Eva LaRue on the Red Carpet at the Emmys!

 Eva LaRue (ex-Maria) arrives at the 62nd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards tonight, August 29 in Hollywood.   Looking good!!!  

COMMENTARY: Who's Zoomin Who Here?

Just a warning for you spoiler free folks out there.  I am going to be discussing a rather big spoiler for next week here, so if you don't want to know or don't want to play the speculation game, stop reading now.

Now, with that out of the way, spoilers reveal someone major dies this week on AMC.  Probably in the last few minutes on Friday, typically.  There aren't many guesses really, and just one glaring choice.  David.   But how can this be!?   David can't die!!    He's too important!  He's got his hand in too many pots!   He's just so deliciously evil and fun to watch.  And there's your answer.  David can't die.  If he does, that ends his hold on Greenlee, the problems with the Hubbard's, his hatred of Jake, his interesting new budding friendship (or more??) with Liza, his non existent relationship with Marissa, Caleb and Tad's plans to bring him down.  It ends major parts of many stories.  So no, David can't die.  If he is not only really dead, but really most sincerely dead, dare I say the show ends. 

I've never been one to believe that the fate of any show rests on the shoulders of one person.  But we have some extenuating circumstances here.  Other than David, does AMC have an antagonistic that can have their hand in so many pots and continue to stir?   No one since Adam, and he's already gone.  You may hate David (although I can't imagine it myself!) but he is necessary to the fabric of Pine Valley.

So what's really happening then?  Well I don't know but I'll happy to guess.  David this week spots Greenlee and Ryan together, plotting against him.  He sees them laughing and that is when he starts to spiral.  They're all laughing at him, mocking him... Ryan, Greenlee, Jake, Angie, Jesse, Amanda, Tad ... everyone.   And then, it becomes apparent that many in town don't just hate him but want him dead.  Maybe someone tries, but David is ready, armed with one of his crazy potions or elixirs and a few buy offs of just the right people.  David is dead.   And just when Pine Valley starts to relax and breathe that collective sigh of relief, he'll be back with an even bigger vengeance than ever imagined!    

So.. ya with me?   Seems kind of a given right now that Liza will help him in this endeavor, but who else?  Madison perhaps?  Hmmm... the possibilities seem rather exciting!

Spoilers for the Week of August 29!!!

This weeks spoilers are a little sparse!   AMC is keeping what happens this week very close to the vest it seems.  But I've been able to uncover some things for you!    And a little later, I'll be speculating on just what I think is going on.  In the meantime, Caleb asks Krystal to be his date.  David spots Ryan and Greenlee plotting.  Liza is appointed DA and someone big dies at the fundraiser!!

COMMENTARY: Are Soaps a Dying Art?

It's a question that's been asked a million times.  I've asked,  you've asked it, everyone has asked it.  How can we not?   We see the demise of long running soaps like Guiding Light and As the World Turns, and not as long running soaps like Passions, and we wonder...who's next?  Are we next?  Will the network really take my beloved AMC away from me and replace it with God forbid, an infomercial?  Or worse, another tired reality show or talk show?   Can this happen?  Really?   It can.  

I was just reading a very interesting article on the subject on Advertising Age's websiteCBS is adding a new talk show to take the place of ATWT.  What's to stop ABC from doing the same? Already there are more talk shows than soaps... The View, Live with Regis and Kelly, Dr. Oz, Oprah, Ellen, Rachael Ray... that's six right there off the top of my head and I'm sure there are more.... Jerry Springer, Maury, Bonnie Hunt, Martha  AHH!!!!  

AMC was dead in the water, so it's said, without the move to LA.  OLTL is constantly rumored to be the chopping block.  NBC has one soap left.  Are soap viewers like me, like you, clinging to something that we will ultimately lose?  What can be done to stop it?  I wish I had the answers.  Next month CBS will air the final episode of ATWT and replace it with a blatant View rip off called "The Talk."  Is that progress?   Tell me what you think?   Is it time for soaps to pack it in or should they fight harder to gain more viewers and keep the old ones?   On the TV Land sitcom Hot in Cleveland, Wendie Malick plays an aging soap star, desperately clinging to her glory days.  Is she metaphor for the genre as a whole?  What are you thoughts on this subject?

Breakfast with the Chandlers??

How can you pass up this opportunity!?  The Chandler Fan Event will be hosted by Jacob Young (JR), Brittany Allen (Marissa), Adam Mayfield (Scott), Natalie Hall (Colby) and Melissa Claire Egan (Annie).  The event will be held on Sunday, September 26 from 10:00 am - 1:00 pm and includes breakfast.  Tickets are $75.00.  Click here for more information.

Adam Mayfield Fan Event!!!

Adam Mayfield (Scott) will be hosting his own fan event during AMC Fan Club Weekend in LA!!!  The event will be held at the Airtel Plaza Hotel in Van Nuys, CA on Friday, September 23 from 1:00 - 4:00 pm.   For ticket information to his event or information on his fan club please contact Debby O’Connor.
