On today’s Daytime Confidential podcast Luke, Jillian, Regan and Melodie discuss the latest in All My Children, The Bold and the Beautiful, Days of Our Lives, General Hospital and The Young and the Restless storylines and news, including:
It was a busy week of All My Children news. At the beginning of the week Deadline reported that All My Children could be in danger of cancellation, but by the end of the week actors were telling fans the rumors are not true. When a primetime series is in danger of being cancelled all the major entertainment bibles report the news, often inspiring fans to get motivated to try and help save their show. Why is there a double standard for discussing reports that a soap may be cancelled? We all know the genre is struggling, but can’t such reports help motivate soap fans to try and save their soap?
Taylor tries to cause problems for Brooke and Ridge on The Bold and the Beautiful. Does Taylor need a home in Napa Valley, because she’s been doing a lot of whining lately? Katie isn’t happy with Bill. Steffy had better watch out.
Will Days of Our Lives do a gay storyline? If they do, should DAYS pursue a Chad and Will pairing or should they explore another couple? Luke can’t believe he’s beginning to enjoy EJ and Taylor like Jamey and Jillian do. What does everyone think of Dario?
The person responsible for baby Jake’s death has been revealed. Would there have been more long term storyline potential if it had been Carly instead of Luke who was responsible? Jillian and Melodie debate whether Robin or Lisa would take each other out in a fight. Find out whose Luke and Regan come down on. Tyler Christopher is leaving General Hospital as Nikolas Cassadine. Elizabeth Taylor, the original Helena Cassadine, passes away.
One Life to Live is telling a ripped from the headlines bullying story. The show aired a suicide prevention PSA, which has Regan and Melodie worried about Shane’s fate. Luke loves David and Dorian together again, but wants it to last. Nora gets most of her memory back as Rex closes in on the identity of daddy Ford’s killer.
