In an interview out today with the Chicago Tribune, All My Children, creator Agnes Nixon discusses her life in soaps, her two guest appearances in Pine Valley starting today reprising the role of Agnes Eckhardt, and the series upcoming move to the web via Prospect Park!  Nixon confirms she will remain a consultant with the series when it move online, and she had some very interesting things to say about how the show will tie up its story!  Here are a few excerpts below:

Nixon on staying with the show when it moves to the Internet: “Yes, I’ll be the creative consultant. Sometimes there are writers who don’t want my help, but for the most part I have the big ideas. We’re going to have a hiatus, you know, for three months. And the head of Prospect Park (the production company taking over the shows) said, “We’ve got to have a big cliffhanger for that three months.” And so I came up with one which I can’t tell you. But they loved it.”

Nixon on AMC being replaced by a talk show called “The Chew”: (Nixon starts laughing before the question has been fully asked and keeps chuckling as she answers.) “I know.  It seems an odd choice. I think the name is — what are they chewing?”

Agnes is one classy and talented lady. AMC has been 1,000% better with her and Loraine doing the writing rather than the old GL team. Love her comment about “The Chew”- too funny.

What to you want to bet that Ricky isn’t really dead and he comes back at the end and Jack and Erica are finally getting married and everyone in town is there. Maybe he will set a bomb off and we won’t know who lives or who dies until January.

Since I have not watched AMC since the 80’s I hope it works out for all of you AMC fans but I am sorry this Dr. Hayward resurecting everyone from the dead well all I can say is REALLY!

Agnes I watched from day 1 when AMC came on tv. Of course they didn’t have vcrs, tito, dvrs in those days so I could only watch when I was on vacation or on a sick day. I love AMC and all the cast members. I just hope that most of the cast will go to Prospect Parks show. If not AMC will be in my heart forever and thats for creating such a wonderful show. AMC FOREVER!!!

I will not be watching anything on ABC after “All My Children” ends. I am sick of moronic reality shows, etc. written to meet the dumbing down of society. Furthermore, I am considering cutting off cable TV and just watching DVDs.

This show has so much gas left in the Tank. Agnes really needs to pull some skeletons out of the closet …specifically from the past. Why not bring Margo back from the Caribbean (she married a Banana Baron) with Claudette’ s twin (Paulette) ? Margo could fill the Phoebe void and Paulette could be Erica’s new rival. Cast Terri Ivens as Paulette daughter for multi generational cat fights.

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!

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…)
