NEWS: B&B Offers Hope, DAYS, GLEE's Bullying Episode, Betty White

Kristian Alfonso, Suzanne Rogers and Molly Burnett appeared on the show on Monday to celebrate DAYS' 45th anniversary.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL Offers Hope for a Dying Genre
Ed Martin writes: "It seems to me that the producers and writers of the other five soaps could learn a lot by watching B&B these days. At a time when so many stories on the remaining daytime dramas have so little to offer, even as entertainment, B&B is single-handedly proving that soap operas can still have enormous value on many levels. All things considered, that’s a minor miracle."

GLEE has been building up to tonight's Kurt bullying episode for 1 1/2 years
"It's a big story that we're following through the whole year," says Ryan Murphy, "and it has tentacles that will touch on all the characters. Right when we finished writing this, that’s when there were these front-page stories about teen suicides from bullying, so it took on an extra, added significance. It really did ignite the cast and the crew to do their best and push themselves with the story."
