Tuesday’s episode of CBS’ The Young and the Restless looks to feature Abby (Melissa Ordway) confronting her mother Ashley (Eileen Davidson) on what went down during the inferno that tore through the Newman Enterprise building on Halloween.

As viewers remember, Ashley was trapped in the fire alone with Stitch (Sean Carrigan) and he told her he loved her, but he is set to marry Abby.  However the two (Ashley and Ben AKA Stitch) revealed to each other they have quite a connection.

Now Abby is set to have a showdown with her mother as to why Ashley lied about exactly what Stitch confessed when he thought he was going to have his last breathes in the fire.

Do you think Ashley should do anything to have Stitch for herself, or  let her daughter and Stitch go on with their lives and watch from the sidelines?  Do you want Abby and Ben to say their “I do’s”?  What do you think of this storyline?  Watch the preview for Tuesday’s episode after the jump.  Then, share your thoughts in the comment below!

This is so hard to say either way because I like them both. I think Stitch is better with Ashley but no matter who he chose it’s a soap-opera, the’ll end in divorce so he can go with the other one. Yesterday I actually turned it off for the first time in ages but I was so excited about Jack spilling the beans on Victor and having Victor arrested for once in his miserable life. I was so angry when he backed down then I waited to see if Phyllis would step-up but she didn’t so I turned it off, on went Christmas music and laundry was done.

Chrystie_Delancey

“On went Christmas music and laundry was done.” And don’t you feel like you got so much accomplished instead? 🙂

I am really saddened at the farce this show has become. Used to be, not too long ago, that you could turn on CBS and watch an engaging daytime drama called THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS. Now what airs instead is a very poorly written comedy, but I don’t know what it is called. It definitely is not the show that I have known and loved for decades.

What I wouldn’t do to have Maria Arena Bell back. Her stories dragged on forever, but at least she told soap story and not shock and awe.

k/kay

Nikki I do not watch enough to know for sure but what little I have seen and read I would say the NEW Billy is coming on for Phyllis not Victoria which I myself think if JT stands a chance that’s the way it should go. I think they have started it with BIlly drinking again etc and JT has a knack for playing the playboy so let’s get him back to womanizing and Phyllis back to her feisty self . I think we have had enough of boring Jack and Phyllis and on again off again Billy & Victoria. I think that is exactly why JFP went after Jason Thompson because before they had him as a family man he played playboy and as someone pointed out to me he was being wasted on GH.

Nikki

You are so right I do feel like I accomplished a lot that needed to be done. I still remember the beautiful Christmases with the Abbott’s and the house was decorated to the nines. I read that Beth(Tracey Abbott) is coming back for the holidays. I wish they would keep her on for good. I’m just sick of that whole Newman bunch. Victoria always forgives her father no matter what he does. Nikki has been nothing but a side kick to Victor for so long and she always has the nerve to apology’s for Victor’s cruelty but she’s always on his arm and for goodness sake either change Victor’s personality and soften him up or make him guilty and send him to jail.

MBmomof3

I’m right there with you Nikki. So disappointing.

Iakovos

Does anyone remember when Ashley and her mother Dina were each romancing/being romanced by Marc Mergeron oh, about 30-35 years ago?

Alan

Ashley and Dina were both involved with Eric Garrison. Marc Mergeron was Dina’s stepson.

kevin

Ashley was involved with Eric Garrison who she found out about Eric and Dina and Ashley stopped seeing Eric for Mark Mergeron who happened to be Dina’s Stepson.
Oh how I miss The Young and the Restless, the way it use to be…

Iakovos

Of course. Duh! Thank you, Alan and Kevin for the correction. I do miss Y&R the way it used to be, too, Kevin. For some reason, I keep thinking about the plot when Katherine sent John puzzle pieces to expose Jill’s affair. Classic fun! And I love Jess Walton but I did like the vampier Jill from back in the day, too.

MBmomof3

I would LOVE a classic soap channel. I so enjoyed the flashback on yesterday’s episode, though very brief. I’ve only been watching Y&R about 10 years or so, when it showed up on SOAPnet. I was an ABC soap fan and watched DOOL too, but rarely caught the CBS soaps back in the day. When I started watching Y&R even back then I was completely drawn in and understood why it was the #1 soap all those years.

kevin

Iakovos…I remember the puzzle too…Well, we have the memories of the good old days…I know I have brought this up a few times but it seem TPTB will not listen, at least bring the classic background music back then maybe the show will somewhat feel like it use to be…So miss the Brooks, Foster, Williams…Hey everyone, I do love change but only if it’s for the better and alot it’s not. THANKS for listening everyone.

