‘I’m Sorry’ Canceled By TruTV After Two Seasons Because Of Coronavirus

TruTV has opted not to go ahead with the previously greenlighted season of scripted comedy I’m Sorry, created by and starring Andrea Savage. The well-received series had been renewed for a 10-episode third season to air in 2020.

Your Complete Guide to Pilots and Straight-to-Series orders

“Due to circumstances created by COVID, we unfortunately cannot move forward with production on the third season of I’m Sorry,” the network said in a statement to Deadline. “We admire Andrea Savage’s irreverent voice and fresh take on parenthood and are so proud of the show she and her cast and crew created. She was a great partner for many years and we truly wish everyone well.”

I hear I’m Sorry was two weeks into filming Season 3 when all Hollywood production was shut down in mid-March. All 10 scripts for the new season have been written, and Savage and the show’s other producers were contemplating scenarios for resuming production when the call came from the network that I’m Sorry has been canceled. I hear it caught everyone off-guard.

“We are heartbroken. This has been my second baby for almost 5 years,” said Savage, a mother of one. “While I wish people would be able to see the wonderful 10 episodes we wrote this season, I am so proud of the show we created. It is exactly the show I wanted to make and am devastated it’s not continuing. I also want to thank all of our fans for supporting us so incredibly over these past few years. We couldn’t have done it without you!”

The cancellation of I’m Sorry follows a similar decision by Netflix not to proceed with previously greenlighted and fully written seasons of two YA series, The Society and I Am Not OK With This “due to circumstances created by COVID.” Those reversals also reportedly blindsided the creators like the I’m Sorry one did.

As we wrote at the time, this is something we will likely see more of as the months-long Hollywood shutdown due to the pandemic will create a logjam when trying to ease all series impacted by the shutdown back into production while navigating actors’ schedules and mitigating higher production costs due to strict COVID-19 safety protocols as well as significant financial hits from the pandemic.

The decision on I’m Sorry is likely a combination of the impact from COVID and the major changes and belt-tightening at TruTV parent WarnerMedia, which has been going through major restructuring and cost-cutting.

I’m Sorry, from Gloria Sanchez, A24 and Lonely Island, was part of TruTV’s rebrand as a comedy network with a distinct point of view. The WarnerMedia ad-supported cable networks have all been pairing down their scripted series portfolios over the past year or so amid declining lieanr TV ratings. TruTV still has At Home With Amy Sedaris and just renewed breakout Tacoma FD for a third season.

I’m Sorry, which grew its audience in Season 2 vs. Season 1 per TruTV, has been lauded for its nuanced TV mom portrayal. It follows Andrea (played by Savage), a confident comedy writer, wife and mom who comically exposes her inner immaturity and neuroses through unexpected life situations. She is joined by her husband Mike (Tom Everett Scott), their inquisitive daughter Amelia (Olive Petrucci) and her divorced parents (Kathy Baker and Martin Mull), as well as a close circle of friends.

I’m Sorry is executive produced by Savage, Joey Slamon, A24’s Ravi Nandan, Gloria Sanchez’s Jessica Elbaum, Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, and Lonely Island’s Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer.

Republican convention viewership down 26% from first night of 2016

Roughly 17 million people watched the first night of the Republican National Convention on television during the primary speech hours between 10 p.m.-11 p.m. EST Monday night, according to Nielsen ratings.

Why it matters: That’s down more than 26% from the number of TV viewers for the first night of the 2016 RNC. It’s also 13% lower than the number of TV viewers who watched the first night of the Democratic National Convention last week.


The ratings drop at both the DNC and RNC is likely attributable to the fact that both conventions were mostly pre-taped, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and fewer people watch live television now.

  • About 15% fewer Americans subscribe to pay-TV now than in 2016.
  • More Americans rely on digital streaming platforms and social media to get their news and entertainment today than ever before.

By the numbers: Fox News beat all other cable and broadcast networks when it came to total viewership Monday night, with over 7 million viewers.

  • That’s more than the 5.1 million total audience members than MSNBC saw on the first night of the DNC.
  • Fox News led all three cable networks in viewership among adults ages 25–54 — a lucrative advertising demographic — followed by CNN and then MSNBC.
  • CNN brought in the second-highest number of total viewers with roughly 2 million, followed by ABC, MSNBC, NBC and CBS.

