On today's special episode of Daytime Confidential Luke, Jamey, Jillian and Regan weigh in on One Life to Live's shocking dismissal of Brett Claywell and Scott Evans and the end of the soap's popular, groundbreaking Kish love story.
From the quote about Kish not resonating "with the mainstream audience" that has outraged so many fans, to the multiple storylines that have contributed to OLTL's low ratings, DC digs into all the latest in this continuing saga.
The DG gang explores why OLTL seems to be cleaning house of its minority stars and young talent which has afforded the ratings-challenged sudser such critical acclaim. We pose the question, what has ahppened to the diversity Agnes Nixon created this show to reflect?
We also ponder, should Brett and Scott return if ABC offers? Do TPTB really think they are giving the majority of the fans what they want, while destroying the show in the process?Jamey wonders, will the move to oust Kish be Frank Valentini's Maureen Bauer moment? What, if anything, can OLTL do to turn things around in Llanview?
No other topic since Daytime Confidential.com's inception, from Guiding Light's cancellation to Victoria Rowell's shocking tell-all interview, has received such a vocal response from Daytime Confidential readers and listeners. More podcast fans have called in to our hotline about OLTL's Kish-trastropy than about the firings of Drake Hogestyn, Deidre Hall, Mary Beth Evans and Stephen Nichols at Days of our Lives. Listen to fans voice their opinions about the controversy at the end of the episode. This is truly an episode Llanview lovers won't wanna miss.
