In recent years, watching the Daytime Emmys has become an exercise in frustration. This year's ceremony was no exception. By any standards, the production was a mess, running 35 minutes over (a marked contrast to 2009, when the broadcast ended just as Bradley Bell was about to accept The Bold and...

and the law firm of Lavely & Singer for distracting me with some much needed levity at the end of a difficult and frightening week ...  I live just outside Boston, and as I passed last Friday "sheltered in place" (my town wasn't one of those officially shut down, but since there was no...

At the time, I truly believed that my days of watching daytime soaps came to an end when the final episode of As the World Turns aired on September 17th, 2010.  Of course, as my mother was so fond of telling me: never say never. So, when One Life to Live left the air in January, I skipped the...

When ABC announced the cancellation of All My Children and One Life to Live in mid-April, the network seemed to have all its ducks in a row. When AMC left the air in September, it would be replaced by Chew; OLTL would air until January 2012 when The Revolution would take over. But ABC was committed...

Back in January, We Love Soaps unveiled the 50 Greatest Soap Actresses of All Time. Now, it’s time for the men. As with the women, Roger and Damon asked a wide range of panelists to each submit our top 25. I was pretty pleased to see 18 of the 25 actresses on my list make the final cut; with the...

  to bring you... It's only April, and so far 2009's been a rough year for viewers in the New York metropolitan area who watch Guiding Light on WCBS. Last week, it was live coverage of the installation of a new archbishop that enraged GL fans in general, Otalia fans in particular. Actually, I think...
