It just does not seem right to be having a “celebration” that day. A funeral would be more appropriate.

Wait until January 16th when you turn on your television set on ABC at 2:00pm and you realize that there’s no One Life to Live on the air.

I never watched Guiding Light, As the World Turns or All My Children. But I’m about the find out what the fans of these shows went through when their soap was cancelled.

I was never a regular viewer of OLTL or AMC but watched ATWT for years. I can tell you it is NO fun watching “your” soap go off the air for good. I still feel there is a hole during the day when ATWT was on the air.

It really is a shame that all of these shows are leaving the air. Frankly, I do not pull all of the blame on the networks. The producers and the writers have some blood on their hands as well. While OLTL may be the exception as it sounds like the quality might still be there, the rest of them had horrific writing and production decisions in their final years.

Sadly, I am almost certain that another of “my” shows, Y&R, will be joining these shows in the “scrap heap” in the next couple of years. The writing for Y&R has been godawful for a while and shows no signs of improvement.

Actually I think they’ll all be gone by 2020 in that respective order 1) GH 2) DAYS 3) B&B and 4)Y&R

I want to throw a question out there to all my OLTL fans…just to see if I’m the only one that believes this. With the finale of OLTL looming, who else thinks that it was a bad decision for Ron Carlivati to leave the show with a big cliffhanger? Now, I realize that this was all decided when everyone was under the belief that Prospect Park was going to pick up where the network left off, but I believe that it would have been a better decision to go ahead and write the finale as if the show wasn’t coming back. This way the fans aren’t left wondering what was supposed to happen next. I mean, if you are a writer, you should be able to pick the story up, no matter where you left off. So, the decision to do this BIG cliffhanger, just to keep the viewer on the edge of their seat, will be a decision that I’m sure that will be regretted. Don’t get me wrong, I believe that Ron is a spectacular writer, and I have been entertained for many years….but I’m just hoping that this finale doesn’t leave a bitter taste in my mouth, like the AMC finale did. Just curious as to what other people think.

Michael E. Knight Joins General Hospital

Suffice to say, this is one piece of casting news that made us very happy to hear! General Hospital has cast multi-Daytime Emmy winner, and beloved All My Children favorite, Michael E. Knight in a mystery role on the ABC soap.

Knight, who played Pine Valley’s Tad Martin on and off from 1982 to 2011 on ABC’s All My Children, will begin taping scenes soon when GH returns from its mid-summer production break.

As to who will Michael play? That is being kept under-wraps.  But Knight’s new GH castmate and his former AMC castmate, James Patrick Stuart (Valentin) enthused on the announcement: “I am thrilled, are you kidding me? I love that guy. He’s excited, too; it’s been a while for him. It’s going to be really fun to have him on my turf. I would love to share scenes with him.”

Soap viewers last saw Knight in his role as Dr Simon Neville on The Young and the Restless back in 2015.

So who do you think Michael will play on the GH canvas?  Could he reprise Tad but in Port Charles, since ABC has the rights now to the characters from AMC and OLTL? Stay tuned.

Excited by the news of Michael to GH? Comment below.
