She was the biggest star on the planet and could do what she damn well pleased — and that included taking a job on a daytime soap! It's been 33 years since Oscar winner Elizabeth Taylor stunned Hollywood by appearing on ABC's General Hospital as villainess Helena Cassadine, who campily crashed the wedding of Luke (Anthony Geary) and Laura (Genie Francis) and put a curse on them that lasts to this day.

For 18 seasons, “The View” has been one of the crown jewels of ABC Daytime programming block. But in a significant restructuring that could foreshadow the management style of incoming president Ben Sherwood, ABC’s daytime executives are losing oversight of the show, Variety has learned.
Starting today, “The View” will be part of the non-fiction branch of programming within ABC News, which produces the documentary series “NY Med.” The talk show will now be in the growing portfolio of ABC News president James Goldston, Sherwood’s right-hand man who helped revamp “Good Morning America.”
“Moving ‘The View’ to our non-fiction programming group now allows it to fully draw on the vast resources of ABC News and our team in New York, where the show is based right next door,” Goldston says in a memo Variety obtained from the network that will circulate to staffers on Thursday morning. “We couldn’t »

As she hinted at the beginning of the season, Burke, 30, is preparing to leave Dancing with the Stars - the ABC reality show that made her a household name. Her contract isn't up until the end of the season, but the judges and viewers hastened her departure by booting her celebrity partner Antonio Sabato Jr. on Monday. The show's first female pro to win two consecutive mirror-ball trophies lost a chance at a third when the judges pooh-poohed her Halloween-themed Viennese waltz with the General Hospital actor. »

A version of this story first appeared in the Oct. 31 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. For 26 years, The Young and the Restless has been TV's top-rated soap opera, attracting more than 5 million viewers a day. But Y&R has been declining lately, falling to a 1.4 rating among the key demo of women 25-to-54 this season, compared to a 1.9 in 2009-10. And the slide has coincided with increases for CBS' The Bold and the Beautiful and ABC's General Hospital. “Last year was a terrible year for The Young and The Restless,”

The Flash is gonna keep on running, while Jane the Virgin will carry to term.
The CW announced on Tuesday that it has granted full-season orders to both of its fall debuts — totalling 23 and 22 episodes, respectively — on the heels of well-watched premieres and critical acclaim.
“We have had a fantastic start to our season this year, with The Flash launching as our most-watched series premiere ever, and Jane the Virgin recognized as the best new show this season by critics across the country,” network president Mark Pedowitz said in a statement.

He’s not dead yet!?
The Flash is breathing new life into Caitlin Snow’s presumed deceased fiancé, Ronnie Raymond (played by The Tomorrow People‘s Robbie Amell). But before he rises, Tuesday’s episode (The CW, 8/7c) features glimpses of the couple as the S.T.A.R. Labs crew prepared to launch the Particle Accelerator that took Ronnie’s life.
“I’m so excited for the flashbacks,” star Danielle Panabaker said during a recent set visit. “It’s a great thing to see Caitlin in her element. She’s a scientist, and she’s excited. This is sort of their Mona Lisa. »
“I’m going to get attached to it. How could I not? ” Jane the Virgin sobs to her mother at one quite poignant moment in this week’s episode, and for a second, I forget that a few scenes prior, we were all worried about a leopard on the loose.
Such is the genius of this charming, wickedly funny show, no? And the CW drama only gets stronger in its second outing, which finds the reluctant mother-to-be vowing not to let the baby with which she was accidentally impregnated change her life. (Even for a dreamer like you, Jane, that’s a tall order. »
Have “The Walking Dead” fans become numb to all the atrocities? "'The Walking Dead' has always lived in uncharted television territory, and you can’t say that viewers weren’t warned that this season was determined to go even further beyond Thunderdome,” says Jeff Labrecque, adding: "But is it too far? And is 'The Walking Dead' getting a free pass because its explicit depictions of violence are framed within a zombiefied landscape?” “The Real World" Season 30 is going with a "Skeletons” format The Chicago-set "Real World: Skeletons" will feature "skeletons" from the housemates’ past, who move in to "drum up secrets and dark memories.” “Gossip Girl’s” Penn Badgley will romance Mary-Louise Parker on NBC’s “The Slap” He’ll play her much-younger boyfriend on the NBC miniseries about a slap gone wrong.

To mark the 20th anniversary of Space Precinct, Kyle takes a walk down Demeter City's memory lane to explore the show's highs and lows…
Cops in space. It's a neat idea, right? The concept is rich with potential, but it's surprising just how underused it's been. Gerry Anderson first approached it back in 1986, when he made a pilot for Space Police, which failed to sell and so remained unaired. The show starred Shane Rimmer (the voice of Scott Tracy in Anderson's Thunderbirds), and followed the exploits of a human cop working amongst aliens. For whatever reason, this incarnation of the show never saw the light of day, and remained buried for eight years.
In 1994, the series resurfaced with a new title, new actors, new aliens, and a less comedic tone. Space Precinct 2040 was a standard police show – crimes are committed; our plucky heroes chase the perps down – but transferred to Demeter City, »