CeeCee

This is not about what Ashley should do. She is hitting 60….way past her prime to chase rainbows, especially with a much younger man who is at the threshold of marrying her daughter. This is typical soap fodder. Around and around we go, everybody!!
If I were Abby, I would leave both in my dust; take a minute and walk through fresher and greener pastures.

CeeCee

Please, Abby. Don’t let this guy sweet talk you into marriage. Your heart will end up in stitches. Ha!

k/kay

Oh the old days of Ashley she is not written or portrayed as what Bill Bell created said the same for Sharon, Phyllis, Jack the list goes on and on yes Mr. Bell is gone but his memory and his love of his characters should live on.was he the perfect writer no but he knew his characters yes he was big on triangles etc I could tell you repeat stories he did but he always made you root for them I miss the days of crying and feeling have we so become a society that we have no feeling no emotion just a quick fix my daughter thinks we have I hope she is wrong. Well back to the books next year three more hours and I have my degree and then I will let this board know what my degree is in. It will blow your minds!! Have a very Merry Christmas and a great New Year!!!!

CeeCee

@K/Kay.
I hear you, Kay. I am not too young to think about the old days. As I said I started watching avidly at fourteen. I am now twenty-nine and I consider fifteen years ago the ‘olden days’. Lol. I grew up watching Y&R, with my Gran. What I am saying is Mr. Bell ll would have never changed Jack’s character. This is not the true Jack.
Happy Holidays to you also, my lady. And, congrats and more power to you for getting your college degree. Later.

Timmm

Watch out Tina Fey!

CeeCee

@Timmm.
Thank you, my Timmm. I will take that as a compliment. Tina Fey…..I wish!

CeeCee

@K/Kay.
I so agree with you, Kay. I have been lamenting Jack’s and Phyllis’s relationship forever. For one thing, this Phyllis is too young for Jack…..he’s old enough to be her father.
What you are saying fits like a glove….everywhichway one looks at it. I am so glad you brought it to the fore. It makes so much sense, and I truly hope the PTB go there. Jason and Gina would be perfect together. I suppose the bosses are paving the way by having Billy suddenly needing Phyllis’s shoulder upon which to cry. Burgess and Gina would have never worked. I am licking my lips in anticipation, lol. This should really be something to see. It is time Jack come down this perennial youthful horse of his. I can’t stand him as much as I can’t stand Victor. Each calls the kettle black. But, in my book they have both done things that makes our hair stand on end, lol. One is no better than the other, albeit the ‘higher-ups’ want us to forget the dastardly acts Jack has committed.
I strongly feel that the Jack character has been holding Phyllis down with a firm booted foot on her back.
Gina Tognoni will never replace Michelle Stafford’s Phyllis for me, but being held back by Peter B makes it even more difficult. I know we are not seeing Gina’s greatness. She’s stuck with Jack. It seems that she has to dance to his tune. I have never known Phyllis to be a follower of anyone. This is why I am so happy GH is starting to show Michelle’s Nina as a take-charge character, editor of a magazine. Nina is beginning to test her wings….soon she will take flight. And, I really do not care how much people don’t like her.
But, I digress…..At the very least Gina and Jason are more age appropriate, and much more relatable. Great post, Kay.

Chrystie_Delancey

I agree, CeeCee.

I think pairing Jason with Gina will give EACH actor a change to reinvent their assumed characters. They will both be in a relationship that none of their predecessors has been in so it will be fresh and they will be able to make it their own.

I also feel like poor Gina has been kept on a short leash. She is capable of so much more.

The fact that she was duped into bedding her husband’s imposter (rape) and hasn’t been at Victor’s carotid … LITERALLY … is NOT typical of Phyllis. Oh the writers can say she is not herself since the drug that Victor gave her but please!

Jason can’t be on my Y&R screen soon enough. It will feel like a warm, spring day when he arrives. This show so desperately needs something to look forward to.

