Census Underscores Hispanic Growth
The Hispanic population in the United States has surpassed the fifty million mark, according to the new census. On Telemundo, the soap opera LA REINA DEL SUR debuted only three weeks ago and beats its English language network competitors in primetime.

Amelia Heinle signs new contract with Y&R

"I had a really good run. Five years is good. I'm closing this chapter and going on to something else. I'm very optimistic."

Ricky Paull Goldin responds to ALL MY CHILDREN cancellation talk
"We have been told by the powers-that-be we're not going anywhere, that the rumors are not true and we would have been the first to know," Goldin reports. "These are all vicious rumors. To see false rumors affect or impact a legacy television program like this would be a sin." But that's not to say that the cast wasn't concerned. "It was a bit of a downer that we've all been fielding questions and texts and e-mails from people who love us, our family and friends," he notes. "My mom called and asked me if the show was going off the air. That doesn't set you up for a good day at work. That was so yesterday. And everybody is fine today." Nevertheless, the actor urges the fans to show their support for the 41-year-old sudser. "Now is the time to let their voices be heard," he says. "And they can do that by calling this phone number: 818-460-7477, press 1, then 2, then 3, then 255 for ALL MY CHILDREN and tell the powers-that-be that they support and love the show and that if the show doesn't go anywhere, they're not going anywhere."
