On today’s super-sized Daytime Confidential podcast Luke Kerr, Jamey Giddens, Jillian Bowe and Melodie Aikels react to Brian Frons stepping down at ABC Daytime and Jill Farren Phelps being removed at General Hospital. The DC gang looks back on these two executives show-killing history and discusses the state they are leaving GH in. The DC crew then weighs in on the announcement that Frank Valentini and Ron Carlivati are taking over at ABC’s last remaining soap. What things could they do to signal to fans that a new day is dawning on Port Charles.
Jamey lays out which storylines should be rewritten immediately and which quadrangle could help spike ratings. Luke suggests an early sign to GH fans would be to announce the re-hiring of Lexi Ainsworth as Kristina. The DC gang explores which fan favorites should be brought back as soon as possible and debate which one One Life to Live actor or character they’d love to see make the jump to Port Charles.
Even though ABC soap news dominated the week, the DC gang discusses Bryan Dattilo being spotted on the Days of Our Lives set, Will’s coming out story and the fallout from EJ and Sami having sex. Jamey reveals which popular Salem resident he’d kill off and give Alison Sweeney a meaty storyline. The Bold and the Beautiful’s Katie isn’t happy that Steffy is circling Bill again. Is it time for Deacon to leave Genoa City and come to Los Angeles to help his daughter Hope fight Steffy? Is it time for Jackie to leave the fashion business?

The DC crew loves having Nikki back in Genoa City, but will Deacon blackmail her into marrying him? Diane’s murder mystery continues, but now Victor is protecting Nikki. What will Patty do next?
