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.

Jussie Smollett Scenes Cut From ‘Empire’ In Light Of Attack Investigation

As of Tuesday, the production of Fox’s hit series, Empire has slashed Jussie Smollett’s upcoming scenes following reports that the suspicion is now on him for allegedly staging the “hate” attack he reported to the Chicago PD back on January 29th.

According to production sources viaTMZ: Jussie was supposed to have nine scenes and a big musical performance in the second-to-last episode of Season 5,  Now, five scenes and the musical number have been axed.  Smollett’s character is also no longer the focus of his remaining four scenes, which will now feature an ensemble of characters.

The actor/singer who portrays Jamal Lyon will be working Friday and possibly Thursday but won’t be rehearsing.

The Empire writers are said to have been scrambling over the last 24 hours to revise this season’s scripts.

All of this despite despite strongly expressed renewed support by Empire showrunner Brett Mahoney on February 17th.  The goal now is said to be to reduce Smollett’s role both in dramatic stints and musical performances.

Empire returns for the remainder of its fifth season on March 13.

Smollett claims he was the victim of a racist and homophobic attack near his Chicago apartment, but things took a turn when he may have paid two friends to help stage the assault.

This case is said to be going before a Grand Jury as early as today.

What are your thoughts on the latest developments in the Smollett case and Empire reducing his appearances for the remainder of the season? Comment below.

TODAY: Y&R’s Melody Thomas Scott Visits ‘The Talk’ As Her 40th Anniversary Week As Nikki Newman Kicks-Off

On today’s broadcast of the CBS afternoon series, The Talk, the ladies welcome Y&R icon, Melody Thomas Scott, who this week celebrates her incredible 40th anniversary with the show as Nikki Newman.

During her segment, Melody chats on Wednesday’s upcoming standalone episode where Nikki is in jail reflecting on her life.  Wednesday is also the exact date of Thomas Scott’s 40th anniversary with the CBS Daytime drama series.

During the segment Melody fills the ladies in on the “All About Nikki” episode, as she relates:  “I was so thrilled that they did this. It’s truly, really the life of Nikki in the entirety of the episode. It’s all about Nikki. And she’s in jail. She’s writing a letter to her grandchildren so that she can explain who she really is, how she got to where she is.  I have to narrate it, I’ve got a voice-over, a long voice-over. And then, as I’m thinking about all these different times in my life, I can’t believe I’m referring to me as her, her life, then we see the flashbacks. And for the longtime viewers, even current viewers, it is such a trip down memory lane. I mean, you are on that train and you’re not getting off…all of the clips have not been seen since they were first aired.”

In addition, Melody addresses the passing of her longtime co-star and friend, Kristoff St. John relating:  “I adored him. We all adored him. There was something very unique and magical about him. He would just draw you into his wonderful world. And all of his bear hugs, I can’t believe I’ll never get a bear hug. Going to any kind of event, any party, the first thing I said when I got there was ‘Where’s Kristoff?’ I want to find Kristoff, I want to be with him, I want to be in his air space. Because that’s the kind of guy he was, and I think that came through on camera. I think everybody sensed that, I mean everybody adored him.”

So, will you be checking out Melody on today’s episode of The Talk (2PMEST and 1PM PST) today? Comment below.