Be smart: These figures don’t take into account the millions of people who likely watched the convention online and via streaming television.

What’s next: Fox News, a conservative-leaning cable news network, is expected to lead in total views for all four nights of the RNC, just as MSNBC, a liberal-leaning cable news network, took the top spot for total views for the entirety of the DNC.

[PHOTOS] ‘Yellowstone’ Season 3: The Best Moments, Ranked

If you’ve yet to watch Yellowstone’s finale, you might want to put off reading this countdown for a spell, as it most definitely contains spoilers for Sunday’s climactic finale. Otherwise, go ahead and dive in, because we’re going to relive Season 3’s highlights — or, well, lowlights if your name happens to be Wade Morrow.

Included in our list are the moment that Beth dropped her guard and copped to the role that she hoped to play in Rip’s future; Jamie’s accidental discovery that, while he might always be the black sheep of the Dutton family, that wasn’t his original family; and the scene in which Jimmy learned that being hospitalized with a broken back (for starters!) might just be the best thing that ever happened to him.

Along the way, we also cover the confrontation that resulted from John learning how far back Jamie’s history of rat-bastardy-ness went, the ultra-successful chemistry test that served as Josh Holloway’s introduction to the Paramount Network series, and a kiss that was surprisingly sweet when you remember how much sexual harassment had preceded it. (Yeah, lookin’ at you, Teeter!)

Wanna go back and relive Season 3 all over again? Considering how long a wait we have in front of us before we get to Season 4, we do, too. So to check out our picks for the 12 biggest twists of these 10 tumultuous episodes, flip through the photo gallery above, then hit the comments with any developments that you would have added to the list.

ThunderCats: Hulu Is Now Streaming the Original and Rebooted Series

The classic ThunderCats series andits 2011 reboot are now available to stream on Hulu.

ThunderCats remains a beloved staple of ’80s animation, particularly its iconic intro sequence. The show aired 130 episodes between 1985 to 1989 which, by nature of broadcast syndication, amounted to two seasons of television, both available online. The reboot series, while initially aiming for a 52 episode run, only produced a single 26-episode season before being canceled in 2013, yet it retains a sizeable fanbase for its narrative and modernized changes to the source material.

The original Thundercats follows a race of cat-humanoids who flee their dying homeworld Thundera to another planet called Third Earth. Consisting of Lion-O, Tygra, Cheetara, Panthro, WilyKit, WilyKat and Snarf, the group must regularly defend the legendary Sword of Omens — specifically the Eye of Thundera stone that powers it — from the Mutants of Plun-Darr and the evil demon-priest Mumm-Ra, a being of pure evil. Much of this responsibility falls to Lion-O as “Lord of the Thundercats,” who must learn to take on a leadership role while bearing the mind of a 12-year old, as the suspension capsule holding him during the trip to Third Earth failed to slow down his physical growth.

In the reboot, Lion-O and the Cats are already living on Third Earth, and sit atop the planet’s animal hierarchy. They must defend against the Lizards and Mumm-Ra, who leave the Cats’ kingdom in ruins and Lion-O and Tygra’s father King Claudus dead. With leadership duties and the Sword of Omens passed down to him, Lion-O and his allies must locate the ancient Book of Omens for information on how to defeat Mumm-Ra, all while seeking alliances with the planet’s other animal communities.

Created by the late Ted “Tobin” Wolf and produced by Rankin/Bass Animation Entertainment and Leisure Concepts, ThunderCats aired its first run between Sept. 9, 1985 and Sept. 29, 1989. The series has since received two reboots on Cartoon Network. The first was a more anime-styled version that aired between 2011 and 2012, while the second and current reboot is the more comedic ThunderCats Roar.

‘The Crown’: Elizabeth Debicki Plays Princess Diana in Seasons 5 & 6 – Variety

The Crown” has found its Princess Diana.

Elizabeth Debicki, who will be seen next in Christopher Nolan’s “Tenet,” has been cast as the late, famous royal in the fifth and sixth seasons of “The Crown.”

