In addition, we learn what Darnell and Debbi thought of their time over at The Young and the Restless as Sarge and Harmony, what they think will happen on AMC now that David appears to be an interloper in their now rocky marriage, and what happened when Darnell and Debbi met for the first time decades ago! Did they like each other?  You will find out!

Plus, Michael names the Power Moments of the Week for both All My Children and One Life to Live!  See if you agree with his picks!  And he takes a look at the social issue storylines currently airing on All My Children which continues in the shows tradition created by Agnes Nixon.

I wish Angie would stop her constant crying and be the strong Angie I use to love..
I am so sick and tired of her crying every second, I FF her ..

Lovin Jessie!!!

The woman’s daughter was kidnapped, doped up, raped and impregnated. I’d hate to see how you’d react if that happened to your daughter. That poor child.

so what, it is a soap story and Angie crying through every scene including her scenes with David and Jesse and everyone else within 2 feet of her, for weeks.
I’d rather see Angie being her usual strong self and not a crying weak woman.
I gotta FF through her constant crying/first time I ever FF Angie..

i agree with you scott – if that was my daughter they would have had to sedate me by now…….angie’s reactions are very true to life!

Then Su it shows what little compassion you have for victims who deal with this kind of pain every single day in their lives. Once again, hope you never have a child go through something like this or worse. Because the people around you won’t be able to fast-forward through your constant crying. I’d be so sick of it.

Casandra went through it and she is stronger and than Angie..
Angie hasn’t even gone back to work, her responsibility to run a hospital..

Angie is being portrayed as a weak woman, I dont like that.
Angie has been a crying basket case for a month, in every scene with everyone she comes in contact with, that is not the in charge strong Angie I knew for decades..
Casandra is doing better than Angie with dealing with it..
And it is a soap story, nothing more or less, and Angie has become an irrational irritation crying for a month ..
Angie would be strong, a rock, to help Casandra through it, not a weak crying woman who cant even attend to her job where a whole hospital depends on her.
She does nothing but constantly cry and neglects all her responsibility’s of her and others lives..
I want the real Angie back..

I’d hardly call Cass handling it better than Angie is. I still do not see it from your point of view. It’s very disgusting to see it through your eyes. I stand by my earlier comments.

Angie and Jessie are a great super couple and I hope they never split up. Angie is really expressing multiple emotions and I hope she will be up for a Emmy next year. Jessie, you have been great also but Angie is out acting you in the emotional scenes. It seems like in previous scenes on network t.v. that you played a more invested character. Dig deeper, Jessie. You used to be really into your roles. Still love you both and I want each of you to win a Emmy. How great would that be?

Hi Michael,

Why are you using OLTL music to introduce AMC actors…..

I loved this podcast, these two are the best! They are so genuine. Thanks Michael.

On Valentine’s Day, Mark took to his Instagram and Kelly took to hers, posting pics and snaps of their love for one another. Consuelos shared: “My forever Valentine…You make smile♥️♥️” to which Ripa replied “Ten Hearts.”

‘Live with Kelly and Mark’ Scores Most-Watched Week of Syndicated Talk Shows in 2 Years; Delivers Strongest Week in Nearly 3 Years

In another case of soap alums doing great things, come news that former All My Children stars and real-life marrieds Kelly Ripa (ex-Hayley) and Mark Consuelos (ex-Mateo) are having a great ride together as on-screen co-hosts of the syndicated morning series, Live with Kelly and Mark.

New numbers were just released by ABC that share that during the week of January 15-19 2024: Live with Kelly and Mark hit series highs in Households (1.81 rating) and Total Viewers (2.673 million). Interestingly enough, former GH star, Rick Springfield (ex-Noah Drake) appeared on the show that week performing with friend and musician, Richard Marx.)

But there is more good news: Live with Kelly and Mark delivered the franchise’s strongest week in nearly 3 years in both Households and Total Viewers, as well as double-digit week-to-week increases in key demos over the last three weeks.

With 2.673 million Total Viewers, ‘Live’ delivered the most-watched week of any syndicated talk show in 2 years ( since Dr. Phil second week of January in 2022).

In even more solid gains for this ratings report: the talker stood as the week’s top  daytime talk show in Households (1.81 rating) and Total Viewers (2.673 million). ‘Live’ also ranked as the No. 1 entertainment talk show of the week across all key Nielsen measures, topping all daytime and late-night entertainment talk shows.

Overall the Live with Kelly and Mark is up 4%  from the the previous year averaging roughly 2.4M viewers across all of its episodes. ‘Live’ also stands as the season’s No. 1 entertainment talk show across all key Nielsen measures.

Consuleos arrived officially on the season on April 17th 2022 taking over for the departing Ryan Seacrest to co-host the show with Ripa. While many voiced concerns that the on-screen and off-screen coupling might make for lower ratings if they were not entertaining, just the opposite has happened, the series seems in a very healthy place; given the constant downturn in linear ratings and viewership in daytime TV.

Are you enjoying Kelly and Mark as co-hosts compared to Kelly’s other co-hosts through the years? Comment below.
