I think one reason is that the show still sticks to the half hour format. I can’t say great stories because all the shows have great stories. It is good to see that this show reaches out to so many people in the world. We should see many more years of B&B with news like this.

The international embrace of B&B is notable but I think the serial is produced with that in mind, hence the lack of depth. It plays like telenovelas where the over-the-top surprises and endless bedroom dances serve as forefront plots. That approach makes it my least favorite of the four legacy daytime dramas on the air now. But I will never deny this unprecedented success, a factor that keeps CBS the lone network that embraces daytime as a viable programming option and promotes it.

Hi Lakovas,. I totally agree with you.

Sorry, meant to write Lakovos.

I keep hoping that NBC and ABC take notes from… CBS

before it’s too late

BUILD around your daytime . respectively, we all want this genre to survive

hats off to CBS

another hope – that NBC and ABC – know – that their daytime would be gone if not for – Days of OUR Lives and General Hospital

B&B didn’t get this way by being unadventurous and ugly… 🙂

Patrick

“that” is a powerplay pic.. if ever

which should be the “sole” focus of this show

who’s tired of : Brooke and Ridge? I’d throw Katie in that , as well

this show ought to be all about : Rick and Maya period

for it to be relevant and show

Patrick

I hope we get a heads up .. on the debut of Ingo Rademacher

Really? Where in Soweto will they be?

Days Of Our Lives

The Chew Cancelled After 7 Seasons; A Slice Of Justice For All My Children Fans?

Karma is a bitch! ABC announced yesterday that the foodie series The Chew has been axed after seven seasons. 

The Chew lost significant viewers when ABC fired main co-host chef, Mario Batali after reports of alleged sexual harassment over many years. Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, and Michael Symon have remained the regular series hosts.

In addition, The Chew dropped 17% with women in the 18-49 demo and this has been its least watched season since its debut in 2011.  As ABC Daytime fans know, The Chew replaced iconic soap opera All My Children, when ABC made the decision to cancel the beloved soap and replace it with the food show.

So, let’s take a look at the numbers: All My Children lasted 41 years, while The Chew lasted 7 seasons. Hmm …

ABC noted that The Chew will cease production at the end of this season, but will continue to air until September with all-new episodes in June.  In addition, ABC announced that Good Morning America will expand to three hours.  Thus, switching up the ABC morning line-up.

So, are you glad that The Chew got fried?  Is this justice for All My Children fans who miss their beloved Pine Valley?  Comment below.

Welcome To The New Michael Fairman TV: A Note From Michael Fairman

Photo Credit: Duff Images

By now, many of you have come across and seen that Michael Fairman On Air On Soaps has evolved into the new and exciting platform, Michael Fairman TV.

I hope you take the time to tour the new site, and enjoy its new look, new features, and extended coverage; which will focus on, and include, not only your beloved daytime soap operas, but primetime television drama, a slice of reality programming, as well as popular streaming and digital series.

This site has been a long time in the making, and we’ve been working very hard behind the scenes to make this transition as smooth as possible.  As with any change, we know that it will take some time for all of us, including me, to get used to it, and adjust to it.

I truly appreciate the community that we have built for the last 10 years, and I value each and every one of you.  As with any new launch, there will be small tweaks and revisions along the way that do come up.  Our goal is to make the best user experience for you, and to bring you the news, interviews, and coverage that you expect from the Michael Fairman brand.

I know many of you are already saying you miss the old Michael Fairman Soaps, but this is an upgrade, not a demolition.  That being said, Michael Fairman Soaps was no longer sustainable as is.  The site needed to grow, evolve, change, and modernize with the times. With modernization, part of that is making the site accessible, functional on mobile phones and devices, which we now are.  While some things can’t remain the same forever, we are always interested in your input.

I am very proud and excited for this new chapter.  I hope you will enjoy everything that is to come, and I appreciate all of your loyal support.  So, let’s christen this site together and celebrate turning over a new page.

With gratitude,

XO

Michael
