Hello! If you're looking for Sunday Surgery, please refer to the post below this one. I did an early surgery because I was not here Friday and Saturday. There's been some big stuff brewing since then so I'd thought I'd give you the heads up:
YES, THAT'S GEORGE HAMILTON! KFC and ABC/GH have teamed up to recognize KFC with product placement and a visit from the Colonel and his Pickle Fried Chicken. Don't laugh-- we may just need this to save the soap and make some money. Ok, laugh. But remember: neither the actors in the scenes nor the writers asked for this!! (Let's hope they got paid in KFC gift certificates for the extra work). July 6th is National Fried Chicken Day! Go to DAYTIME CONFIDENTIAL for more information.
THERE'S A JASAM BINGE-JAM OUT! Well, ABC is going guns to promote super-couple JaSam this summer! How? Full episodes from their past, highlighting "the best of...." TV SOURCE MAGAZINE has the schedule. You can watch them on Hulu or ABC.com. And yes, in case you're wondering, there are already giant Twitter fights about JaSam getting a collection and not any other "super-couple". Um, that's because they are PROMOTING them for the summer. You know, to hopefully get those ratings up.
MONICA'S BACK! Over on Michael Fairman's site, it's announced that Leslie Charleson is returning as Monica in mid-August. Hooray!
CASTING: Another Ford Brother Look alike! Soap Opera News is reporting that Owen Saxon booked a role on GH. "Booked a role" isn't "put on contract" but..he certainly fits the GH "type". Not sure what this is about yet. Dante recast? Just rando doctor guy? There's no GH IMDB listing for him yet either. We'll just have to wait and see. Soap Opera News is the source for this one.
HAPPY CANADA DAY! Did you know that Dom Z is from Canada as is Jason Thompson and William DeVry?
