Well, you really can’t do a reboot of All My Children without Dr. Angie Hubbard now can you?  With that said, there is more great news for soap fans this afternoon. Daytime Emmy winner, Debbi Morgan has announced via her Twitter page that she has signed on for the All My Children reboot!

As has been reported, Debbi joins previously announced commitments from Vincent Irizarry and Lindsay Hartley to be a part of Prospect Park’s online venture in resurrecting the beloved town of Pine Valley!  What’s even more delightful about the news is that today mark’s the anniversary of All My Children, which first aired on ABC, January 5th, 1970!

Morgan tweeted the news of her joining the cast of the reboot stating,  “OK, I can finally announce how thrilled I am 2 B on board w/the “All My Children” re-boot & Prospect Park! Agnes Nixon, you’re my HERO!!!”

So soapers, are you excited that Debbi has signed on for AMC online?  Let us know!

Finally,some good news about the cast!!!! Now they need to sign Darnell Williams away from Y&R.

I’ve been dubious but Debbi Morgan… that’s some serious soap cred there. She’s as close to dependable soap royalty as it gets. Staying cautiously optimistic …..

Agreed.

HUGE get! And a much wiser choice for her than when she chose YR over AMC (though I can’t blame her for it….and it gave her a year’s paycheck she wouldn’t have had otherwise, but ultimately it was not a good fit for her).

I made the decision today that if this all goes through, and it will be provided in Canada, I will pay for AMC and OLTL in support of the shows. I never thought of actually going through with it before, but decided that if it does, I want to be a part of it.

Love debbie morgan!!! Shaping up quite nicely. Bring it home PP!!!

Yes! She was on my wish list of actors to be asked to join the reboot.

I now have no doubts that AMC and OLTL will live again !!
I am loving it !1
Excited to see the first episode!!

When is the first episode? I am so excited!

I’m not a follower of All My Children, but that is great news!

SO glad to have Angie on board . I have noticed that those signed are all playing doctors … guess the hospital will be prominent.

This is great. It does sound positive. But it will seem really strange, odd, almost un AMC if they cannot get Susan Lucci. Hopefully something can be arranged with Deadly Affairs and Devious Maids that will allow Lucci to do all. If there is a conflict at the beginning and because AMC may want to start while Lucci is filming Devious Maids they could always kill off Ërica Kane and Jesse who is on Y and R. Have a very sad funeral and bring her back later when she is free claiming there was a huge cover up of a prison break out and it was really Jane Campbell who was seeking revenge Erica was free while she was in jail. Erica then can come back from the dead like AMC. But it would be even greater if they could just film a close up of Jack and Erica and Erica dying (Jane) in Jack’s arms just for ratings. 🙂

Debbi–Agnes Nixon is MY hero, too. I can’t believe she’s made this happen.

It just amazes me how delusional some hardcore AMC/OLTL fans are about this, especially after the first go-round. There is zero concrete proof that this is 100% going to get off the ground and unless/until it does, I remain highly skeptical. PP has zero credibility with this. How about actually hearing some direct quotes from a PP executive for once?

Prospect Park execs are likely not saying much until there’s more to go on. But judging by Agnes’ words, I do believe it’s launching off the ground. More cast signing on is likely another factor into that it’s happening.

The first time there were no EPs/HWs/actors signing on. Now there are.

Chris keep your negativity to yourself. Your energy is not welcome nor your opinion!

Chris, I can appreciate your skepticism, but I don’t think it’s necessary to label people “delusional” because they’re perhaps taking a more optimistic view than may be ultimately justified.

This could still all collapse, it’s true–but on the other hand, it has gotten much further than it did when the idea was first floated, and if Agnes Nixon has come out and announced that it’s happening, she must feel the chances are pretty good.

I think the bigger question probably is whether they’ll return in a form that will satisfy viewers. I think AMC is in a better position for that than OLTL, simply because Carlivati and Valentini aren’t involved in the resuscitation of the latter. But I hope to be pleasantly surprised.

I do take your point that we haven’t heard what we need to hear from Prospect Park yet.

