Casting News of the Week Stephen Nichols (Tucker) is the latest star of “The Young & the Restless” to be fired by the show’s new producer, Jill Farren Phelps. The actor has already taped his final scenes. The billionaire who turned out to be Katherine’s long lost son and Devon’s father suffered from inconsistent writing […]
Soap fans, view this as less of a Christmas miracle and more of a Festivus airing of grievances. Deadline reports that Prospect Park, the production company that infamously bought the rights to ABC’s canceled soaps “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” with plans to turn them into daily full length online programs, then […]
This week’s column is going to be all about “General Hospital” because a couple zillion things happened in Port Charles this week, while the other three soaps were so boring. “The Young & the Restless” has the excuse of transitioning from one headwriter to another. “The Bold & the Beautiful” ought to change its name […]
