On today's Daytime Confidential podcast, Luke Kerr, Jamey Giddens, Jillian Bowe, Sara Bibel and Mike Jubinville dish the latest The Bold and the Beautiful, Days of Our Lives, General Hospital and The Young and the Restless headlines and storylines, including:
Do Maya's parents have ulterior motives? Are they more interested in the Forrester fortune than accepting their daughter? Dark Aly is going crazy on The Bold and the Beautiful.
John-Paul Lavoisier joins Days of Our Lives as Philip Kiriakis. Some among the DC gang are excited while others are reserving judgment. Why is Chad being saddled with such a boring triangle with Abby and Ben? DAYS needs to fix Nicole's storyline. Why are so many DAYS arcs straight out of the 1950s?
Luke and Lucky returning little Jake to Elizabeth was the highlight of General Hospital, but there wasn't much else to enjoy. The DC gang takes a deep dive into what's responsible for General Hospital's plunging ratings.
As long time supporters of Frank Valentini and Ron Carlivati—at both One Life to Live and General Hospital—this is a tough podcast for the DC crew. The men responsible for ABC's last soap need to step back and take a hard look at the state of their show. No one can turn a show around faster than Cartini, but to fix GH, they must be willing to admit where they've gone wrong.
Chelsea learns the truth about Adam on The Young and the Restless. The scenes were a vast improvement over the Y&R we've watched in recent months. As good as the Adam and Chelsea scenes were, the Jack and Phyllis hospital scenes were bad. Avery's rapist is arrested. Dylan proves he learned how to count in kindergarten.
All this and much more on today's Daytime Confidential podcast.
