Eeep It hasn’t even aired yet but Erika Slezack mentioned liking being in her hands… hope all is okay with her.


Maybe OLTL wants to have RC back and GH could get a new head writer
or our great old writers, who gave us all our great love story couples and
fantastic story lines…..


I highly doubt they want RC back.


Hell no. Ron must stay at Gh with Frank


ARE YOU CRAZY!!!! No old GH writers back!! They where ruining GH!!! Ron & Frank ARE AMAZING!!! Love stories please it was all mob driven, now I like the mob stuff but not shoved down my throat daily!!! BRAVO FRANK & RON

Jeffrey Jonas Moree

I agree i was sick of the mob stories all the time too!


I wish Ron Carlivati could write OLTL and GH. The writers chosen for the AMC and OLTL revivals don’t give me a lot of hope for the shows’ success…


Ron is doing a fantastic job with GH – he is preserving the history of the show. Even Tony Geary, Jane Elliot and Kin Shriner have given him and Frank props for saving GH. He isn’t going anywhere let alone to OLTL.

Seems very strange that Susie B Horgan would leave soap already. Maybe she really does have a very personal reason – something to do with her family and home life and nothing to do with OLTL????? On the other hand, maybe she didn’t get along with head writer!!!!!! Another mystery in the life of Soaps!!!!!!

She is Erika Slezak’s friend & I hope things are ok. Erika liked her writing so I hope it doesn’t hurt Viki. I hope Susie will be happy wherever she goes.


Something’s wrong there, not liking this however but could be anything.


maybe susan decided this will not work at all. i have wrote many many times here. i did say that one life to live will be a big hit. i hope i am right. lets pray everyone and hopefully everyone will watch one life to live. this is the last chance everyone. if know one watches it will be cancelled. we need sexy foxy roxy back on one life to live. producers call ilene now. i dont care if she is on contract or recuring. just get her back on our soap. roxy was funny and always made me laugh.


Makes me wonder if she really is leaving for personal reasons, or was it backstage conflict: maybe different opinions of how the storyline should go? Who knows? Hopefully there isnt more problems ahead!


I’m inclined to think along these lines.

Perhaps Prospect Park wanted her stories to be racier or politically-toned in nature?

I loved her writing for “One Life to Live” around 1995 and 1996. She wrote some of the best material for Blair, Todd and Marty. THIS REALLY SUCKS!


I missed a lot of good stuff from what ive read what the story was then…i had a lot going on in my life at that time i rarely could watch so i understand if she left for personal reasons but everyone has problems at some point in their life and rarely leave their job…you could be right about them wanting her stories be racier and politically toned in nature, and id leave too if that was the case…i like good old fashioned romance, family drama and mystery in character driven storylines. But i guess a lot of people seem not to want that too much anymore. Everything is too faced paced and writers today seem to only care about what they can get away with instead of good storytelling. I dont mind it a tad racier and a few extra foul words wont upset me as long as the’story engages me but i could still do without the racier adult stuff and obscene language. Had this been like that i was a kid i wouldnt have been able to watch soaps and not be a huge fan like i am today.


Sounds like there are issues already with this relaunch. Good thing the three actors will be on GH!

Leaving for personal reasons can mean anything from a sickness in the family to I can’t stand my boss to my boss can’t stand me. Whatever the low down I am sure they are so invested in this project that her departure will not derail anything. I wish her well and hope whatever cause her to resign isn’t too serious.


So sorry to hear this. I certainly wish her well.

(don’t do over-thinking and making it something other than it is )


i hopt this not hurt the show. I hope this is not a bad sign. I wish the show so much good luck, to all the writers, crew, actors, etc.


looks like the thing is imploding already and it hasn’t even aired




I”ll just say… I hope the envelope isn’t being pushed to far…


All the actors at OLTL seem to be happy, and that tells me there is some good storytelling going on. I hate to see a good storyteller go! I hope they get someone in there who understands the core of the characters and what makes them tick (aka their history and moods). Side note: FV and RC did a good job under ABC but they need to STAY w/ ABC and let us have back the OLTL that we fell in love with.


I had heard that there has been some conflict as to how much screen time/stories the veteran characters are getting vs the “newbies” and Susie was not happy with being told to go in that direction. Hope that’s not going to be the case.


I can see this being the case.

Which means, we probably will only see Vicki, Clint and Dorian once a week. Pretty much as often as we saw Renee and Nigel when the show was on ABC.


From the brief conversation I was able to have with her outside the studio when we held a welcome back rally…I doubt it had anything to do with problems inside the studio or with OLTL. I don’t know anything for sure, just my own feeling. I believe it is completely personal.
Best wishes Susan.


I agree. I dont remember where I read it, but I felt she had some other project she was working on that had not taken off yet. I think she had took this opportunity until that project began. It probably happened sooner then what she thought.

I am sure she had a hand in getting OLTL running, and is left in good hands.

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,