“Princess Diana’s spirit, her words and her actions live in the hearts of so many. It is my true privilege and honour to be joining this masterful series, which has had me absolutely hooked from episode one,” Debicki said in the Twitter announcement posted on Sunday afternoon.

Elizabeth Debicki will play Princess Diana in the final two seasons of The Crown (Seasons 5 and 6). pic.twitter.com/Z3CjHuJ56B

— The Crown (@TheCrownNetflix) August 16, 2020

The hit Netflix series has followed the royal family through several time periods, starting in the late 1940s and early 1950s with Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip’s marriage and early careers. Season 3, released in 2019, jumped forward in time to the 1960s and 1970s, replacing the cast with older actors. Princess Diana, who was born in 1961, will be introduced in the upcoming fourth season with actor Emma Corrin.

“The Crown” recently expanded its cast on Thursday, adding Jonathan Pryce as Prince Philip in the final two seasons. “Doctor Who” star Matt Smith originated the role, with “Game of Thrones” actor Tobias Menzies replacing him in seasons 3 and 4.

Alongside Pryce and Debicki, Imelda Staunton will play Queen Elizabeth in the two seasons. Claire Foy first played the royal in the original two seasons, and Olivia Colman took over in season 3. Princess Margaret will be played by Lesley Manville in seasons 5 and 6, after turns by Vanessa Kirby and Helena Bonham-Carter.

Debicki will be one of the few non-English actors featured in the series, following John Lithgow’s role as Winston Churchill. She will star alongside John David Washington and Robert Pattinson in Nolan’s oft-delayed “Tenet” when it finally debuts internationally in late August and in the states in early September. She’s also appeared in “The Burnt Orange Heresy,” “Widows,” “The Cloverfield Paradox,” and “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.”

The “Tenet’ star is the latest actor to play Princess Diana as Kristen Stewart was cast in an upcoming biopic called “Spencer” by “Jackie” director Pablo Larrain.

Oprah Lectures the Nation on Race and White Privilege on New Apple TV Show

Billionaire Oprah Winfrey used her new Apple TV show to lecture the nation on race including calling out whites for having special privileges because of their skin color.

“The Oprah Conversation” was just announced at the end of July and on the first episode, “How to Be an Antiracist,” Oprah discussed white privilege and urged her white guests to discuss their racism.

Also appearing in the first episode was Emmanuel Acho, a former NFL linebacker.

Oprah introduced her new show in a video.

Conversations about race do not have to tear us apart. Watch the premiere episode of #TheOprahConversation with @EmmanuelAcho, available now on @AppleTV+, here: https://t.co/7ShvNUyh96 pic.twitter.com/LDm213OivO

— Oprah Winfrey (@Oprah) July 30, 2020

Oprah said all whites have an advantage regardless of their social status because “…they still have their whiteness.”

During the show, Oprah lectured four white women about race and got them to admit their racial bias.

On the two-part premiere episode of #TheOprahConversation, @Oprah and @emmanuelacho talk through the uncomfortable conversations we all need to be having right now.

Now streaming on the @AppleTV app with an Apple TV+ subscription. https://t.co/YFiW1vtxjP pic.twitter.com/D5NnzbllyF

— Apple TV (@AppleTV) July 30, 2020

Oprah was criticized for her beliefs about white privilege.

Oprah is worth $2.7 billion. She is the richest black woman in the world, yet she still thinks poor white people have more advantage than she does because of their “whiteness” pic.twitter.com/g4rNTq1tZj

— Brokeback Patriot (@brokebackUSA) August 4, 2020

Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz called Oprah’s views on white privilege, “racist BS.”

Billionaire Oprah lectures the rest of us:

“You still have your whiteness. That’s what the term ‘white privilege’ is. It means that whiteness still gives you an advantage, no matter.”

What utter, racist BS. https://t.co/02PADVJkrZ

— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) August 5, 2020

It’s unbelievable Oprah can deliver a lecture to white people on racism when it was white people that helped make her a billionaire.

Clearly, if America is racist, Oprah would not be a commercial success.

Oprah’s lectures and blindness about race is not going to advance race relations.

