On today’s ABC episode of Daytime Confidential Luke, Regan and Bernard discuss the latest in All My Children, General Hospital and One Life to Live storylines and news, including:
The Daytime Emmys return to network TV and will air on CBS from Las Vegas on June 27. Is this a bright spot for the industry or ironic, considering CBS cancelled As the World Turns in 2009. Regan, Benard and Luke share who they most hope will get a nomination when nominations are announced on May 12.
One Life to Live’s ratings hit an all-time low. Was this because of Kish’s departure or are other botched storylines causing fans to tune out? Marty loses her baby, but for some reason none of us care. Would developing a relationship between Natalie and Brody as their former loves drift father away save their respective storylines? How great would it be for Jessica to start getting her memories back, only to discover Natalie and Brody in bed? Tuc Watkins gets a contract with OLTL.
All My Children says goodbye to three of its most noted stars, James Mitchell’s Palmer Cortlandt, Julia Barr’s Brooke English and David Canary’s Adam Chandler. How will the Chandler family war for control turn out with their patriarch gone?
Vanessa Marcil is in talks with General Hospital, again. Should fans take a “believe when we see it” attitude? Chad Duell makes his Port Charles debut, but has all the steam been sucked out Sonny’s trial because of the recast?
