On last night’s Chelsea Lately, host Chelsea Handler talked about Friday the 13th being the end of One Life to Live and how the entire cast was fired, and how her brother, Roy is devastated about the cancellation ( You can hear how Chelsea explained his devastation in the video clip).

Then came the part we love. Chelsea informed the audience that one of the shows that has filled the soap opera void is the cooking talk show, The Chew!  She then goes into, “Soap Opera fans turn that frown upside down because now you can enjoy entertainment like this!” Cue clip from The Chew of a rapping Daphne Oz and Carla Hall!  Hilarious.  Awful.

Watch the stand-up and then the clip from Chelsea Lately and let us know what you think of The Chew co-hosts Oz and Hall?  OMG! What has happened to our beloved daytime line-up?  It’s baffling!

Wow. The Chew might as well be called The Dumbest Show Ever. Seriously? THAT is what replaced OLTL?! Never tuning into daytime ABC ever again (except for GH– until they cancel that too!). They could at least put on decent shows in place of the soaps. I feel like I just lost brain cells from watching that clip. 🙁

ok so i wont judge a book by its cover but i decided to watch the spew (chew for you non sopers) with my grandma and it was just terrible. but congratulations abc, you’ve invented a whole new form of reality tv. its not a cooking talkshow, or a regular talk show like the view or the talk. its something so unbearible that they attempted to combine the two. if you want a cooking talk show watch rachel ray or something. but in the attempts to reinvent themselves. kudos to you abc. you have “techincaly” reinvented yourself but not in a good way. the worst way posible. I’ve never heard of one channel containing TWO shows with nicknames. the spew and the revoltion. you have killed part of all of us. and turned us into zombies with our show’s replacement.

Even if I wanted to watch the chew (I don’t…stopped watching all ABC now that the soaps are cancelled) I hate batali and that Carla Hall is just too freaky…can’t look at her too long……….

I tuned in the The Revolution to hear Tim Gunn tell women not to wear ‘bulky’ clothes in winter. Made no sense, changed channel.

I saw the last minute of The Chew, they had bunch of people standing around a table eating. Carla Hall asked someone if the food was ‘so good it would make you slap your moma’. Perplexed looks till one of the other ladies tried to come to her rescue. WTF does that mean?

ABC daytime is just so horrible now, isn’t it Michael? Frons systematically destroyed AMC but no matter how ‘bad’ that got this is just so much worse it’s unwatachable.

How is poor General Hospital going to fare following this crap? I’d be interested in how the ratings are the next few weeks.

I think it’s fitting. Just goes to show you what ABC knows and thinks about their daytime audience. They really believe that this s**t is what we want to watch? 2 shows that suck and the icing on the cake is they will be bring a washed out, used up Katie Couric to their line up come September! Katie had her 15 minutes. It must be a goal of hers to fail on all 3 major networks. ABC should just wipe the egg off their faces, admit they made a huge mistake and put our soaps back on the air. Then and only then will their daytime audience (the best & the most loyal fans!!) will return.

WOW FREAKING WOW!! Now I can SEE why The Chew is so much “cheaper” to produce than a soap. Talk about GARBAGE TV!!!! ABC has made the biggest of all blunders in cancelling long running soaps for these debacles!!! What demographic is supposed to want to watch this???? Makes me sick to think we lost our 40+ year soaps for that!! I will NEVER tune into ABC again.

i thought the clip was funny. but I do have to ask this, only because I don’t watch the chew, Did they really do that on the show ? If they did, OMG that is AWFUL !!! I can’t believe they think we would watch a show like that, JUST AWFUL !!!! ABC/Disney, KARMA is coming your way !!!!!

Wow! ABC is the joke of all the networks! I watched AMC and OLTL for 40 plus years. I am getting better with the grief that I am watching NBC’s One Life to Live.
I hate ABC!

I love Chelsea also, dvr her talk show every night. She has talked about and shown clips of OLTL over the years so obviously someone there is a fan and watches it every day. She said she grew up watching soaps so maybe OLTL was one of them.
Go Chelsea!

OK – My decision stands! I will NEVER watch the spawns of Frons!! There are no words to describe that clip!!

It seems to defy rational explanation. Perhaps ABC has a secret government research contract to investigate just how low American IQs are that anybody would watch this. Or maybe ABC sold its soul to the devil and asked for a higher share price in exchange for destroying daytime television. Or ABC is stupid enough to think most viewers are stupid because executives actually thought someone might watch the primetime comedy Work It.