CeeCee

@Chrystie:
So glad we are in sync about Jason and Gina. I do respect your view, Chrystie, which makes me very glad that you too, see this couple as starting anew….fresh start, as it were. As you say, make it their own.

CeeCee

@Harry.
Wow! That’s quite a compliment coming from you, Harry. So much ‘stitching’ going on. We should start a Stitching Club.

SZima

Eileen is 56. Sean is 41.
A 15 year difference isn’t that huge…I’ve done that myself with much success!
LOL

CeeCee

I am glad to hear age was not an issue for you. I suppose if it does not matter to the people involved, then it’s no one’s business. And, I am not being facetious, here. However, did you hook-up/marry your future son-in-law? That’s my issue.

Harry

Eileen is rather ageless, and I agree fifteen years is not a big deal.
But fear not! Today Ashely finally met Dr Neville (Michael E Knight).
I saw sparks and I liked it. I want Dr Neville to fly out of the orbit of the Winter’s clan and today it finally happened. I just hope he’s on more than once a month.
PS. Cee Cee, your post had me in “Stiches”!

Timmm

Plus, Eileen looks fantastic!

Rose

CeeCee…why do you think because Ashley is “hitting 60…she is way past her prime to chase rainbows?” She’s looking pretty good for her age,” don’t you think?” And she can probably carry on a better conversation, and has had some interesting life experiences to talk about compared to Abby, etc. Some younger guys find this attractive. And I hope for anyone who reach certain cutoff ages some people have made for them, they are always chasing rainbows of many kinds, and this doesn’t mean just affairs. Else you might as well fold your tent and call it a day.

In this case I don’t think Stitch is a great catch for anyone, but sparks and electricity can still happen…even when you are over 50 (shudder to some) and beyond. And since it’s a soap they writers do their thing about setting up a potential mother/daughter conflict.

I don’t mean this as a criticism, but as someone who has been younger, and now not so young. I’ve had a chance to modify some of my opinions. Great interview is with Jane Fonda on CBS called a Note To My Younger Self. 🙂

CeeCee

Oh, Rose, my dear friend. Some men want to have kids. Ben is relatively a young man. Ashley cannot give him a child. Yes, they could adopt, but to me she is too old to start a family. It is my opinion, Rose, whether you agree with it or not. Marriages with such a big age difference….either grinder…..never work out. That’s all. ‘Nite.

CeeCee

That should read: either gender, not grinder. Lol.

Rose

CeeCee…I may have sounded a little flippant re: age, marriage and kids. It’s just that there are more kind of relationships between men and women than getting married and having a family. If there is love and respect between them I’m all for it…even if there is a difference in ages. I’ve seen and heard about some with bigger age differences that have been very successful? At the same time there are stats on the divorce rate in the US…up to 50%?

I”m not sure what it was between Stitch and Ashley…sometimes there can be an adrenalin rush when colleagues work on a project…in their case the “kissing” perfume. Wonder if this one of the reasons many companies frown on employees of the same company having relationships.

And I do admit to “rolling my eyes” when I hear yet another story of older men marrying younger women for what some would call them “eye candy,” ego building. Beside it takes older guys off the market for women closer to their age, and it makes me sad for these women who may have sold out for money, second father, over just insecurities. Geez, here I am making pretty harsh assumptions…I try not to do this. Plus, bothers me for older men/younger girls, they used to be called May/September relationships. But with older women with younger men, the women are called cougars. I love animals, but I think the intent was of a more predatory nature.

But I do enjoy hearing how happy you are with a guy you really love and your kids! Love good news stories on matters of family and heart.

Harry

My only issue with the age difference is that no one addresses it. They also don’t address the weirdness of this mother/daughter love triangle I mean, it’s creepy! While Ben was begging Ashely to be his, I kept waiting for her to say two things: 1. “Ben, you want children and I cannot give you that–we are at different points in our lives .” 2. “We can never be happy if our relationship is predicated upon hurting my daughter. This will never work.”

Ron

I am right with you on this one. The actress playing Abbey has really grown the past few months, and she has zilch chemistry with Stitch, who has zilch chemistry with any woman on this show. The guy needs to find an old school marm!

As I suggested a few weeks back, Ashley needs an intelligent man, and it seems that is what is happening with Neville, once the writers tone down the “Mad Doctor” motif.

