As first reported by On-Air On-Soaps last week in our brand new interview with One Life to Live’s Erika Slezak, the six-time Daytime Emmy winner along with All My Children’s Thorsten Kaye and Vincent Irizarry will be appearing on ABC’s morning talk series, The View this coming Thursday April 25th to promote the premiere episodes of the online revivals of AMC and OLTL on April 29th on Hulu, HuluPlus and iTunes!

According to ABC, the three soap star favorites will join the ladies of The View and special guest co-host singer/songwriter Gretchen Wilson whose latest album is “Right on Time”!  The View airs Weekdays from 11:00 AM – 12:00 Noon, ET/10:00 AM – 11:00 AM, PT on the ABC Television Network.

Now while many may see this as intriguing since ABC canceled AMC and OLTL, it looks as though The View knows that their audience misses their favorite soaps! 

Will you be tuning into see Thorsten, Vincent and Erika on The View this Thursday?  Let us know!

YOU ARE ALL A BUNCH OF HYPOCRITES! ABC being sued by PP but turnsaround and promotes PP reboots on ABCs The View? People claim they boycott ABC but will tune in and watch their talk show? PP sues ABC but its ok for them to allow their stars on one of their talk shows? I also wonder…how many people on here did complain about PP back in Nov. 2011 and said they didnt trust PP and said they want nothing to do with them when they announced they had abandon plans to do the reboots? But now PP got their… Read more »

So true, one way or another we are all hypocrites no matter how we try to spin it. Every network has cancelled soaps yet ABC is made to look like murderers, it’s so ridiculous, people are stupid if they think any network cares about the people, their bottom line is money, how to spend less and make more. That’s it period…

CBS cancelled two soaps…ATWT & GL…and NBC cancelled Passions but no one said they were boycotting those networks!

I find it very interesting that suddenly ABC is publicizing a show they themselves cancelled. I know exactly why, it was mentioned as a factor in the suit with Prospect Park. Part of the deal was they were supposed to help promote the shows, which they had not done at all up to this point! Just like releasing the URL’s for the shows suddenly to PP after news of the lawsuit broke. They are trying to make the suit look as they it has no merit. I read the entire lawsuit and everything in it, from my perspective appears legitimate.… Read more »

Really, there are so many ways to watch The View, I’m not home during the daytime as many people aren’t, I have to work – but I can watch The View show on You Tube and it won’t count (well, I don’t think so) towards ratings…or does it? I surely would like to hear what these three well-known soap veterans have to say about everything, I’m sure it will be on the positive side though some of these actors have been known to be very blunt in expressing their feelings. I don’t like what abc-tv did, but if these shows… Read more »

so pp is suing abc but the view is promoting amc an oltl? ok, yeah, this makes sense! NOT!, it feels like ABC and PP is playing us for fools, and we always fall for it.

I have always thought boycott talk of the abc network was silly and hypocritical. How many boycotters pick and choose programs. They say they watch general hospital and the view is ok. Wonder how many watch sports, the academy awards, modern family and countless other shows on abc. Nielsen ratings prove significant numbers even watch the chew as their ratings are pretty good. Networks cancel shows al the time.. All my children ratings were greatly eroded and the show was almost cancelled in2007 when things really started to tank. I think the prospect park story is interesting to follow but… Read more »

Nice post…some of these people claim they boycott abc but then turn around and will watch one of there talk shows? What hypocrites! I bet half of them do watch some shows on ABC! I dont mind the newbies or young crowd but i do believe if these shows are around in a few years the vets will be pushed to backburner and barely used. They are only there to draw in the long time die hard fans for ratings because PP hopes theyll spread the word to younger viewers these shows are on. You do need younger viewers to… Read more »

I don’t care who the guests are-I cannot stand The View. They are loud, obnoxious & talk over each other & get on my last nerve. And I don’t think they truly respect or understand soaps, I really don’t. They kind of make fun of them & yeah, I know soaps can get crazy & but I can criticize since I really love them but I DO NOT like non-soap lovers to make fun of them! It’s like I can gripe about my husband but nobody else better. Anyway, can’t wait for the 29th-long live all of our soaps. To… Read more »

I wonder if ABC does indeed get served with the lawsuit that Prosepct Park has filed if they will pull these guests from appearing on The View.

PP and ABC should completely sever ties with each other by ABC selling all rights to PP.

The “rent” (licensing fees) PP pays ABC is nearly $10M per year. The 10+ year license they have is already worth $100M to ABC plus their cut of any profits. Why would they sell their valuable property? And where would PP ever find the cash to pay them enough to make them give up all that perpetual passive income? ABC is NOT trying to sabotage this cash cow, nor are they trying to give up all that money. If anything, if PP keeps making themselves a legal or otherwise pain in the heinie, ABC may eventually simply take the rights… Read more »

Some of the start up cash came from government grants, this was well documented in 2011. I have no idea if grants are still involved. Cannot figure out how prospect park will pay the bills much less their royalties to abc. This is more interesting than the actual show from a business standpoint.
I bet the actors have concerns as well but they cannot say so publicly and most have no job offers elsewhere.

Where exactly was this “well documented”.

