Lord, I can’t wait for spring and to start streaming these shows from my HuluPLUS. Will be nice to have more to chose from than what we have now. Showkiller Jill Farren Phelps has turned “Young and the Restless” into a 5-day-a-week joke.

LOL c’mon Y&R ,no matter how boring it is and it’s use of recycled couples it is the #1 soap..
Heck, no reporter or blogger can write Y&R as just the Y&R they have to add; the #1 soap.. which it truly is not..
GH beats Y&R hands down any day of the week ..

i wholeheartedly, agree; more soaps to choose from

try as i might… to give DAYS press…. it’s damn’ing… however, it’s my cross to bear….

GH… is helping me crest the naysayers….

Very good, simple, & to the point 🙂

Do we know if these versions will allow coarse language like the F word or will it be more family orientated?

jim

I dont know which version you prefer but its been hinted that coarse language will be used and possibly fleeting nudity. Thats unfortunately the only way they know how to update these shows today. I dont think itll be too much, and will give it chance b4 i judge it. I know some people wont tune in even if a little coarse language is used and fleeting nudity. Hopefully ill be okay with it because i miss these shows. But if it does go beyond my taste i wont support it, and it doesnt bother me if others do.We all have our right to choose. But PP should realize these shows have an established fan base and if they add unnecesarry coarse language and fleeting nudity no matter how little they use it, those adults offended by it will tune out and wont let their children watch, and they need all the future generations they can get to keep these show running successfully. Some people claim that soaps need that stuff for these shows to compete against cable but the real test to prove thats true is to run these more adult versions against the current soaps that are on the networks. I watch Britains Coranation Street on occasion and it is written very current with multigenerational middle class blue collar families of different ethnic backgrounds written with gritty realism without too many foul language or fleeting nudity shown. Now thats groundbreaking. Too bad the people here dont all see it that way. But at the same time i dont see why we need so much reality in most all our tv shows, especially soaps. Somtimes i like to escape the real world for at least a few hours a day. But i guess im becoming part of a minority.

Personally, I don’t care either way if there’s language or not. It won’t make or break it for me as a fan. All that matters is that if the writing is good & it engages me, i’ll definitely tune in.

Troy Turner

Grow up, will ya-I’m sick of all the bitching and complaining before one scene is shown. Watch Leave It To Beaver reruns if you can’t handle it.

Dave Bedford
Dave Bedford

uh, how am I bitching?! I asked a simple question with a straightforward “yes or no” answer.

jim

I wasnt complaing about anything. I was answering a question plus adding how id like to see groundbreaking stories done the way Coranation Street does them with more ethnic characters and lower to middle class families. I feel todays soaps are too upper middle class. It takes more to be groundbreaking than adding a cuss word or a little t&a. These shows need good stories to bring us in. I SAID I WAS GIVING THE SHOW A CHANCE B4 A JUDGE THE DANG THING! Iv watched shows with some adult content and it doesnt bother me. I was only saying not all these shows need it to attract us fans. We like good well written drama and thats all it takes to get us to watch! If you dont like bitching or complaing what do you think you are doing now? And i do watch Leave it to Beaver reruns which by the way has outlived many of todays shows with his warm family content and for good reason. A lot of people still have morals and good taste. ” Gee whiz, Mrs Cleaver, some people just dont get it.”

jim

I hope my response to you wasnt misunderstood like this other reader thinks. It does take good writing to engage us as you said. I wasnt bitching or complaining and i know you werent too like this other person thinks we were. All i was trying to say is that it takes more than coarse language and t&a to be groundbreaking and its good stories to hold our interest that i agree with you on.Some cussing isnt going to tune me out as well. I was saying that if i dont like what i see when i see it i wont watch. Also i felt soaps are too upper middle class and thats why i made the suggestion that our serials should be more like Britains Coranation Street which shows characters who are more lower middle class blue collar families with different etnic and social backgrounds that most of us could relate too. Its gritty,raw realism without farfetched stories with some adult content that doesnt depend too much on the latter to engage you. Its all about the drama.