‘The Sopranos’ and ‘Goodfellas’ writers to collaborate on new mafia series

The writers behind The Sopranos and Goodfellas are coming together to create a new mafia drama series.

The show, which will be produced by Showtime and Imagine Television Studios, will be created by The Sopranos producer Terence Winter, Goodfellas screenwriter Nicholas Pileggi and Empire‘s Brian Grazer, according to Deadline.

The untitled series is inspired by Pileggi’s in-depth chronology of organised crime in America as seen through the eyes of the mafia’s First Family.

Pileggi, who started his career as a journalist, is best known for writing Wiseguy: Life In a Mafia Family and Casino: Love and Honor in Las Vegas, which were adapted into the Martin Scorsese films Goodfellas and Casino. He co-wrote the scripts for the movies with Scorsese. Pileggi also executive produced Scorsese’s most recent feature, The Irishman.

Besides The Sopranos, Winter created and executive produced HBO’s period mob drama Boardwalk Empire, and co-created and executive produced HBO’s rock ‘n roll drama Vinyl. He was nominated for an Oscar for an Oscar for his The Wolf of Wall Street screenplay, and he’s currently writing a TV series series for HBO Max set in the world Matt Reeves is creating for The Batman.

Grazer is working an an executive producer on the second season of Wu-Tang: An American Saga for Hulu, as well an Empire Cookie spinoff starring Taraji P. Henson. He’s also working on the doc-series SuperVillain: The Rise and Fall of Tekashi 6ix9ine for Showtime.

Meanwhile, David Chase, creator of The Sopranos, has seemingly accidentally revealed the fate of Tony Soprano in the show’s finale.

The end of the hit show, which was broadcast in 2007, left Tony with an ambiguous fate, with him sitting in a diner as a rival hitman approaches.

The screen fades to black before Journey’s ‘Don’t Stop Believin” plays, leaving fans unsure as to whether Tony is killed or not.

General Hospital Spoilers: Vanessa Marcil Causes Twitter Firestorm – Implies Brenda Barrett’s Return | Celeb Dirty Laundry

General Hospital (GH) spoilers tease that GH fans are very worked up about the possibility of a big Brenda Barrett (Vanessa Marcil) return to the show. It all started on Twitter very recently, when Vanessa Marcil, who portrayed Brenda Barrett on the ABC soap, responded to a disparaging tweet that someone made about the character of Brenda.

Brenda last appeared on GH in a guest role in April 2013 when her character returned to Rome after attempting to get back together with Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard).

Well, in response to a nostalgia tweet about Brenda’s 2010-2011 run on GH, a fan replied by saying: “I love Maurice…never was a fan of Brenda. I was glad to see her go.”

The fan tagged both Vanessa and Maurice in the tweet, and in response, Vanessa retweeted the remark about her character with the following reply: “I’ve got some bad news for ya,” along with a smiley face.

Vanessa’s reply has caused a firestorm on Twitter, with loads of fans retweeting, liking, and commenting on her response to the fan. Many have taken her comment as an indication that the character of Brenda Barrett may be returning to GH.

One person replied excitedly: “OMG Vanessa, I hope that means you’re coming back. Been waiting for so long.”

And someone else commented: “Wait what? I would 1000% watch again for Brenda. Time to come home #BringBrendaBack.” Finally, someone said: “I sure hope you have bad news for them, and terrific news for us Brenda fans. I would love to see you back at GH, to stay, showing them what Brenda is all about. Taking what belongs to you, you bring excitement when you come. You and Sonny can set the world on fire.”

We should note that Vanessa Marcil’s statement comes right about the same time that GH’s Executive Producer Frank Valentini promised a big surprise that will occur in the first few moments of GH’s episode to air on Monday, August 3rd, which is GH’s first episode back after the coronavirus shutdown.

In fact, GH even put out a promo with showing Steve Burton (Jason Morgan) and Donnell Turner (Curtis Ashford) speaking briefly about the big surprise.

“Don’t DVR it, don’t wait for later. Watch it live, or risk being spoiled,” Steve says in the promo, with Donnell chiming in, “Can’t say we didn’t warn you!”

