That sound you hear is soap fans getting ready to display righteous indigestion over yet another perceived betrayal. On Nov. 8, General Hospital star Nancy Lee Grahn will appear on The Chew, and this blogger for one says good for her! READ MORE
All this week, ABC Daytime's The Chew has been going home with the stars of General Hospital, to find out if they can throw down in the kitchen. Check out a video clip below of Erik Valdez (Trey) making Mexican food for TV wife Lindsey Morgan (Kristina) on Venice Beach. Then watch Ingo Rademacher (Jax) at home with his young family in Hawaii!
I've been telling y'all I heard there would be more synergy between ABC Daytime's The Chew and General Hospital. According to sources, this development is a strategic move to further strengthen Time Square Studios-supervised vehicles — and field off further encroachment from ABC News.

Today The Chew kicked off a week of "Behind The Soap Screen" segments with a visit to Daytime Emmy-winning GH star Julie Marie Berman's (Lulu) home. I think this is hella smart of ABC Daytime's Vicki Dummer. CBS routinely uses The Talk, Let's Make a Deal and The Price Is Right to promote The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful.
While it will always sting that The Chew is sitting in All My Children's old timeslot, anything that gets our remaining sudsers even the teensiest bit of exposure, I'm down for. Watch the video clip of Berman, at home with her equally cute husband Mike Grady, below!

Sorry, ABC News division. Your plot to permanently snatch up an hour of ABC's daypart from Time Square Studios is seeming less likely to come to fruition with each passing ratings cycle. Good Afternoon America—the GMA spinoff ABC News rushed into production when they saw the first signs of weakness in The Revolution—is failing dismally, reports TV Media Insights. READ MORE