Rose

Cee Cee…I agree age is a big consideration if they want to get married and have kids, but who said they wanted to get married and have kids?

CeeCee

No one did, Rose. I said some men, not all men. To me, fifteen years is a lifetime of a difference, regardless of respect, interests and love. But, as I have indicated, it is my opinion. People have choices. Just making a statement. Let us agree to disagree, yes? My main objection is this triangle with boyfriend, mother and daughter. I find it revolting. What can I say?

Chrystie_Delancey

[Yakkety Sax, the theme from BENNY HILL, begins to play]

What an asinine show this has become. Ashely and Ben (please stop calling him “Stitch!”) were together a milisecond when they had DRUNKEN sex in a shower.

Abby and Ben were together having sex in bed in a hotel room a millisecond after he broke up with Victoria.

Now ask me if I give a rat’s butt who winds up with who!

CeeCee

I want to hug you, Chrystie. You cinched it. Nothing else needs to be said.

Chrystie_Delancey

I love your posts too! 😉

CeeCee

@Chrystie.
Thank you.

Harry

And as I have said many times before, Ben falls in love with everyone! He fell in love with Victoria when she was with Billy. He fell in love with Abby when he was with Victoria. He fell in love with Ashely when he was with Abby.
He’s a confused Lothario for sure. This is why I call him Pepe Le Pew.
People of Genoa City! Lock up your cats!

SZima

And how long did it take for him to bed Victoria?
Man-slut!

Chrystie_Delancey

That’s right, SZima. THEY had drunk sex too … in the back of a car!

CeeCee

I like that term, man-slut. Very original. Lol. Too funny and true. Besides, his head is shaped like a perfect cantaloupe. Imagine running your fingers through that. Ugh!!

Timmm

BITCH [Ben/Stitch] wouldnt have a chance with either of them in real life!

CeeCee

Better yet, Timmm. BITCH…good one!

Mateo

How about they both have sex with Ben at the same time and the one who comes out alive gets him. Either that or Ben dies in the sheets during the 3some. You know Chuck Pratt wants to write that.

CeeCee

Too funny, Mateo. Personally, I wouldn’t touch cantaloupe head with a ten-foot-pole. Ugh….’shiver me timbers’.

penny

Try this on for size Y&R, Stitch marries Abby and they whisk off to zip code 90210 and live happily ever after. This story line along with that Noah triangle is b-o-r-i-n-g and stupid. I’m sorry, I like the actor who plays Stitch I just don’t like his acting in this particular story line and he has as much chemistry with Abby as Victor had with Sharon….ZERO!

Nikki

No I love Abby as well as Ashley. If we’re going to send someone to the 90210 letsw make it Victoria, Victor and Nikki.

CeeCee

Ah, sweet Nikki. I, too love Ashley; always have. But, there is a limit to her youthful escapades. It is a soap, I know. …..but I would never marry a man who has slept with my mother; or, know that there is a probability that my husband and my mother still have forbidden feelings for each other. I have always had a problem when soaps play this card. Now, I can sort of accept this behavior among siblings. But, I draw the line at hopping into bed with daughters/sons-in-law. Both Victor and Nikki have done so. Victor with Sharon…DISGUSTO!!!!! And, Nikki with Cole Howard, one of saintly Victoria’s few husbands. YUCK. So, in that respect, you are soooo right. You know I love and respect your posts. Considering from whence Nikki hails and the slutty life she has led before, during, and after her several marriages….funny how she still manages to have that haughty aura about her; with her nose way up there in the air looking down at people….namely Sharon. Bye, my friend.

Nanci

Dont see chemistry between Ben and Ashley, and their age difference is kinda
a lot, anyway. Used to think Ben and Abby were good together, but now I just
want Abby happy with a guy who is not a fickle dog!
Scratch all 3 of them, and start over, lol.

CeeCee

You can say that again….

Harry

I don’t mind the age difference. However, in real life that age difference would be noted and mentioned often as a conflict or an obstacle. No one ever mentions age differences in soap operas.

CeeCee

@Harry.
Absolutely, Harry. You always make sense to me. I would think that in reality it’s a personal choice. I could never see myself marrying someone fifteen younger or older than I. I don’t understand why people get so upset over my being frank with my feelings. Eileen does look great. She’s beautiful. But, it doesn’t change her age. Bye.