So clearly, something big is going to go down early on during Monday’s GH episode – could Vanessa have been signaling that it could be Brenda’s return? Monday’s official spoilers don’t give any indication that this will be the case, but clearly something’s up, so viewers will have to watch and see.

Given the enormous response that Vanessa’s tweet got from excited fans, we suspect there will be a lot of people tuning in tomorrow for GH’s first episode back after the break.

ill you be watching GH on Monday, and do you think that Brenda could return to the show? Stay tuned to General Hospital, and be sure to stick with CDL for all your GH news and spoilers. And be sure to catch CDL’s daily episode recaps so you don’t miss a thing!

I’ve got some bad news for ya 😊 https://t.co/NutRsgsnq4

Netflix confirms fifth and final season of ‘Money Heist’

Money Heist Netflix

The news ‘Money Heist’ fans were waiting for is finally here as Netflix on Friday confirmed that it is working on the fifth season of the hugely popular series.

In a statement released on its website, the streaming giant announced that La Casa de Papel (Money Heist) will come to an end with season five. Netflix also revealed that season five will be shot in Spain, Denmark and Portugal.

Jesús Colmenar will act as Executive Producer and Alex Pina will act as Executive Producer and Showrunner. Cristina López Ferraz will return as Director of Production and Executive Producer. Javier Gómez Santander (head writer), Migue Amodeo (Director of Photography) and Esther Martínez-Lobato  are also co-producing.

“We’ve spent almost a year thinking about how to break up the band. How to put the Professor on the ropes. How to get into situations that are irreversible for many characters. The result is the fifth part of La Casa de Papel. The war reaches its most extreme and savage levels, but it is also the most epic and exciting season”, said Alex Pina.

General Hospital Spoilers: Sam McCall Recast – Kelly Monaco Replaced by AMC Alum Lindsay Hartley Temporarily | Celeb Dirty Laundry

General Hospital (GH) spoilers reveal that Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco) will look a little different in upcoming new GH episodes since she has been replaced temporarily by Lindsay Hartley.

According to Daytime Confidential’s sources, Lindsay Hartley will serve as a temporary recast. Hartley will slide in the role of Sam, but she’s only supposed to stick around for a couple weeks.

There’s no confirmation on why Monaco wasn’t available, but the good news she’s expected back on set in the near future. In the meantime, Lindsay Hartley fans will enjoy her fleeting visit to Port Charles. This certainly isn’t Hartley’s first rodeo in the soap world.

Passions watchers will remember Hartley for her role as Theresa Lopez-Fitzgerald, which she portrayed from 1999 to 2008. From 2009-2010, Hartley played Arianna Hernandez on Days of Our Lives. Next, Hartley portrayed Dr. Cara Castillo on All My Children. She was on AMC from 2010-2011 and then reprised the role of Cara in 2013.

Hartley was also featured on The Bay as Sammie Sullivan back in 2014. Her most recent projects include playing Dr. Landford in The House on the Hill and the role of Brooke Jenkins on Deadly Daughter Switch.

Hartley has one more film in post-production called Dawn of 5 Evils, but it’s her upcoming run as Sam that GH fans are most interested in!

When new episodes resume, General Hospital spoilers say Sam will continue to deal with two main problems: parole restrictions and the threat Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) poses.

Twitter Votes Breaking Bad the Best Show of the 21st Century

The early 21st century was something of a golden age of television. The Sopranos ushered in an era of prestige TV that just kept delivering great show after great show. Depending on how you look at it, the golden era ended when Game of Thrones wrapped last year, but no matter how you feel about shows that are currently airing, there’s a strong collection of shows from the first two decades of this century that can lay claim to “Best Show Ever” status.

LadBible asked people to vote for their favorite.

In a competition that played out over a series of tweets, LadBible posted a variety of polls asking people to vote for the greatest TV show of the 21st century. They did not include The Sopranos, the Godfather (sorry) of modern television because the series debuted in 1999.

The shows that were included in the polls included Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Stranger Things, Peaky Blinders, The Wire, Black Mirror, and The Office (UK and US).

Here’s how it played out:

What is the greatest TV show of the 21st century? Semi-Final 1

Game of Thrones dominated the first semi-final, with The Office series somehow combining, and somehow overcoming The Wire, my personal pick for Greatest TV Show of All-Time.

