Thanks for continuing to post these, FrenchFan!

Great stuff.

On Y&R Phillip was helping Lorie with her novel-What was that about?

It was sort of a thinly veiled "fictionalized" version of what happened between her and Leslie over the previous year. Leslie and Brad talk about it in a 1975 episode that's online.

Ann realizes that adopting a child cannot make up for the death of the little girl she could not help. Nick feels Ann is waiting for Paul and Margo’s marriage to break up. Linc tells Kitty that Ann still loves Paul. Even Kate tells Joe she does not believe in Paul’s mariage. Margo’s daughter, Claudette arrives and tells she left her husband Spencer Montgomery because she was not happy. Margo is sure the Montgomerys drove Claudette away as she was below Spencer’s social station. She also covers up Claudette’s confusion when Paul refers to Margo’s visit last summer and makes Claudette promise never to tell Paul she actually had a facelift in New York and did not visit her daughter.

GAH, I hate the fact that there is so little written about Claudette. She was on the show for a couple of years, but no one seems to know anything about her besides the fact that she was Margo's daughter and that she had been married to a man named Montgomery (presumably no relation to Jack and Travis).

Here what was written about Lorie and Phillip Chancellor for December 1974:

"Brock invites Lorie to help decorate the tree. She flirts with Phillip discretely, saying she's considering another book, possibly one about a business tycoon, but she'd have to do a lot of research. In his usual generous way, Phillip offers his help. Suspicious of Lorie's attentions to Brock, especially after Brock says Lorie's book is about them in Paris, Kay encourages Brock to see more of Jill and makes him take her to dinner."

Thank you Cedric for clearing that up.Bill Bell was known for hinting at possible story directions(eg Phillip & Lorie)and then not following up.

These synopses are great,particularly for The Doctors as a lot of the storyline details have been a bit of a mystery.For example,I had seen the characters of Rex and Iris in cast lists ,but never seen them mentioned in summaries.

Also,it seems the character of Mona was not always onscreen although she has been listed as from 73 on.

Thanks again.

In January 1975, CBS had 6 daytime dramas (Love of Life, Y&R, Search for Tomorrow, As the World Turns, Guiding Light, The Edge of Night) and 6 game shows (The Joker's Wild, Gambit, Now You See It, The Price is Right, Match Game, Tattletales) on their schedule. Hard to believe that nearly 35 years later there's only two of the daytime dramas and one of the game shows left.

I think that most soaps going to I hr format was ultimately one of the factors that has damaged daytime.

It affected the shows themselves negatively,required too much time committment from viewers, and lead to a lack of flexibility in scheduling.

Marty is deeply upset when Maggie has no feeling in her legs after the surgery. He is grateful when Alice can bring Maggie’s hope and faith. Laura realizes she is Maggie’s biggest fear and she tells them Bill and she are expecting a new child. Michael is deeply hurt when he learns the news from Maggie and asks Alice if he can stay with Tom and her but she refuses, thinking he has to stay with Laura. Furious, he moves in with Trish but they promise each other there won’t be sex between them. Trish says Michael she moves out of Jeri’s because she is uncomfortable with Jack. Meanwhile, Jack promises Jeri he won’t tell Trish of her past.

I would give almost anything to see this all playout!

This makes me cream my pants, for real. There is no doubt in my mind that 1975 was the peak of daytime television. Games and soaps. That's what daytime should be all about, with syndicated talk shows in the morning and afternoon.
