I’m a big fan of Vanessa’s work and I’m so excited that she’ll be moving into the neighborhood next season to cause trouble in all the ladies’ lives.
Now this sounds like something to check out. NBC has picked up the Jerry Bruckheimer drama Chase starring former All My Children star Kelli Giddish and Passions eye candy Jesse Metcalfe, according to Broadcasting & Cable. Chase is “a fast-paced drama amid a game of cat-and-mouse as a team of U.S. marshals hunts down America's most dangerous fugitives.”
Since leaving their respective soaps each has spent time in primetime. Metcalfe had a memorable stint on Desperate Housewives as Gaby’s (Eva Longoria) lawn boy lover, while Giddish starred in FOX’s quickly cancelled Past Life.
The Young and the Restless' Kate Linder was one of many celebrities who turned out to help serve Thanksgiving dinners for the homeless. The annual event, hosted by Kirk and Anne Douglas and the Los Angeles Mission, brought out Greek's Gregory Michael, Vampire Diaries' Kayla Ewell, recent Brothers & Sisters' guest Giles Marini, Desperate Housewives' Andrea Bowen, High School Musical's Corbin Bleu and Donal Logue among others.

It looks like buzz is no longer translating into ratings. Perez Hilton is reporting that one of the most talked about primetime soaps since Desperate Housewives, The CW's Gossip Girl, has taken a major ratings hit. According to the Gossip Gangsta, the series netted a depressing 1.4/2 rating. So basically less people are watching Gossip Girl than tune in to watch Guiding Light, which was recently cancelled by The CW's parent network CBS. Of course daytime soaps don't have lucrative DVD, merchandising and cross-promotional opportunities like their niche primetime and cable counterparts, but in the end, will all of that be enough to keep The CW from going the way of The WB and UPN?
