28 August 2014 6:34 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

One Life to Live favorite Melissa Archer is making her next stop Salem, USA, with a shiny new gig on NBC’s Days of Our Lives — and TVLine has exclusive details on her role.

Rumblings about Archer’s move to Days first surfaced in a Daytime Confidential blind item; not long after, Soap Opera Digest confirmed the casting, then another Oltl alum-turned-Days star, Kassie DePaiva, tweeted a photo of the on-set reunion ‘tween “Blair” and “Natalie”:

Daytime Emmy Awards: ‘Young and the Restless,’ ‘Ellen DeGeneres,’ Steve Harvey Among Top Winners at Raucous Ceremony (Full List)

22 June 2014 2:45 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and “Steve Harvey” grabbed the top talkshow wins while “The Young and the Restless” was named best drama series Sunday at the 41st annual Daytime Emmy Awards, which proved to be a raucous affair as the kudocast grappled with the transition to a streaming-only format.

A high volume of no-shows among top winners and bumpy moments underscored the unusual nature of this year’s ceremony, which was unable to land a TV deal. At times, presenters struggled with their stage instructions and the camera work was jumpy. Without the timetable and content constraints of airing live on advertiser-supported TV, winners and presenters let the salty language fly, and some winners took their sweet time with acceptance remarks on the Beverly Hilton stage.

Host Kathy Griffin (pictured) and others made light of the situation. Griffin ended the nearly two-hour ceremony by walking on stage yelling “say goodnight! »

Daytime Soaps Enjoy a New Surge in Popularity

9 April 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The soap bubble that was supposed to burst is still very much intact.

A couple of years after “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” brought to five the number of daytime dramas axed by the networks over a five-year stretch, the genre is flourishing.

Ratings are up at the four remaining soaps — “The Young and the Restless” and “The Bold and the Beautiful” on CBS, “General Hospital” on ABC and “Days of Our Lives” on NBC — and, in this DVR era, any kind of gain is cause for celebration.

One reason for the increases could be the simple fact that there are fewer shows to compete for the pool of fans. Today’s soaps live alongside game and talkshows such as CBS’ “Let’s Make a Deal” and ABC’s “The Chew,” and a bigger variety of programming for viewers to choose from seems to be helping all the networks. »
