Welcome to Top of the Week!

The end of an era on NBC and what's coming to Turtle-Run.com

Every week I'll be writing a column to share some of my thoughts on what's going on in soapdom. For example:

In addition, we have added a new message board at Turtle Run titled: "Criticize the Critic," for you to comment on the items I discuss in the Top of the Week column. Hope to see you posting there.

The Top of the Week column will also provide previews on upcoming events, features, and interviews at Turtle Run.

Coming soon is a candid conversation with Shawn Christian (ex-Mike Kasnoff, As The World Turns) about his life after soaps, complete with exclusive photos of the talented star, and look for the real inside story of how a dedicated group of Cady McClain (Dixie, AMC) fans mounted an international campaign that wooed the actress back to Pine Valley. We have tons of exclusive interviews with stars from all the soaps, like Shemar Moore (Malcolm, Y&R), Kevin Spirtas (Craig, DOOL), Mick Cain (CJ, B&B), Catherine Hickland (Lindsay, OLTL), Jess Walton (Jill, Y&R), Elizabeth Hubbard (Lucinda, ATWT), Robert S. Woods (Bo, OLTL) and that's just the beginning!

As you know, the Daytime Emmy Awards are fast approaching. Check back to TRO often for our Daytime Emmy coverage! Our first story, an insiders look at the New York City Mayor's Office honoring the NY-area Daytime Emmy Nominees, is online now! Don't forget to vote for your favorites in the TRO Daytime Cybbys!
