Most were cancelled over the years and only four remain -- The Bold and the Beautiful (CBS), Days of Our Lives (NBC), General Hospital (ABC), and The Young and the Restless (CBS). How long will these four survive? That will likely have a lot to do with the ratings. Stay tuned.Note: Each network measures its own programming's success separately. Still, it's fun to see how the four of them rank against each other.Read More… »

Well, bugger. It looks like Victor is winning again.
As The Young and the Restless started this week, Adam was ready to plead guilty. Chelsea even went to Dylan, who desperately wanted to help. Finally.
But it was too little, too late. Chloe had done her damage, Victor was doing whatever he could to get out of that hellhole and that was that.
Chelsea was all over the map. She tried to get help from Dylan, but that was useless.
Nikki was in the room with Victor and refused to leave, so all Dylan got was lies in response to his round of questioning.
This was directly after Nikki has spent an inordinate amount of time lovingly caressing Victor's face like he was a baby bird who would simply crush under the weight of a normal touch.
Seriously, I was going to have to climb into the television and start »

Young love comes in mysterious forms and often occurs when you least expect it. The new quirky romance “Some Freaks” takes us through that bittersweet feeling between two “freaks” alienated from their peers and surroundings. One-eyed high school senior Matt (Thomas Mann) meets 250-lb classmate Jill (Lily Mae Harrington) and immediately falls head over heels in love.

Surprised and confused by the change, Matt struggles to accept Jill’s choice while Jill isn’t sure Matt is the kind of guy she wants to date. As the distance widens between them, Matt and Jill are forced to confront who they are, who they were, and who everyone thinks they are, all the while trying to suss out if they’re right for each other in the first place.

Jimmy Fallon might not be the champion of the world, but he’s certainly the champion of late night.
The Tonight Show host came out as Donald Trump toward the top of Tuesday’s program, parodying the presidential nominee’s entrance to Queen’s “We Are the Champions” from Night 1 of the Republican National Convention, while airing allegedly unseen footage from Night 2.
Attempting to jazz things up, Fallon’s interpretation included a quick Michael Jackson-esque dance number and an old-fashioned top hat which he quickly discarded before taking to the podium. »
Soap opera actress Kimberlin Brown will take center stage at the Republican National Convention Tuesday night, appearing as the guest speaker for the night’s primetime slot. She will even be introduced by Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s onetime opponent Ben Carson.
But, who is Brown? Variety explains:
Brown played Sheila Carter first on “The Young and The Restless” and then on “The Bold and The Beautiful.” Carter was a “devious” character who “terrorized” the fictional Genoa City and was eventually killed off by her arch nemesis in the 1990s. She then appeared on “Port Charles” and “One Life to Live,” followed by a short-term role on “All My Children.” She currently hosts “Dramatic Designs” on The Design Network, where she walks viewers through her many projects, from conception to the final product. Brown is a “small business owner,” according to a Gop convention statement. Brown was born in Hayward, California »

July 15, 1988 must have been the day to celebrate Christmas in July because it’s the day classic Christmas movie (don’t argue) Die Hard was gifted to us. 28 years after the Die Hard hit theaters, it’s difficult to accept that the movie’s great villain is gone, and it’s wild to think about the fact that this was his first Hollywood film role — Alan Rickman was in his first movie at age 42, which makes it all the more tragic that his life and career were cut short this year. Since 1988, Bruce Willis has made four more Die Hard movies. Meanwhile, director John McTiernan’s last completed film was 2003’s Basic, and these days he’s keeping busy bashing modern blockbusters, Captain America and Mad Max: Fury Road included. Die Hard is available for purchase here on Fox Connect Other notable July 15 happenings in pop culture history: • 1963: The »

Things are still moving forward at a pretty fast pace on The Young and the Restless.
It really feels like they're in the midst of out with the old in with the new, and I like it.
So Ian escapes from the courtroom after Victor committed so much perjury even he couldn't possibly keep track of it all, and Meredith ultimately helped Victor escape police custody in the hospital to save the day.
The police are clowns in Genoa City, aren't they?
At first, Dylan and Paul were all over the place trying to figure out who helped Ian escape. Why Adam and Chelsea admitted to their plan is a mystery, but Adam was already on house arrest (can anybody explain that?), so it didn't really matter.
If Adam left the apartment, it would only be three for three escapes in the week.
Meredith listened in on the family chats with the Newmans, »

The actor, who received two Daytime Emmy nods for his work as the adopted son of Danny (Michael Damian) and Phyllis (now played by Gina Tognoni), will appear for a limited run beginning Aug. 25. (The CBS soap is slated to air its milestone 11,000th episode on Sept. 1.)

TVLine has confirmed that the One Tree Hill alum/recent Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. guest star will recur on CBS’ summertime whodunnit drama as April, a vibrant, insightful nurse at a rehab facility who develops a meaningful bond with one of the Hawthornes.
Labyrinth, starring late rock icon Davie Bowie as the Goblin King, opened in theaters 30 years ago today. Though Labyrinth — a dark, wonderfully weird, glam rock semi-musical populated mostly by puppets — was never going to be a movie that won over a wide audience, it’s still wild to think about how poorly it did upon release given the film now has a secure place in pop culture history and in Bowie’s legacy. It opened at no. 8 at the U.S. box office and earned less than $13 million, barely over half of its reported budget. It was the final film directed by Jim Henson, and in the aftermath of Labyrinth’s poor reception, son Brian said of his father, “that was the closest I've seen him to turning in on himself and getting quite depressed.” Though Henson never got to witness the full fandom that would amass around the movie, »

Oh, quit your moping already. Though many of your — and, yes, our — favorite primetime dramas are currently on hiatus, their daytime counterparts don’t get a summer vacation. In fact, if anything, the afternoon soaps turn up the heat this time of year to ensure that their storylines are as irresistible as a poolside mojito.
A lot has happened while I've been away.
I was in NY for CBS press day (summer prime time shows) and then at the Atx festival (all TV all the time!), and then this week The Young and the Restless was preempted three times. Meanwhile, the showrunner was fired, word is characters are on their way out...sheesh!
So, forgive me for my absences and if I miss anything that went down this week, because in case you didn't know, the Pittsburgh Penguins won the Stanley Cup, and a parade with over 300k people filling the streets gets priority in my hometown!
Now. Let's get to the good stuff. Ashley isn't the only one being driven nuts by Hillary.
Yes, Hillary is relapsing. Or is she?
Until Friday, I fully believed Hillary was about to succumb to a coma again like the other patients in the drug trial. She is »