The second semi-final set-up a formidable competitor for GoT:

No big surprise there, unless you count the fact that Mad Men finished behind two shows that shouldn’t even be in this competition. The finals featured a fantasy epic that saved its worst for last and a crime saga that got better every season and culminated in a murderer’s row of final episodes.

Over 11,000 people voted for the winner, and still, the outcome was tight, as befits these two amazing shows:

There you have it. Breaking Bad is the Greatest TV Show of the 21st Century, as voted on by readers of LadBible, a UK publication. Do you agree? What shows did they miss?

Ms Fisher’s Modern Murder Mysteries Renewed By Acorn TV For Season 2 – Deadline

EXCLUSIVE: AMC Networks streamer Acorn TV has commissioned a second season of Ms Fisher’s Modern Murder Mysteries after licensing the first season of the Australian crime drama.

The show, originally brought to Acorn subscribers last year, is a spin-off of Australian broadcaster ABC’s series Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries. Every Cloud Productions will produce Season 2 in association with distributor All3Media International and with funding from Acorn Media Enterprises.

Acorn TV will premiere the drama, which stars Geraldine Hakewill as the charming 1960s detective Peregrine Fisher, in the U.S., Canada, New Zealand, and in its home country of Australia in 2021. Seven Network, which commissioned the first season of Ms Fisher’s Modern Murder Mysteries, will show the second season after it has debuted on Acorn.

Season 1 took place in Melbourne, and features Fisher taking up the detective mantle from her aunt Phryne Fisher — who featured in the original ABC drama — after the latter goes missing over Papua New Guinea in her light plane. New storylines will see Fisher tackling her biggest case yet, while juggling romance with policeman James.

Fiona Eagger and Deb Cox created Ms Fisher’s Modern Murder Mysteries through Every Cloud Productions, and said Acorn has been “incredible” as a partner. Don Klees, senior vice president of programming for the Acorn brands and AMC Networks SVOD, added that subscribers “loved” the first season.

The second season will be made with support from Screen Australia and Film Victoria. Returning cast includes Joel Jackson (Peter Allen: Not The Boy Next Door), Catherine McClements (Wentworth) and Toby Truslove. All3Media International distributes outside of the U.S., Canada, New Zealand and Australia.

Report: Oprah Winfrey’s Magazine “O” Goes Belly Up After 20 Years

More from Wayne Dupree

Plagued by all sorts of problems, including the president of her publishing house who is getting “Me Tooed” for sexual harassment, the magazine is now done.

Although the #MeToo thing shouldn’t bother Oprah too much – after all, she was BFF’s with Harvey Weinstein…the man who is the entire reason for the “Me Too” movement.

Let’s put it this way, if the magazine was a successful business venture, Oprah could have kept it going, but she’s not. It’ll close completely.

Oprah Winfrey’s monthly magazine founded 20 years ago will cease printing after its December 2020 issue, according to reports.

The staff of O: The Oprah Magazine, which was created by Winfrey and Hearst Communications, was informed of the decision on Friday, Business of Fashion reported.

The report came the day after the president of Hearst Magazines, which publishes the magazine, resigned after being accused of sexual harassment.

Winfrey, 66, is yet to confirm the news of her magazine ceasing print publication.

As of 2020, the average paid circulation for the magazine – which always features Winfrey on the cover – was 2.2 million copies.

It has a print audience of 10 million, meaning that each copy of the magazine was read by around five people on average, Hearst claims.

In addition, Oprah’s OWN Network has declined since 2o18, when she lost 14% of her viewers. It was at that time, Oprah finally admitted that her struggling cable network was a bigger challenge than she had expected.

From Cinemablend

Oprah has admitted herself that she wasn’t expecting how difficult it would be to get a network off the ground, and now we can see that keeping viewers is quite a task, as well. According to Deadline, OWN lost 14% of its viewers from 2017, even with the network sticking with the type of programming that it’s become known for since 2011.

If she asked me why her brand was failing – and I was being perfectly objective – I would tell her that her decision to go “political” might be a big part of the reason why she’s seeing a decline in viewer and readership.

