On today’s Daytime Confidential episode Luke, Jamey, Jillian and Belinda discuss the latest in All My Children, As the World Turns, The Bold and the Beautiful, Days of our Lives, General Hospital, One Life to Live and The Young and the Restless storylines and news, including:
Alicia Minshew returns to All My Children this week as Kendall, but why do they insist on using Kendall to pimp a couple AMC fans loathe like Ryan and Greenlee? Amidst a terrible storyline Debbi Morgan has been delivering standout performances. Belinda weighs in on the new dynamic at Chandler mansion. Is it even worth it to keep Scott Chandler in the mix?
The Young and the Restless signs As the World Turns star Maura West to play the role of Diane Jenkins. Molly calls off her wedding to Holden. Lucinda’s master-plan of revenge against Craig is falling into place.
The Bold and the Beautiful’s Hope is beginning to spin out of control as she grapples with what her mother and boyfriend did. Taylor, Stephanie and Steffy rip into Brooke. What will Steffy do now that Taylor has given her share of Forrester?
Days of our Lives ratings continue to sag, but what can they do to get back on track? Is their front burner Nighttime Hope storyline to blame or do they need to pick up the pace? Luke believes there is a lack of intensity to DAYS storylines and that they don’t give fans a reason to be invested. After lasting way to long, but the Nighttime Hope storyline is beginning to wind down.
General Hospital’s Brenda returns to Port Charles this week. Will her return be everything the network hopes or could her return kick off with a bang and then fizzle? Belinda doesn’t think Brenda is the end all be all. Claire started out as such a good character, but now she’s fallen for Sonny’s charms. Could Claire end up sidelined like Kate Howard or Hannah?
Todd and Tea’s wedding was great on One Life to Live, but was the picture of Roger Howarth foreshadowing something? If it wasn’t, should it be? Jamey believes that Howarth’s return is one of the few things OLTL could do to get a sustained ratings boost. The Elijah mess just keeps getting worse and worse. Why can’t Blaire catch a break when it comes to men? OLTL says goodbye to Evangeline.
The DC gang digs into Maura West news. Is the role of Diane Jenkins the right one for West or is The Young and the Restless playing fast and loose with Diane’s age? Jill betrays Billy yet again. Who won’t she betray to get what she wants? Should Lauren be in jail for pushing Jill into the grave? Phyllis and Nick’s marriage is crumbling, but Michelle Stafford is delivering great performances. Did Phyllis revert back to her old self after getting a haircut?
