On today’s Daytime Confidential podcast the DC gang drops in on The Morning Jolt with Larry Flick to discuss the latest in daytime and pop culture news, including:
The end of As the World Turns. Do soap’s executives and writers hurt their show’s ratings by punishing characters for actor's behavior. The Denver Post is reporting that OLTL will be picked up for two more years. Does Brian Frons manufacture it so that General Hospital and All My Children always win? Larry questions why soap fans should tune into One Life to Live. Is the Days of our Lives brand strong enough to jump to cable?
We then dive into the new and returning primetime shows of the season and the latest gossip. Can Lone Star make it? Larry then asks Jamey why fans should care about a new Dallas series. Will No Ordinary Family be as good as Luke hopes? Is The Middle better than Modern Family? The gang weighs in on the return of Glee for its second season, but will it suffer from a sophomore slump? Larry then puts Jamey on the spot and has him belt out several popular songs. Are we beginning to get Betty White fatigue? Was the Katy Perry and Elmo segment on Sesame Street inappropriate for children? Can Lindsay Lohan make a comeback or is she destined to be a “has been?”
