11 New Soaps We Can't Wait to Lather Up With!





No. 7: Vegas, CBS

Period pieces haven’t done very well on the Big Four in recent years. Last season ABC crashed and burned with Pan Am and NBC’s The Playboy Club was closed down shortly after opening for business.

That isn’t stopping CBS from attempting Vegas, a macho sudser about the Nevada gaming and entertainment mecca during the 1960’s. In the serial, Sheriff Ralph Lamb (film actor Dennis Quaid) faces off against Chicago mobster Vicent Savino (The Shield’s Michael Chiklis). Look for Vegas on Tuesdays at 9 pm EST this fall on CBS.

Josh Henderson and Jesse Metcalfe= YUM x1000 OMG! My mom use to tell me about watching Dallas back in her day so I'm looking forward to watching it, I hope it doesn't turn out like the remakes of 90210 and Melrose Place, cause those shows are HORRIBLE! I'm also looking forward to Beauty and the Beast, with Kirsten Kreuk, I was a huge fan of her on Smallville and I have to support my fellow Canadians! The rest of the shows don't look too appealing from what I've read, I'll just have to wait until the pilots air.

I'm so excited for "666 Park Avenue" and "Nashville". These two I will definitely check out.

I guess I'm not the target group for a show like "Hollywood Heights". But if the show proves successful I'll be excited for the industry - even with Phelps at the helm.

I don't know what to expect of "Infamous". It's this NBC style - which has nothing glamorous - that turns me off.
CBS and a serial!? I believe it when I see it. Wink "Vegas" sounds promising but can CBS actually have a success with a retro serial???

"Emily Owens" looks horrible from what I saw, but I'll check it out because of Justin Hartley. I'm not sure what to think about "Beauty and the Beast". Guess I'll wait on that one until midseason and see how it's doing.

I'll check out "Dallas" and "Political Animals" for the summer!!!! Laughing out loud

What about "Red Window"? I thought it looked promising...

What about Erica Durance's new medical series, Saving Hope, which starts in a few weeks on NBC (and CTV in Canada)? It sounds pretty soapy to me.

I'm counting the days until I get to visit with The Ewings again! I sure hope they do it right!

Mamie Gummer is a terrible actress and doesn't bring much else to the table. Hope her show bombs. She doesn't have the talent to be a successful actress, and nepotism pisses me off.

Jason George's show isn't gonna make it. He was on "Eli Stone" and that medical drama in the jungle. He hasn't had a good streak of shows. It's like he's a show killer. I like him but let's face it, he isn't a good omen for new shows.

Simon Baker used to be a "bad omen" for new shows...now he finally has a hit with "The Mentalist." Sometimes it takes a while to find a show with the right fit.

Now, I don't know anything about Jason George, but maybe this will be his "hit."

"666 Park Avenue" and "Nashville" look like the most promising of this list.

"Vegas" and "Dallas" could be good, but it will be hard to beat the original "Dallas."

"Political Animals" should be good since it's vaguely based on real-life (colorful) characters.

I'm going to give "Hollywood Heights" a try, but since it's on VH1, it probably won't be in my demographic.

"666 Park Avenue" has quite intrigued me, sort of Dark Shawdowy theme and it has Vanessa Williams big fan, the youngest son from Brothers & Sisters which I loved. I will definitely follow this soap.

"Nashville", I will give try sounds good.

"Dallas" baby can't wait!

I for one I'm looking forward to which isn't on the list is "Scruples" I will follow that soap. Loved the book and the mini-series at the time.

Forgot to mention I will not follow or support "Hollywood Height" the premise sounds good but it's due to fact one person "Jill Farren-Phillips"...she destroyed every soap in which was involved with maybe not SB, she did win there, once SB cut her lose, she butchered every soap and IMO only why should I support a someone that went out of way to kill off beloved characters fans loved but she didn't have any love what soever on her watch. Myself and many soap fans have always wondered why soaps always recycle EPs & HWs and move to another soap to do the same thing and destroy that soap every time. I have NO LOVE for this woman! Angry "Poof you have no power here Maleficent"!

Sorry but "Scruples" wasn't ordered to series.
I would have liked to seen this too. The description of the show sounded really interesting.
I'm also disappointed that "Americana" didn't make it. One of these shows could have been the lead-in to "Grey's Anatomy" on Thursdays. Don't see "Last Resort" making it that far.^^

Loved the British version of Mistresses. Really hope this version holds up. Can't wait to see it.

Soapjunkie88....thanks for the updated I didn't know, darn I was so looking forward to this as prime time soap Sad( Maybe it could be mid-season replacement because some bite the dust of course like any series. Geez, this is depressing but maybe someday.
