As many watched the final episode on network television of All My Children, this past Friday, a few weeks earlier the cast taped their last scenes.  After the curtain came down, the cast gathered for some very emotional moments with AMC creator, Agnes Nixon who read her famous AMC signature lines, sang a song befitting of the moment, and toasted with the cast for a job well-done for 41 years of outstanding drama.

Surrounded by the likes of Susan Lucci (Erica) and David Canary (Adam/Stuart), Nixon was front and center and given her due by the final cast of the show, and some of the returning veterans.  In addition, a one of a kind cake was brought out that had the cast in sheer awe! Richard Ruskell, the pastry chef from the Montage in Beverly Hills, California, and the winner from a past season of Last Cake Standing donated the historic cake. A  big fan of the show, Ruskell had been working on it for over a month. It was a true work of art.

After the jump, view some final images from the cast gathering on the final day of taping as they said their goodbyes, and celebrated their achievements!

Still can’t believe its finished on TV after 41 years. That one hour seems very odd now! These are lovely pictures and i am hoping that most (including Susan) will return!

Really?????? I am so tired of Susan Luce Susan Luce Susan Luce. Yes, her body and face have got it all for the age she is, but the last few shows of her looking up to the sky at Hollywood and Vine with the wonderment and amazement of a new fresh young actress was almost too much to bear. I understand soaps are fantasy but sometimes you just need to reel in these writers and ask them if this is a ‘serious moment” or a laughable one. And then the Rhett Butler act at the end just took me over the edge.

It was one of the most memorable moments in my “daytime” life. Making the cake for All My Children was an honor. Also, back in the day i was an under-five when AMC was in NYC. I delivered a pizza to Jesse and Jenny when they were hanging out in NYC at Mrs. Gonzalez’s

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…)
