  3. The Doctors

    Guess her contract was coming up for renewal and it was assumed she'd continue. Maybe her reps had intimated that and negotiations were underway etc... and then Julia announced she wasn't renewing. Don't know why they didn't just recast...

  5. Y&R October 2018 Discussion Thread

    We can quibble about Ashley's motivation/actions but I think Eileen was Aplus down the line. She made the whole thing work. Really Jack - throwing a chair??
  6. OLTL Tribute Thread

    June 26 1992 Billy came out to Andrew, so I guess that was the beginning of the story. The AIDS quilt was displayed late August
  7. AMC Tribute Thread

    The shooting on Cutting Edge was Th and Fri Feb 8&9 1996.
  8. The Doctors

    Anna Suart/Toni seemed to be in limbo her last few months on the show. I wonder what the plans were for her character and the circumstances of her departure? She was unhappy so did she leave when her contract was up or was it a mutual decision? Mike hooks up with Sara Dancy...was that the original plan for that character?
  9. Days: RIP Peggy McCay

    Peggy was Youn They mean Young Marrieds on ABC. She began pretty much when daytime TV did with Love of Life in 1951.
  10. Juliet Jones was one of a few attempts by syndicators in the 50's to get a soap of the ground. They all failed because of economics. There was no videotape at the time so they had to be filmed (the only alternative would be kinescopes of live performances which would be poor quality) Film was much more expensive.Hence,why soaps went to tape in the 60's once it was feasible to do so. Unlike self contained dramas they could not be rerun repeatedly. Local stations were rerunning movies and other shows over and over to great profit.

    Y&R began its unbroken run at #1 after Days hit #1 with the Steve & Kayla wedding in July 88.

  13. Y&R Casting New Female

    Marcus Welby was ABC. CBS also had Chicago Hope that was pretty succesful and Medical Center way back in the 70's. Y&R had doctors (Snapper,Scott, Casey,Olivia ) but never any major hospital drama unless a character was admitted.
  14. Looking back...Primetime Ratings from the 80's

    Wk 3 of the 87/88 Season. NBC had baseball from Tues thru Sunday which meant their blockbuster Th and Sat shows didn't air (except for Cosby) A few shows saw a bump in their ratings as those viewers not into baseball sampled something different.

  15. Will & Grace Revival

    Dreadful episode. The subplots were inane and the whole balance was thrown off by having Grace interact with Noah only. Karen and Jack didn't share I scene. His character was unpleasant yet we're obviously expected to buy into the non existent chemistry between the two. I did laugh at the face cream antics but the rest of the jokes were pretty dire.
