We want drama! ABC soap fans rally to keep Erica Kane and her daytime friends on the air
Novartis Consumer Health, the pharmaceutical company whose products include Excedrin, had this to say about the outcry: "Novartis Consumer Health is aware of consumer feedback regarding advertising support for Excedrin on ABC. We’ve told our fans who've posted their frustration on our Facebook page that we're sorry to hear that the cancellation of two of the longest running shows on ABC Daytime has caused them a headache!"

Eric Marstolf Steps Into the SMALLVILLE Spotlight as Booster Gold
"First of all, the episode is written by [DC Comics chief creative officer] Geoff Johns, who is a comic-book god. What he does so well is take real moral issues and life lessons and intertwines it into an awesome comic-book story. And essentially what this episode is about is style versus substance. You have the epitome of style and glitz and self-promotion in Booster Gold, versus Clark Kent, who prefers to remain in the shadows as the Blur. And once you put these two guys together it's a really interesting rivalry. Booster Gold is a glory-seeking showboat from the future. The episode takes place in Booster's very early stages where he's at his conceited best, where he believes he can do whatever he wants. He's gonna stay for the photo op and bask in the glory of his heroic efforts — which is exactly what Clark is trying to avoid right now. Clark wants to stand in the back and not be a glory hound. They are completely opposites of one another."

LA’s woozy beatsmith Groundislava gets his first video today, finely animated and featuring pupil-less floating statue fragments, barefoot skateboarding, self-propelled balloon hands and walking on water. Somehow describing the vid helps describe the song, those images easier to digest than the other plain facts we’ve got to share: that “‘Animal’ is helmed vocally by Jake Weary, the son of Kim Zimmer who played Luke Snyder on AS THE WORLD TURNS.
