The All My Children hitmakers just keep a coming.  To honor the ending of the 40-year-old soap come this September, more fan favorite and legacy characters have been set to return to Pine Valley for one final curtain call.  Add to this list the sexy darling of the Santos family, Maria Santos, played by Eva LaRue!

TV Guide broke the news that: “La Rue, who currently stars in CBS’ CSI: Miami, will be back for several episodes beginning in July. And,  All My Children insiders say the show is fielding calls from many former cast members about potentially returning for its final days.” As soapers know already, Josh Duhamel will be back as Leo in August for one to two episodes.

Fan recall that  Dr. Maria Santos Grey  first turned up in Pine Valley in 1993, left in 1997 and returned again in 2002. Maria moved to California permanently in 2005 after she spun out of control following the death of her husband Edmund.

Although I’m loving all of the returns, the big return for the end of AMC should be David Canary as Adam Chandler!


Yes! I agree and I too am loving all the returns of the heavy hitters but what would the end be without Adam and Brook as well. I was really happy that Thorsten Kaye was coming back but now all the others great news. I hope their salaries bankrupt these dweebs at ABC-Disney, it infuriates me to the bone the remarks and cavalier attitude that this guy Frons has.


I can hardly wait to see every one of these characters!!! And I’m hoping we’ll see more … it wouldn’t be right without Adam and Brooke at the end. But it will be so bittersweet knowing we’re losing an American Classic after 41 short years.

I just hope as each of the ABC soaps ends, ABC loses it’s daytime audience for that timeslot … and eventually, will lose a big chunk of it primetime audience as well. I know I am no longer watching anything EXCEPT the 3 soaps on ABC right already. Once they’re gone … bye bye ABC! Disney too … have already quit watching anything Disney and will never spend another dime in their parks or any of their DVDs and toys, etc.

My hope is once the soaps are gone … ABC gets canceled.

See ya ABC and all your primetime shows as well. Once soaps are cancelled you will be gone from all soaps viewers. Soap viewers are the most Loyal Fans and believe me, you will go big time Downhill in ratings from all your shows. Nobody wants another stupid cooking show, or another talk show w/ Hollywood people glorifying thier life. If we want that we already have enough shows to watch. Don’t you know there is a cooking network, not to mention regular talk shows w/ cooking segmnets. What about recipies on internet and cookbooks. What a discusting idea for you to come up with, you don’t care about any of us loyal viewers so enjoy going bankrupt! Its what ABC deserves, I won’t watch any ABC even at night just like all the millions who watch ABC soaps. Hope it was worth it.


It just breaks my heart to see my two favorite soaps go off the air after all these years. I can’t imagine living without them everynite on soapnet. Now their won’t be anything to look forward to anymore. I keep hoping that I’ll read somewhere that some other network would pick it up, but so far it looks very dim.

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.

All My Children Alum Kim Delaney Joins The Cast of CHICAGO FIRE!

Pine Valley’s Jenny Gardner, who is all grown up and had a successful career in primetime television and films, has landed a primo role on NBC’s hit drama, Chicago Fire!

Casting news has revealed that Kim Delaney is joining the show in Season 6 where she will play the role of Jennifer Sheridan, the mother of Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney).

According to Deadline, Kim’s new role as Jennifer Sheridan is described as “warm, scripture-quoting and church-going. At one point she may have partied like it was 1979, but now it looks like she’s on the path of the straight and narrow. If you ask her, she’s moved on from the past, namely her messy divorce from her ex-husband Benny (Treat Williams), but old habits die very hard.”

Chicago Fire is currently on hiatus until after the Winter Olympics, when it begins again on March 1st.  As viewers know, in the last episode prior to the break, Kelly and Casey (Jesse Spenver) were seen jumping off a roof of a building while it was in flames in an exciting cliffhanger. (more…)
