Also If True, I Wonder If They Will Replace Her Or Just Let The Bells Run Their Shows With No Interference? Log in to Reply aveRex January 18, 2011 Good news for CBS but bad news for ABC Daytime if She’s going work for Brian. Log in to Reply DaytimeFan0001 January 18, 2011 WOW this could be HUGE! Afterall, it’s no secret she was hired to keep an eye on the dramatic daytime programming. i heard she was “unbearable” on the set of “The Talk” for it’s kickoff! Bet Julie told Les, send Babs packing. Log in to Reply appleridge January 18, 2011 Well ABC Needs To Toss Frons Than maybe CBS & ABC can get execs in there that love daytime Like Angela Shapiro Mary Alice Dwyer Dobbin (MADD) Yes I hate how she handled Michael Zaslow at GL but So many writers and producers praise her Or what about that guy I believe it was Ed Tratch or something he was in charge pf prod at P&G when they still loved Daytime What about Sheldon Kalora? Who was at NBC Log in to Reply jockteen10 January 18, 2011 yessssssssssssssssssssss! Log in to Reply Mary Leiboh January 18, 2011 This is amazing news. Barbara Bloom-in-idiot as she is un-affectionately called around CBS, has also really screwed up The Price is Right as well this year, with her firing of the beloved announcer “Rich Fields, in favor of having “Improv comedians”. They try to announce while they make asses of themselves. Between Barbara and Fremantle EP (idiot) Mike Richards, they have successfully ruined an American family classic game show. Its a train wreck nowadays. I’m surprised Les kept her around as long as he did. Maybe this will mean good things for CBS in the future, and some of the shows we love. Log in to Reply DaytimeFan0001 January 18, 2011 I bet this has something to do with the alleged racism attached to the network from VR too. Things like this are usually a combination of events. Log in to Reply Mary Leiboh January 18, 2011 Sorry, double post. Log in to Reply Brittany January 19, 2011 What about Maria Bell? She has totally RUINED Y&R with HS and PR, and their nepotism! Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 January 19, 2011 This heifer ain’t going nowhere!!!!!!!!!! CBS likes to REWARD incompetence these days, not discourage it!!! Log in to Reply Ryan-Scott January 19, 2011 Oh God I hope this is true. If so, Nina Tassler – your thank you card is in the mail. Log in to Reply dkp January 19, 2011 Glad she’s going, but I wonder how this effects CBS Daytime (positive or negative), her replacement could be worse than her, or with only 2 soaps now, CBS could do what I think NBC did and eliminate the position all together, not sure her position is even needed anymore. Log in to Reply boodsm January 19, 2011 Granted, her departure is long overdue, but the fact that it was supposedly the orders of Julie Chen does make ya wonder….who’s on first over there? The long term affect this has on Y&R & B&B though is what really has me curious…..May “The Talk” Go Down in Flames, and Julie Chen go back to being a hair model or weather girl or whatever the heck she did before this—other than being married to the head of the network I mean, but thats not a job. lol Log in to Reply JackieT January 19, 2011 First things first – Bloom had nothing to do with the announcer decision at TPIR. That was entirely a decision made by the production company, FremantleMedia. Second, since you’ve brought up the topic, Fremantle made the right decision. No question about it. Rich was anything but “beloved”, and they need to take steps to lower the age of their viewers. Sorry you don’t like those changes, but if they didn’t change Rich, they’d definitely change just about everything else. The common complaint is “change for the sake of change”, while in fact, that claim couldn’t be further from the truth.

Log in to Reply Saher89 January 19, 2011 wow…this was coming, given with 2 cancelled soaps under cbs’s belt right now. Log in to Reply Dariclone January 20, 2011 I still can’t believe Rebecca Herbst has been let go. I’m not a regular GH viewr but I remember reading in the mags about Lucky and Liz, I think my mum was watching then as well. She’s super talented i can’t believe ABC’s letting her go.
