Scandalous soap sex has been in short supply lately.
The two soaps that are creatively struggling right now, “The Young & The Restless” and “General Hospital,” decided to add insult to injury this week.
The 40th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards was a night of upset victories, from “Days of Our Lives” winning Outstanding Daytime Drama for the first time in 38 years to “CBS Sunday Morning” beating both “Today” and “Good Morning America” for Outstanding Morning Show.