“most have no job offers elsewhere.” Boy it is funny how many ppl think they know what goes on in the private lives of these actors!

TONIGHT: Kim Delaney Stars in Lifetime’s ‘The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice’

Make sure to catch General Hospital and former All My Children and NYPD Blue star, Kim Delaney (Jackie, GH, Ex-Jenny, AMC) tonight on Saturday, February 20th when her highly-anticipated Lifetime movie debuts beginning at 8pm EST/7pm CST which marks the cable network’s 400th original movie.

In The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice, it tells the story of Mari Gilbert’s search for the truth behind what happened to her daughter Shannan, a sometime escort who disappeared after a ‘date’ on Long Island.

After Shannan (Katharine Isabelle, Hannibal) fails to come home, her mother Mari (Delaney) knows something is terribly wrong. Pleading to police to take her concerns seriously, she keeps pushing the police for answers. Mari’s insistence that her daughter not be overlooked eventually leads to a horror hidden on Long Island for more than a decade – 19 bodies of young women discovered buried in shallow graves along Ocean Parkway in the area of Jones Beach State Park. Though the search for the killer is still ongoing, Mari’s passionate dedication to giving her daughter and other forgotten women a voice, and the attention they deserve, has kept the case alive with hopes of a breakthrough soon. The movie not only follows a mother’s tireless search for the truth, but it also digs deep into the murders, including Shannan’s, that have gone unsolved for so long.

Delaney’s film, executive produced by Deborah Norville, is based off real life-events that transpired in the early 2010’s where the crimes were never solved.

In an interview with 98.1 WOGL Radio’s Glenn Kalina, Delaney shared: “There is hope in the film… but you also want an answer… what happened to all of these girls?  My character just was relentless trying to find her (daughter) or find answers where she was.  They found a bunch of other bodies, and what they learned was that they were all escorts… and then they learned there was a possible serial killer.”

Check out a promo for the movie below.

‘ABC Daytime: Back on Broadway’ Raises $130,565 For Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS In Four Day Streaming Event

Last week, ABC Daytime fans were thrilled to see some of the archival footage and performances from the ABC Daytime: Salutes Broadway Cares benefit concerts by those who were once in the mighty soap programming block that included: All My Children, One Life to Live and General Hospital. 

While only GH remains, viewers still loved seeing many of their favorites perform in the streaming event, ABC Daytime: Back on Broadway, from Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, which featured footage from those events that ran from 2005-2011 in front of a live audience in New York City.

The 2021 online event, which kicked-off on February 11th and streamed for four days, featured new content with daytime favorites including: Susan Lucci, Cameron Mathison, Anthony Geary, Kelly Ripa and more, plus performances from the past benefits, and an original dance performance from Finola Hughes (Anna Devane) on the set of GH.

John Dietrich, who directed each of the ABC Daytime Salutes Broadway Cares concerts, wrote and directed the stream. It was presented in partnership with ABC Owned Television Stations’ websites around the country with support from Good Morning America and The View.

According to Broadway World, in total, the ABC Daytime Back on Broadway event raised $130,565. The streaming total includes a matching donation of $50,000 made by Broadway Cares supporters The Dream Alliance.  Now, when combined with the seven-year run of the annual concerts, the ABC Daytime stars have raised $2,020,565 for Broadway Cares.

As part of the event week, Michael Fairman chatted with former One Life to Live star, Catherine Hickland (Ex-Lindsay Rappaport) about her performances over the years at the event, her role of Lindsay and her on-screen feud with Nora (Hillary B. Smith), and more.  You can watch it below.

Kelly Ripa on All My Children Primetime Reboot: “It’s a Darker Look at things, and I’m Very Excited About It.”

According to talk-show host, executive producer, and former All My Children star, Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley), the highly-anticipated reboot in the works of the beloved soap, will be focused on the children of familiar characters from the town of Pine Valley and have a much darker feel than its original daytime counterpart.

The series that everyone has been talking about is, of course, Pine Valley, which is being executive produced by Ripa, along with her husband, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo), and Andrew Stearn.

Kelly, who is celebrating her 20th year on ‘Live’, spoke with Entertainment Weekly where part of the conversation turned to what she could share on the AMC reboot.

Ripa expressed how the original cast would fit into the new updated version of the soap: “We would be the parents, and this show is really more about the children of Pine Valley.”

She went on to say, “It’s a darker look at things, and I’m very excited about it. It was pitched to us and we were like, ‘We will absolutely produce this. And we want to be a part of it.’ Immediately we called Eva LaRue (Ex-Mara), all of our friends, and we started saying, ‘Just be at the ready. Get ready.’ ”

Just as fans are excited about the return to Pine Valley, so is Ripa: “All My Children is responsible for every singular good thing that has happened in my life. I met my husband there, I had my children there – not in the studio but pretty close; they kept you there until your contractions were five minutes apart, as we like to say.  It’s from there that I got the talk show. It’s from there that I got Hope & Faith…. and our first production deal. So it’s truly responsible for every good thing in my life that’s happened to me.”

So what do you think about the edgier All My Children on the way? Who would you like to see cast in the younger set to play some of the kids, and their love interests, of the Santos and Kane families, etc? Comment below.
