Fortunately, the producers never lost hope and finally reached an agreement today.

Wow! Given the amount of drama going on behind-the-scenes with Ann Curry on this one, it must have been nice to receive this kind of accolade!
During yesterday's 39th Daytime Emmy Awards, it was no surprise to see General Hospital take home the Best Drama Series Award, as its the only surviving daytime soap on ABC these days, but we were pretty floored to see The Today Show on NBC win for Best Morning Show!
Sorry, Good Morning America! Guess the ratings aren't everything!
Check out the full list of winners…AFTER THE JUMP!

James Franco is willing to do anything and everything.
The actor became a movie star in Spider-Man, but has since decided to do everything from writing a novel to appearing in General Hospital. Now Franco has decided to return to the land of soap opera and is beginning a multi-episode arc on Nick at Nite's newest series, Hollywood Heights.
Check out a preview of Franco's first episode (above)!
The drama follows an aspiring songwriter and high school student who gets her big break when she meets pop superstar Eddie Duran. Tune in tonight at 9pm to watch the network's first primetime drama and catch Franco's portrayal of Hollywood movie producer Osbourne Silver next week on June 29.
All this hard, serious method acting is clearly giving Jimmy a migraine!

The studio has just released some behind-the-scenes footage from the movie … and its spooktacular!
It's pretty cool to just get a peek at Johnny Deep and Tim Burton working together without them realizing they're on camera.
