Y&R's Tonya Lee Williams believes daytime drama is dying
“Now I look at daytime drama as a piece of history,” Williams said during a recent telephone interview from her home in Los Angeles. “Popularity is cyclical and budgets (for network television) are shrinking. If you’re not a CSI or CRIMINAL MINDS with gory autopsies and psycho killers, you’re at the bottom of the ladder. Things are changing, shifting. Reality television rules. I’m not dissing reality television. It’s just the way things are now.”

Williams will receive the Martin Luther King Jr. Award at the Black Theatre Workshop Vision Gala, Jan. 28.
