The secret is out, confirmed, and now the next step is for fans of NBC’s Days of our Lives to get their first look at Daytime Emmy winner, and soap vet Vincent Irizarry in his new role as Deimos on the daytime drama series come mid-January!

After having to hold the big news for over a month, Irizarry took to his facebook page to relate his thanks and support to his long time fans and supporters who have continually rallied for this talented acting gem.

Vincent posted: “Finally!!! I’m able to share with all of you what I’ve been excitedly holding in for over a month now, that I’ve joined all the incredibly talented people in Salem over at Days of our Lives!! I honestly couldn’t be happier to be working with such wonderfully gifted people, all of whom who have been so warm and welcoming. I’m equally thrilled to be playing a character I’ve already loved playing these past weeks, with scripts that have been so wonderful, I’m excited each time I open a new one to find out what the writers have in store for me next, and alongside actors I have so much respect for. What a true, absolute pleasure it’s all been!!! Thank you so much, all of you, for your tireless support of me and my work throughout all these years together. I’m truly, truly touched by the overwhelming expressions of kind thoughts and well wishes by so many of you throughout all the social media outlets. As it has been throughout so many times in my life working on shows such as this, because of you all, my cup truly runneth over… Can’t wait to see you all in Salem!!! ‪#‎DaysOfOurLives‬”

What did you think of Vincent’s message? Excited to see the actor who has wowed audiences on Guiding Light, Santa Barbara, The Young and the Restless, and All My Children shake up Salem?  Comment below!

DAYS is really on fire. Please do not drop the ball, DAYS team, with too much stunt casting or lack of solid stories involving core families and histories. DAYS remembers the humanity better than the others. I like Salem more because it reminds me more of the lost ATWT and AMC.

Days will the soap to beat. They keep upping their game and will be a definite contender. Love Vincent’s work and will look forward to the future in Salem

Congrats to Vincent Irizarry. I am not familiar with his work because I didn’t watch those other soaps during his time there. But I wish him well in Salem!

I have missed Vincent Irizarry for years from AMC. I’m so glad he’s coming back to us on this show. I just hope they don’t hook him up with Sami. (I know, broken record: I really don’t like that train wreck of self-centeredness and destruction, Just my opinion and fear.) But I’ll be so glad to see him!!

I can see them putting him with Eve or Jennifer maybe. Vincent has chemistry with almost everyone. He and Finola Hughes were my favorite until Lindsay Hartley joined AMC and became Cara Castillo. I so wish that they had not killed off Arianna!

I agree that was a mistake…maybe somehow they can bring her back one day…liked her with Brady!!!

I can’t wait to see him share scenes with Judi Evans since I was a huge Lujack and Beth fan when he and Judi were on Guiding Light

They’re really getting a lot of great actors. The downside is we have to wait another 6 months before we see him onscreen!

When Prospect Park’s poor attempt at reviving ALL MY CHILDREN On-line failed, I felt badly for actors who were misled and left in the lurch, including Vincent in his role of a calculating Doctor. I am glad to see that he has been picked up by DOOL, I knew it would just be a matter of time before someone snatched him up –
he will be a welcomed addition to Days.

He is a wonderful actor and I hope they won’t cast him as a villain no one will like. Although he can handle any role they give him.

I am SO looking forward to his arrival. He has really been missed in daytime.

If there is one other actress I would like to see join the show, it is Colleen Zenk. I think she is a powerhouse, stunning woman.

Not a Days fan but I am a big fan of V.I. I never understood why he was not picked up earlier. I wanted him to go to Y&R. I have gotten bored with Y&R and no longer watch. I am enjoying Dynasty and The Doctors reruns. I never watched those two soaps so I am having a lot of fun watching them. I am still missing AMC and wish it would come back with Vincent!

Cameron Mathison Reveals Cancer Diagnosis and Shares Heartfelt Message

One of our the best guys we know, Cameron Mathison (co-host, Home & Family and Ex-Ryan Lavery, All My Children), revealed over the last 24 hours that he has been diagnosed with Renal Cell Carcinoma – kidney cancer, but treatment for him will be underway and the prognosis is good.