Mary SF

If this triangle continues it will play out later, after Ben and Abby are married. After Ashley fainted in the snow I predict she is dying and her new love will eventually be that Dr. Neville who saved Hilary, who will no doubt find a miracle cure for Ashley as well.

Personally I like to see Jenna come back, win Ben back and they go off into the sunset together. This character started off with so much potential, but the way they wrote him, from being this noble man who gave up his life to protect his mother to this cad who loves who ever is in front him, has given this character an expiry date– imo the sooner he goes the better.

CeeCee

I like it, Mary. Good premise on both counts.

Nikki

I really like Ben but your right Mary his character is boring. I kinda thought the same thing when Ashley entered the restaurant and met him. Ashley is usually more laid back and this time she seemed pushy. If you remember she walked right over and introduced herself interrupting the conversation between Devon & the Doc. I think something is going on there for sure. Maybe she read about him. Now that he got this money from Devon Ashley could get him working in the lab. I just wish they would do something with Victor’s character. He looks like a 70 something year old running around Genoa City thinking he’s Rambo. Maybe the ghost of Christmas past will hit him on the head and give him a heart. While we’re at it. I want him to leave Adam alone. He got what he wants from him now leave him live his life. Keep your word for a change.

CeeCee

Again, Nikki, you’re too sweet. But, at this point nothing will redeem Victor. He has Colleen’s heart; even that didn’t help. Just that monumental feat alone should have been his saving grace. But, not even the Almighty God could turn the devil’s eyes down the path of righteousness. Golly Gee!! I should have been a preacher. Methinks I’m in the wrong profession. Lol.
You have described Victor like no other. Good description. He’s also a Yenta. He spends his days, visiting his children, threatening/bullying others, or create havoc for most.
You may be on to something, Nikki. About Ashley and Neville, I mean. Perhaps there’s a newfound alliance there. Perhaps Ashley is in fear of dying because her tumor is back? Perhaps that is the reason she is hurrying Abby’s and Ben’s wedding along? She wants to see her daughter settled before she dies? Will Dr. Neville save the day? Will Ashley and Dr. Neville become a couple?
Timmm, Harry and I had discussed this possibility way back when. So, Nikki you may have discovered gold.

Chrystie_Delancey

He’s got Colleens’s HEART! 🙂 I think he turned it to ice when it was transplanted into his body.

elm51

i would love to see ashley & dr neville in a meaningful relationship but tptb/writers would probably screw that up too……………………..jmo

SZima

Well said Mary SF!

Alan

Let’s be honest: Ashley can do waaaaaaaaaay better.

Stitch has zero chemistry with either woman. If the writers insist on keeping Stitch around they should make the character an opportunistic bed-hopping scoundrel (he’s already slept with 2 sisters and one of their mothers so it wouldn’t ex try be a stretch) because the sympathetic doc thing ain’t working.

Harry

Alan–indeed! Today Ashely met Dr Simon Neville. I think I heard the angels singing from the rafters.

CeeCee

Pretty loudly, did those angels ding. I heard them too. Michael/Neville is such a catch. That’s one time I would make an exception in age……just to touch that face. His skin is amazing, Harry.

CeeCee

Correction—sing, not ding.

MBmomof3

I’m about done with this show. Victor wins again # 2,296,452. I just can’t with this crap.

Go away, Ben. No one cares. And that’s just the tip of the very cold iceberg this show has become. Where’s Gloria and Jill? Phyllis about to do Billy? No thank you. Ugh!

Michael snubbing Victor’s offer of a cookie was about the only good thing from yesterday’s epi. I do love Mariah, so there’s that.

Harry

That was funny, MbMom. Also, today Victor told Jack that the Abbott family are now poorer than a church mouse.
Now, who talks like that? Victor does! Love him or hate him, he is a classic and truly a unique individual.

