(aka The Daytime Emmy Awards) and former Head of News, Government and Elections at Twitter. Topics include how the Daytime Emmy Awards more than doubled its viewership from last year’s telecast—without being televised on a traditional network; why daytime TV in its many formats remains viable today; the difference between false news and fake news, and what to look for so that you don’t fall for either. Also in this hour: Ali Agirnas, the actor who plays Nicholas Gustavson on Godless, talks to Ed about becoming an actor after a successful career as an entrepreneur, his passion for surfing, and how proud he was to speak his father’s native language when he played a Turkish detective on the NBC series The Brave.

Four time Emmy winner, People’s Choice recipient and multiple Golden Globe nominee Michael Learned will be honored with the Legend Award at The Family Film Awards on Thursday, Sept 27. In addition, the iconic actress recently served as a celebrity judge at the Grand Finale of the 12th annual LA’s Next Great Stage Star Competition (held Monday, Aug. 27), plus she just completed filming the short subject Second Acts and will reprise the role of Miss Daisy in a stage production of Driving Miss Daisy coming up in January 2019 at the Laguna Playhouse in Laguna Beach, California.

Learned’s first series regular audition was for Olivia Walton, the matriarch of the Walton family, on The Waltons, the long-running CBS family drama set in the Depression era and based on the writings of Earl Hamner. Though told at the audition that her character would probably not continue beyond the pilot, Learned went on to play Olivia for eight seasons (1972-1980), creating the role of a lifetime. After winning three Emmys for The Waltons (and a fourth for her starring role in Nurse), Learned became a fixture in daytime television for her regular roles on General Hospital, The Young & the Restless, as well as a crossover character (the Honorable Judge Turner) in both One Life to Live and All My Children, while her stage credits include productions of Steel Magnolias, the national tour of On Golden Pond, Lewis Black’s One Slight Hitch, the Broadway productions of Gore Vidal’s The Best Man, Wendy Wasserstein’s The Sisters Rosenweig and The Outgoing Tide.

Michael Learned also recently appeared in the critically acclaimed digital dramedy Life Interrupted. Her upcoming works include Second Acts, a short film about two people who strike up an love affair over the course of an evening and discover that love conquers all.

If you have Netflix, you’ve seen Trine Christensen as Jacob Gustavson’s wife on Godless, the seven-episode Western miniseries that is up for twelve Emmy Awards this year, including nominations for Best Actor (Jeff Daniels), Best Limited Series, plus writing and directing nods for series creator Scott Frank. If you watch the AMC original series Preacher, you know her as the wife of The Saint of Killers (the character played by Graham McTavish). Trine began her acting career doing stunts on The Terminator: Salvation, Gamer and The Spy Next Door. She has also appeared in numerous short films, as well as such network, cable and streaming series as Longmire, Breaking Bad, The Brave, Killer Women and Smitty’s.

Born in Denmark, Trine originally studied to be a scientist until a trip to New Mexico changed the course of her life and set her on a path to becoming an actor. We’ll ask her about that, plus we’ll talk about the challenges of playing a character who does not have a first name, and how Trine recently “found her game” while learning comedy improv skills with the Upright Citizens Brigade. Trine Christensen will join us in our first hour.

Ali Agirnas, another cast member of Godless, will join us in our second hour. Ali plays Nicholas Gustavson, the frontiersman who helps set up Frank Griffin’s now iconic line “This is Godless country” in the Netflix miniseries.

Ali is relatively new to acting, having made his professional debut just ten years ago after a successful career as an entrepreneur. We’ll talk about his back story (which includes growing up in Turkey and Germany), his passion for surfing, and how proud he was to speak his father’s native language when he played a Turkish detective on the NBC series The Brave.

PASADENA – APR 27: Adam Sharp at the 45th Daytime Creative Arts Emmy Awards Gala at the Pasadena Civic Center on April 27, 2018 in Pasadena, California

Also joining us this week will be Adam Sharp, interim president of The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (aka The Daytime Emmy Awards) and former Head of News, Government and Elections at Twitter. Earlier this year, the Daytime Emmy Awards more than doubled its viewership from last year’s telecast—an impressive feat that becomes even more amazing when you realize the Daytime Emmys pulled that off this year without being televised on a traditional network. We will ask Adam how they did that. We’ll also discuss why daytime TV in its many formats remains viable today, the difference between false news and fake news, and what to look for so that you don’t fall for either. Adam Sharp will join us in our first hour.