Let’s face it, people are just sick and tired of everything being “political,” and I know that when Oprah came out for Obama, she made a lot of people angry, and then in 2018, she and Obama were actively campaigning for that poor-sport Stacey Abrams in the Georgia gubernatorial race. Oprah even knocked on doors to try and muster-up votes for Stacey.

That didn’t work, however, and Stacey lost the race.

Seems to me that Oprah just doesn’t have the “pull” she used to.

Young And The Restless News Updates: Greg Rikaart Teases Kevin’s Future When Y&R Returns – Soap Opera Spy

The Young And The Restless: Greg Rikaart (Kevin Fisher)The Young and the Restless spoilers reveal that Greg Rikaart has a lot on his mind regarding his character Kevin Fisher and onscreen partner Chloe Mitchell, played by Elizabeth Hendrickson.

When the show returns to the airwaves with new content, Kevin and Chloe won’t have long to wait until their little one arrives. In real life, Hendrickson gave birth recently to a beautiful baby girl, and fans are speculating as to whether or not her little one might star as the couple’s baby. We will know about that soon enough but in the meantime, we have some of Rikaart’s thoughts about the family.

Here are some of the insights that Rikaart revealed in an interview with Soap Opera Digest.

The Young And The Restless spoilers – Will Kevin And Chloe’s Son Turn Out To Be A Sinner Or A Saint?

First off, Rikaart gives a thumbs up to his character’s ability to be a good dad and says he was excited to learn that Kevin and Chloe were going to add to their family.

When asked if he thought his onscreen son would be a little demonized like his dad once was, the actor said, “I actually think that’s a great idea.” While Kevin is rehabilitated in the bad boy department, there was a time when he was dressed as a chipmunk to rob a bank!

Y&R Spoilers – Should Kevin And Chloe Get Married?

Some fans think that the couple should get married now that they are an established couple with two children. As for Rikaart, he thinks that “Kevin and Chloe have a good thing as is and that seems enough for them. I’m really on the fence with that one.”

What he’s not on the fence about is his costar Judith Chapman who plays Kevin’s mom Gloria Abbott Bardwell.

The Young And The Restless spoilers – What Happens Next For The Fisher Family In Genoa City?

When asked if he would like Gloria to return he said, “Oh, hell, yeah! Judith brings so much to the show.” He shared that he loves the interactions between Gloria, Chloe, and Kevin. “What Judith brings is always so delicious. She’s so gifted and infuses so many layers into one scene.”

‘I Would Love to Share My Faith with the World’: Dad of 8, Pastor, and Winner of ‘The Voice’ Shares His Dreams – Faithwire

Contributor

Todd Tilghman is a pastor, husband, and father of eight children – he’s also the winner of “The Voice 2020”.

If you’re a fan of NBC’s “The Voice” competition, you know when contestants try-out, they’re praying that just one of the judges will turn around and pick them. During Todd Tilghman’s audition, all four judges swung around in their seats. So it’s no wonder he wound up the 2020 winner.

Tilghman chose Blake Shelton as his coach when the show premiered in February. Prior to the show, he said he had only ever sung at church.

In the finale, where each singer performed from home, Tilghman wowed the judges with Christian band Mercy Me’s popular hit “I Can Only Imagine.”

“My wife, Brooke, told me I would regret it if I didn’t go,” he said. “Thank God for her and thank God I changed my mind and decided to go. It’s been like a dream. Everyone keeps telling me to just soak it in, but it’s hard to do because you just can’t believe you are really there.”

The 41-year-old pastor of Cornerstone Church in Meridian, MS is the oldest performer to win out of the show’s 18 seasons. 

Tilghman tells CBN the entire experience has actually been good for his family. “We’ve always been a really close family, but I actually think this has caused us to come even closer,” he said.

His win earned him $100,000 and a record deal. Now there’s also talk of a book, and maybe even a reality TV show.

“I would love to share my faith and my family and who I am with the world,” he told CBN. “And show the world that there’s someone like me who just loves them unconditionally.”

Let’s pour it out! Netflix renews ‘Sweet Magnolias’ for season 2! –

Who’s ready to pour it out and return to Serenity? Netflix has made our quarantine with the announcement that they’ve renewed one of our new favorite series, Sweet Magnolias for a second season.