I don’t love how the l in live is under the n, but I do respect and appreciate that oltl is all lower case. One Life to Live traditionally had all upper case or lower case letters as the logo (with the exception of that awful mid 90s logo where the word Life was a mix. All My Children logo looks great to me.

Sam

I’m not loving the logos.

They are too 70s and OLTL is not capitalized as a proper name should be. Not sure I like having new titles either, but the old ones weren’t great. The older blue scenes were the best.

Also I’m concerned about the photos I’ve seen. Are they building all new sets? I believe you ran an interview with Jerry van Dorn where he said PP bought all the old sets. If Llanview doesn’t look like the Llanview we all know and love, the show won’t feel right and might be difficult for fans to accept. I would for me.

Also, coarse language is a bad move, I wouldn’t watch it then. I think a lot of fans will agree on that.

What difference do the sets make? We are getting our shows back! My favorite will always be OLTL, we have the most important cast members so I’m just hoping for some really good stories.

I like both logos. They’re different but reminiscent of the old versions.

I like both logos but much like the cast photos I find myself gravitating towards the All My Children the logo seems more “classic” but updated just a tad. Which is strange because my soap is OLTL nothing against there pictures and logo I just enjoy AMC’s more.

The logos look good, prefer the one for AMC. What I am really excited about is the new show openings…I would love to see OLTL use the music (although updated) from one of their old openings….”here’s where you go when it looks like the rain won’t end”….the one that Jeffrey Osborn I believe sung on.

Cannot wait for OLTL to return!

I’d love for them to use that theme song too. Peabo Bryson did the original. I’d love have Kassie DePaiva record a new version.

The One Life to Live logo is very digital modern ..

The AMClogo is in old time script ..

I do like OLTL logo best ..

These look really old and retro. Nothing new looking and progressive abt them at all. That must be appropriate though considering the lack of Asian american representation on amc. There are no Asian american chars on amc while there are only 2 recurring Indian american chars on oltl who were not even styled by george kotsiopolus for the cast photo. The Asian americans don’t get the same priority as the other chars. How is any of this new? It’s the same thing these old soaps have done before.

It’s great that both show return from the dead. I never watched AMC or OLTL, but I will start just to support and prove that there is still an audience for those shows…makes me miss Sunset Beach and Santa Barbara a little bit more…

Loving the new logos for both series. It’s quite interesting takes on both of them. Now let’s see how the opening sequences go.

Wow, a graphic designer with a basic font library spent all of five minutes creating these logos. They look like watered down versions of the most recent logos, so what was the point?

mo

Nice. The ‘l’ under the ‘n’ is a bit unnerving, but okay.

I like the OLTL logo! I just cant wait to hear the new themes. I hope that this time around they have closing credits. I believe that the theme music of the soaps is what makes the show! I mean any show that you love, even if your not watching it, as soon as you hear the theme you automatically know…thats my show!!!!

susan M.

I hope they don’t change the OLTL ” s theme song too much! That you can’t recognize it
! Have to go with OLTL which is my all time favorite soap! Hope they didn’t mess around too much with the theme songs. I like OLTL theme as is!

I hope that Walt Wiley joins!

I have a question for everyone – Isn’t the important thing our shows are back? Isn’t this what we fought for? Why don’t we wait until the first episodes air and take it from there. I can’t wait until April to see my faves!

New? These logos are similar to the old ones. A sophomore in high school could have desinged better logos. Safe soap writers, same soap crew behind the scenes…I’m concerned how different these reboots will be and if they can attract a new audience. That is what they need to do to survive. Sadly, I don’t feel confident that there are enough changes behind the scenes to take the soaps into the future.

Joliefan Forever

What are Safe Writers? Same soap Crew? Oh you mean Camera men and what not? The Soap crew had nothing to do with what happened to OLTL…..

The logos are fine.It’s funny to hear complaints about them being similar to the old ones,when so many are afraid the shows won’t be the same as they were.

Wow couldn’t you just be happy your show is coming back! Who cares about logos and backgrounds, Just enjoy the series again. Stop nitpicking, And just be happy for the second chance!!!

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!

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

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…)
