TV Guide spoke with the man in charge of bringing The Daytime Emmys to television, David McKenzie, the executive producer of the show from Associated Television International. McKenzie weighed in on how the recent cancellations of One Life to Live and All My Children might effect the broadcast.

McKenzie stated, “We know the fans are hurting a lot right now and that they really care about what’s happening to their programs. We’re going to show them that we care, too.  We’ll do something very special to acknowledge what’s happened  (referring to cancellations of OLTL and AMC)— something the fans are really going to love. But these soaps are still on the air and they’ll both qualify for Daytime Emmys in 2012. We are not ready to say goodbye.”

Also noted in the conversation was that ATI has booked such Vegas favorites as:  Marie Osmond, Gladys Knight, Penn and Teller, Criss Angel and the Cirque du Soleil hit Viva Elvis. to appeat on the telecast.  The list of presenters includes Anderson Cooper, Carol Burnett, Marlee Matlin, Dr. Mehmet Oz, Nate Berkus, Rachael Ray, Dr. Travis Stork, Vanna White, Peter Marshall, Jillian Michaels, Kelly Monaco, Kimberly McCullough, Genie Francis, Galen Gering, Nadia Bjorlin, Darnell Williams, Debbi Morgan, Katherine Kelly Lang and Brandon Beemer.

If you really want to show appreciation for the soap genre, then show more clips of the nominated shows and performers. The last two telecasts were more of a display of 1)the new shows coming on The CW and last year 2)the Vegas acts and other daytime talk shows, rather than scenes from the soaps themselves.

Looks like a repeat of last year – Vegas acts predominant on a daytime
awards show. Also, presenters who have nothing to do with daytime
soaps. What happened to having actual presenters from the soap
operas!

Not thrilled with the presenter list. I’m not interested in the game shows, Oprah or the Vegas people. IMHO, the presenters should be our favorite soap actors and actresses, past and present.

The Chew Cancelled After 7 Seasons; A Slice Of Justice For All My Children Fans?

Karma is a bitch! ABC announced yesterday that the foodie series The Chew has been axed after seven seasons. 

The Chew lost significant viewers when ABC fired main co-host chef, Mario Batali after reports of alleged sexual harassment over many years. Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, and Michael Symon have remained the regular series hosts.

In addition, The Chew dropped 17% with women in the 18-49 demo and this has been its least watched season since its debut in 2011.  As ABC Daytime fans know, The Chew replaced iconic soap opera All My Children, when ABC made the decision to cancel the beloved soap and replace it with the food show.

So, let’s take a look at the numbers: All My Children lasted 41 years, while The Chew lasted 7 seasons. Hmm …

ABC noted that The Chew will cease production at the end of this season, but will continue to air until September with all-new episodes in June.  In addition, ABC announced that Good Morning America will expand to three hours.  Thus, switching up the ABC morning line-up.

So, are you glad that The Chew got fried?  Is this justice for All My Children fans who miss their beloved Pine Valley?  Comment below.

All My Children Alum Kim Delaney Joins The Cast of CHICAGO FIRE!

Pine Valley’s Jenny Gardner, who is all grown up and had a successful career in primetime television and films, has landed a primo role on NBC’s hit drama, Chicago Fire!

Casting news has revealed that Kim Delaney is joining the show in Season 6 where she will play the role of Jennifer Sheridan, the mother of Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney).

According to Deadline, Kim’s new role as Jennifer Sheridan is described as “warm, scripture-quoting and church-going. At one point she may have partied like it was 1979, but now it looks like she’s on the path of the straight and narrow. If you ask her, she’s moved on from the past, namely her messy divorce from her ex-husband Benny (Treat Williams), but old habits die very hard.”

Chicago Fire is currently on hiatus until after the Winter Olympics, when it begins again on March 1st.  As viewers know, in the last episode prior to the break, Kelly and Casey (Jesse Spenver) were seen jumping off a roof of a building while it was in flames in an exciting cliffhanger. (more…)
