  1. Just stumbled upon this via a Twitter post. It's a podcast interview someone conducted with JFP earlier this year. She talks a lot about her start in daytime and the various shows she's Executive Produced. https://anchor.fm/soapoperaroyalty/episodes/JILL-FARREN-PHELPS-ebr1bj For those who don't want to listen, here's a quick recap of some main points I wrote down: She says she started as a casting assistant at GL before became a production assistant there Then she went over to GH to became the musical director at GH, and then SB - and then moved up to producing at SB Talks a lot about Cruz and Eden at SB in the beginning She says her Emmy wins at SB were due to SB being a "different" show that didn't "play by any rules" She says that she thinks a story like Eden's rape on SB could never be done today She talks about Maureen Bauer's death on GL - she takes responsibility for it, but says she "researched" this decision a lot, and the "research" said the audience was indifferent to the character. She says the writing of the story made people care "too much about the character," so when they killed her, the audience was "out of its mind". Goes on to say this was a "teaching" moment for her - IMO, she tries to victimize herself here a bit, and the backlash from Maureen's death still stings her in some way Continues to say she didn't kill Frankie Frame on AW as she was already out the door - she doesn't say her name, but pretty much blames Margaret DePriest for this and the way it was written She defends the John/Felicia affair story on AW... On OLTL, she says Erika Slezak and her had a lot of "trust" between them Talks a bit about her Emmy wins and what they mean... Not much was said about her GH tenure strangely, but the interviewer didn't have any specific questions She said Hollywood Heights was brutal work, but she had fun (that's where she and the interviewer worked together) On Y&R, she said the mandate from CBS was to "bring it into this century." She said CBS and Sony felt the show, its look, and its sound were "outdated"; She praised the Delia death story... She says the decline in soaps over the past 20 years is due to people having life changes (more women going to work, people losing the habit); She says the search for "younger viewers" did a disservice to the people actually watching the soaps Typical OJ excuse for the loss of the soap audiences also talked about She says loved all of the shows she EP'd, but there was one she wouldn't name that she said she didn't love as much due to where she was in her life... She singled-out the beginning of her time at GL as a piece of work she was particularly proud of - the writers (Curlee/Demorest/Reilly/Broderick) were't mentioned by name but she praised them as "extraordinary"; She LOVED the Blackout week on GL She says Gloria Monty never remembered her name and called her "Jane" when she was musical director at GH, bur she learned a lot from watching her She praised Steven Bochco a little too much and says she tried to bring things she watched on his shows on the shows she produced... Says she would love to bring Santa Barbara back if she could bring back any of the cancelled soaps she worked on She felt like she had unfinished business at AW and didn't get to do a lot of what she wanted there; She called JER's (or 'Jimmy Reilly' as she affectionately called him) work at DAYS "brilliant", but she said she refused pressure from NBC to steer AW into the direction he had taken DAYS in She says she would like to be remembered for being "fearless" and "courageous" and for encouraging others to be that way, and also being a "good boss"
  2. So...February Sweeps are over. Or was it sleeps? A B C D F I am still catching up on GH, but I've enjoyed the week of the reveal so far. Now that might change once I get to the fallout. So I would give it a solid B since it's been a while since I watched GH. Y&R...hmmm...judging on one episode as I'm behind I would say a C. There were just too many people running around...none of whom I was interested in. But I still have EB's anniversary episodes to sit and watch. How was your shows last month?
  3. Well, I admit to being interested since some of the threads here really got some traction this month. So...how was May Sweeps? From where I'm standing it seems like the main stories were... Y&R: Adam's Return GH: The Nurse Ball B&B: Wyatt's triangle, the Baby Switch DAYS: 'Nicole''s return. Discuss!!!
  4. Well, it's over with...so...How would you grade May Sweeps? And bonus for me since I'm waaay behind...so Ron Carlivati finally have a bad May Sweeps over at DAYS? As for me... Y&R Judging by what I've seen...B. From the JT fallout to Jack's paternity to Hevon/Shick, there was stuff going on. And I have to admit that I have been binge watching again more than I have since SS was still writing. We know how I felt about the JT/Victoria story so I will not talk about it again. Nor the Jack rewrite...but I do tune in. And what are your thoughts?
  5. Well, since it is pretty much done. How would you grade February Sweeps? A, B, or a non-grade?
  6. At least she gets airtime!!!!! Happy Anniversary, Barbara Jean Merry Christmas Port Charles circa late 80s Discuss
  7. Well...November Sweeps are pretty much over. So...how did your soap do? I for one can't wait to hear about MY's first sweeps at Y&R myself. DISH!!!
  8. So got the new SOD and found it interesting that May 9 is going to be the day where... DAYS: What happened with Aidan is revealed. GH: Jason's memories (with Kim McC appearance) happens. I read the Aidan reason and they explained well. Now the Jason thing...well... Thoughts on either...I'm a bit behind. PS. Lawrence Saint VIctor has an interview inside as well. Haven't read it yet so don't know if he was asked where he was on B&B...yet. will read for sure to see what he is up to.
  9. Well, now that it's over, how would you grade the November Sweeps of all the soaps? Or are you really thinking sleeps? Why? Why not?
  10. So...how did your soap do overall this year? A, B, C, D, Z???