Really sad. However, I thought Handler’s monologue and that clip were hilarious! Carla Hall making a complete fool of herself, followed with Hander remarking “Happy Martin Luther King Day!”

The whole thing is unfortunate.

Cute clip. As for ABC, they want to save money. Well, guess they never heard the old saying about getting what you pay for, right? They used to spend money and had 43 years of devoted fans. Now they don’t want to spend a dollar. What do they have?? Garbage television that nobody will watch and soon no sponspor will want to spend their money on either. I bet CBS and NBC is loving every minute of this.

Never watched the spew and never will. Same goes for the revulsion. Hear that ABC.

How to Get Away With Murder To End After Its Upcoming Sixth Season

ABC has announced that Professor Annalise Keating (Viola Davis), and those cagey law students of hers, will receive some closure and exciting endings as How to Get Away with Murder will come to a conclusion after its season six. The upcoming 15-episode final season will premiere on Thursday, September 26 at 10 PM.

Series creator Peter Nowalk said in a statement released today: “Deciding to end this series was a brutal decision, but ultimately the story tells you what to do – as it did here.  For me, Annalise Keating’s journey has always had a clear ending.  Knowing I have 15 episodes left to finish her story, and the chance to give all the characters their own killer endings, is a gift rarely given to a series creator and I’m grateful to ABC and ABC Studios for the opportunity and creative freedom. I am so thankful to the brilliant cast, writers and crew for dedicating themselves to the most rewarding experience of my career over the last six years. I also want to thank our fans. The only reason this show exists is because of your loyalty and enthusiasm. I can’t wait for you all to see how it ends, with twists and turns and all the craziness we love to create every Thursday night. Buckle up.”

The final season will follow the perils of Professor Annalise Keating’s class through their final semester in law school with much deceit and murder going along with it!

Karey Burke, President, ABC Entertainment. said in a statement on the conclusion of the series: “Viola Davis made television history with her unforgettable portrayal of iconic female antihero Annalise Keating.  I am eternally grateful to her, Pete Nowalk and Shondaland for creating and bringing to life such a smart, sophisticated and groundbreaking series that has long been an integral part of Thursday nights on ABC.”

How to Get Away with Murder burst on to primetime TV screens back in 2014, and helped formed the Shondaland programming block along with Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal.

The final season stars Davis along with the current cast comprised of: Billy Brown, Jack Falahee, Aja Naomi King, Matt McGorry,, Charlie Weber, Liza Weil Conrad Ricamora, former ‘Bold and the Beautiful’ star Rome Flynn, and Amirah Vann.

OLTL Favorite Mark Lawson Appears On General Hospital

Viewers of ABC daytime were in a for a surprise (although rumors had been circulating), when former One Life to Live alum, Mark Lawson showed up on Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital.   In it, Mark came on to the Port Charles scene as Dustin Phillips, a man Lulu (Emme Rylan) was meeting with at the Metro Court for her “story” on online dating, and a potential suspect in the home burglaries tied to a dating app.

Meanwhile, while Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) is away originally being deprogrammed from his nightmare in Turkey, Peter (Wes Ramsey) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) got news from Mac (John J. York) that there may be a lead to his whereabouts in Ithaca, New York,

Maxie is taking it upon herself to locate Dante and bring him back to Lulu.  In addition, when she noticed Lulu enjoying the company of Dustin a bit too much, she was somewhat alarmed that her bff would be having a good time with another man.

It’s been a minute since daytime fans have seen Lawson, who played Navy Seal, Brody Lovett on One Life.  His character was involved with Jessica (Bree Williamson) and all of her alters: Tess, Bess, Wes, et,c and also Jessica’s sister, Natalie (Melissa Archer).

Once fans got wind of his GH appearance, Lawson posted on Instagram along with his workout videos: “Well .. cat’s out of the bag, Stay soapy, my friends.”

So, will Mark continue on GH as a new love interest for Lulu?  Could Dustin be tied to the crimes Lulu is investigating? Would you like to see Lulu move on with her life if Dante is off the canvas for a long time, or do you hope Dominic Zamprogna returns, and there becomes a triangle, or none of the above? Let us know what should happen for Luly in the romance department via the comment section below.
