Did DirectTV removing CBS cause YR’s ratings to crumble? And now that the black out if over, can they recover? Loren Lott is already and busy in a new OWN prime time show. The Daytime Emmy’s are considering merging the younger actor and actress categories into one. But why?
It’s Festival time! Hollyoaks goes on location as teens try to have fun but are foiled at every turn. Cleo and Lisa live their lives while Sinead and Sami connect. Brooke is revealed to be pregnant. Laurie breaks out of prison after brawl with Finn, captures Sinead and then drops dead. We will miss his style of villainy. Ste’s behavior is escalating as he is getting closer to Jed and participating in protests. How will Sinead and Sami being together fuel his anger?
The Young and the Restless
The bachelor and bachelorette parties from hell commences. Theo and Kyle’s rivalry seems to be heating up as Abby Newman attacks her own niece for no reason. Chelsea reunites Adam with Connor. Billy is still being gaslit in a story that could have be written from a much better angle.
The Bold and the Beautiful
Same thing, different day. Is it time for fans to put their stan wars aside and actually ask for more from the writing?
Shiloh is ready to give Drew’s memories to just about anyone, showcasing how undervalued the character is. He almost gets Sam, Jason and Cameron but winds up getting Franco. Is Franco the new Drew? Julian buys the house where his daughter was almost raped by a cult leader. Sasha collapses and will probably need some kind of blood transfusion. Will she actually be Nina’s daughter? Kelly Monaco decides to spill 2 week old tea in the middle of our taping.
Days of Our Lives
We’ve been begging for a better story for Eric because his romance with Sarah just isn’t working. Fans noticed the lingering on the phoenix tattoo Greg Vaughn has had for years. Is this a sign of something more? Ted is dead! Tony didn’t seem too bothered to kill him. More doppelgangers and masked women having sex with unknowing men. Is it rape?