I can’t help but think back to my first major cancellation … and that was ATWT… I wanted to go to the Snyder Farm … and see Emma…. and Just Holden! that family, from Seth to Iva, Ellie,Caleb, Holden, Meg… I’m sure, Emma’s missing a few… she rolled in the hay… some…

anyway… that’s my optimism…. for AMC.

when is the first show and how do we find it on the web. So happy its back yeaaa!!!

This is fantastic news. Maria Arena did not excute her plans with Debbi as Harmony well. There was huge potential with the character and Debbi’s acting talents, but she mis-used them and there was no fixing them.

I cannot wait to see Dr. Angie Hubbard go back into rotation with her eyesight and beautiful baby girl!

could you see her involved with Dr. David Hayward? Debbi and Vincent killed it…knocked it out of the park…. she brought a humanity to evil Dr. Hayward that sizzled. when she was blind… he could have toyed with her… yet he told her he respected her.

I loved how these two were in the last month(s) of AMC on ABC….

No. I could not nor would not want to see a relationship between Angie Hubbard and David Hayward. That’s so wrong.

Good news!

What about OLTL ! What actors & actresses of OLTL? Have any signed up with PP yet?
That’s what I would like to know.

It’s happening, it’s really going to happen this time!! Oh happy news and day indeed!!

I am totally thrilled about Debbi Morgan coming back to AMC, and of course, I am beyond words to describe how I feel that AMC is being resurrected!!!! Way to go!!!

What a great decision.

On Valentine’s Day, Mark took to his Instagram and Kelly took to hers, posting pics and snaps of their love for one another. Consuelos shared: “My forever Valentine…You make smile♥️♥️” to which Ripa replied “Ten Hearts.”

I’d never seen it before 😯😍 – two teens with big dreams — Darnell Williams such a nice guy and so handsome we danced together a few times – a snapshot – … later like every other soap fan I loved his legendary character “Jesse” back in the golden era of daytime TV “All My Children” ❤️❤️❤️❤️ terrific actor— and I was in awe like “I knew him on ST” 😁 – before coming into my own trajectory as an artist.”

Two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Darnell Williams appeared on All My Children during several stints from 1991 to 1998, then again from 2008-2011, before reprising the role in 2013 in Prospect Park’s reboot of the series.

‘Live with Kelly and Mark’ Scores Most-Watched Week of Syndicated Talk Shows in 2 Years; Delivers Strongest Week in Nearly 3 Years

In another case of soap alums doing great things, come news that former All My Children stars and real-life marrieds Kelly Ripa (ex-Hayley) and Mark Consuelos (ex-Mateo) are having a great ride together as on-screen co-hosts of the syndicated morning series, Live with Kelly and Mark.

New numbers were just released by ABC that share that during the week of January 15-19 2024: Live with Kelly and Mark hit series highs in Households (1.81 rating) and Total Viewers (2.673 million). Interestingly enough, former GH star, Rick Springfield (ex-Noah Drake) appeared on the show that week performing with friend and musician, Richard Marx.)

But there is more good news: Live with Kelly and Mark delivered the franchise’s strongest week in nearly 3 years in both Households and Total Viewers, as well as double-digit week-to-week increases in key demos over the last three weeks.

With 2.673 million Total Viewers, ‘Live’ delivered the most-watched week of any syndicated talk show in 2 years ( since Dr. Phil second week of January in 2022).

In even more solid gains for this ratings report: the talker stood as the week’s top  daytime talk show in Households (1.81 rating) and Total Viewers (2.673 million). ‘Live’ also ranked as the No. 1 entertainment talk show of the week across all key Nielsen measures, topping all daytime and late-night entertainment talk shows.

Overall the Live with Kelly and Mark is up 4%  from the the previous year averaging roughly 2.4M viewers across all of its episodes. ‘Live’ also stands as the season’s No. 1 entertainment talk show across all key Nielsen measures.

Consuleos arrived officially on the season on April 17th 2022 taking over for the departing Ryan Seacrest to co-host the show with Ripa. While many voiced concerns that the on-screen and off-screen coupling might make for lower ratings if they were not entertaining, just the opposite has happened, the series seems in a very healthy place; given the constant downturn in linear ratings and viewership in daytime TV.

Are you enjoying Kelly and Mark as co-hosts compared to Kelly’s other co-hosts through the years? Comment below.
