way cool.




Sounds great! I don’t know if I will be listening live – not a good time for me…but I will download it and listen! I would LOVE to pose a couple of questions to Jeff myself…


Good for you, Michael!

Looking forward to this new venture, Michael, and thrilled to be able to hear from the dreamy Jeff Kwantinetz.


Congrats, Michael.


I sure will be listening, this us very exciting.


Veeerrrry interesting…




Congrats! Sounds like an awesome show. It’s on a bit late for me (I’m EST), but I’ll do my best to catch the shows live. Can’t wait!

This sounds wonderful, but I’d like to say honestly I am sure confused, you get this kind of news and it gives one hope that this whole concept is going to work and it’s exciting. Then you get news that the network is shutting down for hiatus even earlier than originally announced, right on the heels of the shows now only two a week instead of four. What are the ratings looking like? I am feeling frustrated as a long time fan who really looked forward to this then went through the let down then miracles of miracles, the shows do come back. I don’t know what to believe it makes it really impossible to fully embrace the whole thing when it changes every day. Im sorry Michael Fairman, what a great opportunity for you and I hate to be a downer here. I think continuity is what was always a big draw for us that love our shows, so this is unsettling and I think that’s what I have. Anyone have anything more encouraging, I’d love to hear it right now. Thanks for listening. kel


The shows have stopped filming just one week earlier than the scheduled hiatus. The ‘ratings’ on Hulu are fantastic. Both shows are consistently in the top 5 from everything I have read. You will not miss any shows…they have enough shows ‘in the can’ to air through September. Writers are continuing to write – so when they come back from the hiatus in August (hopeful the union disagreement can be worked out by then) they will not miss a beat. We won’t notice anything as viewers. I hope you keep watching…


1st question. Why does OLTL get treated like a unwanted step child. I keep seeing all these posts about AMC but not OLTL.


THIS post is about both shows and mentioned both shows repeatedly.


Am I talking about this post and did I ask for anyone else’s opinion. I’m talking in general and if you haven’t noticed your not very observant.


Gee…when you post this question on this post – yes, most people would assume you are talking about this post. And when you ask a question – yes, most people would assume you are asking for an opinion. If you weren’t talking about this post and weren’t actually wanting a response to your question – WHY are you here and WHY did you post it?


Congratulations Michael!!! Can’t wait… you will be fabulous!!! This is well deserved and one of PP’s better decisions!!! Love it!!!

Debra Bardani

Just bookmarked it. I’m new to internet radio but I support my soaps. looking forward to listening

Ruth-less Joe

Sounds good. Get Carolyn Hennesy back if you can, but doing it solo is okay. As much as I loved the old podcast, new episodes went from once a month to once a year.


cant wait sounds like it will be fun, i hope michael can get Florencia on sometime, they always seem to have fun together and it seems like they enjoy there times together, and she is always funny with him. 🙂

Jeff Kwatinetz sure has brass ones to subject himself to the wrath of the fans. I hope everyone is polite. Good for him! Taking the bull by the horns and talking to us directly. IMO, it shows just how much he is invested in making this thing work. I am very much looking forward to tuning in. I will try to call in as well.

Mr. Kwatinetz, you truly are my hero. You have done what most of us thought was impossible. You have brought back Agnes Nixon’s shows and are a guardian of her legacy. I know with all the recent developments you must be fielding more negative comments than you would like. I get worried too, we are all a little gun shy but I felt the need to tell you how grateful I am. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.


Once again Liz…I agree with everything you just said! 🙂

Liz Arnold

Congratulations to you, Michael. I am very glad that you will be doing this show. I know how big a fan you are and that as a fan, you will ask the questions the fans want to hear. I’m really excited about your new collaboration with TOLN. Cudos 😉


Congrats! Keep our shows alive!


Hey, Michael. This is more than great! Will be watching and listening and calling in. .Best of luck…..


This sounds great. Can’t wait to hear it.


a big congrats to you michael!!


Sounds great


YES! I can hardly wait for this to air. People, keep watching both shows. It would be great if we could watch enough to suggest that maybe hour-length shows are warranted to make up for the 2-days of each show instead of 5 days each show. I think 2-days each show 1-hour shows would work. Anyone have any thoughts on this?


Your suggestion unfortunately, would put them right back where they were originally. I believe (and maybe someone can ask Jeff) that if we keep watching both shows (which I do!) eventually they will be increased either in length or episodes shown each week.


I will be anxiously awaiting to see what is in store for our shows. After watching since they 1st came on they have become my family. I am enjoying meeting the new members of the family & how they have grown up. Thank you so much for being my family back home again.


Yes remember to spread the word that we need our views back all of them & new ones too. Numbers need to continuously stay up in the 500,000’s. This is the number that shows the advertiser’s we are serious about our shows & if you can start purchasing products from these sponsors & let them know why you are taking the time to purchase their product. They are paying for our shows to be on. If everyone can get 1 person back or a new one to watch we will be in a position to ask for things. We as fans said that we would pay for our shows to be back then why are we complaining because of the prices. They have given us our shows back & they have given us 3 avenues of watching them. Right now they just can’t get any easier. Join all of us that currently watch everyday & if you want you can watch over & over on the weekends.


Smart cookie!


Of course I will. Love my shows, and Michael too!


Good for you! I am happy for you and know you will enjoy the show.

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:

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…)