Podcast of TV CONFIDENTIAL Show No. 416 with guests David Arnoff and Chuck Harter is now available online for listening on demand

Show No. 416 with guests David Arnoff and Chuck Harter
Original Airdates: Aug. 24-27, 2018
Listen to “TV CONFIDENTIAL Show No. 416 with guest David Arnoff” on Spreaker.
First hour: Chuck Harter joins Ed for Part 2 of our look at the era of pop music TV shows from the mid to late 1960s. This week we focus on such syndicated shows as The Lloyd Thaxton Show, Shebang (with Casey Kasem), Hollywood a Go Go (aka Ninth Street West), Shivaree, and Groovy. Second hour: Ed welcomes iconic rock photographer David Arnoff. Known among followers of punk rock and underground music, David’s interest in music—and, particularly, the music of British bands—was shaped by such shows as Shindig, Hullabaloo, The Lloyd Thaxton Show and other pop music shows that he watched as a teenager in the 1960s. Topics include the Beatles concert at Dodger Stadium in 1966 (which David attended, along with Robert Crane); meeting Boyce and Hart and Davy Jones of The Monkees by accident; and how a lot of punk artists, such as Johnny Thunders and The Heartbreakers, were fans of such shows as The Honeymooners and The Untouchables. David’s book, Shot in the Dark: The Collected Photography of David Arnoff, is a collection of more than 150 black and white photographs, circa 1976 to 1985, of such punk rock performers as Patti Smith, The Clash, Blondie, Nick Cave, Lydia Lunch, X, The Damned, Ian Dury, Misfits, The Ramones, The Cramps, Lux Interior, Poison Ivy, David Johansen, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Joan Jett, and Elvis Costello—all in their prime and, in many cases, before they become well known to the public. Shot in the Dark also includes personal insights and eyewitness accounts from many of the artists photographed in the book, including Motorhead, Nick Cave, X, Jayne/Wayne County, Walter Lure, and The Dead Boys.

Coming soon to TV CONFIDENTIAL: Marc Cushman, author of Long Distance Voyagers: The Story of The Moody Blues, Vol. 1 (1965-1979), on the origins of the band, including how they got their name; how their use of the Mellotron gave the Moodies their unique symphonic sound; the band’s friendship with The Beatles, and how The Moodies’ understanding of what The Beatles went through helped shape their approach to their own music; how FM radio was a major factor in the band’s success in America; and how a bathroom played a key role in the development of Nights in White Satin. Vol. 1 of Long Distance Voyagers is available now in hardcover and as an eBook through Jacobs Brown Media Group

One of the best rock photographers of his generation, David Arnoff is particularly known among followers of the punk rock and underground music scene. In many respects, however, David’s interest in music—and, particularly, the music of British bands—was shaped by the pop music TV shows that he watched as a teenager in the 1960s, including Shindig, Hullabaloo and The Lloyd Thaxton Show. We will ask David about that, plus he’ll share a few stories about watching The Beatles play at Dodger Stadium in 1966, meeting Boyce and Hart and Davy Jones of The Monkees by accident, and how a lot of punk artists, such as Johnny Thunders and The Heartbreakers, were fans of such shows as The Honeymooners and The Untouchables. David Arnoff will join us in our first hour.

David’s book, Shot in the Dark: The Collected Photography of David Arnoff, is a collection of more than 150 black and white photographs, circa 1976 to 1985, of such punk rock performers as Patti Smith, The Clash, Blondie, Nick Cave, Lydia Lunch, X, The Damned, Ian Dury, Misfits, The Ramones, The Cramps, Lux Interior, Poison Ivy, David Johansen, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Joan Jett, and Elvis Costello—all in their prime and, in many cases, before they become well known to the public. The British publication Photo Monitor describes Shot in the Dark as “a mixture of anarchic live photographs, in-your-face portraits and plenty of ad hoc documentation, all shrouded in high contrast and dark shadows,” adding that the presentation of the book resembles “a neo-gothic thriller set against the contrasting background of the always-sunny California; mirroring the dark side of the City of Angels, where the ghouls depicted revel in their depravity and debauchery once the sun goes down.” Shot in the Dark also includes personal insights and eyewitness accounts from many of the artists photographed in the book, including Motorhead, Nick Cave, X, Jayne/Wayne County, Walter Lure, and The Dead Boys, plus a conversation between David Arnoff and Lydia Lunch.

Chuck Harter will also join us this week for Part 2 of our look at the era of pop music TV shows from the mid to late 1960s. These shows broke the mold in television not only because they featured popular music acts every week, but because they were specifically programmed for young viewers. This week we’ll focus on such syndicated pop music shows such as The Lloyd Thaxton Show, Shebang (with Casey Kasem), Hollywood a Go Go (aka Ninth Street West), Shivaree, and Groovy.