MBmomof3

I do love to hate him. I did enjoy Wednesday’s epi. I’d like to see Ashley front-burner, but not with Stitch. I think MEK looks better than ever and I could see the odd doctor and Ashley making an interesting couple. I like Melissa Ordway’s Abby, but I’ve never warmed to Stitch (he’s gross sleeping with mother, daughter, sister). LOVED the flashback of Jack, Vic & Nikki. I wonder if they are going to hook up Phyllis with Billy and revisit Nikki and Jack? Hmmm…

Timmm

I’m used to Victor winning and it really doesnt bother me. What does is Jack always comes off like a powerless wimp! Why doesnt he start a new company and build an empire and shine without Victor able to stick his nose into it! I love Jack but he needs to lead his family for once!

MBmomof3

What bothers me most isn’t necessarily Victor winning EVERY time, but how wimpy it makes Jack look. Not a good look for one of my fave soap characters. I like that Jack more often than not takes the moral high ground. But you can be moral and a winner. Especially in fiction.

Harry

I am tired of Victor always kicking sand in Jack’s face too.
Has anyone else noticed that Jack always looks like he is about to say the F word?

MBmomof3

Ha, Harry, LOL! I thought the same thing!

Timmm

Ladies, Stitch isnt worth the gum on the bottom of my shoe! Family first and go find your own guys. With Ashley passing out in the park this sets up her and Dr. Michael E Knight! Love it!

MBmomof3

Amen! I have sisters, a mom & daughters and can tell you THAT WOULD NEVER HAPPEN! Yuck!

And yes to Ashley & Dr. Neville. (It was also nice to see Ghost John)

CeeCee

That’s what I’ve been trying to say, BM and Timmm. It is disgusting to me….never would happen in my family either. I have three sisters, two brothers and parents as well. Eileen is older than my mother. My nieces are all under twelve, lol. I will not deny the age bothers me too, but it is not lascivious, as long as the people involved are consenting adults (no sharing of relatives, please. Lol) .
Nonetheless, I had a few fans wanting to go a round of word-battle with me for expressing an opinion. Golly Gee!!

Nikki

This whole story line brings me back to the days of the Bold& Beautiful when Brooke married Eric the dad, Ridge son #1, followed by Thorn son #2 then remarried Ridge son #1 again O.M.G. How disgusting.

MBmomof3

Nikki, I think B&B is the most incestuous soap on the air. Which, unfortunately, is saying a lot. It continues to this day with cousins, brothers, fathers, sons, etc. Just gross. It’s Jerry Springer level of stupidity.

damien

so happy to see eileen showcased in a front burner romance! she still rediates beauty and sex appeal as shown when she had many affairs as kirsten on days!!
i hope ashley says front and centre…where she belongs! i really enjoyed seeing her envisioning john and missed their sweet father / daughter relationship!…
however im not impreesed how the writers have decimated ash s and vic s relationship, throughout the abbott/ newman war , ash was always stuck in the middle because of her loyalty to jack but her love and admiration of victor. this made the feud complex and further enraged jack and victor because of her defence of both men.i hope the writers can find a waty to mend ash and vic s friendship / romanctic feelings

CeeCee

Great post, damien.

Patrick

kudos to great post

I do differ… that it would be great to see… a friendship… of sorts… develop between Victor and Ashley

perhaps a teasing flirtatious respect ; an eye to eye real partake of each other history… that it really did boil down to a division of power between the Abbott and Newman

that a love between these two existed but could never really go anywhere

perhaps after all these years… a bond

I could go for the ole curgmudeon; getting this

“I am waiting for the death of Victor”

Patrick

I do differ…. *I would be appalled to see near death ole Victor even touching ED’ Ashley”

creepazoid

Tani Sterling

I hope there isn’t any marriage. Stitches character has been so desecrated that he needs to be rehabilitated. These almost incestuous storylines are too numerous for me.

On the other hand, someone raised the issue of new Billy being drawn to Phyllis. Was it clearly established that Jack and Phyllis were legally married by that crazy fellow on the island? In addition, do you think the issue of who hit the young girl has been put to rest following Adam’s trial?

I’ve missed some programs and don’t understand why Billy was the predominate guilty party regarding Paragon.

CeeCee

You are do right, Tani. I never thought about it that way, but ‘incestuous’ comes pretty close. Watch the PTB soras Faith, just for Ben.

Timmm

They better not! #1 That actress is just the cutest little daisy and #2 I already vomit every time Stitch has his cantaloupe looking head snuggling next to the beautiful Melissa Ordway! I dont need to see another pretty blonde snuggling with Son of a Stitch!

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