Sweet Magnolias, which premiered May 19, was just the kind of television show we needed during quarantine. If you love Hallmark movies, this show is for you! It was everything a great southern drama should be, complete with man-candy and ships — both young and old — that were enough to make you swoon.

We’re ready to pour it out with these three wonderful ladies for another season!

But perhaps most important, this second season renewal gives us clarity, if nothing else. If you haven’t watched Sweet Magnolias — what are you waiting for?! — the season one finale ended with a monster of a cliffhanger (read our speculation here).

Sweet Magnolias, based on the bestselling series of the same name by Sherryl Woods, tells the story of three best friends — Maddie, Dana Sue, and Helen — and their hectic, but sometimes blessed lives. More than that, there are a whole cast of secondary characters that get to shine — including the kids, Tyler, Annie, and Kyle, as well as arguably the most beautiful man on this show, Erik.

I mean, Netflix simply couldn’t deny us more Erik. JUST LOOK AT HIM.

There are so many storylines left to be told in this series, which makes us so thrilled for what’s to come in season 2. The season 1 finale cliffhanger presents so many amazing story arcs for multiple characters, and we can’t wait to see how this town and these characters will be impacted.

One of the best and most surprising parts of Sweet Magnolias was how amazing the kids were on this show. While they were somewhat secondary characters, they really held their own opposite some incredible actors. And given the events of the season one finale, there’s reason to believe there are big things in store for Ty, Annie, and Kyle.

Not to mention, Sweet Magnolias gave us the epic slowburn that is Ty and Annie, which was just one of several ships that had us clamoring for more.

We’re more than ready for some more Ty and Annie in season 2!

While we don’t know when Sweet Magnolias season 2 will premiere on Netflix, just knowing there’s a second season is enough to keep us satisfied. We’re going to take note from Hamilton — we’re willing to wait for it. Just, not too long, please.

General Hospital Spoilers: New GH Episodes Return August 3 – Official Confirmation From Nathan Varni | Celeb Dirty Laundry

General Hospital (GH) spoilers reveal that new episodes are coming up – and they’re set to air sooner than fans might think! If you’ve been eager to see what’s next in Port Charles, the wait’s almost over. According to what a GH rep revealed to Soap Central, General Hospital’s set to deliver new episodes again starting Monday, August 3.

GH plans to pick back up with episode #14541, which will be the first new episode they’ve aired since Thursday, May 21. Once their originals ran out, General Hospital delivered plenty of Nurses Ball encores along with some classic theme weeks centered around Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) and his kids.

Then, the show switched to more recent episodes in hopes of achieving a seamless transition to new ones. If this August 3 return airdate holds firm, GH will pull off their goal.

General Hospital has timed it so the May 21 episode will re-air on Friday, July 31. The following Monday should pick up where the drama left off and finally give fans some new story developments.

GH filmed some scenes before the shutdown that have yet to air, so that’s giving them a little head-start as they try to get new episodes ready ASAP. Even so, General Hospital will have to put a rush on things! This first episode back comes just two weeks after their scheduled restart date, so they’ll be cutting it close.

There’s also the matter of new safety protocols that might slow down filming initially. It’s an adjustment for everyone on set, but it’s all about proceeding with caution. Protecting the cast and crew is what’s most important.

However, soaps tend to be well-oiled machines that can pump content out quickly when necessary. Everyone at GH will work hard to deliver their new scenes ASAP!

Let’s hope August 3 sticks as the show’s first day back with a brand-new episode. It’ll certainly be exciting to see what’s ahead for all our favorite PC residents.

As other GH news becomes available, we’ll deliver more updates. General Hospital spoilers say some stunning moments are in store, so stay tuned for some hot action. CDL will have tons of other great General Hospital spoilers, updates and news to catch up on, so be sure to pop back in frequently.

UPDATE: Official Confirmation From Nathan Varni!

No longer involved but am happy to see #gh is going to return in a few weeks! I’ll be watching and I hope you will too! Let’s all tune in to show the world that we want this series and daytime dramas to continue airing for many more decades to come!! Pls support #gh ❤️ 8-3-20!! https://t.co/fjW0necqss
