On today's ABC episode of Daytime Confidential Luke, Regan and J. Bernard discuss the latest in All My Children, General Hospital and One Life to Live storylines and news, including:
Adam was shot on All My Children. Everyone is a suspect, but did Adam deserve to die? How many guns are floating around Pine Valley? Did the whole thing look like an 80's B movie and was it too much? Babe's twin is running around town. We like the actress, but why did Babe need a twin? Stephanie Gatschet joins All My Children, as the DA's wife. Why didn't they cast her as a member of a core family?
Michael Corinthos III woke up, but did the ABC promo department ruin it for the viewers? Why was it Lulu who was there when Michael woke up? Why couldn't it have been Bobbie, when we've seen more of her in the past week than in the past six months? Carolyn Hennesy's Cougar Town has been picked up by ABC. Congratulations to her.
The Pussycat Dolls shook some booty on One Life to Live and Matthew Buchanan must have been happy. Todd, Tea, Blair and Marty were held hostage. Is One Life to Live trying to keep Roger Howarth out of the flashback scenes? Lola on LSD was fantastic. Why is that actors do their best job when they're being written out?

Check out this preview of ABC's new Courteney Cox comedy Cougar Town, which features Carolyn Hennesy (Diane, General Hospital). Hennesy appears near the end of the clip in a hilarious scene.
I caught up with General Hospital funny lady Carolyn Hennesy (Diane) to congratulate her on Cougar Town, the Courtney Cox laffer she has a recurring role in, being picked up by ABC for Fall 2009. To say the talented actress and author (Pandora Gets Lazy, the latest in her YA series about the mythological heroine, is on sale now!) is excited would be an understatement the likes of saying Diane Miller sorta likes shoes. But don't worry GH fans, Hennesy plans to pull double duty.
"I am beyond excited about this series and, while I don't ever want "Diane Miller" to become a ghost in Port Charles —literallly or figuratively—I see nothing but good times on ABC primetime," says Miller."From the first table read, I was of the opinion that there were very few ways for this project to fail. Even though my character is recurring, I am hoping the powers that be decide that "Barbara" is a weekly must see."
Cougar Town will definitely find a space on my DVR this fall!
The Academy may not have recognized her with a much-deserved Daytime Emmy nomination, but primetime television has. Cougar Town, the Courtney Cox vehicle that boasts a recurring role for General Hospital's resident fresh of breath acting Carolyn Hennesy, has been picked up as a series by ABC.
As previously reported, General Hospital's Carolyn Hennesy has signed on to ABC's pilot Cougartown and this week she gave readers at E!Online a peek at her character.
Carolyn Hennesy of General Hospital has joined the cast of Courteney Cox and Bill Lawrence's new show Cougartown. Carolyn tells us, "I work in the same real estate office that [Courteney] does. I'm very ladylike and conservative, and then at night it's literally like Jekyll and Hyde. The claws come out, and the men have to go into hiding—the young men are all very afraid."
Cougartown stars Friends alum Courteney Cox-Arquette.
