You don’t have to watch the show if you don’t want to. By the way, why are you yelling?

Wise up ABC and stop these reunions… unless you are testing the waters to bring back All My Children and One Life To Live !

Funny. ABC brings back beloved actors from its once legacy daytime drama to help boost ratings of yet another talker brought in to replace it. Would have been nice to see the web give more support to the show in its final decade. I know ALL MY CHILDREN is never coming back, but the genre is not dead. Maybe the Alphabet can come get back into the game with a pair of half-hour dramas to help resurrect what was once — and can continue to be — a thriving program option.

Still, I am glad to see ABC remember its talent and history.

Why the name change to Strahan and Sara??????????? Low ratings ??????????
Nope, won’t be checking it out. Liked Sara on The View. Strahan? Can you say “overexposed”? What is the deal with the networks giving the same person multiple shows? Spread the wealth? Why not? Different personalities appear to different people. Makes sense, no?

Guess Kelly Ripa won’t be appearing.
But seriously, how cool…and during the old AMC time-slot
PS…Ms. Susan Lucci, so glad she is now well.

No I will not be watching. You’re advertising the entire cast and Kelly Ripa was paet of that show and her husband too.

Why hasn’t a soap scooped up Susan Lucci? B&B should and make her Margo Spencer, she be perfect in the role. Recast Mark, it would be $Bill’s half brother and could you imagine Susan and Don playing off each other…HOT! Great entertainment!

Just a guess, Susan May be enjoying her retirement. And Susan did have heart surgery recently. Susan may want to spend her time with her husband, children and grandchildren.

WATCH: All My Children Reunion On Strahan & Sara

On Monday’s episode of ABC’s Strahan & Sara, the show welcomed several stars of the beloved All My Children for a reunion, of sorts. Joining hosts Michael Strahan and Sara Haines were Susan Lucci (Erica), Walt Willey (Jack), Cady McClain (Dixie), Jacob Young (JR) and Jill Larson (Opal).

While it was wonderful to see the stars from Pine Valley again, it was also a painful reminder that this network, ABC, canceled the show, and had put in its place – The Chew, and now Strahan & Sara – since canning the series.   In fact, as you will see on the clips below, many of the crew who work on this talk show were once the crew for All My Children.

During the segment, Susan Lucci was tested to see if she remembered all of Erica Kane’s wedded names.  Later, Walt Willey and Susan re-created the final scene of the ABC version of All My Children between Erica and Jack, where Jack walks out on her.  However, this time, they have Jack changing his mind and coming back to Erica and sealing their relationship with a kiss – a moment of closure that never happened (since the show moved to online via Prospect Park).

In addition, Cady McClain and Jacob Young re-created the infamous Dixie “dying from eating poison pancakes” scene, as JR watches his mother die, only this time she lives.

It’s always great to see these veteran performers, but Strahan & Sara is trying to capture the soap viewers to put eyeballs on their show by bringing in talent from the show that sadly and wrongly went off the air.

Watch the clips below from the All My Children reunion below.  Then, let us know what you thought of it via the comment section below.

All My Children’s Candace Earley Nolan Passes Away At 68

She played Pine Valley’s Donna Beck for 18 years, and over the weekend the soap world also lost Candace Early Nolan.  The former daytime actress died last Thursday, January 31, 2019, after an 8-year struggle with Multiple Systems Atrophy.

Earley was on ABC’s All My Children from 1976 to 1992 and returned in both 1993 and 1995.  In story, Donna started out in Pine Valley as a prostitute.  She had romances with Dr. Chuck Tyler and then at one time, Palmer Cortlandt.  Candace also appeared on Broadway in Jesus Christ SuperstarGrease, and South Pacific, to name a few.

In her obit it mentions that while eating lunch at world-famous Sardi’s in New York, a Casting Director of ABC daytime television asked,  “Who is that attractive mid-western looking type across the room?”.  Shortly thereafter she was cast as “Donna” on AMC.

Check out this clip of Earley with Richard Van Vleet as Chuck Tyler in a scene from her time on AMC below.

Then, share your condolences and remembrances of Candace via the comment section below.
