DC #725: Awkward Daytime Emmys and Tough, Soapy Love

On today's Daytime Confidential podcast Luke Kerr, Jamey Giddens, Jillian Bowe, Regan Cellura and Melodie Aikels debate the ever-so-awkward 2013 Daytime Emmy Awards. They dish out some tough love to General Hospital, The Young and the Restless and One Life to Live, while applauding Days of Our Lives, The Bold and the Beautiful and All My Children.

From screwing up journalist credentials to Aisha Tyler having to save the day, the production of the 2013 Daytime Emmy Awards was an awkward mess.  Kristen Alderson and Chandler Massey won the Younger Actress and Actor Awards. General Hospital’s Julie Marie Berman beat out Katherine Kelly Lang in the Supporting Actress category. Billy Miller and Scott Clifton tied in Supporting Actor. Heather Tom reigned supreme as the Lead Actress winner. Doug Davidson’s tears helped him win Lead Actor. Jamey dishes scoop from the Daytime Emmy red carpet, press room and after parties. Also, who would win in a cry off, Davidson, Jonathon Jackson or someone else? Days of Our Lives pulled off a major upset by winning Outstanding Drama.

Kelly Sullivan is out at General Hospital. Who knew spending two years on a soap made an actor a veteran?  Does anyone actually believe that Monica would let the man inadvertedly responsible for Michael’s rape live in the Quartermaine mansion? GH cannot push the fact that Franco is a serial killer under the rug, in its failed attempt to make him a corporate raider. If GH cannot fix Franco quickly, should the ABC soap let Roger Howarth go at the end of his contract? When fans asked for more Quartermaines they expected to see more Quartermaine favorites, not new characters in the Quartermaine mansion.

Lightning did not strike twice for Michael Easton and Kelly Monaco. General Hospital needs to get Silas and Sam out of each other’s orbit, ASAP. Would Silas being part of a hospital takeover storyline, where he faced off against Patrick, save the character? Who could have guessed that, of the three former One Life to Live stars, it would be Kristen Alderson’s Kiki that fit back into the canvas best?

Maura West’s Ava Jerome has been a revelation, but she needs to be quickly moved out of the Franco storyline. GH should play up the Jerome mob history. Should General Hospital bring Lucas Spencer, a Jerome by blood, back to Port Charles? Would he make a good love interest for Felix?

Did Prospect Park really need Roger Howarth, Michael Easton and Kristen Alderson on One Life to Live? All My Children has been fantastic without Susan Lucci, but One Life to Live got Howarth back and has wasted him. Does this prove once and for all the success of a soap is less about the star and more about the writing? OLTL needs to be fixed quickly.

The Young and the Restless even more problems than General Hospital. Mark your calendars, because Daytime Confidential’s Jamey Giddens is FINALLY over Villy. Summer’s paternity storyline and Phyllis trying to keep her daughter from Kyle has exposed problems with Y&R’s storytelling. Was it a mistake to recast Kyle in the middle of a major storyline? Has Y&R hurt itself by recasting so many characters? 

Jamey has a solution for Y&R’s Dylan problem. Why has the soap been telling such a lame MS storyline for Melody Thomas Scott’s Nikki? Jillian suggests a possible MS storyline that could have been epic. Luke wonders why so many couples—Summer and Kyle, Abby and Detective Chavez, Dylan and Chelsea and Kevin and Chloe—lack chemistry. Mel wants to see Tyler and Lily have sex.

Y&R’s single saving grace has been the Michael/Lauren/Carmine/Fen storyline. The DC gang doesn’t want to see Carmine killed off. However, if Y&R does get rid of Carmine, should GH snap Marco Dapper up? Mel is not happy about Adam’s storyline or hopping into bed with yet another new character. Jamey reveals how he thinks Y&R should have told Adam and Chelsea’s storyline.