Cameron first shared the news on Monday’s Home & Family in a special announcement enlightening viewers on his health condition (watch video below) and later took to his Instagram and social media to share more details.   Of note: Mathison’s healthy lifestyle has indeed helped, and shown, that his cancer has not spread.

In addition, Mathison wrote: “About a month ago, I had an MRI for some gut issues I’ve been having, and during that MRI they fd a tumor on my right kidney. It’s consistent with Renal Cell Carcinoma … or kidney cancer. The good news is that it hasn’t spread to any other organs🙏🏼 They say my healthy lifestyle and diet has no doubt helped keep it from growing and spreading to other areas, as doctors think it’s been growing in me for minimum 10 years🙏🏼. I am extremely lucky that we found it early.” He thanked his doctor and his family, saying, “[wife] Vanessa, [kids] Lucas and Leila have been absolutely amazing with their love and support… as have my mom, dad, brother, and everyone at Home and Family, Hallmark, and ET❤️ My surgery is scheduled on September 12th, I was hoping to receive positive thoughts, prayers, or whatever you feel comfortable with, on 9/12 (my surgery is at 1pm PST) 🙏🏼.” He concluded, “Feeling very grateful and optimistic!”

8 Years To The Day Of All My Children & One Life to Live Being Canceled; Still Considered By Many Worst Move For Daytime

It’s hard to believe that 8 years ago today on April 14th, 2011, the soap world, its fans, and the cast members, learned of the heartbreaking news that ABC, in one swift move, decimated its daytime line-up when they announced the cancellations of long running series, All My Children (which would end at its 41st year), and One Life to Live (which would ends its run in its 43rd year).

At the time, ABC announced it would move to more lifestyle/entertainment series to replace these dramas.  In its place came The Chew and The Revolution, neither show is still on the air today.  Executives at that time pointed to research saying that times are changing and that their decision was “guided by extensive research into what today’s daytime viewers want,” and blame, in part, “the changing viewing patterns of the audience” for the axing of AMC and OLTL

Then ABC Daytime President, Brian Frons had joked to Deadline about the big announcement that he: “Pre-entered the witness protection program prior to today’s events.”  He added that “The demise of the two venerable soaps was actually a year in the making.  A year ago, we started to look at our projections where the ratings for the soaps would go.  When those projections came in pretty discouraging, the network began to aggressively develop replacement shows, 15 of them.  Four of the 15 were picked up to pilot: The Chew and The Revolution and two others, a talk show and a dating show. Originally, the idea was to cancel only one daytime drama.  The way the ratings developed and the pilots turned out, the ratings developed negatively and pilots developed positively, so we decided to make a bigger shift.”  Of note is that when it went off the air, One Life to Live was in third place among its competitors in the ratings.

The press release that came with the cancellations stated: “To honor the core, passionate audience and their rich history both shows will conclude in a manner that respects their legacies and the longstanding hopes of many of their viewers.”

Following the cancellations daytime reeled. The mainstream was sure it meant the endings of the soaps, period.  However, four shows illustrated that is not true at all.  For Days of our Lives, General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful and The Young and the Restless all remain, and still whether they are up or down in their numbers/ratings, they remain relevant and important to the enduring daytime viewing audience.

Sadly, as with any shows, the end of ABC’s AMC and OLTL meant loss of jobs for so many working in front of the camera and behind the scenes. One Life was the last soap opera in production in New York at the time.  AMC was already being shot in LA to cut costs to save it.

Still in 2019, if you venture on to social media, especially Twitter, you see fans constantly missing its stars and the towns of Llanview and Pine Valley, wanting this wrong rectified.  Although Prospect Park tried to revive the show with their online versions, eventually after legal battles that went on for a few years, ABC now retains the right to these properties,

The good news is that many favorites from AMC and OLTL have found success and been hired on other soap operas, bringing their followings with them, whether it be on-screen, or in the writing, producing, directing or crew departments.

So, do you think the loss of AMC and OLTL consolidated daytime and made the remaining shows stronger so they would not be touched or canceled?  Do you think ABC should try to mount a resurrected AMC and OLTL or an amalgamation of the two?  Do you remember where you were when you learned the two soaps were cancelled? Was this the worst misstep of all-time for daytime? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.
